Coming to you by way of Helsinki is the electro- indie pop band Feels. I must say it’s pretty great to be able to do a write up on such an eclectic group. The band consists of members Sofi (songwriter), Mikael (keyboardist) and Jooel (producer). They describe their sound as being”epic, gripping and toned with northern melancholy.” After listening I too must agree, it captivates and causes the listener to focus intently on the music.
Feels has recently released their latest single If You’d Meet Me Tonight and its available on Itunes and all other digital stores as is their previous single Weightless. Both songs gives us a peak into Feels’ potential to be a hot ticket on the indie scene. With the response in Finlad vastly rising and the promise of new music in February, Feels is on to a great start.
To connect with Feels you can find them on Facebook , Soundcloud , Bandcamp and their Official Website .

Growing up in a military family Enygma was exposed to the world and different cultures fairly early in her life. With the support of her parents and doing some of her schooling in a home environment Enygma was able to refine her creativity through music, writing, painting, etc. Additional education led her to learn instruments and have vocal coaching , which has proved to be very beneficial for the very talented songstress.
The road for Enygma hasn’t always been so smooth though as with most of us who have a dream, there are highs and lows. She had been offered a deal at the age of 17 but felt like it just wasn’t the right time. However, with the wisdom of saying no and her recent trip to Mexico she was enlightened and came back with a new perspective and ready to give what she loves another try. Most recently she has released her single Bent and is set to release Eargasm( the Mixtape) Feb. 2.
To connect with Ms. Enygma you can follow her on Instagram and also check her out on Soundcloud. In the meantime click the link and vibe with Bent by Enygma.

Sitting here doing some writing and track after track pulls me in, entrancing me with every word and every melody. Then it hit me somewhere between Musiq Soulchild’s Ms. Philadelphia and Alina Baraz’s Can I that maybe I should share some of the songs that I’m vibing to right now. I’m a lover of music so my taste is pretty eclectic.
I want to know who’s in heavy rotation on your playlist. I’m open to hear some new artist. I hope the rest of your night goes well and I wish you all sweet dreams!! Till tomorrow ✌&❤

We all have a purpose and we all have a dream. Who of us can deminish or belittle someone if their dream doesn’t line up with ours? Who are we to look down or turn our nose up at our peer if they don’t have the same beliefs as we do? Martin Luther King Jr. fought for equality not just with blacks and whites but as a nation. Black on black crimes and how we as an African American race need to have love and respect for each other as well. So as we reflect this day on one of the nations most publicized and fearless African American leaders let us also remember the unsung heroes that also paved the way i.e. Claudette Colvin, Dorothy Height, Bayard Rustin, Hosea Williams, and Gloria Richardson. They’re sacrifices and fight for equality helped us all in some way shape or form, its us to continue keeping the fight alive!! That starts with looking out for each other, banding together and not treating our fellow African Americans as the enemy, for we have more power then we can imagine. I’ve compiled a playlist to commemorate this day.
