Hello, my Deep Feeling Magic Beings.
.
.
Lately I’ve been depressed, lately I’ve wanted to conquer the world, lately I’ve been inspired by everything I feel, lately I’ve felt like it doesn’t matter if I’m here, lately I’ve felt that life is precious, lately I’ve felt love, lately I’ve been beating myself up.
Lately I’ve contradicted myself, but all of these are still true. Mood swings, seasonal affective disorder, empathy, excitability, passion, fire, love, music, art, the sun, the moon, all fueling how I carry myself, how I carry myself to a piano to play, how I carry myself to a pen to write, how I carry myself to my bed and dream. Maybe you can relate, maybe you feel everything too. Maybe I’m not alone. Maybe you’re not alone. .
You’re not broken, you’re just a Deep Feeling Magic Being.

Comment a 🖤 if you read all the way to the bottom.

Money, notoriety and rivieras.

In the flash bulbs of the pretty cameras,
Pretty cameras, pretty cameras.
Am I glamorous? Tell me am I glamorous?

Hello? Hello?

Your love is deadly.
Tell me life is beautiful,
They all think I have it all.
I'm nothing without you.
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you.

Summertime is nice and hot,
And my life is sweet like vanilla is.
Gold and silver line my heart
But burned into my brain are these stolen images,
Stolen images, baby, stolen images.
Can you picture it,
Babe, the life we could've lived?

Hello? Hello?

All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you.

We were two kids, just tryin' to get out,
Live on the dark side of the American dream.
We would dance all night, play our music loud,
When we grew up, nothing was what it seemed.

Although I immerse myself in words and love using them, there are so many times I’m unable to muster them to express myself. One such moment was last night at the @gangofyouths show, or I should say after. I just could not utter words, I was that blown away. Yes, it helps to see an acclaimed international band play an intimate venue in the states, but I imagine they have this effect on people regardless of room size. It’s honestly taken me 24 hours to process it. I was floored. Dumbfounded. Wholly entranced by the experience, I felt as if my brain stopped working. No bullshit. I love live music and have seen countless shows, but there are those very few that actually alter something in you and you know they’ll stay with you forever, because they’ve transcended music, and the moment - the experience, is something else entirely for you. I’ve always loved the poetic nature of this band and their way of approaching both the harsh tragedies of life and as @slayerpepe put it last night, the “punctuated moments of joy” we also get during our very limited time on this earth. Their sound is streamlined feeling and emotion, like it’s pulled directly from a vein or artery. It’s palpable. And David is an open book, constantly looking to relate and devour loneliness or sadness from anyone before him, in between songs. Seeing them is more than entertainment for your ears. It’s a communal dance around the ugly things, in an attempt to stomp them out, even if only for a two hour blip on our timeline. Life is a beautiful gift filled with not so beautiful things that compound on top of the unknown, often, via loss and grief. Things none of us are strangers to. So, why not take some time out to share in it occasionally, embrace it, together, and then move and shake our hips like careless “dickheads” to feel a bit better about it all? And maybe, along the way, we’ll even conquer a dark thing or two. If you EVER have an opportunity to see them, do it. And why are you still reading this and not listening to them right now? Go! #gangofyouths #gofartherinlightness

Short version: I’ve been having a bad 2018 but I think I’m doing better than I was months ago. I live in Northern California now.

Long version: Since the beginning of this year, I’ve had an awful go at managing my mental health. I won’t get into specifics, but suffice to say that there were plenty of times when I very genuinely didn’t think I’d see 2019. I left New Hampshire in hopes of outrunning my problems and finding a new, fulfilling place to live. Ten weeks and close to 10,000 miles later, I’ve settled into a house in Guerneville, California, about an hour north of the Bay. It was in rough shape when I moved in, having most recently been a squat house for, I’ve been told, local meth addicts, but I’ve been cleaning and fixing and it has come along quite nicely. I’ll post pictures soon, I think. So it seems that for now my travels have slowed to a stop, and I’m a bit relieved about that. Weeks ago, I very nearly died in the Wyoming desert. I came close to running out of money in Marfa, Texas. I found my car windows smashed (and precious things stolen from me) in Oakland. But I also saw many beautiful places, met many beautiful folx, and was reminded a surprising amount of the capacity for compassion in others. There were moments during the trip where I felt hopeful for the future, and confident that I’d find a way to feel okay after all. Other times I felt like I had made a mistake, that I’d never solve my problems, and would never feel at home. Today was a good one. I saw some friends, listened to music, and walked in the ocean at what was maybe the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen. I feel good right now, all things considered. My sadness has not gone away, and I have not found a long-lasting home, but I can stop moving for a couple seasons at least, and there’s a great burrito spot down the street. Feeling alright can be very hard work. For me, this year, it has been a particularly insurmountable wall. But I’m making plans for New Year’s, and I intend on watching 2019 as it rolls into me. I cannot express my gratitude for those of you who have been kind to me these 10 weeks. Thank you all. Love for friends.

wishing you the happiest 2nd birthday today!
It blows my mind that we’ve had the opportunity to spend two years growing together.
Even though most kids are calling their parents mom and dad by now... you are different. You call me “BOB” why, only you know! I know you’re fully capable of saying Mom. I’ve heard you say it! I’m starting to believe you enjoy watching me repeat MOM MAMA MOMMM. hahah.
I love watching your love for music, dancing, coloring and drawing grow everyday. I’m truly impressed with your coloring skills and how well you maintain staying in the lines and purposefully drawing circles so well.
Another thing i especially love about you is your admiration for animals. You start talking in a high pitched baby voice, tilt your head, talk to the animal/ stuffed animal, and pet it saying “nice nice.” You are a gentle and kind little soul but far from being a push over. You don’t stand for something you don’t like or believe is not fair.
i love that. Don’t ever let that change.

Love you always,
Mama
aka BOB 🙄

Through all these years I've learned so much about life and about this beautiful thing called music. I thank God every day for giving me this gift to be able to express myself without saying a word. We all know that feeling when you listen to your favourite song, but to be able to make music and everything that comes with it is another level of happiness which cannot be described. One big thank you to everyone who is part of this and who always support me, i appreciate it a lot no matter who you are, a fan, a friend, a random supporter or someone else. I love you all. ❤

All the music that I've been making lately with some amazing and big artists, is really special to me. Everything in my career went to a higher level this year thanks to my hard work and of course to all the people that I've met who helped me get better and better every day, not just as an artist but also as a person.

Let's keep growing together and spend way more years in love and happiness, because that's what music is all about! ❤🙏 Much love, - Loreno Mayer

I know it’s been a minute and quite frankly idk who still uses fan accounts or who will even see this but I guess I wanted to say something special for the 9 year anniversary of Big Time Rush. Honestly it’s kinda hard to even know where to start, but I’m glad I still have my fan account so I can say some of this to people who will understand. It’s really hard to believe it’s already been 9 years since I was in sixth grade, sitting on my couch at home, watching the first episode air. I’ll never forget that night and I hold it in such a special place in my heart. I knew every day after November 28th, 2009 that Big Time Rush was something really special to me and would always remain so. Today, as I sit in a computer lab on my college campus, I can say that all of those feelings I had were real. This band played such an important role in my life as I was growing up and little did I know, it would set a foundation for who I would grow up to become. Today, I’m studying Music Industry at the best college I could possibly imagine attending surrounded by the best, most kind, hard working people I know. Big Time Rush was the first band that genuinely got me interested in Music Industry, and I thank them so much for leading me to the perfect path for my life to follow. I am so beyond lucky to be doing what I do here every day. I have the absolute honor of managing a band called Voyeur Motel (check them out people) for our Music Industry Club’s battle of the new bands and I’ve never felt so fulfilled in my life. Thanks to the very positive role models I had in Kendall, James, Carlos, Logan, and Dustin, I was able to find the perfect fit for my life and I’m able to do what I love at an amazing school that makes it possible.
So I guess thank you from the absolute bottom of my heart to @kendallschmidt @jamesmaslow @therealcarlospena @loganhenderson @dbeltwrites and to all of the rushers who gave me such an amazing sense of community and belonging back in the day. I love you all forever and always 💕

Hellooooo 🙋🏼‍♀️ don’t think I could tilt any further if I tried 😂🤦🏼‍♀️ BUT since I feel like there are definitely some new faces around here, I decided to share 10 random facts about me on this 10th day of September. 😊 Ya know just for those of you who are like “who the heck is this girl I think she really likes food?” so here we go: 1) I was born and raised in Hattiesburg, MS. 2) I’m 21 years old but like 75 at heart... I love my early bed times and watching wheel of fortune every night 😎🤘🏼 (bonus fact I really hope to be a contestant one day) 3) I am definitely a morning bird > night owl. I LOVE a good sunrise 🌞 4) I’ve been working as a full-time model for almost 2 years now after signing with my first agency Next! I didn’t grow up with the dream of being a model or anything; It’s all just been kind of accidental and happenstance. But I believe some of the most beautiful things in life are. 😊 This is where the stars have led, and I’m not complaining ❤️ Modeling has introduced me to some of the most amazing people and places all over the world that I may have never met otherwise, so for that I am very thankful. ❤️ Right now it’s pretty much how I pay the bills and buy my groceries hahaha 5) That being said, I LOVE to cook and hope to have a little cozy cafe of my own someday. ✨ 6) I’ve fallen in love with REAL & healthy food from the earth. I geek out over roasted sweet potatoes or cutting into a perfectly green avocado hahaha eat good feel good nah mean? 🌈🥗🥑 7) I’ve been slacking a bit, but I actually made the page @healthynhappywithv not too long ago dedicated to some of my favorite healthy meals 😋 8) I’ve been living in Miami for almost 2 years now, but I’m excited to travel somewhere new soon! 🌍 9) My music taste is all OVER the place. More often than not I’m listening to 60’s/70’s rock or Red Hot Chili Peppers then 5 min later I’m rapping every single word to Chance the Rapper or J Cole. (My favs) My dad is a musician, so my love for ALL music runs deep. 😊 Although the good singing gene skipped righttt over ya girl 🤷🏼‍♀️ 10) Beginning December 5th you can catch me as briefcase 🔟 on the all new #DealorNoDeal w @howiemandel on CNBC!!🤸

You can pick your hard copy up by clicking the link in the bio.
I just want to take this time and say THANK YOU to EVERYONE who has been with me on this LONG journey into my music career.
Over the past few years people I’ve never met have change my life into something I never thought would’ve been possible.
With that being said;

This album is based off of how I’ve felt different days for a while.
There will be sad depressing songs, hype songs, story telling songs and so much more.
This album isn’t based solely off of one feel; but a little more into my life and how my feelings can change daily.
I’m still alive; but part of me feels dead inside.
But, that will never take away how much love I have for music and how much all of you mean to me.
I’ve dedicated my life to this! Just like people I’ve never met have had tremendous amount of love a support to my music.
I will never be able to thank you and you guys will never understand how much this means to me.
With that being said; I present to you the cover for my “Still Alive, Dead Inside” album.
Dropping August 15th.

