My mother named me Bryan, the homies renamed me Vealinium. I grew up in Lakewood where blood didn’t make you kin.
I began my craft as a writer at 7 and did not stop. With several projects and live performances under my belt, I thought it was time to create a universe for artists and musicians alike to mesh on one Kowch.
As an artist and a leader my role is to create the energy and place needed for ideas to blossom.

DJ Crico moved here from Naples, Italy, and easily fit in with the Tacoma crowd. Italian chef during the day and DJ by night. He’s gradually becoming one of the freshest up-and-coming DJs in Tacoma. The energy that he brings on the stage is unique he calls it “fresh” and “exotic” if Crico is spinning music you know that the night is going to be lit!

I honestly never saw myself pursuing music professionally at all but this is my outlet.
Race to the Light is a band that calls Tacoma, Wa home and that will always give you an energetic show! Kelvin (pianist/singer), Evan (guitarist), Pete (drummer), DeVaughn (singer), and Leonia (singer) are the members that create the nostalgic yet futuristic sound that will always get you moving. Inspired by all genres and sounds from 90’s RnB and early 2000s Punk Rock for some examples they always ask one another to think outside the box when it comes to their sound.
Tacoma born rapper and producer, XEL, started his music career with satirical songs with his friends in an attic. Those friends soon became the band "Hanging From the Rafters" who released "Girl: The Album" in January of 2020. Releasing that album made XEL's thirst for making music unquenchable. This desire for greatness pushed him to produce, arrange, write, record, and mix his entire first EP "North West Til Death" RIP DOOM
