The onset of 2013 has seen some major changes in Semi’s musical journey and none more so than

artist who lives by what he sings and that love is at the heart of every song. Semi describes his music as inspirational reggae and that is what his music does to you. It lifts you up when you’re feeling down and motivates to set your feet on higher grounds.

string of hits including his chart topper “Put Yourself In My Place”.
In 2004, having spent time in the UK and the US, he returned home after recording and performing in Boston under the Wild Cubby music label. He set about purposing his music with conscious lyrics with an aim to stimulate positive thinking in all it gets in contact with. Since then Semi has performed alongside some of the best in the business including Sanchez, Gregory Isaacs, Culture, John Holt, Shaggy and Wyclef Jean.
Semi’s musical journey has taken him far and wide around the world. He gained national recognition with his band October 4 when he performed at the opening of the St. Lucia Jazz Festival in 2000. He’s acquired a wealth of experience as an artiste having worked the hotel, club and cruise ship circuits, which eventually in the early nineties led to international recognition as his migration along with the band Summit to the United Kingdom. Through the links of managers Pam and Paul Castle, the band Summit appeared on many high profile UK shows, one of them being the BBC’s Pebble Mill, and with the assistance of publisher David Most, the group signed a recording contract with RCA Records.
The more one discovers about Semi and his music, the more you begin to realize that behind that
endearing smile, is a human being, and an artiste who has a deep love for humanity, and that as a result of his music gift, lives will be touched.
SINCE 85 explained that the name signifies the beginning and birth of stardom and the forefront. Meaning she has been coming to the stage since birth. Infiltrating a male dominated industry is a personal pursuit for this female emcee…”SINCE 85″. Her lyrical skills combined with smooth southern beats make her a force to be reckoned with. “SINCE 85″ is looking to change the negative light on what female rappers “CAN’T DO”. She’s performed at various venues across the country and her advice to others is… “The best way to do you, is to stop watchin’ me!”.
SINCE 85 LIVE!!!!!
Yeah Yeah I know, Pat ain’t Shit! LOL. I’m just a real intellectual guy who also likes to clown around. I handle my business, and I’m working on myself as a man and continuing my quest for knowledge. I’ve been on both sides of the tracks. I’ve done things in my life that I’m not proud of, but I’ve learned from all my experiences so I’ll never make the same mistake twice. I love music, music is my thing. I have some vices that I’m working on, nobody is perfect. I got the best of both, no, the best of all worlds: street smarts, book smarts, and I even managed to get some common sense, LOL. Holla at your boy if you’re real, if you’re fake and got some little sideways comments, KICK ROCKS! Shout-out to my brothers standing on the square; you know, with the LIGHT. Shout-out to all my US Veterans as well. Air Force!
If you are racist, you should keep on listening to your parents so you will fulfill the racist stereotype who post insensitive remarks on these sites, who will die in a hail of hatred, paranoid of the world around you. Or if you would like, there is an alternative. You can sit back, enjoy creation, and if you don’t like it, move on and find something you do like, or you could jump off a bridge to your demise. LMAO!!!

Holla At Ya Boi – By Tha Black Knights
Haunting rock with a guitar-heavy sound. Cathartic lyrics dealing with loss and faith. A half-yelling vocal delivery over a barrage of distortion while maintaining anthemic melodies that would have anyone singing along.

Growing up in Riga, Latvia (formally the USSR) and now residing in Long Beach California for the past twelve years, Maxim Senin learned early on the value of learning to play and perform music. With both parents playing the piano it was their desire to give him a solid musical education, and for him to understand and appreciate music; learning with classical music training. When he was in the first grade, his parents got him a violin, but he quickly lost interest. They attempted to teach Maxim the piano. The problem was that the family was poor and could not afford a piano for him to practice on. While in the fourth grade, his parents bought him a clarinet which he learned how to play classical and jazz relatively well. At this point, Maxim’s interest in music subsided. It wasn’t until college when many of his friends played music and were in bands that his interest in music was once again peaked. Since then he has not looked back and continues to write and perform music.
A software engineer by trade, and also a private pilot, Maxim Senin’s love for music is now a large part of his life and is deeply engraved in his daily thoughts and actions. His preference in music is laid-back rock and a touch of folk with an emphasis on his lyrical composition. Choosing love and love triangles as themes for his music and songs, betrayal and unanswered love looms over and is easily detected in his sound. Aside from love tragically gone wrong, Maxim has a great appreciation for songs that are reflective, with a twist and plot in the story line, and that have hope and humor in them. His music comes both from what he observes around him and emotions within that is vented through his lyrics and musical composition.
Citing influences such as Mark Knopfler, J.J. Cale, and Eric Clapton, Maxim finds himself inspired by the likes of Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Sting, and Roxette while also enjoying the music of other icon artists like Coldplay, Duran Duran, U2, The Who, Grateful dead, and Oasis. Although at this stage in his music career, Maxim has not really played any high profile arena type performances mainly because that’s not really his thing. “I’m not a big fan of large crowds”, states Maxim, I also think that my music, at least at the moment, is to be heard by people on their couches or in their cars, not 10,000-seat stadiums. Although, if I had one dream I’d like to fulfill, I wouldn’t mind playing a duet with Clapton or Sting”.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Maxim played every instrument on his debut EP release “The Taming of the Wolf” including the acoustic guitar, piano, ukulele, harmonica, keyboard, and all percussions. Maxim has great aspirations for the success of the new release. When asked if he could retain his artistic integrity with increased commercial success he replied with no hesitation, “I think yes. I’m open-minded about learning from other artists and listening to friends’ advice, but at the same time I think I am on the way of developing my own unique style. That doesn’t mean, however, that this style won’t evolve over time”.
With his debut EP release The “Taming of the Wolf”, Maxim Senin has only just begun. He has plans to promote the record vigorously and hopes to release a full length album by the end of 2012. The Taming of the Wolf is available for sale at CD Baby and by digital download on iTunes along with many other online distribution outlets.
