However, that’s not to say OgaSilachi is a carbon copy of the artist. He has his own unique style, with layered and textured melodies, which straddle sensual R&B and Afropop. One thing that ties his music together is the soul in his voice, and his consistently effective song-writing skills.

Collegehumor.com’s original columnist
From New York City, currently lives in Los Angeles.
Author, columnist, and comedian Steve Hofstetter is often called the hardest working man in show-business. With all due respect to the late James Brown.
Hofstetter’s national TV debut came on ESPN’s Quite Frankly, where Stephen A. Smith yelled at him for three minutes. Hofstetter has also appeared on CBS’ “Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson”, Showtime’s “White Boyz in the Hood”, VH1’s “Countdown”, Sundance’s “On the Road in America”, and ABC’s “Barbara Walter’s Special”, where he thankfully did not cry. He is the host and executive producer of “Laughs” on Fox networks, where he only cries occasionally.
One of the top booked acts on the college circuit, the original writer for collegehumor.com has also released six albums. Hofstetter has written humor columns for the New York Times, SportsIllustrated.com, and NHL.com, where he publicly admitted to being a Ranger fan.
After hosting Four Quotas on Sirius Satellite Radio for two seasons, Hofstetter moved to broadcast radio, and his Sports Minute (Or So) was syndicated on over 170 stations and in over 30 newspapers. Hofstetter’s second live comedy album (“Cure For the Cable Guy”) reached #20 on Billboard’s comedy charts. His third album (“Dark Side of the Room”) was the first ever pay-what-you-want” comedy album, since people were going to steal it anyway. His fourth album consisted of an hour of 100% ad-libbed material, which is, frankly, nuts. And his fifth album hit #1 on iTunes’ comedy charts, which is also a bit nuts.
Hofstetter’s brutal tour schedule consists of over 100 colleges and dozens of clubs every year, and is fueled by an immense online popularity, tons of press, and a Prius with great gas mileage. He reached 200,000 friends on Facebook and 400,000 more on MySpace, and high shelves in grocery stores.
While Hofstetter’s live shows are routinely sold out, he is best known for his writing, first published at age 15, mainly to impress girls. At 18, he co-founded “Sports Jerk of the Week”, an irreverent website featured by press like USA Today’s Baseball Weekly, Sports Illustrated and CNN. And at 20, Hofstetter took a year off of school to head up web content for the New York Yankees. The Yankees won the World Series that year, which would have been wonderful if they hadn’t beaten Hofstetter’s Mets. Yes, he’s also a Mets fan. Poor kid.
While an undergraduate at Columbia University, Hofstetter was a well-read columnist for the Columbia Daily Spectator and a voice of the Lions. After a summer writing for Maxim, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated for Kids, Hofstetter syndicated his column in several newspapers.
Without his glasses, Hofstetter also looks a great deal like Michael Rappaport.
Bio Thomas Csorba is a singer/songwriter from Houston, TX who grew up listening to artists like Townes Van Zandt, Buddy Holly, and Woodie Guthrie. Soon after immersing himself in these artists’ work, he felt compelled to start making music of his own. He released his debut EP, “Kentucky”, in the spring of 2014. With this release, he secures his place among the storied voices of folk and Americana music. Melancholy and nostalgic, this songs are written for old souls. Csorba’s songs — rustic, honest, and as mournful as they are sweet — recall the best of the artists he admired as a kid. “Kentucky”, in that great tradition, is the offering of a man both weary and hopeful, a traveller on a long journey home. With the release of his sophomore album “Hard Truths and Noble Lies” the following year, Csorba continues to show his skills both lyrically and vocally. HIs discography shows his true outlook on the world around him and give the listener a different perspective on life: one from the eyes of a young man who is pursuing a dream.
After losing $400 to a con artist producer at the age of sixteen, Patric Johnston realized to make it in music industry he would have to do it on his own. Since moving to Houston in 2013 Patric has been active in the local songwriting scene and touring through the state.
Bio Hill Country Revival is a Southern Rock/Red Dirt Country act featuring musicians from Montana, Georgia and Texas. Touring the central Texas circuit, you can get a chance to see HCR if in the North Austin to downtown San Antonio areas.
The Corey Hunt Band hails from Asheboro, North Carolina, but more and more their music is taking them across the country on tour and into the ears of listeners around the world. They’ve found especially fertile ground for their sound – original country music shot through with acoustic folk and rock & roll attitude – in and around the state of Texas, where their approach fits in squarely with the tradition of regional favorites like Reckless Kelly, Jack Ingram, and The Randy Rogers Band. Along with right-hand-man bandmate Eric Wise, Hunt has scored success on the iTunes Country Album Chart, mingling with mainstream stars and legends in the Top 100 (rising as high as #71) upon the release of their new album The Tower. “People ask when we’re gonna make it/well the truth is we already have,” the title song insists; for starters, the lead-off single “Hannah Belle” cracked the Top 50 on the Texas Regional Radio Report chart. Hunt’s songwriting ranges from sincere romanticism to outlaw rebellion, and their do-it-yourself approach to booking, recording, and gigging has given them the freedom to explore and expand their music as they grow. With room to grow and momentum on their side, their crowd-pleasing and relatable take on modern roots music is poised for bigger and better things every time they hit the stage or the studio.

Each member has shared the stage with Nashville’s most successful artists.
His partner and Business Manager also happens to be his longtime friend and Guitarist: Kenny Scarborough. When the two first discussed the idea of forming the band some time back ,…
Keith explained that he wanted to create something “special” with the band.
He wasn’t interested in simply a standard “run-of-the-mill” country backing band. Instead, Keith wanted to feature a TOP-TALENT ALL PRO backing band comprised of some of the most sought after players on the circuit.
