Gritz and Jelly Butter

Gritz and Jelly ButterJust one listen to the hottest, and most explosive Atlanta-based band, Gritz & Jelly Butter, and you too will become a believer in the "Gritz Revolution" ... the musical revolution that is. The trio of musicians and vocalists were formed by what they refer to as the "natural mystic", and is committed to sending a message of personal freedom through their unique style of music and creative expression.

Best consumed live, a standard serving of Gritz & Jelly Butter includes a mix of Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggae, and Classic Rock vibes, delivered with a distinct and unique flair that is undeniable. At any moment, a sultry, well-formed ballad, delivered with gentle precision by the soulful crooner, j.winston. Moments later, your mood is suddenly interrupted by a raw and captivating jam session joint!

The rhythmic combination of Live Keyboard, Drums, and proper thumbpage pulsating on Bass will awaken your senses, and delight your ears. Performing the perfect blend of old and new songs, while mixing in several of Gritz & Jelly Butter's original songs, paves the way for a new brand of soul/funk music.

Listen to the tracks in the background as you do your "You" thing. You'll find that you won't need to work too hard to feel or understand their message. If you're patient enough, you will see how the music will actually find you.

Rahbi

RahbiLike the infectious energy found on the dance floor of legendary nightclub Studio 54, multi-genre artist RAHBI unites beautiful people from all walks of life. RAHBI honed his skills as a dynamic performer at his grandfather's church in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. Finding solace there, and with the encouragement of his parents, the young star quickly realized that he was meant to be on stage. While still in middle school, RAHBI met legendary music executive LA Reid & penned his first major record deal with the group 4th Avenue. Thereafter, the group disbanded, propelling the young artist to pursue a solo career. It was then that RAHBI morphed into the rock star we know today; leader of his beautiful people and ambassador in freeing minds.

RAHBI is praised especially for his dynamic live shows and his versatile vocal range where he perfectly blends the smooth sounds of r&b, energy packed pop/rock & sophisticated funk. He takes musical inspiration from artists as diverse as Prince, Grace Jones, David Bowie, Rick James, George Michael, The Clark Sisters, and aims to combust stereotypical ideals in music & art.

RAHBI has rightfully gained the admiration of industry greats such as Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae and has opened for the likes of SZA, Tyler The Creator, Big Freedia, Bilal and more. While being featured on VH1’s Make A Band Famous, Natasha Bedingfield was overcome by RAHBI's infectious melodies and stated: "I can't get it out of my head... it's hot!" RAHBI was recently summoned to performed at AFROPUNK Atlanta and the historic Apollo theater in Harlem, New York.

RAHBI's music comes full circle on his latest project, GoldenChild EP Trilogy. Split into 3 Trimesters, RAHBI leads his Beautiful People to love and encourages them to embrace what makes them special. "Love is the miracle that sets us free" - RAHBI

RAHBI is currently hard at work in the studio creating new music to inspire minds & blur lines. Stay tuned.

Dri Jack

Dri JackYou’ve heard something like this before, but it’s been a long, long time. Think “young” Stephanie Mills, or remember Whitney as the “Golden Girl”. Most recently was “little” Monica. Now, make the acquaintance of the reincarnation. The “Debutante Diva”, DriJack.

Merely clearing 5-feet, DriJack’s pedigree tells you why she’s a big deal anyway. She’s homegrown. Born into a musical family, led by a pastor, DJ earned her crown at one of the South’s legendary superstar incubators, Tri-Cities High School, where the esteemed alumni includes OutKast and Kandi Burruss.

In her debut performance at the 2012 ICON Awards, media and industry insiders experienced the allure of this fresh-faced darling when she performed “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” in tribute to Whitney Houston.

Also in 2012, the songbird earned a Presidential Scholars nomination and was a Young Arts Finalist, joining an elite group of entertainers including Vanessa Williams, Nicki Minaj, Viola Davis and Keri Washington.

On February 14, 2013, DriJack presented the world with Queen of Hearts, a collection of five songs, recounting the tales of a young and hopeful heart, with highlights including the title track Queen of Hearts and the magically infectious lead single, Fairytale. A swagged-out Cinderella story, Fairytale, takes DriJack and her glass slippers on a starry trail, producing the perfect musical hybrid of pop and nouveau soul.

Inspiring us to live like royalty, DriJack is the leader of the new school. The crown is in sight. Luckily, we’ll be able to hear all about it.
