This is a long interview, but I got through it all with time. I'm glad I took the time to listen! It's very inspiring! What I took mostly was hearing this is tips on being an entrepreneur. As you may know. I have been an entrepreneur for about 2 and a half years now, running a music lessons studio. The talk about having a trade that can help fund your passion. I am always an artist first, but teaching is something I happen to be very good at! They also discuss how crucial it is to have a team, and the importance of having the right people a part of your journey. This definitely got me brainstorming on ideas to build my brand as a whole. It's definitely worth watching!
This was a very special day! I premiered by Skyler's Vocal Healing Tea at Run Dat Back on September 3rd. The event was curated by So Soul Productions, and it took place at Apache Cafe. Prior to the event, I spent my day recording a demo of my original song, and teaching private music lessons.
I didn't grow up listening to her music super heavy, but I've always appreciated her classics, like "Video" and "Brown Skin." As I delve deeper into my own music, I'm listening more closely to different things, and she's one of the artists I selected to study. I learned a lot from watching documentaries, interviews, and this concert video from a jazz festival in 2014. I really appreciate her positive and empowering lyrical content. Her voice is so rich, and it's super dope she can play the flute!
My life is a song still being written...watch my lyrics evolve.
