Honest. Raw. Authentic. Assertive and bold. Sweet – but without the bubble gum or sugarcoating. Those words can only be talking about one woman: Nikki Paige. But don’t try to put her in a box, because her style is all her own and can’t be contained by labels. “Never heard anything like this before” and “blown away” are typical responses to her anything-but-typical tracks and innovative production. Original and fresh, Nikki is also not an overnight sensation. She was born in Stockton, California and grew up in Orange County, quickly getting her start in the music business at the age of 11 when she landed her first publishing deal.
Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, artist, songwriter, and producer Jasmine Crowe lives by the slogan that “songs are the symptoms of my life.” An advocate of mental heath and addiction awareness, she uses music to speak about these topics to the tune of strong electropop melodies. Crowe took the grand prize “Song of the Year” award in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest with her 2018 single “Breaking Things”. A multi-instrumentalist skilled at piano, guitar and violin, Crowe puts her talent as a producer and musician into every song she creates.
The colorful and powerful music of Zoa Seo brilliantly mixes the melodic sensuality of RnB with the groove experimentation of Neo-soul. The vocal harmonies and powerhouse vocals within her music fill her sound with complexity, taste and authenticity. Zoa Seo’s Korean upbringing has also brought subtle elements of Kpop to her music, especially in her melodies. She moved to Los Angeles to broaden her Kpop influence towards the world of RnB and fuse these two into what nowadays is her music. She has taken her influences like D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, H.E.R., and Jessie J to create a fresh sound that tells personal stories while portraying a high level of musicality, honesty and sensuality.Instagram
