Popichil`O – Fallin
Genre : HipHop
Born and raised in Chicago, Popichil`O classic hip hop infused with R&B {Music Is Life So Breathe With Me} I am an artist in every sense of the word and have been my entire life. I am a rapper, song writer, video director, producer and actor which has all provided me with an outlet at important times in my life. I began writing poetry at a young age which eventually progressed into writing actual songs as a way to express myself creatively. It became a necessary outlet in order for me to understand and process certain thoughts and emotions I was feeling or going threw at any given time in my life. The good, bad and the ugly. It became therapeutic in a sense. Music allowed me to lose myself and find myself at the sametime. I love music its a passion of mine and it inspires me everyday. Music is how emotions sound and you can hear it all around. I believe you have to manifest your ideas and have a passion for what you do to be “successful” even if no one else believes in you. Your value doesn’t decrease based on Someone’s inability to see your worth. Know Your Worth.. I am currently working on my first solo album which is untitled at the moment. I have a few more songs to record and I’ll be done. I’m really excited about this upcoming project its been along time coming. I Appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to Listen. Like, Share or Comment on my music. [Follow Your Dreams It Is What It Seems] *This Is Rhythmatic Soul Where The Mind Is In Control* Value every moment of your life. Live, Love, Laugh and Appreciate Your Past. No one is promised Another Day or Night. So enjoy Your Life before you take that Fight. Music gave me a purpose to live when I couldn’t find any. It gave me worth when I felt worthless🙌 https://soundcloud.com/reallyfe-muzic/falling-rev2

My music is…
real life, real thoughts, real emotions just real

Weston Simonis – Party Life!
Weston Simonis is a music artist from La Grande Oregon.  A pop/rock artist making his way around the world on social media and radio.  His last music video Yoga Pants has got quite the reaction on many radio station and social media.  Weston Simonis is also the an award winning artist of 2016 for his album Moments of Intoxication at the International Publisher Awards for the best Indie Alternative Rock album of the year.  After many years of performing and writing music Weston Simonis has now won his first music award and throwing this song call Party Life! out there because to remind everyone about the good times.  This is Weston Simonis first Pop/ Hip Hop/ Rock song.  What Jacob Aiden from Jamsphere Magazine has to say about Weston Simonis. “For those who’re still unfamiliar with Weston Simonis and his wide range of musical styles, this is a very special talent. A native of the Grande Ronde Valley, Weston is difficult to pin down to one or two genres. Some might say he’s all over the place. I say he has the special ability to play Blues, Rock, Funk, Metal, Punk and any progressive thinking crossover music at will. Listening to his award winning album “Moments Of Intoxication” has reminded me that there was a time when you could hear all types of artists on the same radio station. Now it seems every station is so specific to a particular genre. Weston seems to break these musical label walls down and just play from the heart and soul. There is a full range of styles on this album that could cater to many different audiences”.
