ABOUT THE ARTISTS
TivaTiva is set to levitate toward the stratosphere. Cello-wielding front man Daniel de Jesús captivates
with his powerful, soaring vocals and steals the hearts of all mortals in his presence.

Born in the heart of Los Angeles, CA, Irene Diaz has emerged as an independent singer/songwriter
who has stolen hearts from the first note. Her initial exposure to music came at a young age, at only 15 years
old, and since then has developed an riveting, engaging musical style and her hearty vocal delivery that sets
her apart from many of her contemporaries. Her influences come from other esteemed performers and
singers such as Billie Holiday, Fiona Apple, and Nina Simone, but cites love as her greatest influence behind
her songwriting.

August 4th Friday: Make Something

This past Friday at CRED OnSite we held our second 4th Friday Arts on South event. People who came in contributed to collaborative collage and drawing pieces and participated in CRED artist Nate Harris’s printmaking demo. Local Philly DJ Rtodaizza provided the music, resulting in several people busting some moves on the dance floor. Check out the pictures below!
