Creative Development

Charm Rose Brand

Breaking away from what happened, and how I was feeling, became a struggle in my life. I am glad to be strong, to be fearful, and be able to breathe.

Sometimes, you must understand that love will center you in every movement. The truth, people did not understand what I was going through, people did not understand what I was feeling. But being able to walk away from the trauma became my biggest fight.

For 10 years, I did not know who I was, or who I wanted to be. I was being pulled upon situations within my ex-friend’s acts, and I did not want to relive what I went through.

Being able to turn 30 in a few months and being able to restart my life. I am blessed by God to not suffer those horrific memories upon their acts. I am blessed by God to not think about my life being swept through the drain.

Within their eyes, I was not respected nor loved. Within their voice, I was nothing but a joke, and somebody who they believed, they had the right to embarrass in front of others. Within their views, I was not given much opportunity to be human and myself.

But the greatest part about reaching out and finally breaking through. Being able to develop my strength, mindset, and soul.

I am thankful to be around people who appreciate and admire me as a human. I am thankful to be around people who fill me with positivity and love. I am thankful to be around a school that believes in my education and a dean that is willing to get me on the right track. I am thankful to have counselors that are helping me fight through what happened. I am thankful for having a part-time job that helps me raise money to finish my classes. Since my financial aid got cut off due to the acts of my ex-friend who dehumanized me and made my semesters a living hell.

I am thankful to be transformative and relive the creative woman I was back then.

I am thankful to work on my health and be able to work on losing weight.

The many reasons, I wake up with happiness, the many reasons I wake up with love. The many I wake up and recognize the horrific events are over.

Would I ever want to invite my ex-friends back into my life?

They are not anything worth fighting, I am centered in a good position and working on graduating next year with my bachelor and diploma as an administrative assistant.

Moving forward, I rather build myself and transform into a creative woman. I rather learn and evolve within knowledge, activities, and be able to work in an actual job. I want to work on developing the company that I dreamed about when I was 20 years old. I want to be with somebody who is worth being my hero, and supporting me as I work hard for a brighter dream.

That’s the greatest gift about creative development

Finding yourself and the key to love

Artistic Roots Through Performance

Artistic Roots Through Performance
As a young artist, did you ever dream of performing on stage. Did you ever dream of a new world?
That is the concept of life and powering your voice through a product. It is a root of our ambition; it is a root of our love.
Performing on stage is a gift, and empowering our souls through music, its an experience we will never doubt.
When you sing, do you feel like a Rockstar? When you dance, do you rock like Whitney Houston? When you play the drums, electric base, or even a guitar, do you imagine your own world.
Performing on stage is a gift, and you do not have to be nervous. Yes, it will catch you by surprise. But if you make your dream happen. Nothing else will fall out of place.

As an artist, your roots are clear, and the nerve is nothing but a distraction. When you perform on stage, do not think of the fear. Do not think of the audience. Do not even think of what might happen.
When you perform, you are the key, and balance within the show. Never forget why you are here!
You are on stage as to make dreams
Happen

Thank you

World Of Management In The Music Industry

World of Management in The Music Industry

Your dreams are an ambition, your voice is a performance upon guidance and diligence. Every artist has a right to go after their dreams and be able to make a statement.

But as an artist comes responsibilities.

What do I mean by responsibilities?

Sales, Tickets, Concerts, Promotion, Advertisements, Social Media.

Yes, an artist can work on their own. But sometimes, you need a backup team as to succeed upon the road of dreams.

That is why you need management and a team of professionals that can give you an edge within the world of market. The greatest part about management, they can understand your vision, and being able to expand your brand upon where you wanna be.

You can understand that the world of dreams is a long road as you start your career within music. You can understand that the world of dreams comes with much duration within your skin.

But the greatest vision about management, they can construct the background. While you are representing your brand and style. That is the greatest part about The Music Industry, you have a team of people who are supporting your dream upon a standard foundation.

Responsibilities upon Management

  • Working with agencies upon contract between the organization, networks, and artist.

  • Interviews and audition to scout potential clients.

  • Work with artist upon marketing plans and tours.

  • Stable communication between the artist

  • Work with networking upon negotiation between cost that represents the artist.

  • Cost and fees within travels, tours, promotion, etc.

  • Marketing and advertising activities.

  • Negotiate with promoters and agents.

  • Work with equipment and facilities.

  • Book interviews, coaches, and trainers

  • Bookkeeping and financial obligation.

As a manager, you have a lot of responsibilities, and you must be serious within the Music Industry. But as an artist, you must work with management and agents as to succeed towards the next level. You want to be performing, work with the big guns, be advertised on the famous platforms, movies and tv industries, networks and big representation, tours, and a big audience.

Listen, the work is not easy, but if you trust the manager and their duties. You will achieve your dreams in every way. Yes, you will go far doing it on your own. But as an artist, you need a manager that is going to be able to push upon the hard work.

I am going to be real

If you work with the Music Industry, GIVE THEM RESPECT AND UNDERSTAND THEIR CONCEPT TOWARDS YOUR BRAND.

