    What Rihanna Taught me about Confidence

    What Rihanna Taught me about Confidence

    Last series, I looked at the careers of some of the most successful female artists of all time, breaking down their journeys to learn how they got to where they got to, what career and life lessons we could pull from them and how they experienced their success, verses how we experienced it as onlookers.
    I believe that Hip hop is about overcoming adversity and reggae is finding peace in conflict and so much of our conflict as human beings is internal. This season I want to look at the lives of the powerful female creators, focusing on a particular quality which they embody to me and which can have a positive impact on all of our lives if we bring it into our own lives a bit more.
    For this first episode I’m looking at possibly my favourite artist of all time. Someone I love both for her versatility as an artist but also for what she represents as a woman. One of the greatest popstars, one of the wealthiest women in the world and one of the baddest. 
    This is an episode in the confidence of Rihanna.

    Songwriting, and Navigating the Music Industry While Growing Up. An Interview with Artist and Songwriter RuthAnne.

    Songwriting, and Navigating the Music Industry While Growing Up. An Interview with Artist and Songwriter RuthAnne.

    It was RuthAnne’s powerful vocals which first caught the attention of a manager when she was a teenager living in Ireland. She’d created a demo tape herself and with undeniable talent, was offered the opportunity to go to Los Angeles and begin working towards a career as a musician. In one of her first ever writing sessions, she ended up writing ‘Too lIttle Too Late’, the platinum selling single which would go on to be released by Jojo. Having unexpectedly found this success as a song-writer, RuthAnne went on to write music for One Direction, Bebe Rexha, and Britney Spears, to name a few. As an artist she’s found her own lane and chats to about her upcoming EP and album, her ideal creative environment, and building the right room.

    What MC Lyte Taught Me About Being First

    What MC Lyte Taught Me About Being First

    Hello and welcome to Hot Girls with Lex On The Decks. This is the show where we explore the mechanics of the music industry, through intimate conversations on creativity and biography episodes exploring the lives of iconic artists. 
     
    This week Lex takes it back to the early 90s to look at the career of MC Lyte. One of the first major selling rap MCs, Lyte was directional and hungry. There was no-one for Lyte to mimic, she had to define the pattern.
    This is how she did it.
