Sayuri Elsie, is a upcoming L.A. local soul singer that comes with a wide story. Facing the tough life in L.A. country and traveling to Japan to live a separate life, Sayuri has a vast story to tell.
I first met Sayuri at a monthly Hip Hop event thrown by DJ WAX entitled “Beat Canves”. The event was full of local Japanese and American talent playing some of the most soulful music. During the performance of a couple DJs and this beat making group called Circus, there was a girl who was just jamming along on the dance floor. Come to find out, this girl was Sayuri Elsie. She lipsynced one of her songs, which was produced by one of the members of Circus. After meeting her and hearing her story, I realized she had a little bit more soul then your average.
Check out her live performances at 2nd Street Jazz during the New Year Celebration. Sayuri has tons of energy in her performance and great stage presence.
Make sure you follow her on twitter @Sayuri_Elsie

SonnyBCreative Fam, JULIAN NAGANO, brings in the new year with his new joint “Happy New Year 2012″ feat. Hanzo Reiza. I don’t think anyone could have brought in the new year as smooth as JULIAN did. Big Up homie!
Download his new track below.
For the past 3 years I’ve make two short documentary type films for the newest crossing class in my fraternity each year. I took a different approach this time and decided to use my state of creativity to speak a message rather than just to be a simple recap.
Check out “Alone.” it’s based off the tales and stories of our recently crossed brother, Jonathon Dominguez (Rho Class). Shout outs to all my fraternity brothers of BYΔ.
