Musician TMike brings together his life experience and lifelong love for music to make feel-good, genuine, and genre-meshing hip-hop that lives up to his passion.
Growing up in the western Florida city of Fort Myers, The singer and rapper’s upbringing was surrounded by soul music, resonating with household chores while listening to Marvin Gaye. Fort Myers’ fickle music scene rivaled with Tymichael’s look at his career on a global scale. This pushed his drive and a re-location to Miami—now cataloging a collection of over 300 songs and claiming he could release a song weekly for the next three years.
On TMike’s latest track “Already Made It,” working alongside engineer Hero, he’s looking in retrospect of everything overcome to reach this point in both his career and his personal life, feeling as if he’s made it. Not so much on the Billboard Hot 100, yet, but on his own terms—and with a humble smile on his face.
While “Already Made It” is a feel-good anthem for anyone looking at perspective, most of TMike ’s tracks have upbeat and motivating cadence, and have reached over 500,000 streams on Spotify—showing that his sound is infectious and lively, and looking to write music for everyone and every genre that ranges in influence from Pink Floyd to Beethoven.
“I just want to sound authentic and I want you to do the authenticity and all of my music,” explains TMike . “So if you don’t like one song, there’s five that you are in love with.”
While TMike has made it with his latest single, another single release is in the works. But he wants “Already Made It” to marinate in its future success, much like the musician himself–whose persistence is the key to his hit-making motions, and with a confidence that may soon make him a household name that loves music just as much as his listeners.

”Sparkle Like 24K Gold,” the latest release from Dr. Jefferey P. Kee, has hints of his Christian faith in it. He is, after all, a Baptist minister, and in a song about love it is natural for him to borrow some lines from St. Paul: “Love is patient, love is kind.”
“That says that love is not just on the good days, but it also encompasses the messed up Mondays and tore-up Tuesdays, the wayward Wednesdays, the tumultuous Thursdays, the frightening Fridays and the set-back Saturdays.”
Musically, he said, some people see it as spiritual, some say it has an R&B feel, and some call it inspirational, but it is a product of his gift and his experience of music.
It reflects, in his words, “a plethora of different genres of music.”
“Love is the universal language and emotion that every culture understands. And this particular song is a universal song.”
He grew up listening to funk, soul, gospel, and, through his father, country. He loves those kinds of music, he loves love songs, “and I tried to integrate that into a particular melodic tone so that others can relate to it.” Music, like love, is a language.
“It’s a story that speaks to people wherever they are in their particular situation. That, that’s what music is to me.”
This particular song came about because a cousin from Los Angeles who was planning a destination wedding in San Lucas, Mexico and wanted Dr. Kee to officiate.
“I called him and I said I have a song that has resonated inside of me that I want to have for your wedding,” and “Sparkle Like 24K Gold” was born.
His music, like his faith, is omni denominational, and he describes himself as The Pastor for the Master. He has been influenced by many interfaith churches, Catholic, Methodist and Baptist and other Protestant churches.
“I have the cross fertilization to be a person that loves God, but not to have boundaries to believe that my particular faith is predicated by a particular denomination or locality.” He has been pastoring in Columbus, Ohio, in the same church, for 30 years.
“Sparkle Like 24K Gold” is part of a larger project he is working on, an album on which people will hear some funk, soul, gospel, love. It will, he says, have “something that will make you feel like you want to clap your hands, stomp your feet,” and things that make you want to lament, “that will take you to a place where you can sort of reflect upon the losses you’ve had, the celebrations of life, your high moments and your low moments.”
He is aiming, in general and with “Sparkle” for an audience “that can understand the language of love,” a universal audience that is not solely anything — Christian, black, white or anything else. In the moment when one person feels love for another, “There’s something about that particular moment, for that individual, that sparkles like 24 karat gold to you.”
“It may not be that way to someone else, but to you, because the illuminating presence of what that person is to you, it sparkles like 24 karat gold, and that’s what I’m trying to get across.”
He graduated from the United Theological Seminary with a doctorate of ministry. He says he graduated “as a preacher for social change because I was more concerned about the mundane, about human existence and a greater level of humanity for all people.”
Faith informs his music but does not bind it. He believes that all people deserve to be loved and appreciated, not to be discriminated against. He seeks to present love musically in a way that transcends those human failings and gives people an appreciation of themselves and for the love of others.
“I am grateful because I don’t just hear the words. I love poetry and I like writing, but if I don’t have the music, it could be like a homily, or a sort of message or a poem, and I’m grateful that I can reach people through music in a message that people can relate to.”

