Gordon Chambers – The Teaneck, New Jersey native is currently signed to L.A. Reid’s prestigious Hitco Music publishing company where has written for over 60 recording artists, including household names Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah, Usher, Brandy, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan and Marc Anthony.
He is best known for his 1994 Grammy- winning hit “I Apologize” for Anita Baker and his 1995 #1 Grammy-nominated smash “If You Love Me” for the trio Brownstone (which was later featured as the theme song of the film “Living Out Loud”).

More recently, the eight-time ASCAP winner penned tunes for superstars The Isley Brothers (“Just Came Here To Chill”), Yolanda Adams (“Someone Watching Over Me”), Patti Labelle & Ron Isley (“Gotta Go Solo”), Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown (“My Love”), R&B crooner Carl Thomas (“My Valentine”), breakthrough soul singer Angie Stone “No More Rain (In This Cloud)” and pop sensation Beyonce (“After All Is Said And Done”). Over the years, his compositions have been performed at the ESSENCE awards, the American Music Awards and the Goodwill Games–as well as six major motion pictures.

SHOTA SHIMIZU (SHOTA) Hailing from Osaka, Japan, Shota Shimizu (SHOTA) is a 20 year-old singer/songwriter with an exceptional talent. Along with studying gospel at a local music school, his fascination with soul music has led him to create his own unique style — strong yet sensual singing incorporating hip-hop influenced vocal delivery. In 2007, he received much acclaim for his performance on stage at New York’s world famous Apollo Theater and made his debut from Sony Music in following spring. SHOTA also made successful second New York appearance at Central Park headlining annual JAPAN DAY FESTIVAL performing in front of several thousand New Yorkers.

SHOTA’s debut album reached #2 on the album chart in late 2008, and his subsequent singles have been a series of smash hits with over 2 million D/L per title.
In March 2nd, 2010, SHOTA is back to New York City making a special guest appearance at SOBs R&B Showcase as he releases his sophomore album back home.
