About this project

I am looking to create an album with new upcoming artistes from different genres. I became physically disabled since 2008 due to injuries I received while working(work place violence - Hate Crimes). As a result I now live a more reclusive lifestyle and have to find creative ways to make a living one of which is doing something I love (music!!). 

I have experience in music promotion and distribution and am also a publisher. I have always been inspired by music and hope to create an album that will inspire others. I guess due to my experience where I was treated differently because of where I was from and what I was I am now compelled through music to try and bring people together by trying to remove social barriers and beliefs. I hope to instill a more open appreciation for other cultures rather than fear and  indifference by showing that we can enjoy music from each other. This is why I am creating an album with artistes from different social backgrounds that sound good together. 

The album I am hoping to create will basically bring genres together representing the current trends in music where fusion(integration of more than one genre in a song) is becoming more popular. I would also like to bridge certain cultural gaps by presenting the songs together in a way that is appealing to all fan bases in each genre. In other words for example I would like latin fans to develop an appreciation for hip hop through fusion of latin into a hip hop song. Or even a hip hop song with reggae influences. This album is seeking to appeal to the senses, educate and entertain you at the same time. Ultimately it will be a joy ride while bringing together people of different interests and backgrounds.
