Open Mic Performance at the Stood tonite! (Purchase College)

I am playing a brand new song tonight entitled, "My Heart A'Tremble", at Purchase College's open mic at the Stood. I will also play a cover song "Hackensack" done in the Katy Perry version. This song was originally done by Fountains of Wayne, Hackensack. However, I really liked Katy Perry's unplugged version of this song:

Video of tonight's performance soon to come!

Purchase College's Soul Voices Choir: Camille Wallace solo

Here is a video from our recent performance at the Newberger Museum of Art here on campus. The song, "I Know I've Been Changed," is, in my opinion, our strongest song. It is a powerfully moving song, emitting a sense of strength and knowledge of a "higher power" through it's emotive, minor chord composition.

The Rhetoric of Reggae Music: Interesting Website!

Wa gwaaan -- I just wanted to share this pretty cool website I came across. It is called "The Rhetoric of Reggae Music," and actually seems to be a web page from a class taught at the University of Vermont back in 2004. I would have loved to have taken this class; the subject matter focused on exploring the " origins, characteristics, social phenomena, and messages to be found in an African-Caribbean musical form known as reggae music," as well as Reggae around the world. The site has links to related Reggae resources as well as Suggested Readings, which I will certainly be picking out a few from in the near future. What a cool class though! I've used this website as a resource for myself before, fulfilling my curiosity about historical aspects of Reggae music.
