LYRICS

"Damn you've got lyrics"

The flood gates are open
there is no going back
a connection so deep so unexplainable
every moment that I dedicate to the thought has my mind reeling

Relentlessly i try to understand what it is that has happened to me
and every trip that i remember, falling,
every touch every unspoken answer
nothing it seems can quench the rain
Are you even trying to pull me under with the current?
or is this just the way that it was designed to be?
all of my expectations have been met, and i never even expected a thing
trust
i see no reason to doubt, even if the world decides to talk that’s for me to
contend with
words pieced together just to get the meaning
but none are available
just long as you can keep that smile
keep your promises to me
don't let me drown and leave me drifting
"I will give you my best even when you're at your worst"...Alicia said that
then she mentioned being a "Diary"
and if that’s what’s you need that’s what I’ll be
and every question, with honesty will they be answered
all I ask is that you take a step
so that i won't be out here on this clift alone
fazed so much I catch school girl butterflies
and I've told you that
you take me to that place
all your cool is gone and so is mine
and i don't think i needed to ask for you to cede it over to me, because in the same line you've rearranged my notions
every one sees the changes you've triggered in me
Know that its more than the physical
told you its all mental
you stimulating my mind
feeding me spasms that shudder through my heart
we've been walking this path ever so carefully taking steps slowly
and its gotten us to this place that only we can define
we both are flawed and that’s what makes it so delicious
the unpredictability of what could be
we can make each moment spent monumental, or we can keep it simple
traveling this road with you is all that I want to do
and we can see the world two times over but do I need it given ?
No,
it is just right
its enough.
And everything that comes after will be a journey, and we will review the possibilities and define them in our own way
cause those always mean the most

Music " What New & Hot"!!!!

April 29, 2010

I've been wanting to do music posts for awhile now, something that features my perspective on the music scene; just a few articles to get you interested in somethings that are out there that you may not know about or just need a different perspective about. I also have a few more people that I want to interview for you guys, let you & the world know about them and what they can bring to the table. So look out for those features in the coming weeks as well.

http://www.billboard.com/#/charts/hot-100?tag=chscr1 If you check out this link it will take to Billboard.com and you can check out the hottest songs for the week.

 

You will notice B.o.B feat. Bruno Mars in the lead. The track has a nice mellow undertone with amazing lyrics that keep you coming back for more, lyrics such as "Tryna chase skirts, living in the summer sun
This is how I lost more than I had ever won And honestly I ended up with none." The song is about a man that tells his woman that no matter where he goes none of the other women have nothing on her.

Dear World,

I am about to introduce you to the one and only Kris Bills. A multi-talented hip hop artist who resides in Chicago with an intricate rap style and perspective beyond the imagination.  Meet  Kris Bills....


mike watts photography

Spetra: How does it feel to be opening up for Lupe and B.o.B?

Kris Bills: I feel extremely blessed and fortunate for the oppurtunity to open for 2 of the best artist in the music world.

Spectra: What are your influences in the music industry?

Kris Bills: My number one influence is making quality music that everyone can enjoy without compromising myself or my art.


Spectra: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

Kris Bills: I see myself enjoying more of what the world has to offer. I see myself helping people and taking advantage of not being in school anymore.

Spectra: Would you say that you are getting closer to your dreams?

Kris Bills: My dream has always been to be the best artist I can be and the best performer I can be.  In that regard I feel I am currently living the dream. There are obviously higher goals I wish to achieve and I feel that I am on my way.


Spectra: What made you start rapping, and what gives you the drive to keep going?

Kris Bills: I started rapping because I wanted to be surrounded by the girls who listened to dudes spit in junior high school. After that I wanted to be better than them, so the girls would give me a bit more attention. That's what drives me today being the best I can be.

Spectra: What is your favorite line you ever spit?

Kris Bills: Depends on the mood I'm in.


Spectra: How did you come up with your rap name?

Kris Bills: My Rap Name is my name, slightly tweaked. My midlle name is Willaim and I shortened it to Bill and added an S. I'd like to clarify that it don't mean money.... if anything it means Bills(like Light, Cable, Water).


Spectra: What are your upcoming projects?

Kris Bills: I have a mixtape entitled "Aerial Assault" coming out on illcityblog.com on the 13th of April


Spectra: How do you describe your rap style?

Kris Bills: My Style is my style. I listen to so much different music and go through so many highs and lows in life that my style is affected daily.


Spectra: What do you want the world to know about Kris Bills?

Kris Bills: I want the world to know that I plan to give them something to enjoy. And I want everyone to remember to be themselves and think for themselves.


Well World,

You have now met the incredible KRIS BILLS!!

Sweet & Sour..... Sauce?

