Thankful Days :: Virgil Wolfe And Punk With A Camera Visually Express ‘Gratitude’

Virgil Wolfe brought the musical vision, Punk With A Camera brought what it took to capture the vision in music video form, and Rib Fest Records helped make it all possible.  The result is a testimonial style slice of life in the form of Gratitude, where we find Wolfe reflecting on all things big and small worth pointing out, because all of this shaped him into the man he is today.  Punk With A Camera helps make everything easy to relate to, keeping the environments grounded rather than forcing Wolfe to posture like someone he is not.  These are the kind of videos that both resonate good vibes and help you unlock your ability to do the same.  Give it a like, a share and a comment, and keep supporting your favorite indie creators.

Heavy Hearts :: Conwaythewhale Stops By KTSW 89.9 Studio C Sessions

Evolution is a natural part of dedicated creation.  Take Conwaythewhale, for example.  Upon their inception, the band was just a duo, albeit a powerful one.  Due to life circumstances and other creative obligations, what started as a raw musical confessional turned into a full-fledged power packed sonic testimonial, backed by a traditional full band.  What has not changed, however, is the cutting honesty and pure emotion of singer/songwriter Justin Conway.  The band stopped by KTSW 89.9‘s acclaimed Studio C Sessions recently, and their performance of John Locke was extremely touching, especially for those of us that have spent any time over the last 5 years or so in the San Marcos area.  Check it out, share it around, and be sure to give it a like and/or leave a comment.  Support college radio and local artists!

Viral Vibes :: Shelly Knicks Drops ‘Internet Rapper’ Video

Texas-based hip-hop artist Shelly Knicks packs a powerful punch in just under 2 minutes with his latest single, Internet Rapper.  The song is a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek look at how the internet can skew perspectives and inflate egos in subtle but powerful ways.  The video has a slightly off-kilter vibe to it with the color grading used, the computer style text and word bubbles, and even the meme-like behavior conveyed by Knicks and crew.  The video is a dope one for sure, so give it that like, share and comment treatment it deserves.

Gaining Momentum :: Old Man Skateboards (OMS) Drops ‘SINCE BIRTH’ Skate Part

Old Man Skateboards (OMS) creator Jansen Newcum has been using his passion for improving his skating skill as inspiration to better himself in other areas.  One of the areas that has been instantly noticeable is his skill as a filmer and an editor.  From innovating a one person, two board technique to becoming a legitimate filmer of other skaters, everything has been trending upwards.  Girl Skateboards recently announced a short film contest, and Jansen jumped at the opportunity.  With a little help from friends Miguel Marrufo and Chris Jones (plus a beat assist from himself), the old man at Old Man Skateboards created something to be truly proud of.  Like, share, leave a comment, and keep your eyes open for more dope content.

Creative Vision :: Deleigh Hermes In Focus At #GirlCrew Collective’s ‘Women Crush Wednesday’

As long as I’ve known Deleigh Hermes, I’ve known her to have a camera in hand and a smile on her face.  She has a natural curiosity about and attraction to the world around her, and many years with a camera has allowed her to cultivate the skills to capture what she sees and present it in her stunning photography.  #girlcrew collective recently sat down to talk with her about her work and her approach, and it may inspire you to chase your dreams when you take a look.
