Daemon Blak


Daemon Blak started playing guitar at age 15. his initial influence was blues, until he became influenced by Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Metallica and started playing heavy metal. After playing in "THE WARNING" and a couple of other bands, Daemon retired from music in 1993 to attempt to live a "normal life". That didn't exactly work out as planned because creative types (musicians, artists, writers) cannot be described as normal. After a divorce in 2000 and eventually the death of his father in December 2006, Daemon determined it was time to come back to his first love- MUSIC. In January of 2007, Daemon decided to make his comeback. He wrote 25 original songs and recorded them in his home studio. In April 2008, Daemon created metal band "HAMMER OF FATE" with a local drummer. From 2008 to 2009, "HAMMER OF FATE" went through numerous lineup changes. the lineup changes did not create a stable lineup that worked, so "HAMMER OF FATE" was disbanded in November, 2009. In December, 2009 Daemon started over, creating a metal band project called "DARK BLU". From December 2009 to September 2011, Daemon recorded 32 original songs with lyrics, and continued to seek a female rock singer to join his solo project and make it a duo.

Singer. Songwriter. Legacy. So much can be said about El Debarge, Jr. yet the first that should come to mind is a man standing on his on two feet...on the shoulders of giants. El's early influence in music was natural yet the first steps into his career began when he toured with hip hop notable DJ Quik. He released a compilation entitled “The Growing” in 2008 under his InFaM label where he is the CEO and its catalyst. He is a member of the KTK Productions squad, a group formed by himself and DJ Quik’s nephews Rodney and Keya. El is currently working on his Ep entitled "Eldra Patrick"

GOLD STARS ** A taste of talent **

jurock ~ follow @jurock2011

In a city where stars are rarely born. A starving artist knocks and waits patiently at destiny’s door. Arguably one of the most known independent artists in the world, but without the gimmicks and the million dollar contracts, the road to success has undoubtably been one, most would not believe. but who is ju rock anyway? Is he a duplication of t.i? lil wayne? or some other hip hop star that he wants to be like. Ju Rock’s style can be compared to many of the big names of today. But what makes this self proclaimed “underdawg of the underground” different from the rest has yet to be seen, Unless you are of course one of the thousands that has been a witness to his impeccable flow, flawless delivery, and industry level hooks. Ju Rock is a visionary, his ear for music & his charismatic mic presence has made him the voice of a new generation. One look at Ju Rock’s track record will convince even the toughest critic that the indie bred artist is indeed the next big thing in hip hop. Although Ju rock’s roots start out in buffalo, ny, his name was made in the streets of toledo, oh (also known as the glass city). With the birth of myspace & other popular social networks came a new outlet, which resulted in an impressive number of page views, and downloads not to mention a fanbase that ju rock does not take for granted. Many of today’s artists thank the fans, but Ju Rock not only thanks them, he hears them. He has taken fan appreciation to the next level by being one of easiest artists to get in touch with. You can call and leave him a msg through his SayNow number (567-202-1657), follow him on his twitter account ( which he checks and updates at least 10 times a day or watch him live in the studio on his ustream page. “i believe in putting the real me out here and letting everybody feel me for me not for who they think i am”. The internet phenomenon that is Ju Rock, all started in the streets and thats where he says he plans to keep it. His current project “The Storm mixatape” (hosted by: dj logikal and the ohio street djs) is generating a buzz that might very well be that buzz that puts juliano in the spot he has be fighting for, for the last decade.

follow @moonboy22

George W Carroll, a Sarasota, Fl icon is at the center of jazz entertainment in his adopted hometown.
In his own words, Carroll says: ”I have no delusions about big time events in the music business itself.”

International Jazz Artist and Vocalist – Jazz Pianist

“It’s a tough racket, believe me.” But sometimes I’m in awe of my own accomplishments during this era of clubs closing left and right. George’s data base (locally) of some 1600 + names show up at his performances at clubs, a concert, fund raisers etc. and ‘‘this is very gratifying’’ Carroll says. Our audience gets younger every year. My wife Mary counsels me to just let things evolve and don’t over manage or over analyze. Carroll has attracted admirers on the national stage as well including legendary jazz vocalist Mark Murphy who says: “I love what George does with his selections from the American Songbook.”Murphy has also called George ”a great player-singer.”USA jazz pianist treasure Dick Hyman has called George “a considerable jazz performer and there are several original attractive songs which you present.” Presently, George is reaching out to the USA, Asian, and European jazz artist markets trying to attract attention in the area of jazz promoters, jazz festival directors, jazz artist booking agencies, national and international jazz performance venues, et al.

