Giving Back

morganlyon1

Musicians around the world do not only heal us with their music. The assumptions that celebrities are shallow, materialistic and self absorbed is just our lack of knowledge. Often they use their fortune to do good. Lana Del Rey is one of them.

Alcohol was her addiction. Music is her passion.But giving back is what is most important to her.

At the young age of 14, Lana was an alcoholic.Whilebattling her addiction. Her music got her through a lot of her struggles. You can hear the pain and heartbreak through her timid bluesy voice, and her lyrics that speak to you. She is in fact very relatable to women, no matter what caused their pain and heart break. Music does heal, but she wanted more than that.

It has never been about the fame. Once she overcame her addiction, charity became her work of choice. Being a celebrity gives people…

Who Will Survive in America?

MIND ELEVATION

Poem here says, Comment #1
Uh, Comment #2 is dynamite
But Comment #1 is the one we decided
To use here this evening
Because it makes a comment if you listen
Closely on what is now being advertised
In East Harlem as the “Rainbow Conspiracy” – a combination of
The Students For A Democratic Society
The Black Panthers, and the Young Lords
And this is my particular comment about that conspiracy, “Comment #1”:

The time is in the street you know
Us living as we do upside down
And the new word to have is revolution
People don’t even want to hear the preacher spill or spiel
Because God’s hole card has been thoroughly piqued
And America is now blood and tears instead of milk and honey
The youngsters who were programmed
To continue fucking up woke up one night
Digging Paul Revere and Nat Turner as the good guys…

Kimie Miner

As you all may know, the music industry isn’t the easiest to deal with. So, when I stumble upon an independent artist, I really do make sure I get the word out as much as possible.

Meet Kimie Miner, an independent Hawaiian artist giving you nothing but good vibes and happy thoughts with her new debut, self-titled album.

This beauty starts off the album just right with a song called, “Bottom of a Rainbow” and it is just glorious. She continues to give you that sunny morning, on top of a mountain over looking a coastal city wake up vibe throughout the entire album and you can’t help but smile through the whole album. She makes you feel like you’re in the booth with her in Hawaii. Ms. Miner is nothing to mess with and you will agree when you listen to her.

You can sample her music and purchase what you like at the links below. I promise, you won’t regret it.

I Wish (You Were Mine)

As I was browsing the travel blogger that inspired me to do what makes me happy (Smiley), I heard the song she had posted on her site and immediately fell in love. It took all of five minutes to find the artist. He is an unsigned/independent artist that goes by the name of Ánders. His Soundcloud may only have two songs on there, but the impact is beautiful. I highly recommend we continue to follow this artist on his musical impact on the world. I am sure his journey will be worth the watch. You can also go like his Facebook page. This guy isn’t just a basic artist, he stands for important subjects at hand. Check out his website and see for yourself.
