Our Artists

Josh Bramos

josh 2As a worship leader in South Florida and a husband with two children, Josh has a heart that longs to help the church learn how to worship our Lord through Scripture. Teaching scripture through song has become his way of leading the body of Christ into worship.

Josh’s newest release “The Well” is filled with God’s word throughout each song. By Grace is the invitation from an unbiased God welcoming everyone to his nearness. “You Hold The Victory” is from Psalms. It is the chant of a follower who Run’s after God with a banner of victory over him. “The Well” is the title track as well as the joyous song that proves God’s well overflows and welcomes all to drink and be satisfied.
After Releasing The Well in 2013, Local churches in South Florida took a liking to the Organic Folk sounding Record and have begun playing this worship songs in their churches.




The American Poets

the-american-poetsThe American Poets are “Modern Americana” singer/songwriter duo Jeff & Christine Maldonado. During their first several years together, Jeff & Christine performed extensively in South Florida, as well as various regions throughout the U.S. to promote their first album of acoustic/folk songs under their former name “The Providence”. They quickly developed a large following of dedicated fans and were widely respected and regarded as a vital force on South Florida’s music scene. It was during this time that they drew the attention of various local radio stations and t.v. programs, and were invited to perform on several live broadcasts. Soon after, they were chosen to perform on a nationally televised talent program, and subsequently had their songs featured in several independent films.
Through all the buzz that was being generated, they landed a much sought after opportunity to perform at the prestigious “Bluebird Cafe” in Nashville, and also at “B.B. King’s Blues Club” in Memphis.
When the time came to record their second album, Jeff & Christine wanted to expand their sonic horizons, and create a more diverse, dynamic and powerful sound. Therefore, they decided to recruit the help of Orlando Machado, who is a well known and highly acclaimed drummer in South Florida, in order to achieve their new sound. Together, along with the help of various other talented local musicians, Jeff & Christine recorded their second CD of all original music under their new name, “The American Poets”. The American Poets perform as an acoustic duo, showcasing some of their most loved songs, as well as unique versions of some of yesterday’s & today’s most popular hits, and also perform as a full band.
The American Poets CD entitled “Light Of Life”, is available on iTunes, Rhapsody, & CDBaby.com.

Maria Gracia

maria-graciaFrom a young age, I discovered I had a passion for music and that I could express myself through it and say many truths, so I was in every corner of my house for a long time humming songs. At 9 years old, I wrote my first song called: “I will praise” recorded 4 years later.

I had a beautiful opportunity to join a ministry called “MT28” which allowed me to grow my musical and spiritual areas. With this, I could travel to different places in my country seeing the great need that existed in the hearts of people to worship through singing.

In my 18 years, I have had the privilege of sharing the stage with Psalmists and ministries such as: Marcos Witt, Alex Campos, Luis Campos, Red, Contagius.

Currently I serve in my church as director of Praise, I confess that is one of the things that captivates my heart.

“I firmly believe that we must turn off the noise of the world to hear what’s on the bottom of each being and understand that worship is the best way to say thank you”

 Grinchy Got Saved “The Musical”

grinchy rollerbladingGrinchy Got Saved is an original musical parody.  We all remember how the green guy stole Christmas, but what happened the night Grinchy Got Saved?
Join Only One Roadway and Standing Ovation Theatre, as the Gospel is presented through an excerpt of this parody play.  A green rollerblading furry creature entertains the audience, while the true meaning of Christmas is presented.

Jesse Jones Jr.

jesse-jonesJazz is alive in South Florida and Jesse Jones Jr. is here to prove it. The Miami native is a saxophonist extraordinaire and continues to be on the forefront of a burgeoning jazz renaissance in South Florida.  Jesse Jones Jr. is one of those hidden treasures that you can’t help but to share with the world. A phenomenal reed player, Jesse is technically superior on the alto, soprano and baritone saxophone, as well as flute. He combines the hard-bop influence of Cannonball Adderley, the funk of Hank Crawford, and the sweetness of Paul Desmond. Their influences may be detected within Jesse’s riffs. Add to that some of the most unusual “scat” jazz singing when Jesse sings “straight” or through his horns, and the jazz audiences go wild. The humor is international in scope since these are not words but rather sounds that move and groove with the music. His ability to captivate the audience with the classics, and adapt them to his own swinging interpretations, is legendary. “I can only thank God for His blessings. And with the love and encouragement of my wife Thelma, family, friends and incredible fans, my heart will continue to pour out the music that we love so well.
Love, Peace and Jazz

The Village Hymns

villageHymnsA while back we had this vision of a collective group of worshipers seeking to honor God through the talents of songwriting. Many songs have been written and many lyrics have been sung, but have we sought after the local church?  “Amazing Grace” transcends generations and many songs written today are perfect for the body of Christ as a whole, but there is a deeper need for songs that minister to the local church. By this we mean churches everywhere are going through different seasons and with each season God can be glorified and exalted with scripture sung pertaining to the life of the church.

God has poured out talents on us and our response should be to offer them back to Him. Songwriting is one talent that The Village Hymns wants to bring out to glorify Him.

We want local artists, worship leaders, and musicians that write songs for the church. We want to gather artists and their songs for a night called “The Village Hymns.” There  is a three-fold purpose for the evening. The first  is to bring awareness to local songwriters; writers that are aware of how God is moving in His church. The second purpose is to bring awareness to songs written for the local church to sing. How amazing it would be for South Florida to be filled with churches writing and singing their own songs, not forsaking those which are already out there, of course. The third purpose would be to gather local writers and develop a community which would hopefully birth new songs and new relationships among different churches.
