Meet our Artists

Red Words – In 2012, Paul Ammendola and Mark Phillips teamed up with Michael Perrone and John Foote. As they delivered their eclectic blend of soul-baring vocals, crunching rock-n-roll guitars, and tasteful grooves, the audience realized that they had experienced something very special. After other well-received events, Jaime Moore was added, and their repertoire quickly grew, as did their popularity. Red Words released their highly anticipated self-titled CD in October 2014, exemplifying their original sound of an effective hybrid of edgy rock, R&B, pop, gospel and soul. This rock band has a message: God Loves You, no matter where you are or what you’ve done. “Our music is about finding joy and hope in a dark world,” says Ammendola.
Nubian Gents thumb The Nubian Gents & Feminine Fire was founded in 1994, when Queens-based educator Lamont O’Neil became acutely aware of the crisis confronting teenage men, and decided to introduce these young men to a fraternity-style step group to give them positive and productive affiliation. Feminine Fire, the sister step team, began in 2002 to like the Nubian Gents give these young people a greater purpose, changing their lives, and enabling them to encourage change in the lives of others and impacting the world. Today, the both groups travel together worldwide, performing in schools, churches, community organizations and prisons.
Isaiah Jamel Conversational. Inspiring. Honest. Soulful. Universally appealing. Truly original. New York-based gospel-soul singer-songwriter Isaiah Jamel’s music is an uplifting force in a chaotic and challenging world. In 2012, he wrote and released his first album “Ready To Win” with his group ANuPeople. Isaiah is set to release his sophomore EP, “Transparency Part 1”, where he reaches deep into his portrayals of life’s experiences, emotional ups and downs and vulnerabilities. “Transparency Part 1” has the goal of starting a movement of transparent thinking, promoting honestly about one’s successes and failures in life and discovering the divine insight that can be gained from examining both.
