As a leader, Brad has released five albums, four with his quartet, the most recent being the 2005 release "What Is," and one with his piano trio, the 2004 release, "Question the Answer," nominated for a 2005 Canadian Urban Music Award, and a 2006 Canadian Indie Music award.Multi-instrumentalist Byron House (banjo, guitar, dulcimer, trumpet, bassoon, percussion, piano) became a convert to the bass at age 17 after hearing Jaco Pastorius on Weather Report's "Heavy Weather." Byron says, "I went home and did some woodshedding for a year, playing his records over and over." In the mid-1980s, Byron packed his bass and left his hometown of Bowling Green, Ky., to relocate in Nashville.

Tracey Edmonds This girl from Cali is now the Chief Operating Officer and President of Our Stories Films, a film production company that focuses on urban audiences, in addition to being the CEO of her own production firm, Edmonds Entertainment.

That second title is interesting to us, because she started this enterprise with her then-husband Babyface, the cool crooner who knew a mix of beauty and brains when he saw it.

Edmonds was certainly an accomplished woman way before she met Babyface, having earned a degree from Stanford in psychobiology.

But it was not until her marriage to Babyface that her entertainment career blossomed.

Rather than using her beauty in front of the camera, Tracey focused on the creative ideas that drove some of our community’s favorite movie and TV programming, such as the film and television versions of “Soul Food.” Now divorced from the pop star that provided her gateway into the entertainment field, Edmonds has a career that outshines his in terms of money-making power and cultural influence.
