Backstage at Nola’s featuring Danielle W. Carter and The Sounds of Soul

Also, we have new pictures from the NolasLA show!  LAKMG, a fully staffed and very driven artist development team based on Los Angeles, presented the first Soul and RnB Indie Express event at Nola‘s Los Angeles featuring my band, Danielle W. Carter and the Sounds of Soul.  They really took great care to make sure my band and I were positioned for an excellent show.  They even arranged for a post show interview with local publicist Jerica Williams.

My band was proud to kick off the evening with five original songs!  Now is a fine time to introduce these talented musicians.  Drum roll please….Chris Lee on the keys,  Chuksingh on guitar, Melony Varnado on supporting vocals, Howard Brodwin on drums and Eric Frazier on bass.  This was the very first time performing together as a full band.  I feel honored and grateful everyday to collaborate with such talent.  Big hugs and many thanks!

Random Night Out: VIP Tickets to Lianne La Havas (London’s Soulful Singer/Songwriter)

Pleasant surprise!  Random story about how I ended up in VIP at Lianne’s concert.  My friend’s cousin (who I met a couple days prior) texts me at 9PM.  He has an extra ticket to see London singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas.  The concert is going to start in 15 minutes!  I grab a quick dry kale salad…it was so dry!!…and jump into a cab downtown.  As I walk up the dimly light steps into the concert venue, I hear Lianne singing.  As I wait by the steps/entrance, a couple who is leaving asks if I want to take their VIP passes since they have to go.  Yes please!  My new friend and I head on up to VIP for some photo opps, then down to the ground level where the root of the crowd energy is already boiling.  What a fantastic and surprising night!  In the flow of life; some things you can’t plan.

Lianne La Havas was great live.  The tone of her voice was rich with a nice edge.  Great energy from the audience.  The stage setup was simple.  Acoustic set, good songs with strong lyrics and a powerful voice.  The entire concert hall was singing along.  It’s good to know that pure music from someone’s heart without all the gimics is still appreciated.  I am inspired by tonight’s show.  Can’t wait to write more songs for my project and with other talented artists.

Talking to Love – Written with Sophie Ilys

How time flies! Show is over and now I am sitting at a small coffee counter overlooking 43rd Street and 9th Avenue in the Big Apple. Taking a careful sip of my steamy mug, I watch thousands of shoes scurry down the worn cemented streets. Sometimes I’m amazed by the simple fact that it is so easy to pick up and leave one city for another, immersed in a brand new rhythm. It feels like a fresh start, or maybe what having a new identity would be like. All of the things that I “had to do” but didn’t have enough time to get to don’t seem as urgent when I step outside of my bubble. There are so many places I’m naturally drawn to that I know I must visit like the UK, Argentina, Peru, etc…Where do you want to go? There are definitely more adventures with my name on it. What could be waiting for you?