Jazz Artist and Composer

George has stood on the shoulders of some of the best jazz performers this world has produced and these have gone on to better things. I refer to such luminaries as jazz guitar sensation John Abercrombiejazz composer/arranger Mandel-esque and jazz pianist Alan BroadbentBuddy Rich alumna Greg Hopkins, et al. Over the years and through it all George exclaims: ”Music has been my engine.”

Big Band Jazz Quartet

Throughout the years, George hasn’t stood still regarding leaving his musical legacy. He has self produced some 25 + vocal big band jazz CD projects involving both his big band jazz quartet. Even ”PBS” produced a 1/2 hour feature on George’s career zeroing in on his big band and symphony vocal offerings. Carroll has penned some 10,000 + songs in his musical life and George says “it’s fun to get yearly royalties on some of them which are played from Boston to Australia.” With his tongue in his cheek, George says ”Have music, will travel.”

 T-Mack the Artist is a sign of the times, a symbol of a new golden era in rap. The inspiration you get from his voice leads you not to be critical or judgemental but productive, as it should.
“Brooklyn born, but I was raised in Queens…” (Da Beenz) explains his style.
Stationed in the Rotten Apple, he targets everywhere in the rest of the world not to destroy but to uplift, hence the name of his 3rd collection of concepts, beats & flows: “Work Like A Slave, Eat Like A King”.
“Work Like A Slave, Eat Like A King” is the proof. They didn’t think he had it in him. Along with the likenesses of platinum artist Mr. Cheeks & family, Feed Da Wolves finest Domination, up & coming Def Jam artist Spita & his ‘beastly’ comrade, the diva Miss India Blonde (as well as many other talents) he denounces the bad rumors.
T-Mack has heart, soul & substance. The more he delivers, the better it gets. Make sure you always stay tuned with T-Mack the Artist ’cause trust, you don’t wanna miss what he has in store!

by David Jeffries
Born William Drayton on March 16, 1959, rapper and reality television star Flavor Flav emerged in the late ’80s as the humorous hypeman of Public Enemy and then reinvented himself in the 2000s thanks to VH1′s reality series The Surreal Life. Raised in Freeport, Long Island, he was a self-taught prodigy on the piano but petty theft and burglary charges meant his teen years were spent dodging the department of corrections. After dropping out of high school in his junior year, music came back into Flav‘s life when he began hosting a college radio program with Carlton Douglas Ridenhour, the man who would soon become Chuck D. With DJ Terminator X and squad leader Professor Griff they would form Public Enemy, a group that in 1987 would change rap forever when its debut album, Yo! Bum Rush the Show, was released on the Def Jam label. With “stunna shades” hiding his eyes and over-sized clocks hanging off his neck, Flavor Flav played court jester to the stern and cold Chuck D. It was a formula that would work for the next 20-plus years, withFlavor occasionally becoming the center of attention with tracks like “Too Much Posse,” “911 Is a Joke,” “Can’t Do Nuttin’ for Ya Man,” and “Cold Lampin’ with Flavor.”
During the ’90s he spent much of his time away from music, dealing with crack addiction and spending time at the Betty Ford Clinic plus the Long Island Center for Recovery. Charges of domestic violence and driving with a suspended license meant he was in and out of jail again during these times and with Public Enemy on hiatus, Flavmade his money by scalping baseball tickets around the Bronx. In 2003, on a suggestion from Chuck D, he moved back to the West Coast. Sought out by the producers of the show, Flavor joined the cast of the reality show The Surreal Life in 2004, living with the likes of Charo and Dave Coulier while falling in love with the Amazon of the house, Brigitte Nielsen. In 2005, the couple’s love affair continued on the spinoff series Strange Love, but when the relationship ended in 2006, it spun off another Flavor-centered series, Flavor of Love, which would last for three seasons. Now back on top, the rapper released his debut solo album, Flavor Flav, in 2006 and suffered the jabs of Katt WilliamsPatton OswaltLisa Lampanelli, and others when The Comedy Central Roast of Flavor Flav aired in 2007. A year later he became a featured actor on the myNetworkTV sitcom Under One Roof.

Siege ~ Who is he?


Who is he?

