Artist Biography
I am an Akan, my name is Yovan Brindou and everyone calls me Luckydabo$$. I am the founder of a

NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) called Action pour le tiers monde / Action for the third world.

The goal of the organization is to come to people assistance all over the world and help improve lives

and living conditions.

My people are from the Ashanti Kingdom in West Africa, in what is now Ghana and part of Ivory Coast.

After several wars with the colons the kingdom spread all over the west coast of Africa with the Main

seat still in Ghana.

My people migrated and my great-great-grand ancestors moved their communities and their people all

the way toward the left (Which is the East part of Ivory Coast) where they settled.

I come from a royalty, my Great-great grand Father took care of our people and passed it down from

generation to generation.

In 1989 my father came to the U.S with bigger goals and ideas in mind. My father was very active in

social issues in Ivory Coast and was involved in a lot of good projects for the people.

I joined my father in the U.S around my 18 th birthday which was a very good moment.

Growing up, I was a very active kid. I played soccer for major teams in Ivory Coast since the age of 7

(Stella Club, WAC, I was selected for under 17 national team) and I was acting and performing

sometimes for my school and church, maybe it is a Gemini thing who knows  .

I kept on doing the things that I loved doing when I got to Brooklyn New York City. I continued school

and graduated from high school while doing music, performing and hanging out with friends. I went to

college and joined the U.S Army which was a great experience. I also met people who loved music and I

decided to take it to the next level.

Luckydabo$$ is also a certified Architect, Real Estate agent, an engineering Technician (Seagate, Dell

Technology), Major in Economics, Ex U.S Army Logistic Specialist, a linguist (Fluent in French and

English), President of the NGO Action Pour le Tier Monde. When I got out of the Army (August 2008), I took the driver’s seat to control the path that I wanted in

my life so I slowly worked my way up and purchased the things that I needed in order to break the

barrier.

I put my recording studio together and started to produce hits after hits.

It was a tough road. I met good and bad people during my journey and I do not think it will stop when

you have missions and goals.

Because of life experience, I called my single “Dedication” for anyone out there to know and understand

that in life you will reach your goals only if you associate yourself with people with the same mentality

and hunger for success.

Music heals souls and I will heal as many souls as possible with my music that’s why I chose to bless

people lyrically in both French and English and hope to reach a large audience worldwide.

I bless the POWER for allowing me to share this ability with the world.

Get ready to enjoy this new energy in music brought to you by Luckydabo$$.

Yovan Brindou Luckydabo$$

Preston Keith was born on October 17th, 1990 in a small town known as Rock Hill, South Carolina.
When he was 14 years old his Paw Paw gave him his first guitar which was a very old Yamaha electric
guitar. From that moment on Preston made sure to have the dedication it takes to teach himself how to
play. Growing up he always told himself, “If this is something that you really want then there will be no
giving up.” Preston Keith started out learning a lot of 80’s Hair Metal and Classic Rock songs even though
he was brought up on country music he eventually took influence from the heavier Rock genre.
At age 18 he began singing and songwriting. Preston says, “If I haven’t lived it then I’m not writing it.
Nobody wants a fake song, so when you hear me just know it’s real, it’s happened and it’s probably got me
in trouble and a few fist fights.” After writing several songs he decided to branch out into the public eye and
get into the gigging scene of his hometown. Til’ this day Preston’s favorite place to play is a biker bar, “It’s
just something about the atmosphere,” he says.
Aside from playing shows, he was also a contestant of American Idol & The Voice but preferred doing his
own thing so he kept to his songwriting. When it comes to songwriting he has always went against the grain
and tried to be different from other artists out there but still be himself as well. “If there’s a road less traveled
Hell I’m taking it,” he says.
Even though music has always been his passion and his dedication was always there, in 2017 he was
ready to call it quits. July 4th, 2017 his best friend Jason was in a terrible motorcycle accident and his stepmother
Kelly was battling Stage 4 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. At the time he was trying to raise money by
selling t-shirts to help with Jason’s medical bills and whatever the family may need. Along with that Preston
had also played a benefit concert to help raise money for his step-mother’s medical bills.
Preston said, “This is going to be the last show that I ever play.” At the time, everything that was going on
was just too much for him to bare. Preston had taken some time off from songwriting to be there for his
friends and family through those devastating times. Unfortunately, November 4th, 2017 his step-mother
Kelly had lost her fight with Cancer.
A few weeks after the funeral, he receives a phone call from a record label who had heard some of his
original music and was interested in cutting a full album with him. At first, from everything he has dealt with
in the past year he was ready to turn down the deal. He was dealing with depression and was in a very
emotional state. After about a month of really thinking about it he decided to take the offer. He said, “After
all these years of blood, sweat and tears, experiences, good times and bad, they are the reason I have
these songs.”
Preston Keith has also stated, he believes this first album is all because of his guardian angel in heaven
watching over him.