We couldn’t do what we do with out you. And I want to say thank you to everyone around the world for your kind words, blessings and condolences to all of us through this tragic time. We love you all! And to all of my friends in and out of the music business thank you for reaching out to me. It means more to me then I could ever express. I don’t know what I would do without you. So Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It really has taken “the heavy metal family” to another level. This has been one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to face in my life! I’m so confused, sad and as helpless as I’ve ever been. I’m at a loss and completely devastated. But I’m trying. It’s the equivalent of an emotional riot in my head and In my heart as I write this. But I’m trying to focus on anything good. I know Vinnie would want that. And the good things are my memories of him. His smile, his infectious laugh and his personality that beamed light. Him and his brother Dimebag lived to make people smile. That’s what I’m gonna miss the most. I just want to say thank you Vinnie Paul! For saving my life, for your music, for your endless generosity, for accepting me into your life, for creating our music that touched people, for being proud to be in hellyeah and for always treating me like a brother and more importantly for treating me like a friend. So many times I’ve looked back to see you just bashing away and have to pinch myself. It was Unbelievable! And for all of those things you will live forever in my heart. And I will never let you go!!! I will always love you and go to the end of the earth to carry the torch for you and Dimes legacy.
R.I.P Vincent Paul Abbott. I know your with DIMEBAG Right now Smiling down on us. Even in all this emotional darkness, that thought alone makes me smile right back. I LOVE YOU! Your eternal friend, -Chadnesss

And like her I’ve watched my peers and those younger than me climb up the music world. But Tamar believed in her dream and she never put a cap on her potential, despite the music industry politics. She put out a body of work that represented her fully and she won. Being who she was fully. Traci had her career stall and she kept believing in her dream too. Last night I got to tell Tamar how much she continues to inspire me and she spoke love and life to me and I am grateful. love you @tamarbraxton You deserve this and more. Also Tamar and @therealtracibraxton put on an amazing show!!!! Vocals, choreography, & amazing music!!! Can’t wait til you come back for more.

Props to my favourite band for MAKING SUCH AN AMAZING SONG and music video. I love it so much. I love them so much. I know that they'll never leave me cause there music will always be with me.

-1. I truly believe that family is first and I’m so grateful for the most supportive husband and 3 girlies. They are my everything.
-2. The obvious...I love tacos. Like I should probably be embarrassed, but I’m not;) it’s part of the denial that I have a problem;)
-3. Probably the question I get asked the most on insta stories... the answer is yes I have two different colored eyes;)
-4. I am a Midwest girl and grew up in Iowa. I love that place so much. There’s just something about small towns, gravel roads and country music ❤️ It will always be home.
-5. Where I grew up we had 1 school kindergarten -12th grade. It’s still that way today and it was the best. Jase just said more people will see this post than live in my entire town😉
-6. I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but the only member in my family. I joined when I was 20. And it has been the greatest blessing in my life.
-7. I’m a gypsy at heart and love to travel. I’ve tried convincing my hubby several times to sell everything and hop in the “hog” our 1989 motorhome and let me home school the kids. Which is even funnier because the “hog” probably wouldn’t make it to the next city🤦🏼‍♀️ Good thing he’s my voice of reason;)
-8. My husband is the romantic one who loves planning surprises and remembers all the special dates...and me...well I often forget our anniversary🤔 -9. I grew up playing sports and love everything fitness and athletics. I’ve got my heart still set on a 100 mile run.
-10. I actually am a totally introvert at heart and am happiest when I’m at home with my family.
-11. Maybe the strangest thing about me is I don’t watch tv. We go to movies and have family movie night, but that’s the extent of it for me. And I pretty much haven’t seen any of the “classic” movies according to Jase. No Back To The Future, no Indiana Jones 🤷🏻‍♀️ I haven’t watched a tv show/series since Alias🤭 -12. Water. No soda for me. I can’t ever get it to taste good. And let’s make it worse. It’s always with NO ICE. *Let’s have some fun;) ask me anything below. The best question wins a dress from my collection❤️

I'm thankful for all those that have supported me, all those that have booked me, and all those that have believed and continue to believe in me! And a very special thank you to my mom and stepdad who made it all possible back in 2009. I love you both and miss you very much! So if you've crooned a tune or shaken your booty at a DJ karaoke show, if you've booked me for your wedding or special event, if your business keeps me in business, if you've laughed at a cheesy joke during trivia, if you've racked your brain at a song title during music bingo, I say "Thank You". I wouldn't be able to do what I love without the support of those that I call friends and family. I've got some amazing things planned in the next 12 months so stay tuned! Cheers!

when people think of : “ ROC NATION “
they think of “ BEYONCÉ “ ( @beyonce ) & “ JAY Z “ ( @jayzmrcarter )
But there’s more to that brand than just the name .
when I think of “ #ROCNATION “ I think about a
new start a new beginning and chances ..
somethings in life goes to deep for words . as I sit and reflect on how far I’ve come with the music I can’t help but to shed tears . I’ve literally sacrificed so much in order to chase this dream , I’ve lost so much during the process such as friendships , family , money , sleep and my peace of mind . I went from hearing “ HERE’s TO CONY NOT BEING SIGNED “ to hearing “ CONGRATULATIONS I’M PROUD OF YOU “ ... emotional pain tend to hurts more than physical pain at times . what if I did give up on the music when I was told to give up ? I wouldn’t be here today to experience these moments . @madeinvietnam__ I owe you so much more than you’ll ever know , Them nights I almost gave up you reminded me of my worth and how important it was for the world to hear my sound . Seeing you fucking #CRY tears of joy after signing my deal replays in my head over and over again . The genuine love you show me is unexplainable especially knowing that you really want to see me win so bad , words can’t explain the love I have for you , I’d literally give my last fucking breath for you ...........
as I’m about to get ready to release my FIRST album under the #RocNation umbrella. I pray that GOD continue to bless me and this GOD given talent he created me with , I pray that I touch touch a couple souls with album , I pray that I heal a couple broken hearts with this album and most importantly I pray you all find healing through the words that I speak through this album . To EVERYONE that’s supporting thank you so much for the endless love without you guys I don’t know where my music and I would be I swear I don’t take any of this or any of you for granted . I ask you guys keep me in your prayers because in this world and industry #PRAYER is #HEALING !!!! once again THANK YOU ❤️❤️

So about 7 years ago I started to put together music mixes. I would burn the music on a physical CD and pass them out to friends at parties (before Spotify came along)!
.
I’ve always had a love for music and ability to compile songs that get people dancing and uplifted.
.
There was one song in particular that I fell in love with when I was a teenager. During my music mix days I found a remix of this song. Omg I was in love!
.
I listened to it for years to come. It was still a favorite. Well, that mix grew old and that song slowly faded away with it.
.
Fast forward to May, of this year, when I traveled to Bali. It was a special experience for me as Bali is a very spiritual and magical place.
.
This year has been a fast track and deep dive of awakening (to put it lightly).
.
One day on my trip I found myself sitting in a quaint high vibe cafe in Canggu with two of my best girlfriends when suddenly I hear THE song.
.
My full body rang with a shiver of goosebumps all over. It’s as if spirit was talking to me.
.
I immediately grabbed my phone and of course I Shazam it as I’d never heard this new mixed version of THE song.
.
I then continued to hear this song throughout my trip at various places and also intentionally, as I added it to this years new Spotify mix.
.
Cool..thank you spirit. I hear you.
.
But it doesn’t stop there.
.
I go back to San Diego and at the most random places this song comes on.
.
Seriously?! Yes!
.
This song (spirit) is following me everywhere. Nodding at me with each big move that I’m in the right place. I get it now.
.
I share this because I’ve pretty much been living as a gypsy the last 30 days up in Seattle.
.
My old controlling and routine loving self has been allowing flow to lead. I’ve pushed fears aside and have been trusting on a deeper level. Each step, place, home, friend, intro and more, being exactly what I need when I need it.
.
Last Friday night I found myself sitting with a good friend while eating sushi and talking about life and this journey - THE song comes on.
.
I stop mid sentence and I smile. Tears well up in my eyes and I know in that moment, I’m exactly on the right path. #gypsysoul

Here’s some of what I learned in 2018:

1. If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a hell no. Life is both short and long and there’s no reason to do something that you’re only lukewarm about.

2. Everyone starts as a beginner. I’ve been wanting to learn how to play the guitar for over 15 years and finally decided to take lessons this past year. I’m not quite sure why I waited so long to try something that I’ve always wanted to do or why I was so afraid to just try. Now that I’ve finally started playing, I find myself asking why I didn’t take the leap sooner! I missed out on 15+ years of making music because I didn’t want to just start.

3. The world doesn’t owe you anything. You don’t get what you don’t ask for and you definitely don’t get what you don’t work for.

4. You shouldn’t deprive yourself of what you love. A silly (but super real) example is my obsession with pizza. It’s always been one of my favorite things to eat, but I tried for a long time to really limit how often I ordered it because everyone around me in the influencer world and entertainment industry always seems to be on a diet or talking about how they really need to lose three pounds (just like Regina George except in real life). And then I realized that whether it’s a slice of cheesy magic or a bright pink sequined kimono, no one has the right to tell you how to live your life or what you should and should not love.

5. It’s not personal. I’m really grateful that this community is so positive and wonderful. I’ve seen a lot of mean comments, insensitive rants, and general lack of kindness both online and in real life, and I realized last year that it is almost always a reflection of the person saying the mean things opposed to the person who is on the receiving end.

6. Every day is a fresh start. If you’re in a job you don’t like, quit. If you want to travel, buy the plane ticket. If you feel like you’re surrounded by negative people, find new friends. You are in charge of you and there’s nowhere in the rule book of life that says you can’t change.

What did you learn in 2018?

As a music producer I'm more interested in working & developing my own original material, but when my sweet friend Nicola @hunzed_deejay_producer sent me his track & asked to remix it, I couldn't deny! Why? B'cause I love his original so much, the vibe...the rhythm, the vocals... I couldn’t help but be a part of it! I'm not a fan of refurbishing tracks I really dig so I gave his track "CHECK OUT" a meaning and interpretation that stood on its own legs...I just borrowed the vocals and ran with it...Lately there's been so much stress+relief, tears+joy, I wanted to bring a feeling of uplift into the music I was working on so I could escape into it even if for the moment. I hope you will appreciate what i've tried to express. I'm already so grateful for all the pre-release love my remix is receiving from the electronic music family: the supportive DJs, the ear-full radio/podcast heads & the cheerleading bloggers & reviewers who keep the enthusiasm for the music high! I'm so thankful, so surprised and so humbled. Thank you Nic for teaching me your resilience & respect, thank you Erik & the human + alien allies supporting me, pushing me, lifting me and believing in me. Thank you for being a part of my journey. The "CHECK OUT" EP featuring my remix is releasing officially very shortly. Keep a tight watch on my Instagram for info on where you can buy it, stream it, enjoy it. Remember, be good to each other 🖖🏼 See you on the dance floor...⠀

................ It's really overwhelming when you really think about how long you've known someone and all the memories you have created and been through.

I've known Nookie for around 15 years, that's half my age. Met him in High School when he just started year 7 and seen him grow up from then on. He always says that i influenced him a lot with certain things that he does and when i think about it, it blows my mind because it was watching a younger and better version of me growing up. From hairstyles, music, breakdancing, cars, style, djing and even moving away!! Anyway, the list could go on, but what was mad is that whatever he picked up from me, he would ace it!
@phearnouk i love you man, i really do, you've been the little brother to me that i never had since day one. I wish you a safe and fun journey on your next chapter in life and i know i won't need to worry about you because i know the type of person you are and you're in good hands.

I've known you for a long time but the last 4 years have brought us really close. From being my barber, djing together, benders and hunting for Pokemon literally everynight for a solid year straight hahahah.

