• L.A. Music Producer Kenny Dubb Celebrates New Milestones

    by Kitty Y. Williams I want to tell you a story. Once upon a time in a small military town somewhere in the state of Kansas, there was a girl named Kitty. She had three rambunctious little brothers who were always messing up her room, ripping the heads off her beloved Barbie dolls, or stealing the spotlight from her during community Piano recitals hosted by their mother, the Teacher. Though Kitty was sometimes amused as her little brother Kenny would interrupt her while performing Classical Beethoven music for the audiences, just so he could show them that he knew how to play the theme song from the movie “Jaws”, she never imagined that one day he would turn that goofy passion into a serious career. After all, she was supposed to be the “Star”.... Over the past decade our roles have changed and I’ve spent a lot of time promoting hundreds of Musicians, Entertainers and Entrepreneurs through my different media projects. To be quite honest with you, none of it would have

  • An Intimate Interview with Karma

    By Kitty Y. Williams The first time I met the lovely Karma aka The Diva of Hip Hop Blues, I was sitting off to myself observing the scene at the 2012 RedZone Ultimate Music Fest and Awards put on by Fiyaworks Entertainment and friends. There to accept an award along with several other movers and shakers in the independent music scene here in Houston, I remember this very pretty slender lady in pink who came and sat next to me, striking up a conversation out of the blue. I can’t recall everything we discussed but remembered her having a very humble presence and beauty that stood out in the crowded room. Karma was performing that night and unfortunately I ended up missing it due to additional obligations that evening. Upon later discovering that she was the Headliner at Cole’s of Houston for a Valentine’s Day event the following year, my sweetheart and I made a point to go see her LIVE. It’s always refreshing to see a beautiful woman holding it down across multiple genres

    Article Short Link: http://TheINDIEgatorMag.com/?p=4236 Singer/Songwriter/Actress, Amanda Cole. Image © CSP Music Group. Amanda Cole Singer/Songwriter by Kitty Y. Williams One of the most Profoundly Powerful Voices I have ever come across on YouTube is that of Amanda Cole. Her “Pretty Hurts” (Beyonce) cover came onto my radar and immediately I found myself rushing to find more of her videos. Ms. Cole is certainly No Amateur. Her Professionalism is very evident while watching her work and hit every intended note with pure precision. Just as a side note, she was even a member of the R&B group En Vogue for a few years. This is a Gifted Queen right here. I await her Single Be That, the EP Fairytale and an interview with The INDIEgator. I too want to learn more about the journey of this Extraordinary Singer, Writer and Actress. Editor's YouTube Picks (April/June 2014)

Williams Whether Daniel “IceJJFish” McLoyd considers himself a serious Musician or a Comedian who enjoys playing with people’s perceptions of him, one thing is for sure. He knows how to grab attention and keep you coming back thirsty looking for more. He knows how to keep people talking about him and his Art. Yes, I said it. Art. It is truly an art form to go after your dream and capture a nation’s love, or even ridicule. While some viewers have said he sounds “...like a thousand angels melded into one voice!”, that and his dance moves have remained open for debate by many. Either way, he’s surrounded by sexy ladies, always. I remain confused yet intrigued. Now that is power! You can find him online under @IceJJfish on most social media websites.

    Facebook│YouTube│ Vevo│ Twitter│ Instagram - Article Short Link: http://theindiegatormag.com/?p=4152 In September of 2013 I was invited to a Jam Session at a TV studio in Houston that was featuring a Gospel Artist visiting from Dallas to film a few promos and interviews. My good friend and long time Business associate, Jay (JM & Associates), thought it would be a great idea for me to check this Artist out for a feature in The INDIEgator magazine. Shaun G, is originally from St. Louis but has been living in Texas for the latter years of his life.  Shaun was first introduced to music as a young boy in church and just loved the sound and rhythm especially of Gospel, R&B and Jazz due to their chord changes and the soul behind them. Even so, he still claims to love all styles of music simply because “every style is different and should be appreciated.” His first opportunity to get in on that action and perform himself was during a Christmas program at his home
