NeoSoulJah
- Discovered at an International Music Conference by Stellar/Dove award winner recording artist Babbie Mason.

Hassan Khan
- Hassan’s history goes back to the mid 60’s when this master bass player, at the time in his teens, was playing with “The First Family of Soul”, The Five Stairsteps, best known for their 70’s song “O-o-h Child”, and in the early 70’s Hassan was playing with another legendary family, the gospel, soul and R&B singing group, The Staple Singers. He was married for some years to the internationally known singer, Chaka Khan, during which time he was instrumental in developing her into the dynamic vocalist that she is today.


Gem Avery
- Gliding effortlessly from contralto to altissimo, Gem Avery’s 5 octaves is nourishment for enlightened music aficionados worldwide. Heavily influenced by Sade, Minnie Riperton, Nancy Wilson, Dinah Washington, and Betty Wright Gem's artistic eminence evolved to share common ingredients with several legendary female trail blazers. Her sound burns with the vocal intensity of Anita Baker, it speaks with the vocal dexterity of Chaka Khan, yet it brags with the sassy sincerity of Erykah Badu. For listeners who crave a delicate taste that will more than soothe picky palates, Gem Avery’s perfectly seasoned art is sweet enough for dessert yet savory enough for the main course. The sound – the feel, rather – of her voice is powerful yet subtle, gritty yet smooth, soothing yet electrifying, original yet nostalgically familiar... (Reverbnation.com)


Andre "Versatile" Hunter
- Versatile has assumed the role as the R&B Jay-Z for his new management team, D-lux Entertainment and all affiliated companies. Singing as a youth that grew into poetic verses transforming into song lyrics and then killa rhymes not to long after is how Versatile got started in the many degrees of music. He is currently working on his solo album titled "Questions & Answers" while being the man behind the music on different artists' albums soon to debut.


Billy Jones Bluez
- He is a young man from Arkansas who is truly interested in advancing and extending ‘Great Soul Music' from the Ancient to the Future’ and making sure that it is available for future generations. Billy Jones brings back the Thrill that once belonged to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush. ...A refreshing blast of the really great sound of Healing Blues, Jazz, Funk Music.