Didn't really hit me till i left the airport that you were going and when you sent me that message. I couldn't reply cause i was driving, but i cried, like a proper cry too, tears kept coming the more i thought about it haha. I dont cry for any cunt either 😂.. @fifille.n take good care of him, enjoy each other's love. You two are perfect for each other and i will come and visit you three next year! Get those crepes ready 😂

Nooks brother, take care, stay safe but most of all have fun! ❤

This marks the end of a chapter. After thinking a lot about this, it feels as though a fresh start is necessary. The band started in 2014 as the brainchild of Tyler & mine with the intention of being a creative pop/rock collective. Before we knew it, we were playing shows with Alex & Jonah, making records, & packing Connecticut & NYC venues. As time went on, the band had evolved and formed into different iterations with the help of Marco, Dan, Brian (@flightofsilence), Tim, Kwasi, Nick, Sebastian, & Morgan. Throughout this time we had gotten to tour the eastern seaboard, release two records, pack another Connecticut headlining show, open for Jon Bellion, Hall & Oates, NeverShoutNever, & The Rocket Summer, & play HuskyThon. But in much of the past two years, Kalimur has been a moniker for solo music of mine that never really fit the rock sound we originally set out to make. At a crossroads between starting anew & continuing as Kalimur, I had chosen to keep moving forward under the band name. As I’ve reflected more, I chose this route because Kalimur was never just a band - it was the thread that weaved itself throughout my early 20s & helped define my college experience. I’ve gotten to meet & work with so many incredible people & thanks to those mentioned before, along with YOU, we were able to do amazing things. THANK YOU 🎉. But just because this chapter is closing doesn’t mean that the moments & connections we’ve built end. This is just the beginning of a new phase & one that I am very excited about, over at @BRETTCAMERONMUSIC. My sound has evolved & my vision has changed & it feels more authentic to put the music under a new name. Every fiber in my being is ready to take on new music, new shows, & new moments - & I want you to be a part of it. Follow @BRETTCAMERONMUSIC & keep in touch, for this is just the beginning. My new album “Mazes” is out now & new single “Feel Alive” is out 8/24 - link in bio & on my Insta page. So much love for these 4 years that no one can ever take away from us & here’s to the future -Brett 🕊

So while I’m not crazy with how I look in this photo, meeting @dualipa was such an amazing experience! It was definitely the best meet and greet I’ve ever been to. First off, there were only 22 people total there, so it was small and intimate. She started off by coming out and doing a little Q&A, answering questions from us for about 5 minutes. Then we went back out and individually got to go in, talk to her for a bit, get a Polaroid picture and a digital one that’ll be up soon (hoping I like how I look in those better, but I love how she looks here!). When it was my turn, i introduced myself and she gave me a hug, then I told her how much her music and just her have made an impact on my self confidence and self love and body image, how it’s made me so much more confident and feel better about myself, and like how i would’ve never worn something like this before. And then she said “I was gonna say, you look amazing, I absolutely love this!” And then she asked what material my shirt was, and literally rubbed her hand over my chest to feel it cuz she loved it haha. And she said how much I was rocking the look and shouldn’t be afraid to wear something like that. And she said how much it meant to her to hear that and that it was amazing to hear herself and her music have made that kind of impact on me. Then she hugged me again, I asked if for the first picture (this one) we could do a fierce bad bitch pose, since that’s how her music makes me feel. She looks amazing, I was just so nervous, my fierceness didn’t come out as much haha. ✨
She was honestly the sweetest and most humble person I’ve met, and was just so appreciative of all us being there and kept saying that. ✨
And now, I have front row seat for the show thanks to the early entry with our meet and greet, and I’m so excited to see Dua again, this time from the front instead on the back! ✨
Thank you @dualipa for such a great experience meeting you, I love you and your music so much, and you are a fashion icon that inspires me everyday! Thanks so much girl, can’t wait to see you rock tonight! Still can’t believe I got to meet a queen and icon like her!

I AIN'T NEVA heard anyone sing the ABCs like that.🙌🙌 We had a blast singing and listening to @pastorkerwinlee bring a mighty word about adding your 2 cents.💜💜💜 Listen y'all I don't fan out for many ppl...oh but when I do...MAN OH MAN! Let me take a minute to tell you about @msanitawilson. I've BEEN a fan of hers since she sang with @donaldlawrence &Co. singing "Happy Being Me" and instantly fell in love with her voice. I started paying attention to her, her stage presence, how she intentionally moved/placed her hands on certain words, listening to her smooth warm buttery tone, her SICKENING writing ability, watching how she gracefully praised God. Hey my mama always said, "if you want to be great pay attention to the greats." All I can say is she made me feel comfortable about my vocal ability and her music helped me to restore faith in myself. Her music provides the soundtrack to my life so when I met her I wanted to say so much but all I did was smile and giggle😂😂😂and I asked for a hug. She sweetly obliged. I always listened to her music but never had money to get it so let's just say I FINALLY had the funds and I got ALL her music and turned my mom on to her.

Btw...Since I biologically don't have sisters, she's like my spades playin big sis in my head!😂😂😂 She just looks like she plays spades😂😂😂 anywho love you to pieces #AnitaWilson

I remember NYE 2017 and counting down the minutes until 2018 because I couldn’t wait for the year to be over! You brought opportunity, life lessons, and moments I’ll be proud of for the rest of my life! New album and music videos, traveling to represent Austin music in multiple states. I even got to dust off my acting chops playing Miranda Lambert in a TV movie about her life! I was honored to dance in Dancing With The Stars Austin for @center4cp and raised almost 1.4 million! I got to play multiple radio stations throughout Texas and @loveandchaosmusic has gotten to play for @blackfret (something I had prayed about getting to do for years) and @aclfestival for the first time!
All of this has been such a blessing but the moment that sticks out to me most is opening up about my chronic struggle with Ulcerative Colitis. It’s still a battle everyday but this year I’ve learned that I am not this disease and that I am not alone in the struggle or fight. Though it might keep me down some days, one the days it doesn’t, I have leaned to bake in the sunshine of those days and make the most of it. Thank you to all who have supported me in my journey & music. Thank you for all the encouragement I got to push on! I could NOT have gotten through this year without all of the love that was thrown my way! I wish I could tag everyone that had a hand in my journey this year but that would be impossible. Love you all and here to an even better 2019!

I've gotta say #2017 was probably the #greatestyear in my #life so far. It started off pretty bad when I had to take a break from #college, and ended up being pretty #blessed when I continued my college #adventure, the bad ended up a #blessing in waiting cause otherwise I wouldn't have met some of the great people I met this year. I partially learned to play some #music #instruments, and that though I'm not the greatest of #singers I love music so much that I don't care so long as I have fun. Learned to skate and fell a couple times. Also discovered I #love people more than I thought before, well some people just can't be loved tho, learned that through a friend. Also learned i love #hugs, and #selfies save lives😄The highlight was definitely the connections I made, the good and bad, all the people I met and talked to even if It was just a hello. #Cried and #laughed, broke down and continued on with life. #Thankful for everyone who helped me through it all, I will cherish some of the #relationships I made for the rest of my life, and hopefully some do last that long. And with that I say #goodbye2017, now move over and let #2018 top you.

You love learning. You love animals and plants and all things nature. You love drawing, the same way you love art. You love music and instruments. You love sports and you're good at them just like everything else you do. Most of all you love loving all there is to be loved.

I’m a young female from South Sudan but born and raised in Syria , I was fortunate enough to move out and create a better life for myself, I have more opportunity to get into and do better things growing up. I’ve always been a huge fan of music rather its from Reggae to cash money records. Rap/Reggae/R&b has taken a huge toll on my life all the way from Biggie to peter tosh and Gregory Isaacs. The hip-hop culture has created a type of person I am today from self loving person like Remy Ma and Kiyanne is to the honesty in my songs , finding love , needing closure Type of person Drake is. My main goal is to influence a generation like mine with music just as my biggest stars I look upon have done. I don’t make music and try to purse my goals for purely money and fame. I do it to become great, to expand my horizons and expand my views on life and I love how my culture gave me this talent. Therefore, I hope I’ve explained a fair amount about my goals and who I take from in this world of music. And another thing I want to add my schedule be tight but I’m trying find time to squeeze it in there and I want you guys to be patient with my music and artwork because I promise you guys won’t be disappointed by what I have to say in my music. 🙌🏾🇸🇸🎤

where do you go when you can’t sleep? I used to dictate stories to my mom when I was a child so she could write them down for me. I used to lay staring at the moon listening to my favorite songs with nothing but a candle burning.

I used to dictate stories to my mom when I was a child so she could write them down for me. I used to lay staring at the moon listening to my favorite songs with nothing but a candle burning. And I always left the door open just wide enough for my cat to come sleep with me. ✨
It’s safe to say nothing has changed (except for my mom writing down my stories, I FINALLY learned how to do that myself). I’m all grown up, but forever feeling just like a child. You’re never too old to disappear into your imagination, put on a hat and pretend you’re someone else. You’re never too old to let a song take you somewhere away. ✨
This is where I’ve been these past few months. I’ve been creating an experience to share with you. I’ve been creating something to empower and inspire. I’ve been creating something to help you believe that “you can too”. My first solo album in years is coming out next month. It’s music for the night time. It’s called Late Night Feeler and that’s exactly who it’s for. Music for sleep, drives, moments, loneliness, anger, joy, music to disappear and float away to. Sharing it will be sharing a part of my deep feeling magic soul with you. I’ll be performing with my band August 11th at Skully’s in Columbus, Ohio. Tickets on Skullys.org ✨
I’ve had my head in a computer and heart in the clouds planning this years The World of Atlas Black, which is a poetry and music festival I’ve created with my friends and team @secretmidnightpress. It’s a curious gothic fantasy world where wonder is stirred and ideas come to life. I’ll be performing new poetry and playing some songs alongside @ashleyapplepie and @leemartenspoetry. We’ll be showing short films by @annaakana and #ElevatePictures. (Also come get your face painted by @ksnickss and @cassiehw). Surprise musical guest and sweet friend of mine @rustyclanton. Ahh!!! And so much more. The craziest dressed will win a prize, so come, feel safe to be yourself, bring a poem for the open mic, and make some friends. You can find tickets on skullys.org as well! Be there August 12th.

I seem to have run out of room.
I guess I’ll have to post more.
I love you DFMBs and LNFs!

Didn’t think I’d ever do one of these but what can I say? 2018 has been a weird one. I feel like I’ve taken small steps forward, but have also been rocked miles back. This may be the first time I’m actually looking forward to a new year, and a fresh start.

Two weeks ago I spent my birthday gathering boxes and packing up the belongings of the girl I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with. Although it’s been months since she felt it best that we go our separate ways, poor timing has seen the holiday season filled with mortgage re-applications, legal fees, land title changes....emptiness. If she never ends up reading this, I hope she knows I still love her more than anything in this world, I think about her every day, but most importantly, I sincerely hope that she finds the happiness she has been so desperately searching for.

On a more positive note, my proudest moment was finally being able to find the strength to shed some light on my departure from the band. The amount of positivity and support expressed from all over the world helped grant me some much needed closure. I still have a long way to go, but I’m going to continue working on personal care, and setting aside time for myself in hopes of (potentially) trying to churn out some new music in 2019. I haven’t decided what would be more therapeutic: Sad Boi songs in the style of the latest autotuned SoundCloud rapper, or writing the most brutal/heavy/downtuned/dissonant/pissed/groovy music I’ve ever written. I have a feeling I know which of the two most of you would all prefer. Which ever way it goes, @thejoshuatravis, feel free to lend a hand here.

In summary (of what I am)…..[yeah yeah, bad joke] I have no idea what 2019 has in store for me. As scared as I am, I can’t shake the feeling that there’s something exciting around the corner. To all of you, the friends that have reached out and helped me through these past 12 months, I wish nothing but good luck and fortune. Let us be the ones to fly out the gate and kick 2019 in the fucking chest!

