  • Ashley Wineland On The Chris Top Program

    Aug 20, 2014 | 50 min
    Music has always been my first love. It speaks to me louder than anything else, and I respond ten times louder. My name is Ashley Wineland, I’m 16 years old and live in Arizona. I’m a lover of all music, but my musical roots lie within country. The story-telling and feeling behind every country song is what draws me towards this genre. As a singer who writes all her own material, it’s always a blast coming up with new ways to tell my stories and even creating new ones. My journey that lead me to where I am today began a little over a year and a half ago. I was so blessed to have met my amazing producer Bryan Kuban. At that point in time I hadn’t started writing yet, but I knew I wanted to le...

    It's time for music to renew a relationship between the artist and the listener. Sure, those songs of summer are fun, but people want music that can touch their lives. The kind of music that makes you think, "Yah, this is totally what I'm dealing with" and you turn the volume up a little louder than it should be. Real music for real people. Melissa Mickelson grew up as an Air Force brat which brought her from California to Oklahoma to Texas and eventually Oregon. The experiences in these very different states has shaped Melissa's values and her musical interests. Growing up in a Spanish speaking household, Luis Miguel was the voice that made the whole family dance. With her father in Oklahom...

    Aug 19, 2014 | 49 min
    They say Justice is Blind, but when it comes to corruption in the judicial system, we can't turn a blind eye. We must not allow innocent people to get hurt while corrupt agents continue on with impunity. How can a free society's judicial system justly serve its people if self policing corrupt lawyers and judges infiltrate it? It only takes a few greedy and immoral agents to undermine a judicial system's integrity and deteriorate the citizens' faith in it. The over-site that governs lawyers in the U.S. is self policing and flawed and therefore must be addressed. We hope this movie will affect much needed regulatory changes and hold lawyers to a higher standard of accountability. This story is...

I am a songwriter first. It doesn't matter what I am doing throughout the day I am usually writing lyrics and storing them in the back of my mind.

That's all I can remember, but I was SURE Shania Twain would cut it. Of course, when she didn't, I was devestated. However, as I got older I kept pushing on and writing songs.

I can write about anything and no one can change it. They allow me to let go of things that are really bugging me. I play the piano and guitar. I’ve been singing since I could talk, but it wasn’t until I was 11 that I started to write songs. My inspiration for writing music was a result of a poetry project my English teacher assigned. I realized that poetry came naturally to me. Whenever I am frustrated, sad, or excited about school, friends, or boys, I let out my emotions into a song. Sometimes I write the lyrics first an...