Open Words to Management

If you are a manager and you are working with artist. You need to have an open communication between you and the artist. You need to be able to understand their vision, and not a change who they are. Every artist has a brand that is unique and open. Every artist has a vision of how they see upon transformation.

Management, work with the vision, and be able to strategies upon how you are going to make this work. Are you going to give the artist a direction? Are you going to implement your ideas as to stabilizing a proper turn? Are you going to work with the brand and movement? Where will you invest upon a profit and expense? How will you bring the audience and be able to book the performance?

Work with artist and enhance their vision. The key to music is being able to find a balance and taking advantage of the market within innovation.

Within the Music Industry, an artist needs direction, and moderation within its center. I can understand how challenging your work can be as an artist. But if you push and make the wave clear. You are the manager with a vision, and I am proud of your SUCCESS.

Alright, lets get back to business.

Where do you get discovered within Management?

As an artist, you will come across opportunities, and you need management as to guide your progress. Managers will come to you when they see your potential.

So where do managers scout potential clients.

  • Concerts
  • Competitions
  • Radios
  • Auditions
  • Showcases
  • Social Media
  • Artist Management submissions
  • Bars & Venues
  • Live gigs
  • And others

Within the World of management, there are many opportunities. All you got to do is spread your wing and act upon your ambitious love of music.

How do you know if a manager is legit?

Here are some procedures:

  • Degree in Music Business, or experience in the music industry
  • A business with awards and a list of clients that have succeeded within the music industry.
  • Understanding of the Music industry and the background (Ask questions)
  • Legal business, card, and a detail plan for your career.

Understand the process

  • Do not sign anything without a lawyer or attorney present.
  • Management agreement within Contract, territory, and compensation
  • Agreement in verbal and writing
  • Both parties within management and the artist should be on the same page.

Bad Management

  • A manager who wants to meet late at night and has an act that is not legitimate.
  • Drunk, lazy, not focus. Be Careful
  • Somebody who claims to be part of the industry, but never earned anything in the music industry.

Let me be clear, I have no experience in the Music Industry. I am working towards becoming an assistant and artist management. Right now, I am only creating a world to develop artist at this point.

So far, I gave you a bit of insight of what the Music Industry is about. I love developing artist and their potential within the Music Industry.

As an artist, you can succeed and make a commitment towards your dreams. If you understand the Music Industry and its potential. Everything will become clear and better along the way.

Every artist can succeed. But you must put in the work and make it happen. I am going to be clear, respect your people, business associates, fans, audience. Never portray a negative attitude or image.

If you take advantage of your dreams and practice every day. You will succeed

Every artist deserves a spotlight

Thank you

Mental Health Professionals

BOSTON, MA — After battling a series of lifelong mental health issues, Jack Travis went from being in and out of mental hospitals to living a happy life in less than a year. As a mental health advocate and a newly published author, his goal is to guide others along the path he had to take to recover. He started his journey on Twitter and other social media platforms, and he invites others to join him on his journey.

Jack Travis is a mental health advocate, an author, a modern day philosopher, and a millennial entrepreneur. He struggled with many life-long mental illnesses as a result of abuse and other traumatic experiences. With his journey he started through social media, his goal is to teach other people how to overcome their struggles and find happiness in life. Jack is working on becoming a motivational speaker, and he wishes to encourage others to join him on his journey because we are truly stronger together.

Check out Jack Travis Book

“I spent years living in a dark place with a negative outlook on life; I hated myself, and I did not feel worthy or like I mattered to anyone because of how I was treated by most people. It was as if my eyes were not only open to the bad, but also closed to the good. Once I started getting the help I needed, and making positive changes in my life, I was able to overcome my struggles. Going through the process of healing and recovery taught me a lot, and now my goal is to help others with what I’ve learned and what I’ve discovered. We’re all limited to our own knowledge, so we must be willing to broaden our horizons, learn from credible sources, and discover happier and healthier ways of life than what we are used to. After all, the harder we fall, the higher we can rise.” – Jack Travis

The freedom of Music
The freedom of music empowers our skin, the freedom of music empowers our light.

Within our ability, we are strong, we are powerful, we are brave. That’s the greatest key to the music industry. Your voice impacts in many ways.
Whether it’s a base, a guitar, a solo.

As an artist, life is an ability that can never stop, life is an ability that can race your heart like a thousand bullets.

But what does the freedom of music really mean?

Empower the stage, and let the audience be your wave. Impact the music and take charge of developing your length. I can understand it’s a challenge, I can understand it’s a progress.
But the freedom of speech is a key and an open door of a greater length.

When you’re on that stage, progress takes practice. Practice takes courage. But most importantly, being able to rise and enhance the notes within your skin.
Contribute with artist, and work on developing a project that has many views, working on specializing within practices that are enduring within innovation.

People break the rules and take a chance. As a creator, freedom is a spectrum of the living voice that combats creativity and imagination.

Take charge of your projects, take charge of your innovation, take charge of your sales, Take charge of your projection.