R.I.P. 2018.

I know I go for long periods of silence, not releasing new poetry or music and disengaging from social media. Those close to me know I’ve been working, WORKING. I’ve written a film, a new collection of poetry, a play, producing and shopping a tv show, started a production company. A lot of work. A lot of love being made. Most of which happens very quietly without fanfare or recognition besides a few close friends and partners. InshaAllah in the first quarter of 2019 you’ll see more from me than you have in years (warning: it may get rather spammish but I just have a lot to put in the world after years of quiet). I usually don’t do well with letting people in on “process” stage of my work. I am opening up to share more now though. ‘‘Tis the season. First of the projects is a pilot/sizzle for our show, Cornerstore Folklore. This is a 11min sample of how our 30min show will look/feel. Watch it. Share it. It’s in my bio. I love you. I appreciate you. #trueandliving #cornerstorefolklore #poetry #travel # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # Cornerstore Folklore follows internationally renowned poet, Amir Sulaiman, as he travels the globe and explores world cultures through the lens of their different poetry traditions while contrasting them with his own poetry tradition of hip hop lyricism.  As he travels farther out into the world, he explores deeper into himself.

🤔❤️🤙🏾 Looking back at this past year and even further back I’ve came in this lifetime has a Puerto Rican with Dominican blood that embraced his weird side at all times... from making people laugh, connect and share their experiences with individuals they would’ve never connected without me being the bridge of connection... I’ve gone from bachata, bomba, salsa y plena to EDM, Hip Hop, classical music and even becoming a rapper under the name @richportraps •


🎵🙈🙃 It’s quite the journey I’ve been navigating, slowly discovering new passions, new love 💕, new ideas 💡, new inspirational people and strategies to fully expand even further my dreams, goals and deepest desires. 2018 was quite the year of growth for me and in this upcoming year we are going to blast off towards every single one of my dreams and take massive actions to make them come true! Thanks for everyone sharing these experiences with me! Love you ♥️🙌🏾🎵🌴👏🏾 •

I don't buy a lot of shoes, but when I do, I buy them to commemorate significant events in my life. I've purchased two pairs of shoes in the last two years; the first pair was purchased the day before we opened SUPPLY. And the second was right before Sunny was born.
〰️
In this photo, you see two pairs: the pair I bought the day before SUPPLY opened, and the brand new pair I just purchased today to commemorate the announcement we made earlier this week about walk in love.
〰️
The older pair tells you where I have been. It's the pair I wore while I walked to work day in and day out, listening to music, praying for our town and laughing at my favorite podcasts. It's the pair I wore to the hospital to welcome Sunny to this world. It's the pair that I wore while June and I ran up and down our street countless times, and played at the parks. It's the pair that I wore while I cleaned up after events, moved furniture, folded t-shirts and ran my business.  It's the pair that I was wearing when I finally decided to lay it down. 〰️
The new pair doesn't have a story yet.  It's the first page of the next chapter.  It's a pair of unlimited potential.  It's the pair that I will wear while Brooke and I figure out what's next, make big decisions and strive to live with faith instead of fear. 〰️
Our shoes are one of those rare things in our lives that both show us where we've been and take us to where we are going.  I am excited to see where this pair takes me. And when the time arrives for me to trade them in for another pair, I will look back fondly at all the places they carried me. 〰️
I decided today that Brooke and June were going to join me in my shoe tradition, so we all picked out a new pair this morning because this next chapter of our life will be a family journey. (Sunny didn't get a pair because she's a baby and doesn't wear shoes yet! 😂 But someday she'll join us.)
〰️
It's easy to forget where you've been, which is why I've set up this simple reminder. Maybe new shoes aren't right for you, but I'd encourage you to find something that works as a reminder -- a marking point -- so you can remember where you've been and still stay focused on where you are going.

TL:DR I went to a lot of really personally important shows in the last month and a half that were sick as fuck and I’ve been avoiding posting on social media.
Over the past month and half I’ve 3 legitimately life changing shows that we’re kinda weird mild stones but also so profoundly amazing because of the stunning performances and the overwhelming passion of the crowd.
King khan & the shrines: I had a friend in high school that had such an outrageously good taste in music, that whenever he’d mention a band I’d badger them afterwards to repeat ever band they had mentioned so I could check them out later. One of those bands happened to be the dynamic duo of King Khan & bbq show. After falling in love with the albums they had out at the time, I started to dive deeper into the history of the band learning that the two members had been in a Montreal punk band called the space shits but also had their own solo things on the side. King khans off shoot of a blazing, soulful wildfire, tinged with R&B stylings that is King khan & the shrines soon became a huge inspiration for me. The power of the horns, the tight Rhythms, the scorching guitar solos, the shrieks of a banshees love full soul. That was king khan for me. Being able to not only see him live but to shake his hand, thank him, and wish him a good night was more than I had ever hoped for.
IDLES: Setting a huge bar in 2017 with their album brutalism, idles soon became a band that I’d keep on my radar for the foreseeable future. The witty and almost snarky sense of humour mixed with a loud voice for women’s rights, extinguishing the flames of race Issues, and the dismantling of toxic masculinity idles released their second album Joy as an act of Resistance earlier this year. Thanks to @griffinpickel I quickly jumped on this album and fell I love with it. Learning ever lyric and song, replaying it weeks on end until the night I got to see one of those most lively and lovingly, destructive performances I had ever witnessed, idles left it’s mark by hoping into the crowd and getting fans to play their instruments as well as passing a mic around and letting people sing. Not to mention the obviously amazing

But the essence of this experience is in the #memories and in the #emotions, so lemme blabber for a while, trying to explain what made my heart race.
~
First of all, thank you @letthemfallband. Thank you for coming all the way up across #Italy, thank you for the amazing show, it was far far beyond any expectation I had (and believe me, I already thought you'd be pretty epic). Thank you for being such adorable beans, for your smiles, for the hugs, for your words, for your amazing, inspiring and moving #music. Thank you, it was definitively one of the best nights of my entire life. I laughed, I cried, I felt, I screamed my heart out.. and this is basically everything life should be about.
A little bit extra thank you to @ritaltf, for recognizing me the moment I entered the #merch room and literally cuausing my 'little fangirl me' a tremendous heart-attack, for letting me sing and, generally speaking, for being such a wonderful woman I admire and adore ❤️
~
Thank you, from the bottom of my ol' auntie heart, to my #WolfSquad @greenlikepain, @malaluna.art and @artofaka for sharing this amazing night with me, baring with me being all loud and childish and OMG IT'S THEM NEAR THE VAN! I Love you to bits ❤️
~
And last but not least, thank you to the most amazing little emoHpunkrockcorekid sisters I could ask for @sofiallegraragazzamorta, @kangaezu.ni and @deavthtoll, if there's someone in the world that can really feel what I feel about the music and the bands I love, that's the three of you. To more gigs and subtle stalking together, gals ❤️

Incase you’re new to my Instagram - welcome! I spend my days advocating for joy, hope and wellness through music, podcasts and film. I’m also a newlywed, so you’ll likely see @theaaroncollins in my story quite a bit 💙
________
You might know me from my music. I’ve been nominated for GRAMMYs, trended on YouTube and have won @ the Dove Awards for songs like Hold Me, Beautiful Day and Daughter of the King. I’m also featured on “Storyteller” by @morganharpernichols - Instagram’s favorite quote-creating human and my older sister 👯‍♀️

You may have also seen my YouTube videos - I’ve been creating there for 12 years. Or maybe heard my podcast “Wait It Out” about dating and relationships. Or maybe you saw my bi-monthly dance to “Jenny From the Block” and figured the awkwardness was too strong not to follow 🙏🏽
__________
I have Tourette Syndrome. So that’s annoying. But I’ve learned that life’s about the recovery more than the downfall so i find the confidence in the not-so-great and invest in the resilience. TS, OCD, ADHD and Anxiety may be significant, but my God, my hope and my joy are even greater.
__________
I sing. I write. I have a podcast. I direct music videos and short films. I play guitar and the banjo. Im slightly obsessed with kickboxing but not as much as i am talking about dating, relationships and finding your worth and value. I love Jesus the most. Love people a bit. And it’s absolutely wonderful to meet you :)

Tell me about yourself! What do you love?!

The last few years my focus has been shifted away from the things that have been my life for most of my time alive. music has always been my primary focus from playing instruments to songwriting/producing. music saved my life over 20 years ago as it became a way to cope and connect. In 2012 i started on a quest to record an album as i just felt it was time for me to create something that would live on after me. something timeless. after recording a whole album i decided it wasn’t right n walked away. in that time i went through a bad break up which then lead me to a special person who encouraged me in ways i never could have encouraged myself. i went back to the studio n worked for a year on what would become my album. as the album was nearing completion i lost that special someone to a tragedy. i stayed focused n pushed the album out knowing it needed to b completed. i then found myself on a wrong path being pulled in a wrong direction. i then lost a really close friend. then my dogs. then my father followed by my cousin followed by another dear friend. i lost about 75% of my core of friends n family all within a few years. meanwhile i started working a day job in a pharmacy hoping to stay busy mentally but i’ve noticed my creativity has been completely gone. i don’t even have the urge to take photos or even touch my guitar. i have tried buying more guitars. more things to occupy my mind n still nothing has got the fire burning again. it’s safe to say i’ve been pretty lost. stuck in a haze. unsure of my direction. unsure if my whole life before dedicated to music was even worth it. debating on what to do with myself. as i am approaching my 40th year here on earth i still am so uncertain of what my calling is. still looking for direction. hoping those love ones somehow help guide me. i miss the things i used to do but i also just don’t have the focus to do them anymore. it’s been almost 3 years since i’ve publicly performed whereas i used to make a living doing so. everyday i was on a stage. so i put this out into the universe not so much as to get answers but as a way of accepting the life i’ve been given. trying to focus again. #love #life #story

Thank God! I’m nothing like the niggas who’s only focus is 🐱. I love 🐱 myself but securing my Son’s future and getting to these bags 💰💰💰💰💰are my main priorities. 13 years ago I told myself I would one day be one of the dopest rappers & with dedication , every day working on my craft , ambition , love for the art & my love for writing / creating I did just that. the law of attraction is Real as fuck! We create our own reality💯 once I got nice I pushed myself even further & stopped writing my songs down & started just throwing the beats on repeat & building my songs in my head. One for the challenge , two I like to be hands free & have my eyes closed well I’m recording so I can fully zone out & 3 when I make voice memos of me rapping the songs before I hit the studio I can remember my exact emotions/deliveries. I wanted to meet Big Sean back in 2009 & rap to him I went from just watching him on youtube 2 years later 2011 at his Irving Plaza Finally Famous album release FIRST CONCERT I EVER ATTENDED getting to rap to him 💪 I even got his contact info & from that point on we’ve been building 🤙 every time we see each other it’s love he’s put me in a bunch of his motivational videos like “Risk” & “Patience” I met his mom , introduced him to my sons mother , showed him pictures of my Son , ,gaven him a gift which was a book called the Metu Neter , he’s given me tickets to his shows like It’s nothing but great vibes with him same thing with Jhene Aiko thought she was a dope raw artist wanted to give her a gift back in 2013 to let her know I fucks with her music odeee & I did I got her a custom made “Fly Ass Pisces 3:16” bracelet + took pics & spoke about her music. Jhene & Sean are the realist artists I met in the industry. The the point to me telling y’all about this is I would not have done none of these dope things Had I not seem the possibilities , drill it in my mind that it will happen , put in the foot

Today was one of those moments in your life you’ll never forget. The Musical legend,Roberta Flack was in our Atlantic Records office today. Her first music home. .
The irony is she’s my Alpha Chapter Sorority Sister. I was given the honor and duty by my Big Sister Toya Watts 5 years ago to connect with her to bring her a very special gift, a photo of her on the Howard University campus with her Delta Sigma Theta sorority sisters. She might be 16 or 17 years old in the photo. I’ve always wanted to give it her directly so I’ve held on to it all these years with the faith that one day, I’d meet my Big Sister and give her a big Alpha Chapter hug from me and our entire chapter. Today was the day!!
She was overjoyed and I was soo humbled to be in her acquaintance but we have the bond of sisterhood that will forever keep us together. We all are forever united through our love of Howard University and Bison are never strangers. She was warm and loving. She also has her Alpha Chapter teeshirt from our Centennial celebration. God is good! I’ve kept my word to my big sister Toya Watts who has since passed away #RIPToyaWatts. I know she is yelling “Great job little sister” from heaven. I did it Toya!!! .

