Bozeman – Burnt Toast Pt. 1

 

 

Name the artists that have influenced you so far.

Quinn XCII, ayokay, Post Malone, Lil Peep, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Chance the Rapper.

.

.

.

Mention the name of the artist you can regard as the “Greatest Of All Time”.

I think Kendrick Lamar is probably the greatest rapper of all time.  It’s extremely difficult to jump into other genres and say that one is better than another.

.

.

.

Discuss composition.

For my songs I like to work on really creative instrumental tracks and the lyrics according to the mood that I’ve created in the song.  Typically I have an idea of what I want a song to be about when I start to create it but I feel like a large part of the process is finding the vibe along the way.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

An independent artist originally from Montana, I just finished college.  I like to focus on making songs that tell stories.  My debut EP burnt toast pt. 1 is a low tech exploration of love, addiction, and my own experiences with anxiety.  My songs are word heavy because I love stringing together rhymes and detailed verses that explore what language can convey over beats I’ve made.    I’m now in NYC working on a new project.

.

.

.

Elaborate on this song.

These songs offer an insight into some of my more personal experiences, but also address more general feelings.  ‘Legos’ is about avoiding responsibility and longing for the freedom that you had when you were a kid.  ‘Burnt Toast’ is about a relationship that didn’t work.  ‘Social’ is about the ways that we struggle with being so connected.  ‘Drag’ is about anxiety.  ‘Fly’ is about trying to find positivity in spite of everything that goes on.

.

.

.

Rate the social media and tell us the platform that works best for promoting your music.

I like promoting my music on Instagram because I feel that it can capture a feeling with an image and also provide context in the caption.

.

.

.

State the areas that need improvement in the music industry.

I think one of the areas that needs improvement in the music industry is the relationship between publishers and streaming sites.  With the tremendous change of how people consume music, there’s sort of a jump over an entire part of the process.

.

.

.

Tell us how you prepare yourself for a live performance or show.

I like to really hype myself up and try to harness a lot of energy for a live performance.  This can be in the form of a personal pep talk or jumping jacks.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on frequent releasing of singles or just an album in a while.

I think it is a good idea to release a couple singles to get people excited for an album.  As long as the quality of the music isn’t compromised, I see no problem in getting as much music out as possible.  But you should never release something just to have more content out there.

.

.

.

Mention the name of the artist you will be glad to see the live performance.

I would love to see Quinn XCII live.  He brings such awesome energy to his shows and is generally a really cool guy.  He is also my dream collaborator.

.

.

.

Tell us the theme of most of your songs.

I think that all of my songs address anxiety or depression in some ways.  Like, even in the more upbeat stuff that I try to work on, there is still this bed rock of working through things.

.

.

.

Discuss your recording.

This project was done low tech in GarageBand.  I found an empty studio space and went to town with a cheap microphone and a midi keyboard.  It was a really cool intro experience and the end product was better than I could have imagined.  I’m looking forward to upping the ante on my next project.

.

.

.

Tell us how boring or exciting the music career can be.

I think a music career is exciting.  The process of trying to make music you’re happy with and that people like is both challenging and extremely gratifying.

.

.

.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

My artist’s name is Bozeman.  I chose it because it has a nice catchy sound to it and it also is a cool callback to my growing up in Montana.

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

Legos- I chose this title for this song because I thought the idea of playing with Legos perfectly encapsulated the feeling of wanting to be a kid again.

 

Burnt Toast- I chose this title because of the line in the song “You took too long now I’m just burnt toast.”  Suggesting that the relationship wasn’t going anywhere for too long so I’m burnt out.

 

Social- I chose this title because the song addresses social media and the power it has.

 

Drag- I chose this title because I feel like the word “drag” really represents the feeling of being depressed and anxious.

 

Fly- I chose this title because the feeling of breaking free, even momentarily from anxiety and depression can feel like flying.

.

.

.

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

I chose that album title not only because of the song with the same title, but also I loved the image and the album art that my collaborating artist friend created.