April 09, 2010

Sorry I made you guys wait so long...this has been a very hectic week for me......

With that said HERE IT IS:

The Interview I did with

"Sweet & Sour"

Even though they are not an actual production company YET, they still are talent worth watching.

When I first met them, I was walking with a friend and they stopped us and wanted to sing for us.

Me and her where thrown off a bit, because hey we did not know these guys, but they surprised us and they could sing.

I went back to ask them to try singing for some friends that made music. Little did I know that they made music as well.

They let me listen to some things, and then the rest is history....

Let me introduce you to: Jesse Pollom & Tracy Champion

Comprised they make up "Sweet & Sour"

Jesse Is originally from Chattanooga Tenn. and Tracy is from Greenville in East Tenn. They met in high-school, and after Jesse went to another high-school they had to split up. Jesse ended up going to Mtsu, and soon Tracy started to attend and they re-united and they both knew that they were going to pursue music, so they teamed up. And from what I have heard of their music so far that was an amazing idea.

Spectra: What is Sweet & Sour about your music? Where did you get the name?

S&W: Jesse said, "Well first of all I'm sweet and he's sour", "No I'm kidding", Tracy added "We Like Chinese food,honestly that is where it came from" Jesse ended with, "We wanted a name that was unique, you hear so many generic names today, and we wanted something that would stand out" "And with such a unique name they would like to think that the name does justice to their production style....



Spectra: What Kind of music do you make?

S&W: "Primarily rap, rap beats are our biggest thing especially as far as beats are concerned, pop, and R&B, because they want to go commercial and get there name out there and then eventually branch out to experiment with other sounds.




Spectra: Who have you guys worked with so far?

S&W: J.C!! ( Who is a rapper from California, that also went to MT http://www.myspace.com/therianjcole follow the link for more there) The Decepticon Gang, and Brantley Smith (http://www.myspace.com/brantleysmithmusic)




Spectra: What projects are you currently working on?

S&W: "Brantley Smith! They have known him for awhile, and they consider him one of the best that they are working with, ((link to this artist's Myspace is above)) He does R&B and Pop, and he is helping them learn more about the game with his connections.



Spectra: How will Sweet & Sour change the game?

S&W: "Diversity is something that we hope we can bring to the table, a lot of guys are just known for sampling,or the pop sound: you have your Timbaland's that cross over, but crossing over is less heard of, but we want to try to do everything, starting off with commercial music, and then maybe Neo soul ( which is what they want to branch off to do with Tracy) They want to do it all and judging from their music they might just...


Spectra: When I first heard your sound (beats) I was amazed at how your sound was different from others out there, what inspires the creative process for you S&W?

S&W: Tracy)) " The overall love for it, I was making tracks by accident in church when i was younger, I would get others to play what I wanted them to on other instruments, I get sick of hearing the same things over and over on the radio so that definitely inspires me to create something that is different , but not so unfamiliar that people won't like it. Jesse)) I second that, we still have to do commercial music, until we get established, but it still boils down to the over all love of it. Were not exactly platinum yet, we are still operating out of a dorm room, but we do it because we love it.


Spectra: What should the world know about S&W?

S&W: The biggest thing would be to hear us and to judge for yourself, anybody could talk and talk all day about how your different or how good you think you are, but it all comes down to the public, because at some point there will always be politics in the way, anything can be put on the radio because of who you know ,but when you are virtually  nobody's it all comes down to word of mouth, and you have to give us a chance."

 

During the interview Tracy's neighbor needed a bandage Lol because he hurt his finger while playing his guitar... he was so nice he even put it on, see these guys are talented and nice....


Spectra: Where do you see S&W in ten years?

S&W: Jesse)) "It's depressing to think that we would not be at the top by then, and have been there for a long time, you never know we could meet the right person, it can happen over night or gradually, you never know.

Tracy)) Like half a year ago I was thinking that there was no-way that I could get any better at making beats, because it's wonderful right now, everyday you get better because you have a drive for it, you do it for so many hours, it's like a job, and thats how I treat it.



Spectra: What advice do you have for others trying to get into music?

S&W: "Don't get discouraged, there will be so many times where you will have a person that shows interest, get your hopes up and its so easy to get to the bottom and say " i'm in a dorm room".... then consistency, and keep your ears open, when someone who has been their before gives advice, a lot of poeple like to help so.. just take advice from people that know more than you.

The love of making music is what drives them, and others like them, It drives them to be better at there craft, and someday soon it will pay off, so check out their Myspace, get to know them, be on the look out........ and that ladies and gentlemen is Sweet & Sour. They also have a Facebook fan page  check that out as well, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sweet-Sour-Productions/112375865445352?ref=search&sid=571991505.792590527..1
