( Atlanta, GA )

Jordan was the first artist I featured on ‘Misunderstood Genius’ when I started the Project Inspire series. Since then, he has grown as an artist and as a person - it is truly apparent in his recent expressive artworks.

I followed up with him to discuss the changes in his perspective on life and art, both personally and professionally, while also touching on how he was able to re-ignite his fire within this last year to start off 2019 with a bang!

Be sure to check out the video along with his artwork in the links below!

Meet-Up: #Samoht ... 8.8%

Yo'!

A little back story, I had the pleasure of interviewing Samoht via FaceTime over a year ago after discovering him on Instagram - if you want, you can view that interview HERE.

Simply put, I knew the homie had talent after hearing a few of his songs on Soundcloud, but speaking to him allowed me to get an idea of his character and a little insight on who he is as an artist.  We planned to stay in touch since then and have maintained a banter consisting of jokes, encouragement, music, and other creative dopeness.

When it comes to artists that we discover - as fans of the music - you never know when the opportunity will present itself to actually meet them in person.

It is such a great feeling to have one of your favorite artists become one of your friends.

I'm truly grateful for these moments and experiences.

Here's a little of what we discussed while I was visiting in New York, check it out below:

Project Inspire III ... #LandonJordan

Atlanta based Session Guitarist and Side Man.

I introduce - Landon Jordan

" I've been exposed to great music my entire life.  Even though no one in my family plays, my Mom and Dad have an eclectic taste in music.  I was always interested in what was going on behind the scenes of these albums (what instruments were being played, who was playing them, etc).  These chameleons who played instruments behind the stars and away from the spotlight would become my heroes.

Fast forward years later and I'm doing just that.  I've been fortunate enough to work with people, such as the producer Major7 (Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, FKi, Ronnie Garrett (local legend), Tres Gilbert, and many more).  Working with local artists has been a big part of the past coupe years as well.  

There is something special about writing music with people from your hometown and creating something organic.  Being on the road not knowing what lies ahead and being in a studio helping artists' vision come to life - those are my passions.  I never take a second of it for granted.  I'm thankful every day to look down at my collection of hundreds of hotel keys and boarding passes knowing that it was my guitar that took me there.

2017 is gearing up to be an incredible year and I can't wait to see what it has in store. "

Artist of the Week ... #JordanAges

Artist with Passion, Artist by Choice.

I introduce - Jordan Ages

" God, sports, love, and music are what drives me the most, but I'm always inspired by hard work, hustling and never giving up.  I see a lot of artists or other entrepreneurs out there getting theirs and how they attract success and respect.  That's where I want to be.

I'm always grinding for success and by way of my artwork.  My work has a hint of abstraction and expression, which gives me my own style while my creativity takes my work to another level.  

My goals are to hit as many galleries in different cities as possible and have work commissioned by at least one known celebrity.  It's only the beginning for me - there's much more to come. "
