When different becomes hard to come by in the music industry every artist must define what sets themselves apart from the norm. Whether lyrical genius or a vocal sinatra JJ DAE embodies the evolution of music from Southern soul to new age alternative with hints of urban grit.
Intelligence of a different kind is how he defines himself. A breath of fresh air flawlessly transitioning from vocals to strings to the acoustic heartbeat of his guitar.
As a Carolinas raised rapper, lyricst, vocalist, musical talent of a different kind, he finds himself in a lane of his own. With inspiration drawn from mainstream artists such as Adele, One Repulic, J Cole, Miguel, Frank Ocean, and Tool to old school classics lik Bill withers , Jimmy Hendrix, and Richie haven.

The Wheresville Project was an American rock n' Roll band based out of Spartanburg, South Carolina. Their musical backgrounds are a unique blend of classic and southern rock, blues, and funk. The band consists of Brian Steinberg (vocals, rhythm guitar), Joseph Boscia (lead guitar), Hunter Mulkey (bass), Ben Lewson (drums).
The Wheresville Project members met in Spartanburg and originally performed as Simple Paradox until the spring of 2010 when the band’s name was changed to The Wheresville Project, after Mark Miller’s Wheresville Records in South Carolina. In September 2011, the band won Hub Bub's Next Big Thing Talent Competition in Spartanburg, putting themselves at the top of Spartanburg's music scene. After gaining popularity and notoriety in the Spartanburg area, the group began performing at larger venues and festivals across the southeast .During the summer of 2012, the band worked with producer and former bassist for The Marshall Tucker Band, Tim Lawter, on their debut album Four Years and Cities. The album was released on August 16, 2012, and has been well received by critics and the public alike. The group disbanded in 2013 and all four members are currently enrolled in colleges throughout the southeast.
This is a reality show based on Mark & Josh Watkins, a father and son team, that are starting a Camping World truck series race team in a most unusual way. They're the only people in history to do this .
The idea worked well back in 2000. They were successful and had a crowdfunded Bush series race car. However, this time around things didn't pan out for them.
These videos are a few episodes of the contestants fighting for a spot to be their driver.
We thoroughly enjoy our travels with them, taking us as far a Michigan. We met some great people along the way!
