MEET STEVE LOUIS.

 

Steve is a British Singer Songwriter/Producer from London based in NYC. He started making music at the age of 13 as a rapper and producer and gave Queen Elizabeth II his first CD when he was 15. After living in the US for 4 years he finally released his first solo artist EP worldwide last year and was just recently verified by Spotify and Shazam. Check out his music on Bandcamp and/or Soundcloud.

For Steve, writing music is like painting a picture. “I draw inspiration from the people around me, my own life experiences, nature, and art. The best thing about being an artist is having the ability to tell a personal story and then to share it with an audience.” His love and passion for music drives him to keep creating and when he sees the reaction from his audience, it propels him even further to keep sharing his music.

Steve is currently writing his second EP and also runs a popular weekly vlog on his YouTube channel

“In 5 years I’d like to be well-known and established as an artist, producer, singer so that I can tour successfully and travel to different countries. I want to share my music to empower and inspire people.” 

“Ultimately I want to be able to look back at my life and be content without regrets. Being in love, surrounded by love, happiness, and staying healthy while making music and having new experiences in life. These are my highest aspirations.”

Yaniza Doré is a 25-year-old singer-songwriter born and raised in Manhattan, who hummed along to music before she could speak. She found her songwriting niche in soft acoustic music influenced in part by Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Sara Bareilles, and Colbie Caillat. Since opening her main YouTube channel in 2011, she’s gained thousands of subscribers and over 500,000 views. “I’m super proud of the weekly uploads I’ve been doing since 2013, and the feedback I get from my subscribers drives me to keep sharing! Sometimes I get YouTube comments or Instagram comments from young musicians telling me that I’m the reason they decided to sing. Someone once told me that they live for my covers! Like! Wow! How could I possibly stop creating then?!”

Check out her most viewed original music video: 

“My absolute favorite part about being a singer-songwriter is performing. Performing feels the most rewarding. I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can use music to heal or teach, rather than just entertain so I especially like volunteering at schools and hospitals where I get to sing to the patients and students. It feels mutually beneficial because I enjoy what I’m doing and they love getting a musical treat.”

Her most recent release in 2016, "Secrets," is a 10-track original album filled with personal experiences. Check out her website where you can download her music and also find out where she’ll be performing next!

"When I think about where I'd like to be in 5 years, of course I’d love to have steady income without having to give up music. But most importantly, I want to be happy. So whether this means finding a performance job that I can live off of, or finding a non-music job that gives me flexibility to create, I’ll be happy."

MEET JERRY. FOUNDER OF "GOLD FINGER"

Hi, my name is Jerry, but most know me as kingparkergold.  I started my clothing line "Gold Finger" in 2015 with my friends and was inspired by my best friend Kaydon. The brand represents spreading positivity through gold and changing people's outlook on life, clothes, and culture; to stand out, but be golden while doing it.

Behind every design, there is a story to tell. Our designs are inspired by the world and people around us and just waking up in the morning knowing that god blessed us with another day to create. We want our designs to reflect our messages and to share them with our consumers and ultimately with the world.

Nothing feels better than seeing your ideas/designs come to life and also seeing your brand grow. We recently did three pop up shows and sold out all our merchandise at two of them and also put together a fashion show, which my girlfriend Ashley directed. Our children’s line is also something we are extremely proud of, which was launched in April. Seeing people post and share about us and having brands like Nike sponsor our running events truly makes me feel special inside. This kind of support makes me even tear up sometimes because never in my life would I have imagined people believing in our vision of “Goldfinger.” 

I hope to be able to make a living off of my brand and keep building it with my girlfriend and team. It’s my dream to then pass on the brand to my future kids and continue to create designs that we all believe in. I’m so grateful for all the people who have helped me get to where I am and also to the community where I grew up. I wish to give back by doing work shops on how to create a brand, or even by building parks! I believe that any idea is the best idea and that if you believe in your idea, then people will believe it too.
