TLR ARTIST OF THE MONTH:
For 21-year-old emerging artist-songwriter Alana Springsteen, it’s always been about storytelling. Named “one of Nashville's most buzzworthy emerging artists” by E! News, she’s drawn praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, who stated that “She writes with beyond-her-years poise.” PEOPLE deemed PART ONE “a magical mixture of deep thoughts on love and heartbreak, all delivered by a voice that seems to represent the future of country music.” Partly on the strength of new songs from PART TWO like “Trust Issues,” “New Number,” and “Me Myself and Why,” Pandora's 2021 Country Artist to Watch has independently reached nearly 55 MILLION career streams and amassed over 3K playlist adds. Picking up the guitar at seven and writing her first song by age nine, the Virginia Beach native relocated to Nashville at 14 and landed a publishing deal almost immediately. On the fast-track to stardom, she’s set to blaze her own trail and has already been spotted on tours with Mitchell Tenpenny and LANY. Signed to Eighteen Company for management, represented by UTA, Springsteen is also Ryan Seacrest Foundation’s newest Celebrity Ambassador.
