"Dear Night" poem by Jhantu Randall Dear dark merciful night, Please shroud in the protection of your vast cloak Shield me from those who preach false hope But Dear Night, Guide me through the valley of decision cursed with the pain of sight Through recent events, it’s taking more to see this reality as a gift

DEAR NIGHT JHANTU RANDALL

Reveling in the idea that fate itself can be hit or miss In search of the energy to continue on the path A path thats paved with the shattered dreams of every broken souls past Interviewing with a vampire that chases the easy things

POEM

POET POETRY

Freed from these restraints that once confined my very being No longer able to bear any sense of captivity But at times, still too timid to test that which is truly limiting

Night, your voice is haunting as it hangs subtly Its whispers are communicated through the rustling of leaves I hear the advice in depth drawn from vastness That spins tales of cosmic dances

All along, amplifying nature’s rhythmic beats Creating soundtracks to stories built on wicked deeds Deceptive practices, shady happenings Done by those who punish

Who themselves are guilty of being imprisoned by greed So for that I repent for the good of what lies ahead The Spirits of teachers block the trauma of places demons have fed

The walls that were built long ago are being exposed Had to walk with you in darkness to even sense light, or even know Dear Night, I give this picture using a poetic flow

"Breaking Perception" poem by Jhantu Randall

It’s raining, mother Earth waters the forest I say this alluding to the scenery put before us Take in every image in its purest essence BREAKING

Enjoy every breathing moment for its many blessings

PERCEPTION The populace has become wild and rowdy

JHANTURANDALL LYRICS

The environment reflected in the moods, staying cloudy

It’s as if daily there is too much pain

PERSPECTIVE

Suffering and “Sin”

PHILOS OPHY

Together we strive to survive

POEM

Staying on our regimen

POET POETRY

Playing like pawns in a game, forced to remain in position Ambition, sacrifice and sweat perpetually clouding a vision Looking at the gains while simultaneously tallying the loss’ At times, the journey thus far has been quite costly Witnessing an unfolding of rather grim times The most dangerous weapon is a pure heart combined with a calm mind The reasons for these things seem to always remain hidden Left with only crude responses that sounds incoherently written Always up for suspicion Ending this with a loving loneliness lost among the masses Finding a revolutionary beauty in the midst of the havoc Reconnecting with my soul as the world continues to turn Ready for anything as we witness modern day Rome increasingly burn

Lee Fields’ house. A home that was built with blood, sweat, and tears , and stands on the unshakable foundation of his god given talent. Lee has been singing for 50 plus y ears and is undeniably, y et amazingly, at the top of his game. Those who have paid attention know that Lee is par t of the class that is directly responsible for the revival of old school funk and soul. He has inspired man y of toda y’s younger ar tists who are doing their best to car r y the torch. As long as the road has been, and heavy as the crown ma y be, Fields is proving y et again that he’s “still got it”. His latest of fering is sure to be a warmly received instant classic.

A beautifully soulful work, indie/soul music at its best. From Up There is deliberately simple in it's composition and it's production. It is music in it's purest form, hypnotic rhythms, warm lilting keyboards, rich harmony layered choruses and Francis's voice weaving stories that take you in and out of light.

"What gave you the gumption?" Tanika Charles rhetoricall y asks during the introducto ry notes of her sophomore album appropriatel y titled The Gumption. While the apprehens ive lover at the receiving end of that inquis ition s hould feel slighted by the remark, it als o alludes to the assuredness Tanika has gained s ince the release of her Juno Awa rd and Polaris Mus ic Priz e-nominated debut Soul Run. The Gumption picks up where Soul Run left off, continuing her tradi tion of marrying classic s oul with modern production styles. Acros s a doz en s ongs spanning 38 minutes , Tanika addres s es moments of vulnerabili ty, vindication, uncertain love, forbidden fruit and the s tate of the world today. "It's a little more mature.

Songs of Love & Freedom is a piece of myself I shaped over many months and long hours, and tried to fashion honestly, making it beautiful — true beauty which can only come from Truth. The truth found in solitude; the truth that lifts you from comfort and into

something much more powerful – rebirth.