American Psongs – Conversion

 

Originally formed in 2007, Conversion is a 4-man studio band from Arvada, CO, a Denver suburb; it is made up of Jack Moss, lead vocalist/bass player; JD Hash, lead guitarist/vocalist; Frank Harritt, rhythm guitar/principal songwriter; Riley Tremmel, vocals; and Roman Palomino, drums/percussion. All of its members have full-time jobs other than Riley, who is still a student in high school.

 

Conversion’s music would be traditionally classified as Christian Rock, but it reveals other American influences of country, folk, and blues styles, even including reggae! Conversion as a band hopes that their music will reach out to all peoples of all faiths and of all cultures, helping America promote world peace through the dialogue and exchange of music.  50% of their proceeds will be donated to charity, primarily going back to the church and local organizations that support the poor.

 

 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Conversion – “American Psongs”

 

“Unknown Colorado Band Strikes Gold With July 4th Debut”

 

 

Conversion’s American Psongs Stuns World With Its Music, Message

 

 

Denver, CO, July 4, 2018 (AP) – Per a United Nations resolution in 2002, September 21 has been designated as the International Day of Peace, but as the United States prepares to celebrate the 242nd anniversary of its Declaration of Independence on July 4th, America and the world continue to experience a never-ending stream of crimes against humanity – suicide bombers, school shootings, police violence, and border/immigration wars. So, an unknown studio band from Colorado, Conversion, has stunned the world with amazing music and an amazing message: World Peace Through Psongs of Hope. Their new, double CD, debut album can be heard and purchased at Website.

 

 

Although America has been specially blessed by God, America in recent years has drifted away from God and His ways and has suffered untold violence and tragedy, much like the ancient nation of Israel suffered greatly when they turned their backs on God. Perhaps in the same way that King David honored God with words and music – and who also lived with a generous and loving heart for both friends and enemies through his Psalms -Conversion can provide hope today with American Psongs™.

 

 

Mankind’s attempts to solve the violence and tragedies of today have, at best, met with partial success; if ever there was a time in human history where God’s direct intervention was directly needed, that time is now. Enter Conversion and their new album, American Psongs. As advocated by Dr. King, all Christians are called to love both friend and enemy, as did King David in Bible times, and this is non-negotiable – as challenging as it seems.

 

 

At the same time, Christians are called to humbly seek God’s help when human solutions fail, for God is always loyal to his faithful people, and we desperately need His help right here, right now. Music – as expressed through these Psongs of Hope – can be a simple starting point for opening dialogue with friends and enemies alike, regardless of their faiths, beliefs, or cultures.  As President Ronald Reagan once stated, “If not us, who?  If not now, when?”

 

 

It makes sense that Conversion’s veteran musicians—lead guitarist JD Hash, singer/guitarist Jack Moss, and guitarist/songwriter Frank Harritt—are all committed Christians and committed rockers.  JD and Jack have previously toured the country in their earlier careers, and Frank has played in a variety of local rock and bluegrass bands since the age of 15.

 

 

 “Our music is a simple starting point to open cross-cultural, cross-faith dialogue if the listeners like the music,” says Mr.

 

 

Harritt, “and right here, right now may be an ideal time to reach out to the world with the message that God’s Love and Mercy will overcome any and all sin and evil…for anyone, anywhere.”

 

 

Conversion’s new album of 23 upbeat rock and country Psongs – distinctively American in their roots – offer hope to a suffering world that seeks to understand one another better. We are all part of one family, the family of humanity, all the children of God, who desires that all people of all times are saved to eternal life with Him (1 Tim 2:3-4). Our situation, while difficult, is absolutely not hopeless; on the contrary, God’s Love and Mercy are available and ready to overcome any sin or evil committed by anyone, anywhere, anytime.  Conversion’s Psongs of Hope are both a direct appeal to God for His help in bringing about world peace as well as a musical olive branch to all nations, that they too might hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion – Common Ordinary Housewife

 

CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion has been captivating the globe with original, live music for more than 16 years. Their blend of blues, soul and roots music uplifts and inspires audiences with messages of hope, love and the belief that anything is possible. They pride themselves on providing incredible live music experiences that transcend cultural and generational barriers.

