Alternative Singer & Songwriter: @IamKinney / @KinneyMusic

Written by Brittany Shawnté

Today, we have singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Kinney! Hailing from Annapolis, MD (DMV heyyy!), she spent a lot of time outside along the Chesapeake Bay, camping, sailing and playing. However, Kinney also has been performing her entire life. She started out as an acrobatic dancer, and went onto musical theater afterwards. She wrote poetry and music as well, but kept quiet about it for a long time. “It wasn’t until I was in a rock and roll show in Las Vegas with a bunch of incredible rock musicians from some iconic bands of the 70’s and 80’s that I made the decision to dive in deep and really give music a go,” Kinney said. “I was surrounded by people who had lived and breathed music their entire lives and I realized there is nothing else I could do that would fill my spirit in the same way.” Calling music a “universal language,” Kinney plans to use her music to bring about positive change!

@KollaborationDC’s 6th Annual Showcase & Competition

Written by Brittany Shawnté 

I was honored to be able to cover Kollaboration DC‘s 6th Annual Showcase & Competition this past weekend!

Kollaboration DC is one of many chapters of the non-profit organization Kollaboration, which seeks to empower Asian Americans pursuing artistic paths. A fellow Loyolaalum, Shanika Jayakody, serves as Associate Director of the organization and invited me to come out to check out the showcase. I love music of all genres, so I really enjoyed myself!

@DanityKane’s “No Filter Tour” Hits Silver Spring, MD

Written by Brittany Shawnté

This post should have happened a LONG time ago, but the busyness of life and work took over.  That shows just how far behind I am with a lot of blog work, but, now that I am FINALLY on vacation, I plan to catch up on a lot! Right now, I’m blogging from beautiful Montreal, Québec, Canada! There’s so much amazing culture and art here, and I can’t wait to share it with you guys! Plus I’m going to see the legendary DIANA ROSS tonight, so you know I’ll have some videos and pictures!

As we all know, Danity Kane has reunited, and they are steadily working on making some new music for the fans! Back in May (May 31st to be exact), I went to Danity Kane‘s No Filter Tour which stopped at the Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD, the closest stop on the tour to me.
