It's always a pleasure to visit B-More, our Charm City neighbor, and doubly so when the reason is to catch our favorite acoustic duo JC performing at the Canal Street Festival. We made it just in time for the start of their set and in addition to hearing them at the top of their game we also snapped a few pics for the Everyday Style section. JC is comprised of Jenee Bevett on vocals and guitar impressario Cornell Pearce providing string accompaniment. We call Jenee our DMV Diva and his contemporaries call Cornell one of the best guitarists in the area, hands down. We added a video of JC performing live at the festival to the OnStage Video Showcase and you can find 15 photos of what folks were styling in our Everyday Style Photo Showcase.
We’ll be spotlighting quite a few of #TheOnesToWatch in 2012 and can’t think of a better place to start than DMV artist A.C. Springs. Keep an eye out for this Seat Pleasant, MD rapper. His newest song is “My Life” and he’s already been featured on WKYS DMV’s Own. Of course we dropped his live performance video in the Video Showcase but don’t stop there. Check out all his music and upcoming event information at his Reverb Nation page and at http://soundcloud.com/a-c-springs. We think you’ll agree he’s got a positive flow and mad potential. Many thanks to Chekeska Rashad for introducing us to his music. YouTube video courtesy of CoalHeartedLIVE.
