Southern Fellow Presents Girls Night out featuring Stephanie Ryann and Sarah Faith
Growing up on the Monongahela River in southwestern Pennsylvania, Victoria Rose’s love affair with country music began at an early age while cruising the waters on her family boat. Blending traditional and contemporary country music, she garnered an appreciation for legendary icons such as Dolly Parton, Hank Williams Jr., along with Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town.
Her music career blossomed at the age of 12 when she was given the opportunity to perform at Pittsburgh’s Hard Rock Cafe followed by a National Anthem performance at the Monster Truck Jam (PPG Paints Arena). Since, she has received welcome to perform original sets at various music festivals such as: Bloomfest 2020 and Virtual Festival 2020, along with performing at events at Disney Four Seasons, and Disney Springs.
While Victoria is most certainly characterized by her songwriting ability, sassy lyrics and crisp twangy vocals, what lies beneath is the tenacity and determination that will put her on the path of success. She expertly balances young-hearted romanticism with sophistication to offer a relatable quality that country music fans alike, can latch onto. The now sixteen-year-old has released 4 singles since 2020 which have accumulated upwards near 100K streams on various streaming platforms.
Currently, Victoria Rose is in the studio working to release a series of new singles and an EP anticipated to roll-out in 2021.
From the mountains of Sparta, North Carolina to the stages of Nashville, Tennessee, singer-songwriter Reed Foley is making a name for himself in the world of country music. His southern accent and raw vocals demonstrate solid authenticity from the first note. Starting with neighborhood performances at the young age of 16, his talents have taken him from small town bars to some of NASCAR’s biggest stages. In March 2017, Reed released his first single, Who’s Turning You On and that same day opened for Tyler Farr and Jason Aldean at Runaway Country Music Festival. Following the release of his single he was soon after invited to open for William Michael Morgan. When not performing, the artist can be found on 16th Avenue writing with some of the industry’s best.
Stephanie Ryann is a woman who’s got something to say, whether you want to listen or not. Ryann’s latest release “Broken Heart”, features the struggle of trying to move on after having your heart broken and knowing that no matter how many pieces your heart breaks into, you have to put them back together to move on. Embracing country music’s forward progression, Ryann’s “storyteller” lyrics and unique vocal stylings showcase her influences from country, pop, rock and folk music. While COVID-19 shut down most of the music industry, Ryann took the opportunity to hone her songwriting skills and teach herself guitar, which lead to the creation of her COVID-inspired single, “Nights Like These”, and allowed her the ability to not only co-write, but write songs entirely on her own.
The 34 year old is no stranger to the music industry, spending most of her late teens and early 20’s auditioning for tv shows such as American Idol, Nashville Star, and The Voice to assist in jump starting her career. When that proved to be more of a dead end than an open road, Ryann looked to friends and fellow musicians Eliot Lewis (of the legendary pop duo Hall & Oates) and Kevin Totoian (of the award winning band Tangled Vine) to forge her own path into the music industry. In late 2018, Ryann released her debut, self-titled, EP and has been releasing singles ever since.
Due to the pandemic, Ryann has been regularly gigging her own shows via Instagram Live, as well as hosting live-streaming events for various media outlets including radio stations, music blogs and music venues since the beginning of April 2020. As stated by Patrick at Southern Fellow, “Stephanie Ryann doesn’t just flirt with country music like many these days; she goes straight for the soul of it.”
A Michigan-born Nashvillian, Sarah Faith is an artist-songwriter that builds her musical catalog and sound around her life’s experiences. As an Indie Alternative/Americana artist, Sarah has been strongly influenced by a diverse musical background including classic rock, alternative, and some country music. Her warm, soulful voice brings fans songs written about close-to-the-heart stories with a distinct kind of vulnerability and realness.
Having dealt with depression and anxiety most of her life, Sarah aims to relate to her audience through her struggles. “We all deal with curve balls and unexpected sh*t in life. None of us are dealt perfect hands. I’ve just found a way to not let it control me. That’s what drives me to create music the most.” Since her abusive alcoholic mother lost her life to addiction in 2017, her ambitions have been ever-evolving, but one thing remains constant: “I want to show people that no matter how dark your story is or how ridiculous and crazy your family is, you have the choice; you can turn your struggles into good things.”
Sarah released her debut single, Before You, in May 2020. She also released a Christmas single in December 2020 in Angels We Have Heard On High. Between the release of those two songs, Sarah began curating songs for a full-length album, which is expected in 2021.
