We introduced you to him last year when he graciously  performed at Halcyon House.  Pop artist and musical revolutionary, piano iconoclast ELEW has been rocking the world with his thunderous style of piano playing, inspired by ragtime, rock and pop that he calls Rockjazz.

He's performed with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Elvin Jones, Roy Hargrove, and Cassandra Wilson, among others. In 1999 he won the Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition. "With his hypnotic alchemical stew of disparate musical styles and artistic influences, ELEW’s sophomore release blends multiple piano inspirations to form a startlingly original album that is cohesive as it is eclectic."

Dreams Can Come True in 3 Seconds

September 18, 2012

“I began this adventure to create music that will make you cry, smile, dance in the kitchen and think about life a little differently,” says Georgetowner Kim Cameron.

It’s been a whirlwind since this former journalist, TV and radio news writer left a successful 20-year corporate career to start writing songs, and form her own production company, Side FX.

Four CDs in four years, one National Anthem performance for 68,000 Redskins fans, three songs picked by American Airlines, a 21 state tour, 2.6 million YouTube viewers, the only Indie artist to chart five songs on a single album, and 1.1 million hits for one song, "3 Seconds."

Since returning to her childhood love of music, this southern California blonde beauty has been playing to sell-out crowds from Georgetown (Blues Alley) to Los Angeles, and this November in St. Barths.

And singing at military bases and veterans’ hospitals is a natural for a clarinet-playing little girl who marched in a band, performed in school musicals, sang in the choir, and was a back-up singer for a cover band.

With a voice that’s clear and strong and smooth but tough to label (40% pop, 30% rock, 20% jazz and a little bit country), her lyrics are 100% Kim Cameron. And oh yes, the lady can dance.

"Based on all of the hard work and extreme effort that went into founding this company, I knew we would be successful," said Jim Bell, founder and managing partner. "What I didn't know is that we would end up being the first and only real estate firm in the D.C. area to reach 100 sales in six months. I could not be more proud of our agents."

To celebrate the occasion, Beasley hosted an exclusive reception at the Penthouses at 2501 Pennsylvania Avenue , a European-style building with 16 luxury residences only a few blocks from Georgetown.

Shown for the first time Thursday evening, two spectacular Beasley penthouse offerings: a large single level apartment with an 800-square foot terrace with an amazing skyline view of downtown Washington, and a stunning light-filled duplex apartment with circular staircase. Two other residences in the building are also for sale.

During the party, the winner of the Beasley Summer Rolex Challenge was announced.  Winning agent, Sheila Mooney was presented with a new Rolex watch for being the first agent to sell $5 million.

As Bell said, "We have a strong foundation at Beasley. Our mission of 'clients' first, brand second', is resonating not only with our clients, but agents too."