It hurts me to announce that my band, Saving Athens, is longer together. I’ve heard that some people are meant to come into your life and come for a certain reason. Maybe it’s to teach you a lesson, or someone to help you through a difficult time, or whatever the case may be. I can wholeheartedly say that the people in the photos changed my life for good. The adventures and crazy experiences we had a definite highlight of my life. We went from playing a show at the Elks Lodge in Brewster to Playing in front of a few thousand people. What an experience that was. Since I was 13, Music was and still is my passion. I can’t count the number of people that told me it’s not realistic and that I should go get a degree and work a normal job. If I had done that I would not have had the experiences that I did. There is no bigger thrill that I experienced than getting on stage and playing music that I took part in writing, them having people come up to you and say they love your music. So I just wanted to thank all of my band members for the ride of a life time. Thank you to everyone who came out to support us, whether it was coming to a show, buying merch, or just giving our music a chance. Our EP “Roman Candles” will continue to stay online so people can stream it from wherever they want. But for me I can say that the pursuit of music is not dead. I’ll be attending Full Sail University next year to produce and record music professionally. One last time, thank you to these guys and to our fans. It truly was a blessing to be part of the Saving Athens movement. #savingathens

So I’ve been wanting to do this for so long. I’ve been crazy nervous but I’m so excited to finally share some of my music with you all!
Music has saved me these past 2 years and been the vehicle to bare my soul when I couldn’t speak in any other way. When I sing and when I dance, there is a freedom like no other. My soul is raw, real, and I literally wear my emotions on my sleeve. It is both terrifying and the best feeling in the whole wide world! It has given me some of the most precious memories and brought the most special of people into my life.
Thank you, Mom (Linda Merrifield King) for bringing the gift of music into my life from the womb 🙂. Thank you, Chad for believing in me and encouraging me to share what’s been in my heart. And thank you to my precious girls who encourage me to keep following my dreams. Thank you all for listening! Please share and Hope you enjoy! Love you all and have an amazing weekend!❤️❤️❤️.

Almost 2 years ago my friends @southerncollaborative @jklemoine @manmosahandcrafted and I had this hair-brained to throw an impromptu holiday makers market at a place we owned in Mid-City...

We invited our maker friends, rounded up some food and music and it was the perfect last minute local shopping excuse/a really good time... it made too much sense not to do it again so by the next month it became a monthly market with somewhere between 40-70 makers at a time, always local live music, the best local eats, art installs and a space for everyone to pass a good time in.

In a word this little market has been good.

I’ve met and been blown away by some incredibly talented (and kind) local makers and artists. I’ve seen collaborations and friendships born out of it and tiny new businesses grow to bigger than they expected. I’ve seen the neighborhood embrace us like one big Mid-City house party.

If you love hand crafted goods, live music, the most talented balloon twister this side of the Mississippi and food made for Instagram pictures come check out the @midcitymakersmarket We’ve got one a month through the end of the year and a big 2 year birthday party in December 🎈

Thank you to all the makers who bring their heart and souls to the shows and thank you to everyone who comes to enjoy their work! We love love love what this once a month party has become and couldn’t do it without all of you ♥️

Piece by @crybabystitch - one of the very talented makers at the market (go check out her work, it’s witty and real and I dare you not to laugh ;)

I'm so excited that @the_levellers have started re-releasing their back catalogue on vinyl that I had to bust this triple Greatest Hits LP out today! I've been a fan since 1994 when I heard their Levelling The Land album for the first time, and I've got all of their albums spread out over CDs and vinyls but I'm rebuying them all now since their re-releases all look absolutely amazing and to be honest - The originals that I've got in my collection have been played a lot and might deserve vinyl retirement.

Most folk punk doesn't excite me. I like folk music and I love punk, but when they meet it usually turns into a bunch of freeloaders looking like the uruk-hais Saurman created in The Two Towers with bad hygiene playing out of tune banjos while screaming about bikes.

However, that's not the case with The Levellers. This is a band that has been around since 1998, had their commercial peak in the 90ies but always stuck to what they believed in and kept on releasing great albums and always, always toured. In that sense they are like the Ramones or Motörhead of folk punk, and at this point I've lost track on how many times I've seen them live. Musically they are all shredders, and their ability to write catchy songs where their Clash-rooted groovy punk rock blends with the storytelling of folk music delivered by lead singer Mark Chadwick (who sounds like a punk reincarnation of John Lennon) makes them 30 years down the road one of my favorite bands. They have too many good songs for me to even try picking a few favorites, so I'm happy they put together this collection so I don't have to make that effort!
If you're not too familiar with their music, and if you're living in the US chances are you're not, this this Greatest Hits is a very good place to start. You'll be surprised how damn good they are! I love this band, always have and always will.

I’m superstitious, I believe in ghosts and sprits (I saw them often when I was a kid), past lives, crystals, angels and God. I’ve done past life regression meditation twice and had some very in dept ‘movie like’ visions into things from the past...it was amazing! 🔮.
.
I have excellent internal navigation - I only need to go somewhere once and I can usually get back there again. Also, before going to a new country I study locations we are visiting on Google maps so that when I get there, I already feel familiar. Which sounds super geeky, but it mostly helps me with anxiety - as I can feel panicky and overwhelmed in a new environment 🕊.

Aaron and I started dating in 2005 when Jah was just 4 yrs old & we moved in with each other 2 years later. He proposed in Central Park, NYC and is still milking the fact that it was the only romantic thing he needed to do this this decade LOL (Love you babe! 😘). We’ve been married for nearly 9 years & we BOTH always forget our anniversary till Mum texts us “Happy Anniversary”. I’m terrible with dates! Luckily our birthdays are day apart so we’ll never forget that 😜.

I was a homie in my teens and they say that the music you listened to when you were 15 yrs old is the music you will love for life. I still know all the raps and lyrics to all those 90’s songs I loved back then and they (and my ghetto side) particularly comes out after a few drinks. Fav quote: “I’m still Jenny from the block” 💁🏻‍♀️.

We've just got back from an amazing family time in Portugal and now mummy and daddy are in Milan because mummy wanted to go and see CNCO performing live. Am so obsessed with them or should I say their music that the hubby got calling me a groupie😂😂 He says sometimes he forgets am half white until I start with my white self or start listening to my portuguese/Latin music lol. I love my roots and I know these guys won't be coming anytime soon to England so I had to move my ass to beautiful Milan just for them. Groupie or what😭😭😭 Anyways it was a blast!! I loved it. I love them! I love Spanish music! I hope they start coming for our spanish/Latin/Portuguese community here in England too so I won't have to pay extra to go abroad😄

I've got to give a big shout to my hubby though @KmdBrumtown .. He agreed to come all this way with me to keep me company and stand for 2 hours to listen to Spanish music, a language he doesn't understand. Thank you for the patience🙈😁 @CNCOMusic @RichardCamacho @erickbriancolon @zabdieldejesus @joelpimentel @Christopherbvelezm

.

“To_Get_Her: A Musical” was born out of my need to be challenged. At that point in film school I felt more than prepared for what they threw at me and I wanted to do something I felt would be different from what I’ve done before. I wrote the story, @davidcinnella made the storyboards, I found a musician, @rodney.dudum who made some amazing music (even though @adnlewis is in this I didn’t ask him to do the music because...I didn’t know he made music 😅) and I would spend the next few weeks writing lyrics whenever I could.
.
.
With the lyrics written, I had my actors, including my great leads @jolettahardman and @brothertreebranch , sing the songs that ADN and I demoed in the common room of our dorm.
.
.
I lost a location the DAY BEFORE shooting and I was commiserating about it with @bangbang_md who all of a sudden gave me a new location right there and then. I was always grateful with how generous JB had always been and he saved my shoot. ADN mixed the songs and then we show the next day with the help of my DP @jsndigital we shot it.
.
.
I spent a while editing it, @sdvim made me a dope logo and the film was done! I presented as my final and it went over well, but even if it hadn’t, I look back today and find it amazing how many things came together magically to make this. I love film and the process of creating is always a journey...a journey I’m always more than happy to take. I told you I’m a sap. #directorscommentary #filmmakerfriday

But this morning I played "Better" and I've realized how much I miss her music and her encourgement. Her music is nothing like I have heard before. It's catchy, it's encouraging and uplifting and makes my day a whole lot better once it is played. First off, I really just want to say thank you to Britt Britt your music means so much to me and I will always love how you use your music as a ministry for a possitive influence towards others. Every day I turn it on, my day automatically changes for the better. Second, I want to wish you a very happy birthday may it be the best and most cherished birthdays ever. You deserve the world and lastly, I pray that this year is one of the best, most memorable, and fun years of your life Britt. May God bring you peace as you go through yet another tour, may he give you rest when you deserve the rest, may he give you wisdom as you continue to lead and teach other girls in this generation that they are worth something, and that they can be the change in the world and make light of who they really are.

I wanna let those who don’t know about the next chapter in my life. Around April, the Lord provided me with a job as the Music Director for Cornerstone Bible Church in Westfield, Indiana! I’m so blessed and super excited to get to lead people in singing God’s praises at this church! I leave this morning for Indiana and I just wanted to thank a few people
.
.
.

I’m thankful to all of my past teachers, basketball coaches, pastors, and other people who’ve invested in me. Thank you Christine DeMore, you sparked a love for music in me. I’m most thankful for the past four years at The Master’s University. These have been the best four years of my life so far and I’ve been able to learn things that are truly invaluable. I give a big thank you to all of my Professors, especially those in the Music Department. Thank you Dr. Plew for encouraging me and inspiring me to be a better musician, to give my life to serve and give the glory to the Giver of all gifts. Super thankful to have been able to lead Chapel Band this last year and discover my desire to help lead music in Church and a lot of what that means. Forever grateful to my close friends. You guys have always been there for me and you all too have helped me become the person I am today. I know that in Christ, we’ll be friends forever.
.
.
.

And as I leave my family and the state I grew up in to start the next chapter today, I ask those close friends to pray for me. Pray that I would always give glory to God with a thankful heart. Pray that I would have confidence in myself but at the same time always be ready to learn more. And pray that I wouldn’t grow weary and always remember the significance of singing praises to The Name Above All Names. God is always working!
.
Super excited to start another brand new chapter. 😁
.
Don’t get too many of these haha

For those who wanted to know,

Much Love ✌🏾

notes on the album:

my (slightly embellished) autobiographical tale of battles with mental health at a young age. I've always expressed myself artistically, particularly with my words. Even then though, so much of this stuff was wayyyy too heavy for me to try to approach writing about, let alone sharing with anyone. It took years & years & years to accept my past & where I've come from & build up the ability to flip it into art (that I'm proud of, especially). It's carthatic. It's an incredible weight off my back. For reals. So, in a sense to pay honest homage to my bipolar disorder: the album is two-sided. :) The first side is prettty raw - I'm brutally honest about my adolescence with my lyrics. The second half of the album is purely instrumental, shifting genres altogether into, I dunno, like, some sort of experimental electro something or other - kinda hard to describe.

