Not that we are giving his age away, but Craymo used to imitate his fave artists listening to his 45 records. He played the sax in third grade and wrote his first song by the young age of sixteen. Can we get any more creative than this? By high school Craymo was DJ-ing at a local lounge and on a radio station. We just love young creators.

It was in college when his music took a new tune. A sound of love and vibrance. A sound of an innovative soul who wanted to be free. A sound of compassion and energy reminiscing of an older soul who lives in all of us today. The beats, the tone, the rhythm will transcend your moment into a happy moment every time you hit play!

When you hear Craymo, you will feel happy, upbeat, and realize that reality is real…and that YOU are just fine the way you are. His lyrics fascinate the human inner being- letting us know that we are OK and able. His music heals a broken soul. Craymo transcends the music market in ways that feelings become touchable, attainable, and able to be dealt with – with just one verse.

Some may call him a healer…I call him an Innovative Creature.


Nelly’s Echo

Nelly's Echo
“Nelly’s Echo is neither a band nor a solo musician, but a concept of the musical experience associated with its creator, Nelson. They have self-released five successful albums in addition to having their version of the Bill Withers Classic, “Ain’t No Sunshine” reach #7 on the iTunes R&B charts while also having their original song, “Voices of the People” named a World Cup 2014 Super Song Top 20 semi-finalist.

Since 2009, Nelly’s Echo has performed at over 500 colleges across the United States as a solo/duo act. When not on college tours, the full band regularly performs in the Mid-Atlantic region at tradition clubs and casinos as well as for personal/private events for clients such as Andretti Autosports, The Democratic National Convention after-party, The Baltimore Grand Prix, Boordy Vineyards, and Maryhill Winery, to name a few.

Nelly’s Echo has had the privilege of not only entertaining soldiers stationed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba but also participated in Season 3 of The Voice as a member of Team Christina in addition to being featured at TEDX Wilmington. Nelly’s Echo has taken great pride in sharing the stage with the likes of Trombone Shorty, Travis McCoy, Sean Kingston, Misterwives, Butch Walker & Boyz II Men.

Relying on lessons learned from his childhood in Africa and his everyday experiences, Nelly’s Echo storytelling style has led to some comparing their musicality & storytelling to that of Jason Mraz and John Mayer. In the end, the goal of Nelly’s Echo is to use music to reach the four corners of the earth, while sharing the message of positivity, life, hope, and love to everyone that it comes in contact.”

The Innovative Actor Andrew Roth

andrew roth

“Andrew Roth studied both theater and film at Stonybrook University. Coupled with a strong background in martial arts and other disciplines, he cultivated self-control of the body and mind. Drawing on the experience garnered from roles in over 70 domestic and international films plus several television shows, Andrew brings intensity, subtlety of human nature, and realism to all characters he creates. Andrew’s wide range of roles includes heroes and villains, several artists, addicts, a singer, a surfer, a cowboy, and even Christ’s Apostle Paul.

When not working in front of the camera Andrew works behind the scenes in all aspects of film production. Working as a Director, Assistant Director, Producer, Stunt Coordinator, and Writer enabled him to create his own opportunities rather than waiting for them to knock. Understanding the ability of guiding one’s destiny by taking the initiative whenever possible helped Andrew to avoid being type cast in any one genre or role; something he hopes will continue throughout his career.”

A Dream Is Just A Dream

This is the post excerpt.

A Dream Is Just A Dream…

Or NOT!  Dreams are either given to us as part of our purpose/plan, or created through wants and needs, fears and anger, or any other emotion capable of creating. Yes, creating. We create our emotions. We create our state of being. We create our situations through our thoughts. Thoughts become things.

We can either create wonderful and majestic lifestyles, or we can create failure. The choice is ours. Somedays, we may wake from a dream that is very far fetched and not reality. These are not the dreams I am speaking of. I am relating to our life destiny dreams, our purpose, our mission in life. If you can think it, you can become it. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. So a dream is not always “just a dream.” Get it?
