My songwriting partner and I have become very disappointed with the direction music is headed. We are hearing songs that no longer grab us by our heartstrings. So we decided to write songs that reflect the women we have become. Our music isn't sexual, degrading, nor lacking taste; in our eyes at least, we just wanted to hear the kind of music we deserve. Just because we're a little older, doesn't mean we don't listen to music. If the record companies give us what we want to hear, we would buy it. Instead, they market to people who aren't old enough to drive. They let the teenagers determine what is marketable or not. Anyhoo, in a nut shell, we are writing the music that we want to hear. Adult Music. Music that we consider.....music to feed our souls. Hey!!!....we like it!!!!!
Welcome to our space!!!
TJ & Kim
Kim and TJ definitely have their own style. You're either into it or not. Known for creating wicked four-part chords, the music Kim creates tends to be a neo-soul type with a touch of Hip Hop and strong influences from Jazz and classic R&B rhythms. It should be noted that Kim mainly prefers to be behind the scenes as songwriter/composer of various music genres and has no aspirations for fame and stardom. TJ is helping with this project but has a another successful career in medicine. But the story behind this dynamic duo is as follows: one day while in the car, Kim and TJ hit the scan button to find a song that fit their mood. There was a song about "car rims, gold and platinum teeth, and I do believe something about a stripper." There were also multiple songs about parties and dancing. Needless to say, a CD was played. While they both grew up poor, struggled and overcame many obstacles, they found it hard to believe that they could not find a song that connected to them at this point in their lives. With the exception of a few wonderful mainstream artists, it was apparent that the music they had grown up listening to had not grown up with them. Looking for subject matter that was not teen oriented was difficult to find within the urban popular radio rotation. While the two of them understand the way the industry works today, they could not help but feel like a forgotten group of potential consumers. Too young to always want to listen to old school, too old to want to listen to songs about gold teeth and rims, and too urban to always want to hear jazz. Given the music background each of them had, they decided to make the music that both wanted to hear while hopefully taking others with them on the wonderful journey of self- discovery and reflection.
