Yesterday, I received the first test pressing of my Jackson Park 7 inch. I had never heard my music on vinyl and I was afraid that it would suck. Added to my anxiety was the fact that this was a lathe cut record as opposed to pressed. For those who don’t know, there are some lathe cut records that have really awful audio quality and you must be careful in what company you select to cut the record.
I was pleasantly surprised how well the record sounds! The bass was deep and balanced, and the highs were crisp and sweet. So I want to thank “In the Clouds Records” for all of their hard work.
Audio samples will come soon.
Yesterday, we released a new episode of the Movement of Color Podcast! Byron and myself talked about the new Queen movie, “Bohemian Rhapsody”! Also I have a great conversation with Civil Rights attorney Carl Williams about our rights in America.
This summer, I was interviewed at the Chicago Cooperative Economy Summit.

Over the last couple of months, I have been organizing a new music collective. The Lakebeat Social Club is a group of like minded musicians hell bent on creating an inclusive community all while building a larger musical movement.
Our first event was held at the Hyde Park Art Center. Performers included Tye L’Ouverture, Amelia Sweet Bluebird and my talented Student Lucy Dometrescu. It was a wonderfully attended event and we found other creative types that were interested in building a larger movement.
