Born Latesha Nicole Fields ("Tish-Baby") is known professionally as "Eturnul," a name representative of her everlasting talent. She is a native of San Diego, California, although she resided for a few years in Long Beach and Orange County, California. Eturnul is a songwriter and stage performer whose love for music is unlimited. Jazz, blues and mellow R&B are among her favorites, but her passion is making her own music in the form of rap. At the early age of 9, Eturnul willingly gave up television and dedicated herself to the many different sounds of music. Through this musical journey, she has expanded her talent and developed a hunger to learn and be part of the music industry.
Writing and entertaining are Eturnul''s first loves. She has her own unique style of rap and exhibits great flexibility. Writing lyrics is a natural high for Eturnul. When writing, she closes her eyes and opens her heart to her own real life experiences and the world around her, and the lyrics naturally flow.
Eturnul is also known for her ability to freestyle. Her oldest son, Eric (known as "Evalasting"), now a young teenager, has been performing with her since the age of 5. Although each is a solo artist, together they are the dynamic Mother-Son team known as "eight05south."
Eturnul''s dream is to give back to her Southeast San Diego community, making it a better environment for the youth who live there. Look for her solo project to be released this year titled "805 South Fury."
Born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Jack grew up listening to R&B and gospel. He moved to San Diego, California at age 9. Jack started playing the bass guitar at age 10 and keyboards at age 18, but his greatest strength lies in his singing and songwriting. At age 21, Jack formed the band "CLUE" and, from there released a solo project featuring the song "Shari," which was a smash on the local club scene in the 1980''s.
In 1988, Jack signed with Splt Image, an independent label based in Los Angeles, where he worked with DJ Quik, AMG and other rap and R&B artists. Prior to his album being completed, Jack met Tonex, then age 14, who became like a little brother to him. Tonex''s parents invited Jack to church, and the rest is history. Jack gave his life to the Lord in 1988. He chose preaching and teaching God''s word over music, and in 1994, Jack was ordained as a minister and became assistant pastor at Full Gospel Apostolic under Bishop John Jackson.
In 1995, Jack moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and attended God''s House under Bishop Michael Shelby. It was at God''s House that music starting returning to Jack''s life. He began leading songs for the choir and also met Ernest Lee of Ernest Lee and the Disciples of David. Although they worked on a couple of songs, Jack elected not to pursue music outside his community since he did not feel led by the Spirit to move.
From 1999 to 2002, due to trials and tribulations, Jack turned away from God. Through God''s grace, however, and the prayers of others, Jack has a brand new beginning. God has anointed and given him His blessing to share with the world his personal testimony. He now endeavors to encourage and strengthen others who may be going through their own personal trials and tribulations so they, too, can know that God can and will Hold You Up.
Look for Jack Quest''s CD "Brand New Beginning" to be released soon!
