Davon Israel is an African American musician, writer, designer, and artist from Arlington, Virginia.
His newest track is called, “Tennis” and it is the second single release after his debut EP, “An Ode to A Sinner.” As we listened to “Tennis” we got Summertime vibes, that reminded us of better times, when it wasn’t quarantine and there were barbeques, and many large gatherings. Israel says, “Tennis is a summertime indie song joyfully describing the psyche fluctuations we all too often find ourselves in after leaving someone that we still share a connection to.” The song pairs Isreal’s melodic crooning with an upbeat guitar riff, as he compares his relationships to Tennis matches, where he and his lover are going “back and forth” between happiness for one’s connection and moroseness for what it could/used to be. We think this track is great for family gatherings, and just any fun get-together! Check out the track below.

Rumy Love was born to Iranian Muslim immigrants in Maryland, but spent majority of his life in Northern Virginia. When he was seven years old along with his family they relocated to Iran which was a huge culture shock for him. Iran is a country with a fascist regime, culturally very different from the United States. “I went from listening to Madonna, and New Kids On The Block, to getting arrested for listening to Pop music… Living in two totally different countries has influenced, and shaped me as a artist.”
In 1996 Rumy moved back to the United States. “I remember being exposed to so many different artists like, No Doubt, Puff Daddy, Coolio, Aaliyah, Mariah Carey, Missy, TLC, Metallica, Jarool, Ashanti, Naz, Red Hot Chilly Peppers” This was during a time when Pop, R&B, and Hiphop where at the forefront of mainstream media. Not only is Rumy influenced by Persian music because of his time spent in Iran, but also by the pop music he began hearing once he came back to the United States.
