Matt Ferranti, a multi-talented entertainer, guitarist, and songwriter, knows the importance of hard work and taking advantage of every opportunity. Hailing from Bay City, Michigan, Ferranti grew up performing contemporary Christian music at his Dad’s church before developing his signature blend of Country fused with Detroit R&B. With a move to Nashville in 2013, Ferranti quickly made a name for himself grinding away at songwriter sessions and performance rounds that included a chance meeting with an up-and-coming singer/songwriter, Brett Young, who asked Ferranti to come play guitar at his show that weekend. Five years later, Ferranti is still an integral member of Young’s band but also performs as a solo act in direct support on the sold-out world tour. Between headlining gigs and opening on Young’s tour, Ferranti is introducing a new vibe of Country music combining sultry lyrics, clever hooks, and personal storytelling.

Matt Giraud is a singer/songwriter from Kalamazoo, Michigan who achieved national recognition and acclaim for his performances on the hit Fox TV show, American Idol. As a favorite of the judges, he was the first ever recipient of the judges’ save, Matt went on to finish 5th on Season 8 of American Idol (2008-2009). Since then, Matt has appeared on various media outlets and talk shows (i.e. The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Live with Regis & Kelly). He continues to tour all over the world and most recently has been playing with some of the biggest symphonies in the US. He has performed on stages such as The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, The Phoenix Symphony Hall in Phoenix and for a crowd of over 9000 for the Taste of Kalamazoo in Michigan. Matt has also had major successes on iTunes by working with seasoned songwriters and artists. He recorded a cover of the song "You Don't Know Me" with Anna Wilson, which can be found on her album titled Countrypolitan Duets. The song went on to be #1 on the iTunes Jazz chart in 2010. He also recorded the song “Thank You” with Jim Brickman in 2010, which reached #16 on the Hot AC charts. Matt continues to perform and write new music and has recently moved to Nashville, TN to further pursue that aspect of his career. He plans to release a new full-length album in 2014 and just released an EP called "Live at River City" in December of 2013.
