AZAF
My name is Cedric Wembe G. a.k.a AZAF, I am a young recording artist from Cameroon, living in Johannesburg. I love soccer and I am not married. I am 32 years old and music is my passion.
The song is in French and the title is Je dois finir (ZA-ZNJ-20-00001) meaning I have to finish.
About the song
The song is an encouragement to never give up regardless of what people say, think, see, feel, about us and do to us. It also does not matter how much life throws at us, we must keep our heads up and never give up for we are engaged in a race which we ought to finish; this mindset is what will give us the strength necessary to finish the race.

Music Submission, Harry Edohoukwa

Artist or Band Name: 
Harry Edohoukwa

Dallas native, Harry Edohoukwa is rooted in melody and committed to innovation. Raised on Jamaican smooth stylist Beres Hammond and Afro-reggae messenger Lucky Dube, Harry follows his mentors by using tuneful, personal deliveries to convey his purge of emotion and insight, whether it be hyped or brooding energy. His lyrics paint a vivid canvas of his life’s journey through triumph, agony, and personal lessons.

Family and immersion in the present moment with others are focal points for Harry’s daily life. His parents emigrated from Nigeria many years ago in pursuit of creating a different landscape for their children than what they were presented with. A very tough move for them to make and adopt to a completely different lifestyle, language and general societal expectations. Even though he was born and raised in Dallas, Harry holds true to his roots and family values.

However, his road to becoming an artist has not been an easy one. His parents, having sacrificed so much for their kin, expect a career path of stability and respectable wages, such as a doctor or engineer. For Harry, his heart has brought him down a different road. While it has been a struggle not only internally, but also with his parents, Harry knows that these challenges of life purpose and parental support exists in many other people. He is here to share his story and triumphs, hoping to inspire and challenge others to face their moments of growth head on with fierce energy.

Named by the Austin Chronicle as one of this year’s Must See Artists at SXSW, Harry headlined the Hotel Vegas stage with Jackie Venson and White Denim, as well as headlining KUTX’s premiere Austin Hip-Hop showcase’s SXSBREAKS and Love Lockdown. Becoming one of Austin’s premiere artists in under a year, Harry has expanded nationally with shows at Los Angeles’ Peppermint Club, nearly sold out show in Dallas' Double Wide and at Denver’s biggest music festival called The Underground Music Showcase.

On December 11th, his debut album titled, Fire on the Mountain was released. The album, speaks about the human mistakes he has made, in fact the mistakes that we all have made. He voices the small light of hope that exists in each of these mistakes that propel us into being excited about the present moment and the future moments to come. Harry falls into this feeling after his mindset shifts from focusing on the mistakes made and self-disgust to learning and self-love.

Music Submission, Born Soul

Artist or Band Name: 
Born Soul

Born Soul, born name Kelly Hancock from Austin, Texas, came into the music industry head first as a recording artist, song writer, producer, and sound engineer. Born Soul is Influenced by groups such as Souls of Mischief, A Tribe Called Quest, and Outkast. He was discovered by a record executive while playing his demo for a friend. The executive agreed to fully finance any recordings for Born Soul to piece together his first album. Born Soul released his first album titled From the Beginning to the End. He, along with two partners, established the publishing company Musik Innovator / Hip Hoffee House.

Steadily gaining comparisons to Andre 3000, his oxymoronic, melodic indie-hop sound is induced by distinctive kick drums, clear annunciated vocals and smooth synthesized sounds. Born Soul is the product of the modern age. Born Soul is the sound of musical evolution. Born Soul is the embodiment of the post-genre world. Born Soul is music styles being meshed, music and prose finding new ways to work together, the rule book being torn apart and previous tribal lines of demarcation being crossed, ignored and erased. Latest album, BadLandz, is set to release January 10, 2020.

Music Submission, MN Moder

Artist or Band Name: 
MN Moder
Born on the first day of June in the beautifully diverse port-city of Duluth, Minnesota; Zachary Moder (aka MN Moder), is not your typical 26 year old. In addition to sharing stages with members of Bone Thugs N Harmony as well as Tech N9ne, Twista, Project Pat, DJ Paul, Mystikal, Devin the Dude, Obie Trice, Lil Wyte, JellyRoll, Kutt Calhoun, Chris Webby, CES Cru, ¡MAYDAY!, and Rittz (amongst others); he has also acquired educational experience from multiple collegiate business programs and independently recorded a collective of over 300+ songs with guest verse appearances across numerous mixtapes and albums.  After years of hard work and dedication, he released his first full-length LP titled “Modervation” in June of 2019 along with an EP titled “Continuum” in September of 2019 through his company MidCoast Music.
 
Moder served 4 years in the United States Army as a 19D Cavalry Scout (Combat Reconnaissance) in addition to working many odd jobs and at one point even drug dealing prior to fully investing into his personal musical and entrepreneurial dreams as well as his own potential. Through trials, tribulations, and challenging life obstacles these experiences have helped mold Mr. Moder into the person he is today. These experiences help strengthen his willpower, re-fuel his determination, and urge him to always rise above the situation to this very day.  Each hardship survived has contributed to the awakening of a passion within his heart. His passion burns hot; focused on helping everyone by means of motivational messages within and outside of his music, he delivers it with what he refers to as “Optimistic realism” or “Modervation”.

Artist or Band Name:

Hello Music Director,
Hi we are contacting you to submit two new singles from underground emcee "gLife" for your listening pleasure. The song "Meant to Be" was released October 25, and "Firewalker" has a release date of December 13th. Below is a short bio for the artist, two short song descriptions, and download/streaming links. We really hope you enjoy gLife's unique style of rapping and singing mixed with melodic deep music. We would love to send you any more material such as photos, logos, mp3's, etc. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Matt G.
 
BIO: gLife, aka GeorgeLife, is a prolific veteran MC based out of Salt Lake City, UT. He has created a truly unique blend of singing and street-wise lyrical rhyming. His sound has been compared to the "grime" and "hardcore" hip hop sounds of La Coka Nostra, Jedi Mind Tricks, and Eminem; along with the singing style of Nelly, Eamon, and Bone Thugs. Through non-stop consistent hard work he has toured the world with artists such as Madchild, Slaine, and Adlib; as well as reaching #4, #5, and #8 on the USA and Canada indie charts. gLife is an indie powerhouse to be reckoned with. Catch him on his 11th major tour this Spring on the Break Rules Spread Love USA/Canada Tour with Adlib and Space Kamp. 
 
MEANT TO BE: This newly released song was written and recorded by gLife while on a twenty-date US West Coast tour, and talks about life on the road. It starts immediately with the catchy "Mac Miller style" hook leaving you wondering is he truly happy, or just as happy as he CAN be? The smooth beat gets even better with the live violin from Master Q (on every song).The rap is a soft mellow flow, with the heartfelt singing that has made gLife a regional legend. 
 
FIREWALKER: This unreleased song was written and recorded by gLife while in Arizona on tour with AZ legend DJ 001, utilizing his renowned scratch skills and production for the song... add in the live violin from orchestra-level string-savant Master Q and the song starts slick and comes in hard. The "Johnny Cash style" singing over the hard hitting lyrics of pain and loss create an honest one-of-a-kind sound from this innovative touring artist.
 
Meant to Be: (released Oct 25)
