1st COUSIN – A Pop/R&B/Hip-Hop, self-contained, songwriting family group is the newest millennial talent
from the Dayton, Ohio area, “The Funk Music Capital of the World” and the home of “The Funk Music
Hall of Fame and Exhibition Center”.The same home to the Ohio Players, Heatwave, Slave, Faze-O, Dayton,
Sun, John Legend, Lakeside, Dave Chapelle, Platypus, Roger Troutman, and Zapp. There are certain city and
state areas (i.e., Detroit, Memphis, Philadelphia, Minneapolis) along with certain talented family acts (i.e., The
Band Perry, Jackson 5, Alabama, the Jonas Brother, Bee Gees, The Kings of Leon) that seem to have a longstanding
successful relationship with the music industry business.
1st COUSIN – Are all really first cousins! Jelani Stokes (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Nouri Stokes (Vocals) and Jamal
Stokes (Keyboards, Vocals) 28-32 years old, coming from a musical family. An uncle, Otis Stokes, is an
original member and still performs with The Original Lakeside. A dad/uncle, Arthur “Hakim” Stokes was an
original member with Platypus and also wrote songs for the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson. Also, there is an
aunt/mom, Doris Stokes Knight, who is a Christian/Gospel vocalist.
1st COUSIN – Is a methodical Studio/Recording act (e.g., Spice Girls, The Monkees, Shalamar, One
Direction, En Vogue, Steely Dan, Backstreet, N’Sync) that looks forward to touring and performing “live” their
own Pop/R&B/Hip-Hop commercial and creative music. They all enjoy moonlighting with different bands to
keep their “chops” on point! Currently, Jelani is a school music teacher, Nouri is a bank financial fraud
specialist, and Jamal is a graduate of Georgia State University with a Master’s in music education.
1st COUSIN – Members all have a very diverse appreciation of music and musical likes and influences. Jamie
Foxx, Robin Thicke, Boys to Men, John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Sam Smith, Maxwell, Tyrese, The
Eagles, Luther Vandross, Nick Jonas, Michael Jackson, Doobie Brothers, Take 6, Jagged Edge and Mint
Condition to name a few.
1st COUSIN – Produced by Jelani for TAJE Music, is another modern-day family act looking to join the ranks
of fresh millennial talent, making their imprint and giving birth to a special likable energy in the music and
entertainment industry! “Different Stokes for Different Folks”, the 3 first cousins are a good choice and are
looking forward to the ride and journey!
