TruthCity
Born in the early 90s to a single mother in the US Military, Newport News, Virginia native Ronald "TruthCity" Evans has always dreamed about becoming an entertainer. As a child, Truth's inspiration stemmed from watching his mother perform at various engagements, subsequently discovering his own hidden talents, consisting of penning songs and rapping. Inspired by prolific and distinguished artists such as Jay-Z, Nas, Coldplay, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol to solidify a career in the entertainment industry. During adolescence, Truth made the painstaking decision to leave college before completion, subsequently moving to New York to pursue his musical career. Living a mostly nomadic lifestyle, he found refuge working menial jobs during the day and sleeping on couches and in the back of restaurants during the night. Becoming immensely competitive, Truth honed his skills by rigorously participating in numerous competition and talent shows nationwide. He first gained significant attention in 2006 after opening for Boyz II Men and Faith Evans, as well as Fantasia and Lil Wayne in 2007. In 2009, Truth further materialized his burgeoning career by appearing on BET's 106 & Park's Wild Out Wednesday and even securing the 1st place winner's title at BET's Blaze The Stage. Truth continued to progressively excel, penning songs for the Inkredibles from 2009 -2010, obtaining a publishing deal with Undisputed Ent. Inc from 2010 - 2011. Since signing to The Society Management Group, Inc in 2012, he has recorded over 50 records and has opened for Fabolous and performed numerous venues in NY such as SOBs and Webster Hall. TruthCity is renowned for his unique artistry and eclectic taste, as reflected in his music. Critics have hailed him the future of the new school. TruthCity, the artist and the brand can't only be measured by his talent in the pop, urban, alternative and hip-hop markets as a singer, rapper and songwriter, but is unquestionably professional with a distinct sound, style and image that both recording and performing artist can only dream to possess.

"Brittany Campbell is the artist people dream to be." - Deli Magazine. Blending elements of RnB, Pop, Electronic Soul, and Rock, Campbell is a true Avatar of the new direction of today's music industry. With independent artist breakthroughs such as Odd Future, Chvrches, Banks, and Macklemore, never was there a more opportune time for the DIY artist to break through the "glass ceiling" nor has there ever been a time where the ability to wear many hats was more vital to an artist's career. An award winning singer, songwriter, producer and visual artist, Campbell is unequivocally equipped to tackle the industry's ever-changing climate exemplifying the virtues of musical reverence, visual innovation, curated collaboration, and pure raw talent. Boasting 4 studio releases, her debut EP Nerd (2011) reaching the Top 10 NYC pop charts, her second studio album Heroes (2014) claiming an Independent Music Award for best pop album, has made her inarguably an artist to watch but perhaps even more exciting, is her newfound merging of music and animation. "An inspired audio-visual experience", according to Paper Magazine, Brittany has captured the attention of both the music and art world. Her animated music videos appearing in a multitude of festivals such as The Portland Oregon Women's Film Festival (2016) and Legends of Hollywood Film Festival (2016). Currently, Brittany is in studio, working on a 4 part series called "Stay Gold" that she calls her "personal fantasia". The first of the series, released Feb 2016, received positive reviews - Complex Mag calling her the "future of soul".
