Maggie Benoit’s objective is to produce enriching experiences that bolster the arts alongside entrepreneurial efforts in Atlanta. Her focus is to strengthen a community driven network, a conversation, a connection to resources and a place for beings to express constructively. This way the individual and community grow by staying curious, asking questions, creating solutions, as well as learning constructs of both personal and social space. The question arises, “how does one define the ability to connect the intimately personal to another tangibly?” Such an expression means finding love for self, love for another, love for something that holds meaning. Sharing said experience defines a landscape of varied media through intentional integration of work and life.
Billboard charting artist, Ruby Velle was born in Canada, raised in the Gainesville, FL, and has been making a name for herself in the Atlanta, GA scene as a cultural alchemist expressing matters of the soul. Her singles have been shared as both iTunes and Starbucks “Pick of the Week” tracks. As a frontwoman to a band, “Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics,” she has shaped the hearts and minds of the public in a positive way as her words of empowerment ring out loud and clear. In 2018, Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics released their sophomore album “State of All Things” to industry acclaim and a fan base championing their indie/DIY mentality. Ruby has performed alongside some legendary musicians such as Corey Glover, Bernard Purdie, Lee Fields, Gary Clark Jr., Fred Wesley, and Binky Griptite.
