Nashville’s Own is an in-the-round format show in the Lounge at City Winery, featuring Nashville based artists swapping songs and stories.
Born and raised just outside of Toronto, Ontario in a city called Mississauga (Miss-ah-saw-ga), Michelle Pereira (Purr-Era) received her Bachelor's degree in music, majoring in vocal jazz in April of 2015. A few months later, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee to attend Blackbird Studios (Martina McBride, John McBride) 6-month audio engineering program to learn the ways of what it feels like to be behind the glass. Shortly after, Michelle Pereira became sponsored by the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) for a performance work visa. Fast forward a year later, Michelle was selected as one of the finalists to compete in Ole's Majorly Indie 'On The Spot' contest for a chance at receiving a $40,000 artist development deal with them. She has played various iconic venues around Nashville including The Bluebird Cafe, The Listening Room, 3rd and Lindsley and The City Winery. Michelle has even shared bills and stages with Gwen Sebastian (country star, Miranda Lambert's backup singer and season 2 "The Voice" contestant), and Gary Nicholson (singer/songwriter for Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, and Ringo Starr). Michelle is very happy to announce that her new EP "Piece of My Mind" is now available on all streaming platforms!
Songwriter by day, artist by night, Michelle's dream is to wake up every day and create and inspire people with her music just as her favorite songwriters and artists have done so for her.

Mason Lee is from the small West Texas town of Seminole. After learning piano at a young age and teaching himself how to play the guitar, Mason started writing songs. He moved to Nashville in the summer of 2013, but after releasing an EP in 2016, fell away from music. Thinking maybe music wasn't for him after all, he considered other career paths and passions. After 2 and a half years of soul searching, Mason came to realize the importance of music and storytelling in his life, and has since refocused his efforts. He's been silently working on new stories to tell in his time away, and is so excited to get to share them.
Raised in sweet home Alabama, Regan Stewart grew up dancing and singing along to country music. She began writing songs at the age of 8 and moved to Nashville in 2014 to pursue a career in music.
She has quickly made her name in Nashville after joining the female-driven songwriter’s showcase called Song Suffragettes, which has led to her being featured in Rolling Stone, Taste of Country, CMT, and many others.
Stewart has spent most of this year writing songs and working on new music that highlights her country roots with many of the influences she grew up on. Her first single, “Stereotypical Girls,” was released in July 2018, followed by her second single, “Hold Me Like That”, recently released on November 16th. She was also one of the contestants on the first season of USA Network’s, Real Country
