What I’m Doin Now
It’s been quite a month for me since the last time I did some blogging. The production album is coming along great! I’m still on schedule for a fall release date. It’s gonna be hot. I can’t wait!! I’m shooting another YouTube production video of a new song. I should have it uploaded in a few days. Also, I’m chatting with the management of Andrew DeBarge about doing a song for his next release. This kid is gonna be a star. Check him out.
I was down in Louisiana for the Jazz Festival back in late April. (had an awesome time!) This was only a few days into the oil spill. Back then it was headline news but not like it is now. First Katrina, now BP! This must be cleaned up NOW!
Anyhow, the festival was crazy fun. The bands were all tight and performed their butt’s off! The food was second to none and the most memorable thing that sticks out, is the hospitality of the local people. It is truly a family atmosphere down there. They made me feel like I was part of their family. That’s why I feel absolutely horrible about what’s happening to them. They do not deserve this! Twice in a single generation, this seems well beyond unfair!
If you read my ramblings from before, I mentioned that I was working on a couple of songs for the film entitled, Tech Support due to be released later this year written by Mike Bara. http://www.mikebara.com Well, the first song is complete. It’s actually a remix of my song, She Got The. In the remix I used a loop from the track I’m in Love by Evelyn Champagne King. The track is sick!!! Check it out on the music page! It features my boys Mr. IL & Hona from Chi-town, big shout out to them!
Because, I’m trying to go about using the loop legally, there’s been a lot of paper work. . . . (nightmare!) Long story short, I need permission from the original writer of the song before it’s published. Anybody out there remember Kashif? Producer extraordinaire from the 80′s and 90′s. Click here!
My research lead me to Kashif himself and I have a meeting with him this week. How sweet is that!! (he better give me permission!!)
Hmmm, what else? Oh yeah the movie. How crazy is this? Not only will I have a couple of songs in the movie, I will have a small role too! More details on that later. Grammys, Oscars, here I come!
And lastly but definately not least, my website will be morphing into something even nicer! My webdesigner
has all these great ideas. What she doesn’t realize is every time she’s suggests something new, I love it and I wanna use it. So she’ll probably never be done working on it. (gotta love her!) Anyway, its going to be redone very soon. You’re gonna love it. I promise.
Ok. that’s it for me. What about you?? Got something going on? Drop me a note and tell me all about it!
Holla back. . .
