Shoutout to Gypsy Soul Entertainment for including me in their Aural Advocacy Campaign to celebrate Black Music Month. Please support this project by spreading the word. They will be featuring an artist each day this month. Follow their Tumblr & Instagram to follow along, and be introduced to talented black musicians!
A few weeks ago I did an interview with Salim Adofo, one of the leaders of the National Black United Front, a community organization that helps feed, educate, organize, and uplift Black people. We discussed commercialism, movement music, and my education. He also showed my video “Too Much” and a live performance of my song “Pisces.”
Check it out. When he asked if I was interested in commercial success, what did you expect me to say?
This was pretty cool. Watching yourself on TV is always a little surreal.
I appeared on the show Metro Magazine hosted by Bonnie McDaniel. It was a truly enjoyable interview experience. She’s so personable and was very easy to talk to. We discussed my upbringing, my training, lessons I learned from my parents, and the recent uprising in Baltimore. I also sang a little bit of “Black Butterfly” (you know that’s one of my favorites!).
Here’s a few pictures and clips I recorded while watching it on my TV. Watch a short video clip here >>>> Singing Black Butterfly
Hoping to do many more interviews soon! I do like talking lol
