February Hill from Atlanta, GA began singing at the age of 3 and has had very intimate conversations with God since a very young age. Her music didn’t reflect her passion for God until she was a young adult leaving her feelings in her rearview to sing about Gods’ goodness. She has partnered with Jehovah Jamz Records to teach through song, but most of all, she teaches through her intimate relationship with God.

She is a multi-talented pastor, singer, praise/worship leader at New Creation Christian Fellowship in Stone Mountain, GA and songwriter who released her debut project “A New Creation” in 2022. Some songs include “God You Make Me Wanna”, “Queens & Kings” feat. JSIII, and the heartfelt worship song “Hear Me”, to name a few. She looks forward to ministering at churches, venues, and community events to inspire people to seek a connection with God.

The mother of two beautiful young adults, Genesis and Corey Brown, is always willing to share her experiences, so that it may bring someone to Salvation or hope. Her tremendous gift to sing is allowing audiences to recognize her talent and show the world what God reveals through her music. This talented creative keeps a certain perspective at all times which is to be God-centered, family focused, and willing to teach when God allows her the opportunity to minister His good news.

Some musicians begin their bands and their record labels in a home garage, or basement studio, but Joseph “JSIII” Smith III, driven by his passion for making music, began while a Sophomore at Purdue University. A native of Miami, Florida, who has lived in Georgia since 1994, has a long history of involvement with the music business.

A disc jockey on the college campus and in night clubs around Lafayette, Indiana and Atlanta, GA, he continued in the business as an “on air personality” at Radio Station WRFG-89.3, in Atlanta, GA.


JSIII founded Mindstate Entertainment Records in 1995 and launched the careers of several independent secular artists but secular music was not his calling as being an instrument for the word of God has taken over. Music is in his head, hands, feet, heart and mind. In music, he finds his joy and peacefulness, for this artist/producer/songwriter, a new independent record label “Prophetic Entertainment Records” was created with Michael “Gifted” Upshaw in 2003.

Prophetic Entertainment Records released two Christian rap projects entitled “Keep it Moving in Faith” and “Faith is the Key” recording as the Christian Rap duo Q.W.E.S.T. (Quintessential Wisdom Edifying & Seeking Trinity). They traveled and ministered for almost ten years leading many souls to the Lord.

JSIII proudly professes the most high, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as his sole inspiration for living.

His God giving talent to write/produce/perform music, to minister the word, and spirit filled messages has shined brightly. In 2016, God gave him the vision to create his latest venture with his wife Patricia Taylor-Smith. Jehovah Jamz Records and Smith Tay Entertainment LLC will be a shining light to discover new talent for the kingdom of God highlighting different genres of Christian music.

This newly formed record label will be an outlet for Christian messages with a strong emphasis on the business side of the industry, whereas most artists concentrate on performing. “To maintain longevity in the business, artists must have knowledge of all aspects of the business, which will allow artists more creative control and an outlet to pursue other facets of the industry”. – JSIII

One of two siblings of a multi-talented musical family raised by a Baptist minister in Indianapolis, Indiana, Derrick ‘D. Roq’ Muncie found his musical voice singing in church and studying classic gospel, soul, and R&B records. It was his immersion into these records and gospel hymns that years later would provide the musical roadmap and artistic aesthetic for D. Roq & Bulletproof Soul.

D. Roq was an athlete growing up; however, he found his true calling when he picked up the trumpet at age 12; later learning keyboards and other instruments. D. Roq was a natural, blessed with impeccable timing and phrasing influenced by his love of jazz, specifically Miles Davis. D. Roq played in R&B bands, soul ensembles, and jazz outfits while always returning to the church to play on Sundays. D. Roq’s “10,000 hours” would occur at a regular jam session he hosted at the Mousetrap in Indianapolis, a musical safehouse for musicians from the Indy’s otherwise disparate jazz, R&B, jam band, and rock scenes. There, D. Roq became the de facto emcee, musical director, and curator. The ‘Trap shows close with a furious funk/soul/jazz improv that goes into the wee hours in the morning mesmerizing audiences. D. Roq incorporated his own original music into the weekly set, which over time became the most popular numbers. Soon after, D. Roq & Bulletproof Soul was gigging five nights a week headlining club dates and appearing at jazz festivals supporting D. Roq’s musical heroes.

D. Roq decided it was time to properly record his songs, so he enlisted the GRAMMY®-nominated production team of Marc Johnson and Eric Klee Johnson, both of whom he knew since growing up together at North Central High School. The result is a stunning 12-song LP titled “Cover You in Chocolate” slated for late-2021 release on Indie 500 Records. The team entered Indianapolis’ The Pop Machine recording studio, known for their work with artists like Chrisette Michele, Rita Ora, and John Waite. Many of the songs were co-written by producer Marc Johnson who provided the musical foundation that showcases D.’s artistry.

D. Roq’s voice calls to mind vintage Donald Fagan meets Lenny Kravitz, while the tracks honor the legacy of Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, and Sly and the Family Stone and informed by the sounds of new “alt R&B” like The Internet, TV on the Radio, and Toro Y Moi creating a sound uniquely its own. Some songs confront social justice like “Don’t Shoot Me” (written months before the George Floyd tragedy), “Claim to Fame”, and “Father’s Eyes”; others are just straight up bangers like sensual “Stop the Ride (Put Your Boots On)”, “Ryders”, the dub jam “Smoke Fiend Sally”, and “We Come to Have Fun”. D. Roq is at his best when he sings from the heart and represents with jams like “Cover You in Chocolate”, “Miracles”, and “Be Cool (Chateau Marmont)”. D. Roq and Bulletproof’s songs put a smile on your face, make your heart sing, and your booty move.

D. Roq’s backing band “Bulletproof Soul” is a who’s who of Indy jazz musicians featuring Rob Dixon on saxophone (Ray Charles, Charlie Hunter), Byron Johnson on alto sax, B3, and Mini-Moog (son of saxophonist Pookie Johnson), Goldie Ingram on background vocals, and Cathy Morris on violin. D. Roq & Bulletproof Soul stands to be counted as part of Indianapolis’ rich musical history that dates back to the jazz of Wes Montgomery, Freddie Hubbard, and the smooth R&B of Babyface embracing soul, jazz, and R&B to create an original soulful sound that is ready to hit airwaves and change the world.

Her debut album, Number 2, proudly displays her Gospel heritage, which is expertly woven throughout her soulful sound. While Alaina says she is not the product of her environment, she is clearly the product of her upbringing – she was raised in the church and taught to be soulful – that is exactly what you hear on this album. There are hints of jazz and R&B throughout her music, but this petite woman can belt out a song, putting her heart and soul into each word she sings. “I am a soul singer,” states Alaina. “Every day that I sing, I put my life into it. If I’m singing, you will feel what I am singing. I draw you into it. It’s personal. I make it personal.”