The freedom of music is an open space and opportunities are endless.
But as a leader
The freedom of music is your future

The Hip-Hop Community Is Stunned After A Young Rapper Died Suddenly On New Year’s Day

Lexii Alijai, 21, was a rising star from Minnesota and known for her empowering lyrics and remixes.Updated on January 2, 2020, at 6:56 p.m. ETPosted on January 2, 2020, at 6:29 p.m. ET

Minnesota rapper Lexii Alijai, best known for her remixes and collaboration with artist Kehlani, died unexpectedly, her family announced on New Year’s Day.

The 21-year-old from St. Paul, whose full name is Alexis Alijai Lynch, had cultivated acclaim and a large, loyal following with her empowering lyrics and remixes, as well as her collaborations with artists like Elle Varner.

Details about her death were not immediately released.

A spokesperson for the St. Paul Police Department told BuzzFeed News that they “do not have any reports related to Ms. Lynch.” However, the artist’s family announced the news on Facebook Wednesday, calling her sudden death “a nightmare,” and told BuzzFeed News that Lynch had died on Wednesday.

“You’ve touched so many souls,” her cousin Raeisah Clark wrote. “Heaven better be good to you cause they lucky to have you.”

While her appearance on Kehlani’s 2015 single “Jealous,” which made it onto Billboard’s Top 40 and was part of a Grammy-nominated album, cemented her as a rising hip-hop star, Lynch had been creating original music and remixes since she was young.

She was “committed and dedicated” to her music and always “knew exactly what she wanted to be,” her cousin LaMycha Jett told BuzzFeed News on Thursday.Ad

Jett, who is 10 years older than Lynch, remembers babysitting her younger cousin and said watching her move up “on her way to the top” was an amazing experience.

“She was loving, caring, sweet, humble,” Jett said. “She gave hugs all the time and her departure words were always ‘I love you.’ She had a passion for art and creating writing. Alexis is beautiful inside and out.”

In 2014, Lynch officially released her first mixtape on her 16th birthday, Super Sweet 16’s. Two years later, she performed at the Soundset Music Festival alongside artists like Kendrick Lamar, Lizzo, Post Malone, and A$AP Rocky.

Her album Joseph’s Coat “showed off her Aaliyah-meets-Allan Kingdom, sing-songy rapper style and knack for writing about family, relationships and feminism,” the Star Tribune noted. And in 2017, she debuted her first full-length, 16-track project, Growing Pains.

While still in high school, the rapper went viral by rapping over songs like Drake’s “Girls Love Beyoncé,” Dej Loaf, 2Pac, Meek Mill, and Nas. Her clips on YouTube and SoundCloud have amassed millions of plays, views, and likes.

She posted frequently on Twitter and Instagram, where she had nearly 87,000 followers combined, and was active right before she died, showing no signs that anything might be wrong. On the morning of Dec. 31, she tweeted happy birthday to David Ali, Kehlani’s manager, and later that evening shared a New Year’s memory from 2013.

“Stayin in the crib as usual on New Years…lont do parties. I hope everyone has fun, be safe!” the artist wrote years ago and then reposted on Facebook Tuesday with the praying hands emoji.

On Wednesday, fans filled her last posts with messages of hurt, shock, and remembrance. Over and over, they wrote “gone too soon.”

Also stunned by the news of her death, hip-hop artists took to social media to share emotional tributes celebrating Lynch’s talent and character, mourning the loss of a musician who was only just beginning.

In her remembrance, Kehlani posted photos of herself and the young rapper, writing how “sick,” “angry,” and heartbroken she was.

“You got my heart on the floor right now lex,” she said. “You were such a star to me because every word you spoke was true. every word you wrote was honest…You was supposed to go take over the world lex. you was supposed take home the trophies and hang the plaques up.”

Bas, a well-known Sudanese American rapper from New York, expressed his shock and sadness on Twitter. Lynch had opened for Bas last year during his Milky Way tour.

“It was an honor to know you, work with you, and be a mentor to you,” Elle Varner wrote.

According to her family, her death was sudden and unexpected. Clark, her cousin, was the first to publicly announce the news on Wednesday.

“Your a real Legend🎼 if you know her or heard her music you’d feel chills😔,” she posted on Facebook. “Rest in paradise you’ll never be forgotten!👼🏽 I’m so lost for words…my beautiful cousin with so much talent & Unique soul Lexii Alijai It’s too soon💔”

Family was “everything to her,” Jett, Lynch’s other cousin, said. She grew up surrounded by talented musicians, including her grandfather, Roger Troutman, who fronted the funk band Zapp, and her father, Roger Troutman Jr., who recorded for Capitol records. Both men died when she was a baby.

Growing up, Lynch made sure to attend family functions “when she could” and spend time with her little cousins, who adored her, Jett said.

She also loved to play basketball and write, her cousin added, but her purpose and passion was music.

“She touched so many lives through her music,” Jett said. “Alexis has a beautiful soul. She is a young legend. She knew exactly what she wanted to be.”

Transformation Period, Battling The Worst, Towards My Bright Future

IMG_20191207_130008_779.jpg

This story is a transformative period between my bad memories leading me towards good changing opportunities that made me a stronger woman.

