Jenna Rose: Shining through

It doesn't take much convincing that Jenna Rose has the potential to be a great pop star.

Not only does she have an incredible voice and star quality but she is amazing to watch live.

Jenna has been performing and has been making videos since she was 10. From My Jeans & Omg to Walk On By & Forget You  
15 year old, Jenna has changed a lot as she’s made her way to teen superstardom.  

Her sound has changed throughout the last five years, and she is working hard to make sure everyone knows it.

 With her more grown up sound, the songs she sings are really diverse, many of them catchy. Her voice has gotten stronger and her lyrics more mature.

Her current songs reveal what it’s like to be a teenager in 2014.

Check out Jenna's debut LP here

What I like best about Jenna is her ability to sing. As she’s matured, her voice has become really powerful with intense focus and range.

Jenna has done a tremendous job of choosing songs that suit her voice and style as it has evolved. Her most recent song “Forget you” is a perfect example.

Using her wholesome good looks and quirky charm, she built up a massive following.  Her growth has earned her thousands of you tube fans and a spot in this summer’s

Carrie Lane: Beautiful Inside and Out

I recently had the privilege of meeting the beautiful and musically talented Carrie Lane.

It quickly impressed me that somebody so young seems so clear about who she is and how she wants to represent herself.
Only in her twenties, Carrie exudes passion and enthusiasm with an incredible display of talent.
Her passion:  Carrie says, “I've always been inspired to be a role model who projects not just beauty, but also strength.” She became an advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation when she learned at eight years old she had the disease.
Her enthusiasm: Carrie never saw her diabetes diagnosis as a struggle, but rather a source of strength and motivating factor to help others through her music. “If just one person likes my music and it helps them find clarity in some aspect of their life, I am satisfied.”
Her talent: Her music has a way of touching people because the things she writes about come from real feelings and circumstances. “Nobody views the world through the same lens that you do and therefore you will always have a unique story to tell.”  She writes her own songs based on how she sees the world and sings with a voice that is sweet and smooth, like silk.
While she is already on her way of becoming a household name, right now Carrie feels humbly thankful that her music has been received so well. Her new single Found You has debuted recently with fabulous reviews.



Carrie Lane’s talent earned her the privilege of opening up for Deleasa on their tour this summer and with The Reality Dance Jam.



Star Dog is honored that she will be performing at our Social Media Stars on Stage event to benefit the homeless on Oct 19

My favorite thing about Carrie, aside from her beautiful singing talent, is that she has set an example as an artist who chooses to give.