 

The funkiest musicians to ever touch the stage, Soul Kamotion is the smooth and passionate, Chris Baptiste (Keys & MD); the creative and innovative Terrell Kimble (Bass), the ever-so-rhythmic James Adkins (drums), and the multi-talented Lavon Rushing (Guitar). They have as their song 90 Mph suggests, one gear – high energy. Lead singer, CeCe Teneal is an award-winning, undeniable talent who both critics and fans call “a musical force to be reckoned with,” and her achievements in the industry over the past decade are certainly a testament to that view.

 

The band’s new live album, “#5or5000”, is a captivating, energetic and entertaining blend of songs that catapult you to a place where you just can’t hold back. It’s funky and fun, addressing all stages of love and living our true life. It’s enchanting yet powerful, encouraging us to move and groove on the dance floor and to embrace life. It’s faith-filled, purposeful and reflective when reminding us to appreciate our blessings, not take love for granted, and why we sometimes feel alone even when we’re in a relationship. It’s sassy and authentic when talking about the dangers of love, conquering each day and doing your own thing.

 

The album’s first single, “What I’d Do To Get Your Love Back” was originally written by CeCe’s mom, international blues singer Yvonne Jackson, and when the band listened to it, the words took on a whole new meaning. The song is an opportunity to reflect on what that moment would be like to get someone’s love back for just one day – a parent, sibling, friend or love interest. We’ve all been there.

 

In total, “#5or5000” reflects CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion’s mission of giving the same show and a hundred percent of themselves, whether there are five or five thousand people in the audience. This band is a well-primed musical force and prepared to spread their message on a global scale.

Strong A.R.M. – That’s Gangsta

 

STRONG A.R.M. is the name that describes the 6’2, 200 plus pound Brooklyn native who is definitely taking on ALL HATERS!!!! It’s a perfect description of his overall attitude. This is one artist that believes anything goes when it comes to his music. He did not choose to do hardcore hip hop, hardcore hip hop chose him!!! It allows him to say what the hell he wants. Bringing it straight to the front line so your attention is caught and kept. Don’t get STRONG A.R.M. wrong though, that is just one area of hip hop he is good at, he is versatile in all other areas as well. STRONG A.R.M. is coming straight out of Brownsville, Brooklyn NYC!!! He has been going at it for years now, and he is not about to let anyone from his past, present, or future get in his way!!!! He is self-motivated, and determined to continue until he accomplishes his dream. He has spent his entire career learning the business and perfecting his skills as an artist, writer, and producer. In the immediate future STRONG A.R.M. intends to get into every existing piece to this hip hop puzzle. For right now though, he is ready to get his material out, and his face seen by the world. There is no doubt he is ready to be heard, and it is a fact YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH THE STRONG A.R.M.!!! Now it’s really on!!!

Go into detail on why you decided to choose music as a career.

Before Hip-Hop, I felt like I had no kind of identity whatsoever, and when it came to certain things, I would always get passed over.  Once I started rapping though, people started recognizing me a little bit more, haters included (laughs). As time went on, Hip-Hop gave me my walk, my talk, my style, and basically my whole self-esteem came from being a part of the Hip-Hop culture.

.

.

.

Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans on your music.

Wow! The reception has been better than I anticipated.  It’s truly been great all over the world. Even in countries I can’t pronounce (laughs). The love and the write-ups have been a true inspiration for the new music I am currently working on.

.

.

.

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

Well really my man Warren J. at Survival Crew Records is holding me down in that arena because he has done the whole marketing and promotions side with record labels before in the 90’s like : LOUD Records, Priority Records, Relativity Records, and WEA Distribution just to name a few (And many other indie labels in between). He studied a lot on the business end of the music industry! We even had a radio show back in the days on 105.9 F.M. (WNWK). The show was called “THE MUSICAL EXPRESS”. EASY MO BEE even co-hosted some shows with us. There were many famous D.J.’s on the station like MR. MAGIC (R.I.P), THE AWESOME TWO, EVIL DEE, and the famous radio broadcaster MR.GIL BAILEY on the Reggae music tip.

Facebook

And my man Warren J. has me ALL OVER the internet! FOR REAL! My IG page is actually D.J. STRONGA.R.M. and my D.J. company name is called MAGIC DICE MUZIC.

