Music

Joan Cartwright

has toured five continents and 16 countries including the U.S.A., eight European countries, Jamaica, Brazil, Mexico, Ghana, Gambia, South Africa, China and Japan, with her swinging brand of jazz and blues.

She is a composer and her book, IN PURSUIT OF A MELODY contains 40 songs and lyrics to standard songs: "A Night in Tunisia" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Blue Bossa" by Kenny Dorham, "Tune Up" by Miles Davis and "Bessie's Blues" by John Coltrane.

Joan's book also contains two lectures that she's given to over 8,000 children and college students, in U.S., Switzerland, Sicily, China and Japan: WOMEN IN JAZZ and SO, YOU WANT TO BE A SINGER? Her workshops are dynamic and educational, highlighting the pitfalls and benefits of the music business. She contends that, "Knowing music theory is a step in the right direction for any singer who truly wants to excel in the world of music!"

Diva JC names any ensemble of musicians she works with "Jazz Hotline" because the music swings and it's always HOT! Her most famous Blues are "Nobody's Husband", "OH, Baby!" and "Treat Me Right And You Don't Have To Marry Me".

Natalie Brown

I am Canadian! Yeah, Canucklehead in the house. I’m a vocalist and songwriter. My music has been described as a lot of things, but currently most closely sounds like Pop/R&B with a dash of Electro-Soul flavor. I’ve co-owned my record label Identity Music Group since 2000 and run my own publishing company, natfunk music (BMI). I love animals – cats in particular. Music is my reason for living. My lowest low and highest high spans four and a half octaves. I am a reformed nail biter.

I currently call Toronto Canada “home”; although I really enjoyed the time I spent living in the DC/Maryland area as well as San Francisco. I enjoy listening to all kinds of music, from Pop, to Jazz, Chillout-Lounge to Progressive Metal. Dark, fizzy drinks make me break out. When I was a kid I used to jump off of fences and try to fly, but now I just jump out of planes. I’m the one you’ll hear laughing out loud at the stupid jokes no one else gets at the movie theater.

I’ve released 3 full-length original albums (LET THE CANDLE BURN’, RANDOM THOUGHTS and the latest – ‘THE RELATIONSHIP ODYSSEY), a limited edition Christmas album (A COOL CHRISTMAS) and a bunch of singles you’ve probably heard in a movie or TV show somewhere. I’m very loyal to people I love. I was offered a deal by a major label to ‘battle’ Alicia Keys. I’m glad I didn’t. I try to live 9 lives simultaneously. I have the worst potty mouth you could ever imagine! I know flowers speak to us. I learned a lot about patience while building my studio (Studio 302) where my latest album was recorded. I have an eBay addiction and a fetish for exotic pens and markers.

Lilla D'mone

I love singing, writing, producing, jammin, playing piano and guitar, freestyling, dancing, roller skating, cooking, painting, swimming, running, the beach, spending time with my family, friends and loved ones, nature, philosophy, history, looking at the stars, traveling, connecting, and stayin up all night in the studio. My mission is to love, unite, spread consciousness, express my self and soul and uplift people with and through music. I'm constantly learning and evolving and am grateful for every person and opportunity that life brings my way. Everyday is a chance to grow!

I love all roots music–

Clarissa Cupero

Raised in Warwick, New York, about 65 miles north of New York City, 19 year old Cupéro has been singing since she was four years old.

She started piano lessons at nine and guitar at sixteen, which for her, has been the key to unlock everything.

“Since picking up the guitar, everything has fallen into place – it was the right instrument for me to begin writing songs on, and image-wise, I love it. When I’m playing guitar – that’s the essence of who I am.”

Influenced by modern artists and a few classic rock artists, her biggest praise is reserved for the Columbian rock artist Juanes, a winner of seventeen Latin Grammys and who has sold over ten million albums.

Poetry

Vernon Davis Jr.

Vernon J. Davis Jr. has been writing poetry since the early seventies. He was first inspired by Langston Hughes's poem "Impasse", which started his journey and adventure into the world of poetry and the spoken word. Vernon's very first published poem,"Beautiful Black Woman"(the basis for his poetry book) came out in 1978 in a magazine called Black Forum. More poetry followed in other magazines like SoulWord and Dawn, a magazine supplement to the Los Angeles Sentinel, an African-American newspaper. Mr. Davis has also taught Creative Writing and recited his poetry in talent shows, Church gatherings and open-mike forums. He is still inspired by and in awe of Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni and Maya Angelou. His Idols. His creative collection of Love poems,"Love,is, the Beautiful Black Woman" is his 1st book. Vernon's 2nd book of poetry--"The Emosewa Woman"--was released Feb. 14th, 2010. He is currently working on his 3rd Book of Poetry, Tenatively Titled, "Her, She, Woman"(Her, She--Hershey(Chocolate) Woman).

WOMAN by Vernon J Davis Jr
 
WOMAN, Your Beauty exudes from Your Body
And I can taste Your Essence,
As Your Mind caresses those around You. ... Peaceful Serenity You possess,
An inner calm that puts hearts to rest,
A trembling sensation flowing through the air
Wherever You may be.WOMAN, You are the Sun shining rays of Love.
You are the Breeze that soothes painful memories.
You are a Stunning Angel, fallen from the sky,
And lightning bows at Your Path
While thunder rolls at Your Command.
You are a Goddess, who offers the wine of
Happiness
And receives eyes of worship.
You are a Sparkling Waterfall seen from afar,
That Lights up the top of the world.
Your Beauty fulfills its needs and Your
Mind does as it please.WOMAN, You are Gorgeous,
And beyond my words, mind, and soul,
I have never met anyone like You.
And I never will!

I am excited and blessed to introduce my sweetheart, Richard-Alan as our network's new host. He is not only a talented musician but his knowledge and insight are a major asset to our multicultural artistic family. I am looking forward to our journey together... ~ Tania-Maria

"Humans are imperfect. That's one of the reasons that classical and jazz are in trouble. We're on the quest for the perfect performance and every note has to be right. Man, every note is not right in life." ~Branford Marsalis
 
The perfection of creation is in the artistic comprehension of complex ideas. The beauty of creation is in the multitude of ways we communicate love. However, through the ...filter of human popular culture, our perception of art can morph into the sterile and superfluous, and our concept of love can morph into the selfish and salacious.
 
The perfection and beauty of God's creation is inherent within the dimensions and details in which he communicates his love for us, and within the incalculable opportunities for us to communicate our love for others - without glorifying ourselves in the process.
 
I give thanks to God for those people who choose to color the world with love; giving us a better view of God's love for us by sharing his love for them through their unique talents and gifts!

I also thank God for the vision he placed in Tania-Maria to honor his creative work in all of us! ~ Richard-Alan
