I had the pleasure of presenting a bit of my professional history, my outlook on music, and a lot of the new album with the folks at TED last month. Extra special thanks to the crew at TEDxNYIT for including myself and the vocalists from the album in this presentation! I hope everyone enjoys watching the talk / performance as much as Dani Mari, Bajah, TinaKristina, Vanessa Beatriz and I enjoyed presenting our music! Although I didn’t know what exactly I was going to say during the speaking portion of the presentation that morning (I had full on bronchitis [can you tell?] and was prepping to embark upon the record’s promo tour the next day), I guess I spoke enough about Bambaataa’s influence to warrant his name as the de facto title for my segment. Peace and blessings to all my Zulu brothers and sisters & in the grand cosmos of TED “ice bucket” challenges, I now nominate M.C. K~Swift to give a talk of his very own…

It’s an honor and a pleasure to know that Nic Harcourt selected “Midnight in Paris” from Bedstuyle as one of his picks. Sometimes we roll the dice not knowing what we are gambling for. Sometimes we reach the ears of those we know and love unknowingly…