That said, a crucial reminder to all:
Every day, art saves me. Music saves me. Words save me. Because art matters. YOU MATTER. We all (*are*) matter. Nobody's alone. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I love you. You ARE loved. There's help. (Help exists in many many forms!) Reach out. Express yourself. Be your damn proud weird self. Eff the haters. Seriously.

ALSO:
Infinite love to my beautiful wife @lizanayasheils for her practically unbelievable patience in this process. Not only that, of course, but she absolutely kills it on the intro, interlude, & outro violin dopeness. Seriously this album wouldn't exist if not for her love, support, & encouragement. I probably would have given up a long time ago. I love you so much, Elizabeth.

Plus:
Shouts to Alex Miller at @dojorecording for his amazing work on the album artwork, to @insta_kylematthew for his bad ass work on the "Bad Fetish" vid, & to @halodoesntsuck over at #fourfingerdistro & @redeyeworldwide for helping get the music out there.

And of course...
Shouts to you for listening (& somehow reading this whole thing)! scatterboxxmusic.com

I think that's it's time that this account comes to an end. I've had this page for almost 4 years now- starting properly when I had just turned 13. I am 17 now. And obviously in that time, people grow and change.
I've been able to share my life as well as my love for this band on here these years, been able to post my music and art and troubles and every one of you has been there to listen to me, support me, and you've actually grown me as a person.
I mean this with all my heart- interacting with you guys has allowed me to do things in my life I would never have dreamed, you made my confidence grow so tremendously that I took up music properly and am now recording an EP. You encouraged me and my music, and we've talked almost every single day- over DM, in comments, whatever. You encouraged me to create a YouTube channel and post music on Soundcloud. We've also been able to talk about the music and art of the people I post about, which is magical. Being able to spread love and opinions about Nirvana/Hole's music is truly incredible- the music, legacy and message from these people deserves to be spread and carried on.
However, recently, my life has become so busy- changes have made a big place in it; I started college, got a job, I've been spending more time away from my fanpage and more time on my music page because I feel that is what I must focus on!
We used to interact a whole lot more on here- there would be more comments, conversations- and I don't know why that's slowly started to change and become less, but it doesn't feel too good. I'm a lot older now and feel as though the best step would be to move on from this incredible chapter in my life, as I feel that it has possibly come to a close.
Thank you all so much for the love and support for these years, you've got me through so much and I hope I could have done the same. Im forever grateful. I won't deactivate this account, I want to keep it up for the memories.
You can find me on my personal/music account @charlescantbreathe , I post on there almost every day, it would be cool to see your faces still. All news about the EP will be there too.
All the best!
Charlie ❤️

My next door neighbors (their ages are in early 60's) Mr. Jim and Mrs. Roni have been a huge blessing in my life. Reminding me the privilege to love people that are nowhere near related to you by blood. Unfortunately Roni passed away in 2015 and we've been closer to Jim more than ever. Jim has a deep appreciation for music but has never experienced any kind of Electronic Dance Music. Then one day, on a relaxing weekend, Jim usually plays music and I noticed he was listening to the same CD over and over again because it reminds him dearly of his wife Roni. I wanted to gift Mr. Jim my favorite collection of Above & Beyond music including A&B's acoustic albums. I presented Jim with 3 A&B CD's and explained to him the purpose of A&B's music and the trance community. He was beyond excited to listen to something new and meaningful. It has been weeks and almost every single day I hear Jim listening to Above & Beyond music. This video in particular, I overheard Jim playing "Alchemy" very loud and proud and I couldn't have established a stronger connection with him and I'm so happy that he is able to connect to Above & Beyonds music to a very personal level. Music playing from Jims house makes me feel that Roni is still around with us. R.I.P Roni, I miss and love you and I love you Mr. Jim 💙 @aboveandbeyond @anjunabeats @anjunadeep #aboveandbeyond #anb #anjunabeats #anjuna #anjunafamily #trance #plur #electronicdancemusic #love #neighbors #sandiego

This video was a milestone in our relationship. We’ve gone through so many hard challenges and the fire. Our relationship was tested as a couple this year. But our love endured and is stronger than ever. As we transition into next year bearing great loss as a family we look to the future of what we will accomplish as a queer couple who wants to inspire! Malinder and I are finally ready to take over the world! Follow our new page. @herdrummerherdancer🏳️‍🌈👯‍♀️ .

Love is love no matter what form it comes in. To show same sex queer relationships in an Indian music video is unheard of and groung breaking. This proves the negative mentality toward gay in desi and other black or brown cultures is changing. This shows more and more that Queer is the new normal.💋

Thank you @chayakumar for directing this video. Thank you for having @m2ray5 and I represent #queer and interracial #love in your new music video. I love this remix! This has been one of my favorite tunes since Ma youth! I’m super proud to be Desi and West Indian and Queer 🇮🇳🇹🇹 🏳️‍🌈•

There has been a post floating around facebook for the last week that @dannymichelmusic made about the realities of being a songwriter and musician in 2018. It almost knocked me off my feet - not because I was surprised - but because it is so easy to think that you’re the only one struggling, and in a way it was nice to know I am not alone.
.
Earlier this year, when I was going through my taxes from a few years back I noticed all of the post office receipts, it looked as though I use to go to the post office multiple times a week. I realized in that moment that I was seeing the direct effects of music streaming services. People have quit buying CDs and physical forms of music, because it is so easy to click play on apple music or spotify. Don’t get me wrong - I use those services too - because it has become so easy to listen to anything a person wants to at any given point and time - BUT it is those same services that are making it hard for musicians like me to make an actual living. The only way I’ve been able to make any sort of a living anymore is by playing live shows. When I started touring - I started because I loved the open road. I STILL love being on the road. But I’ve got two kids now and the tours keep getting longer and more gruelling to compensate for the lack of income music sales and streams.
.
I wish I knew what the answer was. I spend more hours than I like to admit cruising job postings and wondering if I should go back to school. But this is what I do - how does one just walk away?
.
Mostly, what I took away from Danny’s post was his sheer sense of honesty. He put it well when he said the following: “No one needs to feel sorry for me. This is what I do. And I’m not scolding anyone or suggesting people stop using these services. I don’t know what the answer is. But I hope musicians speak up about what’s really happening. Music fans deserve to know how this all works and why the artists they love may soon be gone.”
.
This #Blackfriday and holiday season, I challenge you to support independent songwriters - BUY music instead of just listening to it. It makes such a different to small independent songwriters like me.

I don't really believe in New Year Resolutions mostly because I never seem to be able to keep it going for more than a few weeks or a month at most. But if you ask me what my resolution is for 2019, and I had to answer, I would say CONSISTENCY.
For years I struggled to consistently put out music while still living life, going through it's challenges and chasing my business goals. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Trying to tune out the world and all the trials and tribulations I've gone through, run the numerous businesses I have and still make good music that y'all can vibe to. Shit hasn't been easy. I remember waking up sometime this past October and it dawned on me that I haven't released a single or any original music since 2015! That's 4yrs ago. I was so mad at myself and promised myself NEVER AGAIN! I love this music shit and I want this shit. I've watched my peers who came after me, go pass me, get deals and live the dream I want. I ain't jealous at all tho. I'm happy af for them. But it's an ugly reminder about what my inconsistency has cost me. I've lost deals because of it, tour opportunities, sponsorships etc. So this year, I'm going for it all! I'm inspired again. I'm hungry again. I'm gonna reclaim my spot and everything I've lost. I'm dropping Freestyles, I'm dropping singles, I'm dropping at least one album, music videos, tours, everything! So watch out y'all, and follow me on this journey. I'm sure everyone got a story like this. Let 2019 be our year of hard work and CONSISTENCY. Our dreams can and will come true! Let's get it!

I've been wanting to post this for over a week now but I couldn't really find the words I wanted to say, and I really want this to be perfect because even though they'll never see it, I just need to write down how I feel. so a while ago was #2yearswithbts and it made me really think about how much these seven boys actually mean to me and Ive thought for hours every night since then about how much they mean to me. while thinking, I actually started crying a few times because bts means the entire world to me. I honestly love them so much that I don't really know how to describe it, and that's why I've been struggling to put this into words for the past few nights. I guess I should start at the very beginning. Ive always loved rock music, so who would expect that a korean hip hop group would eventually become my favorite thing in the world? I found bts about a year ago. it was a little less than a month after I started getting in to kpop when I found n.o, and it was the first bts video I ever watched and first song I had ever heard. then I watched no more dream, we are bulletproof, boy in luv, and just one day, and by the time I had watched all of their music videos that were all ready out, I was already falling in love. but what I didn't know was that these seven boys would be so different from any other groups and mean more to me than anything else in the world. I quickly learned all of their names and taehyung was my first bias in bts, mostly just because he was a cutie and because v was the easiest name to remember for me. but that didn't last long. my bias jumped around from member to member as I learned more about them and quickly fell more and more in love with them every day, and a few weeks later I just decided to give up on picking a bias because they're all just so fucking perfect. then they had their comeback with dark and wild, and this was really big for me because one - my favorite group was having a comeback, and two - because it was the first comeback that i had witnessed since I started liking kpop about two months earlier. I remember crying the first time I heard let me know when it came out for a day a few days before their actual comeback.

A huge thank you to my family and John & @_christinestorm for all your support!

My discovery of Stick Figure Music began about 4 years ago. I found Stick's music thru Rebelution and Since finding Stick, it has been life changing for me. I am a stage 3 colon Cancer Survivor of 10 years and although I didn't know of Stick's music during my cancer trial , Reggae music is what saved my soul during this hard time in my life. In 2013 after finding Stick's music, my husband and I realized that by going to see Stick Figure live in concert was our missing piece in helping us live our lives to the fullest. What Scott's music provides us with is a special gift of Love. A sense and feeling and a sense of a family connection. Not only is Scott's music just what our soul needs, it provides what our bodies needs. It allows us to escape and feel free, it creates beauty within the masses and you can feel positive vibes uplifting your soul. Stick's music bonds people like I've never seen before, it truly is a beautiful thing. His music has helped me and my husband so much and has guided us in living more positive, inspiring, and fun filled lives. His music truly is a Blessing!
I would love to be entered into this amazing contest to see Stick at Bonnaroo, levitate festival and root fire in the park. I would love to win these for my husband, Jason. He was my rock through my hard times and did anything and everything for me, as he still does today. He encourages me and pushes me to go to shows even if he can't attend. I couldn't imagine my life without him and when we are together at stick shows, it is the happiest times of our life. Stick figure music is a daily inspiration to me and I cannot go a day without it. To be able to win these for my husband, would be a way that I could pay him back for all the small and big things that he has done for me over the years and especially while I was sick. It would allow me to say to him Thank You for everything you've given and done for me, and still doing, while experiencing these festivals together. We love to travel and see stick wherever and whenever we can, and we greatly appreciate the opportunity for this contest.
Stick Family for Life
Much love ~ Christie ❤️💛💚🎶

I’ve always love the simple romantic compositions of Satie that felt pure and uncomplicated. Later recognised as the father of minimalist and repetitive music, Satie was considered experimental in his time and probably also a bit guai lan. —
He composed themes to be repeated 840 times, designed ballets with set by Picasso, formed a religion, was scorned by his peers as being a technician in music, his grievances taking on “degrading” gigs (aka pay the bill) and coined “furniture music” which was meant to be ignore aka BGM. It’s his obscure sense of humour that carried through his works. If you gotta be weird, might as well have a good laugh right?

