ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Cody Tyler

What 3 words would you use to describe your sound?

Organic and powerful.

Where are you currently based out of?

Los Angeles, CA

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever experienced playing a live show?

I remember in Miami when I performed at Art Basil, this girl and her friends were on the opposite side of me and just kept yelling over and over again.  One of them yelled out, “You think you bad, huh!?  Who you supposed to be!?”  I was in the zone, so I gave it no attention, but when I finished my set I was like - really?

If you could go on a dream world tour with any 3 artists, who would you take with you?

The first would be Kid Cudi, because he inspired me over and over again.  He has a great view on music and how it should be.  I really like the person he portrays himself to be.  The second would be Kanye West, because of his knowledge and talent.  Musically, I feel I could learn a lot from him while on the road.  And the third would be Travis Scott, because of his energy.  I think he and I would rage out on stage.  It would be awesome!

Any big projects in the works this year?

Yes, definitely!  I have my new single “Make It Happen” hitting every store online and a physical release with Amazon at the end of this month, and pre-release on the 25th.  It is going to be a huge hit!  I also have my new LP, Vessel Of Sacrifice, coming before the year is out.

CINEMA SUNDAY: Palette In Tokidoki-Land

Last week, Tokidoki and LeSportsac released their full length, short film, Palette In Tokidoki-Land, and let me be the first to tell you - it is so so so fun!  I get mega Takashi Murakami vibes from it… a huge compliment coming from me (or anyone for that matter)!  It’s the ultimate, kawaii-hippy-trippy trip.  Enjoy!

LIFE UPDATE

On the day of Joan Rivers' funeral, I went and visited her Hollywood star to leave a few things in her memory.  I left some flowers (fake of course!) and a turquoise cross scarf from Michaelwood that I really love.  It was really sad, but nice at the same time to see how much she was loved by so many people.

I have this weird tradition of taking Polaroids (or Instax, now!) at funeral grave sights, so I snapped a couple at Joan’s star.  Some people don’t get it, but to me, it’s the most beautiful part of someone’s death - seeing all the flowers and mementos which physically embody and beautifully portray the love felt for that person.   I feel like that is a really nice memory to hold on to, so I do.

This week, I’ve just been trying to catch up with myself and take care of all the things I let slide last week, and I’m FINALLY all caught up.  Tomorrow I’m going out for a night of fun, so things are finally starting to even back out and feel normal again.  I hope all of you are well and keeping cool this HOT September!

SNEAK PEEK: Chibiphotography

image

Last week, I promised to unveil ALL the details of the new book I am working on… actually the 1st book I have ever worked on, and here it is!  The book will be a coffee table-style art book entitled Chibiphotography, which will consist of photography I have taken from my personal art collection of figurines.  I know you guys must have been wondering whyyyyyyy I was buying up all these crazy playsets to display my art figurines in, and this is why!  I’m not actually reverting back to childhood and having playtime as I know some of you were seriously questioning, haha!

image

image

All of the amazing art figurines I have collected over the years will be the stars of the book - living in a little micro-cosm of my perfect world, which I have created for them.  I’m not sure how long the book will take to complete… maybe a few months, maybe a few years!  I really don’t know or care.  I just want it to be great, and I have no doubt that it will be.

Be sure to follow @MallOfMichael on Instagram for more previews of my photo journey along the way!

Since it’s #MusicMonday on my blog, I thought I’d show yall my newest musical instrument!  I recently purchased a theremin for a Tricky / Portishead cover song with Dorine Levy I’m going to be working on soon for my upcoming album!  I have had absolutely NO theremin experience in the past, so I thought I should start practicing before it’s studio time!    I’m sure I will have some ridiculous videos to post during the learning process… Wish me luck!

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Buni Milani

What 3 words would you use to describe your sound?

Soft. Sexy. High.

Where are you currently based out of?

Jersey City, NJ

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever experienced playing a live show?

Honestly, nothing crazy has happened yet, but I welcome the crazy. I welcome the crazy memories.

If you could go on a dream world tour with any 3 artists, who would you take with you?

I pray this comes true… I would take Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, and Katy Perry. Of course they make great music, but they have amazing live performances and I’m taking several notes.  It would be a dream if I got to work with any one of them.

Any big projects in the works this year?

Yes, I’m going to be working on an album as well as a documentary on my process.  It’ll be really cool and I think people will appreciate the work, as well as getting a small glimpse of my personal life.  In the mean time, my EP, “High”, is out now on iTunes… Check it out!

Late last night, I found out that one of my biggest career heroes, Joan Rivers, succumbed to her declining conditions at Mt. Sinai and passed away yesterday.  I am so very saddened by this news, as all of this happened so fast and was so unexpected.  Although she was in very poor condition since being admitted into the hospital, I wanted to believe that given Joan’s larger than life spirit, another hospital stint (of all things) wouldn’t keep her out of this world, but like all of us - she was just as fragile of a human being as we all are.
Joan made me want to do red carpet reporting.  If it weren’t for Joan, I never would have walked all the carpets and interviewed the amazing people that I have today.  She took all of the stiffness out of the red carpet, and made it fun.  She made me care about fashion.  She showed the human in celebrity and made those on-camera experiences more relatable.  It’s hard to believe that I will never hear a new Joan joke, or see her again on the red carpet, but she will live on in our laughs and through history as one of the greatest and most outrageous television hosts and comedians of all time.
I’ll be spinning her comedy album, What Becomes A Semi-Legend Most, all day at Chateau Shirley.  Stop by if you want to pay your respects.
Live. Love. Laugh.
