"Hu Uwah" and "Missing Pieces" were created during two of John's lesson make up sessions. Again, all of the music for these songs was written or improvised by the students and then arranged by John and the students during the session. The next two songs, "Everybody Clap Your Hands" and "Move Along", created by Pensacola's Montessori Middle School Class and Pensacola's School of Liberal Arts High School Class are prime examples of how—when given the means, people will create.

Born in 1985 to a young single mother and raised in the panhandle of Florida, I began to be influenced by rap music at an early age. As I got into middle and high school, and with the emergence of Eminem, I gained the confidence to start scratching out some of my own rhymes. I started out using it as a form of escape and joy when all the bullshit in my life at the time became too much to think about. I know it sounds cliché anymore to say "music saved my life," but when I hear someone say that, I completely get it. As my writing skill level progressed over the years I began to lean towards writing poetry to ease my mind and express my thoughts. But with the passion for music still inside me, I could never completely put it down. So I would make little party tracks and abstract rhymes to share with my friends under the non-existent label "S.M.A.S.H. Ent."(Self Made and Southern Hearted Entertainment). And after many parties, long nights, fights and altercations, they just began to call me Smash. And now, for the first time, I present SMaSH to the WORLD with my debut EP!!!!

Joell Regal, also interpreted as Royal Prophet, is poised to reign as one of the most profound songwriters amongst her peers. Originally from Montgomery, Alabama, she was raised in the heart of Birmingham, where her love for music emerged at the early age of 7. She has since discovered a passion for songwriting, using her voice and guitar as a means of transforming her life experiences into “melodic words.” Joell first started performing in September of 2012, and has since been moving full speed ahead, opening up for various artists such as jazz flautist Claudia Hayden, and Los Angeles’ own DeQn Sue. With sounds ranging from folk to jazz, and from ballads to hip-hop, this artist is a one-stop shop for great music and genuine talent. Spectators of her shows have deemed her “A life saver” and one who “…casts spells on the audience,” as she sings. With lyrics that uplift and exude passion, Joell has set her sights on not only changing her community, but ultimately the world, by way of music and poetry, one listener at a time. Joell Regal is well on her way!
