LADII TC Eckstein, Vocalese
I am very Blessed to be a part of the musician world of POZE PRODUCTIONS. I look forward to networking with musicians as I am a SOLO recording artist working with Studio Rebels I am Grateful For Much Of The Love n Motivational Support of my Sister/Cousins Charlotte Carolle and Arnaldo, Dakota, Lily-Almonte and Gary Eckstein.
I Fell in Love with Music since infancy, My Parents told me It was the only thing that soothed me and gave me vivid beautiful dreams as I grew and it became my place of Tranquility and Equilibrium. I have had a love relationship with God and Music that no other relationship could ever rise above. No matter what was going on in my life music always had a place that gave me wholeness, self expression and self-esteem since early Childhood.
My Journey throughout the music business has for most of my life been one of performing and developing my Craft for God and Inspiring others. Born Theresa Eckstein , a native of Springfield, MA I Have been pursuing Music since 8 yrs old and earlier at home under direct training from my Father/Brother:Robert/Richard Eckstein 32 yrs veteran and mentor of WTCC radio 90.7 fm Great Black Music Jazz and trained in Music/Dance @ at Dunbar Music Community Program under Frank Hatchett and Souliman Music Director. I’ve been involved throughout all my schooling years in Church Choir, Community Music School and Youth Choir Directing etc, Later adding Top 40 bands and recording my first 2 Singles on the Physical Attraction CD Project and prior to that recorded with Ross Cogman Freestyle Music and R&B. My Jazz Movement grew in 2010 with the urging of my son to write more.
Having been led into the music industry via way of top artists who recognized my gifts and throughout my life has helped me too maintain consistency with creating music which in turn strengthened my knack for poetry and songwriting and now I’ve ventured out on Solo and Collaborative Projects.
My advice for any up and coming artists is to self , invest, promote and stay motivated no matter what. Never give up on your goals when you know deep down in your gut you will succeed and are the real deal. Utilize Social Media and the internet Professionally, never get caught up in tabloid like conversations, Be above that and stay Classy. Be ready to accept the negative and the positive and know in your soul attention is what counts, but how you carry yourself is and should reflect all about the good qualities they love in your music.
I don’t see music as Male dominated anymore, Women are making great strides and nothing can compare to a woman’s pouring her heart into song and words of strength that can identify with other women. A man can’t do it quite like a woman or sing a love song to a man she loves. I stay humble in that my gift is recognized as just that, and when I get feedback from fans that I have Blessed them with Inspiration and encouragement due to my music, My purpose in pleasing God is my reward. He comes 1st in my life. Without him I would never be able to do all the things that I can. I know it is he that is guiding me at all times and I a truly grateful for that, In that his will be done.

Missouri City, TX
I try and think back to my musical roots and where it all began. I remember a little kid lining up all of the neighborhood kids and have them sitting on the steps of my mothers house in the fifth ward area of Houston Texas and having an audience waiting for me to sing and once I was finished I had every one of them clap for me and say do it again.
I can remember the kid in me sitting on the porch listening to the older men in the neighborhood playing their guitars and singing old spirituals or blues from the front steps of my parents or relatives home. I always think of my favorite uncle “Willie Young Jr”
One the first musical icon’s of the blues here in the Houston Fifth Ward area of that time period. My uncle would sing the blues and I would listen for hours and try and learn as much form him as possible.
As a young musician I learned the guitar, piano, and sax in my middle school years and beyond. I first started a band at the age of 15 with two of my close middle school friends where we played in school talent shows and local events that we were allowed to for our age at the time.
I later learned more of my family musical and pastoral history as I became older and researched my family tree.
Webster was initially best known as a session musician behind Louisiana musicians on the Excello and Goldband record labels, such as Lightnin’ Slim and Lonesome Sundown. She also played piano with Otis Redding in the 1960s, but after his death went into semi-retirement.
