Songwriter, producer, singer and all-around musical phenom Corey El handcrafts multidimensional songs that sparkle with contagious melodies, playful beats and razor-sharp lyrics. Each of his originals is an auditory time capsule that plunges listeners into his own memories and experiences, energized by the very essence of life: self-discovery; love and daring to let one’s own authentic colors shine. With a soulful wisdom far beyond his years and his finger on the pulse of his generation, Corey El lends a fresh perspective to decades’ worth of musical styles, inspired by the pioneering sounds of pop, R&B and urban music gurus such as B. Slade (Anthony Williams II), Kanye West and Michael Jackson.
The son of dexterous professional multi-instrumentalist Carl Lester-El, a young Corey El knew instantly how music can impact moods, viewpoints and connect people’s hearts and minds on a global scale. Because of his natural ear for a multitude of melodies and grooves, he was able to express himself instantly through singing. His father taught him how to track on a Casio keyboard, and as soon as he learned to write, he was making his own fully-formed tunes. By the time he was a teenager, he was already producing, writing and arranging for local artists in the studio, and he eventually felt the pull to focus on creating his own original work.
Now, Corey El continues to experiment with exciting melodic flavors, sounds, poetry and stories as he invents new ways to grow and express himself. A multi-talented and self-contained artist, he has already put out several singles via YouTube and streaming sites and created videos giving insight into his creative process. His new, empowering single, “Nothing Like You” encourages others to stay true to their authentic selves even when faced with bullies who try to limit their dreams. “Nothing Like You” is available now!

Jeremy Jones, also known as JC DaSINsation was born with promise. Although he was plagued by typical adversity endured by many bi-products of ‘single parent’ households, he faced the odds, confronted the odds, and eventually triumphed over the odds. One of two children born into chaos and less fortunate, poverty stricken circumstances he was submerged into a life of adversity and hardship. Often, he and his older sister were left unattended for days at a time, lacking the essential elements of survival and nourishment. Although his roots are traced back to Petersburg, Virginia where his mother pushed him into this world on the living room of his aunt’s home; shortly thereafter, they relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to reside with his maternal grandparents. In 1986, a year after arriving, his mother was found deceased in the West End district from an apparent drug overdose. With losing his mother to death and his father serving consecutive life sentences, he was left to discover his own identity and sift through life’s tumultuous journey on a quest for self-discovery. Along the way he encountered the good, the bad, and the very ugly aspects of growing up without a mother, a father or an encouraging family structure. During this time the only viable outlet he had was music. Gangster Rap along with Rhythm and Blues(R&B) were his surrogate parents. From NWA to Anita Baker, he absorbed both ends of the spectrum. While being an avid fan of the culture practically his entire life, only in recent years has he began to pursue his passion for music and its creative process. Continuing to perfect and hone his craft, he also has thespian ambitions. Determined to become an admirable human being he remains humbled with humility. Seeking to enlighten, educate and entertain, Jc DaSINsation maintains a full load juggling music, acting, family as well as ensuring a stable environment is kept.
On Friday, 22 May 2015 a great warship was decommissioned, the USS SAMUEL B. ROBERTS (FFG-58). In her honor, we will replay our show on the day that defined her.
Little has changed since the USS SAMUEL B. ROBERTS (FFG-58) struck a mine, and in retribution, the US Navy launched Operation PRAYING MANTIS.
The tactical and operational aspects of each, as well as combat leadership, remain constant even while the tools may have changed a bit.
To discuss this an more, our guest for the full hour will be Brad Peniston, author of "No Higher Honor: Saving the USS Samuel B. Roberts in the Persian Gulf," released in 2013 by the Naval Institute Press in paperback and on Kindle.
The Title says it. Why? It makes sense. I come from your place, or very close to it, Even if we are at odds we are closer than others. I am not campaigning for your money, am not a Politician, will be among the best smart Commander-In-Chiefs, even protecting our military men and women. What are your problems or worries. They are many of mine because many of them touch me or have touched me, touched my family and people we know and don’t know. I know an unknown person has no chance to be seen by you. I know that its stupid to do this, and it even looks more stupid. But it’s not that stupid when you consider all the stupid things that are going on right now or that have just happened. Please see me in a better smart light. I say things that you may not like or want to hear. But they are for our own good, They need to be said and brought to light and right. There are some fancy people running for President. I am not one of them. I am one among us, if you can understand that in all its fullness. It is surmised that when you reach the White House, things change you. Except for becoming better, I will not change the good, right, smart within me or what must and should be done. For all, I want much better for you: people, animals, our earth. The White House belongs to you, with a person of the people, ordinary if necessary and not to a Political Party. If you see it that way, could you and will you put together 120,000,000 Write-In Ballots for a Presidency being for us, with just one of us in there seeing to a better United States and for Americans of all blood types of O's, A's and B's. If that many are cast, we will not have a divided country or Congress. One willing caring for all doing person can start a better world. You can begin with such a President. This idea is for you, not me. thanks, bwell, c2it, i am often called c2, Curt Clinton
