Lisa Banton

Born in Toronto Canada, this singer/songwriter is setting the stage to make waves in the R&B world.She began writing at the tender age of 10 and started carrying a pen and paper with her everywhere. By doing so, she honed her skills to write about not only her life but what went on around her and it's been a testament to why her lyrics are so genuine.In an industry where the soul and conviction seems to be lost, Lisa is an artist that helps you believe that there's still hope. Her approach is most often compared to RNB greats such as Mary J Blige and Faith Evans. Lisa is a product of what music used to be and what is needed in the present. Her music often hits the heart of her listeners and when asked about her life in music her response was quite refreshing "It's been what I use to express what I'm feeling; whether it's something I wrote myself or something I've heard. There's a song for every moment and every feeling. Knowing and believing that helps me make music that any, if not everybody can relate to at one time or another".A lot of her local and national recognition has been due to her meaningful songs over more commercially known Hip-Hop instrumentals. On "How Many", a song about unappreciated love, she explains how it feels to give it all and get nothing in return, done over Talib Kweli's "The Blast". On "Got One" Lisa introduces herself to the world and elusively defends her individuality on a Jay- Z inspired track entitled "Lost Ones". Regardless of the topic, you can always tell she is singing from the heart.With a her newest release "Mirror Mirror Vol.2", collaborations with artists locally and abroad as well as upcoming show performances, she seems to be busy and primed for a successful career. Lisa Banton is ready for the future.

Harlem The Artist

Harlem the Artist started his musical journey at the young age of 13 with the support of his father.  Over time he's morphed into an impeccable singer and songwriter.  Harlem has independently released three underground solo CD's including; "I'm A Singer", "The Life" and "Situations" which share the sound of R&B mixed with Hip Hop and urban influences.  Harlem's latest single called "Timeless" further shows his vocal and songwriting maturity.  He literally does not rest until he's captured innovation by means of beautiful lyrics and melodies.
Harlem has opened for Tank, Joe, Jaged Edge, Donnell Jones and a host of other signed and unsigned artist.  Harlem has received national exposure after winning and appearing on BET's 106 and Park "Wild-Out_Wednesdays".  Harlem was also recognized as the "Best Male R&B Artist" during the 5th annual Underground Music Awards (UMA) held at BB Kings in New York City.  In addition, he was the 1st artist featured in VIBE magazine's Unsigned Artist Series and named "R&B Artist of the Year".
Harlem the Artist; a man so passionate about music that his very purpose for living resolves around it.  His committment to his music not only demonstrates who he is as an artist, but who he is as a man.  Despite working tirelessly and breaking many nights in recording studios, he still makes the time to be a responsible brother to his siblings, a loving son to his parents and a helping hand to his friends. 
Harlem is the epitome of a truly great musician in the making.  When asked why he makes music, his response is "I don't really feel I have a choice in making music, it's in my DNA...something I couldn't shake if I wanted to.  i just hope people can relate and appreciate my music".
