About R’mone

IMG_20150501_004925Born in 1986 in Martinsville, Virginia, R’mone Entonio began singing at the age of 5 alongside his father in an all-male gospel quartet group. This is the foundation where R’mone’s passion & love for music developed & would continue to evolve. Constantly being influenced by the records & cassette tapes played by his parents, the radio, etc., R’mone’s musical influences range from Lalah Hathaway, Eric Benet and D’Angelo to Stevie Wonder, The Gap Band & The Beatles. After high school, R’mone went on to study music at Virginia State University for 2 years, where he increased the range of his craft by majoring in vocal concentration. There, he absorbed the classical foundation & vocal techniques that would eventually reap benefits for his future.

After relocating to North Carolina post-college, R’mone has went on to accompany some very influential artists of North Carolina’s piedmont region such as World Renowned Poet Josephus Thompson, International Performing Artist Vanessa Ferguson, International Recording Artist Tanya Ross, and World Renowned Singer/Performer Sybil Lynch, just to name a few. All of these experiences have helped R’mone to step forward in his own artistry & brand, the R’mone Entonio Brand.

IMG_20150803_092944As this young artist continues to emerge, footage of R’mone’s cover work of songs performed live can be found on YouTube. The brand new single titled “Without You” is available now & can be purchased on all digital media outlets online. Soon to follow will be the complete EP, “Unorthodox Soul” in the fall of 2015.

She has been in the industry professionally for over 17 years. Her personal sound is very smooth, soulful, and soothing to the ear, however; she is one of the most versatile women in the industry.

She started out singing in the church in Memphis and later moved to Chicago, where she joined a female trio at age 17. The group was signed to Def Jam under Russell Simmons and later on signed to Universal under Gene Riggins. Her strongest points are writing and vocal arranging. She is constantly called upon by different producers and vocalists to tailor make something especially for them. In the early 90’s, she was known to many as the “go to” girl for background and vocal arrangement sessions.

She can also customize a song to enhance any vocalist, male or female. She has written for Blackstreet with Teddy Riley, Rapper Heavy D, C&C Music Factory, Terry Dexter, Nick Loren, and Emily Bell to name a few. She has done tv appearances and sang back up for many artists as well. She performed on the Rosie Odonnell show with Brandy and brother Ray J, Joshua Kadison, Kenny Loggins, Dave Hollister, Charlie Wilson, Jason Weaver, and sang with Christopher Williams on the Robert Townsend Show.

She has done performances in Japan and hosted MTV Japan as well, and also has done commercials and soundtracks with Stephanie Mills and Spike Lee.

She is expecting a few up coming releases this year, one project is where she cowrote a song with Tyrese Gibson for Anita Baker’s 2011 release. She also wrote on and sang on various songs for the new and upcoming Scarlett Santana of C&C MF Records, set for a summer release. She recently partnered up on a joint venture with another heavyweight writer known in the industry as Toriano Cage to form a new writing team called ReeTori-CAL Inc.

About the Band

dannyThis Reaction led to people wondering what was the plan and next step for the band and it’s music.The Illumination Experience has since been hard at work putting the final touches on their Debut Album and it hit Online Stores April 19th, 2015. The Album is available for purchase on all Online Platforms such as iTunes & Amazon and on all online Streaming Services such as Spotify.

A New York City native, Mr. Shy is a soul/pop singer, songwriter and performer with influences ranging from The Beatles to Marvin Gaye to Prince. His own singing, writing and performing over the years has resulted in a mature, distinctive song craft and style of musical expression very much his own.
Mr_Shy_Sitting
In 2006, Mr. Shy (former front man of New Soul Orchestra) debuted his solo album, “Super Star”, on New Soul Records. Loaded with carefully crafted pop songs with an r&b/urban edge, “Super Star” is guided by a soulful and passionate voice delivering thoughtful, straightforward lyrics of love, all sewn together with infectious hooks and harmonies.
Mr. Shy has since collaborated with a wide range of heralded producers, including 3-time Grammy winner Juan Belmonte from Spain and Italy’s Marco Finotello (The Vibes Organization), releasing numerous singles and remix EPs on other labels.
In early 2011, Mr. Shy also released “Remixed”, a vinyl-only promotional LP and stunning compilation of remixes from his debut album.

Bio

Yes, Tommie is her real birth name–after her grandfather Thomas…

Born into a military family just outside Houston, Texas in the 60’s. One of five siblings, but was raised–along with her older brother– by her mom’s family mostly in Columbus, Ohio.

AUG 2014By the age of 7, she was already playing the organ by ear, helping her mom rehearse her church solos, and perfoming in the Childrens Choir. The love for performing only became stronger during the teenage years, cheer leading for 4 years in High School, while dabbling in music and The Children’s Theater group.  She then attended Ohio University, taking electives in Music Theory and Theatre, where wanting to be an entertainer became her new dream.  With no serious formal training–and instead of graduating and taking over the family child care business–she decided to hit the road with countless bands as a stage performer. This led her to joining the all-female group EVE, where she received her first national recording contract with The Music Store/Ichiban Records.

Since leaving the business in the 90’s to raise her son (and career detour, during battling Stage III Breast Cancer in ’03-’04), she has performed and recorded with countless bands and artists in her town of Columbus, Ohio.  In 2012 she stopped answering the musician want-ads to work just as a ‘hired gun’, of just singing whatever-wherever as income.  It was then she realized that ‘what’ she sang and how she ‘felt’ about the music, was more important than the money paid to do it. This new paradigm set her back on the road to original songwriting, and pursing labels to release her songs.

OCT 2013Her immediate goals in music are to nurture and inspire others–by composing and performing songs about life lessons that we all share. Presently, she is focused on making original productions and mashup/remix covers–in her home studio–collaborating with partner, Producer OskiDJ of Barcelona, and the Unique2Rhythm UK label. Her bigger longterm goals are to perform/tour internationally, plus to create and/or manage other Artists–by building her own entertainment label from revenue in songwriting endeavors.

Tommie’s VOCAL musical influences include all the greats of the “oleskool vinyl era” such as Aretha Franklin, Loletta Holloway, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight, Jennifer Holiday, Donna Summer, and Martha Wash–but still gives credit to Barbara Streisand, Bette Midler, Cheryl Lynn and Joyce ‘Baby Jean’ Kennedy as the beginning inspirations for her wanting to be a performer.

“I’ve always admired vocalists who give you everything they have. Where you can hear the pain, challenges or triumphs come out in their interpretation of the lyrics. Not holding back passion in a cry or scream, for the sake of making their sound glossy and perfect for radio.”

JULY 2014Her current favorites are a roster of some of the best vocalists from the U.K., such as Joss Stone, Annie Lennox, Alison Moyet and Katherine Ellis. Her American favorites include the sounds of Concrete Blonde, Heart, and Mothers Finest as well as guitar-mamas Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Sass Jordan and Joan Osborne. With regards to her own talents, she uses the slogan “Everything from A to Z: Aretha to Zeppelin”. This is why each time you hear her voice, you will receive a new experience.
