Singer/songwriter and recording artist Chelsea Como is a native of Miami and started singing at her local church at the age of 4. Like many R&B singers, Chelsea grew up singing in a gospel choir while she was in school and university. Her exposure to gospel inspires her to create a pure experience of truth in every performance. After graduating from the University of Miami Chelsea started doing background vocals, among others for R&B/Jazz/Gospel artists such as Lisa Page, Jerald Dorsett, Ashaala Shanae and Petula Beckles. This introduced her to Richard Aspinwall, two -time Grammy award winning producer to American music legends Garth Brooks and The Dave Matthews Band. With the help of Aspinwall, Chelsea recorded at the legendary Ocean Way Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, playing with the likes of “Nashville’s Finest”, Manolo Yanes, bass player to Patti Labelle and The Neville Brothers; Elijah D.D. Holt pianist and B3 player to Lalah Hathaway, Angie Stone, and Yolanda Adams; and Shane Theriot guitarist to The Neville Brothers. In 2010 she released her first album “Journey” a compilation of inspirational songs written and inspired by a life-changing experience. She writes her own songs and her music can be labeled as R&B/Neo-soul/ House. It has some jazz, gospel, and even pop influences. With an eclectic array of musical influences: Sade, Whitney Houston, and Lauryn Hill, and her voice often described as an infusion of John Legend and Indie Arie, Chelsea’s soulful and very inspirational message is portrayed in her music, often times dealing with the struggle of life and the hope of the future. Chelsea’s mission is to inspire people to be an individual, live life to the fullest, and follow their dreams. Currently, Chelsea is working with the likes of "Spellband" & "DJ Jacko" on a new dance single titled "Get Free" on Tony Records that is sure to get club goers dancing. She is also back in the studio working on her sophomore album.
Jacko grew up listening to Soul, R&B, Gospel and Hip-Hop, he is entirely devoted to quality dance music. His technical style of ‘overlaying’ and his wide range of musical genres when playing has been influenced by working with house legend Tony Humphries. Sonically Jacko represents the future of dance music, where a DJ plays a wide variety of genres and creates a mood that flows from House, Deep-House into Hip-Hop and Trap meeting all the needs of club goers of different ages and nationalities.
Jacko has developed these skills after moving to New York in 2003. Where he closely worked with Tony Humphries and established the Tony Records label. He opened for and supported Humphries over the next decade, playing in venues such as Nu Echoes (Riccione) Djoon Club (Paris), Cavo Paradiso in (Mykonos), Discotheque (New York), DC10 (Ibiza) and other venues in Portugal, Germany and the UK. He has also toured solo playing at Urban Klub (Treviso), Room26 (Rome), Goa (Rome), Jumeirah Beach (Dubai), Pacha (London), The Cross (London), Standard Rooftop Hotel (Los Angeles).
Jacko’s most recent single was the Traxsource #1 hit and Suncebeat banger ‘Closer’ with American singer Chelsea Como, played and supported by heavyweight DJ's all over the world like: Tony Humphries, Louie Vega, Anane Vega and DJ Spen. 'Closer' has also been featured on many radio stations all over the world like, WBLS (New York), and Rinse FM (UK) and is currently played a lot in the house club circuit in New York and London. After the success of his recent DJ sets in Amsterdam during ADE 2016, he released his last single titled "Paradise" in March 2017, which has been played on Defected Radio by Simon Dunmore. Jacko also collaborates with British DJ/Producer Redsoul under the name of ‘Cognac’. The pair have released exclusive killer club re-edits, all of which have been played extensively during the Kings of House NYC parties, and enjoyed by party people and audiences all over the world.
