Artist Bios

Sans Holo

Featuring a distinctive creative style that has been meticulously honed throughout the years, Dutch artist/producer San Holo fits high on the list of new trailblazers in electronic music. 

San has a background in music, receiving a music degree from Codarts University of the Arts in Rotterdam. In 2014, he took a friend’s advice and started adding his production skills to some classic hip hop songs, shapeshifting them into his own remixes and putting them up on YouTube. 

His re-working of Dr. Dre’s classic “The Next Episode” blew up on the blogosphere and SoundCloud community, launching San’s future in the process—garnering over 100 million YouTube views. He followed that release with his hypnotic single “We Rise” in early 2015, where he received Skrillex’s praise and attention.  Later in 2015, he established himself as being at the forefront of the future bass sound through the release of his Victory EP with Monstercat and singles “IMISSU” and “Can’t Forget You” with Spinnin. Released in 2016, the track “Light” (released on San’s co-founded label bitbird) has hit nearly 50 million streams on Spotify—garnering traction and airplay throughout the global dance music ecosystem. San Holo recently released the tracks “The Future” ft. James Vincent McMorrow, “I Still See Your Face,” “One Thing,” The Trip EP, and “Right Here, Right Now”. 

He has played around the world, including at the legendary Tomorrowland, and will hit the Coachella stage later this year 2018.

STL Rapper Loyaltyy

Born and raised in the heart of South St. Louis, Loyaltyy takes his Show Me State” upbringing and has done just that—creating buzz for himself by offering an extensive array of artistry from rapping and singing, to songwriting and dance.

Priding himself on never being afraid to be different, Loyaltyy (born Henry Hunter) has portrayed star-quality characteristics from a very young age, participating in everything from theatre, dance, choir and drumline as a release from the disappointments in life.

“I stayed busy to stay out of trouble. I grew up in a city where it was one life or the other, and I used music as a way to release,“ Loyaltyy said. “Loyalty was scarce growing up. I often saw too many people lose themselves to the streets, I swore I would always be loyal to who I am.”

Loyaltyy spent the last few years perfecting his craftsmanship, mastering his vocals and growing an audience of a multinational fan base. His versatile sound and mesmerizing stage performance easily set him apart from other artists, drawing various crowds, and performing in multiple shows, including The Ice Cold Tour, the Midwest Empire, the Sound of St. Louis, Redbird Showcase, and Power Moves Tour.

Loyaltyy has released a steady stream of original visuals and singles, resulting in a positive response. His recent summer single “Hey Girl” earned 20k + views on Facebook in just 24 hrs, reflecting the influence his music has on anyone who listens.

Holding the title of “St. Louis’s Best Unsigned Talent”, Loyaltyy has gained industry consultation from Nerve’s DJs & Def Jams own Big Heff—and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. He is currently working on completing his 5-track EP titled NTE (Never Trust Easy), coming {date}.

Davis Mallory

(long form / interview)

MTV’s Real World 2006 alum Davis Mallory has traded TV cameras for a DJ booth, proving that he refuses to be put in a box.

Growing up in the south, in a very masculine culture, Mallory saw gay men feminized on TV, and wanted to be a masculine gay character on TV to showcase a different way of ‘being gay.’ With that, in 2006 he left Marietta, Georgia and headed to Denver, where that season of the Real World was filmed.

“I was a fan of the show and wanted to take part. I just came out and felt like I had an interesting thing going on in my life at the time that would play itself out well on TV for other people in my same shoes.”

With family ties in the music industry, Mallory had always established a love for music, but it wasn’t until years later that he started creating original music of his own. Mallory lived in NYC for 2 years, working as the Marketing Coordinator at Astralwerks (label home to David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, NERVO, Eric Prydz). It was there that he attended a lot of DJ sets, learned to DJ at Dubspot School of Electronic Music, and began songwriting–initially writing toplines over EDM beats some producers gave him. In August 2013, he left Astralwerks and moved to Nashville to pursue songwriting and begin recording his own original music.

