Yellow Alex
Yellow Alex
Yellow Alex & The Feelings fuse Motown bass lines, psychedelic guitars, and ambient texture to create strange new flavors of classic soul and new age pop. Choreographed live performances take cues from 60's R&B, while yellow spins and coos a pop falsetto. Emotionally charged. Visually arresting. Short enough to fit on a 45.

The son of a Jamaican father and Polish mother, Yellow Alex's influences ar...e eclectic and disparate: the Jimi Hendrix experience, John Frusciante, Brian Eno, Curtis Mayfield, Prince, Gyorgy Ligeti, Nile Rodgers, Madonna, and et cetera.

A native Angelino, Yellow Alex returned to LA in 2007 after leaving Trick & the Heartstrings, a NY punk-funk trio. He developed a new style, which led to the formation of a septet, The Feelings. Longtime friend Daniel Brummel (formerly of Ozma) joined first on bass, and within a few months, included Sergio Flores (Symphonic Circles), Kim Haden (Light FM), Leonard Nimms (Ballerina Black), Brandon Scott (you may recognize him from "Grey's Anatomy" and Toyota commercials) and BRIT (aka "B/HIVE", event promoter for LA art events). Yellow Alex also spends time working as a producer and co-writer for several acts based in LA.
Jhameel
Jhameel
Jhameel was once set on the path to officer-ship in the United States Army. Although his linguistic skills in Arabic, Spanish, Korean, and Russian would have been highly rewarded in the military, Jhameel quit the program before signing an irrevocable contract due to personal beliefs about U.S. presence in the Middle East. He then earned a degree in Arabic from UC Berkeley within just two years, graduating summa cum laude. Immediately after, he began his career in music.

Jhameel creates explosively funky music comprised of soul-stirring guitar, immersive synthesizers, triumphant brass, and athletic, melodic vocals inspired equally by Prince and Michael Jackson. He plays each and every instrument on his records himself, creating catchy melodies that settle easily into your mind with human lyrical themes that continue to challenge the heart. Jhameel's skills extend to the mixing board too, as he produces his own music.

Jhameel's second album, The Human Condition propelled "Bernal Heights" and "The Human Condition" to the top of the Hype Machine Popular Charts. He followed up with the Dance EP, which featured the furiously energetic "Shut Up", a track that not only took over the Hype Machine charts once more, but became Forever 21's flagship song for the fall of 2011. In the winter of 2011, Jhameel presented his five song WAVES series, in which he released a new single every Tuesday for five weeks. The title track "Waves", reached #2 on both Hype Machine and We Are Hunted, while "Collision" was used in a national advertisement for Verizon's Droid RAZR. Jhameel showed true versatility with "White Lie", a hip-hop inspired pop song which reached #10 on Hype Machine.

"Jhameel's second LP, The Human Condition, is an album of classically-influenced pop that struggles gracefully with the big issues of our time. It's so graceful that it could put him in the running to be the voice of his generation." --MTV
