Producer, Paris Toon

Paris Toon1

Paris Toon-Song Writer, Composer, Producer bringing you quality classic sounds as he melts the melodies and words that he hears in his head with the talents of an amazing band Mother’s Favorite Child along with a variety of other talents.

I had the pleasure of connecting with Paris Toon over a year ago through a colleague of mine, Hasan Brown of Puzzle Marketing and Media. From there Paris was a featured guest on The Leopard Carpet with me on Flava News Radio. I would encourage you to take a listen to this show to hear his story and learn about the group Mother’s Favorite Child and where they were at that time and then stick with me as I try to keep you up on what is going on today with Paris Toon going into the future.

Since Paris Toon came on Flava News Radio he has kept me current with all the new music coming from his studios from not only Mother’s Favorite Child but for a variety of other talents in the Arizona area where he is located. Yes, I have been blessed to be the first to break some of the new sounds coming out of the Paris Toon Camp.

In the beginning I fell in love with the sound. I immediately heard the quality but in the end, I felt the stories and swayed to the rhythm and rhyme of the musicians. This was one of those realization for me in knowing I was meant to do what I do, that this did not come together by accident but with a purpose. Paris Toon is no joke and the artists and musicians that he works with are top notch.

Yes, this is a business for Paris Toon but from what I gather and from watching from a distance, there is a true connection with the artist he is directly working  with or reaches out to, to put a voice and sound to his creations.

When I think about who made those classics back in the day that I can still sing today. I reflect on who is doing the same thing today, creating those classics that will be heard and remembered 10 years and beyond…Paris is doing that in my opinion. The lyrics, the music, the stories, allowing life to make sense to calling to your body and feeling the groove as the sway comes without notice.

A year + more…I have a different relationship with Paris Toon and am working towards building a strong connection and working on future projects between the Pacific Northwest, Arizona and beyond with Paris Toon.

The Listenership Is Growing From Locations to Numbers

Flava News Radio

Flava News took to the air in November of 2009. At that time we did not know where it would go and never dreamed that it would become one of the biggest features that is provided by Flava News. Three and a half years later the listenership has grown over 10 X what it was in the beginning and the countries that are following has expanded to around the globe.

To date these are the TOP 10 Locations:

1. United States
2. United Kingdom
3. United Arab Emirates
4. Canada
5. France
6. India
7. Mongolia
8. Malaysia
9. Australia
10. Indonesia

I do a variety of shows from Flava Coffee House Online Radio Style to On The Leopard Carpet and New Music Leaks along with variety of other shows. All the shows are centered around supporting underground/independent artists. Although because we are talking radio, you may think that I just support musical talents, that is not true. I started in this industry as a small business owner that supported local and national artists and honestly was birth as a book reviewer of African American Literature. I encourage All Artists of All Art Forms to take advantage of Flava News and Flava News Radio but to honest the music talents are the most hungry to be heard.

My challenge in what I do it to find a balance in what I call a Win Win Relationship where we all share and show support to each other because in that would provide growth and opportunity when the power of numbers support. To this day, the fight continues to get artists and fans to understand this concept. Could I be too far off in my expectations of what is needed for the unknowns, I really don’t think so. I just think that artists are so focused on their own hustle that they fail to recognize the concept if you give support you will gain support. Plus with the fans, I am so not sure why there seems to be a block to share the news about an artist that they claim to believe and then also take a few dollars to support their projects or product.

I still fight as a one person show to spread the word and educate people on what my thoughts are in growing a true following.

Not all artists have a talent that should be put in the spot light and others just need work on their production and sometimes even personality…but I will leave this subject to a feature blog…

There is power in internet radio…this is the platform for the unknown artists because the bottomline is you are not going to be heard on mainstream radio unless you got through the right channels of numbers and money..so you best start building relationships with internet radio stations and host if you have a quality product to you want heard. Also, do your research and don’t waste your time with reaching out to a station or host that most likely will never play your sound. Be smart with your time and know who to target.

I do what I do because I believe that radio is one of the top tools for an artist to be heard around the world. I have learned that you never know who is listening and may reach out from just one radio show. It has happen numerous times to me and those people are some of my best advocates in what I do and in the growth of Flava News.

Pay attention…The world is listening to Flava News Radio!
