Vandell Andrew grew up in New Orleans, spending years of his childhood in the shadow of Louis Armstrong, soaking up the vibe of the French Quarter’s great brass bands. Jazz was in the blood, but his soul was also filled with magic from his flute playing mom’s R&B collection (Anita Baker, Chaka Khan, etc.), hip-hop and Erykah Badu. Encouraging Vandell’s musical ambitions, his dad gave him John Coltrane and Charlie Parker CDs and told him for every song he learned, he would give him $100. With that money adding up, Vandell bought an audio interface, recorded his first CD and through determination and sheer hard work has emerged as one of the great independent contemporary jazz success stories of the decade.

Gregmatthew is a visual artist raised in Houston, TX by his parents alongside his older brother. Creating art has always been a part of his life. As a kid, Gregmatthew would even create his own comic books, but the art always took a backseat to sports. In the last five years, he has returned to a focused effort in cultivating his skills and craft in art. Much of the early inspiration came from Black 90’s sitcoms like Martin and Fresh Prince of Belaire — popular cinema like The Wood, Boomerang, and Love Jones. The nostalgic highlights of Black Culture and HipHop influenced how he wanted to show up in the world, also expressed through his work. The art is both realism and abstract realism, depicting a culmination of experiences and stories through analogies and literal interpretations of his life experiences as well as Popular Culture. G R E G M A T T H EW Gregmatthew is now a creative director working through various mediums, including fashion, design, and film. His fashion and design lifestyle brand, Somebody, is dedicated to people who appreciate art mirrored in fashion, expression, and culture. “I believe it is my responsibility to steward my artistic abilities and utilize my thoughts, ideas, and perspective to inspire others to steward the talents God has blessed them to have.”-
