Hometown: Jacksonville, FL
School: Florida State University
What made you want to pursue a career in music?
After listening to Lee Morgan for the first time, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in music
Hometown: West Palm Beach, Florida
School: University of Miami
Where do you see yourself as an artist in 10 years?
I hope to be touring and performing music that inspires me.


Hometown: Berkeley, CA
School: UCLA
What’s your favorite era of music and why?

I don’t think era is really the best defining factor of music, I think there are people that have been ahead of their time all eras, and people who stick strongly to tradition in every era. That being said recently, I like artists that try to break down some perceived barriers in music. The 1970’s would be a time in history where a lot of people were doing this, as is the current era.
