DJ Come of Age is an inspiration to the unheralded independents across the globe. With a mixing style poised to grasp the ears of soul enthusiasts, he crafts mixes that are the delight of fans worldwide. As a DJ, Come of Age has to move the crowd. One element that separates him from commercial jocks is that of finding aspiring talent. "For me it is rather simple. I play what touches my soul. It's a vibe session for me. When I hear a song I'm passionate about, it makes me want to share with others. I began reaching out to people that share my same vision, my same drive, my vibe. Ultimately it was easier to work with the independent artists. People like Menoosha, DJ Tobi-Wan, Semokee, the Brass King, and others. I know if I am feelin' their unique styles, others will do the same."

Despite the continued success COA remains humble. He realized that there are many markets to be reached and it's important that solid relationships are established. All of this takes time but it's also a lot of fun. "I wouldn't trade my job for anything in the world. With the internet, the world becomes your audience and all we have to do is set the stage. Judge for yourself and sample the tracks. If you find that it moves you too then you'll begin to understand why I smile so much (lol).

Why this name?
It accentuated the perfect timing and the fusing of many talents and many people with the same goal: to share their love of music and at the same time, never miss a meal (smile).
Do you play live?
Lyon, France and various stateside clubs! Currently promoting the new cds "Unheralded-The Neo Soul Project" which is due out 15 February 2005. Also, the EP "Hidden Souls" which is at CD Baby and "Homegrown" by Wendisue. They provide a perfect introduction to our sound.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It definitely levels the playing field in many respects. The majority of my fans are people who have found and downloaded my sound from the internet. The mixes posted at are a perfect example. I tap the internet on a daily basis to reach out to the masses.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I personally wouldn't but many of the artists I work with are looking for a good deal. We're optimistic about it and cherish the artistic freedoms independents have.

Goapele, Loose Ends, Soul 2 Soul, Masters at Work, DJ Spinna, Marley Marl, Run DMC, DJ Cut Killer, Fertile Ground, Deyampert, Carmen Rodgers

Anything else...?
Downloads for Dollars" is a new program which will raise money for charities and notable causes. Designed by DJ COA, it is designed to bring attention and support for those in need.

Starting September 1st, anytime you download the song "From A Window" by Slowmo on iTunes, MSN Music, and other services, thirty cents will go to help raise money for Alec's ABA therapy and school expenses. Many of these costs are not covered by insurance and it is up to the family to pay the bill.

You may also contribute by purchasing the new album "Hidden Souls 2" at CD Baby .com! Each cd sold will raise two dollars for Alec's expenses. Take part now in this wonderful program which will raise awareness of autism and its effects on families. To learn more about autism, visit us at the links below.
