The son of a pastor, like many, CAM got his start in the church. His gift as a musician and an artist were discovered and flourished here. But instead of pursuing Gospel music, CAM wanted to make an impactful splash on the Hip Hop industry. He says "I'm gospel, not in the sense that I sing or write gospel music, but that I bring good news." Going against the usual grain of "money, hoes, and clothes" in Hip Hop, CAM's music projects a spirit of fun, love, and consciousness, engaging a vast and diverse audience.
Coming off of the success of his last project "The Life of Henry Wiggins", CAM is currently embarking on a new project, new sound, and new movement with his debut album, "Higher Learning". His first single, "Juke.", has already garnered positive reactions, acclaim, and opportunities for his growth.

Krysten Simone attends Belmont University Majoring in Commercial Music, where she continues to better her artistry.
Motivated by Music, Young Quael’s love for music began at the age of 7. His talents were displayed at family events, talent shows, and the church choir. His grandfather, John Feazell of the band “FeaFunk” from Clearwater, Florida greatly influenced his love for music. His highly anticipated debut mix tape entitled “Adventures of Quaelman” releases Summer 2011.
Influences: Roger and Zapp, Outkast, Luther Vandross, Lost Boyz, Tupac, Biggie, Cold Play, Boyz to Men, Mint Condition, Method Man, Missy Elliott
Ashley Leone is a Philly native whose hometown musical roots have influenced the R&B/Pop sound that defines her. Her extensive touring had her performing at nearly every venue in the Philadelphia area including the TLA, World Café Live, and multiple sold out shows at the legendary Tin Angel.
Relocating to Nashville in 2014 was another big step for this 20 year old. "I'm constantly inspired by the world around me and my songs grow from a combination of personal experiences or something as simple as noticing something in nature around me," Ashley said. "Some of the artists I gravitate towards for inspiration include Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill, Beyoncé, John Legend, Alicia Keys and Ed Sheeran."
Songwriting is a very personal experience for Ashley. "My songwriting and live performances allow me to express my feelings in a way that in my own personal life, I would usually keep at arm's length." Ashley continues, "It is the best therapy for me to deal with my own emotions, share these feelings with others and make a human connection on a different level."
Ashley's first single, "Spinning," was chosen as the feature track for a nationwide campaign for Justice clothing stores. Earlier this year, she was one of five chosen out of 18,000 songwriters as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriters Competition.
2016 will see the release of her debut EP, SugarCoated.
When Ashley isn't writing, recording, and playing live shows you will most likely find her in just about any coffee shop around town.
