Hiiiii! =) Thank you for dropping by and reading my first blog on Word Press. I had one on MySpace but I thought I would try something separate from that place. lol Most of you that stumble across this page no little to nothing about me. Those of you that come to my page intentionally know that I am a singer. I also write and … I’m a closet poet. LOL Yeah…I said it and I’m proud of it. I do have countless pieces of poetry that is just sitting there but I am considering some to song. In fact, there’s one that I have into song now, but that’s another story. Sorry…I tend to digress and bounce around a bit. Back to a little info about me…
My stage name is jai Moi. (Note I always lowercase the ‘j’) It is pronounced >> j-Mwah…like a kiss….mmmmmmmmwwwhaaah! LOL! If you want to box me into a music genre, I am neo-soul. You may ask what is neo-soul for those that are unfamiliar with the genre or as my buddy M Dot always says does NOT exist – neo-soul is simply a sub-genre of R&B. It is usually what some consider conscious music that is soulful. Soul artists like Aretha Franklin paved the way for this genre to even exist. So … it’s “new” soul. I LOOVEE it! The sound…the words…the way it makes me feel. Mmm! One minute it makes me laugh…then think deeply…then cry…it makes me feel. It gives me the same feeling as gospel without the religious theme.
I’m working on my first CD. So I will be sharing all of the ups and downs … and trust me it’s like a freaking roller-coaster ride. If you are an indie artist, you can relate. But if I did not love music so much…if I didn’t love to sing so much…if I didn’t want to share what I have with the rest of the world soooo much, I’d probably say to hell with it all. LOL Because it takes a lot of energy, time and resources. But I do love it…that’s why I am here and writing this blog.
So this is my formal introduction from me to you. It is very nice to meet my new friends. I hope you become a fan. And if you are friend and fan already, thank you for stopping by and joining me at my new spot.
peace and blessings…see ya soon!
