King Rasheed
King Rasheed
Beloved R&B Crooner, King Rasheed, has been seen on stage with some of the most revered talent of our time- whether singing background for Grammy Winner, Monica, opening a show for (the late) Abraham McDonald, or singing with the Andre Crouch Boys Choir, industry greats have long recognized and cherished his velvety voice, and warm presence. He has graced the stages of major venues from the BMI Awards to the Shrine Auditorium, to the House of Blues. He got his start singing in the Baptist church at the age of 5, and later attended the prestigious Hamilton High School Music Academy, where he honed his craft at a young age. King Rasheed has been busy in the studio, and will soon be stepping into the spotlight. Watch for his new single in 2019!

Bethany Saint Smith
Bethany Saint Smith
Bethany Saint-Smith is a singer/ songwriter with an old Blues, modish Americana style that carries tastes of Rockabilly in her sound. She’s had bands in New York, Chicago, and Buenos Aires. The Supreme’s Susaye Greene said, “Bethany has the instincts of an aged American blues singer. There’s a tug in the heart when you hear her sing that grabs you and makes you wonder what she's lived through. She reminds me of the earthy Odetta of 60's Folk-rock fame, or of Nina Simone's scathingly sophisticated perceptions of life.” Bethany pursued into the music scene of NY, sharing stages throughout the East Coast from New Jersey’s Stone Pony to NYC’s famous Webster Hall, The Knitting Factory and to end the era of her Southern-Rock style band at The Bitter End. She kept loyal to the powerful local music clubs such as The Lakeside Lounge, Banjo Jim’s, where she performed with Kent Burnside (Grandson of Blues legend R.L. Burnside) and shared moments with the Queen of Folk, Odetta at one of her final shows before she left her footsteps behind. Bethany frequently played all over the East Village at places such as Hi-Fi Bar (formerly Brownies) and the Marquee Lounge on the Bowery where she’s gotten to perform with Neal Casal (guitarist of Ryan Adams & The Cardinals and Circles of the Sun), Niagara, Otto’s Shrunken Head and several other anchors in the East Village. Bethany’s recorded in Chicago, New York, Buenos Aires and has music out on Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, YouTube, and iTunes. California raised, and musically traveled, Bethany is back and working on new music and her writing.
