Lady Harris of JCI Legacy: The Multi-Talented Trailblazer in the Literary Arts and Film World! | DJ BME Cosign

Lady Harris of JCI Legacy

Let's be real: Sharea Harris, aka Lady Harris, isn't just another name in the arts—she’s the powerhouse you didn't know you needed to pay attention to. This Buffalo, NY native had the audacity to pack her bags and set off for Charlotte, NC, at 23, all to supercharge her artistic talents. And boy, did she DELIVER!

Her theatrical debut was nothing short of a spectacle with "Confrontation" in 2004, followed by the audience-gripping "Games" in 2012. If you're in the Charlotte Metro area and haven’t caught wind of her influence, are you even paying attention?  Because from the moment she stepped foot in the Carolinas she's been at the heart of the Carolinas literary, arts and theatrical scene and continues to be one of the backbones of the creative community in the Carolinas!  Lady Harris ran the live comedy series "Skitz," along with hosting poetry slams and MC Battles that had the city of Charlotte buzzing!

Lady Harris isn't just about the stage; she's also a literary dynamo with six novels under her belt as well as a highly praised children's book, "Amina & The Princess Crown." And in case you think she's all fluff, her book "Betrayal 2" hit #25 on Amazon's Top 100 list for Mysteries and Thrillers!  Lady Harris has put her stamp in each book genre and continues to grow as an author.  A true mistress of words.

In 2017, she decided that shaking up the arts scene wasn't enough. Enter JCI Legacy, her brainchild aimed at giving low-income children access to dance and arts programs. We're talking Ballet, Hip Hop, Majorette, Canvas art, and reggae—programs where her students shine at major events in Charlotte and Columbia, SC.

Just when you thought she couldn’t get any busier, Lady Harris dives into filmmaking. Her upcoming film "Office Secrets" is already generating serious buzz, set to stream on multiple platforms such as TUBI and PRIME.  It's another testament to her incredible storytelling prowess and her ability to captivate audiences across different mediums.

Lady Harris isn’t just a creative force; she's a hustler who gets what she wants through sheer determination and relentless effort. Her career is a masterclass in turning vision into reality, making her a beacon of inspiration in the artistic community. So, if you’re not already following her journey, it’s high time you did.

About MZ.TML

Mz.TML is originally from the Boston Ma area, she now resides in Worcester Ma. She is known in the New England Area for NightLife entertainment and promotions for over the past ten years, she also has worked in the theater and Music business since she was a young girl in the Boston Area. She has strong ties to many people in the New England region. She decided in 2014 along with her Upnorth Family to join forces and start a record label that would cater and develop and polish artists in the New England Area. She has worked with many artists in the industry and has helped to develop many nightlife events. She is well respected in her skills and ability to grasp concepts and make them come to life. She is a leader and a team player at all costs. She is always willing to help and be a resource for her peers. WORCESTER – As a city at the almost literal center of Massachusetts, Worcester became an entertainment center in the late 1800’s as touring shows, bands and orchestras would travel from Boston to Springfield or vice versa with a stopover in Worcester. The 1920’s saw the rise of a bustling music and jazz scene in the city, exporting such famous people as pianist/composer Cole Porter, jazz drummer Frank Capp, and pianist/composer Jaki Bayrd. As the manufacturing industry attracted African Americans from the south, Worcester became a stopping point for blues, soul and R&B performers touring the northern leg of the Chitlin Circuit. The opening of the Worcester Centrum in the 1980’s made Worcester a stopping point for major concerts and tours, as promoters found the city more welcoming than arenas in Boston. Being in reachable proximity from Boston, Providence and Springfield, the venue steadily drew audiences from all three areas. With Worcester as a home to several live music venues of various sizes, and a homegrown audience of multi-genre music enthusiasts, it is of little surprise that Worcester has a growing reputation as a “Showcase” city, where music industry executives and concert promoters frequently come to scope out new talent. TM Lewis, Event Planner and A&R Consultant TM Lewis explains how she got her start as an A&R Consultant. “After a few years of promoting shows and events in Worcester, I came to know a lot of the folks from the industry,” explains TM Lewis, “I would sometimes give them leads on up-and-coming talent in the area and pretty soon I developed a reputation for having a good ear for talent.” Pretty soon, labels began contracting me to scope out a lead or a show that came to town.” This brought her to the attention of the UMG distributed hip-hop label, Up North Records, where Ms. Lewis became an A&R Director and eventually the Booking Agent for the label’s roster of artists. TM Lewis & Associates are proud to be based in Worcester, where they are helping to re-invigorate the soul music scene in the city, catering to the grown & sexy crowd. Ms. Lewis is particularly interested in creating a platform for New England based artists and companies to reach the larger regional and national markets. With a growing number of independent artists and record labels looking to expand their markets and looking to Worcester and a location to develop their sound and establish a fanbase; for the music industry and music fans alike, TM Lewis & Associates is the company to watch. TM Lewis & Associate CEO Wins Award from Women in Action, Inc TM Lewis, WIA Honoree and Award Recipient TM Lewis to be honored at the 6th Annual Small Business & Entrepreneurs Award Ceremony in Worcester. Women In Action, Inc. will be hosting its 6th Annual Small Business & Entrepreneurs Award Ceremony on January 20th, 2018, at the Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Square, Worcester, MA. The ceremony begins at 11am. The Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs Award Ceremony honors outstanding entrepreneurs in Massachusetts that show dedication, growth, and positive contribution to their communities. Among the honorees will be Ms Tarjiarkee M Lewis, CEO of TM Lewis & Associates, an entertainment consulting agency based in Worcester. An 18-year veteran of the music industry, whose clients include UpNorth Records, Liberation Multimedia, and Down Streeters as well as a host of independent recording and performing artists, Ms. Lewis has established an impressive portfolio in the entertainment industry.

With having a well-known entertainment company, both being producers, the founder’s talents and existing foundation availed them the opportunity to create another platform in a “cut-throat” industry. This online video podcast show was created to provide artist with a tool to showcase their music through different channels such as networking, promotion, marketing, music video stream, and live interaction with a wider scale of audiences to expand their fan bases.

We are the home of the independent grinders, if you have a vision and passion we help spread it and bring awareness to your brands.
