What if Wednesday wasn’t hump day

You may or may not know that I’m currently in a film and creative media master’s program to which I’m almost finished with said degree and hope to pursue a PhD in Autumn of 2015. You may not care, but then why are you reading this if you don’t care? Keep reading. You do. Anyways, I say that to preface this video was made during our Film Production II class as a project for Josh Link and Michael Dove, who are both very talented videographers. We were going to shoot more footage, but got bogged down with other projects so this is the footage of just the performance. I hope you enjoy starring at my face and my beautiful black guitar Jasmine. As always, enjoy yourself.
You’re still reading, good job!
I’m going to be releasing the song “What if” on my newest album TRANSMIGRATION in July. For now you can preview the song “take it or leave it” here take it or leave it

Southern Bastard

 

Photo on 2014-05-27 at 11.48 #2Thrice upon a time I was in a bar in Nashville Tennessee with my big curly jew(I’m not really jewish) fro, and was taunted by some ole southern buddy who didn’t like that I and my big black curly fro were having a good time in said bar. This is where the song “Southern Bastard” came from. This is where the aggressive lyrics of “wanna feel my fist in your face, wanna feel your jaw break, wanna feel my fist in your face, feel my knuckles warm embrace,” were spawned. I attempted to make it sound poetic, but of course that’s your decision. I had almost forgotten that I had created this little video for the song, as I attempted at it several times while at work(I can confess that because I no longer work there). The footage is from several road trips and I hope you enjoy yourself when you view it and your brain doesn’t explode from the four hundred and eighty pixels being thrown on your eyes.

Father’s Day 2014

TRANSMIGRATION BACK COVERMy father, William(AKA Bill) Speight, has been extremely supportive of my career as an artist since day one.  No matter your career, you know how important it is to have support from those close to you.  My father heavily encouraged me to make this album “TRANSMIGRATION” to which today I’m sharing one song with you titled “Take or leave it.” One reason I’m choosing this song, is because I don’t want the focus to be on me or my song, more on celebrating the established day with a gift in thanks to the years of encouragement and support.  To several people this may be a difficult day to celebrate, and I can only hope this song might bring some joy to those unmentioned.
