Though he has a way with words, Kid Rob comes from an athletic background who was a former Division 1 and Division 3 All-American & All-Conference Wide Receiver.
The creative talent began with inspirational pieces he would perform during the youth programs at church. He would later go on to write raps regarding social issues, love, and party tunes.

Cumming, GA – It’s natural for teenagers to push their boundaries. It’s a time in their lives when they’re becoming more and more independent and they’re treated like they’re not independent. Teens need to assert this independence while parents need to assert their authority. It can be a struggle.
Denise Holloway is a Certified Professional Coach and the founder of Life Unltd., a coaching practice that specializes in teens and parents of teens, taking them from fear and frustration to joy and appreciation.
“I truly believe that the limits we see, feel and believe are self-imposed,” says Holloway. “That’s the unlimited part. I love helping others break through those limits. What is it that you really want and what does that look like? I get the biggest charge from working with people who are confused and overwhelmed."
Holloway developed a passion for coaching teenagers following her experience with her son, a junior in high school at the time who simply would not wake up to go to school. Every morning they would go through this same process: she would tell him to wake up; within half an hour, a fight would ensue.
“One day we had one of our usual morning,” recalls Holloway. “I went back to the reading I was doing for the coaching program, a book called The Mastery of Love by Don Miquel Ruiz. I realized every word out of my mouth with my son had been about fear. At that point I decided to step back and come from a place of love and not fear.
“That’s always been behind the interest of being involved more with teenagers. I just had a lot of sympathy and empathy for parents and teenagers because it is a tough time for them. People don’t give teenagers enough credit for who they are so it’s a passion of mine to help them.”
In moments of uncertainty and fear what do you do? Do you buckle under the pressure or do you ride the wave?

It has been quite a journey for ISLANDER, who, in just over a year, have gone from obscurity to a band in constant radio rotation. Fueled with a combination of emotionally capturing songs and audience grabbing live shows, ISLANDER continue to lead at the forefront of their peers. The thrilling trip for this quartet began in the foothills of Greenville, S.C. with the release of their Victory Records debut Pains in 2013. Now, a lethal combination of alt-rock, punk and nu-metal that recalls the finest of bands like Refused and Deftones, ISLANDER have released their full length Violence & Destruction to critical recognition. Comprised of members Mikey Carvajal on vocals, Andrew Murphy on guitar, drummer Eric Frazier and bassist Chris Doot, ISLANDER recorded the album with producer Cameron Webb (SILVERSTEIN, ALKALINE TRIO) at Hollywood's NRG Studios. It is twelve tracks of American rock anthems spawned by individual struggle and organic affection. The result is a refreshing and unpredictable performance of cutting edge, modern-day rock with classic punk overtones fused with groove laden beats. Violence & Destruction awakens the nerves and lets life in. From the blockbuster single 'Coconut Dracula', to the outlaw collaboration of 'Criminals' with P.O.D.'s Sonny Sandoval and the fist-pumping title track, ISLANDER sonically 'demonstrate that fragile dichotomy between softness and weight in a riff', as described by Noisey/Vice. Alternative Press confirmed that ISLANDER was one the '100 Bands You Need To Know' as 2014 continues to shine with festival confirmations at Aftershock in Sacramento and Louder Than Life in Louisville.

Conversation with R & B singer Vaughn Anthony. Vaughn is the younger brother of nine-time Grammy Award-winning performer John Legend.
For Vaughn Anthony, the music business is family business. Influenced by his family’s services in his grandfather’s church, VA was instilled with the same passion for music as his older brother, John Legend. After nearly a decade of training, writing, and perfecting his craft as a performer along side John, VA is quickly evolving into R & B’s missing intonation. Emerging from the shadow of a superstar has required Vaughn to dig deeper into his soul and allow the flow of his magnetic energy to speak volumes. “When it comes to my younger brother, he’s got to prove that he can stand on his own,” shares Legend. “I want him to be out there flourishing as soon as possible. Musically I feel like he’s ready to do it,” recalls Vaughn’s older brother, Grammy-winning crooner John Legend.
