Where do I start? SOOOOO i wrote this long bio (BELOW) about this that & the other. You can read it if u like. After all the contemplation about how I should order this or say this & not that I just realized I aint got no more time to waste. I'm will ATTEMPT to keep it short & sweet & to the point.
I been doing this singing thing for a LONG while now & I have been procrastinating too LONG. I have featured on other peoples songs (I have collaborated with a few artists including Fif Nitty (R.I.P),LB, Ghetto GuiIlotine, Grand, Temujin, Kash, & Division/Bay Boy) but didnt want to become an artist fully& have all the spotlight on me.
I am no attention whore. I dont want or need cameras flashing in my face every minute. I want to songwrite for other artists & help come up with dance moves and ideas for the video & occasionally come out with my own album every now & then with songs that are close to my heart & that I dont want to sell. I dont want to be obligated to come up with an album every year or do a show when im not in the mood or dress a certain way or conform to something that is not me. So I had shyed away from going into the music for a while & did not pursue it to my fullest capabilities.
BUT NOW that I have finished a big goal of mine ( to obtain my degree) I can now focus more on my music. Everyone keeps asking me when are you gonna do your own thing & I kept telling them once I complete this one goal I can move on to the next. Now, I can focus more on pushing my musically talents further. Now I feel like I have somewhat of a crutch to lean on just in case this music thing doesnt work.
Previously, more people have had faith in my music than I have. Its time for me to have faith in myself. I used to b shy to sing in front of people all by myself, but I cant b shy anymore. I gotta shine like I know I can. I know I got some good, man GREAT, material & ideas to share & let others hear.I HAVE LET TOO MUCH TIME PASS BY. Years of holding in songs, ideas, material. NOW IM READY. Its NOW or NEVER
I do hope u enjoy what u hear. I have posted some videos on my youtube page of some live singing. I feel like I sing better live than on recorded tape sometimes. U know what they say ur your own worst critic. But let me know what ya think....
I love music. I love to sing. I love to dance. I also songwrite & want to get into choregraphing for videos. If it were up to me I wish I could just wake up everyday and MAKE MUSIC & DANCE ( as well as helping in the community n some kind of way).
I see music & dancing as a way of personal creative expression. Allowing u to release your thoughts & ideas in a beautiful & harmless way. I write about MANY different things. I dont sing about cars, money & stuff that I dont have. I sing about stuff that I have been through or what I have seen. Yes I do write love songs but I also have songs that have a message & true story in it. Not to say the music these days dont have that but I am saying alot of what is allowed on the radio is lacking a positive message & true mental stimulation.
But its funny how u only hear that "type" of music on certain radio stations....yeah I might ruffle some feathers with my outspokeness & cut to the chase style. I really dont hold back lyrically or in real life. I call it how I see it and I say it how I wanna whether its a freaky song, love song, or cheating song, or world issue song I covers it all and I keep it very real because that is me and I cant b no one else but me.
I've been singing for a while now, I started in church. I was in a group when i was 14 called "SistaHood " but my mom took me out because of my grades started slacking off. I became skeptical about going into the music because of alot of shady dealings that happen in it including how artist who work their behinds off & sell millions go bankrupt, it just turned me off but I still sung on other artists songs and at the age of 16 I got a beat and wrote my first song called "This is the time", but I had ended up losing the beat and the contact for the guy who made it so that is one of my MANY unfinished pieces of work.
I have a pile of songs that are ready to be finished. Some that are completed and I need a beat to. And some songs I need a co-writer to help me fill in some blanks and breakdowns. My work is surely a work in progress. But that key word is PROGRESS. I gotta stick to this because I have been half-assing it TOO LONG now. I need to let my words b heard. They are powerful. I feel it and I want YOU TO FEEL IT too.
So check me out & I hope u enjoy what u hear. GOD bless!!!
