AleyKat

I found another SL musician I think has an amazing voice and who gives a great show. AleyKat sings beautifully.  Her bio reads, "Aley has been singing for as long as she can remember and is really excited to be able to share some of the eclectic mix of songs she's been collecting. She loves singing bluesy numbers as well as more upbeat 60s/70s soul...with a bit of pop thrown in occasionally. Her heart is with Musical Theatre too so look for some covers from her favourite musicals at some point... :)"
She is managed by Whispering Sands Live Promotions.  You can find them and more about AleyKat here: http://wslpromo.net/

John at Dirty Grind


SUNDAY ~ SEPTEMBER 4 ~ SUNDAY 5 TO 8 THE DIRTY GRIND ~ The Dirty Grind Independent Artist Community proudly presents our newest Featured Visual Artist, Johannes1977 Resident. His gallery will be opening this Sunday, the 4th of September with three hours of live music on our main stage and featured gallery artist venue. David Csiszer 5p Jamba LosAngeles 6p Phemie Alcott 7p

More info about the exhibit from the sim states: "Johannes1977 Resident is one of the grids premier artists while concurrently a first life United States Marine Corps Officer, who did two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. While deployed in war zones, Johannes1977 Resident used his photography skills and his artistic outlook to capture his view of the wars and scenery. His passion for black and white photography, sepia and vintage tones are a signature glimpse into Johannes1977’s love of by-gone aesthetic. Not only found behind the camera, Johannes1977 is also an instrumental force in supporting other artists with many wildly successful endeavours such as Kultivate Magazine (formally Windlight Magazine) and Windlight Galleries. His community of artists helps raise funds for various non-profits, and he even co-founded Team Diabetes of SL. Johannes1977 has a long resume of accomplishments within SL, and it is an honour to announce him as the newest member of The Dirty Grind Independent Artist Community Family of artists, supporters and patrons."
