I started writing music and experimenting with different sounds when I was about 12 years old. My mom and grandparents got me a set of drums and I would sit in front of MTV all day creating beats. I started performing once I got into middle school. I had many solo performances and used those to also work on my singing and harmonizing.
My first release was during my first year of college. I went to the studio and recording this rnb song and mixed it with pop elements. Once I dropped on SoundCloud, boom the song was a hit. Continue Reading Meet Fitch Means
I am an only child and I fell in love with movies when I was very little. They would keep me company and I would go everywhere with my portable DVD player and my discs (before we had smartphones and movie streaming!). I loved to rewind my favorite scenes and learn the lines. That is how I figured out that I wanted to be an actor. I started acting in 4th grade in the school production of The Lion King Jr. A few months later I was asked by an art class to be on a segment for PIX11 News called “It’s a G Thing”. Seeing myself on TV was so cool and I decided I wanted to take acting more seriously. I started taking classes and found out about the acting websites where work is posted. Thanks to that, I started getting background roles and I learned what it s was like being on real sets. I have worked on many short and indie films and through someone we met on a set, I was able to be a series regular on the web series “Facts of Life” on YouTube.
In 2019, I was nominated for a Young Entertainer Award and a Young Artist Academy Award for my role in “A Thursday Drive” which can also be seen on YouTube. I won the Young Artist Academy Award for best teen actor in a short film and it was such an amazing moment. It really made me feel that I am on the right track. This year I was focusing on my freshman year in high school and haven’t done too much acting. I was cast in the spring play at my high school but we had just started rehearsing before they closed the schools for COVID-19. We will now do that play in the fall instead I hope. While at home I have been lucky enough to be a cast member on “The Quaran-teen(s)”, an IG TV show which has been a lot of fun and I was cast in a short film “Don’t Keep Me Waiting”, which I am filming from home.

Growing up in Long Island, I was surrounded by greatness and everything that came from it – Like EPMD, RAKEEM, CRAIG MACK, KEITH MURRAY, and BIZMARKEE. Seeing these greats from my city conquer how they did, I knew that I could take the world by storm and make an impact. So, I started writing my own rhymes, finding ways to get into the studio, and performing wherever I could find a mic and stage.
After many years, and many struggles, my mom and my brother packed up and settled in Spring Lake, NC. Life was easier there, and it gave my mom the opportunity to raise us better. I hated seeing my mom struggle, but that just ignited a bigger hustler in me, so I knew I had to tap into me more – and I did.
After working petty jobs to help my mother hold down the house, I knew there had to be better. I did it all from washing dishes at a college, flipping burgers at Mcdonald’s, and valeting cars. I was hurt, broken – and I put all my downfalls in one painful song. The next morning, my Accapella went viral, big music platforms were reposting me, and I got hit up by a gentlemen who said I remind him of the Notorious B.I.G. Not thinking much of it, he then sent me a flyer saying they were looking for an actor to play “BIGGIE,” in a new television series
I auditioned and eventually would win the heart of one of the producers who decided to fly me in to test for the role – in Hollywood. After two nerve-wracking auditions in front of Hollywood’s top executives, I went on to book the role and that has then launched my career in Hollywood.

