Jazzlyn Raul Strickland, a.k.a. Ides, is one of 7 children born to Cortez and Dara Strickland.  She is the mother of two gorgeous sons – Christopher, age 9 years and Ethan, age 6 years.  Jazzlyn grew up singing in church, which is where I met her.  I was assistant choir director at the time.  Her father is an ordained minister and her mother is a talented Christian writer.  Jazz started writing poetry and her own songs at about 9 or 10.  From 2009 to 2010, she was a member Kansas City rock band, " Bad Wine".  Recently, Jazz has had the opportunity to collaborate with Royce Diamond on his newly released album, Mirrors and Smoke.  She has also worked with Monday 7E on his album titled "The Saga Continues", which also features artists Tech N9ne and Snug Brimm.

Jazz is currently working on writing her own music.  She enjoys the art of music, as it is such a peaceful way for self-expression.  Her greatest desire is to sell her music and gain a huge following.  Jazz understands that it is a blessing to have even a small amount of talent and hopes to one day to share her talent with the world.
