Chill Moody cemented his satus as one of the top lyricists & performers to hit Philadelphia in years when he won “Best Rapper” in Philadelphia Magazine’s annual Best of Philly issue. Known for his dynamic live performances, Moody has performed on all the areas’ best stages, including Wawa Welcome America, the Roots Picnic, the Kimmel Center, The Fillmore & he has had multiple sold-out shows at the TLA, The Trocadero and Hard Rock Café. Moody was rightfully named Philadelphia’s official Music Ambassadors due to his tireless efforts to "put the city on" as well as his local & national accomplishments over the years: radio play, music videos on MTV Jams, two albums that debuted on the iTunes Top 100 hip-hop charts, & performances at A3C Hip-Hop Conference (2013; 2015), in Los Angeles during Grammy Week (2014; 2015; 2016) and South by Southwest (SXSW) (2014; 2015; 2016).
Inspired by the likes of Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Etta James, singer/songwriter, Lauriana Mae melds soulful jazz vocals with contemporary pop, R&B and hip hop music.
Mae collaborated with producer Kwamè (Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige) on her 3 song 'Love Mae' EP, which features lyrics and melodies penned by the singer herself. It kicks off with her anthem “Money Mae”- the singer’s moniker, a shiny, horn-laden throwback banger that captures flapper-era bliss. Also included is the melancholic ballad “Love”, a reflective conversation between Mae and the emotion itself, and the punchy, percussive track "Like A Drum (Beat It)".
Lauriana began singing at home inspired by her mom who spotted her talent at an early age. She joined the church choir, which gave her the confidence to audition for a performing arts high school where she was accepted at a young age, and majored in vocal music. Eventually, Lauriana began performing at local talent shows, auditioning for various gigs, and working with different groups. The experience gave her the confidence needed to enter the studio to record songs of her own, and to establish herself as a solo artist. With her backing band "The Pains", comprised of a band of friends that stood by her along the way, Lauriana is gearing up to break the mold of popular music. She is reinventing the essence of great soul music from the past and present and bringing it to fans in a way that is distinctly Mae.
Shawn Smith from Philadelphia, formerly known s Young Savage.
Sexy, zany, sensitive, and rebellious, with an earthy baby doll voice possessing tinges of
Soul and Pop. That’s Philadelphia-based, singer-songwriter-performance artist PATTY CRASH. And while Hip-Hop popped her cherry, her high-octane music has evolved into an abstract art, not to be categorized by one genre.
Born in Keflavik, Iceland, the ethereal singer made her journey across the pond in the early ‘90s. In America, PATTY CRASH formerly know as “PATTY CAKE” embraced a different, weird persona, and thanks to a chance encounter at age 19 at a Roots concert in Baltimore, she set off on a course that continues to open doors. In Philadelphia, she met famed Roots manager and producer, the late Richard Nichols, who took PATTY CRASH under his wing and gave her a chance to develop as a writer/artist and person. Richard Nichols and The Roots became one of her strongest allies in years to come.
The relationship formed like Voltron, finding PATTY CRASH featured on The Roots Grammy-nominated album, How I Got Over, “Never” The single from The Roots’ 2014 album “And Then You Shoot Your Cousin”, Tyga’s song “Diamond Life”, and most resently PATTY Assisted Artist Logic on Multiple songs of his Debut Album “Under Pressure” which was just certified gold, just to name a few.
Fall 2017 finds PATTY CRASH excited to release what is her first actual solo release “Pretty Ugly”.
