Elan Trotman
Jazz Sax-Man Elan Trotman is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Trotman has toured and recorded with an A-list of artists that include Jeffrey Osborne, Jonathan Butler, Roberta Flack, Earl Klugh and Keiko Matsui. With over 10 Billboard singles to his credit as an independent artist, Elan continues to be an ambassador for fusing his native music of the Caribbean (Barbados) with jazz and soul. In 2014 Elan founded the Barbados Jazz Excursion & Golf Tournament in support of the Never Lose Your Drive Foundation, which provides free instrumental music lessons to elementary school students.

Althea Rene
Althea Rene began her musical journey at the tender age four in Detroit, MI. She studied classical music while attending Howard University in Washington D.C. and later gained further musical inspiration from the accomplishments of Yusef Lateef, Ian Anderson, and her father, one of Motown’s original Funk Brothers, Dezie McCullers. She has since developed her own creative style. In May 2013, she released her fifth project “In The Flow”. That single and title track became her biggest hit and reached number one ranking on both the Billboard Chart and the Smooth Jazz Chart. Althea Rene made history by becoming the first flute player in the history of Billboard Chart to reach the number one spot.

Ashling Cole
Ashling Cole also known as Biscuit hails from the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Area. Her transformative live performances are legendary and inevitably take you on a musical journey; spiritually and emotionally. She spans worlds of R&B, jazz, funk, and gospel effortlessly. Ashling currently tours with legendary bassist Larry Graham as the lead singer of Graham Central Station and has recently joined Sheila E’s Glamorous Life tour.
