A few people have been asking me what music I’ve been working on lately. Right now I’m currently working on an original song collection for my thesis. In the past few weeks I’ve gained so much knowledge. I’m learning things about songwriting that I never knew, like there being several forms of songwriting. You see I’ve always written songs from my heart. I made them a certain way because its how I wanted to release my emotions through music; they sounded good to my ear. Like I told you guys before I’ve never learned music theory until I came to UT Dallas. Even now its hard to grasp entirely, but I’ve realized the more I’m around it the better I get. What I’m trying to say is that this thesis has turned out to be harder than what I expected, but in a good way. I like the fact that…

New Blog. New Journeys. New Year.

Hey guys!

Been a while since I posted here. I’ve been busy for the past year. This semester I’m happy to say I’ll hopefully be graduating with a BA in Arts and Performance at UT Dallas. I’m starting a new WordPress blog called @YourMusicDiet for an independent study. It’d be awesome if you guys can check out the link below and follow my blog. It’s a new media thing I’m going to be experiencing throughout the semester and beyond.

The Run-Down.

First Feature!

Hey guys!

Queen n Ivy here! It’s been awhile since I posted so I wanted to update you guys what I’ve been working on. This past May I helped a film major, Silvia Luicia, with a film for her senior thesis project. I wrote and recorded some poetry so she could put into her film and she ended up getting the best documentary award in her class (still amazed!). Once its shared online I’ll be able to share it with you all. I’ve been on this FL Studio demo and I’m getting the hang of how to use it. So far the beats I’ve produced are RIDICULOUS.

Now for the main dish (drum roll) … I received my first feature opportunity a couple weeks ago with JYZE called “Goin’ Down”. I’ll definitely post a link when its released. Thank you all for the love as I grow on this unbelievable journey! It is not over yet!

Much love xoxo ;)
