Hailing from the heart of San Francisco, transplanted in Los Angeles, Blimes is a rapper, singer and songwriter armed with an unmatched passion for artistry. Her musical background extends two generations, to a blues musician father and jazz musician grandfather, which adds unique depth to the her musical knowledge. Hip-Hop music and culture surrounded Blimes for as long as she remembers, and at just twelve she recognized her own affinity for lyricism and production in a beat-making and sampling course at her after school program. So far in 2015, Blimes has been making major waves and completed a 25 city European tour with fellow female heavy-hitter Gavlyn. She also clenched the number one slot on Snoop Dogg’s Underground Heat for her short-film style music video for BASSFACE at the top of the year. Blimes is currently working in the studio with rising star Lou Koo and promises a full length album with very renovated vibes is on the way, but for now check out her latest mixtape MNFST


Shalom Dubas is a singer, writer, rapper and producer who has a distinguished sound that’s best described as “ unique in a familiar territory “

Stating Lauryn Hill, Kanye West, Bob Marley, and Sade amongst her musical inspirations it’s no surprise that she consistently stands out through her charismatic and witty vocals, smooth sounds, and unprecedented transitions between rapid-fire verse and an indie/acoustic vibe.

In 2016, she released her first single ‘ Stories ‘ while still an undergrad at Penn State University. After being featured on a german playlist ‘ Dynmk ‘ and performing at countless events on campus she effectively built a name for her self that allowed her to share stages with the likes of Dej Loaf, Noname, Lee England Jr., David Hazeltine, and Joseph Chilliams of Pivot Gang.

An artist who values development, she spent the next 3 years based in Central Pennsylvania honing her sound, increasing her music business acumen, and creating a platform for her music and that of like minded artists to shine. While doing so she released 3 EPs and a slew of singles that garnered her over 2 million streams on Spotify alone.
In 2019, she moved to the MD/D.C area to focus on scaling her music career and is currently working on a forthcoming project.
When she’s not working on music you can find her playing shows in various east coast cities, speaking on panels about using data analysis to manage independent artistry, or attending music conferences like SXSW and A3C to increase her visibility and industry knowledge.

From a very young age, Shalom understood what it meant to be versatile and the significance behind creating a lane for herself. As an artist and a professional, she continues to evolve; Her goal is to travel far with her music, to continuously add to her sound, and to create songs that resonate with people across barriers.
