Peace & love family

Within each step we take we continue to thank you all for your support. Since the launch of RUACH a few weeks ago things have really amped up on my corner!,  Hence I have not had as much time as I wanted to post blogs, There is much I have to say, But I will deliver these messages in due course.

I have been boots on ground in these Brexit streets distributing Ruach, I aim to get the new album in to as many independent stores as I can by the end of the year, Nationally and internationally. We are rocking hard & the reaction of the people when they hear this “anonymous  music” via DJ’s playing in clubs has been breath taking to me!.  But  I am also learning a few things along this long independent journey…

Yes the rumors are true!, There are some dogs out there dressed in expensive suits, just waiting to bite you in this industry. I will not mention any names but there have been certain record labels that have approached me on my journey, & various false individuals who have wanted to “represent” me, But guess what?  Due to experience we are privy to anyone’s dirty game. So I pose this question, Why is honesty a hard thing to ask for in any industry?.

In one of my songs I say “why is everyone competing while we have already won the race”, There are too many people in life who will try to sell you a model that does not work merely to try and keep up with another individual or organization. We must try to find something that works for ourselves before we share it or test it on someone else, This is one of the reasons I chose to blog online, so that I can simply disseminate certain principals of life that have worked for me.

So again we thank you all for your emails  & support. independent musicians need this!

We are organizing a music video of which we will keep you all updated on.

As you should all know, the raw Ruach documentary is out on YouTube of which I will post a link on a separate blog.

Meantime if you want to get the new music, please follow these links bellow

Ruach News: Take heart! 29/07/16

IMAG0348

Love & Unity people, I hope we have all had a positive & progressive week, This has been one of those inspiring yet heavy weeks for me personally, I recently learned that my great family friend, brother Julius Mutunga passed away this week. This came too sudden for the family, As this guy was a sent angel to us, This is one of those people of whom very few if not none could walk in his shoes. One strong individual!, Just like my father was, whom also has transcended. I remember me & Julius always talked about recording an album together, But the opportunity never came to pass. So I suppose we will Jam Again, But in another realm of existence, the higher entities. We love Julius, Rest in Power brother!, (on the picture Julius is on the electric guitar, & that’s Lil Vonj smiling on the bass)

My experiences in life have been extreme, especially for someone still in his 20s, we have witnessed & experienced the very WORST & the very BEST of the things in life, But this means nothing If one is not learning from experience, & through this  we come to understand our purpose in life, There are reasons why we are exposed to certain experiences. For me I realize that In actual fact I am in a privileged state, Because now I am able to share my experiences to others, providing comfort, motivation,  &  elevation to the people who are going through certain situations.

I try to use music as my MAIN vehicle to disseminate resolutions to people, I always have, & I will always will.

So with Spirit we remain working against the grain 24/7 Literally, because we also note down our dreams, “one of the greatest key parts in our life experience”.

Take heart people!.

The album Ruach is out on 261 stores online, You can’t miss it!.
I-Tunes being the most popular choice for downloads, Here is a special link to the 3 singles we released.
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/ruach-single/id1138394081

We really thank you all for your support. Keep spreading the word.

Love & Unity from the RUACH family.

Vonj, Carmine, Martin, Mat, Garry.

Have a great weekend family.

Peace & Ruach People!

Y’all alright today?? y’all staying strong??, because remember…no matter what situation you are in?, good or bad?, there is only one thing that you can always aspire towards, RISING UP & Getting better within yourself & everything that you do!.

I’ve been in the midlands (England) doing session work for other folk, But nothing will compare to what is in store the day Ruach hits the stages!. I have always been about “LIVE” performance, & as much as we would like to build our reputation on “social media”, The real intention is to actually bring people OUT of the digital world & into the REAL world, No matter how sweet music may sound on a record/mp3, Nothing will ever compare to a live experience, This is why we should move towards appreciating musicians even more while they yet live, Because no matter how you may dig tunes like “So What”, No matter how you may dig “Purple rain”, That real & actual experience is gone with those artists forever!, & there are NO high end speakers, amplifiers, Full HD 3D, virtual reality, holographic systems that will ever come close to replicating the feeling received from an original live experience.

So “we want to bring you OUT!”, But first we are working towards setting the “right conditions”,  We look forward to inviting you to the party!

Meantime I have been doing research on what mainstream online store serves most convenient and offers a decent deal for both the artist & the consumer, Currently I recommend downloading Ruach through “Google play” our link is as follows..

https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Vonj_Ruach?id=B4ecfotssvzk4bn2s7535tasksq

Look out Next Wednesday the 27th!, for some RAW footage that will quickly take you through the journey in the studio (the cave) creating the Ruach album project, included will be sneak bites of the songs included on the album & also the tracks that were not included.

So Remember to spread the word & subscribe to the websites that we have 100% control over..

We love & appreciate your support people, never forget this.

2016 – The heat is yet to come

vonj mod

Peace & Blessings people, Just a brief taster on the previous happenings of 2016. I’ve been off the blogs for a while now, harnessing & directing most of my time towards my creative works, I have been moving around the U.K. doing sessions for other artists/bands raising funds for the distribution & promotion of my projects. Musically we are about to bring you one of the hardest hitting independent albums in 2016…., & hopefully the biggest shows out of this in the near future.

The story is long as to how I have got to this point, But through these risky roads of life I have always kept my faith & smile strong in the everlasting journey of learning.

The new album is out on Renaissance day remember?, 07/07/16. You dig? Peace & blessings family.

Dignified Friday presents – Friend

Peace & blessings people,

Today I am presenting the song titled “Friend” off the “Integration” album, this album was recorded a couple of years ago, I seen a lot of separation in the world,  I chose to record an album where each track was to represent unification and integration, an integration of different tones & sounds, integration of  knowledge, an integration of family and friendship.

on the news front, another website will be constructed, the new platform will be used to launch the projects I have been working on in 2015

Album,

Books,

Documentary,

my new Building “The creative sanctuary”.