Business owner, Graphic Designer, Hip Hop Artist, has two internationally recognized music singles, featured on Mixtapes from the UK hosted by DJ Bunty (Mixkings) and Knew Rulz (Draft Pick DJs) , most recently having a track produced by US Producer Illmind who has been linked to G-Unit and featured on one of Illmind’s signature mixtapes Blaps Rhymes & Life vol. 5 co- produced by one of England biggest Djs, Dj Dub MD which has reached close to 200,000 downloads which dropped in February 2011 and Siege will be featured on another mixtape out of Las Vegas done by The Mixtape Brothers due to release on June 4th 2011.  He has received airplay on stations in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston and New York.
After hearing Siege the first question on people’s lips was exactly where is Siege from? The answer to that being somewhere no one would’ve guessed…Trinidad & Tobago. Yes Trinidad & Tobago, the same place great artists such as Heather Headley, Chip Fu, Etienne Charles and Niki Minaj to name a few came from but unlike the rest Siege has never left his native country, yet possess a sound that has been considered one that fits in globally.
Born on November 1st 1985 to parents of Black and East Indian descents, Siege was always recognized as composed, humble being. He was blessed with artistic abilities in poetry, painting and visual arts. He was both respected and admired by his peers.
Residing in the town of Belmont located in Port of Spain, Trinidad, he grew up amongst mixed influences, being exposed to the bright and dark side of life. Siege observed his counterparts and gained knowledge and was greatly educated about the rules and ways of street life.
Although he was exposed to the drug pushers and the street life, he still completed his education, gained an average job and tried to establish himself in the economic world. Still having a love for poetry and rap music Siege recognized that he had a great talent and should put it to good use. “Being exposed to music by great emcees such as NAS, Killer Priest, Rakim, Black Thought from the Roots, KRS  One, Busta Rhymes, The Wu Tang Clan and Dr. Dre just to name a few, tends to have an effect on you over a period of time” He said.
Realizing this he started his journey as an emcee at the age of 19 years in 2004. He was quickly recognized for his ability to be uniquely lyrical and hold down freestyle session like days of old on street corner ciphers. Other emcee’s from around the way heard of him and started to vibe off his style and persona. “We use to have ciphers all the time, we used to feed off each other’s lyrics just making our own internal flame spark, priming us to spit our hardest and do lyrical and verbal damage to opponents” he said.
He started recording with some local underground artists and it went well for a while but he later decided to spread his wings and pursue his own path and squash the whole group idea. “It wasn’t for me, I just didn’t mesh with those brothers, we all had creative differences and like crabs in a bucket they tried to push down each other …not my style” he said
He took a break for a while and concentrated on graphic arts but as with any addiction he was back to developing his talent as an emcee once more. Later on in November 2006 he started working on music with his long time friend Christopher aka D’Chris/Bruce Wheyn of D2B (Dem 2 Boie). “I knew Chris since childhood, we chopped it up a few times but decided to take it serious in 2006” he said. Christopher then introduced Siege to Miguel aka Boogie Brown of D2B, Producer. “First time before I went to studio D’Chris warned me, Boogie don’t feel bullshit, he is real, as real as you could ever be when it comes to Hip Hop but soon as he heard me rap, he got all the proof he needed that I was indeed a force to be reckoned with.” he said. Since then they’re worked on different projects such as “The Urban Re-Collective” Album, “The Brick Soup Kitchen” Album and featured on many of D’Chris Flip City Mix Shows. Siege now in his 20’s and certified graphic artist is still hard at work perfection is discipline as an emcee.
Siege is currently recording his Mixtape “Black Diamond Chronicles” working with producers such as The Beat Heroes out of Miami, Florida, London based producer Anno Domini and German producer Philip Grothe of MAKA Productions. He has also currently teamed up with Jedi Night Skool out of the US and is working on a EP, Title, Guest features and date of release to be announced.

