You just know true talent when you hear it and Madison Gold has it in abundance.

The Redondo Beach, CA native visited our SoKnox Studios yesterday (5/13) and laid down two brand new tracks for a yet-to-be-determined new release. Her upcoming self-titled debut album is due to drop on June 28.

With her angelic voice (no need for Auto-tune here!), carefree spirit, and undeniable beauty, Madison is in possession of that elusive “it factor” so sought after in the music industry. We are thrilled to play even just a tiny part in the young career of this up-and-coming star.

We here at Karaoke Cloud wish you the greatest success, Madison! We have no doubt that you have what it takes to take the music world by storm!

You can follow Madison on her Facebook page to keep abreast of all her appearances, performances, and new releases.

Tomi Robb conquers at Knox Wild Wing Voice Off

WW Voice Off 2014 Tomi PrepTomi Robb performs “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” at Knoxville’s Wild Wings Café during the Voice Off competition on Sunday, May 4, 2014. Robb would go on to win first place in the singing contest.

Twelve outstanding singers assembled for the final round of Knoxville Wild Wings Café‘s Voice Off competition on Sunday, May 4, 2014, but only one could emerge victorious. By the narrowest of margins, R&B sensation Tomi Robb took home the honors, the $1,000 cash prize, and a recording session at SoKnox Studios sponsored by DigiTrax Entertainment worth $3,500.

It was not a walk in the park for Robb, who was pushed to her limits by the field of eleven other competitors, each of whom brought both their natural talent and their “A-game” to the packed house.

Joining Robb in the Top Five were first runner-up Emily Struble and second runner-up Renee Maggart, along with Dylan Snowden and Cameron Dickerson.

Judges and coaches for the competition, which began in February, included Larry Blair, Linda Meyers, Mike Snodgrass and Sarah Goodpaster. The event was hosted by Master of Ceremonies Justin Marsh and directed under the watchful eye of Tara Thomas, with the crucial sound engineering duties masterfully executed by Mike Sosville.

Those in attendance were also treated to an impromptu acoustic set by local rock band “Sensible Madness.” The talented quintet made use of the instruments on display and thrilled party-goers with unplugged renditions of several of their original songs sending energy and positive vibes through the roof!

The staff and technicians at SoKnox Studios pride themselves on their ability to provide pretty much anything one might need with regards to music and animation for television, film, radio, games, apps, and more. They are also avid supporters of local artists/musicians and are working hand-in-hand with the local business community to revitalize and reinvent the South Knoxville area.
