Kianna Cameron

bannerKianna Cameron is a guitarist/singer/songwriter

DSC_1146“I used to sit in the backseat on the way to church with my headphones on listening to [groups] like Val Halen, or PoisonDef Leppard, and when the song got to the solo, I liked to pretend it was me playing it.”, recalls the singer about when she started to become interested in guitar.

In 2008, after only a short time of first playing Kianna Cameron, unexperienced and fearless, was invited to sit in on a song with a local cover band at their gig the following week.

A bar called Bill’s Place, dusty dark colored blinds over all the windows so it always felt like night, a wooden bar that streched almost the length of the small building in the middle, and opposite of that a makeshift, two tier stage.

Kianna and her parents took the only unoccupied seats, three chairs around a table close to the stage. Who knows how much time went by before one of the band members leaned into the mic and called her name. It was her first time performing in front of anyone, none the less, a crowded bar full of people.

“I don’t even remember what song we played. I dont think I even knew that night. All they said was it’s in the key of D, and off went we went.” When the band finished, she looked up from her guitar for the first time since the song started to face the large crowd.

Kianna Cameron – Live on “The Pulse”

Immediately, the place shifted from an unexpecting silence to an uncontainable applause. “I don’t know what they were expecting, but I don’t think they were expecting me to play like that”. The band invited her back to play the next week and each week to follow for a year.

DSC_0987There Kianna got her first taste of being on stage and playing live music. Now at this time in her life music was her passion, playing guitar was her love, and school was in the way.

A junior at Mineral Ridge High School in Ohio, Kianna previously a dedicated student, lost all interest. More pivotal even than that, she found herself changing and maturing.

Knowing what she wanted in life made her see everything differently and what was important to the average high school kid meant nothing to her anymore.

Kianna explains, “The few people I did hang out with, I didn’t make sense to them: why I stayed home just to practice, why I started dressing in skinny jeans and band t-shirts, why I left high school..”.

In 2009, Kianna completed her junior year at that school, the only one she’d ever known, then never returned deciding rather to spend her time working on what she loved now.

Always seeing herself as just a guitarist, stepping out front was something Kianna shied away from until seizing an opportunity meant going beyond those limits. “I was in a band that broke up, and the drummer from that band messaged me one night months later and asked if I wanted to be the guitarist in a new punk rock band he was starting. Punk rock wasn’t really my style, but by that time, I had started writing songs of my own and I was just dying for an outlet for them. Also, I wanted to get back on stage performing so of course I jumped at the opportunity.” The problem? This band had everything but a lead singer.

Mint Condition – Gumbo by Kianna Cameron

Fueled by her desire, she found the courage to suggest she be the lead singer, despite notquite yet having developed her singing skills. “I sucked!”, laughs Kianna, “It really took me awhile to find my voice, because I never pictured me being a singer. All the songs I wrote, I never intended for me to be the one singing them. But, I wanted to make music. I wanted to be apart of a band.” The young artist worked relentlessly improving and a true love for singing grew in her through the process.

DSC_1062She performed with the band, who called themselves SicKasMe, for two years gigging at bars, clubs, and festivals throughout Northeast Ohio, even releasing a CD entitled, “Music Above the Mines“.

After ending the band in 2011, unsure where to go next, Kianna began to lend her guitar playing to differnt singers, groups, recordings, and live shows.

Still, her heart was in the songs she was writing.

She decided it was time to step out even further and continue as a solo artist. Now in early 2014, new artist Kianna Cameron is throwing herself into the music on her upcoming debut album, writing and recording her own style of pop music with a sexy r&b and funk flavor.

The-Floacist-2014NatalieThe FloacistStewart is a singer/poet

The Manifestation

PGPhoto_PhoenixMermaid-36Born in Germany to Jamaican born and British raised parents, NatalieThe FloacistStewart is a natural.

The trained actress and slam champion poet, she made her stage debut at age three.

As a graduate of Richard Branson’s BRIT Performing Arts and Technology College where she earned the title of ‘Student of The Year.’

The Floacist later went on to invite her long time friend Marsha Ambrosius to perform at a poetry event that Natalie was headlining along side her renowned performance poetry group ‘3 Plus 1.‘  That night, Floetry was born.  As the creative mastermind of Floetry, The Floacist acted as manager and PR agent.

The Floacist EPK

She then managed to take her blossoming artistic venture from South London to Philadelphia and ultimately, to the World.  So, 

after five years of non-stop, sold out, touring and selling well over 1 million copies of three released albums and a live album DVD, Floetry moved on to solo ventures.