Like many artists, I have been singing since and performing since I can remember. My dad was an opera singer and was really involved in the church, so I remember singing in church when I was as little as 6 and taking piano lessons at the age of 7. I am from a small town in Maine so there wasn’t a ton of opportunities for performers, but any chance to get on stage at local community theatres, sing in girl choirs, sing the national anthem at local games, take singing lessons and dance lessons, you named it and I would do it. My dream was always to be a professional singer since I can remember. When most kids were playing sports, going to parties, and hanging out with friends, I was either at a rehearsal, lessons or performances.
When I turned 17 and it was time to discuss college, deep down I really wanted to go to music school or go to the city to follow my dream of being a singer. But my parents and community were very apprehensive to doing anything outside of the norm, so I was told to go college and get a “realistic” degree like Business or Communications and get a “normal” job because singing was only for fun, not a career. So I quit singing, went to business school, got my degree, and got a job in Corporate Medical Sales. My corporate job brought me to Stamford but I found myself becoming severely depressed, I gained 50 pounds and started taking up drinking regularly, taking prescription meds and smoking up to a pack of cigarettes a day.
After almost 8 years of not singing or performing at all and becoming almost a shell of myself, I worked with an energy healer who saw the reason I was so lost was I was not practicing what I loved. I started singing lessons the next day, posting my journey on social media, and now a little over two years later I am a professional singer and performer. I’m the lead singer of the “9 of Hearts” Dance Band, I train with Manhattan Comedy, Upright Citizens Brigade, and Groundlings in improv and stand up comedy, and regularly takes the stage in both regional and Off-Broadway productions. Most recently, I released my first original single “Can’t Be the Only One”, now available on all streaming platforms, and was named one of the “Top 5 New Internet Comedians to Follow in 2020” and a “New Rising Artist to Watch” by New York Weekly.

Even when I was little, acting was my passion. I used to put on little plays, give out tickets, and make my parents and friends watch me perform. But as I got older, as much as I wanted to entertain people, “reality” set in and I gave up my dream being in front of the camera. I still wanted to be part of the world I loved though, so I opted to find other avenues to feel connected to the industry and ultimately earned a BFA in film/drama with a focus in film production from Syracuse University. When I graduated college, I tried many different types of “behind the scenes” jobs to break into entertainment. However, with each opportunity I felt less and less fulfilled and after three years, I finally left the business all together and decided to go back to school to become a teacher (which was another dream of mine). I taught middle school for 15 years and for 10 of them I also taught drama. In some ways, I felt I was still part of the industry, I was just teaching others to act instead of doing it myself. After a while, my students began asking me practical questions: What is is like to be on a big set? What is it like to be on a large stage? How can I be on television? But because I never had an opportunity to do it myself, I didn’t have any answers for them. Then one day I decided it was my time. No more excuses, no more second guessing, I needed to go out there and at least try or I would regret it forever. I joined a local theater group, I worked background on some TV shows in NYC, I started to act in short films, I was in commercials, and I even started taking acting classes myself. Immersing myself in this world made me realize that there were roles for all types of people and it WAS possible for me to be in front of the camera, rather than behind. That next school year, I was no longer teaching drama, I was actually performing myself. In the short time that I have been living my dream, I have won two awards for acting (Best Actress in a Dramatic Role and Best Supporting Actress in a Short Drama), something I NEVER believed would happen.

So during my time in college, I’ve always had high aspirations for myself in the music and fashion industry, but I just didn’t really know the correct way to execute, or in what way I would intertwine the two. So I put out some hats first, and from there was the start of all things I have humbly accomplished through All Hail.. Continue Reading Meet TJ Burrowes of All Hail Worldwide
I’ve been into fashion and style since I was about seven years old, but didn’t quite realize how strong my love for style was until my sophomore year of high school. My senior year of high school, I got a job in the fashion department at a local Kmart. And more often than not, it consisted of folding and unfolding clothes, which I wasn’t a huge fan of, but it also consisted of customers asking me how they would look in certain pieces and I fell in love. I knew from then on I wanted to be a stylist, I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. Continue Reading Meet Chi Ilochi of StylingByChi
35 years ago I recieved a terminal diagnosis. I was told I had one year to live. I realized that I had been living my life for others and was determined that I would spend my last year doing what I had dreamed about since my mother took me to the Corning Museum of Glass when I was 8 years old. I decided to work in glass, my true passion. For 10 years I was told that I had one year to live. This meant I became obsessed with furthering my skills before I died.
Then one day I realized I wasn’t going to die in a year, so I began doing something with my skills. Continue Reading Meet Tim Tate of Washington Glass Studio
