A band needs YOUR help!!!

In the next 12 hours... this is done and over.. But this band, which has a friend of mine, Jaci (the lead singer) needs some help funding so they can make an album and video!!!!
As you know making music is NOT cheap! And they need all the help they can  get! They are SOOOO close to getting all the money. but unless I read it wrong.. they don't get the money if they don't raise ALL of it

EEKSS!! So they need your help! IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If all you can give is $1, they will apreciate it!! Watch the video and do what you can!

Songs of the Day.... good if you're struggling.

Decided to do TWO songs of the day.  Both by the same artist, Kirk Franklin.  He's an amazing gospel artist.  A FANTASTIC songwriter.  I'm telling you. He can say things in songs that help you understand things you've wanted to for a long.. .and he really puts his heart out there to show people they are not alone.

song 1:  "Hello Fear"  -- this song... i love it. We all deal with fear in our lives in some area. I know I am.  Just know as I write this... I'm realizing some things that i"m dealing with... wakes you up.

song 2:  "I Smile" -- another great song.  If you're having a bad day, listen to it.  The hardest thing to do when you're upset is smile. but sometimes its the most important thing we have to do.  Our minds are constantly beating us with negative thoughts, worry and doubts.  We have to force ourselves to think about different stuff.  So listen to this and smile.

follow these guys...


I'm not having the best night... so I'm not gonna say a lot.. but i will say if you are on twitter you need to follow world prayr  if you're a christian... or wanna know more about God.  They are great people. If you have a prayer request, tell them and they will pray with you and for you. And usually will share your request (anonymously) with their followers so you can get more prayers behind it.

Well they happened to share this verse with me tonight. and it's what i needed. waiting for answers.

Psalms 143:1

 Hear my prayer, O LORD; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!

Song of the day... Hall and Oates

A great song. Just listen to it.

"She's Gone' -- Hall and Oates

for those bad days.... listen to this.

Ooh wow this song struck my heart! Just got the latest album from Tyrone Wells Where We Meet and this song "Don't Be Afraid" came on.. and I fell in love instantly. One of those perfect songs. especially if you are having a hard time.. .for the past few days, weeks, years, whichever.
I get so passionate about artists that make these AMAZING songs and the world doesn't get to hear them.  It is an injustice that I can't stand for!!! I will never stand for!!!!!!!! Ever!!

So listen to this. and feel it, man.  It's powerful.  Tears in my eyes for sure.

song of the day: "More"

Welcome to another day of me not forgetting to do a song of the day!!!!

Today's song is by an amazzzinggg artist Tyrone Wells. I've had the pleasure of meeting him and seeing him live 3 times already (on this cruise The Rockboat) and I'll never forget it! He is OUTSTANDING live.  I can't put it into words. And he's just as awesome on album.

So check it out.  I doubt you'll regret it. And check out some of his other stuff if you can. he's a great singer/songwriter

hmm I wonder if I should start something..

So i'm sitting here jamming. Nothing new, really!! Except the fact that my neck is hurting, so I keep resting my head to relax it.. .and then popping up to share a song with a friend! HAHAHA not helping me relax my painful neck here, self....

But then it got me thinking..... maybe I should start doing that for people.  Tell me what's going on in your life.  What kind of music you like.. And I will try to pick a song for you that you can relate to.
because i KNOW for me, music helps say the things I can't say outloud. And better. And that always helps me cope with my problems.

So... I was kind of wanting opinions on if I tried to do that, would you want me to try and find you a song???
It'd be like mini therapy... for freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

free is good. think about it!

A thousand words.

Hey. had the day off so i spent it watching the voice and some movies from redbox. well i got "A thousand words". it has eddie murphy, who i adore, and it was pretty funny. but the thing is.... TOUCHING.
totally had me tearing up a bit at the end. didn't expect that. really makes you think. I definitely suggest it.

Song of the day: Nights in White Satin

A song of the day. I was watching the movie "Dark Shadows" with a friend and this came on.. and i just remembered how much i LOVE this song. It's powerful and heartfelt.
And i've been QUITE somber today (for reason I don't want to explain) but this song just hit the spot.
So it's my song of the day for sure

"Nights in White Satin" --The Moody Blues

Ok. I loveeeee Coldplay. really. my best friend got me hooked on them. (she loves anything British..) And the new album Mylo Xyloto is awesome! Seriously. buy it!!!!

Jagged Row: "Back Again" EP and Music Video by Jagged Row — Kickstarter

Hey!!! Another friend of mine is trying to raise some money to make an ep!!!! Be sure and check out this site with info!! Great people!!
If you can give, give!! if you can't.... then spread the word at least. All bands gotta start somewhere!!!

Jagged Row: "Back Again" EP and Music Video by Jagged Row — Kickstarter

The voice..... "hey i know that guy!!!"

So I've been a fan of the Voice since it came out pretty much!! Well I was catching up on the new season on hulu... and this guy gets up, starts talking about his life and such. I was only half paying attention at the time... he sang. I liked him, but he didn't get any button pushes. I would've hit mine... and then they ask his name... "Jeffrey James' andi go..... I KNOW THAT GUY!!!!

Not well.. but I've been following him on twitter for like 2 years. I remember listening to his demos a few years ago.  He's really grown musically! He has a lot of potential for sure. I think if he came back to the show in a year, he'd make it for sure.

But I wanted to tell you, so you could check him out!!!!!!!

And plus, if bands start following you on twitter (gosh i think a GOOD chunk of my followers are musicians/bands on there) check them out. You never know what you're missing!!!!

Jeffrey James 

ps... if you ever wanna know of some fun bands that you've never heard of... let me know. i know a TON!!!
