This year has been amazing for Raye Cole Music. I feel like my dreams are my destiny. This year I lived my dreams.
What’s up world? Hope all is well. I haven’t spoken to you guys in a while. I had to take a break from music. Now I’m back and I have some wonderful news. My music is featured in the film “Cronies.”
Hola amigos, what is going on? How are you? How have you been? I hope all is well with you and yours. I have been a busy little indie artist. I’m not complaining though. I appreciate the fact that I can do what I love. If I didn’t do anything or stay busy I wouldn’t have anything to blog about. I have performed in a few showcases, I did a little volunteer work, and I attended my sister’s high school recital.
Hello, all. How’s it going? Are you ready for my latest adventures? I hope so, because I have a lot to share with you. I am Raye Cole and this is the Life of an Indie artist in St Louis. A lot has been going on—parties, performances, working and volunteering. I no longer work for the RFT. I enjoyed my time as a street team member but it was time to move on. Since then, I have picked up a new volunteer opportunity with a well-known television network in St. Louis. Later on I will give the name of this network, but I would like to get some more experience with them first. I am still volunteering with KDHX. I enjoy volunteering with them. They are very welcoming and very friendly. You can tell that they really appreciate their volunteers. Now, let’s get to the parties.
Hello world. Hello readers. How are you? I hope all is well. I am doing fantastic. Guess what? I went to the Grammys! No, I wasn’t nominated for one, but I did win a free trip! It was an amazing night. Let me start at the beginning.
Hello all, it is me again back with some great adventures. Brace yourself. My name is Raye Cole and this is life of an indie artist in St. Louis.
I don’t know if you guys are spiritual or if you believe in a higher power, but I do. God has been good to me. This year has really come in with a bang and I anticipate more bangs throughout the course of the year. A major bang has sounded in my life.
Hello world. I am back with fresh adventures. Get ready for the life of an indie artist in St. Louis. The last time I performed was back in December. I had to take a mini break from performing. I have not performed all month. I needed the break because I needed time to “miss it”. I'm looking forward to my next performances, which I have four of set up for next month. I have a performance on Feb 7th at Melt on Cherokee. I have a performance on Feb 21st at Jones Plaza in Illinois. I have a show on Feb 26th at the Blank Space on Cherokee. My last show is on Feb 28th at the Regional Arts Commission Building on Delmar. Check out the flyers for more info.
Hello readers, it is time for an update in the “Life of an Indie Artist in St. Louis.” Last year was phenomenal. I had my downs, but I definitely had my ups. I had a couple of shows in December and I also went and supported my little sister. She participated in a show with her high school choir. I guess singing just runs in the blood. Anywho, let’s get to the stories.
It has been awhile sense we last spoke. I am great. How are you? I hope all is well. Welp, I have some great adventures to share with you and some concerns. First, I know I was supposed to do a follow up to my last blog. So, I discovered something about myself. I have to write about an event or performance right after it happens. If I don’t write about an event immediately after, I lose the passion for it. I apologize for that. If you are still curious, I will give you a brief run-through. I volunteered, I worked on music, and I kicked it!