“The great thing about Nashville is practically everyone moves here for music: your barista at a coffee shop, your Uber driver … everyone is a musician. And, it’s a very collaborative city, where people make shirts jokingly that say “We should write together” since everyone writes songs together as a trial date.”In his first few years in Nashville, Mallory wrote an incredible amount of songs. In his first two years, he wrote music with Roger Murrah (BMI Songwriter of the Decade), Scot Sax (Grammy winner for Tim McGraw/Faith Hill’s “Like We Never Loved At All”), Matraca Berg (3-time Grammy nominated songwriter for Dixie Chicks, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride), Robert Ellis Orrall (producer of Taylor Swift’s debut album) and many more up-and-coming artists. “I went to a lot of Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith’s concerts and even spent summers at Amy’s farm riding her horses and going fishing in her lake. Both of these artists greatly inspired me and encouraged me to pursue my own career. My uncle was dating an Australian award-winning Christian singer named Michelle Tumes – and she really encouraged me to pursue music as well.”His first ‘official release’ was a song that he wrote in tribute to his MTV co-star Diem Brown, who in 2014, passed away from cancer.

“I had already written about 50 or so songs at that date, but nothing had really been released online. When Diem passed away, I had a co-write [in Nashville] the week that it happened and brought into the room an idea that says “Beautiful girls aren’t supposed to die young” and released the song a week later.”

Off the heels of that People-magazine featured track, Mallory continued writing, releasing his second official release with the same co-writers of “Beautiful Girls” titled “Anyone Would Know,” a song about his ex-boyfriend in NYC. The song was chosen by Swedish DJ John Dahlback to remix, and this remix would go on to be Mallory’s first label song, signing to Armada Records in 2016 and released in the summer 2017.

Since then, Mallory has grown as a songwriter and musician, releasing his EP Loud in 2017, and working with some of the biggest names in the business–co-writing a song with American Idol alum Matt Giraud titled “Faded” (2017), co-writing “Hold Me Down” (2018) by EDM vocalist Notelle and German DJ Noize Generation, co-writing “Top of the World” (2018) by vocalist Mitchell Rose and DJ Landis that released in 2018 on Sony/Thrive, “Dance with Me” co-written by Mallory and produced by French DJ Loic Penillo, “Thinking of U” which was signed to Warner Denmark’s Quattro Records, and featured in many Spotify House playlists.

“I guess if I had to describe myself, I would say I’m a pop singer-songwriter. My influences blend with Country, being based in Nashville for a long time and raised in Georgia, but I gravitate towards EDM music. I like Shawn Mendes and John Mayer style music, but then Calvin Harris style productions. Even Prince has a big influence on my music at times, with a Pop-Rock Synth Pop space.”He’s also had several of his tracks remixed by world-renowned DJ’s, including Miami’s DJ Landis who remixed “Loud” (Cedric Gervais’ label Delecta Records), Swedish DJ Kaag who produced “Pitter Patter” (Warner Denmark’s Quattro Records), Algerian DJ Randall who remixed “Sun and Moon” (Chicago record label Kitchin Records), Peruvian DJ Aaron Marz who produced “Lost,” and many others.

“In addition to these varied DJ collaborations, I have been writing for my own debut album and am finishing up with the songs and production with a Swedish producer named Johannes Andersson. I wrote most of the songs while in Stockholm on 3 separate writing trips in 2017-2018.”

Keeping busy, Mallory also has forthcoming projects with Italian model and actor Federico Constantini, an official remix of the song “Blue” by Eiffel 65 released in March 2019 with producer Alex Pizzuti & Adalwolf, a new track with Italian DJ group DJs From Mars coming April 2019 on Italian label Ego, and a song with Danish producer DEX to be released on Sony Orchard worldwide in 2019.

“I make music to leave a legacy behind when I die.  The music will live on after me, and I desire to make beautiful music as my life’s legacy.”

Whether on TV or in the studio, it’s clear that Davis Mallory has no intention of stopping anytime soon.
