Charisma is happy to announce the addition of Vinyl Soup to our agency!

Vinyl Soup is the premiere psychedelic rock band from Nashville, TN. Their sound falls somewhere between 70’s British, progressive rock, folk rock, and the American jam band sound of the 90’s to the present day. Their ethos includes an eclectic blend of influences ranging from rock, blues, folk, and jazz, to Caribbean and world sounds. Unlike many of the musically disposable jam bands on the current scene, there is a strong emphasis on deeply empathetic and memorable compositions, with an occasional knowing wink to the listener, lest things get too serious. As Lexington, KY Newspaper North of Center points out in an article regarding a Vinyl Soup performance in October 2010: this is a songwriter’s Jam band. Fans of Vinyl Soup’s concert performances also cite the band's fearless extended improvisations and free-wheeling musicianship as unique strengths of their live shows.

We are excited to announce the addition of Michael ONeill to our roster!

Quietly working on material for nearly a decade, ONeill found himself happily remarried and content. In 1999, he released “Dream On” to critical acclaim, garnering nation-wide airplay. His current work, “From the Beginning” is an uncommon album that documents an artist in his prime, a man who knows himself, strengths and weaknesses alike. Part country crooner, part haggard storyteller, ONeill makes a noise that is refreshingly classic. Drawing on heroes like Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan for inspiration, “From the Beginning” plays like old-time rock and roll, deceptively simple yet focused on craft and execution.

We are thrilled to announce the addition of Hilary Scott to our roster!

Hilary Scott is an award-winning singer-songwriter who brings her unique brand of melodic and lyrically memorable indie/pop songs to audiences nationally and internationally. Jeff Dame of Northeast In-Tune has this to say about Hilary and her music: "Hilary has the potential to be as big as the likes of Alanis Morrisette, Tori Amos, or Sheryl Crow. Listen to her now and you can say, 'I've been in from the beginning.'