And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. .
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.”
.
Celebrating two years of marriage with my boo and reflecting on this reading from our wedding 💖 Love is not possession, nor does it keep one from pursuing their own path. It embraces all that we are, encourages who we want to be, and is the most powerful force.
.
I’ve learned that love teaches us to strive to be our best selves, and as grateful as I am for all the forms in which I’ve experienced love, today I’m especially grateful for this love with you- you are patient, kind, ridiculous, driven, smart as hell, hilarious and I adore doing life with you. Thank you for all your thoughtful and weird #af gifts, but mostly thank you for being you and choosing to be my life partner.
.
I’m feeling all the feels, and still forever in awe by what has thus far been one of the best and most beautiful days of our lives. It’s all because of every loved one near and far who was there to support and cheer us on.✨💜

Look, I know I ain't been myself lately
I've been feelin' like someone else lately
It's prolly this empty Colt 45 that's numbing the pain inside
'Cause truthfully I ain't felt lately
I'm still a sinner, I'm losing myself, I need a sign
I needed space, I needed love, I needed time
And I never understood how you could treat me so heartless
Until I realized that you just needed mine
That's what I mean by "loving you never helps"
'Cause I just can't decide between loving you or myself
I just pushed away cause I drew a line and you crossed it
Crossing out my exes and ex-ing out all my loses, I know
What it's like to lose somebody you love
And I know what it's like to lose yourself to the drugs
And I know what it's like to have to let go of someone
'Cause they hurt you so bad that you're not the person you was
They won't ever feel what I feel
In a world so fake I just need something that's real
I've been dying to live, the devil's shooting to kill
I just can't help but wonder if you think of me still
See, I've been losing my mind
I've been losing everybody I believed in
Anxiety is suffocating me, I'm barely breathing
I'm coping with the pain
Hoping that the rain just stops cause it reminds me of the day you said you leaving
We always seem to run from those that love us the most
And we never open up because we scared to get close
We running from the past and we numb ourselves hoping that it lasts
'Cause you left me when I needed you most
I said we always seem to run from those that love us the most
And never open up because we scared to get close
We running from the past and we numb ourselves hoping that it lasts, we just hoping that it lasts. #vinnyramone #music #heartfelt #malesingers #rnbsinger #art #phora

Once I got no record deal, I left LA. Knew if I wanted to survive, I was gonna have to double down on self belief. I know I can pull it off, what I didn’t know is it would cause this massive vain in my forehead. Back in college, MC was my way of saying let’s come together and play some music and talk and chill and laugh. I mean, what’s better than that. Music helps a playa out so much, I figured it might help y’all out too. I saw how it connected people, not just for entertainment but to gain strength from one another. Real strength. I thought, if I’m going back home, again, no record deal (don’t need one now, just money) let’s keep it original. I’ve never seen anything bring people together like music can. Create music. Everybody. More of it. I hope MC can in some way bring folks together online and off for that same goal.. strengthen us. Our faith. Our individualism. And have some fun too. And I’m Ready to release more new music now with you guys. Ya’ll ready!??!!!! I can’t wait for you guys to hear this new music 🎶Coming soon. I’m what the game’s been missin. 🤫☺️ I miss you too. Let’s continue this journey of love together ❤️🌿 #CLASSIKLEVINE #CLASSIKWORLD

On this exact day last year, I made a post about missing opportunities in 2016 and how I wasn’t going to let that happen in 2017... And my, did I surprise myself.
This year I decided not to let anything slip and push myself out of my comfort zone into things I’ve never done before.
I competed and got a lot further than I expected in a number of music competitions, played one of my dream roles in a school musical, started a youtube channel, organised a visit to a music university, did some open mics/gigs here and there, auditioned for a community theatre show and got a sub-main, and so many more music and acting things in between... There were so many things I did this year for the first time, and I can surely say it won’t be the last time I’ll be doing them.
With all my ups this year, there have also been many downs. I suffered a lot of heartbreak for a multitude of reasons. From family, to deaths, to relationships, to school, there were countless of situations that could easily hold me back. However, I learnt to wipe away my tears and keep moving forward every step of the way. Letting go of grudges and not moping over the past brought me so many opportunities and brought so many new people into my life.
For anyone who has stuck through with me, through my laughs and through some tears this year, thank you, because when I thought I had no one, you were there ♡
My plan for next year is to keep pushing myself in positive ways. I hope to achieve more things, write more songs, perform at more places, and continue to pursue doing what I love most. I’m very happy to say that I don’t regret taking every opportunity given to me this year, and I aim to keep it that way for the years to come.
Without music in my life, I would not know where I’d be or who I’d be... Thank you so so so much for all the love and support so far along my journey, I’m so excited to see what comes next! - p xx

Who are you: EVA GARDENER•bassist & proud daughter, sister + auntie! WHAT IS YOUR FAV SNACK/SHOW/SONG: popcorn/family guy/ tough one but 2 that come to mind are “while my guitar gently weeps” (Beatles) + “the wind cries Mary” (Jimi Hendrix) WHY DO YOU PLAY: I love connecting with people through music-it’s one of the most powerful forms of communication.

As I see people starting to reflect on 2018, and begin talks of 2019, I found it an opportune time to check in with all of you and let you in to a few new developments in my life.
Let me start by saying that 2018 has easily been the biggest and best year for me as a professional artist, and as a piece in the puzzle of the music industry. I played a few festivals, performed in almost a dozen new states, went on my first “tour”, grew Dubday NYC to even new heights, released some of my best music (and released through labels for the first time), collaborated with some of my favorite artists and amazing friends, opened for some legends I’ve always looked up to, and on and on. It’s been an inspiring, tiring, overwhelming, whirlwind experience to say the least, and I’m super proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish this year.
That being said, things aren’t entirely “well” in Wade’s World. It would seem that I’ve lost my way - fallen out of touch and out of focus - and subsequently, haven’t entirely felt like “me” for some time now. I’ve been stuck in a rut, and those of you who have been near to me these past few months have seen that, felt that, and may have even been affected by that - and for that I am sorry. I bit off a little more than I could chew this year, and it’s affected my health more than anything.
If you know me, you know I love to party, and that I can keep up with the champs week after week (after week). But, it’s time that I start to enjoy the way I celebrate life a little more mindfully and carefully. I think it’s important to let my friends, and even the void of the internet, know my intentions as a means of solidifying my delivery on my new changes. Moving in to 2019, I’m going to begin a journey of sobriety. Among other things, this will also include quitting drinking alcohol until at least the summertime, at which time I’ll begin to ween back special occasion drinks here and there as I see fit (but I will not ever be resorting back to “drinks after work” or “drinks before bed” types of habits - those are getting kicked for good). You may still see me indulging in THC (when and where it’s legal, of COURSE) on my own accord, and that’s ok.

I first heard Mumford & Sons when I was 18 and in my last year if highschool and ready to discover myself. I found a lot of bad things along the way, but a lot of good too. I met a lot of good people that I didn't give their due and loved badly or too much. I've cried to this music and I laughed to this music and I realised I'm gay to this music. I cried about being lonely and I cried about being in love and I cried about existing or worrying I don't exist. I've been so depressed I couldn't listen to this music at all. But somewhere along the way I discovered them again and maybe a part of myself, too. I'm excited to have it back, even if I don't quite know what it is yet, or who I am. I'm excited because they were there and still are and I cried again tonight for two hours and left feeling alive.

So I've had some personal setbacks in my music creation process, but I'm back from the dead and had to make some difficult decisions. When I started making this music I knew from the beginning that I wanted to do it the right way. I wanted to provide something that I wouldn't look back on in years to come and think "hey, I could have done better." So I decided to start this process over again, and I think it's the best decision I've ever made. I've decided to make a full-length album. Nine songs. Not just an EP, but a cohesive group of work that can tell the story I haven't had the guts to tell my whole life. One that hopefully won't be lost or forgotten along the way. I've had goosebumps every single day since I started this process, and I wanted to apologize for the long delay. Everyone who sends me messages of encouragement or asks to hear my stuff, you are what keeps me going. I finally have this feeling that I can't get rid of, and it's a magical one. To everyone's dismay this is not a whole song, but a teaser of the album single "Offerings." I'm proud. I'm nervous. But I'm going to do it to the best of my ability. I love each and every one of you. Sooooo without further ado.......

'Where are you from?

Well I've been from all over really. Born in Belfast, moved to a small village called crumlin when I was 7 with my mum and my sister, then moved to Lisburn for a week when I was 15, before the UVF threw out the "Catholics in the area" at 4am with baseball bats and iron pipes. The family then relocated to Antrim, but I've been lucky enough to call Ballycastle and even Hawaii home since.
Where are you going?
Well I'd love to one day find myself back in Hawaii and be reunited with a distant love. I'd to see the world with her, more of Europe, Thailand, Japan, Iceland, New Zealand... My two biggest passions are music and youth work, and one day I'd love to be able to create my own independent youth work organisation. It would teach young people the discipline to learn instruments, and then express themselves through songwriting recording and performance. There's been a big tie between Northern Irish music and self expression, and hopefully that can continue for years to come.' #peopleinpassing #Belfast #NI #potd #Ireland

One of the highlights for me was obviously the release of the Beat Diaries album. It really came out as I hoped it would. Thanks again to @Vinyl_Digital for the support! And much love to anyone who copped it!
I‘ve played so many live shows as never before in one year. In Switzerland as well as all over Europe! Although I rather sit at home, crafting loops on my machines, I really enjoy performing and I‘m looking forward to performing in 2019. But first: many thanks to all the promoters that booked me this past year!
Promoters! Bookers! Holla at me for 2019, namean?!
.
@hausundbaum continued to grow: I had the privilege of releasing 5 projects this year, 3 of them on vinyl, 1 tape, 2 digital. If I would not be so infuriatingly slow, there could have been more! Sorry.. Much love to @invhide, @funkynotes, Low Profile, @vandolizm87, Corc & @chiefrugged! Thank you for your trust & patience!
For these projects I‘ve had the pleasure of collaborating with great people! Many thanks to Studio SIRUP & @FabianIseli for the visual contributions, to @CrazeeBo & @StaubAudio for your great work mixing & mastering the music!
Unfortunately, not all projects that were planned, made it this year. Some of them have been pushed to 2019, some did eventually find another way to be released, some are still sitting on the shelve. It pains me to not see projects through. For any grief or inconvenience I‘ve caused, I would like to apologize if I have not so far.
The same goes for my booking agent endeavors: mostly it has been unrewarding & time consuming work & I‘ve been not as efficient & successful as I‘ve aspired to be. If I‘ve let anyone down, I‘m truly sorry bout that.

I remember that day fondly. I creeped your Snapchat the whole day, wondering what you’re doing and where in Omaha you’re at. I wanted to be first one to walk in, when the doors opened. When waiting. I had the courage to send a poem I’ve written about a guy, who I was falling in love with. Your music and writing inspires me tremendously! I felt like it was a sign to send it to him because I’m finally going to see you. The person who inspires me with my writings. I did had a blast dancing and singing along with you! I’m still cringing about me fucking up the lyrics to The Suburbs. I was drinking, with stage fright and I was star struck 😂 but I’ll always cherish that memory. I’ve actually had this tattoo for several months. I’ve been too scared to show you. But now I have courage to share it with you 💖 I was hoping to make it to your SF show. To show you in person. Sadly that didn’t happen.
I adore your handwriting, your kooky heart. I like the fact that its on my right wrist, the hand I write with. Everything about you, I love. Looking forward to new music and possibly more tour dates!

