Music video director, Vashtie Kola

Music video director, Vashtie Kola, has been challenging the standards of video directing for quite some time. By using visuals rather than words, she has opened up our minds wide enough to see the whole picture. Vashtie’s images reveal what others are fearful of showing and her stories are directed flawlessly. Pushing herself and those around her to the limits, Vashtie has always proven that there is more to see outside the box then in. more…

Jennah Bell

About a month ago, I wrote an article about an up-and-coming musician named Jennah Bell. She was currently preparing for her first Music Matters performance for the 2012 BET Awards and finishing up her education at the Berklee School of Music. Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with Bell about her love for music, first BET performance, and her determination to believe in herself.

I can guarantee you that this young lady is on her way to stardom and has her mind focused on success. But hey, don’t take my word for it.

Find out for yourself…. more…

Phony Ppl

Brooklyn, New York has birthed some of the most legendary artists known to the music world, and now somewhere in between the mix of Hip-Hop, Soul and Funk lies one of its new-bred creations, Phony Ppl. A contemporary band comprised of young spirits and wise and innovative minds whose pioneering talent is massively appearing on the biggest music networks, blogs and tours. I sat down with Elbee Thrie, Temi O, and Ian Bakerman, one-third of the nine-piece band at Brooklyn’s Trout Studios to find out more about Phony Ppl.

Unlike many musicians who begin performing during childhood, singer/songwriter SiloamPool did not discover her talents until she was an adult.

During this time, she had the opportunity to sit it on singer, Fred Hammond’s rehearsal, which eventually led to her going on tour with him. This experience inspired SiloamPool to pursue her dream and record her first album! more…

Azealia Banks

Female rappers often come a dime a dozen. It seems that there can only be a few successful women in rap music at one time. 21-year-old rapper, Azealia Banks is catapulting this notion into the distant stratosphere.  The “Slow Hands” singer, is garnering fans worldwide through her explicit, unapologetic lyrics and techno beats. Difficult to categorize, Banks does not try to mold herself after other women in the music industry nor does she try to be someone she is not. “I’m not trying to sell myself,” she told more…

And that is exactly what producer, Hit-Boy does for his listeners — he creates the beats that flows in tune with the lyrics. Hit-Boy finds the hidden sounds in music that help create the songs that become universal anthems. more…

Theophilus London

Hip-Hop is an evolutionary creation. It sporadically evolves as the world around it races to keep up with it. Constantly swallowing up those artists that don’t move fast enough, Hip-Hop is truly a force to be reckoned with. So when Brooklyn Native, Theophilus London, fought his way out of the belly of the beast, people were shocked by what he was bringing to the table. more…