Love Letter 8

A secret love affair, you’ve taken me by your hand you’ve lead me at the beat of your heart you took me amorously you stirred feelings that thrive on this lust, this love, this desire you’ve awakened any dull moments in my life when I am with you. You’re like the light in the dark you lead the way to a sanctuary of sounds that vibrate through my body touching every sense in me. Igniting moves as you dip me fiercely staring deep into my soul with your eyes. And when you dance with me, I fall weak to your strong hands and your firm body. I’ve longed for you to touch me this way.  You’ve not touched me fervently but calmly and loosely to a point of no return. I’m capsulated by your love. I thought of this night a million times only in my dreams. We’ve danced to the beat of this song before, one of your hands on back as the other rests slightly on my chest as you traced the contours of my cleavage. Your back hand slowly crept up my back to my neck pulling me into you I smelled your scent which leaves me bewildered and in this moment alone I’ve submitted to your flow. Let me tell you of the things that you do to me, your mind moves me, and I’ve been dominated by the powerful emotions of this dance that I’ve only imagined with you.
This private affair in my imagination that takes me places at the beat of your heart, strumming life into my very existence. So profoundly, tender like whispers to my ear. It is a whole new language you speak to me when I am with you. The forbidden kind of love, that breathes in the silence of the night’s shadows. I can not sit again for the wonders of this dance have me in a complete happiness experienced here and now.Oh, the joys of the flesh longing to be near you again to caress you with ecstasy.  Where has the night gone already these past moments without you seem like centuries pardoned by days. My heart flutters with each palpitation of the beat of thine own. I write you this beautiful letter in appreciation and adoration of all the love you’ve given to me on this night where we’ve danced as one.
I long to bask in your tender gazes, our hands clasped together and the day I can call you my forever lover.  Looking into your eyes with such admiration, the harmonious recognition of your genuinely extended  love.  I can only entice you to give your whole heart purposefully. I toss and turn in the dead of night just before I lay down due to the effect you have on me.  You’ve delighted my soul in such a way that is unimaginable, only that of a visionary could see such beauty. In all your wonder you send me in awe and i am mesmerized by all your melodic wonders. It is without a doubt that i am full of certainty that it is you I was born to be with for the rest of my life.
May the joys of heaven continually shine on our path together in where once was strangers has magnificently grown into such a refined beauty.

Love Letter 7 - To My Husband - Heartaches

Dear Husband,

I come to you today because I have no one else to tell my secrets to nor do I wish to share them with anyone else. I always write letters of love and never of the pain and this one, this letter is about the pain that I suffer when you are away. Forgive me this once for the negativity, as I flourish in words….

It is not easy to be absent from you without pain. The feelings of love I’ve suppressed in fears that when the day comes to greet you I will be unable to sustain them. Rushing into your arms wind through my hair and pushing through crowds to see you once again. To kiss your tender lips, soft sweet chocolate lips. Out of the depths of my bewildered heart flows a tangible current of love, streaming through tears. Tears set free, form such a yearning to hold, see, touch, feel, and hear you.

As I sit here I pondered many thoughts of the time that I have shared with you. We’ve grown together and you’ve been my strong hold. I sit beneath the dim light of the lamp and the coolness of the evening and amongst the many shadows in this dark moment and I miss you.
My heart is heavy dear, with wonders of you and the day you’ve yet to be in my life forever. I envy the flowers of the garden that you’ve once walked amongst in my dreams, because the flowers stand so sweet yet so strong and alive. My dreams without you are tedious like a slow death, I awake at times with great sorrow and disappointment.  

I sit during a portion of my nights lost in this deep sadness of wonders. Wondering, of the day you’ve yet to write me back. You never write to me at all. You have not even made any effort to smudge not even a speckle of ink on a sheet of paper.

Pushing away my love, and all that is of me and in me and expressed passionately in every second of every moment of time with you. I sit here and I go through these photographs you’ve shared with me. I seek each one with answers, and it becomes stifling in the heart.

You've left me with this passion like a cougar that awaits her meal I peacefully go about continuously with such valor. In hopes that as I encounter this pain that I am able to face it with such frankness and bravery.

I shall end this letter with these thoughts. You have taken all real pain out of my life even during the deepest darkest most horrifying times you are with me. Your memory clings to me like an old book with its torn pages it still has its history and I feel an utmost gladness in these fond moments.

Sincerely, Your Wife – Sarah Saldana

Below is the song that inspired this letter... Enjoy!

My views and opinions on tattoos ...

So back when I was younger I was always asked about if I wanted to get a tattoo or if I ever thought about getting one. The answer is yes I pondered this thought many times and the pressure of wanting one was great! I wanted one so bad just to rebel against my mother because she never had one and she never believed in getting them and they weren’t for ladies. Apparently “whores” had them, prostitutes or people who had hard lives or were on drugs.  Some people get them because they want to change their persona from looking "Nerd to Geek " in which being a Geek is much cooler.  

I’ve even had people I worked with detectives, and such people in respectable job positions tell me that they wouldn’t accept food from people with tatoos and then I started to look at the people that I would come in contact with that had tattoos on their hands. Thinking does this person do drugs what if this person has aids, could this have any effect on me? 

As I grew out of that thinking method and just started to ignore things again I realized it wasn’t a great harm that someone did have a tattoo on their hand. But I have also learned that heroin addicts did hide their scars with tattoos but so did just ordinary people who have had accidents or birth marks or scars that they wanted to have hidden.

People get tattoos for different reasons another subject was the young adults that were getting what you call the “Tramp Stamps” this basically signifies that you "like" anal sex by getting this tattoo located on your lower back just above your buttocks. If you think about it tattoos are solicited as being sexy, or cool. So people associate tattoos with sex instantly. Especially in the world of photography because they aim to show off the tattoo but sometimes neglect the person and their beliefs or strengths or motives for actually getting the tattoo. 

