Sahab
Sahab
When most people think of Fresno, CA they think farmland, small town mentality…and while this may be true, our city has been known to cultivate much more than agriculture and individuals who live inside a preconceived box. The arts are as alive and well in the central valley as the agriculture.

As a child, he split his time between Fresno and Iran. While the Iranian revolution happened before he was born, it played a significant role in the artist he is today. The revolution is what drove his family to America, the love of their heritage and culture is what keeps them going back.

The dichotomy that embodies him is realized through his visual art and his music. As a visual artist, you can see the magical realism within which his mind dwells. As an artist/producer you can feel the angst of not knowing where he belonged in songs such as “NO?” and “If I Had A GUN!” The magical realism depicted in Sahab’s visual art comes to life through songs such as “Dastaneh Leyli O Majnun” and “Running” with the mixture of light happiness and inner turmoil, which collide to encircle stormy skies.

As you continue on this journey of exploration and magical realism with him you will see that his presence is unmistakable. His personality, sense of humor and intense passion balance a person who is, at his worst, genuine.

He is Sahab, and he welcomes you on this journey.
Brian Cade
Brian Cade
Brian Cade was born March 30,th 1992 in a small town in Central California named Tulare. In his early childhood his family moved to Pasadena where he spent most of his youth. Brian began performing at a young age and in middle school he was casted to play Charlie Brown in “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.” His love to perform followed him to high school where he continued to sing and act. Along with a few fellow classmates he started a music group called, “The Fantasy Boyz.” The group performed for local high schools, then in 2009 competed and won the “Next Big Thing Talent Show” and a chance to perform at Fresno’s, “The Big Fresno Fair.”

In 2010, The Fantasy Boyz decided to go their separate ways. Brian returned to the “Next Big Thing Talent Show” and won it solo which earned him the opportunity to open for popular recording artist, Jason DeRulo. Since then Brian has opened for other talented artist such as, Def Jam’s YG, Jive’s Bei Maejor, Columbia’s Kreayshawn and Vh1 Hip Hop Honors Honorees Salt n Peppa, just to name a few. Brian is currently working hard on new projects including his 4th solo mixtape “#ToYouWithLove2,” and a joint project with Curtis Young, son of hip-hop legend Dr. Dre. He is also recording his 1st album “Turning Point.” Brian Cade knows that the music industry isn’t easy to break into but with hard work he’s believes all things are possible
B.Nice & Carl
B.Nice & Carl
Think of them as the Valley's music scene's answer to Hollywood's Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. Except Bnice has dreads and Carl is a 5'4 Filipino/Chinese-American.
As self-described children of the likes of Outkast and A Tribe Called Quest, they bring in a mixture of an appreciation for smart wordplay and lyricism with very new school sensibilities. It's always going to be a fun time with this odd couple. Upon listening to them either as individuals or as a duo, you can get the idea that they don't necessarily fit the mold of the times, but rather make the molds fit them.
