Cookies on Monday: The Mosno Interview

Mosno Al-Moseeki–what can we say about this musician, songwriter, poet, and all around good guy with a great voice and interesting sound? He calls his music Eclectic Desert Rock because he blends alternative rock and Sudanese rhythms. He has released two albums–low tech and The Ungenre– and is currently working on his third–Novella, which at the time of this interview was just a concept.
His voice has a beautifully haunting quality that takes you on a journey through love, sadness, heartbreak, anger, joy and passion. He touches all of the traditional topics you want and expect from a talented singer-songwriter but with unusual metaphors. Cookies on Monday is the symbol he shared with a past love, referring to a ritual they shared, or “the black iron eagle in my closet staring at me…” from Guilt and Empathy that represents the feeling and transferal of bad emotions and anger from a “friend”. Through his music he opens up the window for you to see his view of the world and leaves you with a lot to ponder. Mosno Al-Moseeki–Most Noble, the Musical,–he is well named.

Sean Toure Thames, The Sound Channeler Interview

What can we say about Sean Toure? Dope emcee? Check! Dope producer? Check! Dope musician? Check! All around good guy? Check! Sean Toure talks with us about what it is like to understand the music business and what it takes for an indie artist to grow in the industry. Making great music has to be first and he focused on developing his craft, telling us that “being an emcee and being a producer I’ve been focused on developing my craft.” We learn the story behind the title “The Sound Channeler” which is very interesting. The album is incredible and the beats seem heaven sent. His new album is sure to be a classic. Our favorites are “The Om-Aveneerer”, “A Day in the Life”, “My Turn”, “Lie in Bed” and “Hoodlife”. Sean Toure has every reason to feel proud that “all of my experiences have led me to where I am today.” Look for The Remix Project which is in the process of being re-released and the new LP The Sound Channeler.

The Truly Amazing Ama Chandra Interview

What can we say about this wonderful, brilliant songstress? Music seems to permeate from her essence. She showed up at the interview vivid and alive recounting to us the details of a melody that came to her while she was driving. She is a healer–a registered nurse and a natural healer. She indeed has healing in her voice. She is fierce, strong and an expert in Capoeira. Seriously, she isn’t to be played with. A whole woman. Her soon to be released album is called “Destiny”. When you hear it, you’ll wonder how she combined jazz, soul, bossa nova, traditional capoeira songs and samba in that perfect way. You will want to take the trip with her. It was predestined.
