Well the EP is completed and is set for a September 18th release date! Since last night I have gone through a slew of emotions! In the beginning when it seemed that my plans were falling apart, it was really God setting me up for something greater! With exclusive production from 2 outstanding producers, and written, arranged, and vocally performed by me, Deeper is an amazingly solid body of work that tells a story of life, love, & lessons learned. When I am behind the mic, I feel totally free to tell my truths. I am certain that you will be amazed and inspired when you hear this new music. It's an indescribable feeling to be in this space right now. To see my vision made plain. This has certainly been a journey. I can't wait to share this project with you! The best is yet to come!
Last night's performance at The Abbey was amazing! So much growth has taken place especially in the past 6 months. I am more confident and more comfortable than I've ever been before in myself and my artistry. God continues to show me that if I just trust His plan and His timing that He will provide everything I need to Be Great! It's something about seeing your hard work and dedication manifest from just a vision in your head to your breathing reality that gives you a high like no other! I am beyond excited about what the future holds and I cannot wait to share the entire EP! It will inspire you to greatness!!!
When I started writing and recording this new music, all I knew was that I wanted to challenge myself vocally and creatively while still staying true to myself and writing and singing songs with a relatable meaning. The title "Deeper" came to me one night and I began to ponder on what that meant. This process of recording has been much more spiritual than I ever knew it would be. Understanding more about myself has enabled me to understand my artistry more and embrace the unique way in which I tell my story. I realized that my creativity is stifled when I am overly consumed with the opinions of others. I promised myself that I would trust myself more and give in fully to the creative process. The results have been amazing!!! In the beginning it seemed that my plans for this project were falling apart but God showed me that He had a different plan. I can say that His plan is much better!!! I am close to announcing a release date for the lead single and moving into the final stages of recording & mixing. I am eagerly anticipating the day I can share this work with you! I believe that this new music will inspire you to greatness!
The unpredictable pain of losing you Although you were never mine Clearly just a moment in time Need to pause and then rewind Soak in the space stare deeply in your face Wish it never happened If I knew that this would happen The unpredictable pain of losing you Knocks me unconscious Leaving me breathless How can you be so reckless? Hard to believe that none of it was true Just a case of fear consuming you The unpredictable pain of losing you Yet I remain in deep thought of you Replaying the intimate interactions A connection deeper than physical attraction But fear lends itself to adverse reaction The greatest love infraction Now there's no us Just you Just Me Left with the unpredictable pain of losing you
The 2nd Installment of Kay Soul Seasons was nothing short of amazing! In the days leading up to the event, I began to wonder if everything would fall into place. In true form, God came through and I watched as my vision unfolded better than I had imagined. In top vocal form, I took the mic and fell into a zone like I have never felt before. Each note seemed to fly out my mouth with crisp and clear precision. I watched the audience react favorably, many whom I had never seen before. I took a gamble filling the show with mostly original songs but the audience seemed engaged in each one as I shared with them my inspiration behind each song. By the end of the night I was on a high of a lifetime and I couldn't help but feel an overwhelming sense of satisfaction. I am continously surpised and amazed on this journey. I am doing things that I never imagined and on a level that I once only dreamed about. One of the attendees simple commented "the growth"! 3 days later and I am still so filled up with excitement! I know that it has not only been my dilligence to perfecting my craft but all the trials and tests that I have been through that have strengthened my voice, allowed me to develop a style all my own and be extremely comfortable in my own skin. It feels like I have waited my whole life to finally get to this place. I'm such a perfectionist but I finally understand that God has been preparing me for this time in my life all along. Even with all that being said....THE BEST IS YET TO COME! Stay tuned!!!!!
As I sit back contemplating these growing pains How nothing seems the same Yet still the passion remains insane Making artistic choices Contrary to political voices I choose to breath life into myself They say great risk leads to great reward So I'm betting it all on my accord Tempting distractions threaten to pull the chord But I rely on my own power lines Cause we living in desperate times Pretentious frenemies try to steal you blind From behind Then front in your front Meaningless words just changing the font But you can miss me with that Take that right back Cause actions speak louder I'll just quietly ReAct Step back and then Redact Subtract you and add new Nothing personal Just seeing through the rehearsal you Content with accepting that these growing pains Help me see that nothing stays the same Yet my passion remains insane
It's definitely a feel good Friday. I remember when I first heard about reverberation and decided to join what has become the top website for independent artists. At the time, I was ranked in the 600's of R&B artists locally and somewhere in the hemisphere when it came to national and global ranking. This morning (for the second day :-)) I am in the No. 1 spot locally, 20 nationally, and 26 globally in R&B/Soul artists. I just want to thank everyone who rocks with me and has encouraged me along the way. Quite frankly, I'm really just getting started! It's all about the process of the journey. Local charts today....BILLBOARD CHARTS TOMORROW!!! #NoReservations! #Staytuned #Dontgiveuponyourdreams #enjoytheprocess Like
Just getting in from my performance at the Olympic Theater and I am feeling on top of the world. Serving as my biggest performance venue to date, it was amazing to be on a big stage. As I stared into the bright lights shining down on me, I felt a strong sensation in my spirit and I knew God was just showing me a glimpse of where I am headed on this musical journey. As I sang, I imagined that the audience was filled to capacity and it was up to me in that moment to leave it all on the stage. It's so amazing to me how much I have grown as an artist. Each performance becomes more effortless as I embrace my unique artistry. A young lady came up to me after the show and told me that she loved my performance and could really feel my words. She made my day. That is really what it's all about, being able to connect with people through my music. I am so humble and grateful for this time in my life. God continues to show me that if I just trust completely in Him, that every door shall be open. Tonight gave me more confidence as I continue to prepare for Kay Soul Seasons on October 4th. I'm loving this journey and I can't wait to see what's next!!!
The past 4 days have been amazing! From working with Platinum Selling industry producers Arkatech Beatz, to meeting musical legend Elis Hall, to attending and presenting at the Georgia Music Awards! It was a world wind of music, art, and entertainment and I loved every minute of it!!! I'm in awe of God right now because I know HE is the ultimate reason for all good things that have manifested in my life. As he continues to unfold the plan before me, I know that I am on the right path and I more focused than ever to follow my dreams like never before. It feels good to face my challenges and my fears head on while pushing thru the adversity that threatens to derail the vision. BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE BOUNDLESS!!! The Journey Continues....
What an awesome day for new music. From the moment I woke up, I felt the positive energy in the air. I instantly checked itunes and there I was ready for the world to purchase my new singles and embrace my artistry. What started out as a slow progression has become a steady and purposeful movement of self love, expression, growth, and strength. I'm so grateful for this time in my life. It feels good to be able to look back and see the positive changes that have taken place. I know that the path I have chosen is a challenging one but I am more than ready to face them head on. I've conquered so many of my past fears and it has helped me believe more in myself and what I have to offer not just as an artist, but as a woman, a mother, a sister, a friend....a human being! This new music is an offering up of myself to share with you my heart. I hope that you will receive it in kind!
