Christofer “C-Money” Welter was born to be a musician. Welter, who hails from North Carolina and played in school marching bands, sees himself as following in the tradition of great southern trumpeters such as Louis Armstrong, Kermit Ruffins and Irvin Mayfield.
C-Money is best known for his work playing trumpet and keyboards in John Brown’s Body and Slightly Stoopid, two of the top reggae bands touring today. While in John Brown’s Body, C-Money recorded four full-length albums with the East Coast’s premiere reggae band and toured with them for eight years. In 2006, he moved west joining Slightly Stoopid and adding a new dimension and element to the band.
In 2010, C-Money released his second solo album, “Family Business,” garnering praise from ”Performer Magazine” who said, “The record offers the listener a serene feeling, along with empowering words from the various vocalists. Every track on the record is different - some have lyrics while others don't. The record takes the listener through various moods; some tracks feel spacey with an electronic vibe, while others are smoother, with a reggae twist.”
Fitting a robust tour schedule in between life on the road with Slightly Stoopid, C-Money and the Players Inc. have begun to make a name for themselves after touring consistently up and down the west coast for the past three years. The band’s reggae infused mix of funk/jam/jazz/hip-hop continues to delight crowds, as their ever-growing fan base is exposed to C-Money and the Players Inc’s unique concert experience.

Tanya Stephens

Tanya Stephens is just what I like in a Reggae singer songwriter. This 39 year old Jamaican born talent has a message in her music. No matter whether Tanya is singing reggae or dance hall her voice and lyrics are amazing. Tanya Stephens has been around since the late 1990s. She has had several hit songs throughout her career. Some of my favorite songs of Tanya’s are "Yuh Nuh Ready Fi Dis Yet", "Draw fi Mi Finger", "Freaky Type", and "Cry and Bawl", "These Streets", "Rosa", “Turn The Other Cheek”, “Little White Lie”, “Way Back “ and "It's a Pity". Tanya Stephens is so underrated she needs to be played more. Her music has so much meaning. It is so refreshing that she sings about true life situations. I know I can relate to what she is singing about. To listen to songs from this talented singer songwriter tune into Streetwise Radio. Also listen to Streetwise Radio on iTunes, Live365, Athena365, MyGen365 and Pandora.
