Curmiah Lisette is a Saint Lucia-born, London-raised poet, performer and educator. She is a double recipient of Saint Lucia's Outstanding Youth in Literary and Performing Arts Awards and a former student on the MA Creative Writing and Education programme at Goldsmiths University. Curmiah's multi-disciplinary creative talents have seen her perform as a dancer on numerous cultural stages in Trinidad, Europe, the US and Nigeria as part of her creative collective, 'Make Life Magnificent'. Curmiah has had her poetic short films screened in film festivals across Europe, the US and the Caribbean. Much of her work merges art forms to draw on giving a voice to the Caribbean and British-Caribbean black female narrative. Her debut collection of poems and short stories, Chronicles of a Caribbean Bad Gyal inna London, is set for official release in Jan 2020.

The most enduring love stories often repeat themselves during different times, at different places, and in different people.

As Estelle built the framework for her fifth full-length and first album for the newly minted partnership between her own Established 1980 label and VP Records, Lover’s Rock, the multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning UK singer, songwriter, actress, and humanitarian realized a pattern. Her own relationship experiences bore a subtle resemblance to those of her Senegalese mother and Grenadian father who “got together, had children, broke up, found each other again twenty years later, and happily married a decade after.”

Lover’s Rock wouldn’t just be a reprise of this love story though. By the same token, the music from her formative years reappeared in the album’s DNA as she rooted the record in the reggae and Afrobeat sounds of her childhood. She can vividly recall classics from Dennis Brown, Freddie McGregor, Pépé Kallé, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, and more resounding in the house. Throughout her career, she carried a passion for these styles, bumping Vybz Kartel on the tour bus and sound tracking dinner parties at her Brooklyn pad with West Indies favorites.

As the vision for the music took shape, she tapped the talents of producers such as “Come Over” collaborator Supa Dups—who contributed four songs—Dre Harris, Reefa, and more to bring a cohesive vision to life.

Lover’s Rock represents a full circle moment for Estelle. On the heels of her acclaimed 2004 debut, The 18th Day, she soared to international prominence on 2008’s Shine. The lead single, “American Boy” featuring Kanye West, won a 2009 GRAMMY® in the category of “Best Rap Sung Collaboration” and achieved an RIAA double-platinum certification. She released the follow-up All of Me in 2012, and the single, “Thank You”, received a GRAMMY® nomination for “Best R&B Performance.” 2015’s True Romance yielded the smash “Conqueror.” Guest starring in a popular episode of Empire in Season One, she joined star Jussie Smollett for a duet of the tune. It stood out as “one of the show’s highest-charting songs” and fueled the Original Soundtrack to a #1 bow on the Billboard Top 200. Beyond Empire, she has cameoed in films such as Girls Trip and voiced lead character Garnet on Cartoon Network’s smash Steven Universe since 2013.  Estelle has also launched her own online boutique named Elle Vie.

Simultaneously, she launched the All of Me foundation. The charity grants college scholarships and opportunities abroad to youth. Among many highlights, it sponsored a trip to Senegal for Los Angeles students who had never ventured outside of the city prior.

In the end, Lover’s Rock communicates a narrative that’s as universal as it is personal for Estelle as well as a love story for the ages.

“I want people to walk away with a feeling that love is possible,” she leaves off. “That’s why I’m sharing all of this. Hopefully, we all get that feeling.”

Ginuwine was one of R&B’s preeminent love men during the ’90s heyday of hip-hop soul. Initially teamed with Timbaland, the most innovative producer of the late ’90s, Ginuwine’s sultry, seductive crooning earned him a substantial female following and made him a regular presence on the R&B charts, even after the futuristic production he favored was eclipsed by the more organic, retro-leaning neo-soul movement.

