On the day Bandi got together with Duke and Massey to write what became his breakout hit and debut single, “Man Enough Now,” they were fresh off the success of Kelsea Ballerini’s “The First Time” tour. Bandi revisited a memory of a girl he dated in college and offered the idea of “I’m Man Enough for a Relationship Now.” “I was thinking if we started dating today,” he says, “would I have made the same mistakes that I made as a 21-year- old, dumb college kid? I feel like I’ve grown up a lot since then. I feel like everyone has had a relationship where they didn’t see what they had when they had it.

Keeping his relentless touring schedule, Bandi released “Man Enough Now” independently on Spotify in 2017 so that his crowds could have something original to enjoy between concerts. The song received an immediate reaction and accumulated just over 5,000 streams in its first day. By the end of the week, they had 25,000 organic streams.

Music Row caught on to the viral success of Bandi’s runaway hit when the song started receiving 1,000,000 weekly streams. He signed a deal with RECORDS Nashville, a joint venture label between Barry Weiss and Sony Music Entertainment, and “Man Enough Now” became his debut single at country radio and serves as a preview of the true to life storytelling Bandi has to offer. “I want to write stories that I truly know,” he says. “Growing up in St. Louis, we didn’t ride around on tractors or hit a dirt road every Friday night, but it was something that I experienced later on in life. One thing I know very well is how to make mistakes in relationships,” Bandi adds with a grin.

On May 29, 2020 he released his self-titled debut EP. The seven song collection, four of which are co-written by Bandi, includes his single, “Would Have Loved Her,” written with Zack Kale.

The cinematic music video, directed by Dustin Haney and filmed along the breathtaking Caney Fork River in Tennessee, paints a sorrowing self-portrait with Bandi’s stark and isolated performance on a baby grand piano as the focal point.

The track hit country radio and garnered more than 10 million streams and counting, along with the early attention of fans, including The Bachelorette’s Hannah Brown, who are making it the soundtrack to their own musical tributes.

One of the most high-energy performers in Nashville, Skyelor Anderson is rising the ranks after releasing his debut EP, Bonfire, in October 2020 featuring the single If the World Ran Out of Whiskey. The Southaven, MS native grew up lending his ear to musical legends David Ruffin, Bobby Womack and the great Smokey Robinson. Once introduced to country music, though, his focus shifted to icons Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, and one of his biggest influences, Darius Rucker. After auditioning for The X-Factor at age 16, he knew music would play a pivotal role in his life. The year 2018 became a turning point in his career, with Skyelor receiving awards for Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year at the second annual Tennessee Music Awards.
