Alec Mapa
Alec Mapa
Ellen Degeneres has called him “smart, hilarious and funny.” Variety has said, “Alec Mapa is a freak. No one should be this talented.” With uproarious live performances and groundbreaking television roles, actor and comedian Alec Mapa has entertained audiences worldwide in every imaginable medium.

Currently that medium is television. Alec’s latest comedy special Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy premieres on Showtime June 12, 2015. Based on his award-winning solo show, Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy hilariously, irreverently chronicles Alec’s journey to fatherhood via foster adoption. TV audiences currently enjoy Alec in his recurring roles on ABC Family’s Switched At Birth and Lifetime’s Devious Maids.

Audiences first discovered Alec on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning production of M. Butterfly. He guest starred on over 40 television series, including Alias, Friends, Roseanne, Seinfeld, and NYPD Blue. Alec played network television’s very first gay Asian series regular role on the CBS sitcom Some Of My Best Friends. He then starred in four seasons of the UPN sitcom Half & Half. Alec went on to appear in the ABC hit Ugly Betty and was a frequent guest star on Desperate Housewives. Film audiences howled at Alec as “N’Cream” in the wildly popular drag queen musical Connie and Carla. Other films include Playing By Heart, Marley & Me, and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.

An accomplished stand-up comedian, Alec’s Wisecrack comedy special premiered on LOGO in 2005 and has since become a cult favorite. His follow-up comedy specials America’s Gaysian Sweetheart and No Fats, Femmes or Asians aired on the Here! And LOGO networks respectively.

Alec was awarded the prestigious Davidson Valentini GLAAD Award for promoting equal rights for the LGBT community. A tireless fundraiser, Alec has toured the country on behalf of The Human Rights Campaign and The Matthew Shepard Foundation earning him the unofficial title of “America’s Gaysian Sweetheart.”

Alec lives in Los Angeles with his husband Jamie and his son Zion.
Doe Paoro
Doe Paoro
"The best of what humans and machines can bring out in each other" is how NPR Music described Doe Paoro's single "The Wind," a meditation on urban isolation in the face of Hurricane Sandy. The song, which was produced by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon with beats by Chicago duo Supreme Cuts, sets the tone for release of Paoro's Anti- debut album, After, available now.

The album's first single is the intoxicatingly downtempo, R&B-influenced "Growth/Decay," which Paoro co-wrote with Sterling Fox (who has previously worked with Lana Del Rey, among others). The groove-laced, gospel-inspired track ruminates on the notion that change fuels all life, with the chorus putting out the call to "cycle to the light or fade away."
For After, Paoro worked with producers Sean Carey (drummer / supporting vocalist for Bon Iver) and BJ Burton (The Tallest Man on Earth, Sylvan Esso, and others) to even further deepen her musical repertoire, creating a mesmerizing hybrid of R&B, synthpop, and indie-leaning electro rooted in an earthy minimalism, drawing from influences ranging from Carole King to Portishead, Aretha Franklin and beyond. The album was recorded at April Base, a Wisconsin ranch house that Vernon had converted into a studio. "I'm used to just working with a piano," says Paoro, "but with this album, we built an entire world with the sonics alone."
