I have been swept away like a lose hanging leaf in a thunderstorm only to be carried away into a new direction. I'm very excited about my future endeavors. Iv been so gracious and patient because hard work will eventually pay off. When I say hard work I'm not speaking of the writing nor the singing aspect of it though that takes just as much training and practice, or even the social media accounts I have to maintain.
This kind of hard work is often over looked by us artist. I own Supersonic Sound Records. I was put into a position where as a Label owner, I must understand the movements of audience, the traffic of social medias. A real analysis. Just because we are artist doesn't mean we should forget about the business side of our talent. In fact that is the one tool you need to be taken serious. If success is what you want you must break it down to what measures, to what degree, and how will you get there. I wish everyone the best out here in this free and independent market. Its safe to say the Labels are no longer in our way of global success.
Also, Beware of the music you put out. I'm surprised Demi Lavato came out with a Song titled "Firestarter" March 2013 well after my song , "Firestarter" was release August 2012. All the opportunities we submit to... we put ourselves out there. Likewise on youtube and Facebook we are open like window. Theres just no other way. Exposure is the motive. Every business has risks. For us talented artist thats one of them.
Thank you for everyone that has bought my singles, shared a link, subscribed to my app, left a comment, you are the reason my numbers climb!
Lets be passionate, Lets be natural, and Lets really get to know ourselves in this creative world! Life is Delicious, Enjoy! -Ni
Ni'Ela Rocks Hard Rock Cafe Rising Star Competition. The heat is on. Not only is it on, its hot! I'm a bit, to say the least, nervous however. This is my first professional show. For many it isn't a big deal. Rocking out in a four piece or more band seems like an advantage I don't or do have. Its pretty open that this point.Hard Rock Cafe Rising Star is exactly what this competition is about rising to the top and along with fan engagement, via votes, and, performance with your ability to market and promote your brand. Finalist move to a round where he/she then performs in London! How about that!? There are challenges too. If you are a band member or artist you must know its difficult to reach an audience who barely knows you or your music; so you got to hustle just like we did to get those votes that allowed us this opportunity!
I'm the only Solo act that will be performing for the Hard Rock Cafe Rising star competition; Electronic Dance Music princess Ni'Ela Rocks! Nonetheless I'm thrilled to have this chance! The rules stated I cannot have certain props or anything, no back up dancers etc. So don't expect to see an EDM tricked out stage. Innovation has not abandoned me, however, there are a few things up my sleeve. :-P In Heign sight its a love! Energy is something that I will need to take with me to the Hard Rock Cafe! Wish me well, wish me fun, and wish me high spirits! Hard Rock Cafe Rising Star Competition Houston, Tx 2013! March 21st 9pm Ni'Ela Rocks!
People ask me all the time what is EDM? Well for awhile I had no idea either, until my manger kept telling me about these EDM forums and sites, I had to pop the same question. As long as I've known House, Electronica, Trance, these terms always had their own genre, or either it would be listed as a fusion.
I want to know the name of the guy who decided to add all the sub genres into one genre. Its easier for people to understand since we have been groomed since birth to be place in a box! A large category if you will.
I'm not hating, hey if it makes things easier for you then fine. So the answer to this madness is the acronym EDM is... Electronic Dance Music.
"Music is My Rebellion" My journey; unlocking truths about myself, in hopes that others follow the boundless idea of living in the present and being in-tune.
If you want to stay on the outside and be the systematic, be my guest. What I believe in most are afraid of. Iv stepped into my realm and created a fearless phenomena!
The sublime feeling of inspiring you out of your captive souls, is fuel to my rebellion!!! For My Rebels JUST BELIEVE! -Ni'Ela Rocks
Owner Allen Henson, Photographer born in Houston Texas who is from Los Angeles, allowed me to don this cool jacket for my, "Music is My Rebellion" photo shoot. Below is a brief yet historical view into where the coat came from, its meaning, and, use. You can observe the confidence and edge I felt from the energy that spiraled into my world with each snap shot! Allen Henson provided the following details;
JACKET, COLD WEATHER, (HIGH TEMPERATURE RESISTANT) STOCK NO.: 8415-01-074-9423
Originally fielded in the 1980's this US Army Pilot Flight Jacket was issued to me in 2004 by the 22nd Infantry Regiment. It, with me, has served two tours in Iraq; 05-06 & 08-09.
Although Iraq is thought of as an arid and hot country, the nights and especially the winters are remarkably cold. A jacket to an infantryman is a comfort that has no real definition. The simple things priceless; we sleep in place, eat standing, and are on the move often. Only a jacket, but a precious and irreplaceable piece of equipment.
