Singer and songwriter Marc A. Evans has been writing and performing for more than 15 years. In 2004, he wrote the single, "The Way You Love Me," a soulful house tune that has become a standard in the genre. He recorded and released the full album, "The Way You Love Me," in the fall of 2008 and the two-disc Deluxe Edition in Fall 2009. Independently, Evans also released both, "Live & Acoustic," and "Intervention" in 2009 on his label VOR Music Group.
Joi Carter, also known simply as JC, is a Baltimore native with a fiery sound and an engagingly spunky stage performance indicative of her love for 80's music and growing up in a household filled with the sounds of soca, funk, and rock. As a former member of the Washington, D.C.-based Go-Go band "Mambo Sauce," she has performed at some of the best live music venues in the United States including the House of Blues, the 9:30 Club, Fox Theatre, and The Kennedy Center, along with local venues such as Jammin Java, State Theatre, and Rams Head Live.
Howard University Alumna Geneva Renée, whose vocal range spans three octaves, produces a sound heavily influenced by classical, jazz, Latin, soul, gospel, pop and theater. Over the years, she has been afforded the opportunity to perform at numerous local and national venues and shared the stage with many stars including Diana Ross, Maysa Leak, Vanessa Williams, and Darius Rucker. Geneva has performed across the DMV in legendary venues such as Blues Alley, the Carter Barron, the Kennedy Center, and the Howard Theatre. She recently performed as a featured guest at the Cherry Blossom Festival, and the Rehoboth Beach and Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festivals.
