Young M.A, Raised in Brooklyn, learned a lot in her formative years. The streets called her early, though losing her brother to violence forced M.A into a hard pivot that would change her life forever. After checking the temperature for her music through a handful of rough loosie cuts, she finally dropped off “OOOUUU” and it wasn’t long before she became a household name—landing coverage everywhere from Vogue to New York Times, as well as global ad campaigns with Adidas, Metro PCS, Google Pixel 2 and Beats By Dre. Read more and submit Q&A questions for Young M.A here. 

Melissa Villaseñor broke barriers by becoming the first-ever Latina cast member of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. A comedic impressions expert, she got her start as a semifinalist on “America’s Got Talent.” Melissa has voiced characters for TOY STORY 4 and WRECK IT RALPH 2. Melissa has appeared in scripted television shows such as Awkwafina is Nora From Queens, Barry, and Crashing. Read more and submit Q&A questions for Melissa Villasenor here. 

Maddie & Tae, arriving at the height of bro-country's peak in the mid-2010s, skewered that genre's down-home swagger with "Girl in a Country Song," a sharp satire of all the sexist clichés littering the airwaves in 2014. "Girl in a Country Song" became a hit in its own right, reaching number one on Billboard's Country Airplay charts by the end of 2014, making the duo of Maddie Marlow and Taylor Dye genuine country stars. "Start Here", Maddie & Tae's 2015 debut, kept the pair on the charts, thanks in part to "Fly," a bittersweet ballad that played to the duo's strengths as harmonizers and canny country-pop synthesizers. The two hits made a lasting impression that sustained Maddie & Tae through some label trouble in the ensuing years, a period that ended with a pair of EPs in 2019 that were subsequently compiled as their 2020 LP "The Way It Feels."
