Sharing the Love

I just wanna take a moment to thank you for your support, too often I see "artists" (many who's talent is mediocre at best) that totally neglect the importance of you, the listener. At the same time I have had the privledge of personally meeting and in some instances working with some of the greatest and most immensely talented artists from underground to majors with legendary reputations and the most noteworthy are for the most part also the most humble and easygoing, so what is it about these minimally talented artists that gives them the audacity to act like some type of hot shot and undermine the very people responsible for their success? I have a theory but that's another story for another time. So let me just say that I am truly humbled by those of you who enjoy my music, ride to it and share with others. And if ever wanna share any feedback, critique or just have a question you would like to ask me I welcome it wholeheartedly and hope to hear from you soon!

Wishing you Peace, Love and continuous blessings, Diallo

Thank you all

Thanks to all the fans and artist community on Reverbnation for helping to make this an eventful year for myself and Herbal eX Records. Although I have spent much of the year recording and producing projects for myself and various others, I have also managed to recieve consistent bookings throughout the year as well which is a wonderful thing. You all have also kept me at the top of the local charts for yet another year even keeping me at #1 for several months and for that I am grateful.

Although I have not released my new album as planned I have recorded about 4 times more material than I expected to and it is all great music so I didn't wanna just rush and throw it out there this time but you can definately look forward to a timely release in the 1st quarter of 2011 so stay tuned for that.

I also want you to know that my internet access has been very limited since mi-summer so if you have messaged me through Reverbnation and I have not respoded yet, don't worry I will get to it as soon as it becomes feasible, Once again thanks for the love and support and incase this is my last blog of the year then I say to you have a safe and Happy New Year. Peace and Love -Diallo

#1 on Reverbnation Charts!

I'd like to thank you all for the continued support. Thanks to you I have been #1 on the Reverbnation charts for Central Va for over 2 months now and been getting some good quality feedback from various Dj's,Fans,Venues and my fellow Reverbnation members.

I encourage you to keep it coming, and if you are interested in working with me, aither as a vocal collaboration, you need some quality production or just studio time, get with me. I look forward to hearing from you all.



New Studio Location!

I am glad to announce the arrival of the new studio, location is 3113 W Marshall St suite 204,just one block northwest of the Comfort Inn Midtown in Richmond, Va. Schedule your time ASAP because pretty soon the bookings will be crazy. Hope to see you there.

Welcome Back!

Yea I know it's been a while since my last Reverbnation Blog, just noticed it's actually been almost a year and a half! Well I've been pretty busy with production projects and preparing new releases for clients,ended my affiliation with the otherstudio/label I was working with and and have been freelance engineering again, which has given me time to get back focused on my solo efforts and band projects. Newest releases from Herbal eX Records include Afi Makalani's "Access to my soul", CAl Pacino's "Road to Respect" (actually released back in March 2008 but this is the 1st mention in my Reverbnation Blog), the soon to be released "The Herb-N-Music Experience V.2 (Going Green)", and my current Funk Record "Slide" feat Afi Makalani, MahAgony and Keith "Kee Wee" White as well as more up-coming projects by the aforementioned artists along with Jeff Session Cap Boyz and others. So stay tuned in 2010 cause we have a lot more good stuff where that came from along with even more good stuff from some unexpected places.

Peace and Love in 2010,