I write the story to inspire an artist to never stop believing in their dreams and to aspire themselves to be greater than what life expects. I went through a rough road, but sometimes situations can disrupt our path. This is only part of the story, but I plan to write a book that illustrates my life within the process. I plan to illustrate a book that gives people a perspective of who Charm Rose Brand, how she combatted situations, and how she used her experience to step out of the darkness and find a better chapter that’s more bright. All of that will be indicated in the book I am writing.

BUT ANYWAYS let’s BEGIN

Every woman deserves to dream,

Every woman deserves to explore.

I don’t hide behind a bucket of tears, I don’t hide behind a bucket of misery.

But in life, we only have one chance to explore ourselves, to explore our potential and not be diminished by what people think.

I transform my image for a reason, I transform my purpose for a message.

Dealing with depression, and hits of the tragedy was a dark world that traumatized me along the way.

I couldn’t think, I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t feel anything.

I couldn’t imagine life as a one-stop dream, I couldn’t imagine memories as a gift.

I’m not gonna hide behind a face of beauty, and not understand myself.

For 10 years, I was lost, I was devastated, and given open wounds that I couldn’t handle.

So, I shaved my hair for a reason, so I shaved my hair for a purpose.

Within society, my hair became the target and attention.

Every time I wanted to speak; nobody would listen.

Every time I wanted to spend time; nobody would care.

I kept thinking of what I did, to be left in the shadows.

I was bullied and humiliated. I didn’t feel like a group of people who I believed were my friends would ever care about the person I am becoming. I was a target of a vicious and childish game of torture within the friendship.

Within this period, I cried and distance myself from the world I was living in. I lock myself in my room for a couple of months and didn’t want to be around anybody. I had a dark web within my guts, I had a dark web within my heart. All I thought about was thinking about what I could do to win this war. I didn’t want those groups of people in my life, I didn’t want those groups of people to ever be part of who I am.

So, the best solution was to walk away and discover my identity. I went through so many emotions, I went through so many hours of being painfully heartbroken.

Last year in 2018 became the most horrific moment of my life. I was being targeted upon my condition; I was being mock in Infront of students. I was being called out by ex-friends who didn’t love me as a person. Within the period, I almost attempted suicide and went into a deep depression that almost ended my life. Even though, I battled 6 health problems that were not easy within my own life.

Within my depression, I was nothing. I didn’t feel beautiful and felt damaged with all the hairs that reminded me of what happened. I couldn’t look in the mirror and see the woman in Infront of me. I couldn’t focus on my job, nor myself. Because all I thought about was the events that made me breakdown to the floor and cry.

When I would come to school, I felt like the whole world was against me. I couldn’t focus on the books; I couldn’t focus on my education. I couldn’t focus on anything than thinking about those people who led me to that point.

My friends and family would remind me of how beautiful I am. But I didn’t see it.

Within the back of mind, I kept thinking about

THE SOLUTION TO END THE PAIN

I will never forget what happened, I will never forget what type of pain I experience. But what I do know is that I’m learning how to combat the dark forces and find a light at the end of the tunnel.

As a moment of happiness, attending the Jonas Brothers Concert in 2019 was the most loving experience of my life as a human. Watching my childhood idols and being able to gain love within an audience.

This became a fanatic moment.

In 2019, I met somebody, and I knew in my heart that he could be the one. But the events and situations were too much to handle. Because I got humiliated again by another party that wanted to put my public information online.

I may be crazy to write this, I may be weird upon revealing the truth. But I was physically and emotionally damaged. I was heartbroken and made a fool by people I trust.

Transforming my life became a changing point to erase the past and step into the future. It became a moment to find happiness. Many events led me to the reason for shaving my hair, many events led me to the reason for shaving my past.

When the barber shaved my hair, all those horrific memories were disappearing. All those horrific memories were vanishing in total sympathy.

The minute I viewed myself in the mirror, I felt empowered and brave to combat what was tearing me down. I felt a boost of energy, I felt a boost of love.

Shaving my hair allowed me to be confident within my skin. Shaving my hair allowed me to rethink my future towards a new direction.

Even though I battled the worst, this transformation saved me from a world I was about to enter and never crawl out.

Many times, I thank god for a solution, many times I thank god for giving me my wings to fight and be brave.

Many times, I thank god for spurring the haters away.

I can follow my dreams; I can follow my purpose and determination.

I don’t need to be afraid of the world, I don’t need to be afraid of love.

Shaving my hair, attending a childhood concert, leaving the job that wasn’t my point of happiness, ending friendships with toxic people, battling 6 conditions that are a struggling, surviving situation of death within my memories, battling 10 years of trauma and trying to breakthrough.

So much has happened within my life, I can’t imagine.

But the benefits

Attending a community college and graduating with my Liberal Arts Associates, attending a University and working towards graduating in 2021 with my degree in Business Management and Entrepreneurship. Working hard towards getting into my dream school and following a plan to get my Music Business Bachelors and Masters. Working hard to work with Sony’s Music Entertainment, Warner’s Brothers Music, or Live Nation.

