New Cee Lo Green & Lauriana Mae.. and Kendrell!

 

Good Morning Fashionistas!!

How’s everything? Happy Thursday to you! Today I have some running around to do. I started my day by calling my friend on the phone and gossiping about everything on the blogs! LOL I just wanted to reach out to you today and say hello. Last night Anthony and I went to the gym after we finished work. So to continue my workout plan I will be going again today, then Anthony and I will go get manicures and pedicures. I have a meeting at 4pm with a a new artist on Sony Music. They reached out to me and interested in ME styling on this project.  I’m bringing my assistant Marcelle with me to the meeting. I want him to see the other side of styling cause it’s just not about being creative and coming up with looks. You must be knowledgeable about contracts, finances and business period! A lot of aspiring stylists forget about this part of the job and honestly this is the MOST IMPORTANT part of the job to me. I’m excited that Cee Lo Green and Lauriana Mae song “ONLY YOU” is getting amazing reviews! The song is available to buy on I-Tunes on February 5th!  The music video will be out everywhere on the week of Valentine’s Day! See below a audio/video that the record label released which includes photos from the video set for the song. Also here’s a picture of us at the gym last night!

I’m so Thankful

 

Wassup.. How’s everything going? I hope all is well. I just got back to NYC. I went to Washington, D.C. on Saturday to do our Fabulous Sylvester show at the Howard Theater. The preparation for this show took a lot of work. Even though we’ve done the show here in NYC a couple of times, but the venue in D.C. was 5 times larger. So, we added some new parts to the show for D.C. The show was sold out! We couldn’t believe it. So many important people was there! CEO of BET Debra Lee, CEO of TVONE and Radio ONE Cathy Hughes and of course the magnificent Reggie Van Lee. He’s been so kind to us from the beginning.  We felt so blessed and grateful that so many people supported us and believed in our project. I told yall that this show came about after Anthony having a vision of doing this and he approached some producers to help him and they said No. So he told me and I was like look WE can do this on our own! After selling out 2 shows in NYC, now in D.C. it’s kind of overwhelming. Anthony and I balance each other out cause I’m more direct and business savy and he’s the same but not as aggressive. Most people only get to see the final product, but this is a lot of hard work. With both of our careers,  in the past 2 months collectively we’ve had a lot going on outside of Sylvester in our own careers. So much that it really caused a strain on our relationship to find balance. I work so much and I have my events.. He works so much he has his events.. and sometimes the schedules conflict. What I’m thankful for is that we love what we do and working together and accomplishing things together make us find the Love back. If you know me .. I’m very impatient and I like to get and see results on everything QUICK! Anywho.. This month has been amazing. So Thankful to GOD! I’m happy that I was able to do achieve my goals with the one I love and MAKE MONEY doing it, but as we are growing as businessmen it allowed us to hire our creative professional friends apart of our team.  Even though I’m a stylist, creative director etc I’m very knowledgeable when it comes to contracts and etc! I’m living my dream and it makes me feel good to help someone else grow too.  Meghan does the makeup in the Sylvester Show. My assistant Marcelle came and my best friend Summit came and helped with selling the merchandise. We brought down the whole cast and band to D.C. which was 15 people for 3 days. They enjoyed the experience.

Now, I just got back like an hour ago and I have to prep for one of my clients. She has an event of Feb 2. Then, I just received some amazing news. Remember when I went to LA at the beginning of this month?!? Well I shot a music video for CeeLo Green and Lauriana Mae for the song “Only You”! CeeLo just tweeted the artwork for the single. This is going to be the first single of his new album which features my client Lauriana Mae. This is going to be her introduction to the world. I’m so excited for the world to get to know Lauriana Mae. I’ve been working with her for over a year now. She was on P.Diddy’s show Starmaker that he had a few years ago. Her voice reminds me of a Amy Winehouse, Adele, Chrisette Michele mixture. Please support her cause she’s really talented!! I’ll let you know when the video comes out.. supposed to be around Valentine’s Day! Oh, Last thing.. My Birthday is coming up.. FEBRUARY 6!! wink wink  Check out some pics from the D.C. Show and The artwork for Ceelo and Lauriana single!

