Happy Hour Show! Harry Jay
Happy Hour Show!  Harry Jay
Harry Jay is a funk/ RnB/ hip-hop artist, who began his career in his first year at Berklee College of music, honing his craft and combining elements of the DC RnB scene with the musical concepts learned in the classroom. His 4+ octave vocal range and soulful tendencies have earned him high acclaim in both the Boston and DC musical communities. Along with the beginning of his songwriting career, Harry Jay formed his band, The Bling, in his first semester at Berklee. Comprised of all DC area natives who attend Berklee, the Bling has been known for their incredibly authentic, energetic, and soulful live performances, as well as their exuberant onstage outfits.
The group has become a bit of an overnight success, with their first EP, “Truth,” reaching number 1 on Bandcamp’s Neo Soul chart within 5 hours of its release. The band has also been featured on various radio stations and blogs, being described as “Effortlessly Cool” by Atwood Magazine’s Kaitlyn Zorilla, as well as "A musical lovechild of Steely Dan and Jamiroquai" by Earbits Radio's Dave Sorrendino. The group’s sound is an intriguing blend of modern jazz and old soul, as the ultimate goal is to pay homage to the pioneers of RnB while generating a new, exciting sound.
The Band has also experienced great live success, completing a 5-week headlining tour in the summer of 2017 on the east coast of the United States, and selling out shows regularly in the Boston and Washington DC area. Their live performances have been described as explosive, exciting, and memorable by those who have seen them.
Chicago-born and Australian-raised, 21-year-old singer-songwriter NINA developed her love for music and songwriting from a young age. As she transitioned from being a classical singer into the pop/soul genre, NINA drew from artists such as Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé and Joss Stone.
​Before moving to the United States, the young musician had already performed on shows such as Australia’s School Spectacular, The Netball World Cup Opening Ceremony (Fox, Foxtel), and The Voice - Australia, where judge Ricky Martin dubbed her "a natural performer and pop star." Since moving to Boston, NINA has released a four-track EP, three independent singles, and three music videos as she fully immersed herself in the Boston music scene. Having performed at venues such as City Winery, The Red Room and The Middle East, NINA’s live set boasts of her passion for music and love of her audience.
Her newest release “I Can Do Better” ignites empowerment, confidence and strength within one’s self after she realized how much courage it takes to live a life on your own. Her quirky and entertaining attitude goes hand-in-hand with her honest lyrics and melodic songwriting. Resonating with her strong passion for self-confidence and being true to one’s self, NINA is mostly autobiographical when writing about her own experiences and emotions.
