Jaedyn James is the lead of the eight piece ‘Raw Funk & Aggressive Soul’ band, The Hunger . Consumed by her passion at 23 years old, James quit her full time job and assembled a group of musicians based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. JJ’s work ethic, energy, and music reflect the stylings of James Brown, Etta James, Lucille Ball, Marina Abromovich, and EE cummings. The combination of a powerful, modern woman using vintage sounds and attitudes is not only refreshing, but cause to celebrate. Within 3 years of managing & fronting The Hunger , James sent the band on regional tours, recorded the 14 track album,” RAW , ” produced 4 music videos, and received national radio play. The last of the video series, “ Set You On Fire ” gained over 25,000 views in the first two weeks of release. Never a stranger to challenge, James is setting the stage for 2018 to be one of the band’s biggest years yet. You can find a link to their facebook page here , and a sample of their music down below! DOSES is a producer, singer/songwriter with a unique and diverse sound. Refusing to be marginalized to one genre, DOSES finds a way to intertwine influences from hip-hop, indie, latin, and soul. Originating from rap, his vocals are a fusion of Kid Cudi and Prince coupled with the instrumental lovechild of J Dilla and Mac Demarco. Smooth, soothing keys and groovy bass ride upon intricate rhythms with honest, vulnerable lyrics that intrigue and captivate the ears of those who seek the truth.
