Jacksonville artists Ebonique, Broadway Louie and Kearsten Monielle, along with DJ Larry Love, will perform as part of the Sing Out Loud festival’s 904 Soul showcase on Saturday, September 9 at Dog Rose Brewing in St. Augustine’s historic district.
The showcase was put together by Mr. Al Pete, the Jacksonville hip-hop artist, DJ, media mogul and contributor to the Jacksonville Music Experience.
“These are all artists that have been working consistently on their craft and putting out new music,” said Mr. Al Pete about the lineup he’s curated. “They have great content that needs to be on the main stage more, and hopefully [the showcase] is a step forward.”

Savvy JME supporters will surely recognize the artists headlining the 904 Soul showcase. Singer and songwriter Ebonique earned local buzz for her four-song EP Edge Control. Her latest single is “Respectfully.”
Broadway Louie pinged our radar in the spring with the retro stylings of his 13-song release, Magick, which features the bouncy, summertime jam “lookin‘.” Kearsten Monielle‘s latest is Flutters, an EP that showcases her impressive range and agile vocal skills.