Ginuwine was born in Washington, D.C., on October 15, 1975, with the unlikely name of Elgin Baylor Lumpkin (after D.C.-born Basketball Hall of Famer Elgin Baylor). As a youngster, Lumpkin’s interest in music was ignited by Prince and Michael Jackson, especially the latter’s legendary moonwalking performance on the Motown 25th anniversary special. At the mere age of 12, he began performing at parties and bars with the local hip-hop group the Finesse Five. He later worked as a Michael Jackson impressionist and sang with another local outfit, Physical Wonder; in the meantime, he earned a paralegal degree from a local community college, in case music didn’t work out. In 1996, he adopted the name Ginuwine and was discovered by Jodeci. In New York, he met up with young producer Timbaland and cut the track “Pony,” whose slow, halting groove and impassioned vocals helped Ginuwine land a deal with Sony’s 550 Music imprint.

With the strikingly inventive Timbaland behind the boards, Ginuwine cut his debut album, Ginuwine…The Bachelor, and released it later in 1996. “Pony” became a number one R&B smash, also reaching number six on the pop charts, and the album became an eventual double-platinum hit. It spun off several more R&B hits over the next year, including “Tell Me Do U Wanna,” “I’ll Do Anything/I’m Sorry,” “Holler,” and “Only When Ur Lonely”; it also featured an homage to one of Ginuwine’s main influences in the cover of Prince’s “When Doves Cry.” In the wake of the album’s success, demand for Timbaland’s production services exploded, and Ginuwine became a bona fide sex symbol. He toured heavily in support of The Bachelor, and kept his name in the public eye in 1998 with his hit “Same Ol’ G,” which was featured on the soundtrack to Eddie Murphy’s Dr. Doolittle. Late that year, he also made his acting debut on an episode of the CBS series Martial Law.

Ginuwine returned with his second album, 100% Ginuwine, in early 1999. Again produced by Timbaland, it entered the pop charts at number five, gave rise to another significant crossover hit in “So Anxious,” and went platinum. “What’s So Different?” and “None of Ur Friends Business” were also successful on R&B radio, and there was another cover of a Ginuwine hero, this time Michael Jackson’s “She’s Out of My Life.” He followed it in the spring of 2001 with The Life, despite having to endure the deaths of his father (who committed suicide) and mother (a victim of cancer) within the same year. It was his first album helmed by producers not named Timbaland. Nonetheless, it was another success, debuting at number three on the charts and once again going platinum. Moreover, the ballad “Differences” — the second single released from the album, after “There It Is” — became Ginuwine’s biggest pop hit yet, climbing to number four later that year.

In 2002, Ginuwine made his feature film debut in the gender-bending basketball comedy Juwanna Mann, playing (what else?) a slick R&B singer. That summer, Ginuwine returned to the Top Ten courtesy of his duet with P. Diddy on “I Need a Girl, Pt. 2.” Though he didn’t achieve as much success on the singles charts, both The Senior (2003) and Back II da Basics (2005) reached the Top Five of the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The singer then switched from the Sony family to a distribution deal with Warner Bros. A Man’s Thoughts was released in 2009, topped the R&B albums chart, and featured a reunion with Timbaland on “Get Involved.” The January 2011 single “Batteries” — a club track on which he was joined by Trina — preceded his seventh album, Elgin. He then linked up with Tank and Tyrese for Three Kings, released in 2013 under the name TGT.

