You can find his soul ridged deep in the groove of his records. You can find his heart lodged between the highs and lows of his melodies. You can find his emotions wedged in between space and his fingertips. Simply put, Jeff Sparks produces life music that is affixed within multi- generations; a seamless hybrid of old and new; a cleaver ‘twist’ on classic jazz.

Shattering expectations and pre-conceived notions of what he and his flute should sound like, audiences find themselves overtaken by the sheer beauty of his musical expression.

Smooth Jazz Vocalist/Actor - Nicolas Bearde

After honing his art and craft for many years with discipline and singular imagination, Bay Area-based vocalist Nicolas Bearde is finding broader recognition. A supremely gifted singer/entertainer who is fluent in soul, jazz and R&B stylings, Bearde has been compared to vocal icons like Lou Rawls, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, and Jon Lucien. But such comparisons fail to capture his vocal artistry or do justice to his musical accomplishments on record or in performance.
