When people ask, “How long have you been together?” Erika, Crystal, and LJ always say, “Forever.” Since they were 3, 4, and 7 years old, the Atlanta-based sisters of Amor Kismet, have been singing, writing, and playing together.
Throughout the years, Amor Kismet have honed their performance skills, playing acoustic guitar and congas, and singing at countless open mics and festivals. Inspired by artists such as Selena, Sade, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, and Aaliyah, Amor Kismet aims to write timeless songs that transcend genres.
Amor Kismet recently won #FlashUnsigned, a Twitter competition hosted by Bill Werde (Billboard, Rolling Stone) to spotlight unsigned acts. He commented, “Three gorgeous sisters sing like angels with ton of personality. Unsigned? Not for long…Thank me from the stage when you win your first Grammy.”
Since then, the industry has taken notice. BET named Amor Kismet as one of the most promising new acts in music and selected them to perform at this year’s BET Experience. Shortly after, the girls made their NYC debut at the legendary SOB’s.
Now, Amor Kismet is ready to give people a taste of their unique sound, which combines pop, R&B, neosoul, dance, and world music influences. The Love EP marks their first release of recorded music. All four songs were co-written by the girls and Michael Dean, and produced by Bill Zimmerman.

Every so often an artist emerges that captures our attention, makes us sit up and take note of what pure talent and anointing looks and sounds like. Jessica Reedy is truly one of those artists … one listen and you will never forget the voice.
Jessica Reedy first came to our attention on the national TV competition BET’s Sunday Best. She attended the Season 2 Sunday Best audition in Washington DC on a whim to support a friend. She quickly found herself in the Top 20 onto the show’s main stage performing for judges Mary Mary and Bebe Winans. Reedy made it all the way to finals eventually being named runner up. Throughout that process and the subsequent loss, self-doubt crept in. While Reedy never thought she had the talent to make it, God used the totality of the experience to bring her into her call as both an artist and minister of music.
“My insecurities, my fears, my guilt and pain were all brought before me – the things I thought I had let go. I learned so much about myself during and after Sunday Best. I learned how little my faith was in God and His abilities … in spite of my shortcomings God still proved HIMSELF to me,” said Reedy. “I started discovering how much HE Loved me, cared for me, and how HE thought of me as HIS beloved. I learned how much I didn’t know about myself.”“The Sunday Best experience changed me tremendously,” she continued. “Being on the Show allowed me to see God like never before … He used the Show to teach me what it really meant when He said ‘I’ll never leave you nor forsake you.’ It marked the beginning of my in depth search to know Christ and why He loves me so much.”
Over the last few years I’ve experienced extreme ups and downs with life, depression, disappointment with my career and even the feeling of being left behind,” confesses urban inspirational vocalist DeWayne Woods who burst on to the music scene in a big way with his 2006 Top 5 radio smash “Let Go” that was written and produced by Maroon 5’s P.J. Morton. The song spent a solid year on various Billboard Magazine singles charts and won him three Stellar Awards including Best New Artist of the Year. After other radio hits such as “Living on the Top” and “I Won’t Be Afraid,” things quieted down for the Kansas City native and that brings us to the themes that echo throughout Woods’ first CD in four years, “Life Lessons” (Soul Therapy/ Central South Distribution). “When my manager and I started receiving music from songwriters, I always made sure that the songs we chose reflected some part of my life. I believe that’s why `Let Go’ was so special, because I lived it. As the record started to build and we worked with the writers about certain things I wanted to express, I realized it became a teaching record full of lessons that I’ve learned over the years. I’ve gone through these experiences not just for me, but to help someone who may be experiencing the same things.”
I had broken dreams; I was so full of pain
But then You came and now I’ll never be the same again
I had tried it all and I wanted to change
And right then you came and now I’ll never be the same again
Whether it’s a new relationship or a renewed sense of faith, many people have been in a similar situation as the one described in the engaging song “Never Be The Same Again.” Much of this thought-provoking Urban Inspirational album revolves around the notions of comfort and hope. There’s
LOTL The Quiet Storm Welcomes Adesha. Debut 2 New Singles ( I Love You I Hate You ) & (He Don't Know ) From Her upcoming Album.Powerful, sultry, dynamic, and moving are just a few words people have used to describe Adesha’s voice. ? Oakland, California native, Adesha made her solo debut singing for hundreds of people at The War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco at the tender age of six. By age ten she had starred and co-starred in musicals, she sang a jingle for a commercial, and had performed solo at a few of San Francisco’s live music venues. Years of training from singing in church; vocal coaching from her mother Deltrina Johnson, a trained gospel singer; and numerous live performances would follow the training she received in her primary years. At age 13 Adesha joined a girl group called “Under 21”. The trio spent most of their high school career performing and in the recording studio. At age 16 Adesha embarked upon a spiritual journey that would change the course of her future. Being famous was no longer her life’s goal. She wanted her music to make a difference; she wanted her music to change lives. This decision would lead to Adesha leaving “Under 21”. The resistance she experienced from her cohorts, management, and peers as a result of her decision sent Adesha into a bit of a depression. She would spend the next 4 years soul searching and took hiatus from singing.
