“Don’t push me ’cause I’m close to the edge
I’m trying not to lose my head
It’s like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin’ under”

The Message

Hi, I was watching the documentary ‘Hip Hop Evolution’ on Netflix the other day and it made me think of some of the heavy and emotional conversations I have been having with corporate women lately. Especially women who work in a mostly male environment. For them it is like the song says, they are “trying […]

Of flesh and blood I’m made

Dido Thank you

“I want to thank you for
giving me the best day of my life”

Thank you

Remember Dido? When she first came to Amsterdam she wanted to drink soy milk, which was nowhere to be found hahaha. OMG it took us ages to find it for her. And that was the first time I had even heard of soy milk back in 2000 lol. Anyway… She rose to fame when Eminem sampled […]

“Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car, we can’t rewind we’ve gone too far
Pictures came and broke your heart
Put down the blame on VCR”

Video killed the radio star

“Don’t you get sad and lonely
You need a change from what you do all day
Ain’t no sense in all your crying
Pick it up and throw it into shape
That’s why you need, oh that’s why
This is what you need, I’ll give you what you need”

What you need

Hey, You know I am all about action and results. Listen girl, that is the only way you could work with artists. They don’t like people who talk but don’t deliver. And I guess that is how I have now been able to create results in my business. No bullshit, because talk is cheap. So […]

Glennis Grace

This woman’s work

Hey, Did you see Glennis Grace’s version of this beautiful Kate Bush song? It’s is truly amazing. I have been following her US journey and I have to say her story (which I have only recently dived into) is quite amazing. It is a story of focus, passion, resilience and really hard work. That is […]

Lauryn Hill

“Ready or not, here I come, you can’t hide”

Ready or not

Remember Lauryn Hill? Girlllll, she broke barriers for female artists. She was the first to mix hip-hop with R&B and made her debut album “The miseducation of Lauryn Hill” sell more than Madonna’s. For 20 years she was the only female hip-hop artist with a number one song (Cardi B broke her record last year […]

“If at first you don’t succeed (first you don’t succeed),
Dust yourself off, and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again”

Try again

Remember Aaliyah? I remember the day she passed away, really I can still see myself standing where I was when I heard the news. It was August 25, 2001 and that day I was going to work with an artist at Lowlands festival. We were all in shock at the festival. Why? Because she was only […]

“Cause a rose is still a rose
Baby, girl, you’re still a flower
He can’t lead you and then take you
Make you and then break you
Darlin’, you hold the power”

A rose is still a rose

Last week we lost a queen. And for once I was lost for words. All I could do was listen to her songs and feel my emotions with every one of them. The lyrics to this one kept going on in my head. I consciously fell in love with Aretha in 2003 when I entered […]
