Tisabel: “GENRE HOPPING” bristles with energy and artistic audacity

Longtime Musical director and vocalist Tony Isabel aka Tisabel boasts an unprecedented skill set. He writes, arranges, sings, plays, and performs. He busts taboos, flashes unstoppable ambition, blends genres together like paint. Soulful ballads and funky grooves, ambient new age soundscapes, Hip-hop fantasy, and divine EDM devotion. For these qualities alone, he deserves respect. However, as you know, respect is also kind of a bullshit concept. Your favorite songs may not grace anyone else’s mixes; your favorite artists may not have ever left town. A century of recorded music has given us a galaxy of worthy tunes. But the gravitational

Lee Lee Lanea: “Basswhipped” resonates gloriously

Beats aren’t gendered. So why are we still in the dark ages when it comes to gender equality in the music studio? Women represent less than 5% of music producers and engineers. Yes, the music industry—like every industry on this patriarchal planet—is sexist. That is not news. But this means we’re missing out on a whole world of sounds, stories, and perspectives. Our culture has systematically ingrained this idea that technology is more of a man’s thing. Then of course there’s the fact that most men get freaked out when women do things better than them or even as good

Mobb Boss: “Lil Lady” – the depth, perspective and hunger of a performer

Being respected, revered and admired as an emcee is what often elevates a rapper from being one who merely strings together words that rhyme into an appreciated lyricist of the highest order. However, while there are a long string of spitters and scribes that have come along, the elite few who have found themselves mentioned in conversations and debates when discussing quality artists, have one thing in common: a track record of consistently delivering music that make the most of their lyrical abilities and serve as a piece of themselves. When speaking of today’s pack of underground orators, Mobb Boss

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA — Peter wrote this song for the older people, who he had the honor and privilege of ministering to over many years. Pete explained that many had a humble, kind, and appreciative dignity; qualities born of a long life shaped by faith and wisdom. Most were to experience the debilitating effects of age, including mental decline and dementia. During visits he struggled and prayed with them through the inevitable spiritual and emotional valleys of such a decline. He further explained that those, for whom faith and a personal relationship with God most defined what it meant to

King Draper: “1992” – simplistic in its premise but unquestionably real in its execution

You can’t write about underground or independent hip-hop and not write about King Draper. Or at least I seemingly can’t. For the past couple years the man’s been a nearly constant presence in my journalistic exploits. And now, I’m sitting down again to review his latest 11 track project, “1992”.  The King hits me with dope music and I write about it, and I’m more than happy with the arrangement. If you’ve peeped any of King Draper’s projects before, what you get from this project won’t surprise you. Draper with his soulful, jazzy, production and his smart anecdotes detailing tales

Edgler Vess: “Violet” – essential to your hip-hop collection

Every album that Edgler Vess releases, breathes with a distinct personality, each a shape-shifting assemblage of personage and programming that sounds more like a kind of miraculous hyperlinked sound collage than rap. His lyrical feats go unmatched for sheer idiosyncrasy and insight; beyond rap enthusiasts, many of his strongest supporters are probably writers and music heads. A master of the microphone and the beats, Vess has constantly swapped out his tools and themes, avoiding revision and instead choosing innovation. When Edgler Vess does what he does, he’s impossible to ignore. He’s profound, he’s impressive, and he’s damn entertaining. In short,

Donny feels that his investment of time with his family has truly paid off. Eldest son, Donny Jr, who recently completed his senior year at the private Christian school, The King’s Academy (TKA), in Tennessee, graduated with honors, and was an “all-star” athlete for his high school baseball team. Among his many accomplishments, he was voted “Mr. TKA 2017” by his graduating classmates, and the school staff. His public speaking has seen many of his peers and contemporaries express new commitment to their Christian faith.

Young Carl, just turned 14, has become quite the accomplished actor, having already appeared in 3 feature movies, a holographic production as young David from the Bible for a Pigeon Forge music theater, and several TV shows. Carl played the true to life part of Uncle Donny’s son in the movie, “Saving Faith”, for which Donny was nominated Best Lead Actor in a Feature Film by the International Christian Film Festival (regarded as the Oscars of Christian films). Carl is also interested in ministry oriented activities, and is gaining experience working with younger kids as a counselor and activity director. Yes, Donny Richmond is back! And with many blessings to be thankful for!
