Annie Wood – Making And Creating Good Vibes


Annie Wood is a woman of many talents. She’s an actress (film, television, theatre, and voice-over), writer, artist, and an award winning playwright. She’s also the founder of a volunteer website www.dogoodstuff.org, and she frequently contributes articles to the Huffington Post.

She’s charming, witty, and downright delightful and I’m fortunate enough to have her as a friend. Hopefully, after this interview you’ll adore her as much as I do.

Annie, you are a very talented lady – actress, writer, artist, and photographer—are you more passionate about one over the other?

Ever since I can remember I’ve been drawn to creating. When I was a little kid my obsession was about being an actress. I took my first class when I was ten and got my first agent when I was 12. I dreamed of going to Broadway. I was in-love with musicals. Although, I wrote my first story when I was eight and the joy of photography found me early on too. I often feel like I’m a writer who acts and creates visual art as well. Basically, I just feel passionate about living a creative life each and every day.

Jack of None – Who Shot Bukowski


Jack of None is an experimental rock band comprised of the Syjuco siblings. Maxine’s lyrics are mainly delivered via spoken word over a backdrop of electronic embellishments. Artistic in nature, the ten tracks that make up the group’s latest release, Who Shot Bukowski, fuse together elements of electro, garage rock, blues, and new wave. Maxine’s voice is mesmerizing and it bodes well with the multiplicity of the band’s experimental sound. There is a lot to discover here. The more time you invest into this album, the more it gives back. – NIN

Flying Mammals – Vier


Flying Mammals is an all-sibling alt-pop band hailing from Idaho. These talented gents cut their teeth in various bands before forming their own unit. The group’s latest is aptly titled Vier, which means four in German, since it is their fourth release and also an homage to the addition of a fourth sibling to the fold. The Birdsall brothers recorded Vier in a castle in Germany with the aid of Grammy winning engineer Sylvia Masy. The concept album is a clever collection of melodic power pop tunes that incorporate rock, funk, folk, electro, and world music into the mix. The addition of Masy’s unusual techniques during the recording process is what makes Vier the Flying Mammals most creative work to date.- NIN

Collide – Color of Nothing


I’ve always admired the esteemed and unclassifiable outlet that is Collide, and I can honestly say Color of Nothing is by far their best release to date. Rooted in dark wave, electronic at its core, Collide’s overall sound is distinct and uniquely its own.

Made possible by Pledge Music, Color of Nothing is the dynamic duo’s sixth release and they created something that is musically profound. Hypnotic, atmospheric, and majestically epic each song is a piece of the greater whole, building on what has come previously to create a seamless aesthetic movement. Intricate and full of many layers, the album seduced me before the end of the second track and my attention was immediately drawn into its contemplative and passionate world, which is lavishly illustrated by Statik’s amazing mixing and sound design and kaRIN’s spell binding ethereal vocals.
