ZEEK 'THE EXPERIENCE'
With a voice you won't forget, Zeek, also known as "The Experience," dramatically draws listeners in with his truly one-of-a-kind, soul-stirring voice. He melodically weaves tales of life and love over lush arrangements and classic lyrical depth. As a vocalist, arranger and songwriter, Zeek infuses the best elements of Pop, Soul, Jazz, and Gospel music into a mélange that tugs your heart with honesty and prowess. At just 21, Zeek has written and referenced songs for major label artsts and roused audiences with performances throughout the country, including opening for major acts like Dru Hill.
Singer, songwriter and guitarist Angela Everwood is a rising star in the country music scene. Her album I'll Be Thinking Of You was recorded with some of the best talent in Nashville, including chart-topping producer Tom Paden (George Strait, Faith Hill) and Academy of Country Music Award winner Judy Rodman. Angela recently debuted music from the project at Suquehanna Bank Center, where she performed for the 92.5 XTU Anniversary Show, one of the largest country music festivals in the nation, alongside multi-platinum acts like Miranda Lambert.
Dynamic R&B/pop/soul artist taragirl has been wowing audiences with her incredible voice and energetic stage performance for years. With two indie albums (The 26th Power and The City: Soul Suite) under her belt, she has been dubbed the "continuation of the Philly soul sound" (GO Magazine). She’s had the privilege of opening for artists like Jill Scott, Amy Winehouse and Chrisette Michele. With the help of her sensational live band, she has played to many a sold-out crowd. She’s been named one of ‘10 Artists to Watch’ by Philadelphia Citypaper and featured on Billboard.com and The Daily News.
Modern Colour plays with the raw, exciting energy of legendary three-piece bands like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Their sound can be described as "Rockin' Blues," a quality style of music appeasing fans that run the full spectrum of musical tastes. Formed in Philadelphia, Modern Colour have played a number of the area's most legendary venues, alreadying scoring major industry buzz.
A classically trained pianist and accomplished musician, Lydia René’s sound is best described as smooth out-of-the box soul. Puckered with sonic surprises, it is infused with jazz riffs and alternative stylings that help take the listener to a higher musical plateau than that of the norm. In addition to performing at renowned venues nationwide, her accolades include "Bounce Worthy" ratings on SoulBounce.com as well as 6ABC's "Tuned In" Viewers Choice Award.
Philadelphia native NeJcion has performed on platforms like BET, American Idol and Sunday Best. His latest project "My Turn" was recently released by Twenty Two Recordings/Capitol Records. He began singing professionally at a young age, as part of boy group T.Y.M. (Talented Young Men). With a tour set for 2013, the sky is the limit for this heartthrob.
