and has successfully met every single one. Her hot new songs herald the
arrival of this very special young artist. Her music will “move your

catchy hooks and lovely melodies. Their addictive songs will get under
your skin and into your heart. They have been described as taking the
best parts of rock & roll from the past, adding a little funk, a
little Cali surf and molded it into something modern that still captures
that same feeling as listening to Beatles or the Rolling Stones for the
first time.

TARA LEE
Tara Lee is a breath of fresh air. An exciting new
artist who is well-rounded and electrifying! She's originally from VA,
but has quickly adjusted to the big city life. Dancing was her intro,

teamed up with producers Sergio Vega (The Deftones, Quicksand) and Jim
Williams (Maximum Penalty) a.k.a- The Jingle Brothers and is turning
heads as we speak!

ELAIN
Born in San Antonio de los Baños, La Habana, Cuba,
Elain taught himself to play the guitar and started singing at the early
age of 7. Today, Elain has carved a name for himself as one of the
most relevant singer/songwriters in the Latin market. His style is
defined by unique lyrics and original music fusion of pop and latin with
a mix jazz, bossanova, flamenco and other rhythms. Elain just recently
launched his second album, “El Disfraz de La Luz” under his own label
Melomania Productions. In this new álbum he offers his listeining
audience 14 songs written by him and in cooperation with other very well
known Latin composers’ Jorge Luis Piloto and Pepe Horta.

SCARLET FURIES
The Scarlet Furies has a curious history.  Back in the
70’s, the 5 male members of the band went to high school together in
Whittier, CA and formed assorted bands for about 5 years – among them
The Yanks and Eulogy.  Years past and the guys went their separate
ways.  When Robert’s 20-year-old daughter, Raleigh, moved to L.A., her
agent asked her to put together a vocal showcase to show off her crystal
clear alto.  Robert sought out his old band members to back the gig and
an eerie magic was made.  Knowing a good thing when they heard it, The
Scarlet Furies was born. Raleigh brings her waifish, Audrey Hepburn
looks and a vintage Southern Gothic sensibility to the band’s style. 
Her lyrics come from some deep, dark place.  The guys' instrumentation
and arrangements are determinedly rootsy and acoustic, layering textures
of riffs and vocal harmonies. 

LUCI MUSIC
Drawing on her Peruvian roots, Pop singer/songwriter
Luci offers a pop-driven sound that is infused with both Latin, R&B
and funk. Beginning in her childhood years, music was an integral part
of Luci’s life. Throughout her time as a student at Oral Roberts
University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Luci began playing the guitar and
recording her songs, several of which she wrote with friends. She also
performed at various venues around the greater Tulsa area and had the
opportunity to open for a variety of national bands performing in the
area. She draws her unique style from a sea of influences varying from
Celia Cruz and Christina Aguilera, to Aerosmith and Stevie Wonder.


SHELBY REESE
This 17 year old dynamo can sing, play the piano,
guitar, write, act and speak Mandarin Chinese! Born in England to a
British mother and an American father, Shelby began to hone her talent
at the early age of four and even at still the tender age of 17, she has
turned some heads in the entertainment industry with her performance
and songwriting skills, collaborating with high profile songwriters,
musicians, vocal coaches and recording studios in San Diego, Los Angeles
and Nashvile.

CROSSED KEYS
Crossed Keys came to life in the winter of 2007 when
vocalist Jaimis Ulrich, guitarist Preston Radomsky and drummer Bryan Bos
crossed into "The Keys" of music. "The Keys" unleash the power of the
beating drum, pounding bass, cutthroat guitar and penetrating vocals.
With the addition of rhythm and lead guitarist Adam London and bassist
Greg Amparan, Crossed Keys has now recorded their second album TERRA
FIRMA. With four songwriters blending rock, country, pop and emotion,
Crossed Keys has etched, in a short time, a manifestation of honesty and
passion delivered with unbridled energy. Jaimis Ulrich takes command.
In both her recordings and live performances, her emotionally charged
vocals and captivating stage presence deliver more than mere words.
Crossed Keys has been noted as a breath of fresh air to the Los Angeles
music scene.

DON PREACH
Born in New Jersey, the son and grand-son of a
preacher, Don Preach was instilled with the belief that positive thought
and action can shape the world around you, though not a belief easily
learned. His much anticipated CD, “My American Dream” , which will
include the award winning song Hero, is the symbol of this movement, and
one that recognizes the good deeds and character of everyday people.
Honing his talent for the past 10 years as an artist and producer,
Preach started STEALTH MODE ENTERTAINMENT, and has collaborated with
national and local artists and producers, including Grammy Award winning
SHANNON SANDERS (credits include India Arie), GHOST KASEN (production
credits include JA RULE, ASHANTI, IRV GOTTI, JENNIFER LOPEZ, MARIAH
CAREY, MARY J. BLIGE, and JANET JACKSON.

ALEX NESTER
With years of professional experience, with profound
life experience, Alex is doing what she was born to do: SING! But she
doesn’t just sing...she writes, she creates, she communicates. Blending
gospel, jazz, R & B, funk, and blues, her music is soul music that
comes from deep within and out through her extraordinary instrument. She
sells a song with a depth of expression that could only come from a
blend of unbelievable, unique raw talent; honed through unusual unique
musical experience; sifted through powerful, unique personal trials. And
now it all comes together for this amazing, young musical giant. As we
finally see the release of her 1st album, get ready...Alex Nester is
definitely...UNIQUE

THE FLUTTERBIES
The Flutterbies are Los Angeles’ hottest alt-country
upstarts. Fierce and fashionable, lead singer Maureen Davis fronts the
band with a dusty, honey smothered voice that oozes sass and soul. The
Flutterbies’ Maureen first came to public attention as part of the
original cast of the Tony-winning Broadway musical Into The Woods
(starring Bernadette Peters). After touring Japan and Russia with
renowned jazz vibraphonist Gary Burton, the diminutive diva capped her
New York career performing at Carnegie Hall before running away to the
circus: the Hollywood rock scene. Soon after arriving, Maureen signed a
publishing deal with Mastersource Music, brainchild of Wayne’s World
actor/musician turned film music entrepreneur Marc Ferrari, quickly
securing multiple song placements on hit TV shows such as House, Dexter,
and My Name Is Earl. In 2007 she became vocal instructor at Santa
Monica’s School of Rock/Rock Nation, teaching kids to wail like rock
stars. And in 2008, Maureen toured America singing raw gospel with
Michelle Shocked before forming The Flutterbies. A smooth lyricist with
a sultry delivery, Maureen sums up her life and her band: “For me, it’s
veni, vidi, voce—I came, I saw, I sang… I flutter by.”

REDSTONE HALL
Led Zeppelin meets The Beatles meets The Doors - raw,
yet intriguingly melodic.
That’s Redstone Hall - an American band based in Los
Angeles, whose sound is built on a foundation of classic rock but
incorporates an exciting array of contemporary rock, pop, and jams
ingredients. The band began playing at venues in the greater Los
Angeles area where they became known for their improvisational jamming
and energetic live sets. Lead singer Steven Rothstein hits the
keyboard with crazed madness and acoustic guitar with a fresh and
delightful sensitivity, captivating the audience with his untamed
charisma. Guitarist Zack Hall‘s mesmerizing solo riffs brings back the
essence of pure rock. Bass player Mac Hadar nails every note. Drummer
Mike Nussbaum has soul on his beats. At their young age, they know how
to drive a crowd into a frenzy.
