ARTIST OF THE WEEK – godAWFUL

Every once in a while I get an album that makes me step back and say “whoa, this guy (or woman) is really good.” It happened most recently when I first heard godAWFUL’s Songs In The Key of Awful Vol. 1. A seriously talented emcee and producer, godAWFUL has all the skills and personality one could hope for in an artist and is potentially one of the few emcees who could really make a big impact coming out of Connecticut. When he’s not writing or recording, godAWFUL says he can be found in places that feature “good vibes, strong beverages and pretty women,” and while I couldn’t find a place quite like that to interview him, I did catch up with him this week to find out more about his music, why he has no problem spending time in the Penalty Box, and what he considers God awful.  For Full Article visit Adam’s World Blog...

In Addition to the article, I had a chance to sit down with godAwful and throw together a podcast with him co-hosting and featuring a TON of music off his new album ‘godAwful Music’ which you can download FOR FREE, HERE, or click the link below…

R.I.P!!! DARE (TWS) Germany!!!!

While perusing sites a while back I noticed that THE most influential writer to my development as a writer myself has sadly passed away from cancer.  I cannot express how much this man helped me to shape how I drew and saw what I wanted my pieces to look like in my head, I can only imagine how many others are like me…My Hat’s off to you sir for being a TRUE original, moment of silence please…Please check the link HERE for a really cool Montage Video and short paragraph about the man Sigi von Koeding aka DARE.

OK cool, now let’s get down to checking out how AAAAAMAZING DARE was.  You’ll see why I choose to bite this guy to create my style…

Now, onward and upward with this week’s edition of Artist of the Week, so thoughtfully provided by the good folks over at Adam’s World Blog…This week features none other thaaaaannnn, Ukulele playing rapper Jon Braman…aaawwww snap!!!

A couple months ago I was at an event in the city when a friend of a friend started telling me about Jon Braman. Now, bear in mind, I hear a lot of people telling me about a lot of artists, so it takes something really interesting to get my attention. As soon as she said Braman was a rapper who played the ukulele, getting my attention was no longer an issue. After what seemed like dozens of missed opportunities to check out Braman’s work, his album, Climatastrophunk, finally arrived in my mailbox. Really interested in knowing if combining the ukulele and hip-hop could work, I put it on. It was an oddly perfect marriage, at least with Braman at the helm. His lyrics are meaningful, and at times downright beautiful, and his vibe matches those qualities perfectly. Braman describes some of the inspiration behind his music, saying “being able to sing out your fears as well as your hopes and dreams is a pretty good feeling.” This week I caught up with Jon Braman to find out more about the man, his music, and what exactly a Climatastrophunk is.