Remember to Never Give Up on your dreams.. when people tell you NO.. Just smile and Say to yourself.. what you don’t see in me someone else will and it’s your lost YOU PORCH MONKEY!

Things Are Happening..

 

Good Morning Yall,

What’s going on in yall world? I got so much to tell yall! Well I came back from Boston On January 2 to NYC and went straight to work. I had 3 days to prepare for a music video shoot in LA. I can’t tell yall who the shoot was for yet, but the video will be out around Valentine’s Day and it’s going to be a BIG VIDEO!! Preparing for this was a challenge cause I was searching for this one Item and the designer wasn’t returning my phone calls, emails, tweets  even texts. I thought maybe he was out of the country, but I was in a situation cause I already submitted the outfit I was going to style in the video to the record label and they loved it!! So, now I needed that look. I was stressed out! I couldn’t sleep properly cause I was thinking of what I was going to do. It even got to the point I was considering of having a replica made. I take my job very serious. I’m responsible of someones image to the world. I try my best to make my clients feel like everything that they dreamed of before they were famous and when its happening I don’t want to disappoint them. So the time was ticking and on the day before me leaving to LA I still didnt have the outfit. I decided to go to his place unannounced and when I did some girl answer the door and I was like I’m here to see the designer and she said “Oh, he’s here”. Yall should have seen his face when I walked around the corner!! I was like ” Did you not receive my emails or calls?!? I need this look cause the record label already decided on this.”  He made up some story like he had to ask his friend and I was like well do what you go to do cause I’m not leaving without it. So he made me pay a fee for it, but it’s whatever mission was accomplished!! I then went to pull some other items just for back up. While I was out my best friend Summit met up with me. Summit is one of my closest friends. We’ve been through a lot. It was good to see him cause he works just as much as I do. We went to eat at BBQ’s and Sebastian surprised us and met us there. We ate, got drunk, talked shit and laugh. I enjoyed my homeboys before my flight to LA the next day.

I went to LA, on the way to the airport I checked in with my Moma and Granny and let them know my whereabouts. (Don’t laugh! I’m still a southern boy) I was excited. I’ve been working my ass off and I’ve been going through some personal issues, and I always seem to find happiness when I’m working. 2013 is starting off right! The flight to LA was long 6 hours and this fucking baby on the plane was so loud. Once I got to LA and to the hotel I realized I stayed at this hotel before when I did video shoot in the past. It was cool. I kept having little moments to myself like” wow, God is really answering my prayers”. I did this whole job all by myself. On set the next day I witness a star performing right before my eyes. It felt great to see the growth  from the begininng of speaking to my client over a year ago to now. Blessed. I got so sick after the shoot. I ate the wrong stuff on set. The next morning morning my tummy was hurting and Iwas throwing up over and over. The bad thing about it was that I had a flight back to NYC the same day. Once I got to the airport the flight was 3 hours delayed! I was so OVER IT.  I didn’t get back to NYC until almost 2 am. Well, today the job ain’t over. I got to do my returns.  Fun right?!?  NO. So I told yall about my New Years Resolutions right.. OK .. I’m going to speak to this actress today thats going to be going to the TONY Awards. I think she maybe nominated for lead actress once her show opens. Some more exciting things are on the way.. Do yall remember my shoot with Dawn Richard? Well, the cover of that magazine and Blog will be out this month. When I find out that it’s released I’ll let you know. Don’t forget that our show Fabulous, One More Time A Sylvester Concert show in DC is this month. January 27, 2013 at the HOWARD THEATER.. Buy your tickets here http://thehowardtheatre.com/show/2013/01/27/fabulous-one-more-time-a-sylvester-concert/  I hope that yall have a great day. Never Give up on your dreams.. No matter how hard it may seem I promise you with prayer and hard work ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. Trust me look at me . I’m not perfect, I sometimes I have the worst attitude, my mouth can be disgusting, but I’m a work in progress and a young man that recognizes my flaws and I strive to be a better person everyday! I love You..
