I had the pleasure of meeting this performer at a Jamie Drastik show this summer in Manhattan. I didn’t know he was an artist but I knew he was special because it was the middle of a hot and humid NYC summer and he arrived at the venue wearing one of those hats that looks like a bear head with long scarf-like flaps that hang down to your waist and paws on the ends. He was a really nice guy; playful, really open and super friendly right off the bat–no ‘tude whatsoever. He even let me wear his bear hat toward the end of the night.
A couple of weeks later, I got to hear his music. I really like his song “F*ck the Other Side.” It’s aggressive and packed full of energy. I had the opportunity to see him perform this song live and, luckily for us, that performance is on YouTube. I get chills watching it even on my small computer screen. And you know how I feel about chills. Check it out below.
Another one of my faves is “Muse” with Olivia Cipolla. Now, I didn’t put this in my bio because there is no subtle way to add “I love pole dancing” in there. But I do. I love it. And this song makes me wanna crawl around the floor in my underwear. Listen to Arie “BeBe Boohgz” Dixon and Olivia Coppola’s new project, The Truth Album and then download it for free. You’ll be happy you did.
