In addition to writing and performing, Victoria co-produced Lady Antebellum’s debut album, for which she won a 2009 CMA Award. In 2019 Victoria became the host of her own series “Songwriters Under the Covers with Victoria Shaw” on The All Arts Channel. She is currently working on season three. Seasons one and two are available to view on the All Arts TV app.
Jim Brickman is the best-selling solo pianist of our time, earning 21 #1 albums, 32 Top 20 radio hits, and two Grammy nominations. His first album was 1995’s No Words, and he’s gone on to sell eight million albums worldwide. His star-studded vocal collaborations have crossed genres to feature luminaries like Martina McBride, Michael Bolton, Donny Osmond, Kenny Rogers, Olivia Newton-John, Johnny Mathis, and Kenny Loggins, among many others. He’s written three best-selling books, starred in four TV concert specials, and is in the 22nd season of hosting the popular syndicated radio program “The Jim Brickman Show.”
Peter Cincotti was called “one of the most promising singer-pianists of the next generation by The New York Times. A born and bred New Yorker, Cincotti’s debut album reached #1 on the Billboard jazz charts, making the eighteen-year-old musician the youngest artist ever to do so. Peter’s albums have been produced by legends such as Phil Ramone and sixteen-time Grammy winner David Foster, blending genres from pop to jazz, and leading him to perform in some of the world’s most prestigious venues. His highly-anticipated new album Killer on the Keys includes autobiographical originals as well as cover songs honoring some of the most influential piano men and woman of all time, from Scott Joplin to Lady Gaga.
