Alternative Rock band Hands of Spite bring life to insightful new EP By Jenna Gengler Boston based Alternative Rock band Hands of Spite released their debut album on January 24, 2023. The band features frontmen Austin Bullock and Sam Gelston, both on guitar and vocals, and is backed by rhythm powerhouses Zac Stein and Nate Belton on drums/vocals and bass respectively. Their new project, titled Inchoate, dives into the idea of not being fully formed, continuing to grow and develop into something bigger and better than you once were. Matching the EP’s concept, the title “Inchoate” is described as “just begun and so not fully formed or developed”. It seems to be the perfect descriptor for new and upcoming band. The project was pioneered during the Covid-19 Quarantine and provided a way for the group to really get into a flow of their own. “Because of the situation, we were able to write and practice the pieces as much as possible,” Sam explained. “I think it allowed us to release something with a really accurate representation of our actual performances.” The feature track on this EP is “What Do You Say”, a song co-written by frontmen Austin and Sam. It dives into the question of who you are as a person and what you have done in your life. Not only does the song showcase the ability of both writers, but presents the band in an incredible and honest light. It is an articulate show of the band's diversity and musicality. The album, Inchoate, as a whole leads you through the stages of grief. As you listen to the song you are pulled through a series of definitive emotions, all redefined to be more accessible and easier to both understand and listen to. It is an amazing introduction to Hands of Spite as a band and a thoughtful lead up to their next project and first full length album. The album is set to release later in 2023. “We are so grateful to be here,” said the band. “We feel really lucky to be here, making music together and building ourselves from the ground up.” Though Hands of Spite already has a strong base and compelling music, they are continuing to grow and develop as a band as well as individuals, as their latest project so aptly describes. Keep an eye out for Hands of Spite in the coming year as they continue to release new music and plan for an upcoming tour. They are truly looking forward to growing with their fanbase and building up a community with the music that they create. Be sure to stay tuned in to Hands of Spite on various platforms for new music, visuals and social posts. Instagram: Facebook: Spotify: Website:

Duvee Davis and his hip hop career find new life after relocating to Bangkok, Thailand By Brennan Stebbins For Duvee Davis, boxing was life when he was a kid. Even when he would have rather been out playing with friends, he dutifully headed to his father’s boxing gym where he was often forced to spar with grown adults. “I was just getting beat up pretty much every day I went into the gym,” he says. But one night during a fight a DJ played Naughty By Nature and the music had an instant effect on Davis. He won his first fight that night and became obsessed with aggressive hip hop. “It motivated me to go to the gym, motivated me to fight, trained my brain to be ready to take all the stuff I was dealing with,” he says. “It was like a therapist or something for me.” And the young Davis was dealing with a lot. He lived in perpetual fear of disappointing his father and the physical and mental abuse that would follow. His father started an affair with a drug-addicted cleaning lady who then sexually abused the 13-year-old. She would later run over and kill his father in the family driveway. Hip hop helped so much, in fact, that Davis pursued it professionally, but he unknowingly impregnated a singer he’d shared the stage with. He only found out he had a son when the boy was four months old, and then his mother departed, leaving him a single father. Music came to a halt; Davis needed to shift gears and earn money. So he enlisted in the US army and found himself serving in war-torn Iraq. His struggles only mounted after he returned, so he took the bold step of moving himself and his son across the world to Bangkok, Thailand to leave his emotional baggage behind and get a fresh start. “I remember when I went overseas, the feeling of touching down in Kuwait or wherever and it felt like I was free of my past,” he says. “I wanted to move to Bangkok for the low cost of living, then I remembered that feeling and said I’d like to do that. It’s like a new start.” And with more money in the bank, Davis – and his son – are back in the hip hop game. “It’s so cool,” he says. “My son produces beats and it’s a great thing we can do together. He’s got the new style. I’m more boom bap traditional with the kick and the snare when I make beats but he’s like the new school trap.” Davis has released more than a dozen singles since 2020, including songs like “Glue” and “Success” this year. He’s also put out music videos for “Flowstate,” “Born Alone Die Alone,” and “Glue.” “Glue,” which already has nearly 30,000 plays on YouTube alone, represents everything going well in a relationship with a woman and the video features several women dancing. But filming pornography is illegal in Thailand and carries heavy consequences – while filming the video at a hotel, the manager thought the crew was filming pornography and Davis and others had to rush out and go on the run for a while. The video for “Flowstate” was filmed around his Bangkok condo, and “Born Alone Die Alone” was filmed in Bangkok’s Chinatown. “I want to start spreading my message,” Davis says. “For children that have been abused and to break the cycle of child abuse. I have my son, I had a tough upbringing with my stepmother and father and I’m breaking the cycle, not repeating the same thing. I want to spread that message and I want to make something that my son can step in and take over when he’s older and run with it.” Davis is back in the studio this fall working on four new songs with his son. They’ll be part of a future EP featuring his son’s beats. He’s also in the process of making another music video, and plans to start doing more on his YouTube channel about music and life in Bangkok. “Having money in the bank and not worrying about paying the bills, man that eases anxiety and bad thoughts a whole lot,” he says. “Not having to see the same people, the same things that I associate with the past trauma definitely helps. It’s a fresh start, a rebirth. I’m 39, almost 40,

