Fragile Soul is a modern mix of soulful heartfelt vocals with blues and folk rock influences. Being compared to City and Colour, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Kings of Leon they bring a unique energy to somber lyrics that resonates with their audience. Starting as a singer-songwriter duo, the group has expanded their sound by adding a drummer and bassist. They have recently released their EP “The Runaway” in July 2018 to showcase their full blues rock sound.

It started in an airplane from Kunming, China to Hong Kong. Suri was deciding whether she wanted to take a piano teaching job away from Chicago, where she was born and raised. As fears of failure, and worries about her insecurities rose to the surface mid-flight, she knew she couldn't make a choice at that very moment, but she knew one thing for sure, and that was to write a song. Between the yes and No, she had to write the song.

Suri is still connected to her classical music roots, but has performed as a Jazz singer and as a folk/pop artist. She’s recently teamed up with producer, mixer Taylor K. Phipps for her latest project “As I Am”. The EP is a fusion of Suri’s sweet vocals, poetic lyrics, and piano themes with the electric, synth feel. She may not know your story, but she hopes you will find that hers resonants with yours.

Sexy, confident, sensual, musical, chill, and vibrant are all words to perfectly describe the style of 22 year old Shantina Lynet' (pronounced Len-AY), a singer, songwriter, and performer from the south suburbs of Chicago. She was born into a large family and has been doing music since a young age. She’s been singing in church with her family since the age of 4 but was also heavily influenced by artists of other genres such as Drake, Chris Brown, and Jazmine Sullivan. She received her bachelors in Theatre and film from Western Illinois University in December 2017.

In 2016 she released her debut EP, #Stuvibes, which started her journey as an artist. Since the release, Shantina Lynet’ has released other works, one of them being her newest single, Chanel Covered Hearts, released March 1st, 2018. Her album, 10,000 Hours is what fans can expect next. Shantina Lynet’s goal with her music is to inspire other people and bring back musicality to mainstream music. “I want people to know that you can be GREAT at what you do, and as long as you are perfecting your craft-whatever that may be- you can do anything.”
