Love Joi

Joi “Love­Joi” Bowles, the Peters­burg Va. native began her singing career at a very young age in church and at home. Over the years she has advanced as a pow­er­house vocal per­former and an excep­tion­al song writer. Love­Joi has trav­eled nation­al­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly and worked with acts such as Chrisette Michelle (singing back­ground), Bazaar Roy­al (Def Jam Records), and Trey Songz in his ear­ly career, and has graced the stage with artists such as The O Jays, Music Soul­child, and Char­lie Wil­son just to name a few. Her soul­ful and dynam­ic voice is one that not only touch­es each lis­ten­er but also takes the audi­ence on a musi­cal jour­ney with each song per­formed. Over the years Love­Joi has also per­formed as lead singer on the Rich­mond Jazz Fes­ti­val stages, and the 2 Street Fes­ti­val stages as well as oth­er pub­lic and pri­vate venues and events, with the local bands “Chkn Grese” and The Tun­ji Band.  Last year Love­Joi had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to dance on stage and per­form an amaz­ing breath tak­ing vocal per­for­mance with The Isley Broth­ers at the Rich­mond Jazz Fes­ti­val. She is now mak­ing major raves through­out the Rich­mond Metro area with her own band of tal­ent­ed not­ed musi­cians at mul­ti­ple local venues such as Good­Tymes­R­VA. She just released her first sin­gle “Your Com­fort” on her upcom­ing debut self titled album, “Love­Joi”, which is avail­able on iTunes. Her tal­ent, dri­ve, and love for the stage is def­i­nite­ly some­thing to talk about and wit­ness first hand at this year’s edi­tion of the “Brook­lyn Bazaar”.

Bazaar Royale

Bazaar Royale is a rock star and the cre­ator of the “Ghet­to Met­al” move­ment, Royale has built a new sound that is full of rock opti­mism, spiked with a grit­ty dose of reality—the hard times mil­lions of peo­ple are going through around the world. On his most recent CD, “The Ride” Royale takes us on a jour­ney of self-dis­cov­ery; Who am I as an indi­vid­ual and What role do I play in society?Bazaar works with some top-notched musi­cians to cre­ate a mul­ti-lay­ered Hip Hop, Soul/Funk in your face Rock sound. He has per­formed with artists such as, DMX, and Autoslave. His Ghet­to Met­al move­ment has already got some world class fans spread­ing the word. George Clin­ton, the inno­v­a­tive, poet­ic leader of Par­lia­ment Funkadel­ic explains it like this: “Ghet­to Met­al is aggres­sion rock & roll that repos­sessed its own soul.” Mark Ron­son, the leg­endary music pro­duc­er who has worked with; Amy Wine­house, Christi­na Aguil­era and Macy Grey says, “Ghet­to Met­al. The term sounds amaz­ing because it just rings. It’s hip hop and rock. And not just any kind of Rock, it’s HARD Gui­tar Rock. There’s a raw ener­gy that comes from Bazaar.”
