Inspiration comes in many ways, shapes, and forms. From happiness that comes from a positive occurrence in your life like meeting the love of your life, to bad breaks ups and everything in between. Even the weather affects your mood and creativity. Like the clouds this morning in Chicago. (I actually enjoy them.) Happenstance is […]

We Welcome "The Gifted" – Wale

Many words have been used to describe him. Poet, deep, witty, versatile, prolific, lyrical genius, underrated, unmatched, ambitious, multi-talented, driven, etc… But all those can easily be summed up by the title of his third studio album, “The Gifted”, which has topped the charts all summer and has received critical acclaim.

You know, just in case… You never know when you’re going to have that dramatic cinematic moment during the course of your day, where, whether planned or unplanned, you’re going to do something absolutely breathtaking.

What drummer first got you paying attention to drummers?

The answer to this question is easy. Animal from the Muppets of course… As soon as I saw this madman pounding his mini drum kit I was mesmerized by his “caraaaazy”! He was the type of Muppet that marched to his own beat, played the drums with abandon, as if no one was watching, and […]

How did you get into Artist Relations?

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Chicago to immigrant parents from Mexico who love a good fiesta. Almost all my early memories are filled with those of family parties. Baptisms, birthdays, saint’s days, First Communions, Confirmations, Quinceñeras, weddings, barbecues at random forest preserves and at Lake Michigan after my dad’s baseball […]

Mike Posner @ the House of Blues – Chicago

Yesterday I got a chance to interview Shure Endorser Mike Posner in one of the prayer rooms in the Foundation Room of the House of Blues in Chicago. If you have never been, upon entering the room it feels like your transported somewhere Zen in Asia. The atmosphere is very tranquil and the attention to detail in the decorations […]

Ozomatli @ House of Blues (Chicago)

The first time I ever heard Ozomatli was in 1998. I was sick in bed with a migraine. My migraines, when I get them, tend to be pretty severe. So painful that I have to literally lock myself in a dark room and shut out all outside noise. For some reason, that day, the TV in […]
