We spoke to Roy L. about his music and life and this is what he had to say:

"Born and raised in what is now statistically the worst city in America per capital. Monroe, La. Raised by a single mother while my father fought his demons from the Vietnam war. My mother only had one other child, a daughter, who was five years older than me so by the time I became a teenager, I was an only child. Same song, different melody. The pain of being alone and abandoned caused momma to withdraw and seclude herself while I found attention in the streets and music to relate my pain. I grew up literally writing down Tupac and Nas's lyrics and unbeknownst to me at that time they'd plant seeds of events and people that would influence me heavily in my later teens early adulthood. Served in the Army. Lived in Europe as a civilian. Twice. Done two separate prison sentences in two separate states. My last bid, I truly found Allah. And he found me. Music is my strength, my refuge, my conduit, it's how I exorcise the demons withIN. In no way do I glorify or seek vilification from my audience. I just write my heart".

Sauvi DuVin is no stranger to the music business. A very humble R&B Singer and songwriter with an amazing, powerhouse voice, Sauvi DuVin was far from a new voice on the music scene before her latest project. Her sound and vibe mirror that of artists like Sade, and she’s been compared to those of the likes of Amel Larrieux. She grew up idolizing and many of the legends, including Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Toni Braxton, and several others.

​Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, a political science undergraduate degree from Georgia State University, as well as a product of Grady High School (Atlanta, GA), Sauvi DuVin began singing at the tender age of nine (9) years old, when she won her first talent show at Webb Bridge Middle School singing “If I Ain’t Got You Baby” by one of her idols, Alicia Keys. Her parents and grandparents kept her in church each and every Sunday, and it was only natural for her to use her gift to give glory to God in the church choir.

In 2017, she began singing with a live concert band called “The City”, managed by Jerome Derrickson, formerly of the group Zapp and the current tour manager for Maze ft. Frankie Beverly. In September 2017, Sauvi, as part of “The City” opened up for Maze f/ Frankie Beverly and the Isley Brothers at the Verizon Theater at Grand Prairie. After switching to Ametria Dock as her vocal coach, and changing her music director to Brandon A. Thomas, Sauvi began to blossom and come out of her shell bringing her powerhouse voice to perform covers by artists such as Corrine Bailey Rae, Estelle, and Ariana Grande!

​In 2018, she continued to tour with “The City” while preparing and reinventing herself to launch her own solo project. She teamed up with Willy Hendrix, co-producer of Missy Elliott’s hot single “Throw It Back”, and began recording tracks. In late 2018, she released her first single “Shade” under the name “Amber Makayla”.

In 2019, going by the name “Sauvi DuVin”, with the help of her parents (her dad an Entertainment Lawyer and Founder and Owner of the rising shoe entity “DevawearLLC” in Atlanta), formed her own entertainment label, BAM Entertainment LLC, and is scheduled to released her first smash single “Luv For You” off her forthcoming albumscheduled to be released in early 2020

Anthony Scott's new single is exactly what it's supposed to be: Intense. Cinematic. High-energy.

Like all of his music, Anthony Scott pulls from his life experience - triumphs and hardships alike - to portray a vulnerable yet Featuring production from J Philly, one of Scott's go-to producers, we're given an eerie yet enticing choir melody behind a gritty baseline and bright, looping synth pattern.

Scott begins the song with the hook, telling us the way it's supposed to be in his mind - essentially: I'll look out for you, you look out for me, and we can both get this money together. With a laid back flow Scott enters the first verse offering different ways he and the listener can relate to one another and find common ground.

Scott teams up with long-time collaborator Mxlcxlm Z for another song with depth and emotion over a high-energy instrumental. Z's usual wordplay shines through and encourages listeners to focus on peace and hustle hard for what they desire out of life.
