Born in Hinesville, GA, 13 year old Ja'Juan Graham dreamed of always becoming a Drummer/ Musician. Jajuan became fascinated and played drums at the very young age of 4. When he was 8 months old his eyes were glued to the hit movie Drumline. "To this day I watch Drumline as if it just came out yesterday" laughed Jajuan. Since then drumming has become his biggest passion. Ja'Juan practices everyday and says " I listen to all kinds of music such as Gospel, R&B, and Rock, anything really"."I study how the other drummers such as my idols Tony Royster Jr and Travis Barker play".Ja'Juan played his first gig at the age of 9 in Kentucky playing with two high school students, where they played at local restaurants and did studio recordings at Heartland Studio. In 2011 he was given the opportunity to audition for TV show Americas Got Talent which he stated "Mom this is only the Beginning" with a big grin on his face. That opened up many doors for him. He since then has played at talent shows, recitals, and showcases in Atlanta,GA and Columbus,GA. He also played at vendor fairs on army base FT. Benning, GA."I feel as if I'm in my own zone when I play drums" stated Jajuan. At age 11 he played in a jam session with Columbus State University Jazz Ensemble to which he was very excited to do.At 12 he was blessed to join and play with Jersey Surf Marching Corp at the Alamodome in San Antonio TX, which he said "I was really nervous at first because I didn't know how I would fit in with professional drummers, but I got the hang of it and blended in with the others and it was the best experience ever!!" He then went on to lead the Kids Mardi Gras Parade in El Paso TX and has done shows in the area. Spreading sweet music and the gift that God gave me, I will continue to bless people with what I love best...Drumming!Catch Ja'Juan's work on YouTube

Coming from a management background before deciding to embark on his own music career, Moosh Millionz shows us his smooth R&B style, strong vocals & production mixed with a great subject matter.

The song "Because Of You" is a clear reflection of life lessons and wisdom, where he thought he would be vs where he is now because of his one true love. It speaks of being in a relationship and developing each other's strengths. "Because Of You... I'm stronger than ever. Because Of You... I will give up never" This track exemplifies how much a man's life can change when they are in the right relationship with a women who helps put them on and keep them on the right path. I would like to hear more of Moosh Millionz work! Rating: Production: 4.5 stars Vocals: 5.0 stars Feeling: 4.5 stars An R&B track's true strength, to me, comes from hearing the singer's heart and soul in the song. This track is packed with both!

Subject Matter: 5 stars Overall Rating: 4.75/ 5

Moosh Millionz has created a timeless love song which captures the heart and makes you want to hold your special someone in your arms and tell them all that they mean to you. Solid track... Congratulations Moosh Millionz! ~Kellie Leigh, Founder, # ArtistsUnited Worldwide Independent Music Community

Nessa Dove Nessa Dove is a great Canadian artist who is currently rockin' the scene in NYC! Just a few sounds from her electric guitar you will feel how awesome she is. The song we chose to review is "Make Believe" due to it's inspirational message of being able to create your own world. When you play make believe, and your mind believes it, you can achieve it. Thinking is everything in life! "Make believe... 'til I see... what I need.. there for me." We need to hold onto our highest vision for ourselves and "never ever ever let it goooo" Nessa's work is amazing and I'm sure you will feel that too when you listen to "Here We Go" on Bandcamp! We give Nessa Dove a glowing 5 stars for her voice, the song's strong message, the feel of her music & her overall style! We look forward to catching her LIVE as well in some of NYC's hottest venues! Check her out now!!!! http:/ / nessadove.bandcamp.com/ releases

Assisted Living's instrumental melodies hearken back to the glory days of classic rock, when guitarist John Madeiro and drummer Steve Hennesey first picked up instruments and discovered their unique? and long-lasting? sense of rhythm. In 1978, their very first band, Paragon, was invited to audition for an opening act on The Eagles' nation-wide tour. Tragedy struck two days before the audition, however, when their lead singer suddenly quit the band. In the years before the Internet, no quick replacement could be found. Paragon's meteoric rise came to an abrupt end, and John and Steve separated until 1981, when they reunited with a new vocalist to form full-blown southern rock band Mythology. Their second effort gained rapid popularity throughout Texas, both for their blues-based anthems and the professional production Mythology brought to venues all across the state. Though poised to reach even further than their first attempt, Mythology also suffered a fatal blow. In one two-week stretch of 1985, three of the band members were forced to relocate to other states; here again, in the days before the web, the band could not continue with most of its members flung far across the country. Steve moved to California, where he spent a few years moonlighting as a studio drummer. John decided to hang up the guitar once and for all and focus on his family instead. Both men lost contact for nearly thirty years. For the first twenty, music took a backseat; in that last decade, however, both men dusted off their instruments and began to shake off the rust. John dug up his acoustic and spent several years writing music, while Steve sat back down with the drums. Both moved in and out of bands and small side projects, but they didn't reconnect until 2013, when a chance encounter online reunited them for a jam session for old time's sake. Immediately, they rediscovered the friendship and rhythm that had laid the groundwork for Paragon and Mythology so many years prior. A one-off jam session became a weekly event, and the two friends capitalized on the latest technology: recording high-quality productions in home studios, creating their own music videos, and crafting a unique sound from their own whim and strong musicality. AirBorne debuted first, both a nod to their own storied struggle with music and their simple desire to just have fun. Assisted Living, tongue-in-cheek from the start, emerged shortly thereafter, finding critical success with their next track Wishful, which took home an Akademia award in May 2015 for Best Instrumental/ Rock song. The classic rock anthem Trapped was soon to follow. Both AirBorne and Wishful have accompanying music videos. Each feature the distinctive green 'running man' from Assisted Living's official logo, and each have outperformed all expectations, garnering thousands of views across the internet. A third video to accompany Trapped will be released summer 2015, and will raise the bar even higher. Assisted Living's next track is already in the works, and will debut first on the band's official website,

