Been a while since I last released a full project so from me to you, Never See (EP) is now available on ALL digital media outlets!!! This will be the first of many releases this year so be prepared to hear from me A LOT!! lol Been a wild ride along this journey so but abundantly blessed none the less! Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support me wholeheartedly along the way!
As the first quarter of 2017 is off to the races, I have been abundantly blessed with many promising opportunities on the horizon. 1st up is this beautiful collaborative effort by a burgeoning group of collectivists better know as Creating Conversation. Lead by Isaiah Jimenez and a team of like minded group first folks, they seek to bring unity to the community. Their vessel is a celebration of sorts through cultural & performing arts that feature talent grown right here at home (Tacoma, WA). I am proud to announce that I will be hosting this gathering of amazing talent alongside Isaiah come Saturday night, January 14th. For a better description of what the event entails and to purchase tickets, see below:
In a time where “love” has become a four letter curse word we want to change the fear attached to the word & unify like minded individuals at this event. Love & Unity is an annual showcase of talent in Washington state; with a specific message of spreading Love & Unity through different variations of art. These forms of art range from painters, to recording artists, graphic designers, poets & comedians. This event is all ages and provides a separate space for our 21+ crowd. Sounds will be in abundance throughout the evening and will set the vibes for the night. Come sing, dance, vibe & enjoy the show which will feature some of this generation’s most prolific artistry this area has to offer. See y’all January 14, 2017! Love & Unity ✌

The year 2015 was full of leaps and bounds for my music career thus far. From being a part of an album [Words Paint Pictures] that charted twice on the billboards, to rebuilding my catalog from the ground up, to having 2 singles in rotation on internet and standard radio stations. Those of you who have followed my career thus far know that I value and appreciate the small accomplishments just as much as the big. This is no different. I’m happy to have not only been eligible but approved and accepted into The Recording Academy. For those who are unaware, The Recording Academy is the organization that assembles and hosts the Grammy Award ceremony every year. 2015 was a year full of planning in the midst of the grind. For 2016, I’ve committed myself to execution of those plans! For what good is an opportunity if you don’t deliver? HUGE thank you to everyone who continues to support all of my musical risks and endeavors. Let’s make 2016 even more grand than the previous year! As always, walk by faith, not by sight.
Blakk Soul’s take on the popularized backdrop to the Bryson Tiller track, “Don’t”.

AFTER HOURS (Explicit)
(PROD. BY RAIDER)
If you were planning on giving last week’s single “#Ready,” ample time to stew within the depths of your passionate, 90’s nostalgic loving souls, GUESS AGAIN! To Follow up the wave, Blakk again releases another 90’s sample driven selection of chill trap. Whether your suitable vice be, lighting a tightly rolled J or a Heavenly scented candle, “After Hours,” will make for an appropriate soundtrack for an evening of passion. Hope you know how to surf 🙂
A period of pseudo-tranquility is usually indicative of the storm to follow. The new release entitled, “#Ready” featuring Swanks was no shortcoming to the analogy. The powerful yet jazzy vocal styling of Blakk Soul over a chopped 90s sample jam is like a match made in heaven. Blakk describes the passion driven tease of mental stimulation that [as we all look forward to] will lead to physical euphoria. “Baby, flowing since the morning been sexting me…4 play’s an all day affair with me.” These seductive lyrics are accompanied by the melodic and straightforward lyricism of rapper boldly known as SWANKS. Available for stream below:
With 3 sold out shows in the books, July 24th should be a night to remember! Prepare for a night of croon ushered in by the likes of Zach Bruce, J. Charles and Blakk Soul, as they cover some of the most memorable R&B songs of the 90’s and early 2000’s, accompanied by the live sounds of band NSB! Hosted by the hilariously funny Ralph Porter.

If you’ve yet to check out the new single, “Rewind” produced by Grammy nominated Kuddie Fresh, your ears are in for a treat! For all the true R&B/Soul lovers this is for you.
With the demand of the people, I finally decided to try my hand at a “Me, U & Hennessy” remix (originally performed by Dej Loaf). So hit that light switch, light a candle and some incense, and catch the vibe. Check it out and let me know what you think.
