Malik the Freq is one of the shining stars of THE LIONS (members of Breakestra, Rhythm Roots All-Stars, Poetics and Macy Gray) and songwriter for THE BULLETS (w/Aggrolite Organist Roger Rivas), both true staples of the Los Angeles Reggae scene. But for years Malik has quietly been writing and performing genre exploring songs.
As both bands adopt the songs, their full versions can be heard in all their glory, but the songs themselves are so sweet and personal that to hear them from Malik solo is a bit of a revelation.
Hearing songs like “Bird on a Wire” or “Sun Drenched Witch” performed solo gives us all a chance to catch the bitter-sweet optimistically haunting vibe of the the Freq. When accompanied by a full band Malik’s detailed and nuanced songwriting and arrangement is on full display and that’s not even to mention his stellar voice! He’s what music has been missing!
Ana Saldaña is a Los Angeles Mexica native. She is a singer/songwriter, producer, and activist for immigrant rights and Mother Earth. Ana believes music is our soul’s revolution and hopes to keep her culture and roots alive through song. Ana's Mexican regional influences have inspired and shaped her sound today. She has affectionately coined Neo Soul Ranchera.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF COLLEEN
Colleen picked up playing the guitar at the age of 17, initially to impress a boy she met in the desert at an illegal music festival, uncovering a hidden talent for writing lyrics that wouldn’t go away.
She went to college in Russia (just for the adventure of it) becoming fluent in the language, only to ditch class and work at MTV Russia, join a band and tour regionally.
When her visa expired she moved back to her home state of California settling in Los Angeles. As a solo artist in LA, she has collaborated with some of the best musicians and producers on the scene, making a multi-genre catalogue consisting of folk, rock, reggae and pop electronica.
Colleen’s most recent project goes back to the basics with simple folk guitar accompanied by a ‘haunting’ voice that sings of personal heartache, hope and a desire for change in the world. Last year she launched a personal campaign #LyricalProtest to share her music that addresses social injustice and to feature other artists that are speaking out similarly.
She grew up in small towns throughout California moving every few years. When people would ask why they lived in weird places and moved so much she didn’t know how to answer. Now she does… they were hippies.
Illiana Carter -- a voice for Standing Rock: Iliana Carter was born in Los Angeles, California, USA. She is known for her work on Cry Now (2014), Walkout (2006) and Primo (2008).

Our Residant Live Painter: Michael Pukac weaving his provocative tapestry on the canvas
Painting is a very mercurial thing. It’s a relatively simple act that has maintained relevancy throughout time and across most, if not all, cultures. For me, painting is like a collision of concepts as much as it is a combination of skill and material. It is where the creatively abstract and intellectually complex concepts of translation, illusion, allusion, and transformation find a nexus. I crossbreed different genres, eras, and conventions of painting into phantasmagorical anti-epics. I see my work as a kind of cultural aesthetic gumbo poured into its own reality, which is dedicated to honor the creative process. As multifaceted as painting is, it can be reduced to two parts: the “what” and the “how”.
In conclusion the “what” and the “how” lead us to the “why”. As an artist, I use painting like a lens to view the world. I find analogous principles and far reaching connections from our world to the world of paint. I believe a painter should try to paint as nature creates. So much so, that I’ve divided my work into the four elements, earth, air, fire, and water. These categories are not established on subject but, on the over all feel of the painting. This includes the way the paint operates, the character of the brush strokes, the push and pull of space and how the subjects in the paintings are interacting in their environments. The more I explore, the more connections I find. In the end, what keeps me painting is the idea that so much of a legacy and so many opportunities can exist in the tiny space between a brush tip loaded with paint and the surface with which it is meant to connect.
Michael Pukac, Alabama born and Los Angeles based artist has quickly established himself as one of the more prolific live painters as well as made a name for himself by exhibiting constantly and relentlessly throughout the LA art community. His unique blend of seductive, classical imagery is cross pollinated with a witty, contemporary edge of subtle satire – all doused in reflective paint
