In My Own Lane was started to be a platform for artists who are charting their own lane:

“Being in the industry for years, I’ve seen dope artists who don’t fit the “norm,” so they may not get the same exposure given to the next artist who does. So I feel it’s my duty to advocate for artists who create fearlessly, contrary to the norm.”

About Carolyn Malachi

From Washington, DC's rich Blues, Jazz, Spoken Word, GoGo and R&B music scene emerges CAROLYN MALACHI with a fresh blend of music that garners international praise, including MTV naming her an R&B artist “to obsess over”.

GOLD, the follow-up to Carolyn Malachi’s  GRAMMY-nominated single "Orion", includes contemporary R&B radio hits “All Right” and “Fall Winter Spring Summer” which NPR named to its 10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing list. Malachi describes GOLD as an ever-appreciating commodity: self-empowerment. Using her music and social media platforms as forces for good, she advocates for global access to education and technology through collaborations with  the School Fund, GRAMMY U and the Global Fund for Women. She says, “Each of our paths is unique. Music is the intersection where we pause for collective conversation. Music is universal.”

RISE [Story 1], a new album, is scheduled for release in 2016 and is the first part of an album trilogy called Rise of the Modern Natural. The story’s first section, CHAPTER I, arrives on July 8. Its leading singles, "We Like Money" and “Blowing Smoke”,  are available now on iTunes and all digital music outlets.

About Japhia Life

"All I've ever wanted to do in music was raise the bar and push the culture forward while injecting creativity and truth."

Born and raised in Philly by his father a bible teacher, and his mother a gospel singer and pianist. By age fifteen Japhia found himself headed down the wrong path, and eventually sitting in a crack house focused on living out his street dreams. Eventually Japhia realized that his ability as an emcee could provide the escape from the trappings of his environment that he so desperately needed. In 2001 he inked a deal with a Los Angeles based indie hip hop label called Ready Rock Records, and released (Pages of Life) which was compared to (Illmatic & Reasonable Doubt), and hailed a hip hop classic in the underground hip hop market. Weaving creativity with heartfelt lyricism has proven to become an explosive combination in terms of his fan base. He was recently featured in an article in (URB Magazine) that starts off by mentioning him as being the heartfelt voice that will be heard by this generation, and the future of Hip Hop. His latest album The Profit is available now.
