WHO: Lion Pack Music Group and Lynn Allen Jeter & Associates are presenting the second Holiday Indie Artist Virtual Showcase. The showcase will be hosted by singer/songwriter Rosa Veleno and will feature indie artists Agyakomah Mensah, Matthew Sutton, Lacree, and Gio & Angeles and will feature special guest performances by Joshua Ledet and Candace Woodson.
Agyakomah Mensah is an artist-singer-songwriter that utilizes her cultural background and unique upbringing as a young first-generation Ghanaian woman to create music that reflects her life. Her sound, which she categorizes as Afrofusion, not only represents her West African and R&B/Soul blend but the outcome of a fusion of different lifestyles, languages, experiences, and generational stories that are highlighted in her artistry. She was recently chosen to be a Bakanal de Afrique 2020 Fellow and Core Artist where she would create music, perform and showcase her work alongside multidisciplinary artists across the African diaspora. Agyakomah aims to start 2021 with a bang with the release of her first single off her debut EP.
Matthew Sutton was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles and is a soulful, conscious indie singer who spreads love and positivity through his music. He is looking to change the world with one lyric at a time. When he is not producing, writing poetry, or emerging himself in music, he is barbering celebrities. A true artist and lover of life. Vegan, spiritual and a healer. Welcome to Matthew Sutton Music.
Rising vocalist Lacree is rapidly proving to the masses what raw talent and perseverance mean towards longevity as an artist. Hailing from Virginia Beach, she proves that there’s got to be ‘something in the water’ as she shares her hometown with legends Missy Elliot and Pharrell Williams. Her sound is as colorful and original as these other greats have proven to be. Her rich, vocal tone has been compared to the likes of Toni Braxton and Erykah Badu. After releasing her first project, “Searching for Nirvana“, she garnered the attention of ASAP Ferg and worked well with them until she left Virginia to explore Los Angeles.
O/B/A is a pop/hip hop recording artist. Writing songs from start to finish at the age of 9, O/B/A is no stranger to making music. His high energy performance style and explosive delivery is contagious! From the Apollo Theater in Harlem to corporate performances to House of Blues shows, he entertains all. O/B/A has worked with notable mainstream artists like Jojo, Brandy, and Queen Latifah. His unique style is a breath of fresh air to the pop/hip hop world.
Gio & Angeles is an R&B/Soul group from Denver, Colorado. Every decade has a duet group reminiscent of Marvin & Tammy, Sonny & Cher, Stevie & Tom, or Jordan Sparks & Chris Brown that creates the right chemistry for collaborative hits. Newcomers, Gio & Angeles add their names and new single ‘Forever’ to the millennial generation of classic duos.
Candace Woodson answers the call for those who love soulful r&b and talented unfiltered vocals. Born in Paducah, KY, she began singing at the age of five with her older sisters in a gospel group called the Parks Sisters. Although her roots are in gospel, after high school Candace began to explore other avenues in the music industry. She is the first graduate of the Commercial Music Program at Tennessee State University in Nashville and is a professional recording artist with a background in Gospel, R&B, Jazz, and Pop.
