First off though, the credits. Rolling Stone recently did an interview with him. I found it highly entertaining and enlightening. Makes me want to move to LA (Lower Alabama) and hang with him! Check it out!

Rock knows his fan base: “45-50-year-old girls wearing extra-large T-shirts — they’re my bread and butter.”

Kickacts interviews Axel Jordan!

Recently James Lowe from Kickacts Magazine sat down with one of the very exciting artists on the scene.

 Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and where you can be found at on the web.

 

AxelJordan pictureHello Kick Acts!  My name is AxelJordan.  Musician born, raised and currently living in NYC … Land of Creativity!  You can find me online via my website, www.AxelJordan.com  My website is a directional page so be sure to take a look at my social media icons; Facebook, instagram, youtube etc. 

 

Who are your musical heroes, influences & why?

 

Growing up in Brooklyn NY, I would say the music mostly heard around me was Hip Hop & R&B.  I can definitely say that not only influenced my music but also my outlook on life in music.   There’s a certain amount of honesty in Hip Hip and R&B.  You say what you’re feeling.  Whether it’s love or pain or anger, the music translates those emotions.  I have a lot of respect for that and the artist who do it well.  Mix that with Pop culture and you have AxelJordan!

 

 Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in playing music? Any pitfalls they should avoid?

 

My best advice to give is the advice I still currently live by …  Continue doing what you’re doing.  Not everyone is going to understand it.  Not everyone is going to respect it.  And you might feel alone a lot of the time.  But in that silence and solitude, you begin to really find yourself; you begin to understand your creativity and the role it plays in the world.  So keep going  and keep striving.

 

 Do you have a greatest gig story you’d like to share?

 

Man I have a bunch of pretty awesome stories. HA!  For a while, I would bring my guitar to pretty much every underground spot in NYC to play my music.  Didn’t matter the venue, crowd .. as long as it had a mic and a stool.  I’m talking, I went to Hip Hop music venues, Soul & Gospel venues, Rock & Roll bars.  I knew I didn’t really fit in and was often asked if I was sure I knew where I was.  But I’d stay and wait for my name to be called.   When it was I’d grab my guitar and head to the mic to sing.  Sometimes you could hear the confusion in the crowd.  Sometimes you could hear the annoyance from the crowd.  But I wanted to sing and I wanted them to hear it.  So I’d sing  it would never take long before they gave in and started to enjoy it.  I was living out my passion and creativity and for the most part other creative minds understand that and can find the joy in it.  

 

 On the same token as the above question. How about a “worse gig” ever story.

 

Nah, I don’t have “worst gig” stories.  I mean of course, it’s a gig presentation of creativity and it doesn’t always come out the way you’d like but it’s all just to get better from.  So no worst gig stories for me.

 

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of boobs?

 

Creatively speaking, once you open up the doors of your creativity, it all comes pouring out.  So I spend most of time learning about that.  I make clothes, I paint. I dance.  I do love to learn so I’m always open to new knowledge.  And I love to have fun too.  I like bowling and watching comedy.  Anything funny has my immediate attention.

 

What do you think about the present music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

 

I don’t get to caught up in those arguments.  The music is the music.

  It’s hard enough for musicians and artist alivento truly express themselves and get noted for it.  Why spend time trying to break that down because it might not be something we personally understand?  Instead, I choose to appreciate the music and even the commentators.  The judgements are equally as important as the praise.  If understood and appreciated, they both lead you in path with the best you.  

 

Hypothetical situation. You’re stranded on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the girls… Is it Ginger, Mary Ann or Mrs. Howell and why?  

 

Why choose just one???  What about all three???  Mary Ann is a cutie though … something about those pigtails …

 

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!

 

This past month I got the chance to release my first music video for my debut single “Release You”.  Working on, shooting and releasing the video was such a great step for me in my career thus far.  I’ve been singing and working on music since I was a kid and to see my music & my vision come to life in that video was really pretty awesome.  I am truly blessed and grateful for that.  If you haven’t done so, check it out on my website, www.AxelJordan.com

Looking forward to making more and the release of my album in the Spring 2014.

 

Till then,

Keep Loving & Keep Shining!

 

“Achy Breaky Heart” Hip Hop makeover

Posted onFebruary 12, 2014

Billy Ray Cyrus, aka BRC has just busted out a new version of Achy Breaky Heart with Rapper “Buck 22”. It’s pretty cool for what it is. I hated the first version but it didn’t stop Billy, I mean BRC from making a crap ton of money off the song. Here is the hip hop version and the video says it’s NSFW but I have viewed “every disgusting frame of this movie …twice” (Is anyone going to get this Porky’s 2 movie quote??) and I don’t see what the hoopla is over it.

Ten Questions with “Brian Psalms”

Recently James Lowe from Kickacts Magazine sat down with one of the very exciting artists on the scene. The following is a written interview we conducted with the artist.

 

image 3Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and your band and were you can be found at on the web.

You can find me on the wed at @brianpsalms for the twitter  on facebook at www.facebook.com/brian.psalms ,and we are working on the website and it will be when finished www.brianpsalms.com but it’s not ready yet.

 Who are your musical heroes, influences & why?

Stevie Wonder is my music hero, because his music just hits you in the heart.  I love how Jay Z has been able to stay in the game so long even at 40.  And there’s more, but I don’t feel like talking about them.

 Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in playing music? Any pitfalls they should avoid?

Just have fun. Music is suppose to be therapeutic, and yes you are suppose to per-fect your craft, but just have fun.

 

Do you have a greatest gig story you’d like to share?

Actually, my first gig was a big one.  I wasn’t sure how the people were going to react to Christian rap, but they went crazy, and I got a lot of compliments on the lyrics.  I was performing Still I Stand Remix.

 

On the same token as the above question. How about a “worse gig” ever story.

Really don’t have any worse gigs yet.

 

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of boobs? 

I am an athlete and I love sports.  I love football, and basketball.

 

What do you think about the present music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

I like the present hip hop scene because all the beats sound like their from Down South, and being from Texas that is right up my alley.

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear… Like their hobbies or something like that…

I speak in tongues in my prayer life.  When I tell people that they always look at me funny unless their from a full gospel church.

 Hypothetical situation. You’re stranded on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the girls… Is it Ginger, Mary Ann or Mrs. Howell and why? 

I watched the show when I was younger, but can’t quite remember the characters.

 

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!

I hope people will give God a little time in their life.  All God wants from you is a relationship, so if you can, put a little time out for him.

Since Dolly is her Godmother…Talk about a kid out of control…Miley is in a tailspin and looks like she is killing her career and going ghetto. Her video is obviously intended to shock people.
