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 Atlantic, Elektra, Interscope, Decca and Sony (UK).

Since a young age, MAYLYN always preferred to write her own music rather than practice the sheet music her piano teacher would assign. Throughout her childhood, high school and college career, MAYLYN refined her writing style and vocals to land on her smoky, alternative pop sound. A few months after graduating Auburn University, MAYLYN signed with Purplebeat in Nashville, Tennessee and is quickly making her way in the EDM world.  MAYLYN is an artist and topliner.
