Fresh. Urban. Now.
Those are the three words that best describe new artist Elyscia. Although the contemporary urban artist is brand new to the music business, she is no stranger to music. The attractive and talented songstress has been belting out tunes for most of her life. Her captivating voice has opened doors to sing background for R&Bgreats like Jennifer Hudson and Regina Belle, providing new platforms to showcase her exceptional musical skills.

The JoGo Project

The JoGo Project is a WAMMIE Award winning band from Washington, DC that fuses many styles of music, but with Jazz harmonies and a driving Go-Go beat at its core. JoGo was founded by DC Native and Jazz Saxophonist Elijah Jamal Balbed during a residency at Strathmore in 2014. Over the years, the band has written several original songs such as “One For Pops”, “DC’s Been Good To Me”, “Dear Draylen”, “Too Loud!” and two new songs that will be featured on the band’s upcoming EP “Baby Fever” and “Shahid, You Got What I Need”