.

.

.

Tell us how you record your song.

I use the Pro Tools program and an Apple computer to trigger everything.

.

.

.

Tell us the story behind the song.

‘That’s Gangsta’ is anything that is HOT, GOOD, and even GREAT; anything you do in your life that is considered your best. It’s more like saying ‘that’s bad’ when you actually imply that something is good. It’s more appropriately used when you achieve the feat against all odds, even when people tell you that you couldn’t do it in the first place.

.

.

.

State your musical skills.

Strong A.R.M. = the A.R.M. means “A REAL MC”. I am also a DJ, and back in the days I used to beatbox when I was in this group. My name was THE HUMAN AMP BOX (laughs). I really and truly lived by the order of being in the Hip Hop culture.

.

.

.

Tell us how long it takes to complete a song from the start.

Not long. Once I hear the beat, I go from there. And the song is done not long after that.

.

.

.

Discuss music in full details.

I love music in different formats as well. Like I said earlier, I am a DJ. So I love to listen to different sounds, and see how I can make them relevant for myself and/or the project I am working on at that time.

.

.

.

State your five favourite genres of music with reasons.

HIP HOP – That’s what I am!!!

 

R&B – I really like a good singer.

 

DANCE – Music that can make you feel free.

 

REGGAE – I love the different rhythms.

 

POP – I grew up listening to U2, and BOY GEORGE, WHAM, and DAVID BOWIE! The NEW artists are very good too like RIHANNA, PINK, ARIANA GRANDE, BEYONCE, and KELLY CLARKSON just to name a few. Really too many to mention (laughs).

.

.

.

State your favourite musical instruments.

Drums, Piano, and Guitar.

.

.

.

Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.

It is a beautiful thing! I could be having a bad day but when I feel the energy from the crowd, all negativity goes away for a moment. The chemistry between me and my fans is a GREAT one! BELIEVE THAT!

.

.

.

Discuss your personality in full details

My personality is that regardless of the situation, I am always going to give you THE REAL ME! You might not always like it (laughs) but you cannot say that you think that I am playing a role to make you feel better.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

Like ANY artist, I have been through plenty of UPS and DOWNS in this business of music! I have gone through “A BUNCH” to be at this point you see me at today. And I know I am going to go through PLENTY more! But like my record label states, I’m a SURVIVOR! And like the phoenix flying out of the ashes, I WILL RISE!

.

.

.

Share your memorable experiences with us.

When I think back, one of my most memorable moments is when I got to shoot my first solo video for a song titled ‘Let’s Get It On’. I mean it was the greatest feeling ever with all the people who showed up to support what was going on. It was great. Before that, it was seeing my name on a record. It was the coolest thing ever.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite genre of music and your reason.

R&B is my favorite genre. Singing about any topic preferably situations based on real love always touches the heart in a sympathetic way. I always wished I can sing but that’s not where my talent lies.

.

.

.

Tell us your experience as a musician.

Music has been part of my life since the age of 5. I’ve met a lot of people along the way. My journey has turned me into not only a writer and composer but also a performer, producer, promoter, engineer, and DJ. I guess it’s what comes with the territory of being a real musician.

.

.

.

Tell us the theme of your song.

“What You Need” theme is focused on lust, affection, and fun times. Wanting to give to get what you want from one but with good vibes.

.

.

.

Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.

The people behind my journey are myself, and DJ Mike Smooth. My will and strength, his way and guidance, we shall taste success in its freshest form.

My future goals has always been my goals from now, which is to become a pioneer, icon, and a role model.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

My debut album “Rookie of the Year” was released March 27, 2018. I’m getting more streams and notoriety with each day that passes – such a humbling experience.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.

My music is meant to take my fans on a positive mental journey with me. How it inspires them is totally up to them.

.

.

.

Analyze the transformations you have discovered so far in the music industry.

The music industry is constantly changing with each song, each day. Staying relevant is the only way to stay afloat in which I plan and have no problem with doing.

.

.

.

State the artists you cherish most and your reason.

Michaels (myself) that should be self-explanatory.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.

My lyrics all come from my heart and mind, whatever and however my soul is feeling. It doesn’t have to be to a beat or instrumental, it just has to be real.

