When these three friends got together, their Music turned into MAGIC. The collaboration of their musical talents, lead them to this AWESOMEVIDEO. And a new Awareness of how just a THOUGHT, can change Things in, The World Of Music. That Art and Passion comes from Within the Human Soul.
And with the Magic of the Internet this was possible.
This is how Matthew Jordan stated the video came about;
“Just finished another brand-new collab video – and this one was especially fun to put together!
Together, the three of us covered an absolute CLASSIC – “The Longest Time” by Billy Joel. And I even got a little dressed up for this one. Let me know what you think of the fedora… could be a new look for me! Haha 😉
This was another production made possible by the magic of the internet. I’m in California, Chris is in Arizona and Matt B. is in Nashville. Yet here we all are, on the same screen… and we never even set foot in the same room while recording. Isn’t technology awesome? LOL.”
As most of you know from visiting my blog site a few weeks ago. I featured Big City Indians as a group up for a few different nominations by NAMA (Native American Music Awards). Well they did win as “GROUP OF THE YEAR”. AWESOME!!!! The Album was “Tuma”.
They are truly AN EPIC GROUP, but they do not need my voice to talk about them, their music speaks for itself. I hi-lighted just a small note on the events that night below. Many of you visited my blog and voted. I along with Big City Indians would like to THANK YOU for your support and do visit their youtube channel & website to listen to and enjoy their music.You will be able to purchase their music as well. But do visit these sites, I feel you will enjoy their sound and different take on music over the years. Again, Thanks to all of YOU and PLEASE ENJOY & VISIT the LINKS BELOW:

PLEASE READ THEIR BAND BIO, you will understand why I feel they are An Epic Group!!!

Big City Indians started in 1997 with an exceptional intention: They perfected a unique musical hybrid that merged contemporary rock music, roots, pop and folk with an earthy, Native American flavor. These endeavors resulted in a rock band producing soulful songs and focusing on World Music
The Drama on stage was from years of knowing that her dreams, passions and hard work would one day bring her here.
Live on stage with the energy of a Broadway Play, RainRaphael and her Awesome DanceTeam brought everyone to their feet. Shouting her name as the Blue lights turned up to bright lights, showing an energetic group. Their moves were so well choreographed you just knew you were on Broadway, but we were in TheBijouTheater in Bridgeport, CT.
Starting as I did was to let you know how unknown talent can work so hard to move up the ladder of success. Unless someone with a large money backing get to know them, or a producer of well known status see or hear them their talent goes totally unnoticed. Then sometimes when they do find them, they stifle their talent. They are not who they were trying to be before the money and people not knowing what’s in their Hearts are about. I totally understand you have no time to baby-sit their talent. But for them to stay down because they didn’t fall into that category of century old rules. Should not allow talent like Rain and all the other talents that I have featured to go unnoticed.
She is well known, unlike others I have featured. But she had to pay her dues as well. I can not go into any length of her life on a blog. She does and she does it well on her website which you should visit and learn about this Amazingly talented young lady.
Talking about her does not give you the energy that she gives when she sings. Ballads as well as upbeat rap. She even gave us a sneak peek of An Awesome Video, and songs from her newly released album “LadyBug “. She has Talent that should not be Harness!!!
Please visit her website and social media sites and she will fill in the blanks and then some. The link below shows her, Acclaim,Bio, Calender,Audio,Photos,Tech,Video and contact information, all on one site.
