Be REAL Up Front

Yea, I know you’re getting your hustle on. The big talk makes you sound good. The name droppin seems like its the cool thing to do, but I’m not that baby whose just now gettin the feet wet.

Maybe gettin over on people is your thing, maybe it’s not, but I will say this, if you are going to approach me, come to me right. Come to me professional. Come to me like you have some sense. Don’t assume that I’m an idiot or just because I’m a Black sista that I’m not business savvy. That goes for my team as well.

Don’t attempt to downplay what I do because what I do is my way of living. Everything I do is of strong value. Just be up front with me.

My Momma always taught me not to beat around the bushes. So, I say the same to you, don’t beat around the bushes with me.

It’s just like confronting a person after they did something to you. When you confront somebody, you don’t go to a third and secondary party, you go to the primary person and confront them. After all, we are all grown here. And if you are not the legal grown, you still want to practice being up front with people and with some sense.

It was on my mind. Just being up front because somebody has to, might as well be me!

Songwriting is more than just writing lyrics!

20130207-104724.jpg

Its actually writing a SONG! A song that has a hot melodic structure, strong content, movement, consistency in verse quality, smooth transitions, marketability, a strong catchy hook, a unique concept that reaches the market in which you are trying to reach, vocal production, vocal arrangements, conviction and feeling, and last but not least, growth.

After you finish with the song, it should have the ability to stand the test of time.

This is what songwriting is. Songwriting is what makes the song complete. As a creator in lyrics, you have to take in account all these areas that I have listed above. One feature of it is just as important as the next feature. They are all needed in order to come to the product finale of a stellar hit marketable song that can be placed in a variety of multi-media.

Songwriting is not easy for those who think it is. When you take into account the characteristics, its very tedious. It is imperative to be a student and stay on top of hot topics, melodic structures, dynamics and animation within a song. Music is constantly changing, you must know how to change with it.

Writing songs is in my DNA. I understand what it takes to put together a great song, a hit song. I have a formula, but my formula may not be the same as yours. It is something that one must find as you focus in on your craft.

Its so important for people to understand what songwriting really is. I’m writing this to open up the minds of writers that its way bigger than what you may see on the surface. You are putting together a film, a scene and in that film and scene, you have to see the whole picture not just one aspect of it.

Paint the masterpiece of your song. Fill in the darker darks and the lighter lights. Let the audience know where the light source is coming from and where the shadows will hit. Choose your medium well, your target market. accomplish the goals of every stroke to gear towards that market while maintaining the identity and personality of the subject matter. The concept and you as its host, must be one. I know you can hear it. break down and build to inherit its proximity (the art term). It is a beautiful thing!

Models’ Basketball League

LeXXah Drew Basketball 411 – Bio

Image LeXXah Drew is a talented and gifted phenomenal basketball player who would be a great asset as a person and player to any professional women’s basketball team. As a point guard/shooting guard, she sees the floor very well and has exhilarating speed, which is very deceptive. She has a quick first step and is hostile on defense. She has great active hands and footwork with a unique way of stealing the ball and getting deflections. LeXXah is strong, agile and fearless in taking the ball in the hole. With her great speed, she is able to slash in the lanes and find the open cutter or open man out on the perimeter to make the layup or knock down the open shot. LeXXah also has a nice jumper, which makes her not only a threat on defense, but on offense as well. LeXXah is very athletic, a solid decision maker and not afraid to take the big shot. She is coachable, is willing to work hard & smart, loves to hustle and she is in solid basketball shape.

LeXXah has had the luxury of being not only a basketball player, but a basketball Coach and basketball Referee. LeXXah was a 4 year varsity basketball player in High School, played for Northern Kentucky University for 2 seasons & WBCL Atlanta Battlecats, Semi-Pro for 1 season. In her Junior Yr. in High School, she was the Most Improved Player, a Western Kentucky University Lady Topper ALL-Star for the South team, Blue Chip Camper at Bellarmine University, JV Summer Camp Coach at the University of Louisville, Northern Kentucky University Student Athlete Academic Award, and College Sports Official/Referee for the Northern Kentucky University Intramurals Men & Women’s Basketball.