Working hard towards expanding my Brand Charmrosebrand.com and working on developing two companies within the world of music. Working on developing a line of books within Music and Textbooks.

Working towards gaining a career as an Artist Management and Administrative Assistant. Maybe someday, share a life with somebody and start a family.

Inspiring artists to follow their dreams and developing their potential. That’s my field of passion, I take steps to discover myself. Because I want to be a leader for other people. I want to be an influencer and be able to develop a world of music that has much respect within the community.

I tell my story for a reason, I don’t wanna hide who I am as a creative entrepreneur. I don’t want to hide who I am as an artist. Telling my story is a big step, Telling my story is a big turning point.

But I hope this story shows people a true potential side of Charm Rose Brand and what she had to do to find her true identity within the music.

I never want to allow my past to disrupt my passion for the artist and their movement. I want my life to be a legacy within the music.

Sometimes

WE HAVE TO BATTLE THE WORST, IN ORDER TO FIND THE LIGHT.

As a woman, I have big dreams and a big focus upon where I wanna be. Shaving my head was a turning point and I love everything about this experience. I don’t understand why these bad events happened. But within those 10 years, good things happen as well. I don’t regret my success. But I do regret upon allowing those groups of people to bring me down.

But I win the war, I win the gain of experiencing life from another view.

This is my story and I am a brave woman for starting a new chapter of my life.

Jonas Brothers Concert Experience 2019

Jonas Brother Concert Experience 2019

Jonas Brothers

Song “Human”

Concert 2019

The greatest experience is finding yourself, finding your ability to be proud, to be brave, to be strong.

The Jonas Brothers experience concert was my key to happiness and a new chapter of love. From the day I was born, I grew up watching The Jonas Brothers. I grew up with their music, and just dancing to the beat.

For so long, I have been wanting to attend a concert. I have been wanting to just less loose, and be a string within the crowd of people.

After 10 years, The Jonas Brothers come back, and I can’t be more excited. Everything about it was an energy thrill. It felt like a strike of Red Bull that would collapse within your veins.

The concert was amazing and spectacular. The Jonas Brothers sang songs that included: SOS, Year 3000s, Mandy, Hold on, Lovebug, Burning up, Human, Gotta Find You, Cake By The Ocean, Jealous, Video Girl, and more.

The opening artist was Bebe Rexha, and Jordan McGraw (Dr. Phil’s Son)

They were amazing and rock the stage to a full extent.

The crowd’s reaction was unbelievable. People knew the lyrics by hearts and sang with the artist full on.

I loved Jordan McGraw’s performance, something about him had a type of undeniable spark. This man had a fire within his skin and gave the audience a type of edge within the music.

Within every performance, I cried, laugh, and sang. I couldn’t believe I was at this moment.

This moment became my energy kill in every way. I loved the songs, the laughter, the stream of fire, and so much more.

During the performances, Bebe Rexha decided to twerk on stage and bring a fan as to dance with her. The fan was crazy, decided to dance with Bebe. He was amazing, and shake his booty to a full extent.

If I could turn back time, I would turn it a thousand times just to watch The Jonas Brothers again.

Its an experience I will never forget.

Within seating, I and my cousin were on the 2nd balcony in row 8. The seating was so high, and a good view of the concert. I saw every angle, and vision within the performances. People literally got up and took photos. They would get up, and dance to every extent possible.

After the concert, I notice there were a couple of guys selling the Jonas Brothers t-shirt for 20 bucks. I only had 5 and wanted a t-shirt. The guy obnoxiously got all defensive, it was all good. He had t-shirts inside his clothing and down his pants. Yeah, I’m going to pass and buy it on Amazon.

During the concert, I notice something interesting at that moment. The Jonas Brothers had a book named “Blood” that recalled the journey of their life. I am planning on buying the book. I already knew how their life started.

Blood: A Memoir by the Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers grew up in a small town called “New Jersey” with a family that owned a church. Their father was a pastor, and the mother was always supportive. They loved their kids very much, and always supported their dreams.

The Jonas Brother

Nick Jonas, Kevin Jonas, Joes Jonas, and the youngest Frankie Jones.

The reason why this concert was so special to me.

Nick Jonas has type 1 and 2 diabetes. I am somebody who lives with type 2 diabetes, and 5 other health problems. To watch a musician like him within that stage was much of a dream of happiness running thru my skin. I admired this man so much, he inspires me in every way to keep living. Even though, I have it. His performance was dedicated toward diabetes, “A Little Bit Longer”. This song drove me down to tears because it shows that you can live longer. Even though, you suffer from a deadly condition that’s life-threatening. The lesson learned: take care of yourself and always manage your diabetes. Nick Jonas made the statement fully clear, truly embrace the hearts of every people living with Diabetes.

This man is my hero, and I thank my family for allowing me to attend this concert. I went through so many emotions it’s crazy. But every moment of what I spent on money was definitely worth it within the end.

