Jaguar Wright

It's all about the live performance for Jaguar Wright, the newest artist from The Root's Motive Records imprint. Part Ella, part Millie, and all uniquely soulful, her voice and her performance are both unforgettable. Picture this: she takes the stage, her shirt reads "Kick Azz" embroidered in gold. In the front row, die-hard fans cluster to absorb the ruckus and joy that comes with every Jaguar performance. In a few minutes Jaguar has almost cried over her cheating lover and now is pantomiming her revenge she rages on. "Singing is healing for me. It gives me a sense of myself, a feeling of order. My life makes sense when I sing," explains Jag.

MC Lyte

ON Sunday, October 6, 2002, MC Lyte took center stage on the scene of her video shoot for her soon-to-be released smokin’ single “Ride Wit Me,” off the upcoming album “Underground Heat Vol. 1”, which is scheduled to be released late-January 2003. The album is a joint venture between SGI (Lyte’s label) and Creative Music Management (Lyte’s partner & manager). The label is being distributed by Imusic/BMG.

Adding another video to his list of credits is INDRA—a cat who, though new to directing, has worked with the biggest names in music.

The video was shot in downtown LA, with cameo appearances by a whole gang-a-folk—Lyte’s peeps were DEEEP—Da Brat came through and did-da-damn-thang! Along with, Eric Sermon, Queen Latifha (YES, the Queen herself), the lyrical Neb Luv (5 Footaz). Also giving mad love were Kyla Pratt (Breanna on UPN’s One on One), Sicily (Spirit—Breanna’s best friend), Isaiah Washington (Ghost Ship, Exit Wounds, Soul Food), J. August Richards (the brother on ‘Angel’—yes! And he’s from D.C.!!), Elise Neal (Paid in Full, Brian’s Song, The Hughley’s). And of course we can’t forget our girl Tichina Arnold (One on One, Big Momma’s House, Martin), with her stylish China Moon Rags (go on wit your bad self)! On top of all that ‘star power,’ puttin’ it down for our “ghetto Joan of Arc” were a bevy of friends and loved-ones who came down to participate, help out and lend a presence to the shoot!

The Jazzyfatnastees, Tracey Moore and Mercedes Martinez, began as a quartet, signing to Tommy Boy Records in November 1993. "At that time we sang forties style harmonies over jazz loops and break-beats. We wanted to have three-part harmony plus a lead vocal. Basically we wanted to be able to do anything we did on record live and in person," explains Mercedes. Her brother J. Swift (producer of hip-hop group the Pharcyde's first album "Bizzare Ride to the Pharcyde") helped pen their name. " The Jazzy lyrics, the fat harmonies, and the nastee tracks, it's all about the music," says Tracey. In that spirit, the Jazzees have also collaborated with Stevie Wonder, Michelle N'degeocello, Outkast, De La Soul, Blackilicious and Eric Benet. In 1995, shortly after the Tommy Boy deal dissolved, they met hip-hop legends The Roots. After doing a series of opening spots with the band in LA, they were invited to do some guest vocals on The Roots! ' album "illadelphhalflife." Seduced by the creative energy of the city and inspired by their warm welcome into The Roots' musical family, the Jazzyfatnastees decided to make Philadelphia their home.

Jocelyn B. Smith

Jocelyn B. Smith was born in Queens, New York on August 22, 1960. Her parents Joan and Kenneth recognized her passion for music early. Jocelyn started classical music training at the age of 5.

Through her classical training an interest in Soul emerged. Some of Jocelyn's first musical experiences include singing with Lenny White (former drummer for Miles Davis) on "Return to Forever" his first solo LP. Then later toured with him in Europe.

A year later in 1982, Jocelyn toured with the band "Change", which opened up for Rick James as he toured the United States. During that tour Jocelyn became friends with Lisa Fischer (whom received a Grammy for her work which was produced by Luther Vandross. Lisa has also toured with the Rolling Stones) Their friendship remains today. Another joy was singing with Ellen Foley (former Meatloaf singer) while touring with Electric Light Orchestra in front of up to 80,000 fans.

In 1984 during European tour "Tribute To The Platters" Jocelyn decided to stay and live in Berlin. "Berlin is a large, multicultural city like New York, and first of all alive!" exclaimed Jocelyn. Jocelyn has worked with Falco and Tangerine Dream since living in Berlin. But she never lost sight of her dream of a solo career.

" ... a truly enjoyable experience ... Jocelyn B. Smith is truly a singing sensation to be reckoned with ... "
(The New York Voice/ March 18th-24th, 1993)


"Poetic delivery with musical intent" - that's what singer-songwriter Marsha Ambrosius and emcee-songwriter Natalie Stewart call the fusion of soul and spoken word that is Floetry. Their anthem, "Floetic," serves as the first radio track (and title track) of their debut album. "We put floeticism into everything we do. We are two opposites on the planet coming together and making something real creative happen," Ambrosius says. "Love songs today seem to be about arguments and breaking up, and the club songs are all about getting one over on someone else,? says Stewart. It's like, come on, I just want to be happy for someone. We don't deny the difficulties in life, but we want to say something positive, too."
