Introduction to Lady Flava of Lady Flava News & Flava’s Lounge

Lady Flava

Starting Fresh and decided to stop and introduce myself to those of you that don’t know me.

I go by the name of Lady Flava which was birthed at my coffee house, Flava Coffee House in North Seattle, WA. This is where my passion for supporting local creative soulz, which over time I came to support Artists across the United States. My brand was strong as a book reviewer of African American Literature while at Flava Coffee House and I sold many books from there. In 2008 I hosted a literary conference where authors, spoken word artists and fans of literature came from across the U.S. to gather and connect in person. In 2009 I stepped out and began life as a internet radio show host…playing Only Indie Original Music to Featuring on The Leopard Carpet a variety of creative soulz.

Fast forwarding to 2020, I find myself in Las Vegas, NV…having moved here in 2017 thinking I was moving here to live a dream in hosting my own Indie Artist Showcase in the Entertainment Capital of The World…I was in for a rude awakening…Original music is not embraced down here…people love the classics and cover songs that they are familiar with and can sing along to. I came to respect this form of entertainment, but at the same time became somewhat bored and longed to keep my dream alive, I never gave up even though I didn’t speak on it too much.

I feel into working, and working a lot…some of the reason was just for survival along with building a financial foundation to work from for Flava’s Lounge Vegas. I was overwhelmed with working, exhausted and with no desire or energy to do anything but work and sleep. The pandemic hit, and working in healthcare, I was guaranteed constant work and that is exactly what happened…I worked and I worked and I worked. My health was beginning to be effected not just my body but my mind and my spirit and I knew that I need to make a change because this lifestyle was not working for me and took a toll on me.

July 2020 right after I turned 60 years of age…I had to stop and doing something that allowed me to take care of myself, allowed me to have time off, and time to get back to the reason I moved to Vegas…supporting creative soulz. God blessed me a job, working at the same hospital where I have been working the past 3 years, but now as a hospital staff and no longer an outside contracted employee. I work a regular 9-5 with weekends off and great benefits. Hallelujah, I am back to being Lady Flava and daring to work towards rebranding or should I say, re-introducing myself to the online arts and entertainment industry.

September 1, 2020…I committed to coming back to do my internet radio shows…Every Tuesday & Thursday Flava’s Groove Listening Party and Morning Coffee with Flava Every Saturday morning. It feels so good to get back to my purpose and passion.

So, Let me Introduce Myself, I am Lady Flava of Lady Flava News and Flava’s Lounge Radio…Indie Artist Cheerleader and Advocate…