DELRA HARRIS LYRICS " PLEASE SPEAK TO ME" (Written by: Delra Harris)

PHONE CALL: " PICK UP, PICK UP, PICK UP, PICK UP, C'MON I NEED TO TALK, OH NO, NO HEY, IT'S ME, UM, I JUST REALLY NEEDED TO TALK. I REALLY, REALLY NEEDED TO TALK TO SOMEONE. IT'S JUST ONE OF THOSE TIMES WHERE YOU, YOU START TO WONDER AND YOU QUESTION EVERYTHING. YOU START TO QUESTION IF GOD IS EVEN REAL, DOES HE EVEN HEAR US. AND YOU BEEN TAUGHT THESE THINGS ABOUT FAITH AND YOU DON'T WANNA GIVE UP AND YOU'VE BEEN DOING EVERYTHING THAT'S RIGHT AND YOU WONDER, WHY AREN'T THINGS WORKING OUT THE WAY I THINK THEY SHOULD WORK OUT AND ALTHOIUGH I KNOW ALL OF MY FAITH AND MY TRUST SHOULD BE IN GOD, I SOMETIMES HAVE QUESTIONS."

VERSE 1: WHAT DID I DO, ARE YOU MAD AT ME DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG I'M SO TIRED OF TRYING AND GOING THROUGH IS THERE REALLY POWER IN YOUR NAME HOW MANY TEARS SHOULD I CRY AND HOW LONG WILL THIS BE? HOW MANY TIMES SHOULD I BEG YOU FOR YOU TO HEAL ME, BEFORE YOU HEAR ME IF YOU REALLY LOVE ME, THEN WHY NOT EASE THE PAIN I NEED YOU LORD TO HEAR ME, I WANT THIS PAIN TO GO AWAY VERSE 2: IF YOU REALLY CARE ANYTHING ABOUT ME (IF YOU REALLY CARED) THEN WHY CAN'T YOU SEE I'M WHAT IT'S PUTTING ME THROUGH (WHY CAN'T YOU SEE WHAT I'M GOING THROUGH). I DON'T KNOW THE REASON THIS IS HAPPENING TO ME (DON'T KNOW) AND I DON'T KNOW THE REASON IT HAS TO BE, OHHHH IF YOU ARE REALLY GOD THEN SHOW ME, SHOW ME IT'S HARD TO TRUST SOMEONE, WHO'S FACE I'VE NEVER SEEN SHOW ME WHO YOU ARE, SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT, SHOW ME THAT YOU ARE POWERFUL. HELLO ARE YOU THERE, HELLO ARE YOU THERE YAHOOOH ALL I NEED TO HEAR IS A WORD, JUST SOMETHING FROM YOU (SOMETHING FROM YOU) VERSE 3: (ILLUSTRATED VOICE OF GOD) MY CHILD I'M HERE I'VE HEARD EVERY WORD THAT YOU SAID, AND SEEN EVERY TEAR YOU'VE CRIED. I'VE FELT THE PAIN, ALL THE PAIN YOU'VE ENDURED HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN WHAT I DID SEE I AM THE ONE WHO, WHO DIED UP ON THE CROSS FOR YOU I AM THE ONE WHO GAVE, MY LIFE SOOOOO, DRY YOUR EYES, REALIZE I'M HERE FOR YOU (OH OOH I AM) I'VE TURNED WATER INTO WINE, GIVEN SIGHT TO THE BLIND AND NOW IMAGINE WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU BUT YOU'VE GOT TO TRUST ME, AND YOU'VE GOT TO HOLD ON I KNOW THAT YOU CAN SURVIVE. HAVE FAITH IN ME, TRUST IN ME, BELIEVEEEE YOU NEED TO KNOW, I'LL NEVER LEAVE, DON'T EVER FORGET, I'M ALL YOU NEED

J OHN COX - STORY OF GLORY REVIEW BY K ELLIE L EIGH

Stor y Of Glor y r eally caught our attention when Singer /Songwr iter John Cox sent it to me. He is r anked #1on Rever bnation in the Chr istian Rock categor y in Gr eenville, NC, and I can definitely hear why. The melody of the song flows beautifully with the sound of his guitar . John's voice is r eminiscent of Paul Simon and John Mayer , and using his talents to wor ship God make this song & his wor k speak dir ectly to my hear t. The Stor y Of Glor y is about the way that it feels and sounds to call out the name of Jesus "What A Beautiful Sound!" "God has given me the inspir ation to wr ite songs and enjoying the gift of music. Always a diamond in the r ough, the Lor d never gave up me and His wor d keeps me going. ~John Cox "His wor d tells me to go for it:" Psalms 56:4 "In God I will pr aise his wor d, in God I have put my tr ust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me." You can find his wor k on Revebnation by clicking her e. We look for war d to following your jour ney, John. God Bless! #Ar tistsUnited
