If you haven’t heard, I recently started hosting my own radio show, Divinity Roxx Radio streaming on BrigadeRadioOne.org. The show centers around my life as a musician and artist and the adventures, stories and ridiculousness I often get into while touring the world playing music, sharing inspiration and motivation. Of course, #OPVA (only positive vibes allowed) is the motto.
I’ve invited some of my good friends and fellow musicians and artists on the show for interviews and look forward to sharing their stories with you. I’ve been lining up some heavy hitters including many of my bass playing friends including the Funk Baba himself, Bootsy Collins.
Show number 3 is in the can and I have to say, this one is my favorite so far. I had the opportunity to interview the Funk Baba himself, Bootsy Collins and talk with him about his new album World Wide Funk which hit stores this week. The record is dope and features a host of talent including Stanley Clark, Victor Wooten, Dougie-Fresh, Big Daddy Kane, Chuck D and many many more. I caught up with Bootsy as he made his rounds in New York with DR Strings. DR hosted a signing party at Sam Ash on 34th St, and it was for sure a party. I even got a signed copy of World Wide Funk which is in heavy rotation here at the crib. You know the funk Baba always droppin wisdom so I am excited to share the gems he dropped on me.
I was also fortunate to catch up to a hot young bass player Alissia B who has been taking the bass world by storm. She was a major collaborator on the World Wide Funk album and just released a new single and video, Get Away. We chopped it up on location at Sam Ash and I have to say she is an incredibly talented producer, songwriter and arranger who is set to do some big things.
I also ran into the B Girls, aka The Bootsy Girls who have written and recorded with Bootsy, MC Hammer, Charlie Wilson, and a host of other heavy hitters in the music industry. They just released a new book, Be The Rock Star: 7 Steps to Make It Happen, and we chatted about the new book and the work they’ve been doing as motivation speakers.
I also introduce a segment of the show called ChadSay with the Say Say which features my good friend and partner in climb Chad who always got something to say about something. We grew up together in ATL and have been on many plenty of adventures together. He brings his opinionated perspective on everything from sports to politics to neighborhood interactions with the Say Say, and I’m sure you’ll be captivated by his voice.
I’m open to suggestions so if there’s somebody you want on the show, just let me know and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
