About the artists
For a very long time, there has been an empty space; an empty space in the music scene that very few artists have been able to fill. This is where Eliah walks in, filling the empty space where “Grown Man Music” formerly resided in days gone by. He’s bringing it back in a major way, taking listeners back to a simpler place and time, where men opened car doors for their ladies and Saturday night was about wine, roses, blue talk and love.
Zae The Singer
Isaiah Bell aka Zae the Singer was born to sing. Growing up in a musical community he was exposed to several different styles from a number of different eras. Learning from all that he could is how he adopted his own unique style. From church, to the opera stage, and even to poetry showcases, Isaiah has proven that his voice compliments any occasion.
Jay D. Jones
Jay D. Jones is one sure act that’s hard to follow and one you definitely don’t want to miss. He is a Charlotte native and personifies the true quality of music at its finest. This modern day “Crooner” is bellowing his way to the top in the Indie industry of music and into the hearts of his fans with his soulful sounds and distinguished gentlemanly image. His artistry is credited to inspiring artists such as Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, and his all time favorite, The Temptations, and that’s only a few.