#StudioFlow

20121129-110240.jpg

It’s a flow that never stops.

It has no set time of start or end. There is no such thing as a 9 to 5 on this concept, this vibe, this zone.

Music people know it, from producers, songwriters, artists to major labels, independent labels, A&Rs, rappers and engineers, why??? Because it’s what we do. It’s what we eat, sleep and drink 25-8, (shout out to MJB for putting us on game with that Single!)

We make our own hours, hours that aren’t known to the average person. It’s about that grind, the desire to dish out, to produce a GREAT product every time those hands are placed on the mixing board, on that beat making program, exporting or importing vocals in waves, recording on the mic, the list goes on.

#StudioFlow is the business. It’s like having that juice, that constant vibe everyday all the time and you can’t get rid of it.

It’s a craving. It’s definitely a turn on for me because it is what I love to do. When all seems to fail, you just want to show it on tha mic, put it on that bangin stellar track and make beautiful hit songs for all the world to hear.

It’s one of the hottest places on the planet. I can trap myself in a studio for hours, for days and create out the wazoo and not get tired. I’m telling you it’s a beautiful thing.

As a songwriter it’s a must that I always be in and have that flow. Writing for other artists both male and female, it is a must. I bring it everytime, my A+ game. You always have to prove yourself.

#StudioFlow circulates around the whole music industry. There’s no such thing as being in the music industry and Not having this flow.

It’s a sacrifice day in and day out. Some newbies may not know about it just yet or to its fullest because they are just gettin their feet wet.

I felt it was time to clarify what #StudioFlow really is. It’s the real thing, the real deal and it does exist for a reason. the best of the best of the best use this terminology and its good for one to know it.

Imma even get more creative with it and call it, #StudioJuice. That’s gonna be the next hottest movie on BET. Just watch.

If you got that #StudioFlow, salute, like and talk it up on my blog. It is a lifestyle.

Again, I’m LeXXah Drew, a songwriter, vocal producer and vocal arranger with the Alexis Wilson Song Factory LLC. If you are interested in networking with my team and I, CONTACT us at 678.744.5396. We write songs to place and we write songs for hire. We will also want to check out what you do if you are interested in working with us, so please keep that in mind.

U Gotta Get Lucky!!!!

I hate to say this, because I don’t really believe in luck.

Luck has never really been on my side.

But unfortunately, fortunately, u gotta get lucky when it comes to this music scene, meaning making it into the music industry. Its a combination of being in the right place at the right time saying and displaying the right things and hitting it on the knob.

Its hard to guess what A&R’s and managers and reputable producers and anyone else along those lines are thinking. Its almost like a mind game or something.

Then, you have to be yourself throughout it all. Not being yourself is all bad. I guess it has to be a natural gift or something. Its just crazy how it all works.

Its one of those things where, you have to depend on a coin being thrown up in the air and you’re praying that it lands on heads rather then tails. Lol.

And all the while, you have to continue to develop and master your craft to adjust to the trends, to always stay fresh on your sound, create a new sound and market what you do. Man, its a grind. A serious grind and the crazy thing is, is once you get in, it doesn’t mean anything. Its almost like you have to start all over and you have to be way better then what you were before.

“You’re Only As Good As Your Last Hit!”

4 real. It is true. This thing is about making money and nothin’ but. You are only considered, “Fam-” if you are making somebody else’s pockets fat. That’s what, “Fam-” is. Its all about that bread.

But, you definitely gotta get lucky. There is so much money out here to be made, but it is only available to a certain group of people. Until that door is unlocked, little, if not nothing is going to happen.

But I will say this, God is able. God is greater than luck. His Blessing are greater then luck and that’s what I focus on the most. What God has for you it is for you, no if ands or butts about it. I think that is my best advice for anyone. God will work on your behalf. Sometimes, if not all times, it is not up to us, to say what we want to do or desire to do.

But continue to do your thing. Believe in yourself and put actions behind it. Its too easy just to give up. Too easy. Fight for what you believe in.
