Fertile Ground's James Collins Talks to SoulTrain.com

Anyone in the DC/VA/MD area can tell you that one of the most popular bands to come out of the area is the phenomenal group known as Fertile Ground. For the past three years, we haven't heard much from the super group although we've seen its members performing as soloists or members of other groups for some time. Thankfully, James Collins, founder of Fertile Ground and a talented musician and producer in his own right updates us on what's going on the group and let's us know when we should be hearing from the group in the near future.

Liberated Muse Community Poem #5

Sun Salute

Her limbs, like branches stretched high in sun salutation, extend upwards

eyes closed, warm beams raining down, forming a blanket of warmth

Beautiful, spontaneous, fresh and alive

Her time has come

She has arrived

In this moment and for all time

She is completely free

Mulch of the world's sorrows

Fed, sustained then released her

To unfurl, straighten

Erect and proud

She is completely free


The LiberatedMuse.com community poem is a frequent activity where members of the network lend verses to create an original poem. Liberated Muse creator Khadijah "Moon" Ali-Coleman, Jimmy DiLorenzo and Sandy Hoar contributed to this poem, titled, "Sun Salute".

Liberated Muse member Gary Young is searching for vocalists to collaborate with on a new electronica project he is working on, a fusion of rock, dance and soul music.

Message him on Liberated Muse HERE if you would like more details about the project and if you would like to participate. If you are not located in the Washington DC metro area, don't fret. He is open to swapping .wav files with you if applicable.


All month is Women's History Month, and Liberated Muse will celebrate in grand style, not just celebrating Women's History Month, but SWAN Day as well.
SWAN Day/Support Women Artists Now Day is a new international holiday that celebrates women artists. It is an annual event taking place on the last Saturday of March (Women’s History Month) and the surrounding weeks. By focusing attention on the work of women artists, SWAN Dayhelps people imagine what the world might be like if women’s art and perspectives were fully integrated into all of our lives.
People celebrate this new holiday by participating in SWAN Day events and by making donations to their favorite women artists. The long term goal of SWAN Day is to inspire communities around the world to find new ways to recognize and support women artists as a basic element of civic planning.

We are celebrating SWAN Day on Friday, March 30 during a music concert featuring some of DC's most talented progressive artists who are longtime members of the Liberated Muse network. Come out and bring your friends and family for this music celebration. Dinner and dessert sold.
