DLEE

With no formal music education, DLee’s innate musical talent manifested itself, from a young age, as he began singing in the church choir. A love for bass playing ensued, aged ten, which organically led to creating tunes and writing lyrics.

Born in Beaumont, Texas, and with strong familial roots in the deep south, his exposure to the world of music was intense, from Gospel and high school jazz band to a home life filled with musical culture, encouraged by his family. DLee was able to hone his musical gifts for melody and lyrics, influenced by such greats as Otis Redding, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield.

Self-taught in various instruments, he continually developed his own unique sound, while concurrently excelling in basketball at Loyola Marymount University, which took him professionally to Europe. There, a major modeling agency also scouted his look, and launched a successful modeling career, appearing in over hundred national commercials, affording him time to further hone his craft, in his first love, music. Guitar in hand, along the way, his prolific flair for singing/songwriting became recognized by the industry.

Dedicated and passionate, DLee was able to establish himself as a fulltime musician/producer, working with the likes of Macy Gray, Kim Hill, Monk, Medusa, Keaton Simons. DLee has also collaborated with Leon Ware ( Marvin Gaye ‘I want you’) and James Gadson, written lyrics and shared vocals with Adrian Younge and Will Hart of The Delfonics, and composed music for film and TV commercials. Screen work has included musical supervision and composition for Cassidy Way, The Road to Redemption, A Scanner Darkly and The Making of 300 the movie.

Together with actor/singer Gary Dourdan as Sugar Free the Band, DLee has toured the US, the West Indies, France, Morocco and Dubai, including a number of charity performances. The album ‘Soul Revival’ was DLee’s first episode as a solo artist, featuring ten songs that are a pure expression of his heart and soul. Currently, DLee is putting the finishing touches on his follow-up album – release date to be advised.

Bambi Feel Good

Bambi Feel Good (born Amberlin Morse) is a muti-instrumentalist, producer and composer from Long Beach, CA.

She is the granddaughter of DJ Still Bill who spun local SoCal venues from the ’70s until his death. He passed down his love of music to Bambi’s mother who worked at the now defunct Music Plus record store. Before she was born, Bambi’s father had an opportunity to break into the music industry but his moment fell through.

A huge poster of Sade’s Stronger Than Pride album cover hung in the bedroom of Bambi’s parents. The radio dial was always set on hip-hop, r&b, soul, pop, new wave, quiet storm and smooth jazz.

Her first instrument was violin which she quit in the third grade. Next, she picked up the keyboard which she quit after two lessons.

When Bambi was 13, she saved money from picking strawberries outside of Seattle to buy her first guitar.

She began gigging in Los Angeles in 2008 and is focused on her solo EP. She is also a member of an Afro Latin band called Tropi Corillo and is the front woman for the Venice Beach duo Bambi + Felix. She has played many music festivals including South By Southwest and the Abbot Kinney Festival.

Lubiana

Lubiana is a Belgian-Cameroonian singer, songwriter and musician born in Belgium on December the 12th 1993. Her musical career began at the age of 8 when she started studying piano, guitar, saxophone, music theory and performing arts. At 17, she started studying Vocal Jazz at the Conservatory of Leuven, where she now has a Master Degree.

When Lubiana turned 21 she made a dream in which she saw for the first time the kora*. A month later her dream became reality when she heard a kora player in the streets of Spain. Like love at first sight, she knew that this amazing instrument would change her life.

Through the sound of the kora, Lubiana started to reconnect with her African roots and learn more about her ancestors, story and Bamiléké* tribe as well as she began a powerful inner journey

With the Kora strapped to her back, she showcased at Ronnie Scott’s Club in London on the tracks of Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. She collaborated with Marlon Roudette who earned several golden and platinum awards. Furthermore she also collaborated with Massive Attack’s DA Michael Timothy and with Amy Winehouse and Alex Hepburn’s producer, Ian Barter.

Lubiana also drew the attention of other artists such as “Daddy Lessons”‘ composer interpreted by Beyoncé and the well-known Kora player,Toumani Diabaté (Sting,Bjork,M…).

Lubiana’s upcoming EP named “Break Free” will be released in September 2018. “Break Free” takes us on soulful, afro electro-pop journey, directed and produced by Samuel Rabet (e.g. Mohombi, Caballero & Lomepal, Beedie, …).

“Break Free” is more than just an EP. It redraws the quest of an adventurous and reckless young woman in thirst of freedom in a powerful and sincere way. Lubiana belongs to the next generation of talented women who, challenge the status quo, break rules and open up minds.
