Joseph Soul

Accomplished Nightclub DJ
Los Angeles, CA

Considered one of the most versatile music aficionados to come out of Hawaii, Joseph Soul has been commanding crowds for well over 15 years. Highly touted as a nightclub DJ, his expertise spans more than the distance between two turntables. With his accomplishments as a producer, engineer, and songwriter widely recognized, it is no surprise that he currently earns a living doing just that.

With experience penning songs for Nesian N.I.N.E and Dani Waring, producing the smash hits, “Take You Higher” from Positive Motion and “Tell Me” by Tenelle, and mastering Maoli’s 2010 album “Rock Easy”, it should come as no shock that he wrote, produced, engineered, and mixed his first album almost entirely on his own (DJ Audissey - Overdue). He collaborates with both up-and-coming artists, as well as, seasoned veterans and is constantly searching for new talent to help break into the island music scene. As his alias, DJ Audissey, Joe was highly sought after as a nightclub DJ in Hawaii`i, with victories in Mai Tai’s Hot Island DJ Spin-Off, as well as, the 7-11 / Dave & Busters DJ Battle in 2010. After a stint in Las Vegas, where he was a nightclub DJ at venues such as Tryst and VooDoo Lounge, he now resides in California where he is currently working on an EP.

Andrew Bloom

Musician/Singer/Songwriter
Los Angeles, CA

Ask 18 year old musician/singer/songwriter Andrew Bloom what THE most important motivating factor is in his life and he'll look you straight in the eye with a great set of baby blues and say, “Well, it's to play, it's just. . .to play.” Don't be confused though. He does agree that the ultimate goal of the game is to become a star by topping the charts with a hit song, but until that happens, all he wants to do is play music! Oh--and not just in his living room for friends and family. Not even just for a panel of judges on a Reality T.V. competition American Idol. No, what Andrew means when he says "to play” is--to produce music for an audience of people in a concert hall or pub, to entertain, and to get paid for his efforts while doing it. For the record, that's what he means! Interestingly, he is able to accomplish “just playing” on a regular basis, and perhaps it's due to Bloom's style and genre which set him apart from other kids his age who are making an attempt to break into the biz. Yes, he is a Pop Music kid, but he infuses it with old-school elements from some more traditional genres like Classic Rock, Funk, R&B and Soul. Now we're talkin' appeal for more than one generation.
