Stori Brooks has been a lot of things in her career: producer, poet, conflicted rapper, scenic storyteller. While her versatility keeps her afloat, it’s tough to get a bead on exactly who Brooks is and what she stands for—is she the conscious backpacker or the straight-talking street girl? She embodies the urban alternative, and she’s working on an album, to be entitled, “EVERYTHING IS GR8”, that offers her full narrative. The first single, “Parachutes”, taken off the upcoming album offers insight into her essence, finding the rapper at her most reflective. Maybe she’s assessing her current status and how she
Samantha Bouquin: “Contemplations on Solitude and Strings” – highly expressive
Connoisseurs of experimental or avant-garde chamber music may already know of Samantha Bouquin’s inventive and entrancing sounds. This is music of great integrity, startling vitality, and striking originality, yet it is virtually unknown outside the cult following that has appreciated these ingenious compositions. A cross between homespun classical populism and the sophisticated experimentation of the avant-garde, Bouquin’s music follows in the iconoclastic tradition of forward thinking composers, but with its own frank expression, exuberance, and wayward charm; yet it is also accessible to the casual listener in the directness of its material and the clarity of its techniques, no matter

Since then, he has signed a publishing deal with Universal Publishing and has worked with major artists such as Justin Bieber, David Guetta, Eminem, Ne-Yo, 50 Cent, Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx, Train, ZZ Ward, and Fantasia.

After that, Herman, Edwin and Sean Michael formed the musical trio The Gore Boyz (aka TGB) and have set out to make their mark in music. All three boys are enrolled in music lessons; 16-year-old Herman takes on the ivory with the keyboards/piano, Edwin at 13 plays guitar, and Sean Michael, who is only 11-years-old, takes care of the drums.
They have spent the last six years in intense talent development following the Berry Gordy Motown model. They are influenced by old school R&B bands and the trendy new sounds of pop, R&B, and hip-hop. These incredibly talented brothers are not only gifted musicians and entertainers; they are also honor students, community servants and accomplished athletes.
