Funk music artist Cliff Beach has been performing live for more than 10 years in Los Angeles. The Berklee-trained singer/songwriter/keyboardist and DC native has created a style of music he coins as ³Nu-funk², a hybrid of soul, traditional R&B, funk and neo-soul which he performs regularly throughout Southern California. Last summer, Cliff released the highly anticipated ³Who the Funk is Cliff Beach?² EP, independently, which was nominated for three *LA Music Awards* including ³Record of the Year² and one *Hollywood Music in Media* award. Cliff also received national press in a featured live review in *Music Connection Magazine* in Nov. 2013 and was a featured performer at *TEDx Napa Valley* in March 2014. Cliff will be releasing an unplugged EP this September entitled, ³Stripped Down & Unplugged.² For more on Cliff and his music please visit www.cliffbeachmusic.com.
Alex Nester: In an industry saturated with fly-by-night singles, auto-tune madness, and packaged artist-development, Alex refuses to conform and instead brings back the musicians to the art of music-making with her highly anticipated 2nd album, #BurnItDown. This album can only be described as a Hell-hath-no-fury collection of original music chronicling her trials and letdowns with the state of music business today. But the industry is not the only factor surrounding the creation of this musical tour-de-force. Alex’s bout with cancer has helped shape her unique sound filled with messages of love, faith, positivity, and healing while channeling the retro soul artists of the 60’s and 70’s... Which only makes sense as she is currently touring as a backup singer for Tito Jackson (of Jackson 5 fame) and has opened as a solo artist for such acts as Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, The Rascals, Evelyn “Champagne” King, The Stylistics, and Dave Mason. Her resume already includes 12 albums, countless jingles, and over 25 theatrical productions, as well as working with established musicians such as The Four Tops, The Fifth Dimension, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Desi Arnaz, Jr., Alphonse Mouzon, Brandon Fields, and Eric Marienthal. With her extensive resume and list of world-class musicians surrounding the making of her music, it’s no wonder Alex has been featured as an artist to look out for by The Los Angeles Music Awards, The Hollywood Music in Media Awards, CDBaby.com, Soultracks.com, TheUrbanMusicScene.com, and various publications and soul music radio stations from around the world. As the music industry settles for what's "safe", Alex will continue to push the boundaries of music making. #BurnItDown is a musical testament of loss and hope, failure and triumph. It is a promise to the listeners that her music will never be anything less than sincere and honest. And most importantly, it's 100% Alex Nester groove!
