Avery*Sunshine’s vocals have been coined as thunderous and gospel bred, but her music is true soul. The singer, songwriter and pianist released her self-titled album in 2010, which included the break through singles “Ugly Part of Me” and “All in My Head”. Her sophomore project, The Sun Room is set for release this year.
GRAMMY award-winning artist, singer and songwriter Algebra Blessett released her debut album Purpose in 2008 under Kedar Entertainment label. She’s worked alongside artists such as Bilal, India.Arie, Anthony Hamilton, but most noted for the wedding day duet with Anthony David entitled, “4evermore”. She teamed up with GRAMMY Award winner Esperanza Spalding for the 2012 single, “Black Gold”. Her sophomore album, Recovery is set for release this year and includes her new single, “Nobody but You”.
GRAMMY award-winning artist, songwriter and actor, Q Parker, emerged onto the music scene in the late 90’s as member of the multi-platinum, 20 million plus record selling R&B group, 112. In October of 2012 Q released his critically-acclaimed debut solo album, The MANual. The album not only yielded multiple Top 15 Billboard-charting singles including the hits, “Show You How” and “YES” but it was also named as one of the “Best R&B Albums Of The Year by iTunes.” In the midst of earning a reputation as a bonafied solo artist, Q is currently touring across the US and internationally with 112, while simultaneously recording for his sophomore album.
