It’s truly taken a very long time for me to recharge and refocus my efforts. Although many people have championed behind GMA and myself and shown a great deal of support and push, it has still remained a pretty lonely walk. The best analogy is how it’s said, “If you have a workout partner, your chances of holding fast to your workout goals and regimen are higher.” So basically, I’ve been really exhausting myself trying to stay SELF-Motivated. Leading up to this very moment, I’ve been going through a transformation and true realization of facts and concerns that needed addressing, which truly lends to the authenticity of this NEW video, RUN. Dig It.
from email blast:
Nearly one year ago to date, I was on a magical, vibrant and expansive equestrian farm shooting the video for “Shut the Gate,” the leading single off Good Morning Amy. In May, Director Dominic Luongo and I collaborated on the simple, sleek and special-effects driven “Just Doin’ It” video, which is climbing to 500k views on YouTube. Over the last few weeks we’ve been workin’ hard to bring you what we’ve dubbed a Long Form Video for the album’s third single, “Run.”
The visual treatment for “Run” is unlike any we’ve done thus far. Characters, sub-plots and time sequences develop organically in this video, which features many new talents, faces and locations both in and outside of Buffalo. It explores the deeper, darker side of Billy Drease as he goes through a physical transformation, experiencing love, pain, loss, recovery and renewal.
“Run,” produced by long-time friend and collaborator Trevor “TrevThorne” Drayton, is available oniTunes today. Check out a sneak peak of the video now and look for the extended feature to drop soon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-cuxOVmSPk
Just in case you’re not in the KNOW….now you know!! High-powered evening on the horizon and I suggest you do yourself a favor to be there.
The release of the album GMA – Good Morning Amy is swiftly approaching on the winds of progress and prosperity. Thank you in advance for your efforts, support and encouragement. Hope to see you there.

Tomorrow, Saturday, April 17, the video for Shut the Gate featuring Richie English, and the talents of kids of family and friends will debut at the Market Arcade on Screen #2, starting around 10pm. In case you didn’t know, my video for the single off of the Good Morning Amy album, was accepted into the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival. So, this should be an incredible night to say the least.
For those of you that can make it, I’ll see you there. For those of you that can’t, my apologies for the late notice.

I guess I got my answer after pondering (read previous entry) on how Snoop Dog might feel about the Grammy’s seeing as how he has been nominated numerous times, but has yet to take an award home to his mantle. We’ll, the DoggFather has issued a statement, a pretty definitive one at that. Props to Curry Kid from OTTR (which broadcasts the Grammy Chase as a weekly segment.)
Grammy Chase x Off the Top Radio:
Another great conversation with my good brother at Off the Top Radio, Curry Kid. I referred to him in my first video blog as Kid Curry, which he politely made me aware of..LOL
Well, in my defense, I told him that I was just conditioned to hip hop names that began with the word “KID” as in Kid Frost, Kid Capri, Kid Cudi, Kid N Play..lol. Considering that I’m not the first person to screw it up, Curry is doing some name change contemplating, nothing too drastic, but just something that all artists go through.
That said, enjoy the PODCAST
