Saleem & The Music Lovers
Born and bred in Baltimore, but infused with universal appeal, has opened for Common, The Roots, Talib Kweli, KRS1, Rakim, De La Soul, Slick Rick, The Wu-Tang Clan, Little Brother, and Fertile Ground to name a few; performing in prominent metropolitan venues as well as rocking the mic intimately in café-like coves throughout the East Coast since 2004. As the writer and producer of his 17-track debut album Hip Hop Revisited, and with the release of an acoustic/spoken word CD with folk artist Caleb Stine titled Outgrown These Walls, Saleem has been described as the “embodiment of hip hop’s evolution.” Bringing balance back to hip hop” is Saleem's objective. With continued performances throughout the Baltimore/D.C. area, he continues to attract a diverse listening audience eager to explore hip hop’s higher plane.

A Long time Hip Hop fan since the days of Run DMC and BDK, Sin* started on his path as a music producer and emcee back in 1991 in Baltimore, MD by forming a hip hop group called The Rhythmical Society. In 2005 Sin* started up his own production company. Since then he has produced for such acts as Tha Scholars, Topix, Big Ri, Prodigal and San Man and now serves as the bass guitarist in the band Salim and the Music Lovers.

Lavar “Topix” Green has been a part of hip-hop culture since its inception. He started out as a fan, but quickly moved to the role of participant when he began painting graffiti throughout the metropolitan areas of Baltimore. As fulfilling as that was, he felt that there was more he could contribute to the culture and so he began writing. Presently, Topix boasts a host of collaborative efforts to his credit working with artists from the states and overseas. His latest collaborations include work with underground super producer Wendel Patrick and Japanese producer Robert De Boron

A talented singer, musician, songwriter and producer. As a child, Tangela's parents exposed her to a variety of quality music. She recalls being a little girl, listening to Anita Baker and Chaka Khan on her parent‘s record player. She knew every single song word for word. She began playing the piano at the age of seven, violin at the age of eleven, and by the age of twelve she was a full time church musician. Although she is classically trained, her musical influences are very diverse. Along with classical, jazz, and church music, musicians/producers such as Madlib, Jay Dee and Nicolay have heavily influenced her musical perspectives/expressions.

Growing up, Deborah spent most of her early childhood years in Nashville, the home of Country and Christian music. She started piano lessons at age 4. She pursued a Bachelor’s in piano performance from James Madison University, and then went on to finish a Master’s at Arizona State University. When she graduated in May 2009, she began exploring what she loved about music on her own terms--keeping composers such as Chopin and Rachmaninoff near her heart. She took a few improvisation and jazz courses while at school, and to this day still loves improvising and listening to artists such as McCoy Tyner, Ahmad Jamal, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Louis Armstrong.
