About the Artists
Elijah Wise from Cosby, Tennessee has a very traditional country sound with an outlaw flare about him. Elijah gives credit to his greatest influences Keith Whitley, Tracy Lawrence, Travis Tritt, and George Jones, as they shaped the way he sounds today. In the early years of life, Elijah grew up singing with his father. It wasn’t until Elijah was right around 20 years old when he picked up the guitar and quickly fell in love with it. Elijah took guitar lessons from bluegrass legend Wyatt Rice at East Tennessee State University to add a whole new dynamic to his sound. After being put into a financial bind and leaving the university, he decided to start his journey as a professional musician. After just a few months Elijah began playing anywhere from 5-7 nights a week as a full time musician in some of the biggest venues in East Tennessee. He now lives in Nashville, and is chasing the dream of becoming a country star. Elijah released his first single back in September of 2020 called “She’s Movin’ On”. The song was written by Wyatt McCubbin and Carson Chamberlain and has had several radio plays in the local area. Elijah has some big things planned for the rest of the year. A couple things include on August 21st 2021 at the Cocke County fairgrounds in Newport, Tennessee, Elijah will be opening up for “The” Larry Sparks and will be back in the studio in November with Kenny Royster at Direct Image Studios in Nashville to finish up his EP. One of Elijah’s favorite venues to play at is Ole Red because there is always a great crowd and an incredibly helpful and dedicated staff to make the experience top notch for the artists and the audience. Elijah says, ” I just knew I wanted to play Ole Red because the crowd that it draws in is insane and I wanted to be a part of that kind of exposure and such a great team.” Fans can purchase Elijah’s music anywhere music is sold and can find his handles for social media at the links below.

Brandon was born in a mountain town in rural North Carolina. At the age of five he began a long journey of hereditary eye problems that over the course of the past thirty years has led to over twenty surgical procedures on each of his eyes. During this journey he developed a love for music and at age nine began playing guitar and singing in church. Throughout his teens and twenties he traveled playing and singing bluegrass and gospel, but his passion has always been country music and specifically paying homage to the artists of yesterday and keeping country music … COUNTRY. Custom made cowboy suits, boots, hats, and twanging guitars are all part of the tradition Brandon loves and strives to preserve. “Make no mistake, I’m country as dirt and cool as summer rain!”
