John Stringer is a life teacher, speaker, Billboard charting singer-songwriter, healer, and author with a passion for music, community, expansion and limitless love & light.

"I’ve been involved with music since I can remember, thanks largely to my mother’s musical influence. She sang daily around the house, at church, or wherever, and it rubbed off on me. Plus, she pushed me to sing in church, etc., even when I didn’t want to.. and I’m glad she did. I started writing music in the early 90’s with the intent of empowering others and have continued since. I’m now speaking and performing to share the music I’ve been given and I’m grateful to connect with / make new friends everywhere I go."

He began receiving direct knowing from Source / Spirit on-demand (aka channeling) with his wife, Kathy Stringer, in 2008. John aligns to speak publicly, write music & lyrics; serve others in group, remote & one-on-one channeling sessions; and write content for his websites and books that share the teachings he continues to receive.

John has written and recorded several albums (including a co-written top 10 best selling Billboard chart hit single with his former rock band, State of Man) and has performed throughout the world (including tours for U.S. Armed Forces). His music has been featured on major network television and he has also appeared in national print ads (Rolling Stone, VIBE, SPIN, Vanity Fair, etc.).

Deeply soulful, with her bombastic belt and she sings of self-love, open-mindedness, and the holiness of everything. She has created 10 CDs that are available on her website (amysteinberg.net).

Yasmin Williams

Yasmin Williams is an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist with an unorthodox, modern style of playing. Her music has been commonly described as refreshing, relaxing, and unique and has been called some of the most imaginative guitar music out today. She utilizes various techniques including alternate tunings, percussive hits, and lap tapping in her music to great effect. She has won various local talent shows, was a finalist in the Rolling Stones Young Gun guitar competition, was the Grand prize winner of New York University's Ultra Violet Live talent show, and won the Gold Prize in the Instrumental category of the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. She has been featured on several radio and television programs including New Sounds Soundcheck Podcast, NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday show, NPR Night Owl, NPR All Songs Considered, Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, and WUSA9, along with high profile magazine features such as Acoustic Guitar Magazine and Vintage Guitar Magazine.

She grew up in northern Virginia where various genres of music from smooth jazz to hip-hop were played in her household. She was introduced to the guitar after playing the video game Guitar Hero 2 and became interested in playing the guitar in 2009. She begged her parents to buy her a real electric guitar and once she received her first guitar and amplifier, she taught herself how to play the guitar by ear. After a few years of playing the electric guitar, she taught herself how to play the bass guitar, 12 string guitar, and classical guitar before eventually deciding to switch her focus to the acoustic guitar because of the instrument's versatility. While in high school, she released her first EP Serendipity in 2012, which she recorded and mixed herself.

She graduated from New York University with a BM in Music Theory and Composition in December 2017. Her first album, Unwind, was released on May 4, 2018 and is available on all major streaming services and Bandcamp. The album has charted highly on several Amazon and iTunes charts including top paid albums, including charting at #7 on Amazon’s top paid albums and #1 on iTunes‘s Folk chart, and charted at #15 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. She is currently working on her second album, Urban Driftwood, which is slated to be released in early 2021.
