THE HYBRID QUEEN
I am Nakia Y. Quarles, CWP ~ the Executive A&R for Metal 2 Music Records/SMG and Metal 2 Music Entertainment Management, Certified Wedding & Events Planner and Owner of ~N~ Motion Events and Shoez~N~Motion.
I started with Metal 2 Music as the East Coast Affiliate Event & Entertainment Management Liaison, combining my skills and knowledge from my event planning business and my extensive knowledge in the hotel/tourism industry with entertainment management. Soon after, I began to Talent Scout for the label, seeking artists for airplay, interviews, and roster consideration. Under the very structured guiding and mentorship of Metal 2 Music Executive, Franz "Sincere" Ates, I advanced into a Music Business Consultant, an Artist Development Representative, Artist Management, and the current position as Executive A&R. I am also the chief promoter for the label, handle all social media marketing and advertising, and serve as the Program Director for AllThingzFranz.com Radio.
Every Sunday and Wednesday, at 6:30pmEST, I conduct live interviews with guests, as a host or co-host on Independent Everything, our globally produced blog talk radio show. I am in charge of acquiring artists and entrepreneurs for live interviews. Responsible also for the overseeing of all communications between artists and Metal 2 Music Records to ensure airtime runs smoothly. The creating of the episodes for the show and running of the dashboard is done by me also.
Every Thursday, you can listen to me live from 8-11pmEST, on the globally aired Franzaliscious Music Video n More Show, on AllThingzFranz.com Radio, as I host with my Nerve DJ Franz The Hybrid One.
And every Saturday you can tune in to The Artists Loft on the Blog Talk Radio network as I co-host "Sexy Saturdays," Real Talk About Acting Out Your Fantasies With Your Mate. (7:00pmEST)
What started as a little fun with my love for singing, has turned in to six diverse tracks, five released on the "Confirmed" album by Franz The Hybrid One (released 01/15/15). Be on the lookout for my solo projects, "H.I.M" (EP) (02/14/2015) and "The Hybrid Queen" (album), to be released Summer 2015.
When I am not handling the affairs of other’s lives, both artists and clients, I am volunteering as a local Rape Crisis Victims Advocate, Suicide Prevention Awareness advocate, with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and with the Polaris Project (Human Trafficking). I reside on the East Coast, divorced mother of three wonderful young men, who range between the ages of twenty and nine and one dynamic drama queen who is fourteen.
