EJ the DJ and Jayde Akers at Tony The Tailor
We will have EJ the DJ spinning the wheel of steel outside and Jayde Akers inside with her artwork during May’s ArtWalk.
EJ The DJ of Bravo Live DJ has been living and DJing in the Charleston region since 2012 specializing in Weddings, Coorperate Events and parties that want to enhance the atmosphere through skilled music mixing entertainment.
Jayde Akers, a self-taught artist, was born and raised in Long Island New York. Her parents noticed her inclination towards art, specifically drawing, at a young age. She has drawn ever since she was a little girl and picked up painting about 7 years ago. At the age of 15, Jayde was sponsored to take art classes under Chad Andrews in Williamsport, Pennsylvania for one year. It was there that she honed her skill of pencil sketching. Though drawing is where she started, she has fallen in love with painting because of its appearance of complexity yet its secret simplicity of bringing shapes together to create something beautiful. Jayde Akers now resides with her husband Caleb in South Charleston, WV where she creates her artwork in a studio called Home.
