When you take into consideration the fact that he was born in the Caribbean country of Haiti, raised on the streets of Brooklyn, NYC and influenced by musical legends ranging from various genres like Hip-Hop, reggae, gospel, rock etc. you’ll come to quickly understand why King David doesn’t take too well to the labels given to him. As a self-declared Hope Dealer, the titles of rapper, singer, entertainer or producer fail to fully capture the musical soul of this complex man. As a humbled worshiper and follower of Jesus Christ, David’s journey has taken him to extreme highs and lows but the one reoccurring presence throughout it all has been the connection between his faith and the studio.

AMANDA ROSE RILEY
Amanda Rose Riley has a special way of cutting through the noise of everyday life with her music.
Guided by a career-defining persistence, determination, and an appetite for making her dreams her reality, the New Jersey-born-and-bred artist has spent the last few years showing the world what she has to offer, creating eclectic acoustic songs and performing primarily in New Jersey, New York City, and England, her second home.
Armed with her guitar and the desire to touch the lives of her listeners through her songs, Amanda released her first studio album in March of 2018. Through these lyrics and melodies, she hopes to speak to her audience in a similar way as how her favorite artists have influenced her. “The idea of making people feel something and having a positive impact on them is the number one motivation that keeps me going,” she says. “Honestly when I daydream about ‘success,’ instead of picturing money and huge gigs, I’m always imagining the connections I will have with people. I see how much my favorite songwriters have inspired me and the people I know in so many ways: listening to those songs is cathartic, we get the words tattooed on us… it changes our lives. I think seeing and experiencing that kind of power that a song can have is what inspired me to make music the most, out of everything.”
