Lance D Thompson Jr. also known as Poetic Justice is a multifaceted creative, author, and artist whose artistry and creative craft are deeply rooted in pain and loss. After the passing of his ex-wife and a terrible break up he turned to writing as the vehicle by which to articulate and express himself. He initially began by writing poetry and books as well as self-help guides. His artistry evolved into music and ushered in the next chapter in his life – and Poetic Justice uses the gift of intricate wordplay in a fusion of spoken word, music, and Floetry that he coins “Spoken Floetry”. As an author, he also has 5 books in his repertoire namely “The Art of the Break- Up”, “Literatures of Love”, “Trapped in the Devil’s Playground”, “Erotic Expressions” and “Engagement Gone Wild”.
Poetic Justice has 7 projects in his discography with 5 Albums and 2 singles entitled: Genesis (2021), “Stinky Panther” (2021), Therapy II (2020), A Better Man (2019), Therapy (2018), “Stink Panther” (2016), Pleasure vs Pain (2016) Erotic Expressions (2015).
Every now and again the realm of artistry gives birth to an enigma that changes the way in which we think about music. Dr. Cherise Joy Thompson who goes by the moniker – Joy Storm – is a multi-talented singer and songwriter, who took a leap of faith in starting her career by leaving a cozy executive job in Project Management after 15 years to pursue her dreams. As a leader of a new wave of contemporary artists, Joy Storm is setting the bar by constantly pushing the envelope and changing the status quo of the industry by combining nostalgic elements of yesteryear into a re-imagined conscious and thoughtful musical experience. Whether she’s performing solo, or with her band – The Rock & Soul Band – the audience is entranced by her magnetic stage presence, daring attitude and electric performance. Her smooth vocals are a modern-day mix that crescendos with spellbinding emotive undertones and soulful R&B style melodies. While focused on her artistry, Joy also teaches composition and literature classes at the tertiary level and has plans to open a school for the performing arts.
