Who is Karter Jaymes? A most versatile acoustic singer/songwriter, Karter's songs can't be defined by any one category. Writing styles range from soul, blues, folk and alternative sounds. A blend of seasoned, soulful vocal tones takes lyrical flight into the versatility of today. Karter Jaymes is now a Grammy nominated artist for the album, "Joy," recorded by Teddy Pendergrass.
Kevin Jackson is a guitarist, bassist, and producer from Baltimore who has been performing for over 25 years. Over the years, Jackson has recorded and performed with artists such as Jennifer Holliday, Oli Silk, Chico Debarge, Kenny Wesley, Marc Evans, Marcell and The Truth, April Sampe, and a host of national and local artists. His first solo CD, Stories in Color, debuted in May 2012.
Chuck "The Mad Ox" Maddox: Forget calling him a poet, The Mad Ox is an entertainer who uses poetry and rhymes as tools to lure you in. He's most unique because truly he doesn't have a care on what you think and has no boundaries when he writes along with a performance unlimitless in style, this man isn't afraid to be a fool or sensual or militant or a combination of all. Everyone says that they are multidimensional but Chuck shows it consistently or he's just Skitzo?
Deletta Gillespie, a multidisciplinary performing artist, singer-songwriter and educator who creates musical and theatrical work that focuses on the themes of social change, justice and spirituality.
Janice Short - Theatre Arts Professor at Morgan State University, and from the Spiritual Empowerment Center: Jolita Berry, Jackie House-Bey, Eraka Rouzorondu, Shameeka Dream, Ernie Martin, Tomás Wayne Edison and a few Surprise Guests.
