Jazmyn Alexis

Jazmyn Alexis is an RnB singer/songwriter originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. Jazmyn moved to Chicago in 2012 to pursue both higher education and her music career. Throughout her college career Jazmyn experimented with choirs, bands and different sounds which motivates her appreciation for all styles of music, which she incorporates in her songwriting process.  Jazmyn’s first love is 90s and early 2000s RnB. Her first debut project CHEESECAKE was release July 17, 2017 which goes through a storyline of different emotions and situations within her previous relationship. She named her project CHEESECAKE because it was one of the sweeter things in life… and it’s also a treat that her Ex disliked (Yes!, Jazmyn is low key petty). Although Jazmyn is very unique, she is admired for her natural abilities to really captivate her audience with both her crisp sound and her lyrical expression. Jazmyn’s ultimate goal is to “reach the masses and sell out hella shows!”

Kay K Rosemond
 
Born in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn in the late seventies Lyonel “Kay-Kay” Rosemond was exposed at an early age to a cultural melting pot that would eventually shape his view of life. During this period, Lyonel was a virtual sponge in the community, never afraid to speak to a stranger or take an unconventional path to achieve his goals. Although he does not recall every detail of his early upbringing, he fondly remembers being enamored with the soul singers of the 70’s, which included Marvin Gaye, Al Green and Otis Redding. However, he would soon become entrenched in the hip-hop scene that was beginning to take over during his adolescence. At the time, little did he know that these musical influences would have a great deal to do with the career he ultimately chose as an A&R with Motown/Universal Music Group.
During his early years, Lyonel did not expect to pursue a career in music, but rather was more interested in expressing his natural talent and love as an artist. While other kids were munching snacks while watching the Sunday morning cartoons, Lyonel would find himself drawing many of the characters as a way to perfect his craft. At an early age he decided that he would pursue a career as an artist for his favorite comic book company, Marvel Comics. Lyonel soon enrolled in a school for cartoon illustration and shortly after began receiving requests from friends who needed logos for the companies many of them hoped to form. In 1994, however Lyonel began to see his career path change course after he was contacted by his Uncle Jimmy Henchman Rosemond who was already well known in music industry circles, and was about to start his own management company. Lyonel remembers being excited about his new opportunity, but feeling that his knowledge of the music industry was limited to what he saw on TV, not the behind the scenes work that many took for granted.
Once entering the music industry Lyonel realized that art was not his only talent, as he quickly adapted to the scene and learned what something he feels very few comprehend – most of the artists we love and follow often don’t live the life they portray. It was at this time that Lyonel realized that the music business was in fact business first, and he began to actively increase his contacts by making a conscious attempt to mingle with those that would become his peers. His hard work paid off, when in Kedar he was offered a job to work in the A&R department at the historic record label Motown. Since joining the Motown family Lyonel has worked with a bevy of artists including Erykah Badu, Chico DeBarge, Lil’ Wayne, The Temptations and R&B crooner Joe. He feels that his work with Badu was the most special because of the authentic approach she took to developing her music, never rushing to comfplete a song or forcing a concept – “I learned so much from working with Erykah” says Rosemond. 
Work however, is not the only important thing in Lyonel’s life, as he is deeply spiritual and involved.

Pierre Evans

Pierre Evans is an author, speaker and trainer. He is making a big impact on the youth with his unique approach and delivery of real life issues. With a significant social media presence, his message is traveling fast and there is no sign of slowing. Due to his lack of education, and his unwillingness to follow rules, many counted him out. For Pierre, it was just one more thing for him to overcome. He learned that being the under dog is a huge advantage. It allowed him to study the top. Using his personal experiences, he is able to pass on the tools that continue to help him reach new levels of success. As a high school drop-out , Pierre, to many, is not the smartest, but his determination and
hustle is hard to argue. After seventeen years he went back to get his GED and now he’s taking the country by storm. He has been privileged to be mentored by one of the greatest motivational speakers in the world, Eric Thomas of Eric Thomas and Associates, LLC and the president of the company, CJ Quinney. As CEO of his consulting firm, Re-Empower, LLC. Pierre is expanding his reach from schools and youth programs in Arizona all the way to the east coast.
