Mayyadda has done it again! She returns with an 8-track digital album entitled, “Holding Space” This project carefully embodies that 90’s Goapele vibe; yet of course with her own quirky-motivational twist. The power in this project comes from its simplicity in preparation. Listening to it, I can tell these songs started with a guitar, a feeling, and a voice in heart. I think what I enjoy about this young queens music most is the fact that it can be listened to around anyone. Small children or Grandma. It is perfect for most occasions and gatherings because she is bold in her craft, subtle with her expression, and relate-able on many-many playing fields.
My favorite tracks: Love Ain’t Supposed To Be, Dying Day, Sick and Tired.
When the East Coast meshes with the West Coast it’s only evident that magic happens. Gerard and I met at the Lexington in Downtown Los Angeles in the summer of 2016, along with another local LA-Chicago artist who goes by the name Ramaj Eroc. Upon meeting each other, we also spoke about our dreams and aspirations and where we thought we’d be in our near futures…and well, here you have it: Our first Networking event has been bodied! We took a leap of faith hoping to take off to better places.
For anyone who does not know, My mans Gerard is a hard-dedicated businessman. He literally gives up sleep for his dreams. (Oh, The Irony) The multi-talented performing artist, singer, all around dope MC has made me so proud to call him a friend. Nothing he does goes unnoticed I tell ya…..nothing. Below are more photos of the event, feel free to scroll through:
Greetings listeners, artists, and creatives of all kind: My business partner and I have decided that it is time to put together a mixer for the underground. We have artists traveling from all over the world coming to attend this event and make it CRACK! If you are an artist or performer or creative of any kind and would like to be apart of the shenanigans, please message either Gerard or I for more information.
#LolaListens: London artist Jordan Rakei just released the visuals to his newest single ‘Eye To Eye.’ It gets deep. It gets dark. Eye To Eye is a beautiful piece of work. It’s abstract enough to make you think and get your mind wandering, yet it’s detailed enough for one to know what’s going on….At The Same Damn Time. Rakei gives us the best-of-all-vibes: A little jazz here, a little electronic there and Vwah-lah. Masterpiece.
“…let them bleed twice for a minute Pleasure to have met you, you’re my star tonight..“
He’s back with a story to tell. The multi-talented artist, singer, and dancer always amazes. I hope you all read “body language.” We all know him as OmegaSoul and he has returned with a video/story that depicts a man who is controlled by the rhythm of dance. As the dance spirit compels him, he obeys. He is a slave of the melody.
Aeriel, the ultra-femme R&B / Pop Singer from Los Angeles, California came to rain innocent yet nostalgic 90’s vibes down upon us all. She is a woman of power and sincerity behind every word she vocalizes. Her track “Be Down” instantly brought me back to a happy place in the 90’s for sure. The Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey high-time era. Back when R&B singers voices’ were as big as there hearts were. Vulnerable, she is, and vulnerable is always nice when you’re being REAL. She definitely, without a doubt will make a solid name for herself if she keeps this up. Go Queen!
” She’s making way with her sensual 90’s vibes and she’s doing it right. “
The world’s most chill artist Day Brown is back at it I tell ya’! “Love Drug (Blackmoon)” featuring Joe Sig is the ultimate sit-back-and-relax track. This song lowkey sounds like a unique spin-off of Miguel’s “Drugs.“
