#LaBodega #QuarantineTalk

SO. What is your Name? where are you from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?

CO. My name is Coast , I’m from New Brunswick NJ, Exit 9🧬 and man, just the energy that comes off of music . You can really lose yourself in some lyrics and I just want the world to hear my story.

SO. Who and/or what inspires you to create?

CO. Well it all started with my boy Losey back in high school, that’s when I decided i’m really try this out , and it’s just advanced to the point that I’m at now .

SO. How would you describe your sound?

CO. Unique definitely, I don’t chase after flows , I try to be original with every drop. Holding onto a flow get stagnant after awhile , and I’m the Coast i gotta keep the wave movin’ !

SO. What is your creative process like?

CO. Definitely magical , I can sit for hours writing music like I can spend hours fixing my car , just simply throwing on a beat on , free-styling , if I say something I like I’ll write it down and base my next lyrics off that

SO. What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

CO. Mans 100% Lil Uzi, been waiting for years and I know it’ll happen , after that definitely 2KBABY, Me and Jack Harlow would make a killer record for a fact.

SO. What is one message you would give to your supporters?

CO. I definitely see and love all ya, weather it’s 3 of you or a million my love will forever be the same towards ya💕

SO. What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?

CO. Shiiiiii, I can low-key kill some stand up but they not ready for that yet 👀 and definitely act 😖🤣

SO. What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?

CO. Probably a mechanic , or something along the lines of that .

SO. Who are some artists/people you admire and why?

CO. J Cole definitely has taught me a lot , I used to bump his stuff everyday before school and it’ll give a nice lil mind-space bubble from everyone else

SO. What is the best advice you’ve been given?

CO. Kill every mic you touch. That’s all.

SO. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

CO. The dirty side of it . There’s money for everyone , seeing as in people get 5 Million just for a video call. Yet there’s people struggling to pay rent that are meaningful to society, not a hated “icon” . But who am I to judge , they “made it” right?

SO. What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

CO.I’m going to Disney land! Sike nahhh, get my family good . Nice crib out by no one , not a problem in sight straight living life . Touring constantly, interacting with fans , getting people homes that live on the streets, simply makin’ the world a better place for my kids to live in.

SO. What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?

CO. @itscoast_ is my Instagram ya , thank you for taking the time to read a lil part of my story! Stick around for the rest 💕🧬

Witty Releases “Co-Pilot” featuring Mishon

Wittie Hughes known as Witty is a bilingual artist and actress from San Francisco CA. Born and raised in such a diverse and cultural city she was fortunate to attend a Chinese immersion school where she learned to speak Cantonese young and interpreted it into music to form her own image and unique artistry. She fell in love with music and acting at a young age writing her first song at the age of 7. She grew up influenced by gilr groups and boy bands such as Destiny’s Child and NSync particularly admiring Left Eye of TLC and Kylie from 3LW.

You can hear the R&B influenced lyrical flow in her latest single “Co Pilot” which features R&B singer songwriter Mishon.  “Co-Pilot” is a glimpse into the modern day Bonnie and Clyde. It reflects on what today’s generation would consider a ryde or die to be.

[New Mixtape] Ferris Mueller – Juice Tape 2 [Hosted by DJ Waffles]

The animation in Ferris Mueller’s voice when he lays his vocals on a track hits you right along with the southern draw from his South Carolina accent. He has a way of painting a picture over the snares and drums that will make you go searching your national news channels for the latest current events. Mueller’s character is expressive as he sets a vibe that is quirky and fun while touching the soul-less. With influences from the likes of Andre 3000, Kurt Cobain, and Lil Wayne, he has regurgitated their characteristics into his sound. We can expect some of these tunes on his new project Big Juice, produced by DJ Waffles. Fans can listen to Juice Tape 2 by Ferris Mueller hosted by DJ Waffles. This combination is like Lebron James and AD. These compliment each other so well on this project as Ferris demolishes every single beat on this project. Just go check it out and you be the judge. #OnJuice

#LaBodega #QuarantineTalk

SO. What are your Names? where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?