Rockland County NY based artist Marcus Charles is a man of many talents. Besides writing raps, he also plays the roles of producer and sound engineer. After dropping his self produced mix tape 'On A Hill, In The Trees' late last year, he is now back with new material. His first release for the year is the music video for his single "Action" which is an upbeat, energetic cut that puts the young emcee in his element. We get to see him traverse the under belly of Chinatown while kicking some heavy bars about his personal growth in the industry. Like the title of the song says, he aims to keep the momentum going with the mantra Say less. Action is the only truth

Hyde Out are a duo from London, UK. Their first album, "Technicolour Ghost" was recorded over a period of 4 years mostly in a garden shed at night time. The song "Nights" catches that mood, as it talks of embracing the cold London nights. Jaka mainly sings and plays rhythm guitar. Sometimes he plays other random things, like beer bottles on the psychedelic and catchy song "Talk to me". Omar plays mostly electric guitar, bass and keyboards; sometimes he sings too, like on the gritty vintage rock-inspired "Passer-by". Together they play all instruments on their album. When they met 4 years ago in West London, they were just enjoying strumming and singing together at parties. Then they started writing, just for fun. And then they ended up recording and putting an album together, with the aim of creating someting fairly eclectic that catches different phases of their lives. They like to think there's a bit of everything in their new release... From chill acoustic tunes like "Nights" and "Bring on" to sweet ballads like "Rain" and "Fluent in Silence", and from British-rock songs like "Open Chain" and "Hollow" to heavier pieces like "Over This", "Times" and "Speed Up".

One of the most impressive artists to breakout in the R&B field in the most recent years, is no other than Detroit's native K'Jon.  Many remember when the soul singing crooner broke through the radio waves with "On The Ocean”, a song that caught the attention of many including comedian/radio and t.v. host Steve Harvey, who help propel the song. K'Jon's 2009 CD, “I GET AROUND”, debuted #1 on the Billboard's Hip Hop/R&B Album Chart and his lead single, “On The Ocean”  catapulted to the to the #1 spot on Urban AC radio for six consecutive weeks.  "On The Ocean" spent over 75 weeks on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart, matching Mary J. Blige's “Live Without You” and Usher's “You Make Me Wanna”; making K'Jon's splash all the more impressive, since it was his independent efforts (Up&Up Records) and others that created the song's initial momentum. Fast forward and we find “The Ocean Man”  presenting his latest independent album release entitled, “Man”.  The album has attracted international exposure and landed his latest creation on the U.K. Soul's Top 30 list, peaking at #2.   The current CD “Man”, embodies the style of music that spans over five decades featuring a Motown / “Big Band” style.  Groundwork is underway to release a revised edition of "Man" in the United States featuring a remake of Marvin Gaye's “Come Get To This”.  Throughout the collection of vintage sounds, you will still find the voice many fell in love with. The well respected source for top independent artists worldwide, Soultracks.com has also highly recommended his latest works, describing the U.K. release CD as such:  “Man” is like running into an old buddy from back in the day and finding him more polished, more purposeful and with a little extra pep in his step!” - Soultracks.com.

While presenting a very artistic side with a vintage sound, kjonmusic has also managed to satisfy his original fan base with the consensus #1 stepping song in the country for most of 2015 in "A Beautiful Thing".  The song was added to iHeart Radio early in 2015; getting added to Chicago Radio as well (WSRB, WVAZ). The popularity of the song enabled K'Jon to travel frequently throughout the Midwest and also throughout the country opening up for such artist's like Jeffrey Osborn, Mint Condition, Eric Benet and many more.

Now, we find K'Jon gearing up for yet another commercial release with "Come Get To This", which looks to do very well on the Billboard Top 100 singles Chart (currently at #9 in only its 2nd week); also showcased at iHeart Radio.  After inspiring so many people with countless of uplifting songs (Will You Be There, This Time, Marathon) the past few years, his latest single and upcoming album release, without a doubt makes K'Jon one of the industry's “best kept secret” and gifted songwriters / producers.

After selling a million singles and over 500,000 physical copies of the album “I Get Around”, “On The Ocean” which still receives national air play is sure to attract original fans in support of his latest creations.  He's determined, he's focused..., he's back!!!

By May, after experimenting with sound and rhythm and drawing inspiration from George Benson, UB40, Earth Wind & Fire, Toto Donald Fagan, Bob Marley, Jodeci, D Angelo, Jaheim, Blackstreet and Sisqo, Te Mana soon shaped songs that infused various genres and ignited people's hearts to rediscover their roots and culture.

The foundation of Te Mana’s music has wholeheartedly answered their calling to represent diversity and to play an influential role in its movement into the future. And they have generated a presence on various social platforms, that have attracted artist from NZ and Australia to open their shows.

He was first discovered one day alone and homeless on the icy winter streets of Cleveland, hard and grizzled from rapping for spare change, hustling the corners and living on the streets. No one really knows his story or where he came from, one day he was just there. Rumor is a mysterious benefactor convinced him to serve out his time in county jail for a warrant so he could make money from his music legally. Then he was to go to rehab in exchange for the funding of a studio album. One year later he has an album in the bag and is releasing his first single “Dopeboy (feat. Queso Blanco)” Feb 08 2019. Whoever he is, he is a man revamped and on a mission. This is take two.