.

.

.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.

As a proud satisfied solo artist, I love collaborating with other artists. It gives the music more point of views and sometimes direction.

.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the music with a genuine message that inspires them.

Music was made to bring people together and dance. That was at the beginning of time. Then artists found ways to actually vent in their music, to what situations they or someone else are going through. Not necessarily to inspire but to make aware of what’s going on.

.

.

.

Explain copyright.

Copyright is a legal right, existing globally in many countries, that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to determine and decide whether, and under what conditions, this original work may be used by others.

.

.

.

Discuss the impact of a Performance Rights Organization.

ASCAP makes sure I’m paid and protected.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.

I produce (beats) music with no direction. I just go at it knowing it has to sound relevant for today’s modern era. When it’s finished, then I listen to what it’s saying to me, then I decide what to write about.

.

.

.

Go into detail on the recording of this song.

I produced “What You Need” at my older sister’s house in Brooklyn not knowing if it was something I would actually write a song to. I originally wrote the song lyrics to another beat I produced but the beat was much darker and not so commercial. I had to weigh my options on what would be more beneficial to the project.

.

.

.

Discuss your music performance.

My performances are very special to me; also addicting but scary at the same time. I connect with the people through the music, without it; it’s hard to connect with them. I always leave the stage with an intoxicating feeling that no liquid or substance can give me, and that’s what makes it addicting.

.

.

.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

Michaels, because that my name.

.

.

.

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

“Rookie of the Year” because I am.

THE FOLLOW UP TO THEIR #1 SINGLE,

 

“AINT SEEN IT YET”

 

‘NO SAD SONG’ IS A CROSSOVER HIT!

 

 

 

The Wolfe Brothers – No Sad Song

 

 

The Wolfe Brothers are one of the most exciting country rock bands to emerge out of Australia. Upon release of their highly-anticipated new album, Country Heart, the release shot straight to the top of the iTunes country chart (#1) and #4 on the iTunes main (all genre) chart. With the release of ARIA charts, Country Heart landed at #9 on the ARIA Main Album chart, sitting behind the then recent stadium touring artists Ed Sheeran (3x albums) and Bruno Mars.

 

After the success of their previous albums – It’s On, Nothing But Trouble and This Crazy Life – Country Heart is The Wolfe Brothers’ fourth studio album and their highest ARIA main chart debut to date.

 

With their forthcoming tour dates, The Wolfe Brothers drop their 2nd single, No Sad Song. With its huge crossover appeal, this track is set to showcase the guys’ broad appeal as they travel around the country hitting shows in metro and regional venues.

 

TWB’s on No Sad Song:

As a band we’ve never lost sight of the fact the music is meant to be an escape. No Sad Song is simply a song about a free spirit out for a good time. We hope it can take our listeners to that ‘Friday night, get loose and let your hair down’ place for 3 and half minutes – no matter what day of the week it is.”

 

Pioneers of Australian contemporary country music, The Wolfe Brothers (Tom Wolfe, Nick Wolfe, Brodie Rainbird) completed the album in Sydney with their new producer, the multi-award winning Matt Fell and was mastered by renowned engineer, William Bowden (Goyte). All of this has led to a fresh and more developed sound with Country Heart.

Kyera – Passion

 

 

Go into detail on why you decided to choose music as a career.

My love of music has always been my passion. I am a musician, songwriter, singer, and vocalist.  My unique sound is felt to the depths of people’s soul.  I love the effect that being in the zone has on me while composing, singing or performing and I love the effects I have on others.   Everyday sounds, from the ringing of a telephone – to a sweeping broom, translated into music and rhythm, inspiring me to compose, sing and dance to the symphony surrounding my environment.

.

.

.

Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans on your music.

Those who love Kyera tend to be fanatic.  My sound is deep with a fast vibrato.   I’m new, unique and different which can become a new normal.   Fans love my power and energy when I perform.

.

.

.

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

I appreciate the amount of control an artist has in getting their music out there and actually heard via social media.  And in getting one’s own music out there, you get to discover other very talented artists who are just as hungry as you to be heard and make their mark on music.

.

.

.

