Born and raised in Miami Florida, Keilah Rose has developed a passion to perform on any and every stage she can find since October 2010. Keilah Rose started off performing as a Spoken Word Artist at Open Mics such as Stone Groove, Literary Cafe, & Speak Fridays. Host of Miami's Most Diverse Open Mic Robert Lee saw her potential and added her to the Speak Family as a House Poet. Keilah Rose performed nothing but poetry for a year to get rid of her stage fright. Spoken Word came easy to Keilah Rose because of her background in acting. Acting was her first step into performing arts. The more and more Keilah Rose performed she eventually combined poetry with song. Chasing after the heart of her audience, Keilah Rose is a hopeless romantic. Her style of music is a fusion of jazz, indie, and pop. As a single mother she has an inevitable desire to make it to the big screens. When Keilah Rose isn't performing she's auditioning for major singing competitions such as Americas Got Talent, The Voice, The X-factor, and more. After 3 years of perfecting and reinventing herself as an artist Keilah Rose made it to The World Famous Apollo Theater and will be performing April 17, 2013. In the meanwhile, she will be waiting with high hopes for a call back from Americas Got Talent and writing music for her upcoming project I Am Wonderland.
Promising to just "simply progress", Phresh James brings a new level of smooth to South Florida music. Born and raised in Miami, Phresh is simply an old soul. His music and style just show a sign of maturity and willingness to keep growing. And believe it or not, artists like Phresh James just show us that its okay to be a rapper out of Miami and not have a southern drawl over southern-infused beats.
25 year old, North Miami native Prez P first emerged onto the underground rap scene in Miami with his group Da Camp in 2011 with their mixtape: 7 Day Weekend: Campin Out In A RV followed by 7 Day Weekend: Bumpin olDCool, Da Campilation and their biggest album thus far VII Day Vacay which was voted 2012 mixtape of the year by the Miami blog the305.com. Now as Prez steps away from the group to do some solo work he presents DreamSucceeDie, a body of work with production from various Miami producers like Numonics, Mr. Manuvers, Benny B and features from his Miami peers Phresh James, J Nics, RansomNote and more.
Best kept secrets don't remain under wraps for long, especially if that hidden gem is Gaby Duran. With a voice as sultry as it is powerful and influences spanning a vast musical spectrum, Duran has captured audiences from all walks of life. The Manhattan-born, Miami-raised singer/songwriter began to chisel her craft in performing arts schools at an early age, further continuing her studies at Berklee College of Music. Since then she has been featured on records with Dead Prez, Yung Skeeter, & Miami Beat Wave and has opened up for acts like Sam Sparro, Questlove, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, & Shabazz Palaces. Aside from working with many up and coming artists in Miami's music scene, Gaby Duran is also part of production crew, Grassman. The songstress is currently working on her much anticipated first EP.
