Sensational Duo J.A. & THA PREZ Signed by Audiostate 55 Entertainment!

By SOP newswire2

1.4.12 - Audiostate 55 Entertainment! is proud to announce the signing of the collective style of J.A. & THA PREZ to its recording label. Brothers J.A. (Justin Arrington) and THA PREZ (Adam Arrington) have been exciting audiences with their brand of positive pop and praise party music. Having been featured at The Basement, the explosive Christian youth movement led by Mat Pitt, J.A. & THA PREZ`s presentation is amazingly creative and fresh and provides a wonderful alternative for those seeking youthful, positive, and wholesome pop music.

Award-winning producer, arranger, and conductor Dr. Henry Panion, president and founder of Audiostate 55 Entertainment! says J.A. & THA PREZ were exactly what we were looking for to complete the roster of artists on the label, which includes Overfloe Jazz, Church Boy, Curtiss Glenn & Free2Worship, Neo Collective, and Denita Gibbs, whose single, "Nothing Better Than You" is soon to be released.

J.A. & THA PREZ was formed while Justin and Adam were students at Oral Roberts University (Adam served as SGA "PREZ" president) where they were quickly recognized for their exceptional talent, showcasing a captivating and exhilarating stage presence. In just their short existence J.A. & THA PREZ has been afforded the opportunity to open for the likes of Canton Jones, Sho Baraka, and Mase.

In the crowded space of pop and hip-hop, Dr. Panion says, "If a new group doesn`t have anything new and fresh to offer, why bother." But upon witnessing J.A. & THA PREZ, he states, "Once you see and hear J.A. & THA PREZ, you will be a believer. They have so much to offer." Audiostate 55 Entertainment! will have J.A. & THA PREZ in the studio immediately working to release their first single.
