                 Undisputed Hustlers

                         In his debut EP, A Conversation at the Witz Inn, Nolfris “Slim KuttaR”                                       Williams incorporates a diverse mix including jazz, hip-hop, and classical

                         in each of his songs. Slim KuttaR says his music “is about having fun and                               enjoying life no matter where you are on the journey.”

                         Born in Birmingham, Alabama and raised in New Orleans, Slim KuttaR                                   developed an eclectic range of musical tastes from the hard driving vocal                                 styling of the gospel quartet to the syncopated rhythms of the second line. He                    draws upon this influence in both his own music, and his very formidable                               work behind the scenes with other artists.

                         Aside from his passion for music, Slim KuttaR is a lover of history and                                     basketball. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a minor                             in History from Green Mountain College. He also played professional                                         basketball in North America and Europe.



LeTrainiump Music

LeTrainiump Richard is a Black pop singer/songwriter from Mamou, Louisiana the zydeco capital

“alive”. Only three years ago, he began pursuing a music career in earnest and has already amassed a

list of collaborators including members of the Grammy-nominated Tank and the Bangas, Grammy-

winning engineer Reginald “ReggieNic” Nicholas, as well as Pell, Alfred Banks and HaSizzle.

LeTrainiump “sings, composes, and produces pop music that blends the likes of Michael Jackson,

New Edition and SWV, flavored with a synthesized something that revamps the ’90s pop spirit that

he embodies.” -OffBeat Magazine

His new EP Purity includes the scintillating tracks “Control” and “Lost?” and the poignant “Belong”.

As he forges ahead with a newborn daughter and manager-creative director wife, LeTrainiump

hopes Purity serves as an entrypoint into a larger conversation about the breadth of contributions

made by Black musicians to the genre of pop, as well as the music industry’s history of relegating

Black pop artists into R&B or other boxes.

In early 2010, Deborah Evans and Deborah Mannis-Gardner met face-to-face after years of working together via email and telephone.

They connected instantly. Both Deborahs have a similar vision, work ethic, knowledge and experience, and together

they knew that a publishing and clearance partnership would not only serve their individual music companies well, but would also be a first rate resource for songwriters who needed solid, hands on, proactive administration, promotion, and clearances.

DMG and Della Music Publishing jointly administer the catalogues of Reggie Noble, Erick Sermon and numerous other writers. Additionally, Della Music often assists with music clearance projects which are the focus of DMG Clearances Inc.

Together they reach out almost daily to new songwriters, as well as, seasoned composers who are looking for a

smaller independent publisher whose primary focus is on the songwriter – not on the income that the songwriter brings in.

The songwriter is our #1 priority and every songwriter receives our full attention, no matter what the issue.

Please visit for more information and for DMG fees.
