KCC - Vertical Current's Bright Side of Midnight

*I am super late with this post but. . . better late than never ;-)*

I really love good food and good music! So I love being able to combine the two- especially if I also have great company!

Saturday- August 2nd was no exception!  With the release of their first full-length album, Vertical Current took to the Warmdaddy's stage to celebrate! I was happy to have my girl friend/lil sis there with me!

While the members of this exciting band are able to complement one another's strengths, they also bring on guests that seem to add an extra oomph to their shows! To start the night off, the audience was introduced to the group- Ode to OmniIt was the first time that my friend and I had heard them and we were definitely impressed! Other special guests (who also appear on the album) were Chartel Findlater, Shelia Moser (aka Lee Mo), Rick Tate Jr. and El' Ahmad Barak!

Bright Side of Midnight was released on July 29th and it offers 11 tracks of amazing music! Whether it's taking on classics like Summer Time (feat. Lee Mo) and What the World Needs Now (feat. Chartel) or original pieces like Voice on the Water and Bright Side of Midnight, Vertical Current is sure to keep listeners intrigued!

As usual, I was blown away by VC's performance! At the beginning of their set, I thought they were playing Over the Top [one of my favorite tracks from their 2011 EP entitled, "aRe"] but it turned out to be a medley of several tracks from the project! The way that VC blended their songs together was creative and seamless.

Something that I really enjoy about this group of musicians is the fact that you can feel the passion in their music- whether or not the song they're performing has lyrics!  I definitely believe that music can spark an emotion within you. And VC is successful in conveying a message/feeling of hope and love to (and within) their listeners! Just listen to Get Up! Oh my goodness!

If you don't know of them, you need to!  Click the links below and check out some clips from the album release celebration!

Bright Side of Midnight is available on sites like Google Play, iTunes, CDBaby and Amazon!

Check out VC's website to see when they'll be in a city near you! You won't be disappointed!

**And as far as food, I had the cheese steak rolls with secret sauce! I don't know what that sauce is made out of but I definitely took a container of it back home! Delicious!**

God Speaking {Even Me}

"Lord, I hear of showers of blessings Thou art scattering full and free Showers the thirsty souls refreshing Let some drops now fall on me. . . Bless me Protect me Direct me Even me, Lord" {Even Me - Yolanda Adams} "What are you asking for- [right] now?"  My close girlfriend posed the question and I was speechless. "What do you mean?" I asked. We were discussing life and I told her that I was feeling behind. . . that I needed to make progress in order to feel more stable in some areas. "You've already accomplished so much- in a year!" It was hard for me to hear this because I just wasn't seeing it that way, at the moment. She began to list things I had done and I slowly saw the light (lol). She was saying that if I felt like I still wanted or needed things, I should consider what I was asking for. I told her that I didn't know where to start. She caught me off-guard when she said that she wanted to share a scripture with me. It was  J

Father Knows Best

I was surprised and confused.  I was sitting in church (last August) when the announcement was made that my father would be preaching for the upcoming Friday night's service. I got home, called my parents, and they laughed as they confirmed what I'd heard. Almost a year after leaving Maryland, I was finally going to be able to see my brother and father- in person! I was definitely looking forward to it! At the time, I was still working at a pizza restaurant and thankfully, the only day  I'd actually requested off was the exact day that they would be free to hang out. (I was basically working- every single day.😓) I proceeded to get on my family's nerves. I was trying to figure out what time Dad & Phillip would arrive in Texas, what airline they were traveling with, the airport they were flying into. . . everything! Nobody was giving me the details😔 but I did get a text when they got settled in their hotel room. On Thursday, we met up for dinner. They picked me up

Even Me {Part 2}

PC: The Storyteller Co./Morgan Harper Nichols I didn't anticipate writing another post so soon but I have been *positively* overwhelmed by the response to  God Speaking {Even Me} ! I feel like I owed you all somewhat of an explanation as well as some updates 😊. Generally Speaking: I've realized that because I haven't spoken on certain situations that I've experienced or dealt with, some people assume that those things aren't issues for me. (Not true😐.) I want to be honest and transparent so that people understand--> we ALL go through the same types of things. And if my lessons can be blessings for you, so be it. Whenever you read my writing, my prayer is that you feel like I'm a friend, cousin, sister, or just a nice person who simply wants to encourage & inspire you.  Before the Post : I was feeling "some type of way"- for real. . . It caught me off-guard because during the weekend, I felt good! I had posted It Keeps Happening by Kierra
