  • Recording Rap Artist Bka Takari on new singles

    in Hip Hop Music

    His legal name is Jarod Takari Mason but  go by BKA Takari. He came up with the name one day just on some humbug. BKA came up and Takari is my middle name, hence the alias BKA Takari was born and raised in Hampton, VA on December 5, 1993.
     “What influenced BKA ?”  His brother. Growing up always looked up to him. BKA wanted to be just like him.  Would always sit and listen to him rap in ciphers with his friends and watch him write music and rehearse took a liking to artists such as Jada Kiss, Beanie Seagal, BIG, and a few others.
    BKA started taking music seriously in 2019 when he came home from prison. BKA  wrote a lot of music while he was on the inside. BKA  moved to Georgia about two days after release. One day BKA  received a DM on Facebook from the CEO, Ms. Lisa Marie, of Worldwide International Records asking me to sign with them. BKA jumped at the opportunity and to continue to write and work on perfecting his craft. 
    BKA has done a plethora of shows. BKA did two in Atlanta, GA; one for Myafton and one opening for Rick Ross, and the rest in his home state, Virginia. If he had to give an estimate of how many shows done in total, BKA  would have to say at least 20 and I’m looking forward to adding more to that number.

  • Joy Keys chats with Singer Michael Mayo

    in Music

    Whether Michael Mayo is performing with his band, as a guest, or alone with a looper pedal, the LA native’s commanding and other worldly vocalese is quickly gathering critical and commercial acclaim around the globe. Born to two successful musicians, Mayo grew up just a little more than 20 feet from the likes of Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Earth Wind and Fire, and Stevie Wonder. This proximity helped Mayo create a musical path centered around elements of R&B, Soul and Jazz, forging his musical identity long before he hit the stage. Mayo attended the acclaimed Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, only the third vocalist to be accepted into the 20-year-old program, where he learned from the likes of Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. Now living in Brooklyn, and still in his 20s, Mayo is a veteran international performer whose highlights include singing at the White House, the Kennedy Center and Renée Fleming’s American Voices Festival, as well as the Panama Jazz Festival. Most recently he has recorded and performed with Herbie Hancock, Jacob Collier, Kneebody, Gretchen Parlato, Josh Groban, Ben Wendel, and Becca Stevens among many others. His own band performance was a standout at the 2019 Playboy Jazz Festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival, and Monterey Jazz Festival. Signed to Mack Avenue/Artistry Records, Mayo’s debut record BONES, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Eli Wolf (Norah Jones, Al Green, The Roots) was released on June 4th, 2021.
