So glad to finally release this interview into the universe. Interviewing Kane Mayfield had to be one of the best experiences of this process thus far. We had a great time interviewing him. He’s talented, hilarious, thoughtful and engaging! He is definitely an emcee to watch, check, and listen for. What we said about his live show is so true…it will send you into a mania! He has a tremendous amount of positive energy that makes you feel hype. In our conversation, he had this to say about his music, “I make what I want to listen to…I make music that sounds good with fatigue pants.” You have to love that he has a whole picture in mind not just the feeling of the music but what you would wear listening to it. He is a storyteller and has joints that remind you of Slick Rick’s “A Children Story” like “The Island 94”. He also has the songs that make you feel tough and like mean mugging everyone in sight, listen to “Wreck”. He has songs that you want to sing when you feel like people are doubting you, “Poor Georgie”. His latest project is called “Follow My Flow”. You can listen to it by clicking the link at the bottom of this post. On a http://www.sermonsdomain.com he explained the rationale behind each track. Definitely check it out!

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.
Listen to “A Day in the Life”

Sean Toure Final 1 by goodmusicgoodpeople
She speaks about pursuing your passion. Her advice is simple, start with waking up. We talk about the “16 shining light beams”. She says the story of Christ is repeated throughout time. Why? She talks about the complexity of sexuality and how there is more to us than just being gay or straight. We exist in a spectrum. She does what every good writer should, leaves you thinking about her words long after you’ve heard them. She also creates sonically beautiful poetry that you will sing/speak with as loud as any song. She’s written a book, Black Marks on White Paper. She’s working on a new project, Gemini Moon. She’s released the first single from the project called “Like Gold”. She’s running a kickstarter campaign to make this project a reality.
