Mr. Shy, former frontman of New Soul Orchestra, is a soul/pop singer, songwriter and performer… and a true original. A native of New York City, he began honing his craft at an early age. With influences ranging from The Beatles to Marvin Gaye to Prince, his own singing, writing, and performing has steadily evolved into a mature, distinctive sound, landing him squarely in a class of his own. Super Star, Mr. Shy’s debut release on New Soul Records, is an album of carefully crafted pop songs with an r&b/urban edge. Guided by a soulful and passionate voice, Super Star delivers thoughtful, straightforward lyrics of love, sewn together with infectious hooks and harmonies.

Christopher Worth – who performs under the moniker ‘WORTH’ – didn’t start singing until he was 20 years old. Beginning as a stage actor in college, he soon found his voice and ability as a songwriter and performer. After graduating he moved from the bay area back to his hometown of Portland, OR to pursue a career as a musician. Often resorting to busking to make a living, Worth gained most of his style playing on the street. In 2007 he formed the band NIAYH, an acronym for “Now Is All You Have.” NIAYH has since released a full length record and has toured extensively throughout the western US states. While NIAYH is often compared to a modern Pink Floyd, Worth describes his solo music as “bohemian blues hop.” It is simultaneously timeless and new, recalling contemporary influences like Ray Lamontagne, Amos Lee, and D’Angelo and classics such as Otis Redding and Paul McCartney.

London born DJ NG became a pioneering figure both as a DJ/Producer and Radio Presenter from the great success of his club anthem “TELL ME”. Produced and recorded in 2006, the popular track made at 126 bpm featured artists Katy B (On a mission) and MC Versatile (Crazy Cousins). This trend setting floor filler was (and still is) viewed by many today as a pioneering track that had a pivotal influence on the spawning of the London UK ‘House n Funky’ scene (also known as UK FUNKY).