Former Fort Worth teacher releases genre-bending EP as OG ACID FUNK By Brennan Stebbins Terence T. Brown has been involved in the Fort Worth, Texas music scene for more than two decades. Until recently, however, his day job was teaching audiovisual and multimedia production at a high school. But the global pandemic gave Brown some time to think – and shined a spotlight on all the things in life he was just settling for. So he called it quits last year, rented an office and devoted his life to his true passions: making music and movies. He recorded a horror-themed album during COVID lockdown called Slasher Flick and released it last year under the stage name PRIEST. Now the genre-bending Brown has followed that project up with the five-song EP (aka) OG ACID FUNK – which is also his new name. “There were too many other artists using the name PRIEST and I wanted out of it,” he says. “A buddy of mine listened to my music and said man, it sounds like acid jazz, you should call it acid funk. I’m 51 and I’ve got some younger friends who always refer to me as OG. It’s definitely original.” OG ACID FUNK’s sound changes from song to song, not just project to project. He’s been influenced by artists like George Clinton, Rob Zombie, Fantastic Negrito, Godsleep and Fishbone and used to run an underground label that focused on hip hop. “I used to have a band back in the day and they didn’t know where to put us on the shelves,” he says. “We called it funk soul. That’s a little bit of rock, funk, R&B. I’m still the same way, everything that I hear and like I mash it all together.” He loves Rob Zombie because he’s a “straight up rocker” who makes some “dope ass horror films” – Brown’s other love. He calls himself a child of funk, the first genre that got him into music. “A lot of friends say it sounds like Prince,” he says. “What they don’t understand is there’s a whole genre of music Prince is representing. Parliament Funkadelic, all these old school funk players and that’s where that Prince sound I kind of rest on top of comes from. I do dig deep into my funk roots and I also love rapping so there’s some of that in there. I grew up in the hip hop culture.” OG ACID FUNK sums it up in the third track from the EP, “Who Am I,” where he sings: “My flow is so Vincent Price/I’m the lyrical Steven King/I keep George Clinton in a hot sauce bottle/I swear, put that there on everything.” He’s getting ready to produce a music video for “Faces,” the EP’s opening track which still leaves Brown breathless when he listens to it. He follows that up with the bass-heavy “The Harlot” and then “Who Am I,” which tells you everything you need to know without boring you. “I’m really talking about who I am,” he says. “I’m all about Fort Worth and bettering this place, just making it a better place for everybody,” he says. “I really just want to be free to do me and in the process of doing me, bless everybody I come in contact with.” Make sure to stay connected to OG ACID FUNK on all platforms for new music, videos and social posts.

Diamond D. Taylor puts life on display in new single ‘No fuckboys’
By John Hacker

LOS ANGELES — New singer songwriter Diamond D. Taylor may only be 19 going on 20, but she has enough life experience to know she demands the best of people she’s around and that means “No fuckboys and No Broke Niggas.”
The title of Taylor’s new single is a warning to those who might try to gaslight her and other girls that their games won’t work and emotions are not to be toyed with.
“So many guys out here, they're liars and they’re manipulators and they gaslight so many girls,” Taylor said. “I was like I want to write a song about this, this is what I'm experiencing, I’m experiencing a lot of these fuckboys, they’re coming into my life, they’re making and breaking promises and not even realizing the trauma they’re leaving these girls with. You don’t know in the moment that you are having this negative impact on someone’s life when you actually are. So it’s like the behavior you’re exhibiting is really horrendous and you're messing with girls feelings and it’s not ok.”
Growing up in the home of Jack Harlow, Bryson Tiller and Jennifer Lawrence — Louisville, Ky. — Taylor spent her earliest years focused on acting. She attended the Walden School for Fine and Performing Arts in Louisville at age 12 and by age 13 she was laser-focused on being a YouTube personality, gaining nearly 1,000 followers in a short time.
Three years later she decided she wanted to focus on acting, but then at age 16 she realized the impact music had made on her through her adolescents and into her teenage years and decided to try singing and songwriting.
She put out a couple of soulful and melodic R&B tunes, “Do You Ever Notice Me,” and “Young Love,” and worked on developing her voice and her style in music.
“Music has always been in my life,” Taylor said. “Music helps me get into certain characters in acting, it helps me feel certain emotions and evoke certain things, it helps in my happy moments and my sad moments. I guess music has always kind of been there, but until I was about 17 I didn’t feel like I was making music that really resonated with me or resonated with my generation.
“I was listening to other artists mix with different beats and synthesize and I was like, I’m a black girl and I want to be in rock but I don't want to typically sing. I want to rap it and harmonize with certain beats.”
That’s when her music changed and gained an edge and grit — as she describes it “If you would take Linkin Park and put it in girl form.” That edge shows with her latest single “No fuckboys and No Broke Niggas.”
“I discovered Nirvana a couple of years ago when I was watching loads of documentaries on the past and previous decades and I was enthralled by their music,” Taylor said. “Also I like Alanis Moressette and more recently I discovered Flyleaf and I really found out I love music that sounds like that, the harmonies, the instruments, kind of like the gritty guitar and the bass in the background. While I was listening to Aaliyah, I was also hearing that before she died she was trying to explore that pop punk type sound and I was like, I kind of want to do that because it sounds really cool and no one’s really doing that. So I guess that’s kind of how I made my sound. It’s gritty, more edgy, I want to say like dirty but rock and rap kind of sound.”
“No fuckboys and No Broke Niggas,” is out on all platforms now and Taylor is working on an as yet unnamed EP to come out maybe in the fall. She said this new EP would really showcase her versatility and voice.
“These new songs are going to be more versatile,” Taylor said. “The songs on this upcoming EP won’t sound the same and it’s like that so you can see the different facets of me. I’m writing a song now where the lyrics are more cathartic, you can really feel where I’m coming from instead of being just a catchy tune. It’s more about who I am in my journey of discovery as this young adult out here, navigating career, navigating li
