PhemPhat has produced the successful all-female talent showcase called “Honey Jam” featuring artists from across the country representing pop, rock, hip hop, opera, country, jazz, gospel, reggae, blues, r&b, dance music, etc.. The Honey Jams are stellar showcases of homegrown talent. Hundreds of artists have played to hyped and capacity crowds including Nelly Furtado, Jully Black, Reema Major, Anjulie, Kellylee Evans, Graph Nobel, Toya Alexis, Natasha Waterman, Melanie Durrant and many more.
Vocal and performance coaching and workshops about the business of music including songwriting, publishing, management, funding, media training, entertainment law and much more are also offered to the artists who take part.
PhemPhat believes in giving back to the community and has made donations from past Honey Jams to Big Sisters of Toronto, Each One, Teach One’s Sista 2 Sista mentoring group, the Immigrant Women’s Job Placement Centre, At the Crossroads Women’s Art Journal, the Coalition for AIDS Prevention, Breast Cancer Research, Sistering, and Voices of Positive Women. In 2005 we started working mainly to promote and donate to YWCA Toronto’s programmes for women and girls.
