SEVEN ALI

SEVEN ALI

Hip-Hop

Since about 4 years old, SEVEN ALI has always had a knack for the conception of music, crowd control, and visual innovation. Spending most days throughout Union County, N.C., Seven's most take away memories come from a small town in the county, Wingate, where he'd spend days performing songs of his favorite artists from Tupac, Michael Jackson, Usher, and so on. In years to come, Seven started performing in talent shows, some in North Carolina, some in Atlanta. Through his later years as he started expanding his taste palette for music, he fell into a deep love for hip hop. From freestyling for fun with his older brother and friends, to taking the pen to the pad, to developing a sound for himself, Seven released his first EP - Izanami in September 2016. Only 16 years old at the time, Seven was then known as Indigo Sandifer. After an insane first rollout, life took an immediate turn for Indigo. The very next month he lost his home, for the second time. With life spiraling in many directions Indigo decided to take a slight hiatus until early January 2018, when he released his second project, The Death of Shoganai. The 10 song mixtape ranged in various sounds and emotions the artist bottled up within that time. Following the shift in life came a shift in perspective, inspiration, and identity. Thus, Seven Ali was born. Since then he has released his hottest pieces as such as Enemies, Control, and BULLETPROOF! Currently Seven has been putting together his most profound project yet EVERYTHING WENT BLANK. While he doesn't say much on what to expect, he's let it be known that it will be here sometime 2021.

My name is Chase Cash, and I am a 21 year old student at UNCC. I am a double major or Environmental Studies and Geography, with a concentration in GIS Science and Technology. Along with classes and studies, I produce hip hop instrumentals and beats. I take influence from Chill Hop, Lo Fi, and Boom Bap styles of hip hop.

I started making beats when I was in high school, and all through high school, I would say this was my learning phase. I took my time learning music production and what it takes to make a solid track, how to produce, mix, master, and release music. Now in college, I am taking my music more seriously by releasing to major streaming platforms, and marketing my own products. I have released an album and a single, with another album set for release in early march.

I look forward to hearing from your team and I plan to learn more about other artists in the CLT area to collaborate and spread the music scene of Charlotte.

Thank you for this opportunity to reach out and being able to tell you a bit about my self and my music. Thank you!

Well$

Well$

Rap

"Like most kids in his native town of Charlotte, North Carolina, Leroy Shingu, had a head filled with Hip-hop dreams growing up, even trying his hand at freestyling when he was all of nine years old.
But a storied background starkly different to the blissful suburban reality of his peers would compel the rapper better known as Well$ to turn that childhood fantasy into his newly launched career as a rapper.

Quietly released in 2012, $ay La V, Well#39; debut EP rose steadily on the Bandcamp charts to peak at number 5 and eventually become the most downloaded album in the Charlotte Area. That remarkable ascent as well as the video for the song State of Ecstasy The Interlude Part 1 hauled Well$ out of virtual anonymity, and shoved him onto high profile stage performances with artists such as G Eazy, Chris Webby, Johnny Polygon, and one of his idols Pac Div.

Proud To Be An American, one of Well#39; standout tracks off $ay La V, is the assured declaration of a young man who has come to terms with his identity and adopted home, flaws and all. Yet it wasn't always this way. Born in the US to Congolese illegal immigrants, Well$ has encountered the ins and outs of America's legal system for as long as he can remember. What started as a routine police search ended up with his mother serving a six-month jail stint when it emerged that she was in the country undocumented. Left mostly in the care of a grandmother who barely speaks English, Well#39; teenage life slowly spiraled downwards into delinquency. Dabbling in car theft, drug dealing and eventually dropping out of high school caused his concerned mother to ship him off to New Orleans to stay with his cousin Alec Lomami in the hope that he could steer him back on to the straight and narrow.
Lomami (nowadays producer and Immaculate Records label owner) averted Well#39; focus to music as a means to channel his feelings of angst and isolation. In 2010 the two of them began work in earnest on Well#39; debut, marking the turning point for him.

As always, on his forth-coming album Well#39; music deftly walks the tricky balance between niche underground and commercial mainstream drawing on styles that range from breast-beating braggadocio through to quiet, moody introspection. "My music is like me, sometimes it's serious, sometimes it's playful, sometimes it's happy, sometimes it's sad, sometimes it's meaningful and sometimes it's meaningless," Well$ describes his swinging pendulum of musical expressions, always true to his realest self.
Fatherhood is one of many subjects that Well$ touches on. The lead single Black Swan explores the life choices of a young woman affected by an absent father. Elsewhere, on Major Pain Well$ walks in the shoes if his own imperfect dad.
In Dreams of an Insomniac, Well$ stands on the edge of a cliff and meticulously lays out fears of flying - those pesky "what if" questions that keep him up at night."

