 "This is more than a music release party,” said Ty Tabing, Cultural Affairs Director. “It is a celebration of the creative spirit and culture thriving in Pompano Beach. Nurturing young talent, providing them with professional support and the opportunity to shine is an important part of our mission. We are very proud of all the artists and the extraordinary creative team that worked to make this EP happen.”

The Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department and The Round Table orchestrated this project to showcase emerging South Florida performers while capturing the essence of Pompano Beach through the voices of these rising stars. The EP features a total of 7 songs including one group collaboration. The cost of downloading an individual song is $1.29 per song or $5 for the entire soundtrack. All platforms including Spotify and Apple Music will be showcasing the EP. At the event, QR codes will be available to direct guests to the music sites. In addition, a limited number of CDs will be handed out at the listening party.

The creatives represented on the EP include: Yasmeen Matri, who is a singer-songwriter with a remarkable four-octave vocal range; Darnielle Thomas, an artist, teacher, and entrepreneur who creates an exciting mix of Hip Hop and Soul; Jonas Arthur,  a gospel and soul singer who looks to bring meaning and purpose through his music, Azrael Haze, who grew up listening to current day hip-hop and oldies and now blends genres with an other-worldly sound; and Matt Kelly, a musician and music producer whose focus leans towards guitar-based music and live instrumentation, creating fusions of hip-hop, R&B, electronic beats, and soulful guitar melodies.

Joining the emerging artists on the EP is Sarahca Peterson, a prodigiously gifted spoken word artist, whose company, The Round Table, spearheaded this project. “I am so proud of this beautiful collaborative effort,” said Peterson. “Our city is represented in this endeavor by some of the most talented up-and-coming creative souls that I've met in a long time and I am thrilled to have the world hear this EP!”

The expert production team assembled to facilitate and guide this extraordinary work includes music producer, certified audio engineer and composer Aaron Verrett, engineer David Kennedy and singer-songwriter Lyriq Tye. The EP was recorded and mixed at Power Station in Pompano Beach.

The Ali Cultural Arts Center is located at 353 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, Pompano Beach, Florida.
