2014 is off to an AMAZING START. On the top of my list of things to celebrate is the birth of my beautiful and healthy baby girl, Greer Lilliana Garrett. Family is my core motivation, and I thank God for adding another angel to my life.
I’ve been hard at work writing new music; and the momentum is great and the creative energy is on a high. The new single for Joe, “Love & Sex Pt. 2 feat Kelly Rowland” is climbing the charts quickly after only three weeks. The video is receiving rave reviews and its available on iTunes for purchase. This is the first single from Joe’s upcoming album entitled, “Bridges”. I had the distinct pleasure of working extensively on the entire album, and it is a masterpiece. So be on the lookout for that.
Also, be on notice for the new single from the Legendary, Bar-Kays entitled “UP AND DOWN.” This song features my good friend and extremely talented artist, Latrese Bush. The Bar-Kays are known for hits such as “Grown Folks” “Holy Ghost” and “Freak Show On The Dance Floor.” This song was co-written and produced with my long-time production partners, Tag Team Entertainment Gerald Langford and Dave ‘dtune’ Langford. This is just the first of some amazing new music we are cooking up for 2014.
In addition to preparing music for Joe’s new album, the Bar-Kays, and other well known artists, I continue to work with striving independent artists such as Homer Logan, Bernard Buggs Jr, Taylor Semone, Qca Xsklusive Xu, Latrese Bush, Danny Clay, and more! I always want to be able to contribute to the aspirations of artists and musicians that share the same dream of success in the music business.
In addition to staying busy in the studio, I’ve been hard at work with my band, Just A Few Cats and Logan The Entertainer. We’ve been making noise in places such as Meridian, Columbus, and West Point, MS, Tuskegee and Tuscaloosa, AL and of course Birmingham. We have found a renewed energy and we are on call to book weddings, corporate events and more. So hit us up.
What’s next? I’m getting ready to pack my bass guitar and hit the road with my good friend, Ruben Studdard on tour with Lalah Hathaway in April. Also, I will be making a stop in Atlanta, GA in April to perform music from my album, Expose Yourself (more info to come). I’m also making plans to present more shows featuring the amazing music from my album.
Whew. Ok. Thats the AG-Update for the first quarter of 2014. I have every belief that this will be my finest year yet! Thanks to all those that continue to support my aspirations with your prayers, patronage, and positivity. God Bless.
