AGENCY ANNOUNCEMENTS & NEWS:

  • MPA / Monterey Peninsula Artists – Nashville: James Yelich james@mpanashville.com

    Monterey Peninsula Artists is proud to announce the signing of Curb Records singer-songwriter Amy Dalley. Dalley has stormed on the charts with 54 ads the first week and is currently performing on Toby Keith’s Unleashed Tour. "When I first heard her music I was taken back with how fresh it sounded and how different the lyrics were. Many of the songs are real life experiences Amy has gone through and the message she conveys through song and music, are powerful. She is saying what women are thinking and in a different way. She is very special and we are thrilled to represent her, says James Yelich of Monterey Peninsula Artists." Yelich and Curt Motley will share agent responsibilities.