With a remarkable career spanning over 3 decades  and with record sales in excess of over 30 million albums, LEEE JOHN and his group IMAGINATION released and successfully had so many amazing classic hits singles and platinum, gold and silver albums  such as Body Talk, Just an Illusion, Flashback, Music, and Lights and Changes and many more presenting the perfect Brit Soul/Jazz/Funk songs and establishing their position as essential 80's crossover hit-makers and  an influence for future generations in the music industry. Even today the story of IMAGINATION’s music continues in the form of a long list of samples, remixes and adaptations by major contemporary stars such as The Pharcyde and Dimitri from Paris. Destiny's Child sampled Just An illusion on their 1998 self -titled debut album produced by Wyclef Jean. Leee himself featured on DJ Dero's 2005 rendition of the song which was widely played in clubs. Mariah Carey also recorded “Illusion” on her top ten single “Get Your Number”. Flashback was sampled by Boards of Canada, Music & Lights by Tiger & Woods and All-Night Loving by 88 Keys featuring Kanye West. It’s fair to say that founding member, lead singer and songwriter LEEE JOHN is one of the hardest working men in music, touring internationally both as LEEE JOHN of IMAGINATION and as LEEE JOHN in his ever-popular solo performances, showing his continuous diversity across multi genres from the pop stream, as well as his more classic presentation in the jazz world; none better reflecting this than with the release of his last critically acclaimed solo album, “Feel My Soul”.

With the ever-evolving music industry changes, LEEE JOHN has found his strengths and new challenges working with many different types of record producers, artists, and musicians on various projects. Furthermore, in the UK, LEEE JOHN is once again working his magic with a #2 UK garage record with Drum and Bass DJ, DJ Phantasy,  teaming up with rapper Skibadee and UK group Rolldeep for the top club hit  ‘RAVER “ with DJ Destruction. Also, LEEE has also been instrumental working recently with the legendary Mary Wilson of the Supremes on the top ten Billboard Dance Chart Hit,  “Time 2 Move On” which he wrote, sang and produced.

Naomie “Ngozi” Grandison is this rare kind of artiste whose brand is instantly understood. Hers is a serene and earthy presence that conveys a sense and a celebration of self. Ngozi is her art and her art is her heart – for soul truths that elevate.   She is a vibrant, inspirational and dynamic singer, songwriter, musician, poet and motivational speaker whose keen passion for people, for art and music is evident in the projects she champions. Ngozi’s message exudes her heightened social consciousness and empathy, qualities shaped in the crucible of her life’s experiences and her work as a qualified health care professional.

She co-founded the Wellness Innovators’ “I Am Beautiful” school campaign in Saint Lucia to elevate self-esteem and self-worth among the island’s youth, through secondary school speaking and performance sessions that address issues of adolescent health. Naomie’s song “I am Beautiful” was a significant component of the campaign, with a message that encourages everyone to see and embrace what is beautiful within. The campaign won the National Youth Council ‘Esteem Award’ in 2012.

Naomie’s musical talents are diverse. She weaves her soul truths in neo-soul, alternative, reggae and calypso genres. She released her EP album, “Selections” in 2013, an album which features six tracks reflecting Naomie’s introspective nature and depth of connection with God, nature, self, emotion and people.

Her messages and her music shed some light on her adoption of her stage name – Ngozi, – which aptly means “blessing”, because she sees her gift of music and an innate wisdom about life as a gift and a blessing to be shared.

Song writing is as therapeutic for the artiste as it is inspirational for her audiences. Her most meaningful measure of success is the extent to which her lyrics, themes and music connect with her audiences.

Saint Lucian - American singer Sherwinn ‘Dupes’ Brice is a songwriter whose music is heavily influenced by pop, reggae and R&B. Having already made a name for himself in his native country, Dupes is now focusing on bringing his own, catchy brand of music to the world. Showing command over multiple genres with an aptitude in mixing and matching genres, Dupes brings with him an experience that is very pleasurable to a listening audience.

From an early age, Sherwinn's parents - Samuel and Esther Brice - played a key role in the development of his musical talent. With the instilling of the significance of musical abilities from his dad, his deep fascination with music took off at the age of eleven with the gift of his first portable Walkman recorder from his mom. This saw the beginning of a very bright music career.

Sherwinn's passion for "beat making" was born after a brief stint in the United States, where he was introduced to hip-hop techniques which would later lead to the purchase of his first guitar, a microphone and a four-track recorder. His return to Saint Lucia would see the onset of his quest to find his place in a very broad industry - the Music Business.

