That new new on the YouTube! (Link in bio) I’ve got your questions answered on the ins and outs of the union, SAG/AFTRA. If you’re in the arts and serious about making it a career, you’ve either joined or you finna’ join. Who’s ready?

Don't get star struck often, but every now and then I think I'm allowed to lose it. This drummer right here!! Right here THIS drummer. πŸ₯John JR Robinson is responsible for the foundation of a great deal of the music that has shaped me. Quite notably, Rufus & Chaka Khan's "Ain't Nobody", which is what I had the honor of performing with him at the Remo Drum Show in Manchester. (I could go on, or you could the read liner notes of your favorite Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Madonna, Eric Clapton records...) ENORMOUS "thank you" to @brazil.karl for the opportunity to play with some mega drum legends. Haven't been this nervous in a while. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Monday feels. 🏴It's been soooooo good to be home!! I finally feel grounded here. Sleeping in my own bed, reconnecting with family and friends, and setting new intentions for life/career/love. Excited, scared, motivated, & ready. πŸ“Έ @brianaleevocals .

I've been trying to tell y'all!!!! Talking to other singers, musicians and dancers about money only serves you and the community as a whole!! It helps us negotiate stronger and understand what rates should be in a land where you can't Google a typical salary. **Click link in my bio for tips on HOW to talk to your friends about money!
If you know me, you know I literally don't care about this stupid taboo we've allowed for way too long. Network across. Open your mouth. Hustle harder. Get money. Thank me later.

So much truth to this!!! I'm proud and grateful to be in a community of friends that love each other, look out for each other, and who feel a win when EVERYBODY wins. Network across. Thank you @issarae!!!

As the wise prophetess Ms. Lauryn Hill once said, "It could all be so simple, but you'd rather make it hard." Oftentimes there are really simple things we can do to improve our craft, set ourselves apart and generate more work. Check out this video...the link is in my bio. *I'd so appreciate a πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘ and subscribe if you agree. This helps singers find my little channel so the community can grow. Thanks y'all!

For my singers and dancers!! Sometimes we've got to do a little work in order to get more work. One suuuuuper easy way to get the ball rolling is just by meeting people. The majority of our jobs come from relationships...and you can't create relationships if you don't go outside. 😏Click the link in my bio for two more easy tips...and please subscribe!
***I started this YouTube Channel, "The Practice Room", to share some things I've learned and am still learning about this crazy little entertainment industry. Hope you enjoy! 🎢

Did an interview for a podcast today and we got to talking about the business side of the artistic career. I've said it before and will probably keep saying it: social media is such a crucial and EASY way to network!!
Click the link in my bio for a quick video in "The Practice Room" on this and two other easy-peasy ways to get your business brain in gear.

...and all of a sudden I was 33. My Master Number, the year of the glow up, my Jesus year...a year of wisdom, change, accomplishment, discipline, justice, courage, death and resurrection. Love me some symbolism! I'm ready Lord. #33

There are certain little comforts that people need on tour to keep it together during long stretches away from home. Tour friendships are one of them. This girl right here held me down like a champ!
In this pic she's placing my monitor pack in the perfect spot and wrapping my chord so I have just enough slack but not too much. Not everyone can do it right. Lol!
I went through some real real real life shit during this tour, and it was more than a blessing to have someone who understands your humor, watches the same shows on Netflix, and knows the difference between when you're hangry or you really just need some space...not to mention someone you're 100% certain you can trust!! Much love to my tour sis! Couldn't have done it without you. ❀️❀️ #bts