Stefan Kallander

Stefan Kallander

Funk / Hip-Hop

"Before becoming a guitarist whose skills were in demand by Grammy-Winning artists, before his unique production ear was discovered, before his ability to teach complex musical concepts while imparting the historical and cultural impact of that music on his students was realized, and before his songwriting voice began to spread around the world, Stefan Kallander was a boy with a vision that seemed different than the others he was growing up around.

Tagged onto the end of the 1980's, Stefan Kallander was raised between the liberal west coast environment of Seattle, WA and Charlotte, NC in the conservative south. Kallander's musical intuition began to first materialize as a child in the back seat of a purple Dodge Caravan where the deep rhythm and unbounded energy of Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin impressed on him what music should feel like. He started playing guitar as soon as he could, imitating the unreal power he felt in the music he was hearing. Stefan thirsted for further musical transcendence and found the surging sound of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. As he dug through their catalog he discovered what specifically spoke to him, it was the Funk. Kallander discovered the Chili Peppers' idolized P-Funk and the door swung wide open. The energy, the flawless songwriting, soaring vocals, and tight, yet screaming guitars left him spellbound and with a realization of what he wanted to do with his life.
Kallander began performing at age 13 which led to the formation of various bands and then regional touring all before age 18. He was a standout young guitarist and upon receiving a scholarship from Berklee College of Music decided he would pursue formal music education. Berklee allowed for endless hours of uninterrupted practice and propelled Kallander into rehearsals and performances with his musical idols and funk legends George Clinton, Bernie Worrell and P-Funk guitar master Mike Hampton during his time in Boston. Kallander was recognized by this Funk royalty as not only a multifaceted guitar player with outstanding rhythm and lead chops but also a musical visionary whose voice should be heard.

Since returning to Charlotte, North Carolina, Kallander has become an integral part of the southern music space, called upon not only for his vivid and distinct guitar playing but also his groomed production ear and individual songwriting voice. He has been entrusted to contribute to various artists in the southeastern scene, most notably performances and recordings with Grammy-winning artists Kendra Foster and Anthony Hamilton. He is a founding member of the Charlotte powerhouse soul group The Queen's Guard feat. Blanche J and performs in the band of Prince's last saxophone player and protégé - Adrian Crutchfield. He has been able to play regularly at church after coming off consistent touring which led him back to a love of God he had never imagined, while at the same time he has become a go-to force of funk in the emerging Charlotte Rennaisance. All eyes should be on the south as there is some of the most intriguing music of our time coming forth from it. Stefan Kallander humbly lends his sound to that emergence."

You name it and Geisha has done it. She wasn't the most outspoken individual during her younger years, but when she hit a stage, played in her church's marching band, or danced for performances she showed to everyone who watched in amazement that she can say a lot without using words.

College was an interesting and blossoming time for Geisha as she began to pop out her shell. Shyness became a thing of the past when became a "Stud Entertainer" to make extra cash. Dancing was something natural for her but the icing on the cake and what would change her life forever was a Digital Music Composition course taken during her final semester at UNCG.

Corey Parkman

Corey Parkman AKA C0REY P was born in Charlotte, NC. He started writing lyrics before adolescence, influenced by his favorite rap artist. He continued to write lyrics throughout his school career until he joined the ARMY. While in the Military, he was stationed in FT. Hood, TX where he started recording singles throughout his late teens and early 20's. After his time in the service, he continue to record singles while he worked dead end jobs.

His Motto is... No Excuses... Just Results!

As far as his music goes, Corey likes to think that he has a unique flow that stands out apart from anyone else in Hip Hop, past or present. He is not afraid of being himself when choosing his beats, concepts or content. His word play is unlike anyone else's in the game (and he stands by that till death) and his punch lines reach the same heights if not beyond some of the GOATS. The talent hie is most proud of is that: he has a knack for making each of his verses rhyme from start to finish with the same beginning rhyme all the way through while still maintaining the overall concept of the song and not using repeat words. Each additional verse will start with rhymes different from the previous verses but will also rhyme all the way through and continue to stay on topic. You can find this skill in the songs "Know How", "Do Thangz" and "Momma Told Me". Lastly, he is not a big fan of repetitive hooks that repeat themselves every one or two bars. Enjoy!