In the 1980s she was repeatedly booked for European tours and recorded albums for the German record label, Ornament Records. She cut You Know That’s Right with the band Hot Links, and the album that established her in the United States; The Swamp Boogie Queen with guest spots by Bonnie Raitt and Robert Cray. She performed at both the San Francisco Blues Festival
I spoke with my aunt right before she was leaving again for an overseas tour and regret never meeting in personal and I dedicate my music and love of music to my family whose roots run deep in ministry and in music.
I have written and composed more than 5 albums and over 50 singles featured on iHeart Radio, You Tube, Pure Volume, Vimero, Spotify, Rhapsody, and eMusic.
L3v3L Three the band has won consecutive AKADEMIA music awards for Best Instrumental’s, Best R&B/Soul, Best Rock/Soul Album for the release of “Mellow Moods” and has maintained a REVERBNATION chart rating in the top 10 artist for R&B Soul in the Missouri City, Houston Texas area reaching #1 artist for eight weeks on the local charts & #43 for USA National charts.
Joining the POZE Production family of artist and musicians has been a welcomed venue for upcoming and unsigned artist in the industry to show case their talent and expand their brand of music and showmanship.

Entycee (N-Tice) is a singer/songwriter with style and vocals that match leading ladies in the industry both past and present. Born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania she grew up listening to singers like the late great Phyllis Hyman, Teena Marie and Vesta Williams in addition to those artist whom are still gracing us with their presents today such as Chaka Kahn and Miki Howard, the list goes on. Entycee developed her love for both singing and writing lyrics at the age of seven. Starting out as a member of Pittsburgh’s Morningside Church Of God and Christ youth, mass and state gospel choirs she studied and quickly mastered the art of harmonizing with precision and uses that skill to the fullest today. With intoxicating lyrics and sultry vocals she brings to the table a touch of old school fused with a new school musical vibe, a mixture of Neo-soul, Spoken word, RnB, and Rap.. She shows her listeners versatility by both arranging and performing vocals. “I love the old school sound and vibe and I work to portray that strength in my lyrics and music when it comes to laying my vocals. I focus on finding the right pitch and melody then build my harmony from there”. When ask whom she sounds like, she will humbly state, I sound like me! I am however musically influenced by beautiful soulful singers today such as Chrisette Michelle, Chante’ Moore, Ledisi, Jill Scott, Marshia Ambrosia and Vivian Green just to name a few and groups from the 80’s and 90’s such as The SOS band, Rose Royce, Shalamar, and Atlantic star. “I don’t believe in trying to pattern myself after anyone vocally because all voices are unique and mine has it’s own mark to leave and story to tell”. Someone who can attest to that unique sound she has is her long time producer Chazz Brooks of (C Brooks Productions) who’s music is the perfect match for her quality and sound. Music tells me what to write and his keeps me on my toes by pushing me to think outside the box. I enjoy and have a serious connection to the music we create together. Since 1996 Entycee and Chazz has formed a musical union that is leaving its mark in the industry. She has opened for Aaron Hall, Bone Thugs and Harmony’s Lazy Bone, Carl Payne, Jada Kiss and Samson and Deliliah. She has won local contests in her hometown of Pittsburgh Pa, including 1st place for female and Hip Hop/R&B vocalist back to back in the annual WAMO FM Radio talent showcase in 2002 and 2003. In 2004 after appearing as a guest on the June King show (aired locally in Pittsburgh) she hosted her own locally syndicated television show called “Introducing Masters In The Making” which was her way of giving back to the community that gave so much to her growing up. Her first installment featured Michael Fraizer former music production manager for Mr Tyler Perry. She captured the Miss Black Teenage Pageant (a 25 year mothers day tradition in Pittsburgh where she herself was a semifinalist at the age of 17) on film to pay homage to the pageants coordinator of 25 years Jean Bryant. In 2004 she showed her true colors for her football team the six time superbowl champions Pittsburgh Steelers when she co wrote and performed a anthem with former Rap artist Concrete entitled “Black & Gold” still heard at any football party across the country, Entycee personifies