AOE
AOE
AOE (Ambassadors of Earth) is a left-field r&b/pop duo consisting of singer/multi-instrumentalist Phil Beaudreau and veteran hip-hop producer Dawaun Parker (Jay-Z, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar). The duo's songs are dreamy and experimental, yet contain fairly direct sentiments of loneliness and longing, and at times they sound like a blend of Kid A-era Radiohead and the Weeknd. The duo began uploading AOE songs to SoundCloud in 2013. Over the next few years, they had uploaded a handful of originals as well as covers of the Beach Boys and Jhené Aiko. After signing to Def Jam, AOE released debut single "I'm Right This Time" in early 2017. The track was accompanied by an intense, colorful animated music video that was created by Beaudreau over the course of two years. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
Common Souls
Common Souls met when vocalist Ryan overheard producer Nick extolling the virtues of Pokemon #74, Geodude, to his peers in UCLA's music department. Ryan immediately felt that there was a connection to be made--one deeper than he might be able to put into words. They soon began going to Pokemon trading card meetups in Anaheim together, with the long car rides soundtracked with artists like Corey Feldman, James Blake and The Avalanches. It was here that they discovered that they shared interests not only in Geodude but in music as well. They began making music together shortly afterward and haven't stopped since.

Jennah Bell
Jennah Bell is an Oakland-grown singer/songwriter whose ravenous musical curiosities inspired her own creative wonderland; her quirky songwriting and undefinable genre is a direct product of her proud Bay Area roots. As the architect of all aspects of her musical endeavours, Jennah pulls from a colorful palette of Folk, Soul, R&B, Hip‐Hop, and Bluegrass.

Jennah was selected by the Grammy Foundation to participate in the summer program under the tutelage of Jimmy Jam, Paul Williams, and David Foster, all of whom embraced her unorthodox writing style. This experience encouraged Jennah to further her studies at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, where she immersed herself in a community of artists, and found much inspiration in her peers and professors. Included in her supporters is the legendary Paul Simon who extended his expertise and mentorship to the burgeoning artist.

In 2011, Jennah released her first self-produced EP, the experimental “Early Bird,” and set out for New York City where, she’s been warmly welcomed into NYC’s renowned music scene. Since moving to New York, she has performed at The 2012 BET Awards as a independent artist, CMJ’s Music Marathon, SXSW Music Festival, Blue Note Jazz Festival, the main stage of The Roots Picnic, and the prestigious 2013 North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, where she received a standing ovation. She released a 3‐piece acoustic set “Live at Mother,” EP December of 2012 which was profiled on Okayplayer.com. She has shared the stage with artist such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Cody Chesnutt, Gregory Porter, Alice Smith, KING, and Eric Benet. Bell is currently working on her debut studio album titled, “Anatomy” with contributions from Grammy winning mix engineer and producer, Russell Elevado, Neal Pogue -- and multi‐Grammy winning songwriter, musician and multi‐platinum producer James Poyser.

Haunting as the blues, gritty as rap verse, and enchanting as only folk can be, Jennah Bell is the sum of music’s best parts.