A Little Bit Longer

Jonas Brothers

Got the news today

Doctors said I had to stay

A little bit longer and I’ll be fine

When I thought it’d all been done

When I thought it’d all been said

A little bit longer and I’ll be fine

But you don’t know what you got till it’s gone

And you don’t know what it’s like to feel so low

And every time you smile, you laugh, you glow

You don’t even know, know, know

You don’t even know

All this time goes by

Still, no reason why

A little bit longer and I’ll be fine

Waiting on a cure

But none of them are sure

A little bit longer and I’ll be fine

But you don’t know what you got till it’s gone

And you don’t know what it’s like to feel so low

And every time you smile, you laugh, you glow

You don’t even know, know, know

You don’t even know, know, know

You don’t even know, know, know

Yeah!

But you don’t what you got till it’s gone,

And you don’t know what it’s like to feel so low, yeah

And every time you smile, you laugh, you glow

You don’t even know! yeah, oh, yeah, ohhh, yeah, yeah

You don’t even know! know, know!

So I’ll wait till kingdom come

All the highs and lows are gone

A little bit longer and I’ll be fine

I’ll be, fine

Everything about this concert was my eye-opening reason to attend. I quit my job at Walmart month before, because I wanted one night of happiness, and away from the life I lived. I wasn’t happy at my job at Walmart. Because there was somebody who made my work life complicated. I wanted to be away from her in every way.

Walmart wouldn’t allow me to attend the concert. They wouldn’t allow me to have that one day off. So a couple months before I gave in my two weeks’ notice, and left this job in a heartbeat.

All I wanted was to attend the Jonas Brother Concert and I am glad that I was a person with love within the audience to support the three men I love most within the music.

My message to the Jonas Brothers

You are my inspiration to live and to be brave. Thank You for fulfilling my heart with so much joy and encouragement. You guys rock that stage and relived the moment in everyone’s eyes.

I LOVE YOU JONAS BROTHERS

KEEP ROCKING

“Every Beat is a sonographic rhythm, that shower’s our skin with glory”

Ladies & Gentlemen

An African American Singer and Songwriter

“HAAWW’S”

JANUARY 2020

Story of HAAWW’S

The story is an inspired format, the music is banging upon every step, beat, and measure.

HAAWWS is an inspiring Singer/Songwriter

He grew up within the center of a beat upon music and its scenery. As a child, he knew exactly what he wanted to be, he knew exactly where he wanted to go.

The world view was more of an adventure and a built-in story upon his views within the music.

As a child, he started playing drums and got caught up within the studio. He dances moreso stepping.

Any opportunity within music became a gateway of what’s next. An opportunity to rap, an opportunity to show the world who you are as an artist.

He broke out and took a risk upon a brighter future. He never stops believing in his music. He never stops believing in his ability to take a leap of faith.

Since the budget was tight, affording a session became a challenge. So, he took advantage of using his skills as a marketing effect. During school, he freestyled within the cafeteria as a rapper and an artist.

People became his following; people applauded his work. He was the artist of the century within skills, movement, and a fine coordination.

By the time he was able to afford a session, he was able to rap a couple of songs.

“Flava In Your Ear” by Craig Mack

“Quiet Storm” by Mobb Deep

Writing, and composing lyrics became his calling within the scene of music.

Interview

HAAWWS

What is your life story within music and how did you evolve as an artist?

I started music at a very young age playing the drums, frequenting different dance studios, being engulfed in the music scene. From family in the business to just being a fan, I’ve always had an inclination that id do music, but I never knew for sure this is what I wanted to do until around 2015. It still wasn’t until

2017 that I started to jump into the recording process. Before then I would frequent different studios, trying to get a session whenever I could with the little budget I had. But nothing good would ever come of it. It took me time to really develop my skills from just freestyling in the lunchroom to being able to deliver properly in the booth. It’s funny, I remember one of my first sessions with my partner Jeff I rapped over 2 classic instrumentals “Flava In Ya Ear” by Craig Mack Rest in Peace, and the go-to for any freestyle session “Quiet Storm” by Mobb Deep. Neither tracks were good lol. I also met Leo (@leomixedit) that day, and even though sonically it didn’t turn out how I imagined, I never gave up on the dream of getting back in and making something new and fresh. Running into obstacles like having very little to no money for studio time, or even a ride to the studio. For months to a year, I would wait and imagine what we’d call a “big homie” or “OG” to be like “yeah I F**k with you, come to my studio lets work” and unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. Not here in Boston. I’m very appreciative of that struggle to find a creative space because it allowed me to obtain some very valuable information and relationships along the way.

What inspired you as an artist?

The freedom to express how I feel unapologetically is what inspires me, the creative process, the long nights in the studio, the ups, and downs that come with being independent. The constant denial and approval you receive from family and friends. The fact connects with people across the globe. The struggle to get people to understand why it is you do what you do and how you do it.

What advice do you have for another artist?

