Hello! First of all - more than half of you are new subscribers from Noisetrade so thanks for joining me on my art and music journey! For those of you who have been with me for a while now, thanks for sticking around <3
I had a taste of both negative and positive publicity this month with a feature in Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle July Magazine and the premier of ‘Keep Me Up’ in Immersive ATL, I released a new series of abstracts called ‘Love Potions’ at Markay Gallery, and I’m playing at Eddie’s Attic at the end of the month.

WHAT I LEARNED FROM MY FIRST PUBLIC CRITICISM -
In the last few months I turned my attention towards music production. ’BLUE’ released in April and my new single ‘Keep Me Up’ premiered with Immersive Atlanta last week.
The premier was scheduled on a day when I was collaborating on a project with other people, so as soon as I saw that Immersive published the song, I shared it without reading. When I had a moment to myself, I skimmed through, equally horrified and confused. Had I forgotten about some terrible thing I did to this writer that they were now retaliating for? I had never even met them. I knew Immersive as a blog that used their platform to uplift and highlight local acts, rather than tear them down, so I wasn’t really prepared to see my words twisted that way.
After texting my bffs to tell them I wasn’t tough enough for the music business, and the necessary pep talks, I decided to write a letter to the editor.
Letter to the Editor
I came away from the experience with the realization that my community (you all) are so incredibly supportive and I'm so honored to be making music for you. Thanks for reminding me.
Don't forget to listen to the song!
