Hi listeners, and welcome to another edition of Weekdays with Murph! Today on the show, we're pleased to welcome super sweet, super talented singer/songwriter Katie Belle Akin. We'll talk with Katie about her career, music and anything she's working on that she can talk about. I've, as always, got my lovely and talented co-host/sidekick Emily with me, so let's get this thing started, y'all!
This month I'm going to Austin to play at SXSW! Check out my tour dates here! I just finished making the flyer. :-)
In other news, the Beat Buddy Guitar Pedal has released the video I made for them on Youtube! Last month they put it up on their facebook page and it got over 1,000 likes. I am working on more pedal demos at the moment so stay tuned for those. The Beat Buddy is a Drum Machine Pedal I use for songwriting, and practicing guitar. I basically can control the drum beat as I play a song. Check out the video for more info. This video is also featured on the Beat Buddy Website at http://mybeatbuddy.com/
This year I have also been playing at a lot of flea markets and farmer's markets in LA including the Melrose Trading Post, Altadena Farmer's Market, and So Cal Etsy Guild and I have caught the attention of an online magazine called Roots Revival Co! The magazine features small businesses, artists, musicians, and handmade crafts! With that said, I have an idea to start a blog on my website about my experience street performing. It will include info about where to busk, how to set up, what to bring, what songs to play, and what gear to buy!

25 year old Byron Tennell Reddick, born on March 30, 1989 is from a very small town in Mississippi called Friars Point. In his family circle he has 3 sisters and 1 brother. He graduated from Coahoma Agricultural High School. Byron is gay and he knew he was at an early age. In his own words, he explains why. “The way I knew of my preference, was because I was never attracted to women. I felt that all of the things a woman wanted from a man, I did too, such as being romantic, being protected, loved, being cared for and being submissive. That is how I came into this world feeling that way. I didn't come out until my first year of college because my biggest fear was coming out to my parents, because I knew how my mother felt about Gay people. She would make comments like, “God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve”. After hearing stuff like that made it hard for me. When I did tell her that I was Gay, she didn't understand it, but she accepted me, which made our relationship stronger than ever! My father and I still to this day, haven't talked about it”. Byron had an entourage of feminine friends who use to come and talk to him about their men problems. He says that he gave them advice on how to handle the situation until one day a friend suggested that he needed his own talk show, because being a gay man, he knew how a woman should be treated by a man. He adds that he knew how men assumed that they have the best of both worlds and at that moment, Byron says that is when it all clicked for him .
