BukekaStyle and TL Meet
When Bukeka Blakemore and TL Jones met, desire to collaborate was immediate. TL with a knack for being able to quickly create compositions had a chorus structured to a song called Just like the Phoenix, but the versus were not emerging like they normally do. Bukeka with a track record of writing lyrics are inspiring called TL as said “let me take a stab at it”.
Then one early morning Bukeka sent a recording of her singing these lyrics: “There’s no mystery or myth as to how long I’ve been doing this, inspiring possibly in the millions those I may never see. I’ve been consistent in my game but now I’m ready for a change, it’s time to let go of the old me, and rise again”.
The EP Release
The title track of the EP Just like the Phoenix is co-written by BukekaStyle and TL Jones. The recording of the title track Just like the Phoenix was released in August 2017 on the Sillymoneyrecords label. In May 2017 the EP by the same name was completed at Westend Recording Studio located in Kansas City, Kansas. On August 25, 2017 the EP was officially released.
Just like the Phoenix Documentary Short and Music Video
This song is now the inspiration for a documentary short & music video. The planning for this film production includes shooting in Kansas City and Los Angeles. Just like the Phoenix film project will capture the inspiring message of rising above obstacles while maintaining the inherent beauty that lies within.
This is the one of the first interviews that I did in regards to my EP "Just like the Phoenix". Who knew that this interview would lead to me working with them in the future on my next music video!
