    HOLLY ELLE

    in Music

    Holly Elle, a Canadian classically trained singer with a passion for pop, brings to the U.S. a unique twist on modern mainstream music. Elle was captivated by the sparkle of the spotlight at a young age.    Much like her musical background, Elle’s music is very diverse. While she knows how to let loose and show her fans a good time, the pop singer with a divatude has a more serious side to her as well. Elle’s viral video release, “Freak,” is a lyrically promiscuous song about sexual orientation that is her response to recent teen suicides and bullying. The music video for the song received attention from many online bloggers and was featured in a well-known LGBT magazine, The Advocate.  Her music relates to her fans and meets people wherever they are whether it’s helping them cope or encouraging them to just let loose on the dance floor.   This side of her is portrayed perfectly through her upcoming EP, Leopardess. Although her forthcoming release is a smooth R&B blend heavily influenced by pop, don’t be surprised when you hear sparks of other genres, seamlessly tied into the mix.   She stops by on Wednesday, June 19, at 8pm EST.

    Holly Elle, a Canadian classically trained singer with a passion for pop, brings to the U.S. a unique twist on modern mainstream music. Before heading to America to chase her dreams, Elle was featured on two albums that were released nationwide in her native country: Things You Never Thought I’d Say by Freddy, and Around The Universe in 80 Minutes – A Tribute to Klaatu.
    Growing up, Elle frequented the music parties held by her parents on a regular basis, where they shared the European folk music of their childhood. They also introduced Elle and her siblings to music from their era such as the Beatles, ABBA and Elton John. Her brothers had an impact on her musically as well. While off at law school in the UK, they were introduced to British Pop and brought it back home. Elle’s diverse background helped her develop an awareness of various genres of music from many different eras.  “I grew up around music so I naturally acquired a deep appreciation and love for it,” recalls Elle.

    SWAG Radio Presents: The Giovannis and Sherene Holly

    in Books

    Kenni York is the author of over 11 titles to date. Kenni's love for the literary arts drives her every move. She has ghost written several novels, teaches creative writing classes for youth and adults in Atlanta, serves as the creative and executive producer for the online series Literary Ladies of the ATL, while still finding the time to pen her own titles. Kenni's works have a creative flare that is a combination of mind blowing dialogue, vivid details, and compelling story lines. Her goal is to make a difference with  all of her projects and not just a dollar.


    In southern Dallas, Texas, Sunny Giovanni, or "Gio" as she likes to be called, was born on the fifth day of June in 1989. Born to a mother who was a teacher and a graduate from Texas A&M University, you couldn't so much as watch a Disney movie if you hadn't read the book before hand. Gio has had a very strong history with literature, diversifying from poetry (winning placements in oratorical contests), to thriller short stories as a way to vent her frustrations.


    My name is Sherene Holly Cain. I was born prematurely 3 months early in a car to Gwendolyn Baker and Sammie Holly. I was raised in Compton, CA. I'm 40+ and married to a wonderful man by the name of Darrell Cain. I have 3 beautiful children. My oldest son Demetri is 23 and I have a set of twins, I'munique and Shameek, age 15.


    I love reading, singing, cooking, and of course writing. I have a full time government job but hope to one day pursue my writing on a full time basis. Writing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I wrote a stage play at age 9 and several poems, songs and short stories thereafter.

    Holly Stephey talks to Joint Information center about Oil spill in Santa Barbara

    in News

    In this pre recorded show I talk to "Joint Information Center" about the current situation in Santa Barbara and the oil spill. Make sure to be prepared to take down the website and Phone number you may call to volunteer or help!


    This Oil Spill has affected so many people and our wildlife in so many ways and they are working round the clock to help however they can ..It was enough to prompt Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency for Santa Barbara County.


    The cleanup could last months, officials said. For now, currents, tides and winds make the oil plume "a moving target" as it drifts offshore, said U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Jennifer Williams.


    "It's a continual effort," added U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer David Mosley. "It's not something that we can say, 'Yeah, we are hitting it out of the park,' but it's something our guys are dedicated to."


    The size of the spill, which began contaminating California's beaches on Tuesday, is equivalent to the volume of water the average American residence uses in a year.


    As of Thursday, vessels had skimmed 7,770 gallons of oily water from the ocean, McMichael said.
