Kate Lamont

Born in the UK, singer Kate Lamont had trouble embracing her Indiana roots until later in her career. But the heartland inevitably laid the groundwork for her songwriting and love of collaboration. She recorded 7 collaborative works as well as 2 solo albums during her tenure in the midwest and spent a decade working in and building the Indianapolis arts and music community. Arriving in the Bay Area in 2012 with a folk foundation and a larger than life spirit of soul, Lamonts sound was pushed even further. Kate released a self-titled contemporary R&B record in 2013, and completed an unreleased collection of work in 2017, What Happens Next is Everything, including the singles On Again, and Everything.  

Collaboration remained a key focus in 2018 as Lamont joined forces with world-renowned artists Michael Henderson, Kahil El Zabar, and Corey Wilkes, as well as up and coming Bay Area producers Ian McKee, NOBL, DJ Flow, and Mani Draper. To top it off, Kate landed a TEDx presentation on the creative power of collaboration. 2019 brings with it new music releases, such as "2 Forever, One 4 Me", featuring Kev Choice on keys.

Kates writing style and work ethic are influenced by mentors like Sade, Prince, and Joni Mitchell: artists whose ability to bleed pure emotion set them apart as much as their sky-high technical skills. Lamonts vision of music as a unifying force continues to fuel songs about truth, empowerment, spirituality, and vulnerability, with lyrics connecting the dots from personal experiences to the great social issues of our time.

Kev Choice

Pianist. Emcee. Producer. Bandleader. Sideman. Music Historian. Kev Choice wears many hats, and all of them fit. Blessed with prodigious talent, plus the skill and dedication to his craft to pull it off, the Oakland-based artist is redefining what it means to be a musician in this day and age. Not too many classically-trained pianists who hold Masters degrees in jazz can rock microphones with blazing-hot 16s.

Yet such versatility comes naturally to Choice, whose diverse array of influences ranges from Prince to Rakim to A Tribe Called Quest to Stevie Wonder to McCoy Tyner to Chopin and Ravel.

Safiyah Hernandez

Bay Area native Safiyah Hernandez' rich voice and songwriting ability are notable compared to any modern pop artist, but what's truly remarkable is that she is not even a teenager yet. Influenced by iconic artists like the Beatles, Lauryn Hill, and Sade, Safiyah accompanies herself on both ukelele and piano. Safiyah also finds inspiration through acting, creative writing, and fine art, performing at festivals and cafe's throughout the region. With limitless potential and plenty of time to create, she is truly one to watch.
