What does a smart and sassy woman, a visionary male leader, a sensual Brazilian woman, an adventurous single man and a social, Chicago-native male all have in common? What they have in common is great sound, wonderful voices, talent, chemistry and synergy. And they are called- RefleXions.
RefleXions band started 15 yers ago with a vision given to the leader, Marcellus Crews-or just Crews. RefleXions started as a gospel and “a capella” group. Over the years the band has evolved in the great Pop/R&B band love by many today. The current members are the sassy Ashley Calloway, the visionary Marcellus Crews (Crews), the sensual Ariane Pereira (Ari), the adventurous Rodney Johnson (Rod), and the social Wayde Bryant.
Today the band works tirelessly to promote their sound, look, branding and above all use their God-given talent to bless their audience. RefleXions is looking to be a different voice in the music world. While they sing popular cover songs, they also write their own music. Their music reflects relevant issues for everyone but with a positive vibe and message. Their music pushes against some of today’s music to offer listeners something different – great music with a great message.
When asked what they felt about the group, here is what they had to say:
Ashley (as the newest member of the group): “A new experience. I am learning and growing a lot as a singer, songwriter, and performer my time here in the group. I think all of the elements are coming together. I can’t wait to see our dreams come to life”
Wayde: “Where I see RefleXions going is being able to reach the masses world wide with our positive message. We want to encourage living morally correct lifestyles and spread love. We would like to bring back elements in the music industrial that has seemed to have been diminished which is harmony and romance.”
Crews: “RefleXions is a unique band on a mission to spread their artist approach around to listening audiences.”
Rod: “Reflexions opens doors to different styles and approaches that I would probably not explore on my own as a musician…and having an appreciation for all types of music and walks of life, thats a huge plus. I also value the comradery of writing and performing on stage with these 4 incredibly talented artists.”
Ari: “RefleXions is sanity to me, it is the place where I get to do what I love most which is sing with people I admire and respect both musically and personally. We are family.”
Where are they headed in the future? Reflexions is working to move their music from a grassroots local band to a national and international sensation. They spend countless hours in their recently built studio, hammering out new songs, refining their sound and making the right contacts to make it happen. They know it is not easy but what they also know is they cannot give up on the vision given to Crews to make music, use their talents and give the world a taste of hot, raw and wonderful music…giving the music world what it needs – REFLEXIONS!
