Love it, or hate it? The Irony of Beyonce’s Album Release + Rolling Stone Tests R. Kelly

Danielle W Carter at The Boys & Girls Club Charity Art Event, Santa Monica

Have a great weekend!  

Do you love it, or hate it?  Hot topics…

  • NBC’s Californians  A blast from the past for a little chuckle!  Ever had a conversation about traffic in the Los Angeles?  CLICK HERE for a “knee slapper.”  
  • Beyonce’s album release is all the rage because she DID NOT promote it.  She let everyone else do the talking starting at 12AM on Friday the 13th.  As a major artist not promoting your album is a big deal!
  • The irony is that indie artists have been dropping albums with no promotion for decades with no comparable press reaction.  As an emerging artist, is it possible to top that release?  It has yet to be seen but we can focus on making quality music and letting it go viral online.
  • What If You Don’t Like Beyonce’s Album?”  Basically,  you’ll be hooked once you watch the videos and take a second listen.  The buzz and sales growth of this album is undeniable, especially in this evolving music climate.
  • R. Kelly sings about dolphins and sub sandwiches on the spot in this Rolling Stone interview Improvises “Sex Dolphin,” “Italian Hero Sandwich of Love” Parental Discretion Advised  
  • There are some things in life that you just can’t take too seriously.  At the end of the day, life should be fun!  Love the process.  R. Kelly (no matter how you feel about him today) finds the fun in improvising.  He is given four random topics to write about on the spot.  A reminder that there are no rules.

As many of you know, we are in the studio making the first studio album!  So grateful to everyone who joined VIP thus far to support and help make this happen!  We are uncovering a unique fusion of sound for the Dani W Project, including Funk Rock, Hip Pop, and more.  Excited to share this project with you!

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!

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?

I have a good excuse, but I’m Doing It Anyway!

See you tomorrow, Saturday, March 16th at the Pig n Whistle show in Hollywood! Doors open at 8:30pm. My band is on at 10pm. New songs just for you! Other acts include hip hop and comedy. See Events for upcoming shows!

I am taking on the 30-day challenge to “Sweat for Change.” Don’t worry you don’t have to sweat a drop. I will be taking hot yoga at Moshka Yoga in LA and NYC for 30 days straight.

The goal is to raise $10 per day for Little Kids Rock which empowers children and supports music education. Please join me in providing more activities and creative outlets for our young minds.

I found out about this while attending a free class at Moshka Yoga LA. It was tempting to say no thanks, I’m traveling in April to the east coast. But I love supporting the next generation of innovators and thinkers…plus it forces me to workout with a purpose…and they have bicoastal studios. Shucks! No excuses for me! I’m doing it anyway.

Challenge begins on: Friday, March 15 Challenge ends on: Saturday, April 13, 2013