People are also getting tattoos that are similar to each other to declare their undying love for one another as stated in this article here where they display Hebrew tattoos and foreign language.  http://hubpages.comhub/Tattoo_Ideas_Hebrew_Words_Phrases I believe even Angelina Jolie and many other celebrities have gotten their tattoos as such. I have had family that has had tattoos and they won’t remove them for their own personal reasons. Many websites like this one state that tattoos are a way to express yourself a style an art form in some degree I believe that is true but in others I do not. I believe that a tattoo is far more than just a piece of art work on your body.  

Tattoos stand for something far more deeper than just a piece of art work I believe that it stands for your heritage your race, your decree in the world this is how people look at it. This is why they refuse to remove them when asked to do so for work because they feel that they’re being stripped of their history their belief, and again this is how they demonstrate their freedom of the 1st amendment. “Freedom of Expression”

So why wouldn’t it be ok for me to get a tattoo right? I am old enough now and able to get one and now that I have had a rare look into the idea of it I am reluctant to do so. Why you ask, one because I have seen so many young teen -agers get them that I think it’s more for young adults than it is an adult I think it’s a stage we all grow out of. I believe it’s a desire you have at the moment but then you change your mind later realizing I wish I had not done that. Because when your children, see you doing things like this they will follow in your foot steps and to what extreme do you think they might go? See examples of what i mean by extreme behavior in the below link…. Not only that but what are you opening their world up too?
Now that you know my decision on the subject how about my other view “Devils Advocate” Yes I love the tattoos I love the way they look and I am all for “Freedom of Expression”. I believe if I were to ever get a tattoo it would be something like the one here in this photograph to the right, because if I ever had to defile my body it would be like this something beautiful.  

Now back to the “non-Advocate” view I’ve expressed many of the rare reasons why I wouldn’t get a tattoo and some of the reasons why I would but here I will also give you my religious view God made us in his image why would I want to change that or alter it? Oh I can hear you grumbling already! Lolol don’t worry I am not judging you these are just views as you state your tattoos are expressions so is my writings. I am expressing my differences and my beliefs, and my opinions as you are with tattoos which prove my point that tattoos are more than just Art. Some tattoos demonstrate the more tribal art like below and as stated and expressed in the first link provided above. 

In the second link above it’s funny they will show you a few of the many meanings of what tattoos mean, but they never tell you or show you the gang related tattoos. Why is this? Why would anyone who is so defensive to standing up for their gang or standing up for their barrio or their city? Here are only a few reasons why they are hiding the meaning beneath the art because this is how they communicate with each other to decipher who is who and which involvement with which gang and how many years you have been in that gang. I asked once, what that tear drop meant underneath a young man’s eye, he said it meant that he had killed someone. It was part of his initiation to the gang involvement.  

There are other gangs and I have to also be careful of what I share because of the privacy of others. There are so many individuals who are even tattooing themselves on their forehead and underneath their hair so when they shave their head it is on their head to be seen for all to know where they came from. But the thing about this is that those same people have suffered have lived a hard life and have come from a background with a rough upbringing. Which in my opinion is probably the worse reason to get a tattoo because when those people that have hurt you die you’re stuck with the remembrance of it all? Then there are those that can’t get a job because their face it tattooed unless you’re working in a tattoo parlor.  

I’ve assisted many people in my young age with resume writing these are grown folks in their 40’s and above that don’t know or forgot to write a resume. How do you think I feel when I am sitting next to these people who have had time to learn but don’t put enough effort into themselves they don’t love themselves enough to educate themselves to do their activisms wisely. No for years the Hispanic heritage is always the parents looking to the oldest to take care of them when they grow old.  

I am facing these issues now in my life and what difference does a tattoo make? Sure I can have my say in the world right, but what real difference is it doing? Other than making a statement of where I am from. I wish these gangs would do greater things than what most of them do. Another psychological view is that some people like pain, and or suffered pain in their life and when you get a tattoo it is like if you have one it some how eases the pain because the person feels that they have let it out their say without words. Their point of view without having to say anything.  

Any how these are my views about tattoos and it’s not about “gangs” that is for another blog someday. So if you are thinking of getting a tattoo either way I hope that I have not discouraged you but have opened your eyes and mind to the some hidden meanings to having a tattoo.

“If you would like to have your company information below this blog as to where people can go when deciding to get a tattoo please let me know and I will post it. Thank you!”
