No Resolution for 2015

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you've had a safe and delightful transition into 2015, mine was awesome, I played a benefit concert to help raise money for The Vegan Living Program, the same program that helped me transition into my beautiful,  peaceful Vegan life style :)

One thing that happens every year is the whole Resolution thing, personally I'm not a fan of this, it has never worked, at least for me. You don't have to Change yourself every year, that is just exhausting,  and un-effective. I'd rather improve on what I already have, or even just make a minor adjustment, I found that to work much better.

A good way to do this is reflect on the accomplishments of the past year, and use that as a building block for this shiny new one. I'm proud of many things I've done in 2014, most notably is the release of my 3 year concept album "NOVELLA : a love letter to culture clash", getting it reviewed in Canada, Qatar, Baltimore, and even a Sudan/San Francisco blog. 

Also having a song in the award-winning indie film "Faisal Goes West" which opened up the very FIRST Independent film festival in Sudan's film history, and on a personal level becoming Vegan and doing the FAWM song-writing challenge for the first time.

So why would I willing want to "resolute" anything for the new year, instead I'm going to build on these great accomplishments I've already made. I will be more involved in the Vegan community,  and will do my best to use my love for technology and songwriting to bring forth more music to all my beloved supporters.

This is of course just my humble opinion and approach to the new year, if resolutions work for you, then by all means go for it. But if you've noticed a pattern of them not being so effective in the past, then I would recommend to not resolute, and simply enjoy the new year. Feel free to try something entirely different and let me know if that worked for you.
Look out 2015, here we come :)

Selenophilia

I love it when I learn new words, my new favorite one is Selenophilia.
You have no idea how excited I was to learn that this word existed! It basically means "A Love of the moon", which would make me a Selenophile "(n) a person who loves the moon".
How freakin cool is that!!?

I have always had a healthy obsession with the moon, I never knew why, and I never questioned it. I've just always found comfort in sitting or standing, and stare at the moon. It always clams me down.
In my desert culture, the Moon is used as a symbol of beauty many times, and as you may ha
ve heard in many of my songs, I use the moon quite often in my writing.

The cool thing is, I learned about this word, just as I had finished writing a new song called "Sahara Moon", of course. So this new exciting discovery lead me down a moonlight rabbit hole, and now I'm working on a 5 song EP of love songs that are moon themed.
Needless to say the word "Selenophilia" makes it …

Bandcamp \\ vs // Patreon

As you may have heard, Bandcamp has recently launched a "Subscription" service for their artist and their supporters. The main idea is for fans/supports of an artist, would "Subscribe" to him/her. By doing so the supporter would pay a monthly charge to the artist through Bandcamp, and in return they get 1st dibs on new songs, and even exclusive material.
The new music is automatically ready for streaming on your Bandcamp App, and you would even have the option to download it if you like. There is even an option to give Subscribers a discount on other merch, and you can of course make your whole back catalog available as well.

Patreon has been doing a similar thing for a while now, but with Patreon its open for more than just music. Its for "Artists" in general. And I have to say, I do tend to find more Webcomic and Digital Artists using Patreon. I also see a lot of Video content creators on there as well, and some "Audio" artist.

I'm sure th…

Closer to the moon

Great News friends.
 I can officially say, that I have finished recording my "Lunaverse" album, woho. It took a while and I apologize, but a few things have come up on the way. I moved resting palces (but still in Baltimore area), I co-produced Janice B.'s latest album "Mantra" with Maurice of StinkyFace Music, I'm also learning some new Tech skills, like how to program in Python, and Web Development for a side project I'm working on.

Also I think I like this image to be used in some way for the album.
Its an photo taken of the Supermoon, from Baltimore, by my good friend Rob Hinkal of ilyAIMY , which I think appropriate since this moon album was created in Baltimore, it'll be a full circle type of thing.

Alright, I just wanted to share the good news with you all.
I'll be back soon with more updated.
Big hugs, and much love.


When you have a chance, go be creative today.
