An absorber of sound and inspired by all music styles, DJ S.O.U.L.- O specializes in the art of making music and is recurrently sought-after for eye-catching turntablism, original music production, reworks, remixes, and live DJing.
Lynette White is committed to her desire to create positive, uplifting music that appeals to multi-cultural people such as herself. This desire came to fruition in 2004 with the independent release of her first solo LP entitled, I Will Lift My Voice. Lynette has received numerous Marlin Awards nominations and a Hopeton Lewis CGMA award.
Rodrick Freeman is a spoken word artist, world traveler, student and teacher.
E. Amato is privileged to perform her words around the world. Her first poetry collection, Swimming Through Amber, was published in 2010 by Zesty Pubs. In 2011, she competed as a storm poet at WOWps and is a member of the Los Angeles Slam Team.
Matt Gamin, also known as Maestro Gamin, is relatively new to the Los Angeles spoken word scene. A mainstay at such venues as Natural High and the Speak Easy open mic in downtown L.A., Maestro captures and mesmerizes listeners, taking them through a study in syncopation and feeling. His “word rhythms” have been said to be “uplifting” and inspiring amongst his fellow poets.
