Driven by rich vocals, electrified leads, and boot stomping rhythms, Lyn Avenue is a burning ember of iconic country music. Comprised of songwriters CC Witt and Patrick Ellington, their writing style is rooted in sharp lyricism and memorable melodies, organically blending elements of Americana, Folk and Classic Country. There is always a story to be told with Lyn Avenue and you can guarantee that you'll be wanting to sing along. Both born and raised in Savannah, GA, the duo often draws lyrical inspiration from their colorful, and sometimes quirky, southern background.
Their unique blend of styles has brought them much acclaim including being nominated 3 consecutive years for Best Country Band by both the GA Music Awards and the Georgia Country Awards. Lyn Avenue has received airplay on several regional radio stations including Z.102 FM; WTOC Mid Morning Live; WHHI-TV Bluffton – Talk of the Town; Q105.3; WRUU-Savannah, TEDx, WIXV 95.5 - Rock of Savannah and SCAD Radio, as well as added to regular playlists at Independent Music Promotions (IMP) reaching into over 14 countries. Such acclaim has facilitated Lyn Avenue opening for major artists such as Jerrod Neimann, Parmalee, Easton Corbin, Lonestar, Chris Janson, Adam Sanders, CMT’s Ashley Wineland, and others.
Lyn Avenue's latest release, "Never Been to Nashville - EP" features six songs, including their single "Kentucky Bourbon", a clever boot-stomping drinking anthem that according to A&R Factory, is an "authentically country song." With over 17,000 views on Social Media (and growing), the single is generating a buzz on the internet and beyond. Never Been to Nashville was recorded, mixed and mastered at Dollhouse Studios in Savannah, GA. Produced by Peter Mavrogeorgis and Lyn Avenue, the EP released February 9, 2018.

Music City SongStar Winner, NSAI Top-40 songwriter, and Georgia Country Awards Overall Artist of the Year, Matt Rogers, is no stranger to the stage. With over 200 performances a year playing venues across the southeast and opening for some of country music’s hottest names, including Cole Swindell, Lo Cash and Michael Ray, Matt has built a devout fan base with his electrifying stage presence.
When Rogers isn’t on the road, he is writing music with some of Nashville’s best songwriters. Music City SongStar awarded Matt 2nd place in a multi-genre, international competition for his song "Britches" in 2018. Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and CMT selected his song “I Was Raised” for a songwriting achievement award. It went on to be selected by NSAI as a Top 40 song and secured him a finalist spot for the Georgia Music Awards for Country Male Artist and Music Video of the Year. “Read My Mind” was selected as an official entry into the International Songwriters Competition.
The Georgia native creates a connection with his listeners through his emotionally gripping lyrics and unmistakable melodies. His talent has caught the attention of thousands of fans as well as country music legends like TG Sheppard, “[Matt’s] the real deal…the total package. [He’s] a great singer, a great picker and a great songwriter.” Rogers also received commendation from industry tastemaker, Robert K. Oermann. Oermann selected the title track of Matt’s EP, Richest Place On Earth, for Music Row’s DisCovery Award. Oermann praised the track saying, “Extremely well written and sung with fire and conviction. Play this.”
2018 is shaping up to be another groundbreaking year for Rogers. He started the New Year by debuting the lyric video for his second single, “Britches,” exclusively on the popular country music outlet, The Boot. The January release followed many career milestones in 2017, including becoming the first Brand Ambassador for Durango Boots. “Matt has a rich, unique and bold style to his music that authentically connects to his fans which is the type of artist that represents our brand perfectly,” says Erin DeLong, Durango Marketing Manager. Breedlove guitars and 64 Audio also sponsor Rogers. Matt released his EP, Richest Place On Earth, in May of 2017 ahead of his first appearance as an Emerging Artist at CMA Fest’s Fan Fair X where he spent four days meeting 80k+ fans from across the world and performing at some of Music City’s legendary venues such as the Bluebird Café and Wildhorse Saloon. Matt’s touring schedule is continuing to grow, spanning across the country. “I’m really excited to re-connect with my fans that have been supporting me for so long and to get the chance to connect with some new fans along the way,” says Matt. “I can’t wait to get on stage and share my new music I’ve worked so hard on with them.”
“If you don’t know the name Matt Rogers then you need to write it down. He’s going places,”- Hit Songwriter/Author/WSM 650 AM host, Devon O’Day
OPEN MIC AWARDS

Jordan Matthew Young Band
Friday, September 7, 2018, 8:30 PM to 11:45 PM
Jordan Matthew Young has shared the stage with the likes of ZZ Top, Shooter Jennings, Lukas Nelson, James Harman, Samantha Fish, Tinsley Ellis, John Németh, Indigenous, Kyle Gass Band, Shook Twins, Walter Parks, Eric McFadden, Jared James Nichols and is the proud winner of Album of the Year and Best Rock Band and was runner up for Band of the Year and Best Blues Band in the 2016 Best of Utah Music Awards
The back-to-basics blues rock sound of Jordan Matthew Young, formerly Candy's River House started out as little more than an idea while Roosevelt-born Young spent his early 20s learning to play—and live—the blues in Tennessee. Candy's River House became the band it is now when Young returned to Utah and enlisted drummer Joey Davis and bassist Nathan Simpson to round out a powerful trio. Another Night, produced by Mike Sasich, is a thrilling, soulful 9-track dose of bluesy moans, beefy riffs, tight, towering rhythms and Young's masterful songwriting. It's a loud, proud record that appeals to fans of blues-based classic rock like Free and early ZZ Top, and relatively newer bands like Gov't Mule, The Black Crowes and The Black Keys. And, since it adheres to the old unspoken 9-tracks-per-platter rule, it's easy to enjoy in one sitting, with headphones unplugged and the volume cranked.–RH, KB City Weekly
