Celebrated Black history month, appropriately by touching the mic for ArticulateNYC’s “HER”story open mic, which focused on celebrating women of color. I was more than honored to bring Tunisia on stage at The Nest with me, for the first song I’ve actually created with someone — and a woman at that! ArticulateNYC’s founder, Anya, is also a woman and that just made it all sweeter.
This soulful song is sure to put you in the grooviest of moods. Laden with heartbreak, the song still somehow feels a bit upbeat. “Here’s something that you should know… you’re the one to blame,” is released as a beautiful exhale.
You cannot deny the vibes at the Word Vomit Poets open mic. Each Tuesday, artists pile into Moca Lounge in Harlem and fill up the seating, bar stools and open mic list with an incredible amount of respect for the mic and each other. The hosts keep a tight check on timing, ensuring that the show moves along and the crowd stays entertained. For the few patrons in the crowd who aren’t artists, there are participation games interspersed throughout the evening.