Moving around from band to band, he was determined to find the right team to share his vision. Sherwinn often found himself busy behind the scenes which led to his interest in audio production. With limited resources, he used what was available to his advantage - books, the internet and anyone or anything that would provide the hands-on experience that he could learn from. He would eventually build his own demo studio where he would become known for developing his own brand of alternative Saint Lucian music.

For most of his music career, Dupes has been behind the music of various artists.  At the start of 2013, he decided to shift focus to his solo music career and so we see the release of singles with music videos to accompany and the eventual release of his debut 5-track EP, ‘From Saint Lucia with Love’ on October 30th 2015.

Often compared to the likes of Bruno Mars and Wyclef Jean, he is excited about his debut album, ‘3D’ released on October 28th 2016. A self-proclaimed 80s baby with a background steeped in the infectious grooves of Dancehall and Reggae, late 90s R&B and modern day EDM, Sherwinn 'Dupes' Brice's 3D is a mix of sultry love songs, reggae ballads and dance tracks packed with enough whip appeal to keep you locked in for this journey through not just the mind of this singer songwriter, but also his heart.

Saint Lucian band, Skip Monday, effectively combines bohemian vocals with acoustic/electric guitar, bass and drums. The foundation of their genre is unapologetically rock based with threads of blues, pop, r&b, funk and reggae thrown in for good measure.

Covering acts such as Adele, Alice Merton, Colbie Caillat, John Mayer, Clapton, Beatles, Hendrix, Pink Floyd and even Metallica and Nirvana, Skip Monday’s live repertoire is a blend of old and new school rock and pop acts that is as different and dynamic it is entertaining. Skip Monday has participated in several festivals over the years opening for the likes of Maxi Priest, Shaggy, Third World, Barrington Levy and Karen Briggs.

Skip Monday’s performance is entirely live (no synths, drum machines or keyboards for that matter) and their original material, the product of songwriting and arrangements developed over many moons, is seamlessly woven into their cover repertoire.

Named after a British unemployment benefit form, pop-reggae band UB40 was formed in a welfare line in 1978, and their multi-racial lineup reflected the working-class community their members came from. The band consolidated its street credibility with political topics appealing to dissatisfied youth, and got a boost from fans of the waning 2-Tone ska revival movement. Brothers Robin (lead guitar) and Ali Campbell (guitar, lead vocals) formed the centerpiece of the group, along with Earl Falconer, saxophonist Brian Travers, drummer James "Jimmy" Brown, and percussionist Norman Hassan. The group began gigging in 1979, scoring an opening gig with the Pretenders by the end of the year. By 1980, UB40 added keyboardist Michael (Mickey) Virtue and toaster Terence Wilson (aka Astro), rounding out their initial lineup.

Their first single, "Food for Thought," reached the U.K. Top Ten in 1980, beginning a long streak of chart appearances. Signing Off and Present Arms were big sellers in Britain, if not America, and addressed the political issues of the day in songs like "One in Ten," a Top Ten hit blasting Margaret Thatcher for the country's unemployment rate. Released in 1983, Labour of Love, an album of reggae cover songs, gave the group its first chart album in America and first number one U.K. hit with Neil Diamond's "Red, Red Wine." Several albums of original material sold well in the U.K., but only respectably in the U.S., where the group's biggest hit was a Top 30 cover of Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe" featuring the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde.

The band now features Ali Campbell and Astro, both founding members of the original UB40. Only with Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40, reunited with Astro, can audiences get to experience the closest thing to the sound of the hugely successful original line-up of UB40 as all the hits are played.

UB40, featuring Ali and Astro have enjoyed lots of success with live touring and recorded music over the last five years, including top ten albums Silhouette and Unplugged and in 2018, they reached number two in the charts with the critically acclaimed, A Real Labour of Love. They continue to tour the world and sell out arenas and festivals. The band is currently preparing for the 2019 40th Anniversary arena tour starting in Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii before UK and Europe, which will then lead into a huge tour of the US.
