Liberated Muse Featured on NPR
If you missed Friday's NPR interview about LiberatedMuse.com on the show Metro Connection, visit the website HERE or listen below. Special shout-out to Liberated Muse member Colie Williams who participated in the interview. In the interview, rap artist Kokayi is mentioned and a snippet of his music is played. He participated in the 2010 Capital Hip Hop Soul Fest and inspired Maceo Thomas to want to partner to put on the festival after seeing Kokayi in concert and realizing that there was such rich talent in the Nation's Capital.
In the extended interview below (all was not aired due to time restraints), Liberated Muse member, singer Quineice is featured singing an excerpt from the song "I Wanna Be You" from the play Running: AMOK.
Special thanks to reporter Jessica Palombo for her interest in covering us. She was on assignment here in the Washington DC area and I am most appreciative of her interest in my story and the story of LiberatedMuse.com.
Being Part of Liberated Muse
If you are already a member or considering becoming a member, my hope is that you join the site and use it to promote yourself as an artist and meet other like-minded people. Hundreds of people have met one another on the site or at our events, with dozens of artistic collaborations coming out of their meetings. I update members through email blasts on opportunities with Liberated Muse and throughout the DC area. In 2012, I will be transforming Liberated Muse into a 501 (c) nonprofit organization and currently seeking Board Members. You can learn more about us HERE.