perfection through her singing, lyric writing, and vocal arranging and manages to catch the attention of major record labels and radio shows alike. Appearing on the GeeQuePalace blog talk radio show after the host heard her sizzling song entitled Secrets; I recall him telling me when I was invited to be a guest on the radio show that the reason for the invite was because of my smooth old school sound. He explained to me that he literally stopped eating his dinner and told his staff “I don’t care what you all have to do, find her I want her on my show” I was and am still humbled by his response. Entycee is currently in the studio completing her cd with producer Bj Evans aka Angelicvoices of Harlem New York under his new record label Angelicvoicesmusic. Her songs are holding steady in the single digits for R&B/Soul on the Reverbnation charts for the U.S. and can be heard in constant rotation on various internet radio stations including Urbanmelodyfm.web.com in Canada, Radio1617.com and Poze Radio to name a few. Her future is definitely looking bright. She was featured in the May 2012 issue of GeeQue Palace, The Indiegator, and Let It Flow interactive magazines, with an upcoming spot in, MWes Womens magazine due out this summer. She was just named winner and V.I.P. artist for the month of May 2013 from Poze Records/Poze Productions and was handed her first of three nominations by X Poze-ing Hollywood awards in June 2013 for one of her R&B songs entitled Can’t Go Back (music produced by Chazz Brooks) and her second and third in August 2013 as Singer/Songwriter and Best R&B artist which earned her, her first award as a singer/songwriter. She will be signing a deal in the near future and will be touring “My goal is to give my fans a taste of that which I grew up on sassy, soulful laid back feel good music that never gets old.

4ever Eternal is a rap group of several artists, including Base, Ggirl, Boom, and the Savage Bands based out of Chicago’s south side-Englewood. Base and Ggirl are the co-founders of 4ever Eternal Records. This brother and sister team plan to make it to the top with plans to trademark their own brand and prove that Chicago isn’t all drill music. We are a label for the people. Base was born to rap and believes that it is his calling. He has been rapping since he was a kid and got real serious with it approximately 15 years ago. He recently invested in a studio and got right to work. He is no stranger when it relates to hitting the mic because he looks at it as one of his ribs; he says, “The mic is a part of me.”
Ggirl being a rapper/writer/producer/engineer combines her original style with a Chicago-based twist. She has a flow like no other. Her lyrics kills the crowds and make you thirsty for more. Coming out to make an example out of these upcoming artists ain’t no thang for Ggirl. She puts it down, demolishes it, and brings it back to life whenever she hits the stage.
We have been in collaboration with Poze Productions/Poze Records Inc for over 10 years. Some of our influences are Master-P, Bones, 2pac, Missy Elliott, Mia X and life experience.

I’ve been a member of Poze Productions for over 6 years. I’ve been blessed to have KJ, Mike, and Harmony. They helped me in the music industry. I was just a singer without any music at all. I started taking singing lessons at an early age. I did shows and a group but nothing worked out. I thought I was ready for the music industry but I couldn’t get anyone to listen to me or work with me.
KJ and Mike worked with me for six months. They created my tracks with the lyrics that I had. They also worked with me for months on my stage presence and helped me with vocals. I really learned the difference working with professional musicians. They knew what I wanted and really made my lyrics come to life. KJ did a lot of the instrument playing and Mike organized my lyrics and helped me with everything. And even programmed a lot of stuff. They were very long hours but it was worth it. After being turned down time and time from record labels, the relatsed my singal and it blew it up. I got 2,000 hits in the first week. and 4,000 more hits the next week. Mike took me to the radio stations and to the clubs with my press kit and showed me how hard it is to make it in this business. Because of KJ and Mike, I finally got shows. Mike came to everyone. He made sure that I sounded great and played piano for me (live). I finally had a chance to play shows in Las Vegas. I feel so blessed because they never charged me a dime for all the hard work they put into my career. I’m working on a new album and giving support.
