Living Legend – Willie Nelson

Another Platinum Artist to join the Conquer Platform, legendary singer-songwriter Willie Nelson is now available here at getconquer.com!

Willie is the one behind some of the biggest country hits out there, including “Crazy” and “On the Road Again”. Willie started his career as a songwriter, but rose to the forefront of the stage in the 1960’s when he helped contribute to the “Outlaw Country” sub-genre, which was basically a war on Nashville conservatism.

Willie has lived a long, award winning career, becoming one of the most influential singer songwriters of all time. He has written countless popular country songs, which have been covered by artists all across the board, for half a century. Now at the age of 84, Willie Nelson continues to record, perform, and write new songs; as well as supporting various charities and political causes.

My doctor tells me I should start slowing it down – but there are more old drunks than there are old doctors so let’s all have another round.

The Young Sheriff – Faron Young

Happy to announce country legend, Faron Young, as the latest Platinum Artist now available at getconquer.com!

A huge player in the world of Nashville country music, Honky Tonk singer Faron Young was not an idle man by any means. A musician, a businessman, an actor, and a soldier; he took his love for music and payed it back ten fold.

Young really started seeing the limelight when he joined as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, was signed by Capitol Records, and went on to join the army as a member of the Entertainments Unit, boosting morale as he sang to the troops during the Korean War. It wasn’t long before Young started coming out with hit after hit, maintaining his streak clear into the 1970’s;  his first number one single being “Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young”.

Young also began acting in many western themed films, his most notable role being in “Hidden Gun” where he obtained the lasting nickname “The Young Sheriff”.

Throughout his life, Faron invested a great deal in the city of Nashville. Founding Music City News, running a booking agency, funding book and music publishers, real estate, race tracks; but despite all of his business ventures Faron continued to perform the music that he loved.

“The Bad Guy with the Big Heart” – Waylon Jennings

Known as a sort of musical rebel, Waylon Jennings is credited with popularizing the gritty, rock-influenced sound of outlaw country music. At every turn he challenged the status quo of country music, turning down and losing record labels due to his unwillingness to conform. This and his party heavy lifestyle led him to be labeled as an “outlaw” in the world of country. Now this outlaw’s music is here to stay, as an official Platinum Artist here on getconquer.com!

Jennings’ Outlaw style takes on a tough, bass heavy sound; breaking away from the tighter production of traditional country music for something more raw and edgy, such as his first number one hit “This Time”.

Jennings brought something all his own to the table, and we can definitely respect that steadfast desire to make music his way, regardless of what was expected or popular at the time. People likened him to a villain, but that black hat represents a hero for the rebellious, and the innovative.

Don’t ever try and be like anybody else and don’t be afraid to take risks.

SHOW OFF YOUR LOVE OF MUSIC

Strung

With creativity time and love anything is possible. That is exactly what Jenny and Tim were thinking when they created their first-ever Strung bracelet. The duo are part of a band called Blameshift. They have been around the music industry for over 10 years, traveling half a million miles and playing over 2,000 shows. They know just about everything there is to know about the music industry.

In mid-July 2014 in Clifton New Jersey as Jenny watched Tim change his guitar strings her eyes glanced over to see the strings wrapped in a circular fashion. Her mind wandered to the idea of re-purposing these old guitar strings that she had seen for years laying around the bus. With some creativity time and a whole lot of love they formed the first strung bracelet. The fans went crazy they sold out the first night. Jenny was under extreme pressure to have enough bracelets ready for the next show the following night. They worked through the night. Fans from all around the country we’re soon telling them that the bracelets brought them good luck it made them feel happy. Jenny and Tim soon realized that they had a secondary stream of income that was helping propel their musical dreams.

SONGBIRD – RACHEL MENCONI

Cabaret Artist: Rachel Menconi

Songbird is an accurate comparison to the ever talented Rachel Menconi. Rachel is a master vocalist with over 20 years of vocal training and experience; as well as acting, songwriting, directing, and script-writing. A passion, and talent for the arts in every facet.

As a performer, Rachel has 20+ years of experience including originating the role of “Antigone” in “Oedipus: The Musical” (NYC). Other credits include commercials, films, TV shows (One Tree Hill, AMC, Food Network), music videos, and numerous stage credits (Regional, Off-Off Broadway, Off- Broadway, NYC Theatre). Rachel is also a songwriter (15+ years), director, scriptwriter, and an international recording artist (8+ years).

Rachel’s voice is versatile and refined with years of classical training. A strong vocal powerhouse capable of intricate operatic arias, and able to loosen it up just as easily for a more fun and flirty pop sound.

CRIS VALKYRIA “OUT OF THIS WORLD”

Alternative Artist-Cris Valkyria

Sometimes an artist creates a sounds that is so remarkably unique that you just can’t possibly tie it down to one genera. Cris Valkyria – is just that! She is simply and refreshingly un-categorizable.

Born and raised in Norway, graduating with a degree in Psychology, traveling the world, and finally settling down in Philly; Cris now shows off her musical talents as lead singer of the band “Valkyrians“. Though the bands foundation is in the Alt-Rock genre, Cris takes it for a spiral with her sweet sound, and folky tone. Staying true to her Scandinavian roots, Cris gives an almost elven, otherworldly vibe with her voice. Injecting a fantasy style undertone into otherwise rock driven music.

Valkyrians is a Philly-based band that has established a reputation of a band hard to categorize, but with a memorable sound.

So aside from having a really cool name, Cris is an artist who pushes genre boundaries. The unique sound of her music gives off an ethereal sort of impression, and unique genre-crossing flare. Her Nordic, old word vocals, mixed with the alt-rock sound of the Valkyrians shows something truly unique.
