Congrats to Angie and Ryan Davis!
We're thrilled to report that Angie (and her husband Ryan) have safely rolled through the first trimester and are expecting their second child sometime this November! We couldn't be happier for this awesome young family and will be in full support during the transition into a maternity leave this Fall. The anticipation and excitement of the growing Davis family has been coupled with an audition process to find the perfect fill-in...
The entire Uptown Drive family wants to thank all the applicants and welcome Detroit, Michigan's Alyssa Simmons to the team! Alyssa was in the front line of a powerhouse Detroit party band The Killer Flamingos and is a singer-songwriter with four original albums to her credit. She was nominated for two Detroit Music Awards in 2015 for ‘Best Rock Songwriter’ & ‘Best Rock Album’ for record ‘Now Or Never.’ Her latest release has also scored her the award for Best Pop/Rock Album at the Akademia Music Awards based in Los Angeles California.
