PURPLEBEAT writers

As a Grammy award winning songwriter Angelo’s early success placed him amongst the A-list writers of Nashville. The next, considerably more intense run of success put the unassuming Angelo at the heart of an American rock & roll revival as producer and writing partner with back-to-basics Tennessee band Kings of Leon. Originally pitched as a country duo between brothers Caleb and Nathan Followill, their stylistic transition to full band with their other brother Jared and cousin Matthew was nurtured by Angelo. All told, Kings of Leon retained Angelo as their producer for six total albums, from the boogie and Southern rock of early releases Youth and Young Manhood and Aha Shake Heartbreak that conquered Europe to 2013's Mechanical Bull. In between, they experienced a massive commercial breakthrough with Only by the Night that briefly made them the biggest band on the planet and earned Angelo a Record of the Year Grammy for the single "Use Somebody." Angelo is currently working on projects for Republic Records, Hollywood Records, Elektra, Atlantic, Warner Records and Sony (UK).

From Hattiesburg, Mississippi, MAYLYN stands alone with a refined writing style that perfectly compliments her smoky, alternative pop sounding vocals. Starting May 2019, MAYLYN has been releasing some of her favorite originals she wrote while living between Nashville and Los Angeles.
