biography

Darius Motes aka Kal Duzay was born in the neighborhoods of Hollywood Florida.

He inherited some of his Dad's passion for music. He started rapping and performing in school talent shows at the age of 14yrs where he gained the respect from his elders and peers about his song writing and rapping abilities.

A local music manager called Marlon then tapped out the young Kal Duzay and the collaboration ended in them producing a mix tape entitled Take 1 which became an instant hit on the streets. The success of the mix tape brought him into contact with George Dukes, a promoter in South beach Florida who became Duzay's new manager and ended up being the only unsigned act to perform at DJ Khaled's birthday party along big names such as Fat Joe, Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Keisha Cole, Rick Ross, Jim Jones, T.I. and Lil Wayne.

biography

Kevin Hendricks aka 'Kevo Hendricks', 'Kevo Da kid' or 'lil Kev' is an all-around entertainer born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and raised between there and Decatur, Georgia.

His type of music is a mixed style between Hip Hop and Pop music, something himself describes as HIP POP.

Looking up to artists such as Lil Wayne, T.I., Busta Rhymes and Eminem, Kevo likes to mix his music styles up in such a manner that allows him to shine on records no matter what type of track it is.
It doesn't stop there though, Kevo sees himself more than just an entertainer and he pays close attention to successful entrepreneurs such as 50 Cent and Jay-Z who have excelled in both music and business ventures and Kevo plans on using music and acting as a vehicle to emulate their achievements.
Kevo found his passion in music at the age of 10 moving to higher heights when he first heard his song played on the radio and was quite pleased he was sending a message people could relate to from his music.

This young prospect used the advantage of the release of his popular song titled "Just You" which placed well on the regional scanners a few years after to perform and tour with top notch artists such as B5, Loon, Juvenile, Trill Ville, Paul Wall, and many more.
He was also wrecking stages opening up for prospects such as Lil Wayne, Lil Flip, Pleasure P, Avont, DJ Unk, Tamia, Gucci Mane, Mack 10, Choppa, Lil Webbie, and more.
As of now Kevo has been in 2 movies titled "In the Hive" featuring the late Michael Duncan, Vivica Fox, and Loretta Divine and has just starred in another movie titled " Life Of A King" with Cuba Gooding Jr.

Kevo has just signed with Upper11 Music. His mixtape High Class Life Low Life Mentality (HC3LM) is set to release end of  June 2014 and features appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Kurupt, Yung Berg, Ab Soul and Kalduzay  etc. It also has production appearances from Young Chop, Drumma Boi, DJ Montay, DJ Spinz and Audio Dope. His intention for this project is to simply tell his story, and let the world know why he's so passionate about his craft.

biography

Justice is more than a principle to hard rock legends-in-the-making Rev Theory. It is the sound of amplified thunder and the energy of the stage, harnessed in the studio and captured on an album that makes Rev Theory the standard bearer for rock that blends heaviness with heart.

For proof, check Rev Theory's eight-year history. They have toured relentlessly since Julien Jorgensen, Rich Luzzi, Dave Agoglia and bassist Matt McCloskey formed the group on Long Island in 2002. Between 2005 Truth is Currency and their initial breakthrough 2008 Light It Up ” whose title track became the theme for WrestleMania XXIV and launched Rev Theory's high-profile musical relationship with World Wrestling Entertainment the band spent hundreds of thousands of miles in a van to play roughly 250 dates each year. That trek included opening slots on tours with many of the artist's they respect, which included Avenged Sevenfold, and others.

"What we learned from being close to all those great bands was that we needed to define our identity, to pinpoint the qualities that truly make us Rev Theory," Julien explains. "That meant drawing on their deepest roots, as both musicians and men. We had to be honest about the music that inspires us, from punk rock to classic metal, and grunge to pop," he continues. "Then we needed to discover what we were really passionate about as people, and that is honor, truth, love and respect. Those are the qualities that define each and every one of us." As an album, Justice embodies these values. In Julien's words, "As a band, we have rallied around the belief that with this album our time has come and we are going to grab it."
