Artist to Watch in 2015


Lee England Jr

The only violinist to appear on Diddy’s Making the Band on MTV and the representative of the Jordan Brand earned a B.S. in music business, a B.A. in music performance and a B.A. in music education from Southern Illinois University (SIU) in Carbondale, Illinois. England also focused on another instrument while he attended SIU; singing. The former Chicago Public School music teacher’s improvisation skills and his versatility to play music of any genre speak to the masses as music lovers gravitate to his talents. With his fusion of Jazz, Hip-Hop and Gospel, the universal language of music he communicates bridges generation gaps. With the support and encouragement of his instructors, along with the love from his parents, England was prepped for success. His sport of choice was playing the violin, as he spent hours practicing daily to hone his craft. He recalls only one incident when a peer questioned him about his extracurricular activity, where one of his best friends asked him to leave England alone and that was the end of it.

Dj Wavy

Christian Morton better known as “DJ Wavy” is the next big DJ that everyone is raving about. Born in Brooklyn but raised in Vineland, NJ. New Jersey is where DJ Wavy got on the map. Once an all-star basketball player, Wavy turned down the opportunity to play for a division 1 school and began making a name for himself as a DJ . “I started drumming in my dad’s church when I was young. From then on I always knew music was my first love.” Despite his destined future as a basketball player and opposition from his parents, both of whom are pastors deeply rooted in their religion, Christian began to DJ while in the 10th grade. He stayed consistent and persistent through the hard times and quickly rose to the top as a young DJ. DJ Dimaond Kutz discovered DJ Wavy and quickly took him under her wings. DJ Dimaond Kutz is Nicki Minaj tour DJ and Phillys Power 99fm DJ. That relationship has helped DJ Wavy to be involved with many events. Nothing but inspiration came from that life changing moment. That inspired Wavy to work harder and it paid off and he ended up on different tours and involvement with shows for artist such as Lil Durk, Freeway, Macklemore, Pusha T ,Chinx Drugz, Fabulous, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, and Childish Gambino.“ Wavy has moved back to New York with a bigger name then he had before. His name is becoming so big that Hot 97 Dj Funkflex, and Joe Jaxson(Number one Promoter in NYC) has reached out to him. From there Wavy has begun to a build NY fan base around him. Wavy now throws the livest teen parties from ages 17-21 in NYC. Wavy is looking to takeover and do things that hasn’t been done before at his young age. “I just wanna thank my fans who supported me and continue to support me. It wouldn’t have been possible without you.
