Karizz is a 25 year old male R&B/Soul vocalist who resides in Boston, Mass but originally hails from Hollywood, Florida (near Miami). In an industry that is over-saturated – Karizz breaks through the mode because he has a unique tone and quality to his voice that will add an element to Today’s R&B that has not been heard in a quite some time. Many have compared him to Jeffrey Osbourne, Glenn Jones, and Johnny Gill because his vocals are powerful and stage presence is uncanny. When Karizz performs he allows you to see how much he enjoys it and gives you a show that you won’t soon forget.
In 2001 Karizz partnered with ASCAP songwriter Val Johnson to form an independent record label (Manchild Entertainment) and recorded his debut single “Pretty Eyes”. The single was sent out to record pools in Boston and Miami in the 2nd week of November 2002 and it began to receive spins and positive feedback from Boston DJs immediately. The single was chosen as one of the hit picks of the week (Nov 18) by Miami rec pool – Flamingo Rec Pools. The song crossed over to Rhythmic Hit radio in Guam KZGZ Power 98FM in Guam.
Manchild Entertainment will be going for adds & spins on college radio and commercial radio in December 2002 primarly in Boston, Maine, Hartford, Miami, Guam, Hawaii, and continuing on to Atlanta, Charlotte, Norfolk, DC, Philly, Baltimore and other northeast and southeast regions. Manchild Entertainment is seeking distribution from another label to be able to distribute it regionally or nationally and expand their promotional efforts.
