BJ the Chicago Kid
Three-time Grammy nominated R&B artist, BJ the Chicago Kid, is the purveyor of new soul steeped in history. His smash-hit debut album, In My Mind, was preceded by years of inspired work with R&B legends and stars like Stevie Wonder and Lalah Hathaway, hip-hop heavy hitters like Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar, spanning back to his first major foray into professional music with gospel duo Mary Mary. His ability to amplify the soul in any song has led to collaborations with music’s best and brightest, including: Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Chance The Rapper, Schoolboy Q, Musiq Soulchild, Joe, Mario, and west-coast legends Warren G and Xzibit. In My Mind has been touted as “a soul record with all the ingredients that make R&B great: emotion, sex appeal, spirituality, vulnerability” by NPR Music and “a restorative (and very necessary) spirit to an emotion brushed under the rug in the scape of today’s millennial music” by Vibe magazine. Songs from In My Mind are Grammy nominated for Best R&B Performance (“Turnin Me Up”), Best Traditional R&B Performance (“Woman’s World”) and the album itself is nominated for Best R&B album. The highly anticipated forthcoming album by BJ the Chicago Kid will be released this year.

Ro James
Born in Stuttgart, Germany to a military father turned preacher, Ro James found himself moving around for most of his childhood. From Indiana, California, Hawaii, Oklahoma to the place he now calls home, New York, music was always in the forefront of James' life. His musical inspirations come from the sounds of Johnny Cash, Prince, Tupac, Jodeci, and more. Since his emergence in 2013, Ro James has worked with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Brenmar. That same year he also released an EP trilogy: Coke, Jack & Cadillacs, which received critical praise from outlets such as The FADER, The Source, VIBE, and HypeTrak. Since then James has been covered by outlets including NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series, Interview Magazine, Rolling Stone, Us Weekly and more. Noisey calls his music, "a subtle blend of smoothed out, soulful R&B..." and Billboard declares "James' sound is reminiscent of the greats, think Prince meets D'Angelo..." Combining these influences with his journey, he has crafted his best work to date on ELDORADO. Released, May 27th, James' debut album ELDORADO entered the charts at #3 on The Billboard R&B Albums Chart and #8 on the Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums Chart.

ELDORADO’s lead single, the sultry “Permission” topped the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart for 10 weeks and earned James his first ever Grammy nomination for R&B Performance. He also earned a nomination for Best New Artist at the 2016 Soul Train Awards where he delivered an electrifying performance of “Already Knew That” and “Permission.” With the release of ELDORADO, his soulful grit, impassioned vocals and clear vision as an artist, Ro James is defining his place in music and continuing to share his journey along the way.
