New on The Show:
JetSet Getset
"the music is fantastic the lead singer has such a beautiful voice, one of my highlights of the evening"..I think that's so beautifully written, and I think the way it's sung is great, not over produced you can hear every word I think it's a very nice quality release” – Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Country/Pop
Location: Dearborn County, Indiana / Nashville, Tennessee
Jetset Getset (JSGS) is a dynamic country music group comprised of mostly teenagers.
Recognized by the Country Music Association among "Who New to Watch" in 2013, Jetset Getset has a style that Music Connection Magazine described as "sprightly country twang." The UK country DJ and former CMA International Broadcaster Award winner Brian Clough called Jetset Getset a "brilliant fresh slice of across the board country sounds."

The group consist of: Tori Little (vocals), Avery Eliason (vocals), Jason Owens (lead guitar), Justen Jette (rhythm guitar), Paul Kelley (bass guitar), Gillian Bowman (drums) and Terry Ranck (keyboards; the only adult who performs with Jetset Getset on a regular basis)
They began in 2011 when music teacher-turned-manager Kelli Jette decided to assemble a young group to perform primarily for fun at local fairs and festivals. At first, singers Tori Little and Avery Eliason sang to prerecorded Karaoke tracks, but as their popularity grew, the girls and their manager, Kelli Jette, decided to add a band and begin performing original songs.
Their newest radio release offers a message of hope to bullying victims and others who have been put down or picked on. “Stronger (Than You Seem),” from the album “Saturday Night” (Playback Records), is already being used by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center in Bloomington, Minnesota, as part of a bullying prevention program in schools.

Kalisa Ewing
Location: Nashville, United States
Label: Universal Music Publishing Group, KingSpirit Music 
Kalisa Ewing @KalisaEwing Songwriter, nerd, finger snapper, ninja kisser, Sagittarius, insomniac, caffeine junkie, doodler, a bird, a dog, clingy, crazy, happy, sad, good, bad. Sup?

Co-wrote “Where Did Your Love Go” with Rivers Rutherford recorded by Kellie Pickler on her Black River debut THE WOMAN I AM,  which reflects back on the first time of falling in love.

Kalisa grew up in the country just outside Nashville where, at age 11, she picked up a guitar and penned her first song. She credits her insatiable passion for music to her grandfather, who died of heart problems just after she was born. Kalisa’s grandfather, Owen McCarty, was a blind musician who moved to Nashville to fulfill his dreams as an artist in Music City.
Like her grandfather, Kalisa continued to search for a home in music. She took guitar lessons and began writing poetry to sharpen her songwriting skills.
Fast-forward through years of odd-end jobs and dead-end promises, Kalisa met industry veteran, Todd Wilkes, who recognized her unparalleled talent and opted to publish her independently. Under the helm of Wilkes and Kent Earls (Universal Music), Kalisa became the first co-venture of Wilkes’ company, KingSpirit Music, and signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group.
“One of my songs, ‘Redemption,’ is about everything that I've had to learn the hard way through the years. That’s the kind of real stories that I hope connect with people. >> "Redemption" (YouTube)
When asked about some of her biggest influences as tunesmiths, she cites Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, and  Patty Loveless as favorites, citing her 1994 Tony Arata gem “Here I Am” as a favorite “I’m still trying to write me a here I am…i haven’t done it yet!
The 25 year old Kalisa made her Grand Ole Opry debut on May 31st 2013
