SOLJOI77 is an original Alternative R&B band, blending the flavors of Neosoul, Electronic/Dance, and Jazz. Composed of singer/lyricist CHAYA and producer/composer Chris on keys; their songs explore love, empowerment, and spirituality encompassing positive energy. CHAYA expresses herself in ornate language flowing between earthy vocals and spoken word, set over the soundscape of Chris’ euphoric and sensual compositions. For the live SOLJOI77 experience, catch them with Matt on bass, Dave on drums, and David on electric guitar for a romantic, fun, and uplifting vibe. Taylor Plas is an Americana/Soul/Folk singer/songwriter based in New York.

She has performed with some of the biggest names in jazz, as well as performed at a multitude of festivals and concert houses around the globe As a progressive composer and arranger, Orange County Arts Council’s music committee, composed of professional musicians throughout the region, have developed a creative solution to support musicians.
