Lee England Jr.

'The Soul Violinist' Endorsed by Michael Jordan, signed by Quincy Jones, and supported by the likes of Sean “Diddy” Combs, Beyonce and Jay-Z; Lee England Jr. has without a doubt paved a unique path as a violinist. Although he is classically trained, he is claimed as “The Soul Violinist,” due to his stylistic blend of R&B, hip-hop, and soul. In addition to his mastery of this instrument, he adds viola, cello, bass, guitar, drums, piano, and voice to his arsenal of sound, allowing him to transcend artistic boundaries of traditional violinists.
In 2009, England cut his elementary school teaching career short to pursue his passion for music by auditioning for MTV’s “Making His Band.” Captivated by his extraordinary talent, the judges quickly changed the policy of the show to allow “non-traditional” instrumentalists to be considered; as a result, he landed a spot on the show as the sole violinist. Diddy named him the band’s “secret weapon,” and after gaining recognition from the show, he appeared as a guest performer on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Mo’Nique Show, performed in concert with Stevie Wonder and Babyface, in addition to opening for rappers Ludacris, Trey Songz, Jermaine Dupri, and Akon. During this time, he was also recruited to produce, compose and star in several BET commercials.
Shortly afterwards, England was invited to tour with R&B singer K’Jon. During a performance at the 2010 All-Star Weekend for Michael Jordan, Spike Lee, Russell Simmons, Dwayne Wade, and Gabrielle Union, K’Jon allowed England to take a five minute solo. England impressed the audience to such an extent that Michael Jordan immediately offered him an endorsement deal with his shoe brand, making England one of the first non-athletes to be sponsored by Jordan. Following the endorsement, England has become a well-known entertainer for a variety of events for athletes such as Chris Paul and Dwayne Wade, camps for LeBron James, and halftime shows in 26 NBA arenas. Most notably, he was commissioned to compose music for, and star in an NFL commercial for Super Bowl XLVII.
Emphasizing his belief in the power of the collective, he regularly performs with his orchestra and continues to educate children through his non-profit “Love Notes, LLC.” England is currently writing for his debut album, which reflects his addition of vocals, creating a completely new sound expected to be released late 2021.
You won't want to miss Lee perform LIVE, in the Foundation Room at the legendary House of Blues.

California-based singer/songwriter Jason Mraz's bio says he makes laid-back, melodic pop music with stylistic nods toward folk, jam band music, hip-hop, and soft rock. Since coming to the public's attention with the single "The Remedy (Don't Worry)," Mraz has proven himself to be a reliable pop craftsman whose crowd-pleasing melodies can encompass both cheeky humor and earnest sincerity.
Mraz grew up in Mechanicsville, Virginia with the sounds of the Dave Matthews Band and local roots musicians the Agents of Good Roots. However, it was Mraz's interest and participation in musical theater that served as his first introduction to music. Following high school, he moved to New York to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, but dropped out a year later when he took up the guitar and began to focus on songwriting. Nonetheless, Mraz's training as a vocalist would later show itself on his debut album, which was marked by the pure clarity of his tenor range.

EL LAGO is ready to explore new visions. ‘Pyramid’ intertwines their dream pop and shoegaze beginnings with notes of post-punk and new wave. Out now on Wallflower Records, ‘Pyramid’ takes bold steps in adding a darker element to their already pleasantly abstracted sound. Gaining much regional support with debut album Colors (2017), EL LAGO opened for Lætitia Sadier of Stereolab, The Black Angels, as well as the main stage at In Bloom Music Festival (formerly Free Press Summer Fest) for Sylvan Esso and more. The band closed out 2019 with a festival set at LEVITATION in Austin, Texas, and is currently writing new material for an upcoming release.
Swimwear Department, makes songs about two topics: swimming pools and shopping malls. The Houston, Texas dance-punk band brings party power reminiscent of Electric Six, The Presidents of the United States of America, and The B-52s. Fans frequently join enthusiastic shout-alongs and improvised line dances.
Houston audio/video engineer by day, songwriter and performer by night, Raycheal Winters creates tasty synth pop delights with a bent toward R&B. Her vocal influences include artists of many genres including but not limited to Halsey, Sky Ferreira, LP, Alanis Morissette, Hiatus Kaiyote, Jacob Collier and many others. With a combination of live and programmed instruments Raycheal has performed at a variety of venues including White Oak Music Hall, Warehouse Live, and the House of Blues. Raycheal craves the opportunity to connect with her audience, and she prides herself on sending a positive message through her knee drops on stage and a catchy chorus.
Input Output is a creative media lab comprised of Billy Baccam and Alex Ramos. They bring inanimate structures and spaces to life by combining art, science, technology, and architecture with the creative implementation of light and sound. Each bring innovative approaches along with unique human experiences that shape their artistic process. Together, they aim to make their mark on Houston and beyond by partnering with artists, institutions, and events such as Dream Machine, The Health Museum, Art Car Ball, Nuit Blanche, HUE Mural Festival, and Seismique Museum among many others to provide unique and novel experiences for people to enjoy.
