Slangston Hughes is not a stranger on Reesa Speaks and if you are wondering why? It’s Because his lyricism and artistry as a person has not only made him a leader and sensation in New Orleans, but also positive influence to the community of this blog. He recently released his project “Dollar$ & Daialogue” this past February and I had a chance to really give it good listen and I’m impressed. Hughes describes the new project from the first release Money & The Message as a continuation of the dichotomy between the green paper that makes the world go round and achieving an internal balance within ourselves.
With Valentine’s day being around the corner, some may be avoiding the love in the air but I seem to embrace it. I came across an artist out of Maryland, Seph Ade who may change your mind about this often hated holiday. After listening to his EP “Love Acoustically” I found my love for music tickled by this beautiful talent. The EP was release late December of 2010 and has been quite the buzz around the Maryland area. Seph Ade uses his acoustically abilities and his soft voice to serenade your emotions and leave you with a feeling of desire whether you are in love or looking for it. I thought I’d share his talent with you, in hopes to make your week worth while.
