After interviewing Russell Gunn on When We Speak, I realized that  he has so much knowledge about the music industry that I couldn't edit his interview down to only 15 minutes so here is a snippet from our interview that didn't make it to the interview but was very essential information.

See the full interview with Russell Gunn below:

#NewMusic: "Make A Way" by Carmen Rodgers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ag4gxhTUOLo
"Make A Way" is the first single from Carmen Rodgers' highly anticipated upcoming release "Stargazer." Carmen and her co-writer Claudia Melton partnered with Grammy-Award winning Super Producer S-1 (who brought us Kanye West's "Power," songs from "Yeezus" & "Watch the Throne" and Beyonce's "Best Thing I Never Had") & Caleb of SKP Productions, to bring you this mid-tempo, synth-laden jam. "Make A Way" is sure to be a new fan favorite with its infectious groove and thoughtful, clever lyrics...and is certain to "make a way" to many hearts.

Inspired by Janelle Monae (Jermaine Sain as Alpha NIASJ 5.0)

https://www.facebook.com/pages/When-We-Speak-TV/194748533955160?id=194748533955160&sk=photos_stream#!/photo.php?fbid=457347984361879&set=pb.194748533955160.-2207520000.1383319788.&type=3&theater
One day I was in Target and I ran into a friend that I haven't seen in about 4 years.
When I ran into him I remember thinking to myself, he really looks good....Not saying that he didn't before but that he looks really in shape and stuff. Strangely I started to feel insecure because the last time I saw him, I was about 30lbs lighter and much more in shape. Ya'll I couldn't believe that running into a friend would make me feel inadequate...so I had to talk to some of my friends to bring me back around. In the process of talking to one of them on the phone, I looked down at my Electric Lady cd by Janelle Monae and thought.... "Janelle is so freaking pretty"!

Then it came to me! I decided to do a photoshoot as a robot! Which actually turned out to be very therapeutic for me! I present to you Jermaine Sain aka Alpha NIASJ 5.0 inspired by Janelle Monae!

Russell Gunn on Trumpet



What can I say about Russell Gunn?  Hmm..  I was pleased to have the opportunity to speak with him on When We Speak.   I was slightly familiar with his artistry because I’ve seen him perform with Julie Dexter a few times and I was aware that he also did an album with Dionne Farris.  However, I never knew that I would grow to admire him so much….to me he’s a legend in his own right!

And of course, when speaking to a legend, everything that comes out of their month is full of wisdom.  That’s why it took me over two months to edit his interview.  Mainly because I was trying to debate what …good stuff was I going to remove!  So what I decided was to break the interview up into sections….so stay tuned for more video snippet from my interview with Russell Gunn.
So please check out our interview with Russell Gunn!  And purchase his music!
