Isaac Monts, is a drummer, producer, and teacher, born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut. While growing up, Isaac was heavily influenced by popular Gospel, R&B, and Funk music, with influences coming from artists including Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Earth Wind and Fire, and Anita Baker. 

Isaac is currently the Percussion instructor for the Bushnell’s Noah Webster Jazzicians Program, and works both live and in the studio with artists including Ace Livingston, David Davis, Klokwize, Lawrence V. White, and Brittney Crush. Isaac also serves as the Music Director at Liberty Christian Center International in Hartford, Connecticut, and continues his pursuits to inspire and impact others through his music.

Wayne Brown has collaborated with a wide and diverse array of artists as both a writer and producer including Billy Ocean, Ruby Turner, Earth Wind and Fire, Junior Giscombe, Stevie Winwood, Jonathan Butler, George Michael, Janet Kay, Lulu, Yazz and many more, and played with jazz greats such as Coleman Hawkins and Tal Farlow.

Wayne studied Jazz at the prestigious Leeds College of Music. After his time at the College he delved into the mainstream music world and went on to sell several million records as a writer and producer with his international top 5 hits “Heartache” and “Goodbye Stranger”.

The first album “The Jazz Club Volume 1” received international critical acclaim with great support from radio opening doors to performances throughout Europe and the USA.

Back in 2010 Wayne was appointed Artistic Director and Chairman of the jury for the Bucharest International Jazz competition which enabled him to meet a wealth of talented young musicians from around the globe.

“Wayne Brown brings a wonderful essence of cohesive grooves that make you rock in your chair coupled with a funky rhythmic interplay with a solid foundation that keeps you hooked.  “Goodbye Stranger” is a true testament that strong friendships can lift you higher than you can imagine, especially when music is shared and messages are embroidered throughout” says Jaijai Jackson of The Jazz Network Worldwide.