The Graduation: Floetic Soul

PGPhoto_PhoenixMermaid-4The Floacist’s solo debut offering, Floetic Soul, was released November 9, 2010. “Floetic Soul was inspired by the understanding that my original Floetic concept of `Poetic Delivery with Musical Intent’ had not come to an end, even though my group, Floetry had completed it’s cycle.

Joining forces with the mesmerizing wordsmith, is a stellar line up of guests including soul crooners Musiq Soulchild and Raheem DeVaughn.

As well as the God-Daughter of Soul, Lalah Hathaway.  With production by the likes of JR Hudson (Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild) and Chris ‘Big Dog’ Davis (George Clinton, Kim Burrell, Will Downing).

The Evolution: Floetry Re:Birth

On November 13, 2012, The Floacist celebrated the ten year anniversary since her creative vision took flight with the release of her new and sophomore recording, Floetry Re:Birth.

“These past ten years have been one of self-love and independence.  Floetry Re:Birth explores that journey,” shares the London based artist. The Floacist is joined for the first time on recording by the lovely gold-selling South African singer Thandiswa, from the popular and celebrated South African unit Bongo Maffin. “My vision and dream for this project is for people to pick up the album, learn the words, and then come to the show so that we can connect in the divine energy and vibration of music!  I love the road.  I look forward to hearing my music grow as I tour.

Forever – The Floacist (featuring Musiq Soulchild)


The Floacist’s third album ‘RISE of the Phoenix Mermaid was released on March 18th 2014.  RISE of the Phoenix Mermaid has been inspired, as always, by my personal walk and journey through the pages of the day to day parable that is my life!

RISE is a compilation of a few songs that I wrote in 2006/7, at the point of the end of Floetry, that I didn’t have the opportunity to share but have now reworked and finally am delighted to present to my audience, as well as a few completely new songs that I manifested in 2013, and I have also converted some of my favorite spoken word pieces into the Floetic ethos of song structure. The creation of this album has been about reflection, empowerment, self love, acceptance, submission, the Divine Feminine and the completion concept of endings leading to new beginnings.

The Floacist – Feel Good

PGPhoto_PhoenixMermaid-10For all of the people who have been along for the journey of Floetry and eventually my solo artist walk, the message is about perseverance and alignment.

The message is about being prepared for one’s own opportunities. The message is about the ability to rise from the abyss of isolation, journeying upwards always, out of the ashes from the purification of the fires of change.

Marguerite “Turnin Toxic” Review


CLICK PHOTO TO BUY Turnin’ Toxic by Marguerite

Do you like classic uplifting positive Soul Music with a Message? If so this album is for you, 17 great songs about life, love and learning from a woman who has seen a lot of life’s difficulties due to a long list of medical problems. None of her difficulties seem to have dented her spirit but made her stronger and this shines out through the lyrics in her songs.

As Marguerite says “If music doesn’t have a message then it has no meaning”,this is the work of a woman with talent, spirit and attitude but most of all great love which “Spread Love” highlights with its message of giving love to people as we walk through life .

The quality and variety of song ensures that all real soul music lovers will find their tastes catered for.

Another favourite of mine is “At The End Of The Day” with a message that speaks to me its ok being you so love yourself too. The title track is a social commentary about where the world is going wrong in 2014, a message that needs to be heard alongside the positive tunes.

Marguerite can sing upbeat and down-tempo tunes equally well and “Together “is a great example of how she handles the slower song. The song “Keep It Movin “ captures the spirit of Marguerite perfectly as she sings “ keep it real or keep it movin “ Marguerite is a lady whose voice needs to be heard in 2014

About Marguerite

1273309_10202232143270578_648232084_oMy name is Marguerite. My Mother nicknamed me Tina as a young girl after Tina Turner because of my voice and the way I danced.

I am a native of Washington, D.C. My birthday falls on the 5th day of November. Despite any pseudonyms for being creatively me – Tina, Miracle, Margo and then back to Marguerite!

When you say my name, say it loud and sweet, let it roll off your lips and say “Marguerite”!

I am an Independent Artist living with disabilities. It is my hopes to encourage and inspire others in all walks to never give up on their dreams and know that “through positive thought all things are possible”.


I am a survivor of six brain surgeries, both knees replaced twice, both hips replaced, lost of right eye, right jaw replaced, multiple heart attacks, multiple strokes, seizures, and more due to prolonged steroid treatment for a tumor “I never had”. Music is my salvation; it helped me through a long healing process.

