MUSICIAN Born:

Jennifer Derrick Adams

For the love of it is my first studio album. As a little girl I would tell anyone who would listen, “when I grow up i’m going to be a singer”. Here I am grown up, having been for quite sometime now and this debut is the realization of this life-long dream. Over the years I would step into the Seattle Jazz scene, scratch the itch, then step back out to manage my day gig, be a mother and deal with the crushing self doubt that can accompany standing on a stage and singing in front of strangers. I exchanged my passion for pragmatism. Singing in private, showing up at open mic nights, attending workshops and it occurred to me that it was time to put it on record, for the love of the music; the love for my son, may everything he does, and you do, be for the love of it.

Lola Batiste

Vocals Elite - Lola Batiste -Recording Artist ​Born in Paris, Texas to a musical family, Lola Batiste whose aunt was a Baptist church pianist/singer with a fervent vocal style had an early influence on Lola's interpretation of a lyric. Lola attended the Catholic church whose choir pianist had a more repressed style, began singing hymns in the church where she fused her aunt's fervent gospel singing influence with the subdued style of the Catholic church creating a unique mix of vocal style that leaned more toward a melancholy vibe.

In 2017 Lola competed in the "Denise Lee Onstage So You Think You Can Cabaret" competition where she won 3rd place with her rendition of Billie Holiday's "Fine and Mellow". In a musical collaboration with songwriter Nico Rizzuto of Cologne, Germany Lola provided the vocals for the creation of “Because You Know Me” a jazzy tune that had some airplay in Germany. Lola has also had the honor of being a member of the prestigious Women's Chorus of Dallas where she sang first soprano under the artistic direction of Melinda Imthurn.​ Along with two other actresses she portrayed Diana Ross with the Supremes in the Marsha Moses musical production of “From Dixie to Broadway” a musical documenting the history of African American music