Be your true self in all forms, it translates better. I realized that people have always took a liking to me for always being in my rawest form, from good to bad, they always knew I was authentic and that they weren’t going to get any more or less. “Stop Trying To Be GOD” lol as out there as it might sound, I know people who are artists and try to play savior to their friends by trying to get them to be onboard or understanding of what they (the artist) are/is trying to accomplish. It’s always the closest to us that never understands. They’re never going to understand! It’s art! No one really does, we just say we do. It’s on us as artists to take control over our destiny and design our paths how we want. Friends not feeling it. Branch out! Because someone out there will. 7.4 billion people on this earth, streaming lets you touch them all. Doesn’t mean I condone everything being created these days if its trash leaves it on the hard drive lol. It’s up to us to choose our narratives.

World of Talent

The Music Industry

The world industry, a dramatic stage, a living moment, a dream that’s unspeakable to the world itself. As a musician, we form our voice as to succeed, and always challenge ourselves as to never give up.

The greatest gift about being a musician, never allowing life to break your barriers. Never allowing the despise of competition to break who you are.

Within the Music Industry, we must develop a mindset, we must develop a sense of intelligence within the rhythmic soul.

That’s what the world of talent represents

Always achieve, never forget

As an Artist, you will face many challenges and opportunities within the Music Industry. Some element would include studio, preparations, training, experience, product development, and others.

But the greatest development as an artist always invests in yourself.

Stop Thinking about Money

Stop Thinking about Enemies

Stop Thinking about Negativity

God gave you a gift, God gave you a chance to find a better light.

Do you think it’s easy to break into the Music Industry?

The Music Industry is a competitive field and a tough market. The sense of money becomes their main target, as well as product development, and marketing within an artist.

As an artist, you have to focus on your brand, and where you wanna go. You have to focus on your style, and what message would you wanna bring out to the world. You have to take control, and give yourself credit for making something a bit more artistic within an album.

You have the knowledge, You have the skills, You have the experience. That’s the greatest part about developing your musical skills, always enhance what makes you unique, and voraciously amazing.

Forget about the pressure, Forget about the stress, Forget about the fear.

When you leap into that stage, don’t allow fear to diminish you. Don’t allow words to frighten you. Move across that stage, move your body as if it were your last moment.

A great example would include the movie “Footloose” and “Dirty Dancing”

The greatest example within the movie Footloose and Dirty Dancing

Blasting the music, and just hitting the stage. Dancing Infront of a crowd, dancing Infront of a car. These two movies represent a wide generation within the style of music.

If you are a 90s kid, you probably recognized these types of artist: Backstreet Boys, Nsync, Salt and Peppa, TLC, and others.

So what do they have in common?

They all have a passion for music, they all work hard and showed their potential. But most importantly, they challenge themselves and became a hit wonder.

As a musician, we must follow our hearts, and never forget what’s ahead. Its all about duration within every risk. But sometimes, risk can be a good thing, it allows you to open your mind and create something different.

In life, you have to be creative, and stand out from the world itself. Why would you want to create the same content? Why would you want to be like somebody else?

Within the Music Industry, you have to find your brand, you have to find your own style. You have to create your own lyrics and instrumental beat.

Discovering yourself along the way, that’s the greatest key.

Within my direction, I never had any experience within the Music Industry. But each day, I live and breathe music as a gift. But each day, I live and learn the essentials as a progression.

We all have to learn something, and never forget the real value of discovering your potential.

As a child, I develop myself from a young age, and self-taught myself the essentials within the Music Industry. Some topics would include: Music Theory, Music Production, Singing, Dancing, Artistic Contribution, and others.

I would audition for shows, open mics, talent shows, and others. But nobody ever believed in me, they never believed I had what it took.

Laugh in my face, and walk away.

But even though, I had people who manipulated me within feelings, and passion. I never gave up and kept pushing. I always believed in breaking barriers, and just taking a risk. I always believed in combating the greatest dreams.

As an artist, don’t go down the same path I did. At 28 years old, I’m restarting my life and pursuing my dreams. But I’m not gonna give up, I’m gonna keep pushing now.

Take action, and live your dreams. It doesn’t matter what age you are, It doesn’t matter what level you are. But as an artist, you have to listen to your own heart, and follow the greatest voice.

Listen to your voice, and the doors will finally open.

Within the World of Music.

Challenge Section

As a mission, I challenge you to write a song and think about a positive message. Think about the meaning, think about the inspiration, and how it would apply within your own life story.

Perform the song, and even email it to me at charmrosebrand@gmail.com

If you want feedback, I would be glad to listen to it and email you back my response.

The key lessons I would advise as a musician

Keep a commitment towards your skills, knowledge, and education.

Gain experience within the Music Industry.

Network and develop a portfolio

Prepare and craft your skills within the stage itself.

Learn an instrument, and practice every day.

Motivation

Battle your strength, and you will combat the artist within you. Battle your desire, and you will combat the voice that strives within you.

Fear Combat

Strive the fear that’s within you, Strive the desire to find light and showcase the greatest key. Everybody fears that one moment, Everybody fears that one wish.

But everybody fears what comes ahead.

Within the Music Industry, don’t be afraid and lose your grip. Just keep going, Just keep taking action. Never fear the strength, never fear the glory.

A dream is a dream if you make it happen. A dream is a dream if you make it possible.

World of Music is all about finding yourself.