Tell us how you record your song.

Producer, Narada Michael Walden, studied my voice and my performances from my last album called, ‘Ethereal’, and was so in tune with me that he says he channeled my spirit when composing the music to the two songs he wrote for me.  He then sent me the two tracks and I had 2 days to write the lyrics before flying out to Tarpan Studios to record.  I recorded ‘Passion’ and ‘Heart of Gold’ during a weekend.  Narada is an exceptional producer.

Tell us the story behind the song.

Narada Michael Walden studied my earlier music and videos and was inspired by the way I move.  I have a soft aggressive dramatic movement that can captivate.  There was this one particular move that I did where I stomp really hard and shake.  He had never seen that before.  I said that he was watching my raw passion and so he wanted to compose something where I could do my thing on it.  So he composed a song where I could stomp and say, “With Passion.”  He composed the music and communicated the idea of passion.  I loved the composition and went into my cave zone and wrote lyrics that integrated and enhanced the music.

State your musical skills.

I play the piano and the guitar but I am not a pro on these instruments.  I can play enough to record and enjoy playing around.  I would like to improve my skills on both.  I grew up playing the clarinet and the bassoon.  Maybe it’s like riding a bike, but it’s been a long time since I’ve played either of those instruments.

Tell us how long it takes to complete a song from the start.

If someone else has composed the song, it’s a solid two days.  If it’s me composing, wow, I get inspired in so many different ways.  But if I am in the zone, I can compose the bare bones of a song in about a day and then take about a week building and reworking, tweaking and expanding as well as the lyrics.

Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.

If someone else has composed the song, it’s a solid two days of immersing myself in the world of the source of the creator and combine the duplication of what they were communicating with the music with how the music influences me.  Then I write and re-write and re-write the lyrics.  Ah, before the lyrics I feel the melody of the lyrics.  The rhythm of the words.  The flow.  So I often have very temporary lyrics that I know will change, it’s just the rhythm is correct.  Then I will strike upon a line that is absolutely correct for the feel, mood and communication and I start building from that.

Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.

I address each person, even if I’m performing for huge crowds.  I don’t like look at each person, but my intention is that each individual is impacted.   I want people to feel what I’m feeling when I sing.  There is an impingement that happens.

Discuss your music career.

I began composing at an early age 7 and produced my first official song when I was 16.  Grew up being told I didn’t have a good voice; not a good singing voice.  I wasn’t so much bothered by that because I viewed myself as a composer.  My album was an instrumental using piano/synthesizer. When I learned how to play the guitar, I began writing songs with lyrics — for someone else to sing.  I would sing them at open mic, just because I was proud of the song, but did not attach to singing them.  One day I was helping a fashion designer friend as a model in her fashion show.  While driving in my car, she asked me to sing one of my songs.  20 minutes of back and forth of me declining and her persisting.  I finally sang a song to her.  When I first began singing, I could see that I really got her actual attention and she was engaged.  I felt comfortable and began to sink into the natural depth of my voice.  She started crying and proclaimed that no one should ever sing my songs but me.  She asked me to open her fashion show which I did and got rave reviews.  I then decided to go for it as an artist and wrote, produced and sang my next album, ‘Ethereal’.

Share your memorable experiences with us.

There had been so much chemistry between Narada Michael Walden and myself with the composing and writing of the song ‘Passion’, that there was so much excitement built up before our meeting.  When I entered his studio, video cameras were rolling and I had a bouquet of flowers waiting for me.  It was awesome.  I had noticed his rockstar bracelet and commented that I loved it.  About 20 minutes later, he knelt down and created a little ceremony of gifting his rockstar bracelet to me.

“Passion” is in Rotation at iHeartRadio stations on 105.1FM in Greater New York, 103.5FM in Greater Miami and 102.1FM in Greater Philadelphia

 

“Passion” is my anthem to empower people to be courageous and believe in themselves.”

— Kyera

 

 

NEW YORK, NY, USA, April 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ – You might say that Kyera, a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, is a unicorn in the music world. Her long, flowing, natural wavy hair, supermodel height, athletic body and “no nonsense” approach to life will command your attention. Kyera’s magical energy combined with a deep, haunting, beautiful voice will reach the depths of your soul and take a strong hold of your ears.

