Noni Rene / Blog


ReverbNATION! It's been a minute since I've blogged here ... I've done a bunch of shows, formed a backing band, released an EP (DOWNLOAD at www.nonirene.bandcamp.com), etc, ETC!!! To REALLY stay updated, you need to like my Facebook artist page! Also, when it comes to staying updated, I am redesigning my mailing list. I've been using the Reverbnation widget on my blogs for people to sign up to my mailing list ... I haven't even been able to access and utilize that mailing list due to the technicalities of the Reverbnation website and account set up. This is to say, if you are interested in being a part of my periodic newsletter, COMMENT on this blog post, or MESSAGE me!! I feel really bad having this inconvenience for the folks who have already taken the second to provide their email in the Reverbnation widget; but this way I can efficiently get the info you need to continue to support me as an artist. It's moments like this when I need to access the mailing list already established ... anywho ... hopefully folks see this ... Love. Peace. Music. #VillageMovement TVKNR

WHOA DERE!!! (This Past Week)

This past week, response from the public (likes, follows, adds, listens, views, etc) has REALLY picked up! For instance, I was kind of meandering in the 450s-500s for a while and now I hold a spot at 182!!!

THANK YOU to EVERYONE!! It really made my days brighter getting such an abundance of feedback and most was positive!!! I am truly grateful!

There is a lot in store and it will be available to you soon!! I'm working hard to make it happen!

Thank you for your support again and please SPREAD THE WORD!!

Love. Peace. Music. TheVillageKid, Noni R.

Hey guys! I was thinking to make a video, but I have very under-the-weather; PLUS, this is quicker... Just want to check in and let you all know what's going on with the #VillageMovement!!

First, you MUST follow me on Soundcloud! I don't upload all of my musical projects here because I want to keep my Reverbnation profile organized and straightforward, so new followers don't get turned off or confused by different genres I may dabble in, etc .. Speaking of which I started by changing my profile pic, but this account will be going under some construction soon and I'll let you know about that. Getting back to the point, I say you MUST follow me on Soundcloud because I have linked up with a rapper/producer, NishoSoul. At this point, we have collaborated a few times and refer to our collabs as "VillageSoul." Go to my Soundcloud page --- www.soundcloud.com/tvkp, FOLLOW me and LISTEN to those collabs. Once you do that, SHARE to your friends (of course) and TELL me what you think (leave comments, tweet me, ask.fm/TVKNoni, all that). Our latest collab is a remix to his song off of his latest album (I'm rapping a bit!). Its got a good vibe, so take a LISTEN! We are planning to make a video for that, but first a video will be made for our first collab, "Solace In Me."

Stokes Entertainment is planning to do an interview with me, but we want to know what questions do y'all have?? SUBMIT any QUESTIONS you may have for me on my Facebook artist page --- www.facebook.com/thevillagekid I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

There are SO MANY things I have cooking up! I can't really break them all down to you right now, but I can say that I am planning to go back into the studio soon to restart working on my album, "It's About Me Now!" I am regretful that production for it came to a halt, but life happens... It's a new year and new opportunities are coming about! I am very excited! I will let you know when that starts up and keep you updated (of course). Anyway, I have a lot of things to do to prepare for the album and do it RIGHT this time around, so I am planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign. I will most likely need the help of you all to get things started and ensure I get the best quality project to give to you all. Of course, there will be gifts and goodies in store, especially for those who donate!

So ... that is pretty much it, in a nutshell, for now. THANK YOU for reading, keeping up-to-date with me, listening to my music, watching my videos - just SUPPORTING the entire VILLAGEMOVEMENT so far! I appreciate this more than I can say. A lot more stuff is coming your way!

This May Seem Random But...

Good Morning!

It's pretty early in the morning and my mind is RaCiNg...

If anyone knows of performance opportunities in the Philadelphia/New York area from this coming Saturday to the next (Feb. 22 - Mar. 2) please let me know! I might be able to come through! I am looking for gig opportunities, so I just thought I'd put the word out...

Quick little update, things have been HeCtIc lately; my head has been spinning constantly! It has been getting increasingly difficult to balance what I have to do and what I want to do, and it has been increasingly difficult to differentiate the two. Nevertheless, got some things on the way! Might make a video to share updates, but this is just a clue that there are some things coming your way! Maybe some things you wouldn't even expect...hmmm

'Til the next time

AWESOME NEW UPDATE ...That Has To Wait ... Only A Little Bit, Though

I think that was the longest blog title I've ever made up...0_o Anywhooooo...

I REALLY WANT to share this AWESOME update with you all, but I got to get some things straight with school first.... SO, I want to wait until tomorrow (FRIDAY THANK GOD!!) when I know my stuff will be situated and we can all bask in the awesomeness together! Lol So yes ... the STAY ON THE LOOKOUT remains ... But for valid reason.

Thank you for supporting and keeping up to date with my endeavors!

Peace & Love, TheVillageKid, NR

Hey guys! I need your participation...

I will be doing an interview with STOKES Entertainment, and he thought that it'd be cool if you all submit questions as opposed to him coming up with the questions solely. I think this would be awesome! So SUBMIT QUESTIONS to be answered in an upcoming interview video with Stokes Entertainment!!
