Stella Groove - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
Stella Groove
Stella Groove is what we'd like to call a 90s Baby in the 21st Century kind of artist. Back in the 90s/early 2000s, you had the likes of Mary J., Kelly Price, 702, En Vogue, Shanice, Sade, Faith, Whitney, TLC, SWV, the list goes on, but what they all had in common was that they actually made you FEEL what they were singing about. They showcased the different layers of love through their words, melodies, and powerful voices. That feeling is exactly what you get whenever Stella Groove hits the stage. She doesn't just sing, but she "SAAANNNNGGGGGGSS HONEY!!" With her 2015 self-titled album already under her belt, she's keeping the momentum going into 2018 with her new project "All of Me" released on Feb. 6th.
Minnie Lea - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Minnie Lea
My name is Minnie Lea, and I am a female hip hop artist. I’ve been rapping and singing since I was young; music is a huge passion of mine. I’ve also performed at many venues in Athens, Georgia such as the Georgia Theatre, the Downtown Athens human rights festival, Hendershots, World Famous, Iron factory, Club Vanish, Club Venom, and I was nominated for the 2017 Athens hip hop awards as best new upcoming artist. I have a lot of knowledge about music and have a lot to offer to the music industry.

Ke Turner - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Ke Turner
Born in Jacksonville, FL and raised in Virginia Beach, VA, Ke Turner began sharpening her ear for music when she used to make up impromptu songs to her father’s guitar playing. Along with her older brothers, she would often to listen to hip hop greats such as Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick and EPMD just to name a few.

This gave her a strong foundation that would later serve her well when it came to crafting metaphors, similes, and thesaurus scrolling wordplay. Her love for MC Lyte as well as other notable female emcees like Roxanne Shante, Nikki D & Antoinette, would let her know that being an unstoppable estrogen filled force behind the microphone was completely possible.

She honed her skills by participating in many ciphers and open mics where she gained many listeners and a strong buzz throughout Hampton Roads. This lead to her joining an all-female group called ‘Gypcees’ where she went under the moniker ‘Ghagged’. They garnered a lot of attention on the east coast and opened up for an array of artists from Redman, Wyclef to the Roots to name a few. They also worked with notable producers such as Joe City, Pete Twist, Nottz and Superb where people are still discovering their classic records to this day.

After the group disbanded she began her solo journey eventually relocating to Atlanta, GA where she performs and records new music on a regular. She has also connected with an arts guild called ‘Fresh & Local’ which is a collective of creatives and like-minded individuals that collaborate on a consistent basis.

Aside from steadily working on her craft, Ke also helps manage an online radio station called OYL (Out Your League Radio).

This allows her to spin upcoming artists and provide a platform for those who have their own podcasts.

Ke’s sound remains nostalgic yet very refreshing. She doesn’t like being put into a box but believes that staying true to the roots of boombap and having bars is what continues to open up the doors for her. Ke Turner is an artist that wants to see the balance come back into the mainstream and her goal is to help make that manifest.
