JunSix

 

JunSix started emceeing after hearing “Raising Hell” by Run DMC at the age of 10 and has been doing it ever since. After performing in and winning a rap contest at 11, he decided that he wanted to make a career out of music. Since then, his music has allowed fans to get to know him as a battle emcee, a poet and a vocalist.

 

 

 

JunSix’s style has gotten him compared to the likes of Q-tip, Talib Kweli, Common and Ghostface. However, JunSix considers his influences to range from Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, Rakim, Biggie, Tupac and Das EFX to Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye for various reasons. An “against the grain” artist, JunSix focuses on words which defines his style. He chooses to entertain as well as educate which results in lyrical content that leads into a catchy hook. Musically, one can look for influences from soul and jazz to even rock.

 

 

 

A JunSix album takes you on a ride that goes from pure emceeing to feeling good to just bluntly giving you food for thought. Ultimately, his music is honest and reflects where he is when he writes what he writes.

 

 

 

JunSix hopes to be an important part of hip-hop history and make memorable music and ultimately and perhaps most importantly cultivate a spiritual curiosity. “The challenge is to give the listener healthy food without taking away the flavor.”

 

 

 

Bon appetite!

From Detroit Michigan, Jazzy LG (Larry Griggs) discovered his love of music at the age of 12. He used to walk around with a portable Casio keyboard, and discovered he could play back popular songs from the radio from memory, one note at a time. This discovery eventually led to a desire to expand on his talent, as he took lessons in middle school, playing the alto clarinet, and learning basic music theory.

 

Being raised by a single parent, after leaving Detroit, and moving to Columbus, Ohio, his options were limited. He wanted to participate in sports, but they were hard to commit to, as times were tough financially. He knew survival came first, so he had to work while going to school to help his mother make ends meet. He later joined the military, still clinging to the dream of music fame and fortune, meeting a multitude of talented artists and producers from around the country, and even running into Phillip Bailey (Earth Wind and Fire) at a Denver Airport on the way to Basic Training. Only fragments of his dream ever truly surfaced, while opening up for Hip hop legends KRS-One, and Ice Tee in San Antonio, Texas, June of 1985. KRS-One actually wanted to take some of his music back to New York, but alas, with no real knowledge of the industry, that didn’t happen. Ice Tee called their group ‘the next generation of hip hop’, due to their (rapping and singing, while playing live music, supplemented by a DJ). The direction of his style at that time was rudimentary and vague. It primarily consisted of ‘club tracks’, ‘money’ and ‘hoes’, (most of which you hear on the radio today) which left him with an empty feeling.

 

Having been raised in the church, he came to realize his true style and calling, gospel music. Not traditional gospel music though: the same vibe that you would get from mainstream industry artists: nice beats, smooth harmonies, catchy hooks, crisp production and engineering, but with a message focused on hope and redemption. Ironically, his estranged father, during his entire musical journey, had withheld a vital piece of information that could have shaved 20 years off of his lifetime struggle to ‘catch a break’. It was revealed on father’s day 2007, that Jazzy was in fact related to none other than the founder of Motown Records, Berry Gordy! (He is a first cousin). This revelation was absolutely mind blowing. It seemed like a cruel joke, or twist of fate. However, due to the fact that his music now had a dedicated path and a calling much higher than fame or financial gain, it became a moot point. A higher power was definitely at work, and his path was clear. He makes music to inspire, with a path to greatness that is measured by inspiring the greatness in others.

Living Waters

 

 

Living Waters started as a house music ministry group at a retreat center in MA in 1976. In imitation of Lighthouse in Ann Arbor it expanded to a full production with dance, drama, lighting and sound production. Travelling in a converted bus LW played in at least 8 states, including Yankee Stadium, the World Marriage Encounter Convention, Hartford Civic Center and more. Over the decades they developed a very unique Christian rock style that has been described as “uplifting” and “inspirational”.

 

 

There were many highlights: the song “Peter the Rock” was presented to and blessed by Pope John Paul II at the hands of Ambassador Ray Flynn. Living Waters played and sang with Dana and John Michael Talbot. Eventually, the group became a faith family, many members marrying other members in the group & having a lot of talented kids.

 

 

Now, the band continues to meet and pray together. Over recent years LW has achieved amazing success on the Internet. The band has been featured on Windows Media and the ReverbNation main page. After four decades of continuous existence as a band, they have achieved their long-term goal of a digital album release, “Refresh” on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and other sites. There is also a collection of Christmas classics entitled “The Joy” that is pouring out to refresh hearts and souls.

 

 

And in 2015, a brand new two-song EP, “Alive Again”, is out on major outlets and attracting major attention.

 

 

In 2016, a collection of recent work entitled “Still Flowing” was released.
