    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Demetria McKinney & Diamond Strawberry

    in Music

    Demetria McKinney is a triple threat in the truest sense of the term. She is an award-winning actress who has played diverse roles on the big and small screens as well as the stage. She is a gifted singer with a rich voice requiring zero studio enhancements. And she is a skillful songwriting who thoughtfully expresses emotions in a way that instantly connects with listeners.


    Widely known for her role as “Janine Payne” on the hit TBS sitcom “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” which has taped over 254 episodes and received five NAACP Image Awards for Best Sitcom, Demetria can currently be seen on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” as the newest cast member. Mckinney also has reoccurring roles on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids” and TV One’s “The Rickey Smiley Show” sitcom.


    Even though her acting career keeps her very busy, Demetria always makes time for her first love: music. Over the past few years she has recorded and performed with artists such as Musiq Soulchild and Anthony David. Demetria has also opened for Anthony David as well as such R&B mainstays as R. Kelly, Dwele and Tank.  Now, after spending time perfecting her craft and tapping fully into her musical voice, Demetria is set to release an EP – “Officially Yours” – to give music fans just a taste of what she has to offer.

    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Ceaser & Dutchess (Black Ink Crew) + TK-N-Cash

    in Music

    Ceaser is the owner of Black Ink. Since he first acquired Black Ink in 2011, Ceaser has continued to expand his business and has worked on turning Black Ink into a brand. Born and raised in the Bronx, Ceaser struggled between the pull of the streets, and his passion for artwork. When his daughter, Cheyenne, was born, Ceaser decided that he wanted a better life for his daughter. Opening Black Ink changed Ceaser’s life forever. Now, Ceaser struggles to find the balance between running Harlem's only black-owned tattoo shop, his on-again/off-again relationship with Dutchess, and the drama that lives between the walls of his shop.Though his friends call Ceaser an "asshole" (he even has it tattooed on him), underneath the tough exterior is a guy with a big heart who knows how to keep it real.


    Dutchess is the only female tattoo artist at Black Ink, but that doesn’t keep her from being a force to reckon with. Dutchess is a Southern Belle from Lincolnton, North Carolina. She graduated at the top of her class and went on to receive a degree in Business Management. Whether it was her business skills or her eye for art, this sexy and powerful woman has had a hold on Ceaser’s heart from the beginning. Dutchess, who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, has had her up and downs with not only Ceaser, but with the other crew as well. However one thing's for sure…whether it comes to modeling gigs or to tattooing celebrity clientele, Dutchess makes sure that all eyes are certainly on her.

    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Tank + Melanie Amaro + 12 Til

    in Music

    Strength can often be found in the midst of struggle. It's in those moments of hardship that we fully understand who we are and what we're really capable of. Grammy Award-nominated R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Tank realized that in late 2012. While working on the TGT super group album, Three Kings, with Ginuwine and Tyrese, he simultaneously endured a string of revelatory personal shakeups.


    "Those were some trying times from a relationship standpoint," he admits. "We were finally getting TGT together, and I was going through it personally. Everything was happening all at once, and it was a lot to face. I went through this headache and heartbreak, but I emerged in a better place. That's when music started coming to me. I was initially trying to hide everything behind this heavy and intense 808 vibe, and I leaned towards my strengths instead. I started playing piano and drums again as well as adding live instruments. In the past, I've only made music in the middle of a storm or on my way into one. This was the first time I made music under sunshine. I've been blessed to have a great story and testimony now."


    Tank came out on the other side with that "story"—his sixth full-length solo album, Stronger [Atlantic Records]. In between releasing Three Kings and touring, he spent the better part of 2013 building his latest body of work. Whether he was on a plane, in hotel rooms, or at home in Los Angeles, he completely submersed himself in the creative process. Tank also found an inspiring collaborator in the iconic Jerry "Wonder" Duplessis [The Fugees, Shakira, Miguel]. While in Jerry's NYC studio one night, the pair simply clicked.

    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Natalie "The Floacist" Stewart & DJ Young Music

    in Music

    Born in Germany to Jamaican born and British raised parents, Natalie ‘The Floacist’ Stewart is a natural. The trained actress and slam champion poet, she made her stage debut at age three.  As a graduate of Richard Branson’s BRIT Performing Arts and Technology College where she earned the title of ‘Student of The Year.'  The Floacist later went on to invite her long time friend Marsha Ambrosius to perform at a poetry event that Natalie was headlining along side her renowned performance poetry group ‘3 Plus 1.'  That night, Floetry was born.  As the creative mastermind of Floetry, The Floacist acted as manager and PR agent.  She then managed to take her blossoming artistic venture from South London to Philadelphia and ultimately, to the World.  So, ??after five years of non-stop, sold out, touring and selling well over 1 million copies of three released albums and a live album DVD, Floetry moved on to solo ventures. ?


    The Floacist's third album 'RISE of the Phoenix Mermaid was released on March 18th 2014. RISE of the Phoenix Mermaid has been inspired, as always, by my personal walk and journey through the pages of the day to day parable that is my life! RISE is a compilation of a few songs that I wrote in 2006/7, at the point of the end of Floetry, that I didn't have the opportunity to share but have now reworked and finally am delighted to present to my audience, as well as a few completely new songs that I manifested in 2013, and I have also converted some of my favorite spoken word pieces into the Floetic ethos of song structure.

    Tough Talk Christian Radio

    in Christianity

    Tough Talk Christian Radio with Host Tony Gambone and his guest Gwen Gistarb & Brad Raney:


    Gwen Gistarb - Retired Educator of 28 years - Previous Radio Host for 2 years - Author of The Lesson Plan - A Workbook for Mothers and Teenage Daughters - Creator of JAD Source Program - Embrace the Spirit of Girls - Speaker/How to Give a Girls Summit CD Program It is important for parents to identify the thin line between being a parent and a friend to their children.  My latest book, "The Lesson Plan" was created to help mothers to redefine their position as parents to our current generation of teenage girls.  Now, different from before, my need to make a contribution will hopefully begin to redirect relationships between mothers and daughters.


    Brad Raney - Personal Performance Partnership - formed after 25+ years of coaching, training, recruiting, and igniting the success of others. My business is founded on the three spiritual gifts I discovered I had several years ago: writing, speaking and empowering those around me to be the best they can! I have written two books: Improve Your VOWELS, Improve Your Career! The A,E,I,O,U's of Finding Your Perfect Job! - released in 2010, now sold on 3 continents; Reach YOUR Peak! Become CEO of Your Success! - just released in Jan 2015 in regular and e-book formats - selling very quickly nationwide. The first one came about by accident after I shared my VOWELS tenets with several hundred job seekers at a career expo workshop. I was encouraged to use the info for job seekers and a launched a website, wrote the book and got it on the market within a few months. The second book is a result of four years of speaking, training and other experiences and takes the VOWELS back into the personal improvement space where they were born.
