    3 Comments

    - As seen in the April/June 2012 issue of The INDIEgator, Page 67. - Article Shortlink: The INDIEgator: What is one of the things you think some of the New Upcoming Artists’ biggest mistakes are? Prince Stamina: The biggest mistake artists can make right now is to be too focused on the money, because if you’re too focused on the money then you’re letting your craft slip away. You’re not focused on what you’re doing in the music industry. If the music deteriorates you’re not going to make any money regardless. You may have a side hustle but we’re talking about the music right now. You may go on stage and rock 15,000 people but if everybody’s standing there not doing anything and not feeling your music, you’re not selling any units at the end of the day and therefore you won’t make money. So stop being focused on that (money); start being focused on getting your craft up, stop making this B.S. music. I’m serious. Music is getting worse and worse right now.

  • On The Shelf: Playin’ In The Streets and The Virgin Memoirs
    No Comment

    - As seen in the April/June 2012 issue of The INDIEgator, Page 23. - Article Short Link Review by Kitty Y Williams Above are two books that I’ve had the pleasure to read recently. Demetrias D. Charles and Miah Gamati grew up on the rough side of the streets in big cities thousands of miles apart from each other. A common theme they share is suffering abuse and the absence of love early on, followed by getting caught up in “the life” as they attempted to fend for themselves in a cold world at young ages. Both Playin’ In The Streets and The Virgin Memoirs share deeply personal details in a chronicled approach, about the journeys of these two souls through all of their tribulations and learning experiences. As cliché as it may sound, I laughed a bit and admit I even got a little teary eyed at some parts as I found myself able to identify with and relate to some of the harsh life lesson’s they’ve learned. In reading these, I was also reminded never to judge anyone

I don’t have any kids but my company and my artists are like my family. I treat my artists like humans, not a product, so one of the fans said it one day after a show. She said

He’s since been on my program on  Kitty Williams LIVE at least three different times (June 29th 2009 │ Feb 22nd 2009 │ Feb 12th 2011) and is coming to Houston, TX on April 20th to be featured on my TV program The Kitty Williams Show. I am so excited because if you’ve ever seen or heard him perform, it will just blow you away. We decided he is a perfect Artist to feature in our new magazine The INDIEgator because not only is Chill truly talented, but he’s a very good guy. The cherry on top is he promotes so hard. To date, He still has had the biggest audience my radio show has ever had. We love that here. Speaking of radio, in order to help you get to know Chill better if you haven’t had the chance to be

I came across her music on Myspace, back in the Myspace days… and was completely mesmerized by her skill. She does not need the help of Auto Tune to do what she does with her God given gift and I truly believe she is underrated. If you listen to the interview she did on Kitty Williams LIVE and check out some of her tracks we played, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. This woman needs to be on every radio station and invited to do collaborations with all the hottest Artists who are worthy of her vocal presence on their albums. I know, I know. Yes, I’m talking her up real good. But look up the live interview when you get the chance. For now we’ve

Williams I was so thrilled the day I got to finally meet and interview Prince Stamina last October (2011). I’d been a fan since the first time I heard his song “She Like My Profile” back on Myspace. The day before we met, I had driven to my hometown of Killeen, TX to visit family and tape some indie artist interviews for my TV show on Houston’s UTN at the time. Unfortunately the two interviews I had scheduled weren’t able to make it but I remembered that Prince Stamina happened to be in town that week and he agreed to stop by. Such a humble guy considering his busy schedule and especially my last minute request. He knocked, Lights, Camera Action and 15 minutes later we had what is still one of my most popular interviews on The Kitty Williams Show. We even filmed