GFM. CJ, Maggie, and LuLu.  We’re from Jacksonville, FL.  We are all sisters, and our parents wanted us to take music lessons for 2 years. They said if we hated it, we could quit, but we all ended up loving music.  We played our first show when Lu was maybe 7, Maggie was 10 or 11, and CJ was 12.  We were all on spring break, and on the way home, we told our parents we wanted to perform for the rest of our lives.

SO. Who and/or what inspires you to create?

GFM. We honestly inspire each other, We learn from each other and consistently grow with each other. We also are inspired by our fans and their stories and how much they have overcome. We try to take inspiration from everything we can. 

SO. How would you describe your sound?

GFM. We are beauty-core!  It’s a mashup of pop, punk, metal, rock; it’s got a little bit of everything!  We love the heavy breakdowns, riffs, and screams, but we also love a good melody.  Our sound is very “in-your-face” in a positive way.

SO. What is your creative process like?

GFM. It’s different every time. Sometimes, inspiration just strikes, and you’re rapid-fire bouncing ideas off of each other and writing them down as fast as possible.  Other times, we like to start with a theme or idea, and we write a song that encompasses those factors. 

SO. What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

GFM. We’d love to collaborate with artists like Lights, Marshmello, A Day To Remember, BTS, Babymetal there’s too many to name haha.

SO. What is one message you would give to your supporters?

GFM. Never give up. You are so much stronger than you may realize.  Life can be very hard sometimes, and it’s so important to reach out if you need help. Reach out to us; we try to always be available. You can get through this, and you do matter.

SO. What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?

GFM. We are actually all pretty good cooks, and we’re pretty good at playing video games. We can sew pretty well, and we’re getting good at penpalling/letter writing.  We’re pretty open about our lives with our fans though, so there’s not much they don’t know haha.

SO. What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?

GFM. We’d all still be in school haha. 

SO. Who are some artists/people you admire and why?

GFM. Lacey Sturm because she is the woman who let us know that girls can scream too.  Not to be cheesy, but we really admire our parents as well because of how hard working they are and how much they have and continue to support us.

SO. What is the best advice you’ve been given?

GFM. Be your own biggest cheerleader, celebrate the small things, and don’t burn bridges.

SO. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

GFM. We want more women involved!  Our goal with beauty-core is to encourage more women and young girls to join the music industry. 

SO. What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

GFM.W e’ve got new releases, and new shows on the way. Because there were so many cancellations this year, we’re planning on being on the road for a long time next year. 2021 is going to be big.

SO. What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you? 

GFM. Everything is @thegfmband.  It’s super easy to find us; our website is even www.thegfmband.com, and it has all the links to our social media pages as well.  If you’re looking to find us on any digital download/streaming site, search Gold Frankincense & Myrrh.

[Single] StaJe – Keisha

StaJe – Keisha Produced by Tailor Made Productions
https://youtu.be/N3Farf2PTec

Rumor has it that labels are all lining up for the sensational singer-rapper StaJe! With a writer’s background, the artist has embedded his name in the industry as a ghostwriter. Many of our favorite artists have used his expertise to maximize their musical reach with impactful storytelling and crafty punchlines. Now that StaJe has timed his presence in the game as a genuine bonafide artist, his fans couldn’t be more excited. After StaJe released his groundbreaking chart topping single “Keisha” many said that he was the next crossover star. It’s rare to have his combination of skills and dedication as a singer or rapper and not get noticed. Sources tell us that A&Rs from major record labels have reached out to the rising star to get him on board with their label. StaJe has committed himself to stay independent until the time is right. With today’s music mostly being lucrative from streaming plays he has grown a favorable amount of fans in a short amount of time. His most recent release “Redlight, features Elle Loraine, lead actress in the show “Insecure” as well as “boomerang”.  Goddi, Watts native rapper, struck almost 100k streams on its release date. His highly anticipated single “Jimmy Choos” was released May 22nd. It’s hard to imagine that an artist so skilled with a broad range of diversity would still maintain being an independent artist. Will it be Sony? Will it be Interscope? Atlantic Records? Or Universal? Whichever label he ends up on will have an extremely talented artist. We can’t wait to see what happens. Until then we will be waiting for his next release. Stream, download, and request “Keisha” on your local radio station. Be on the lookout for breakout star StaJe. You can follow him on his InstagramSpotify, and iTunes.
