On Sunday, the fans came through and on Monday, Grace held up her end of the bargain and performed a pop cover at the audition. No doubt it was a risk, but Grace vowed to stay true to herself, and in the end it all worked out! Grace is the new Concertmaster at UPS! Congratulations Grace!

Wes Gonzalez will be a special guest performer at this year’s Battle In The Orchard! This event will take place at the Curran Apple Orchard Park in University Place as part of their Free Summer Concert Series on Thursday, June 30th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. This show is all-ages! Check it out!
Hello everyone. Got a couple of updates for you! Wes Gonzalez is very busy, finishing writing for his EP. Every now and then we have received a demo and we can’t wait to see what else he comes up with. Due to being so focused on writing, there will be no shows scheduled for Wes until further notice. We can’t say much about the material but we promise, the wait will be worth it! Brittany Glabe has also been working on writing and recording her EP. Aside from music, Brittany now has three other jobs and time to write, record, and play have been sparse but we are hoping to book some more dates this summer and release her EP by next winter. Until then, we will hopefully be able to sneak in some video updates and maybe even record a cover or two. Keep your eyes and ears open! As always, thank you for supporting Cadence Music Management and we hope you all have a wonderful Easter!
Introducing Brittany Glabe’s unofficial music video for her new song “Canon”. Be sure to watch this in HD and let us know what you think by “liking” this video on our Youtube page! Thank you!
As the first month of the New Year is coming to a close, we have to say, 2011 is awesome so far! Both Wes and Brittany are writing new material and they’re working on a secret collaboration/cover together. As an insider, I can tell you it’s something you definitely would not expect and it sounds amazing! We can’t wait for everyone to hear it. Aside from writing, both Wes and Brittany are gearing up for some local shows taking place in February. Please view our “Events” page for more information on those. Cadence Music Management was recently approached by an extremely well-known casting director, inquiring about whether or not our artists would be interested in auditioning for a television program about singing. We graciously declined the offer, as it was not the direction neither Wes nor Brittany were interested in going towards. However, we were extremely flattered by the opportunity and we continue to be amazed by the amount of interest Cadence is generating worldwide. Thank you for spreading the word, supporting Cadence Music Management, and supporting our artists. We hope 2011 will continue to be a great year for everyone!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! We are so thankful for all of your support… Wes would not have been able to hit 250,000+ views on Youtube last week without it! Brittany Glabe played an impromptu open mic at Java Fusion in Tacoma, WA and was received extremely well by the audience. We plan on doing a lot of shows with Java Fusion in the future! Please visit our Youtube channel(listed under the About Us > Links tab) to view part of her great performance. Kayla recently was asked to be part of a interview/photography project about young entrepreneurs/CEO’s for a student at Evergreen Community College. Last, but definitely not least, we received our first batch of business cards! We are very happy with how they turned out and can’t wait to pass them out and spread the word about Cadence Music Management even further!
Wow! What an amazing response! Thank you to everyone who supported the launch by viewing our website, sending us a lovely email, and/or “liking” us on Facebook! These past couple of weeks have been extremely busy but we are loving every second of working with such a great team. Wes Gonzalez is currently writing material for a new album while Brittany Glabe is recording her first EP today! We cannot wait to get out on the road and share our amazing artists with the world!
Welcome to our new website! Expect quite a few updates in the coming months. Thank you for visiting!
