FEBRUARY 1
Ramale Archibald

a professional bassist, songwriter and entrepreneur. Born in Kingston Jamaica and raised in South Florida. “King Male” not only plays with several groups here in West Palm Beach, but he also tours the world with some of today’s hottest International Artists.   

As a child Ramale’s talent exploded as a drummer, which led him to discover a love for bass at age 13. As time progressed, he developed a unique approach to making the bass guitar feel and sound amazing no matter what genre he is playing. This special skill allowed him opportunities to work with bands and rewarding music settings that grew his reputation of being one of the most skilled and professional freelance musicians in South Florida. Years later Ramale obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Music Business from Full Sail University. 

In his words, “Passion and Purpose Meets When Creating Art, Impacting People and Sharing Wisdom Obtained through Music On and Off The Stage.”

Harold Caudio

Haitian-American mixed-media artist whose portraits, installations, and fashion explore the intersection between pop art, cultural fluidity, and the legacy of injustice.  The multidisciplinary artist, a native of South Florida, gained national prominence for his “Colored Collextion” series — portrait paintings that are layered and epoxy-coated entirely out of Skittles candy. It honors people such as Trayvon Martin and highlights impactful public figures, from Bob Marley, Chadwick Boseman to Michelle Obama, and Beyoncé. Caudio’s metaphorical work has been featured at major exhibitions and networks, such as Art Basel Miami and Good Morning America.
