More about your hosts


Jess Magic is a “heARTist”, a soul-stirring songstress, a ceremonialist and a muse for today’s generation of visionaries and change-makers  


More than a singer, Jess Magic is a musical story-teller who creates compelling invitations for people to interact with life from an open heart.  In a world where so many are longing for deeper levels of connection, authentic expression and intimacy, Jess uses her humor, music, movement practices and story-telling to effectively weave a "spell" of love and connection that reveals relatable aspects of the human experience that penetrate, and crack open the hearts of those who are touched by her presence.


As an emcee (a.k.a. "Mistress of Ceremony"), speaker and social entrepreneur, Jess Magic uses her voice as a vehicle to shift predominant attitudes, feelings and behaviors from “consumer” to “creator” by breaking down the barrier between the artist and the audience and creating effortless access points for people to be raw, real, and to rise into their truest forms of authentic expression.


She has supported thousands of men and women from all walks of life in overcoming the shame, fear, and self-judgment that have inhibited their ability to discover, experience and express their feelings, their creative expression and their capacity to create intimacy with themselves and others, and is thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the Tribalize community.


Her signature saying is “We don’t sing to be good. We sing to be free."

Elijah Ray has become A PRODIGIOUS VOCALIST, COMPOSER, MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST, AND RECORDING ARTIST since stepping into his professional music career over 15 years ago.  Elijah is known for his pioneering heart and transformational music that crosses an insanely wide variety of genres...from Acoustic Soul, Bumpin' Funk, World Beat, Dance / Pop and Rock... to soul stirring Piano Ballads, Symphonic Soundtracks, and Shamanic, Sound Healing environments.


His shining presence, gritty soul, and message of love invite the listener into an experience of what it is to be "in the BAND OF LIGHT', and live a life as an embodied, awakening human. His spiritual messages of authenticity and the power of community have transformed audiences internationally, and many are calling his music the "soundtrack of the awakening." Both mystical and raw, Elijah’s charisma and musical prowess draws his audience into life’s nectar--spiritual, sexy, sweaty, gritty, and ecstatic. Elijah has single handedly crafted a full band sound on most of his "Band of Light" albums, playing most of the instruments and arranging many of the tracks himself. He is also keen to the art of solo touring--a troubadour with his guitar, and a diverse vocal repertoire which can on the spot create percussion sounds, horn sections, and basslines, all with his voice and a loop pedal.

Elijah Ray has played, collaborated and shared the stage with countless artists and amazing friends and musicians, like Bibi McGill (Beyonce's Lead Guitarist), Jesse Carmichael (Maroon 5), Graham Nash, Andre Manga (Paul Simon), Ben Stiller, Donovon Frankenreiter, G Love, Brett Dennon, Bushwalla, the Luminaries, Tina Malia, Youssouphe Sidibe, Tubby Love, Jay ‘Bird” Koder, Michael Ruff, and many more.

Elijah has been featured in documentaries such as Indigo Evolution, and Living in Light, alongside such luminaries as Neale Donald Walsh, Dr. Matsuro Emoto, Doreen Virtue, Gangaji, Eli Jaxson-Bear and Panache Desai. He has cultivated an international online community, www.bandoflight.ning, and plans to continue touring, releasing new music and media content, broadcasting live shows, offering sound light sessions, as well as crafting workshops, sound-coaching programs, and community building projects to assist the New Earth to Rise with ease.

We look forward to seeing you in paradise,

please contact us if you have any more questions.
