Amber Jay’s delicate emotive vocals and innovative production toys between alternative and bedroom pop, weaving amongst dark unearthly concepts and heartfelt lyrics. Her debut EP Never Too Far from a Dark Thought blends genres from the likes of electronica to alt-pop sounds to create her own atmospheric cinematic musical universe.

Her first single from the EP Pencilled Brims gained support from Huw Stephens at ​BBC introducing Radio 1,​ numerous plays on ​BBC Introducing ​Merseyside, and Spotify, who added it to their Fresh Finds Pop editorial playlist. Tastemakers such as Earmilk named her debut EP ‘golden’ ​and music that will ​‘bounce around in your brain for days.’

The songs from the choir and the instrumentation from the musicians were enough to kindle the flame for what is Navarre.

3. Justin Santos – Vampr Pro User

Born in Long Island, New York, and moved to Tampa Florida at the age of 10. Music has always been an influence in his life no matter where it came from. Genres such as Dancehall, Hip Hop, and RnB have influenced him heavily because of the artists those genres have produced.

Andre 3000, Busta Rhymes, Jon Bellion, Common, Raphael Saadiq, Mali Music, Jah Cure, and many more artists have influenced his music. He is a producer, artist, musician, writer, and composer. “Art inspires an artist to inspire others”. He uses the tools given to him to help paint the picture for his audience to enjoy and go with him on the journey.

“I just want art to be art again…remember when art was something that you would go out of your way to enjoy (museums, galleries, concerts, and plays) well I want that same effect in my music”.

Eazy was born André Calloway in Chicago, Illinois. At the young age of 11, he began writing rap lyrics and recording songs with his uncle and mentor, Stanley (Smoove G) Shannon. By high school, at the age of 14, Eazy formed the rap group, Deep Souljas, with friends and fellow classmates. Throughout his teenage years, he learned the craft of music production and recorded his first indie album under the moniker Shorty Cee.

Upon graduating from high school, Eazy received a KORG Triton keyboard from his father as a graduation present and began to hone his skills as a music producer. He majored in Sound Engineering while attending Columbia College and later switched his focus to Audio Production when transferring to the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago where he became more knowledgeable in digital music production with programs such as FL Studio, Adobe Audition, Logic, and Pro Tools.

As Eazy progressed into his 20s he began to teach himself more engineering and mixing techniques.