. Consistency has always been a challenge for me, because I’m an artist of many facets. So it’s easy to tap into other avenues or switch gears, especially because I just love creating. Funny thing is I’ve never taken music seriously but it’s been the one things I’ve never had to beg for support in. I’ve declined more opportunities in music than anything. Probably because of my own insecurities. I also haven’t really pursued it because I get frustrated with the culture and where hip hop is now. Like where are the people that actually care about the music? ...I also hate that hip hop plays female MCs against each other or always has to compare this one and that one.... there is room for us both. Anyway I digressed, I am doing music again because I love it. Every female rapper out here is not a stripper and nor do we all have to have our clothes off and talk about bitches and hoes and niggaz. If that’s what you like I’m not knocking you at all, we probably all have a little ratchetness that needs a soundtrack lol. I’m here for another demographic and I know everybody ain’t with that either. It’s all love. Those that rock with me and music, I appreciate you more than you know. I have some insecurities but I’m just finally facing some fears and pushing past them. That’s why you see more music post from me lately... challenging myself to stay consistent so hold me accountable. Much love. .

SO I GOT A TATTOO (a big one).
I’ve waited a long time to get a tattoo as visible as this, but 1. I’ve been following this tattoo artist @pmtattoos for a long time now and his books were finally opened. 2. I wanted a permanent reminder of the type of life I want to live. Who I am and where I’m going. 3. I never want to end up in an environment that wouldn’t allow me to be myself.

The tattoo is a stylized quill with a treble clef as the tip. The treble clef is where the melody is played in music. It’s the leader of the story. In the feathers of the quill are the four original synthesizer waveforms (the instrument that made me want to pursue music) SINE, SQUARE, TRIANGLE, & SAW. There’s all sorts of other things mixed in through Uncle Phil’s decorative and beautiful style (like a Moon for my Late Night Feelers). I’m a writer, I’m a storyteller, and this is my reminder. I’m so happy with how it turned out. Go show @pmtattoos and @oldcrowtattoo some love for me! If you’re ever in Oakland, CA say hello! ✨
Thanks for all the love and messages about the tattoo 💙💖

What’s a tattoo you want to get?
Do you have any?

I love you Deep Feeling Magic Beings
Love,
Bluestar

Today I celebrate the release of my latest art project: MUSIC.
Now let me be clear...
I’m not a musician. I’m just an artist... that’s all.
I’ve made art you can watch. I’ve made art you can laugh at. I’ve made art you can read. I’ve made art you can observe. And now, 25 years in the making, I’ve made art you can hear.
Music has accidentally become my truth.
To celebrate my birthday with me, it would mean the world if y’all could just listen and (hopefully) enjoy my work... Hate it, love it, observe it, share it... Just know, this songs marks the beginning of something much bigger than me...🕳🐇 So I thank you.

Nightclubs are the social gathering and breeding grounds for those who have similar taste in music & for those who choose to share there space with likely others of all walks of life.
The end/time of a beautiful space in NYC has come, I’ve had many great if not incredible moments I will cherish for the rest of my life.
I only attached a few pics because I have a lot of video instead, most of these photos are dated but trust I have tons more.
Some of them show spectacular moments and events by @defectedrecords @simondunmore1 , Sam, Gavin, Shovell on drums when they invaded NYC, @forwarddisco @seancormacnyc @chilidavisnyc with myself & @jojoflores , the debut of @willreelsoul at #rootsnyc alongside @louievega Reelsoul the same night also played with me LIVE on keyboards as we formed a band the same night to debut my album “Welcome Home”
Which became many many more memorable events in this space.
The space included some amazing workers @tocanycvintage THANK YOU for your grace and ❤️ and to your hubby as well for the same love and respect he always has shown.
#Marlon wish I knew your IG handle but something tells me someone will relay this message to ya! Love ya big dog! You all been true professionals throughout and I knew Things would be OK when I saw you Guys every time I enter the building ✊🏼🙏🏼.

16 years ago today I become a mom. Your mom. Two kids who barely knew who we were held a whole new life in our arms. We had no experience with the road that was ahead. We had no idea we could love someone so intensely. No idea that parenting was both romantically idealistic at times and grippingly, sometimes depressingly hard at others. We had no idea how fast the pages would turn and the years would pass, no matter how many people reminded us of it. But we stepped out in faith trusting, even without knowing it at the time, that grace would cover our catastrophes and love would alway lead us back to Him when we faltered.⁣

Happy 16th birthday, AJ. I love you. I love that you’ve brought your creativity clothed in music into ever corner of our lives. I love that you’ve cradled 7 siblings in a way that even grown men I’ve met can’t replicate. I love that I get to see you grow and change and struggle and stay the course. Even when it’s tough. Because being a teenager today ain’t easy. I love you. Always have. Always will. And you’ll always be my baby, no matter how many inches you grow past the top of my own head!

It’s so fascinating witnessing the transition from training to working professionally. For me it meant losing my trust in my abilities starting doubting myself more and more because working 8 shows a week there’s no time for classes. Now I feel much more comfortable trusting the process, trusting that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. And This is nothing but love for music, love for dance. Galen told me to show how much I love dance in this freestyle. It’s a feeling. 💗 @thegalenhooksmethod #immersion #artistdevelopment #newyork #freestyle #feels #moment *i do not own the rights to this music. For personal use only* #dance #heels #sabrinaclaudio

My love for music has come to a point where I’ve had to decide which way to go.
You see, I’ve spent the last few years traveling the world, performing, partying, making music - friends & haters
But I got lost on its way. I forgot about what matters to me, so.. In deep regret I’m announcing the end of my career as a performing artist.

I fully acknowledge and I am eternally grateful that I was living a „dream life“, supporting myself through music production and performance, DJ’ing has literally shown me the world. However, at the same time - the lifestyle is fraught with mental health pitfalls. Extreme sleep deprivation, difficulty maintaining relationships, increased social media pressures, over-saturation of the market, long periods of isolation, and constant career instability.

I have been blessed with a hard working team at Headliner Entertainment, Wishlist Agency & Dirty Workz - which always looked after me, tried to help me & supported me.
I’d like to thank them for all the work and support over the past years, it has been a wild ride.

And of course a big thanks to YOU - all my fan’s that came out to my performances, whether it was clubs - festivals - events. It didn’t matter what weather or location, you guys kept showing up and I am forever grateful for your support.

However I am not gonna let go of music production, I will continue to produce and release music via dirty workz and I hope you will still find the joy in this, as a rather famous song of mine said „find the joy in music, find the joy in each other“

I’m gonna continue to perform on all agreed shows until December 9th!

Thank you everyone. ❤️

Happy Aloha Sunday Everyone! Do me a favor and Count your blessings today and everyday...you know someone once told me a while ago that if I continue to sing the way I do, I won't go far in life....as bitter as I was with this person and their remarks I took it in as a way to push harder and to also prove that person wrong...I know I won't and can't please everyone but music and performing is my passion and I've worked hard at it since day one, and I continue to work hard and do better. This passion for music and my culture has taken me around the world and to places I've dreamed of and I know it's the works and blessings from Ke akua. I won't be able to do what I do with out the support and love of my loving wife and family mahalo mahalo mahalo big time. I am far from where I want to be and I have lots to learn and to grow. I'm very grateful and thankful for the life I was given and it's a message to all of you to never let anyone tell your worth, to always put akua first, believe in yourself and continue to work hard at what you love to do and your goals and dreams will come true.... Love you all! 😘🤗🤙🏽

And let me tell you that THIS is the reason.
Even if you're not a fan, i encourage you to listen to his speech. This is about power we have to make things happen, we, THE YOUTH.
I love it when artist use their fame for the right purposes and make the best of it. And the fact that he emphasized the importance of embracingthe mistakes you've made in the past instead of ignoring them or hating yourself for making them is so crucial. Too many of us hate ourselves for the mistakes instead of looking at them as lessons that let us grow as human beings.
What a touching, heartfel yet powerful and relatable speech in his self-taught second language (he's not a native english speaker). Once again i'm left speechless.

BTS isnt just some "pretty korean boys who dance and wearing make up and weird clothes", they are a life savior for some people. They make music with the intent to protect and support young people through their music. Listen to their lyric since their debut and you'll hear how they're consistenly voicing out the struggle of youth in their lyric. Really, they have changed the life of millions for the better. There isnt enough words to express the pride, love and admiration i have for them. And being invited to make a speech in UN General Assembly, in front of all those smart and empowering people, this is the greatest things that they've achieved so far, more than all the awards they've got.
Stanning BTS was and is honestly the best decision I've ever made. Couldn't be more proud of them. Thankyou for telling your story, Kim Namjoon. Thankyou BTS.

I’ve never lost a parent, or a lover but I will never forget the day you died for the rest of my life. I remember getting the news that you had passed and it connected with my heart. I was crushed. Not only was I one of your biggest fans but I was truly in love with your music. I said to myself that even if we never met, I wanted a woman in my life just like you. I am pained that we will never get to connect now that music ended up being my career path. But you should know, we all listen to you everyday and we remain inspired and moved by all that you’ve given the world. I hope I make the right life choices so I can end up in heaven where I know you rest your head. I’ll continue to make music in your honor until the day we finally meet. Drink’s on me!

Love you always and forever,
Druskii Dru

So much has happened in the last 24 months to change my life - it almost feels like a lifetime ago. I’m so proud of the songs on this record. I poured myself into them and agonized over every detail in a way I’d never done. Listening back now I can hear every session and every late night all wrapped into those recordings. So I just wanted to take this chance to thank everyone who’s listened to it, who found me because of it, who’s stuck with me through it, and who’s still down to see what I’m going to do next. I wouldn’t be here without you and I feel incredibly lucky to have fans who are so down to take the journey alongside me.

I suppose that obviously begs the question of “Josh where the fuck is new Goldroom music?!?” 2017 was a weird year, mostly thanks to a broken neck suffered in Mexico in the heat of summer. I’ve been working and changing and taking musical chances that have both invigorated and scared me. I’ve written music that I’m incredibly stoked about and taken steps in like 12 different directions. I can promise that I’ve finished a bunch of music and that you’ll get to start hearing it soon. The new stuff is so exciting to me and I think it really is a true return to me at my core. I’ll never stop writing songs and making music guys. Never stop spreading love 💛

If you don't know what photobashing is, it's basically a "collage" of pictures merged together to create an original set piece by messing around with the original values and doing a lot of painting. For example, concept artists regularly do this to convey ideas quick and meet deadlines. That being said, photobashing really shouldn't detract from the artwork's/artist's value (except for me, my value was lost when I first lay a pencil.)

Aight, so, the real reason I made this in the first place was cuz I've been watching Vinesauce play Red Dead Redemption 2 and I thought, "Gee, I haven't made art for Vinny in 2 years. Oh dang, Red Dead 2 looks real good and hey Binyot playing it les do it and practice photobashing." Oh boy, hhhhhhhh I was almost in tears to hear what he said about my art aaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAA 19 years of life accumulated to that little moment felt super good. I've never felt so good about my art. It warmed my shitty little heart. Imma sleep real well tonight for sure. Till then~ @vine_sauce love the streams, love the music, and I love the stanky memes. idc if he don read this i completely understand gn
