Angelo Michael Martin

If I had one word to describe Angelo Michael Martin, I would choose the word "Phenomenal". This Chicagoland native has it all. A singer/songwriter with the gift of musicianship enhanced by the ability to produce and engineer his own "Vision". Angelo Michael Martin has the gift to create music that mirrors the inner depths of his soul. His musical arrangements are guaranteed to send you on a journey as his "Silky Smooth" vocals narrate what can only be considered the "Trials and Tribulations" of a man's travels. Angelo's music is "Original and Funky".

His sense of musical style penetrates every song with a barrage of rhythms and melodies that blend harmoniously together. The music progression borders the familiar with a strong shot of innovation as his lyrics relay the the message of the artist with precision and "Good Taste". Enjoy his soulful basslines as they dance with well thought out background harmonies making for a pleasurable listening experience. Enjoy his "work"......Angelo Michael Martin's "TIME IS NOW"

Roger Hill

What started as a dream 50 years ago in Rochester, New York is now coming into fruition. Atlanta-based R&B/Soul singer, Roger Hill Music is set to release his debut album in early 2022. The “feel good” singer’s sound reflects his love for classic r&b, jazz, and soul.

The passion for singing and performing started at the early age of five when he and his sister would perform at different churches in Upstate New York. Today, Hill still performs in different cafes in the Atlanta area and has decided to pursue recorded music.

Quality control is a core element of the vision for his upcoming project which prompted Hill to work with Grammy Award winning engineers in a state-of-the-art recording studio. Hill’s intent behind his upcoming debut-single is to create the nostalgic feeling that occurs when listening to oldies R&B.
