i remember scrolling through my youtube subscriptions via (computer) a few months back and finding my interest level at an all time low. i took to my cell phone because it gives me a bit more information such as what videos the people i subscribe to have rated or commented on…etc. and this one talented artist i’ve been watching for some time now (i’ll have a blog about him a little later) jayaleander95 rated a video by an artist who called herself ETERNITY. the thumbnail for the video looked very interesting - i seen a young girl bent down posing in the middle of a moving escalator with some hooker tights and a black corset on - needless to say it spiked my interest so i tuned in. i was immediately intrigued by her creativity. her image was obviously pieced together by her own endless mind…in the first minute i seen an artist with extreme potential - an artist who believed in herself - an artist that was fearless - an artist that believed in her music - an artist that could careless if you pointed fingers - an artist that was hungry. as i continued to watch this video “Hella High” i wanted to know more - i wanted to know where she was from, how long she had been at it, what her goals were, and who she was working with…so, i began watching her other videos. i noticed the negative feedback (which most incredible artist receive in the beginning) and i also noticed the positive feedback. after watching every video on her channel i immediately began to comment - i searched her on fb - and i found her on instagram — i wanted to talk to this girl…as an artist myself i had to get my hands on her - i wanted to collaborate. Eternity wears wigs, sings, raps, dresses up, she’s repeatable, and most of all she is talented. i began getting images of a young lady gaga in my head - i seen her as a similar artist and having a similar career….i’m speaking in potential here, not an exact career path. i see her eventually stepping in and changing the music industry one day - i see her changing peoples minds - i see her making people like her - i see her going mainstream - and i see her doing nothing less than committing to her craft…..and that is artistry. Eternity is an amazing artist on the rise and her funky style - funky music - and incredible vision will pull you in. please check her out — she is def. an artist to keep your eye on….i believe in this chick — i know she can and will do great things.
ETERNITY’S information is below — subscribe TODAYYY!
-ps ETERNITY and I are currently working on a pretty dope record coming in 2014 — so look out for that. (note to self)

angelic whispers on delay may not be your first choice of music while getting ready for saturday night - but - Grimes gives a whole new meaning to music. born and raised in canada, grimes now finds herself booked all over the world as she turns out each and every stadium. she is her own engine …building each and every song from complete silence to pop/electronic hit with no one but herself. i admire her dedication and enjoy watching her nervously get through an interview — you can tell fame and money was the last thing on this talented artists’ mind when she began creating music….which is why i love her. as an artist i know what it feels like to just want to capture a crowds attention, take them away with your music, and dip…as if you were never there — and that’s exactly what she does. you can close your eyes and fly away through her built up music and forget about all of the stress here on Earth. if you appreciate good music - humble artistry - and a carefree mindset you should definitely check out GRIMES…..her music is 10 steps above amazing.

a few days ago my “best friend” asked me about my style and how it was evolving. i can remember a few years back when i found myself wrapped up in the newest lines being released at the MAC counter or which pair of red bottom pumps i wanted to add to my wishlist. today i sit back and toss my converse chuck taylors on the coffee table and always make sure my face is washed 3-4 times a day. makeup has found it’s way out of my life - so have the heels. why? i often question it myself. i believe when we are young adults, you know, coming out of your teen years….you are constantly trying to make your mark in the world….you want to feel wanted…you want people to notice you…to admire you…to flock to you — as much as i hate to admit it i suppose i was always wanting people to question me. i think i wanted others to question me so i could find out who i was myself. overtime the attention i gained from strapping up my 8” platform pumps and powdering my face helped me become the raw faced - converse wearing - natural guy i am today. has my style evolved? yes! am i still that guy who wore heels and lashes? yes! i’ve always lived by the code: “clothes don’t make you - you make the clothes” so when people tell me “you’ve changed” i simply laugh and continue strutting my stuff — I HAVEN’T CHANGED BABY, I’VE JUST CHANGED MY OUTFIT.
