O’SAY-  Flirt
Genre: Pop/R&B
Based out of Minnesota I am keyboard/piano player and have developed into a singer/songwriter/producer. I’m a college graduate with a major in Information systems but my dream is to do what I enjoy most, Music. I have been playing keyboard/piano for over 10 years now, starting out in the c hurch and moving into other genres such as Jazz, Blues R&B, Pop, Hiphop, Rock and others. The name O’SAY is derived from growing up people always remembered how to pronounce my actual name by the beginning of the Star spangled banner, “o’say can you see” this naturally led to me adopting it as the name to represent my music and my brand.

Band Name: Fiona Ross
New Release: Mistress
Genre: Singer-songwriter
My new album, ‘Black, White and a Little Bit of Grey’, explores the story of a husband, a wife, and a mistress: a web of emotions, of desires, of regrets, of ecstasy. Situations are not always as clear-cut as they may appear – not everything is black and white. Sometimes – when the victim becomes hazy, when pain and passion become intertwined — there’s ‘a Little Bit of Grey. The song ‘Mistress’ was a live vocal take in a stairwell at the studio and explores the heartache of falling in love with the wrong person.

Belinda M – Always Never… (You Know What I Mean)
Genre :  Pop / Singer-Songwriter
Named after Belinda Carlisle, solo artist and lead singer for The Go-Gos, creating and connecting to music has always been an essential creative outlet and place of solace for Belinda.

Her lyrics have been recognized by “American Songwriter Magazine” and her music is featured on award-winning “Women Of Substance Radio and Podcast” as well as radio across the globe.
