Progress Report

Hey guys!  I know I've been ghost for moment, but it's been for good reason.  Sometimes you have to go into a seclusion in order to get some things done.  With that being said, lots of steps and strides have been made on the album.  Had some hiccups here and there, nothing to cry over though...just refining and polishing the diamond in the rough.  You don't get it right until you get it right, and that takes time.  I want to bring you nothing but my best because anything a smidgeon less than that is half-assed (and I don't do half-assed lol).  Can't wait for you guys to hear the end results. 

In the meantime, I want to share with you a little sampling of my venture with Sounds Familiar Records.  These cats are something special and I want you to really see what it's all about.  More videos will be posted at a later date - so stay tuned!!

Sounds Familiar/New Single!!

Wheeew!  I've finally found a moment to catch my breath and give you an update on all of the latest news.  For starters, the EP has been pushed back.  Instead, I will be releasing a single entitled "Truly Deeply Madly" on Sept. 28th on iTunes and  I am really geeked about it (does anyone say that word nowadays?).  Click on the media widget to the right of this page so you can have a listen.  Also, I proudly announce that I am officially a part of the Sounds Familiar Records family.  The goal of SFR is to shine light on artists of the Southeast and promote the creation and distribution of GOOD music, plain and simple.  Words cannot explain how enthused I am to rub elbows with such talented individuals.  To learn more about SFR, please visit

Opening For RES!!!!

Okay, I think I've held the suspense long enough.  A few weeks ago I posted a Res video.  The reason why is because on Thursday, September 30th, I will be opening for her at Mo' Betta Soul: Unplugged in Columbia, SC!!  If you don't know who Res is, shame on you!  Just kidding.  She was previously signed to MCA Records, where she churned out hits such as "Golden Boys" and "They Say Vision".  Now she's striking a chord on her own as an independent artist and showing people that Black Girls truly do Rock!  Speaking of, you can purchase her new album "Black.Girls.Rock!" on iTunes.

I hope to see you guys at the show.  It's going to be a beautiful experience ;o)

Hey Fam!  This is going to be a short and sweet one.  I am a member of Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity and also helped to charter the Kappa Delta Chapter at my alma mater, Clark Atlanta University.  Through this organization, I've come to meet and respect many exceptionally gifted women in music.  Case in point, one of the young ladies that pledged under me, Ms. Jamie Cooley, is a budding producer with a style all her own...and I truly dig it.  I was moved to share a little bit of her work with you guys.  ARTISTS:  If you would like to work with Ms. Cooley, please shoot me an email and we can make it happen.  Let's get it!!

What's In A Name?--OR--A Blessing To Be A Blessing

Good day to all!  Glad that I've been blessed to bring you another blog entry.  Speaking of blessings...

Creative Silence

I couldn't let another day go by without giving you a little teaser of a photo shoot I did with Raleigh's own Chris Charles of Creative Silence Photography (  In the last blog entry I spoke of many blessings pouring into my life...this was one of them.  The atmopshere during the shoot was magical.  You could tell there was something in the air.  All of that positive energy around us translated through the lens and onto the film.  But enough talking, I'll let you see for yourself ;o)

A Dose of My Own Medicine

Good day Family!  Last time we talked about how pruning leads to blooming.  Wellllll, since then I've undergone a major pruning campaign in my project.  There were people I had to separate myself from and other...what's the word....BS...that's it...other BS I had to free myself of because not only was it dragging the integrity of my project down, it was also dragging me down as a person.  Funny thing is, when I did let go of all that stuff, it seemed as if a supernatural power swept through and allowed the treasure box of my life to fly open with all sorts of blessings.  I've heard many wise individuals say before that God will release blessings into your life once you make the decision to let go of the things that are clearly not working in your best interest.  However, never in my life had I experienced such an occurrence, be it in my own life or seeing it through someone else's.  All I got to say is that the wise elders were RIGHT!  Although the original path of this musical journey has dramatically changed, it has changed for the better.  I'm moving forward like how I never imagined I could.  Talking about getting a dose of my own medicine!

Pruning Leads To Blooming/Love It & Leave It Alone

Ready, Set, GO!!!

Time is ticking and the race is on!!  Thankfully, the only person I'm racing against is myself; but that can actually be a bad thing.  For years I've been in a race towards the freedom of expression and self actualization.  But I must say, it's hard to win a race when you're too afraid to run.