Relatability, to Bryant Gilliam – Saynave (rhymes with rave) – means music that is about things relating to the lives that most people live daily.
Hence his newest single, “The Cookout,” released from his upcoming EP Stay Connected, scheduled for release on August 4.
The cookout in the video features a party thrown by Philadelphia-based event group One Jollof. Bryant’s rap scenes were shot in the first hour, before the party arrived, and the rest of the video is of the party.
“It makes a much more easygoing song,” he said.
And that gets to more than just relatability. It also goes to his style, what he wants his music to be and do and how he thinks about it.
Another example is another single that has been released ahead of the EP. Called “Speak the Language,” it’s about many of the languages of daily life – money, time, clothes, favors, cars and boats, life, lies and, of course, love.On one level, it was inspired by one of his hobbies, learning languages, and his wife, who is from Kenya, so he is learning Swahili, one of the languages of Kenya.
And on yet another level, the cover for the EP Stay Connected will be a wedding photo of Bryant and his wife.
His style is laid back, and his subject matter of daily life and issues in the wider world are all tied in with the intent of his music.
Most of popular music, he says, at least in hip hop, is, “in the commercial space, not interesting. It’s very derivative. It’s easily replicable.”
“When I think of Radiohead, or The Kid Laroi, it’s very interesting. It’s all over the place. It’s weird, but very interesting. Tyler the Creator or Kendrick Lamar is very interesting music, you know? It makes you have an opinion.”
That view of music comes from a widely varied experience. His first real exposure to music was saxophone in middle school-high school band and orchestra. Then came video game music, and he can remember the name, if not, he says, the name’s pronunciation, of the video game composer Nobuo Uematsu.
Top 40 tunes also came before hip hop, introduced to him by a cousin.
“I started listening to a lot of like old Kanye, Jay Z, like a lot of that stuff which got me into the art of it. Nowadays, I’m listening to everything. I’m big into bands, big into just whatever is musically interesting.”
He mostly writes his own music and all his lyrics. In his songs he talks about things in his life and things he thinks about. One of his songs from earlier this year is “Pray for Ye,” about Kanye West and his troubles.
“It’s a quick single I put out because I was praying that Kanye wasn’t going crazy. And I had this beat, and I was like, ‘Oh I have an idea for a song.’”
And thus did a prayer became a song, and the feelings behind it led into another aspect of Saynave’s musical art.
Kanye’s early music, he said, was “thoughtful and relatable.”
“He was very unique in capturing emotions and topics that were really relatable in the hip hop space,” he said. “But now he has become a caricature.”
Expanding on that idea of caricature and pretense, he borrows a wrestling term, “kayfabe,” which is the name for the way the made-up storylines and rivalries of professional wrestling are portrayed as real. A lot of that same kind of pretense has worked its way into hip hop, he says.
Because hip hop is culturally based, he says, an archetype of what rap is and isn’t comes into being, almost like a law.
“Country music is probably the closest analogue,” he said. “It’s a very culture driven genre, and if you don’t pass the smell test, you’re almost not even let in.” He identifies a similar dynamic at work in rap and hip hop and results in a lot of nonsense “that’s just put out there and called art.”
“And I’m like, yes, it passes the smell test, but it’s not good. Or productive.”
As for him, where does he want to go musically? “Personally, I mean, obviously, take me to the Grammys, right?”
“But,” he said, “without sounding preachy, most people are out here working regular jobs, trying not to get in trouble, and could probably use music that more relates to what they have going on. My main goal would be to help evolve or mature hip pop in a way that makes rap more acceptable in a traditional sense. My goal is to help evolve the art form in a way that I think benefits everyone.”

DENVER, CO – A man who has found peace in the acoustic sounds of a guitar and the meditative creation of his music, Royce DeZorzi is truly an interesting musician. Self-taught and connected to the nature around him, DeZorzi’s music has found a home between introspective and expressive.
DeZorzi’s music career began with a guitar left to him by his late brother. “I’ve always loved music,” he explained. “But I didn’t pick up the guitar until after my brother died.” He learned the basics from a bandmate of his brother, who refused to buy the guitar when DeZorzi attempted to sell it.
From that point, in the isolation of rural Colorado, DeZorzi fell in love with old records and the orchestral possibilities of the acoustic guitar. Despite turning to a more synth-based sound while living in Los Angeles during the COVID-19 pandemic, DeZorzi returned to Colorado, the comfortable isolation of nature, and the acoustic guitar. It was at that point that he went on to create his latest album, Denver.
“The album is made up of meditations of the time and experiences that have shaped me in the last few years,” DeZorzi explained. Denver is a collection of tracks created as he meditated on his life, while returning to the comfortable home that is his acoustic guitar. “I would just sit down and play,” he said. “It would all just gradually come together.”
One of the songs on Denver that DeZorzi found to be the most personally impactful was the track “Reseda”. This song looks back onto the stressful and emotionally exhausting time in which DeZorzi had just relocated to Los Angeles. The point where he was still adjusting to it all. “It took a lot of time to get this to where it is,” he explained. “When listening to this song, I can picture exactly what it feels like to be there again.”
DeZorzi’s hope with Denver is that his audience is able to listen to the album and get the same experience as he gets with “Reseda”. The project is filled with emotion, honesty and sensitivity and by putting that into the world, he shares a soundtrack to our collective moments of vulnerability.
Following the release of Denver, DeZorzi is set on continuing to share his music through upcoming live performances, experimentation into new styles and outlets, and future releases of his music. This artist has an incredible future ahead of him and it would truly be a mistake to miss out on the gorgeous work he has coming up.
Make sure to stay tuned in to Royce DeZorzi on various platforms for new music,
