Austin-based hip-hop artist Hyder is clearly here to raise the bar of what both an artist and an artistic statement can be. The former poet turned MC is obviously comfortable taking on topics with weight, as he exhibits in Farewell by effortlessly espousing on the trials and tribulations we face from within and without as we attempt to navigate an often stressful and trying world. The raw honesty captured in both the song and the video are moving, and the high quality of the video heightens the entire experience. Definitely check this one out, like and comment on it, and share it around.

2019 promises to be an exciting year for many creatives, myself included. Exhibit A : John Valley and his debut feature film, Duncan. After a successful crowdfunding campaign via Seed&Spark, Valley and crew shot the film, and going into festival season, it appears we may have something in the works that could potentially make some noise. Working on this project was a blast, and I’m honored to be a part of it in any capacity. Stay tuned to Duncan on your favorite form of social media, and be there when this one hits, because it feels like it’s going to hit big.
I recently stumbled across the music video for Reflect, the latest single by Tåsi, and was struck by the artistic quality of the images, and how perfectly they matched the well crafted song by Tåsi and his producer Malekhino. The entire affair has a cinematic quality to it, like a Bergman or Altman film with a camera that resembles a spirit moving. The feel matches what Tåsi speaks about in terms of introspection, taking personal inventory, and as the title states, reflection on your journey. Definitely a gem worth spreading around… and be sure to leave a like and a comment when you do share it.
