Ceux Qui Marchent Debout have reinvented the concept of the traditional brass band and come up with an exciting new formula for the 1990’s. With their infectious mix of funk, ska and soul fused with pounding African and Latino rhythms, this six-strong group is guaranteed to get the party going wherever they play!
With a smile that will entrance you and a voice that helps your troubles disappear, Quiana Lynell’s vocal dexterity allows her to perform a limitless repertoire. Infusing her classical training with her gospel upbringing she approaches jazz as a storyteller. When Lynell takes the stage, she guides the listeners on a journey where “jazz collides with soul” allowing the simplest of melodies to entrance the listener. Lynell creates an environment where love is paramount, emphasizing the importance of self-worth and respect through her music. She speaks uplifting lyrics to those who have been broken hearted and stresses the importance of not letting the past dictate your future. Her new EP entitled "Loving Me" guides the listener through Lynell’s own transformation. The transition to finding her self-worth has lead Lynell on a journey that has also included health and fitness. As the creator of "Musicians Run", she sponsors weekly meet-ups for musicians to meet and exercise promoting health as a wealth.
Lynell sees each opportunity to share music with any audience as a chance to create memories and build the soundtrack of life. Whether she is leading the band or supporting other artist, she is thankful to have the opportunity to sketch new memories that last a lifetime.
