    in Poetry

    There are some artists who are just rooted in your soul..who make no bullshyt excuses.....who just get right down to it...Wil Gibson is THAT artist... I promise..

He now lives in Portland (the one in Maine) and likes it a lot there (you probably would too). He writes too many love poems and not nearly enough of his novel.

    Epiphany's House Featuring Qua L'amar

    in Indie Music

    Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy...As you know I do my very best to reach out and grab the dopest Indie artists for ya'll...so...here....catch...See ya at the show on Sunday..Love,E



    Qua (Kway) L'amar known to some as former lead singer of NJ5ive (MTV's Top Pop Group & BET's 106&Park W.O.W All Star Champions)


     


    is bursting back on the scene with his newly released single entitled "Good Girls". Since the disbanding of the group back in 2009 Qua has


    been working alongside John Arnold and Terrance Colter of SoulFull Music Group in a 3-year artist development process. After releasing an EP earlier this year entitled "The Qua L'amar Revue", Qua decided he'd pull from his "Soulfull" roots.


    "I remember being a kid over my grandparents on Saturday mornings, eating cereal and watching cartoons and being hit by that feeling


    that The Temptations, Teddy Pendergrass, Marvin Gaye, James Brown and Bobby Blue Bland all gave you. This process gave me that


    feeling again and this project is an inside out reflection of those Saturday mornings." Good Girls is the lead single from the EP.

    in Entertainment

    I love love love finding wonderful artists to share with you all!!!  Teri Tobin is a treasure..I promise you..please join us as we sit a spell and chew a bit...see ya at the show..Love,Epiphany


    There are layers to award-winning, soul singer/songwriter Teri Tobin.  Each layer reveals a lusher depth, a more meaningful experience, an expressive passion and an abiding generosity, in Tobin’s music and womanhood.  All of who Tobin is and what she’s lived through comes through her testimonial verses and agile instrument. Four projects deep, Tobin’s artistry has blossomed on her latest offering, Truth Is… (Top Notch/Ingrooves/Universal).


    With the winter 2014 release of Truth Is…, Tobin is preparing for her inaugural international tour to share further gratitude to the worldwide fans who have kept her music dreams alive against an unforgiving business and embraced her just as she is. With a sack full of honest and empowering songs in tow, now it’s Teri Tobin’s turn to encourage listeners to allow love and support to happen in their lives, and to stand just as boldly and proudly in their truth as they have allowed Teri Tobin, with dignity and grace. And that’s the truth.

    "..listening to Julie Dexter is like falling in love.."


    "Sensational yet subtle. A singer to die for who creates an urgent need for superlatives yet to be invented."

Having shared the spotlight with a host of cutting-edge artists, including Mint Condition, Jill Scott, Bilal, Omar, Loose Ends, Rachelle Ferrell, Ledisi, Eric Roberson and Raheem DeVaughn to name a few, Julie not only holds up her own with them but has been praised and respected by them too.
