Prodigal Prodigy :: Nosaprise Returns With ‘Vamanos’

Screenshot_1

There are artists that are able to step away from the spotlight for a while, but are never truly gone.  Houston-based visionary Nosaprise is definitely one of those artists.  As his musical career was beginning to take off, Nosaprise suddenly found inspiration in several other aspects of his life that required immediate attention.  After yoga afforded him an opportunity to travel the world, and after successfully beginning a family, Nosaprise was able to bring all of that worldly knowledge gained back to his musical craft.  His music was always compelling, but now there is a growth and a depth to it that only awareness of the larger world and larger consciousness can bring… with his latest single Vamanos he is bravely experimental, bold in his statements, and thought-provoking in his delivery.  Hopefully this is just a taste of what lies ahead for Nosaprise, as his return is very welcome.

Time Lines:: Clova And NVision Films Bring ‘Ever Since’ To Life

Austin-based, Houston-bred hip-hop creative Clova recently joined forces with Eric Sattler of NVision Films to breathe life into the song Ever Since.  The song, a testimonial to having faith in yourself and chasing your dreams despite what others may think or say, is perfectly embodied by parallel lines of action : a confident young man finding himself, and an artist comfortable enough in his own skin to be in the moment and reflect.  Props to all parties involved for creating yet another standout music video in a year of Austin killing the music video game.

It’s So True :: Nosaprise And Kam Franklin School You On “Hot Nights”

I’ve known Nosaprise for close to ten years… friends of friends.  He’s always continued to amaze me at his ability to both push the boundaries of his creativity and his comfortability zone.  Never one to have a mundane, repetitive sound, Nosa recently released a new video for Hot Nights.  Featuring some beautiful vocals by Kam Franklin of The Suffers, and some stellar directing by Apollo Stackwell, it is well worth the watch.  Check out Nosaprise during SXSW 2012 this Saturday at Malaia on 6th, 8:00pm.
