McCleary’s own Brittany Kingery just picked up a number of Trop Rock Music Award nominations in the categories of Best Vocalist, Best Album and Best Song for “Tequila Talking”. Here, she’s recording at Exit 104 Media Studio in Olympia. Expect a new album from this local artist in the summer of 2016. Trop Rock is a genre of music combining Rock ‘n’ Roll, Country and Caribbean that extols a laid-back way of life. The 8th Annual Trop Rock Music Award winners will be announced at the Nov. 5 ceremony in Key West, Fla.