615267_10202232143310579_72387835_oI began creatively writing as soon as I could spell and write. When I was 8 years old I wrote a commercial jingle for the Kellogg’s stick up for breakfast contest in which I won first prize.

I wrote small plays for my siblings and myself to perform for our parents and sometimes other friends and family members. I draw, paint landscapes and abstracts. Graphic arts and electronic publishing have become a few of my self-taught accomplishments.

The Back Alley Theater and the D.C. Black Repertory in the District of Columbia is where I trained to be an actress. I went from being a student to being on stage with a natural grace. My friends and family encouraged me to become a singer after they saw my performances in musical plays.

Loving You Like A LoveSong

I took everybody’s advice to pursue a career as a singer and life has been a song ever since.I have worked with groups/bands in D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Miami doing live and recorded performances. People liken me to the late Phyllis Hyman and to Chaka Khan, who happen to be my mentors.

1294592_10202232143350580_80544563_oMedical trauma interrupted my growth as an Artist/Singer; however, my triumph over many adversities has made me stronger, more loving, and caring.

My enhanced spiritual and emotional growth reflects in my writing and in my delivery of the songs I write.

A friend, who is a big fan said, “I have a soul stirring voice with powerful words that will “make” a person want to listen.”

Alaina Nelson

banner Alaina NelsonAlaina Nelson is a singer, songwriter and actress

image2In a day and age where true artistry is rarely demonstrated and even less likely to be celebrated, Philadelphia based singer/songwriter Alaina Nelson claws her way to center stage…ready, willing and fully capable of defying the odds.

A self-proclaimed ‘artsy artist,’ her sugary, story-telling soprano grabs you by the hand and beelines straight to the left.

Perhaps a sub-conscious, yet brazen attempt to distract you from her ambiguous appearance…or just maybe, a mere glimpse into the gray area that is her world.

The daughter of a local icon, singer/musician DaveSonnyNelson, Alaina was often the only child present at his band rehearsals. Tucked away in a corner, her eyes open wide with fascination; it was there that the adoration she held for her father sparked her love affair with music.

Even further defining Alaina was her upbringing as a child of African-American, Irish, German, and Native American descent in a rough, urban neighborhood on the outskirts of Philadelphia.

This instilled a survivability instinct within her that would later become evident in the lyrics she would write and the passion with which she would sing… At the tender age of five, she began cultivating her musical roots via training in piano and musical theater, and it quickly became apparent that she had been blessed with a beautiful gift…a powerful, luminous, and undeniable voice.

Alaina Nelson behind the scenes of “Still In Love”

legshotAlaina’s focus shifted toward industry icons like Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Teena Marie, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey; with whom she was strongly impressed by their vocal delivery, writing and performances.

Relentless in her pursuit, Alaina studied these artists all the while honing her skills by performing as much as possible up and down the east coast in weddings, talent showcases, corporate events, and festivals.

Although her sound was often compared to Teena Marie vocally, Alaina’s original music began to exhibit a heavy hip-hop/soul influence, a result of being captivated by artists like Mary J. Blige, Busta Ryhmes and A Tribe Called Quest.

Alaina has spent the last few years signed to several independent labels, none of which produced a final product.

Finally, Alaina decided to take fate into her own hands and test the waters as a true independent…writing, recording and releasing her album, entirely on her own.

Alaina Nelson “Still In Love” feat. DyShon Penn of MTB4 

April 8, 2014 marked the release of her first commericial single, entitled “Frisky Tipsy.” This was the third single released from her album (Behind “If Time Were On Our Side” & “Still In Love“) but it was the first collaboration with her current producer/co-writer Caino, and it showcased not only her growth as a writer & vocalist, but a whole new sound. Alaina finally released her long awaited debut EP, “Miss Alaineous” in May.

headphoneIn love with the process, Alaina is currently writing & recording the follow up to her debut album, which she plans to release as an LP before the years end.

She’s the lead female singer for The John King Dance Band, a part of Philly’s premiere talent agency, EBE, as well as Expressions Models.

Having also returned to her acting roots, Alaina is currently filming a television show (Rollo Robertson Productions) entitled “Runaways,” where she stars as the fearless mafia princess, Gloria Salmaducci.

Never one to quit or be silenced, Alaina continues to grow as a singer, songwriter and actress. More comfortable in her own skin than ever, all the world is her stage … she plans on using every square inch of it.