 

A recent transplant from Hollywood, California to New York City, Kyera comes out into the spotlight with the debut of her single “Passion” on iHeartRadio stations 105.1FM in Greater New York, 103.5FM in Greater Miami and 102.1FM in Greater Philadelphia areas.

 

The studio release was produced by Grammy Award-Winning Mega Producer Narada Michael Walden and features multiple award-winner guitarist and international icon Carlos Santana‘s legendary musical signature on Kyera’s electrifying single.

 

“Kyera reminds me of the incomparable Nina Simone, “The High Priestess of Soul,” said Walden. “She has a distinct sound, look, and delivers timeless music.” Kyera counts Simone as one of her influencers, along with Sia, Queen, David Bowie, and Tracy Chapman.

 

“Ms. Simone was really outspoken and didn’t play around, neither does Kyera,” said Walden. “We are not used to hearing Nina Simone live, we are not used to hearing that kind of low voice with such natural vibrato like Kyera’s and it’s wonderful.”

 

Who knew that Kyera’s unwavering passion for music and unique sound would lead her on a mystical journey across the country- from New York to Northern California – onto the stomping grounds of Walden, the hit maker.

 

“My introduction to Narada happened through Entertainment Consultant and Music Producer Raffles Van Exel,” said Kyera. “I recorded my song on my iPhone and sent it to Narada, hoping he would like it.” Her unique vocals slayed the song. A well-rounded musician, she plays the clarinet, bassoon, piano, and guitar.

 

“It’s her vibe, her music and lyrics that breathes life into her sound made for the world to hear,” said Van Exel whose circle of close-knit friends have included musical giants (past) Prince, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston; and (present) George Lopez, Elton John, Chaka Khan, just to name a few. “Kyera is a breath of fresh air.”

 

“With my music and performance, my intention is the same; to reach out, grab you and indulge your emotions… your heart… you,” explained Kyera. “My music ranges from simple to epic, from country to contemporary imbued with Latin strumming and some tribal influences.”

 

That said. It was time to take her skills to the next level. “My life didn’t truly start, until I started singing the songs in my heart,” proclaims Kyera.

 

“It is an interesting experience because right now I am living a dream, and yet it feels like it was supposed to be,” said Kyera. “I don’t have a fluttering feeling that I have to hold on to this because I am going to lose it. I feel I have created a new norm that I am stepping into and it feels very comfortable.”

 

Walden has an impressive 57 number one hits and produced for superstars like Aretha Franklin; Vesta Williams; Al Jarreau; George Benson; Steve Winwood; Phyllis Hyman; Stacy Lattisaw; Al Green; Shanice Wilson; Ray Charles; Diana Ross; Gladys Knight; Tevin Campbell; Angela Bofill; Natalie Cole; Elton John & Kiki Dee; Eddie Murphy; Pointer Sisters; Sister Sledge; Sheena Easton; The Temptations; Whitney Houston; Mariah Carey; and more.

 

“I am very aware of the magnitude of that new level from which I stepped onto from where I was,” said Kyera. “I feel I have always been at that magnitude but the timing wasn’t right.” She says that everything in her life is now aligned including the purpose of her life and everyone around her.

 

“My next steps in my music career are: revisiting the old which I may or may not do, creating the new Kyera and forging more collaborations,” she said. “My success is a reality.”

 

Kyera shares the inspiration behind her song,”Passion.”

The lyrics of “Passion” carries the message much like an anthem to empower people to be courageous and believe in themselves. The track, composed by Walden, is powerful and evokes a sound made to fill up big spaces and ascend to the universe from an amphitheater such as the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.

 

The production of her single is nothing short of what the power of musical geniuses can accomplish and shoot Kyera to new heights in the music industry.

 

“Kyera’s lyrics are on point,” said Santana, who has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, among his many accolades, Santana has won 10 GRAMMY® Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMY’s.

 

“You will only achieve happiness if you are passionate about what you are doing,” explained Kyera. “People don’t know that they are missing out of life because they are not tuned into that.”

Kyera’s mantra is “I’m not going to apologize for my greatness.”
