He has shared platforms with former President Bill Clinton, worked alongside Jamie Fox to aid hurricane Katrina victims, performed at the Nickelodeon complex in Los Angeles, CA, reached audiences all over the world with his music, Dr. Cornel West called him a “concentrated genius”, but his mother still calls him Yaves.
A native of Columbus, OH; Yaves Ellis has been using the gift of music to educate and entertain audiences all over the country for the past 15 years. Starting at the age of 7, and obtaining his first national recording contract at the age of 12, Yaves was a minor in a major league business. But the chemistry of hard work, humility and talent is a combination that creates results, and the outcome was astonishing.
Yaves is also the youngest person to ever hold the title of Public Affairs Director in the 70+ station Radio One conglomerate. And in between ministerial and corporate endeavors he finds time connect with some of his fellow Ohio State U Alumni business partners to run their high-end urban street fashion boutique, Soleclassics.
A graduate from The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business, Yaves runs one of the most successful Indie entertainment labels, Sling Shot Media Group LLC, and is currently working on his Masters in Theology. As the most recent artist signed to Xist Music, Yaves will join the company of fellow label mates Jahaziel, The Ambassador, Da’ T.R.U.T.H., Andalé and Xist label president and vocalist, Sean Simmonds. “I love his energy and work ethic,” says T. Black, CEO of Xist Music. “His creative ways to present the gospel adds another facet to the Xist family and contributes to the longevity of our brand.”
At the end of the day I’ve always wanted to be in a place that would allow me to be myself with no apologies. God knew exactly what He was doing when He orchestrated my situation. It’s history in progress from here.”
