Some say offensive. I say "Funny". What do YOU say?

Hey, this is a video of the character Betty Butterfield after having attended the United Church of Christ.
I think it's funny, but some people find it offensive.
I won't tell you why.
Judge for yourself and tell me what YOU think.

Yup,
That's right!
I do reggae (sometimes) with my band. It's a medley of some of the songs I used to dig growing up.
I sang this one with my Band, FunkNYCity (funk-ni-city) one Tuesday for a young lady who's brother loved to hear me do this. He passed away just days before.

Independence Day through this New Yorker's Eyes

Well, I can truly say that I had a "Happy Holiday".
     My best friend, Ashleigh & I went to Manhattan to view the Fireworks display that's put on each year by Macy's department store. (same folks who do the famous Thanksgiving Day parade).
It was absolutely awesome! I mean, they made smiley faces and the planet saturn with Fireworks! Can You believe that?
I loved it, as did the thousands of other people who bore witness to the event live. We were all, simply, AMERICANS.
     Everyone applauded several times before the big finale'..... at which time, we all exploded with cheers and screams of "that was awesome"! 
     We had lots of space. No drama. Just fun!
If you haven't gone, you should.
Until then, check out MY little video of the event! hehehe!
Enjoy!

INAYA IN WONDERLAND


(don't forget to click the links as you read)
Hey!

     So, ok! I performed for a huge party called WONDERLAND at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, California.
The event was on the Paramount lot complete with movie sets, TV sets, acrobats, dancers, singers, and DJ Tony Moran, TONY MORAN spins at Wonderland!.
There were about 1500-2000+ people there, I guess. (I'm awful at guessing amounts of people and square footage, so there were probably many more people than I've stated)
     Among MY guests were Jennia Fredrique from Noah's Ark and Tisha Campbell-Martin of House Party, Little Shop Of Horrors (movie), My Wife & Kids and Martin.
     So, without further adieu, here are some photos for ya!

MY BAND AND MY HAMSTER

Well, good evening!  :-)
     Figured I'd update you on how Tuesday went.
     So, yeah... we have new guys in the band. Went super well.... and on the first try! YAY! The crowd had a blast and we were well pleased.
We had GTO & Wallace with us on vocals, Mark Kelly on bass (he also plays with Michelle N'Dgeocello), & Nat Townsley (one of THE most coveted drummers on earth). 
It went so well, I think we'll do this again on June 28th!
Hope you can make it!
Me with My Band's Co-leader, Cheryl Pepsii Riley:

     So, I got a hamster. 3 days later, she was sick. I took her to the Petco doctor. They say she has a 30% chance of living. SUCKS!
I Love that little thing already. Her name's Krissie!
Keep fingers crossed and say a prayer!
I'll keep you posted.
Ciao for now.

Reclaiming My Treasures (from Internet pirates)

  • It's REALLY hard for recording
artists to sell music these days.
Most, if not all, record stores have closed down and 
the internet pirates make it very difficult for 
internet retail. They download then post free links to songs that don't belong to them, thereby stealing food from the copyright owners' and artists' mouthes.
   Some argue that if they're posting it, that means 
they like it and wish to spread the word.
Well, if you like an artist and their music, isn't it 
even more cool to show support by encouraging 
purchases? After all, that's why the music is released on RETAIL sites and not in blogs.
Do we want you to blog about our music? YES! But we 
also want you to post the links to listen & PURCHASE, 
not links to unauthorized downloads.
Pirates are winning because we're not fighting....
SO, here's a bit of armor to help 
protect YOUR music in this battle.
Here's an approved template to send to any unauthorized download site! IT WORKS! so be diligent!

Hello,
    I am the copyright owner of this master and 
have not authorized it's use for free download.
   Use of the below-mentioned material is not 
authorized by the copyright owner,

Songs from my OWN label

Well, I had to give in and do it.
I started my own label last year.
I've just released my 2nd single from NY-O-Dae Music. (YAY!)


Why now? Well, we're in the day of "Do It Yourself", so I figured I'd do it myself. No middle man.
     In house music, labels mostly release the music to digital stores and let the songs fly or fail on their own with no push nor promo ; and with all of the pirates posting the music to free sites, you don't stand a chance with someone in the middle taking a larger chunk of YOUR work than you get.
I figured I could , at least , push harder than they.
I advise any other artists with a bit of business savvy to do the same.
So, here's the link to the new song, 
CHASE ME.
http://www.traxsource.com/index.php?act=show&fc=tpage&cr=titles&cv=87889
.....and here's HIGHER PLACE .

Inaya sings Gospel with Jimmie Earl Perry

     A Buddy of mine, Jimmie Earl Perry (who now lives in South Africa), emailed me one day and asked me to sing a coupla songs with him on his album. 
*peep album here: http://www.aidscentre.sun.ac.za/index.php/shop/ 
One of these songs is an old devotional church tune called, 
JESUS WILL FIX IT.
     So he sent me the tracks with backgrounds and his vocals, and I just filled in the blanks right here in my Home Studio, DayTraxx.


I'm sure that most of you can tell by my style of singing that Gospel is my root, so I figured I'd post something to feed not just your earhole, but your soul as well  :-)
ENJOY!

how my single, BETTER DAYS was born

Ya know.... I'm a firm believer in including friends and fam by letting their voices be heard while standing on my little platform.
     My cuzzo, George had never written or recorded a song before. But one day, while listening to some tracks from NATIVE SON at my house, I asked him if he'd like to write with me.
He said he'd never written before but would like to give it a shot.
Well, he kicked butt and here's the result.... signed, sealed , and delivered on BROKEN RECORDS.

Something a little from Inaya

Awight!
     So, I know you're used to hearing me sing house music, but I WRITE and SING just about every genre.
This song is just one of the many.
I did all of the vocals except the "bowm bowms". That's my friend Colin Rich! (check him out here! http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/39834241-i-ll-wait )


We were in Germany attending a music production workshop where the company would mix and match different singer/songwriters with producer/songwriters of multiple genres.
I did a little rock, pop, dance and ....THIS SONG!


I think it will work GREAT for movies! Let me know what YOU think!
