Growing up a fan of Michael Jackson, Keiynan was drastically impacted by the King of Pop's ability to connect to people from all over the world with not just his vocal capability, but also learned how potent his message was in his lyrics.  Check out the tribute video he did for MJ's bday last year HERE  Being a man of multiple talents, Keiynan is constantly balancing his time between the studio - singing and dancing and his major role on CW Networks's hit show "The Flash".  We caught up with the Australian entertainer as he was back home in Los Angeles for a few days around the release of his new song with Kasbo "Lay It On Me"

CAITLIN EADIE

The Nashville based songwriter found herself working on her own music after being told over and over again that the songs she was demo-ing and writing for other people were TOO GOOD.  Industry folks would say that they couldn't hear any other vocalist on the record which led to Caitlin exploring the path of becoming an artist!  Her album, Balancing Act is out everywhere now and she was in town to chat with me about the project, share some music and sing a few songs in studio.
