"BIGGER than the image. Photographs are an important part of our world . Time travel as we know it has not ever been achieved, but ask anyone who sees a beautiful portrait of themselves. Most likely they can tell you what was happening in their life, how they were feeling, and what the weather was that day."- Flysaiah

"With his hometown of Chicago on his back and the sounds of soul in his roots, R.O.E. blends an urban vibe with poetic lyricism and music that hits straight to the heart that will attract anyone with an affection for alternative hip hop.
Since his early days, R.O.E.’s message has revolved around an inquisitive boy-meets-world mentality with self-aware storytelling illustrating his everyday. On something bigger, something better, R.O.E. vibes a stirring and meaningful portrayal of life while pushing naysayers aside and Rising Over Envy.
In 2011, R.O.E.’s debut EP A Backpacker Named R.O.E. piqued the interest of Chicago-area fans and blogs immersed in the hip hop scene and started to entice radio spins with its soulful beats, unconventional hooks, compelling lyrics, and independent sound. With the debut marking his official foray into music, the EP’s concept was simple: introducing his essence to the world. Its success would lead to video projects, larger shows, and nationwide tours. After building a foundation for his sound, R.O.E. dedicated the next couple years to growing his fanbase, collaborating with acclaimed producers, songwriting and offering the ultimate live experience with his full band, The Soulvillians.
The long-anticipated 2014 release of the To Happiness EP chronicles the Chicago emcee’s mindset since A Backpacker Named R.O.E. and lives up to expectations with his signature artistic flow, clever writing, and the natural chemistry between the lyrics and beats. The 5-track EP’s cohesive vision delivers a short, yet rich and experiential trip through what it’s like to be him: an established artist traveling, reaching, living, and not letting negativity get in the way.
Today R.O.E.’s focus is on playing shows, touring, and producing videos to promote To Happiness while working on his first full length album."

Artist Bio:SOUND is an adventurous talent. His 90s R&B roots, acappella choral training and fascination with connecting us all, are all presented through his music with a harmonic groove that soothes. Born in Baltimore, MD and raised in the low-country of South Carolina and suburbs of Northern Virginia, Stefon brought his sound and lyrics to Brooklyn, New York in 2013. Self-Producing “A Sound Project: The Covers” in 2013 as a one-man acappella group, Stefon began to make his rounds to the local open mics on a weekly basis, honing his performance presence and landing various artist spotlights. It was at these open mics, that Stefon got involved with the local spoken word artists and poets. This was an element he desired to hear intertwined throughout his own compositions.
He spent the next 4 years continuing to perform throughout New York City and Philadelphia, PA, including an annual summer, Sunset on the Hudson, pier gig where he is accompanied with acoustic guitar, in front of an audience of 200 people for 4 nights. During this time, he also began to work with writer Jayson Youngblood, performing for his R&B Night showcase and starring in the music video for his song “Help Me”, garnishing over 4,000 video views on his facebook page.
Stefon released his first EP, entitled “Appreciated” on June 9, 2017. The EP is a brief presentation of the commitment and love that one should embody in order to rise to the occasion of a relationship with good intentions. The sound and tone is upbeat and ballad. Celebratory and thoughtful. He hopes that when you hear it, you have fun and are reminded to show appreciation for the special ones in your life. (source:stefonsimmons.me)
