Jackie Highway is the 1 ­woman musical adventure of multi­ instrumentalist Angie Shyr. Bound to the road from a young age, Shyr's formative years were molded around classical music lessons. Having mastered the piano and violin, bass and beat ­making, and intent to leave no musical stone unturned, she pounced on any opportunity that came her way, performing with the likes of Guster, Led Zeppelin, The B­52s, TheTemptations, and The O’Jays. With bags packed full of inspiration, Jackie Highway was born.

Born artist Joshua " JE the VANDL" Ellis to the core. As an animation graduate from the elite Art Instituteof Atlanta, he truly has an understanding and passion about the arts, which has lead to a higher level of artistry. Inspired by hip hop legends like Jay­Z, LL Cool J, Kool Moe Dee, Big Daddy Kane, and Mos Def, JE had made a name for himself with his unique and unparalleled approach to music. By combining intricate and involved metaphors and similes with witty and intelligent punch lines, his music gives a refreshing twist to "the art of storytelling".