Leap of Faith

Clayton’s World of Music

Within the World of Music, every artist has a story, Every artist has a direction. But for Clayton, the world of creativity is most likely a musical direction.

Music evolves our sense of passion within every duration life can give. Some elements would include a guitar, a piano, cultures, musical notes, and so much more.

The opportunity to meet Clayton was an amazing experience I will never forget, and I was so inspired by his story, his experience, and his culture. He showed me a world that I didn’t think could exist, but he gave me a sense of passion to always believe in my dreams.

So one day, I decided to contact Clayton and book an interview for my blog. I was nervous, it was my first opportunity to work on a piece within the Music Industry. I wanted to make a blog that was designed for Clayton as a free version of an article. I decided not to charge, that experience was worth every cent.

So, I called Clayton within that evening, and I was a bit nervous to respond. Clayton pick up the phone, and we started chatting about the interview. I started to babble a bit about my company. Clayton made the conversation easy; he asks me question’s and gave me a bit of helpful insight. He’s a total expert upon the style of communication and business.

So as we started to talk, I felt more comfortable explaining my purpose upon calling, and my business idea. Clayton understood and gave me the opportunity to interview him for an article within my blog.

Since the studio was at Clayton’s house, I decided to bring a friend who is creative as well. She loves the experience and everything about it.

That evening we met Clayton at his house, and his business was amazing upon the culture of music. He had everything set up and within a specific structure. Within that time frame, he was giving a student a piano lesson. So I and my friend decided to wait in the living room.

Across the room, I notice a guitar and a beautiful painting. Within my mind, Clayton had a fascination with the Spanish culture and wanted to portray that effect within his business.

Clayton was an amazing person and filled with a spontaneous personality. He was warm and welcoming. His life was structured upon style, organization, and creativity.

When he finishes with the student, Clayton invited us into his studio, and I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing. Some items would include a piano, music books, paintings, a loop sampler, and a recording device. Clayton had everything he needed to embrace a world of music within Spanish culture. He even had the book that caught my attention, the school I dreamed about for years. Clayton had a book named Berklee College of Music (but that topic will evolve later within the story).

Within the studio, Clayton decides to talk a bit about his music and how he transforms the knowledge within a device and an instrument. He taught me the process of teaching upon music, he taught me the techniques and strategies he uses while working with the kids.

He had so much knowledge as a musician and a guitarist. I was driven upon wanting to know more. He decides to play his guitar and jam to the music. He knows how to play the rhythmic notes and timing of the music. I and my friend were out blown, I felt as if I was at an actual concert hearing the band “KISS”. Clayton’s style would most likely include Jazz Rock Funk Fusion.

The man knew how to give a good show, he knew how to expand his creative knowledge upon a whole new level of desire and entertainment.

While conducting the interview, Clayton talks about the process of teaching his students within the style of music.

Within teaching, Clayton would use an instrument and device to match up the notes when teaching a student how to play music.

He used a technique called repetition, a step by step process when teaching music. The phrase “Repetition” is where sounds and sequences within sheet music are repeated within the notes.

For Example

“Playing a piano piece and practicing the notes as you play”

You must practice over and over until the music is matched up against the sheet of music.

Another technique he uses is a method known as a “Musical Phrase” where a combination of notes is formed within the melodies.

For Example

“Structure of Music upon sounds and rhythm within the notes”

Weak or Strong feel within the notes and its form.

As we were jamming to the music, I mentioned to Clayton about my memory loss and how I needed a recorder as to remember what the person says. Clayton understood and told me that a lot of people struggle with memory loss. He told me that it takes time within music and that you just have to practice as to learn the notes.

Within that moment, Clayton mentioned the movie “The Matrix”, and how it shows a fine example within the music. I was confused but decided to listen to Clayton’s theory.

He used the movie “The Matrix” to combine music and technology. It was fascinating and a great insight upon teaching.

Within teaching, he uses a level base structure depending on the student’s experience. Some structures would include beginners, intermediate, or advance. He would choose a piece of music that would fit their expectations and style.

Within the studio, Clayton has a line of equipment set up and wanted to show me its functions. Some devices would include the loop sampler, the guitar, and other devices. He showed me the loop sampler which helps him listen to the notes, and even freeze the music when teaching.

A “Loop Sampler” is a sample of a sound recording in another recording. Samples may include areas such as Rhythm, Melody, and even Speech within the music.

Within a Loop Sampler, Clayton freezes the notes as to follow along when playing. He knows how to play the notes while listening to the correct melody, and ear training.

Within the skill such as “Ear Training,” it’s basically a way of giving musicians the opportunity to identify notes as a method of hearing pitches, intervals, melody, chords, rhythms, and other basic elements within the music.

It was an amazing experience within the World of Clayton and his music. He brought a sense of passion and entertainment upon the culture.

After the studio, Clayton decides to bring us into his recording studio as to continue the interview. He explains more about his devices, and what he does upon services. It’s amazing what this guy can do.

During the interview, Clayton decides to tell us a bit about his life, and how he transformed into an artist. He had a long story, but I was eager to listen and experience his world. My friend loved the experience and she was impressed by his interpretation of music.
