'm having a moment: got the #contrabandmixtape CDs in the mail. Feeling good feeling great! Popped a fancy drink in celebration for completing a project a few years in the making. More work ahead: videos, shows, but right now? I'm just gonna enjoy this. Thank you for all of those that supported this project creatively and gave me encouragement to keep going! You know who you are and I'm thankful! 100%!! Let's go!
Stay tuned for when this mixtape drops! I'll be posting the release date soon...
We all have a creative advantage.: something that motivates us to go beyond what we thought we could do. Here's my creative advantage: 11.5 yr old iPod. It has outlasted 2 other new Ipods. Broken top. I've written to hundreds of beats off of it. Great for throwing mixes on in the car. In fact, the only way it runs is when hookedup to my car stero. lol! Otherwise, battery life? 5 min. I could upgrade, but something about the grit of it lasting to serve a creative purpose- makes me respect it more ;)
What's good people!!
I have a show coming up in two weeks that I'm VERY EXCITED ABOUT ;) I'll be rocking at Oakland's Legionnaire Saloon on 12/17. I've been wanting to perform at this spot for a minute, I get to share the bill with a group I've been collaborating with (Upwords Movement!) and most of all I'll be performing my set with the homies: Woodstock (Crown City) on the MPC and Kev O'Dea (Grease Traps) on guitar! It's only $7 at the door, opens up at 8 and a great way to start your weekend off right! Details below...come through!!
This had to be one of the funnest gigs I've performed in a long time! Here are a couple of great photos and hopefully a video snippet is in the works...
