    EP38: Life Vein (Song Review) w/ Khalil The Goat

    EP38: Life Vein (Song Review) w/ Khalil The Goat

    In Episode 38 of Elevated Conversations, I interviewed my dear friend, Khalil Roquemore, also known by his artist name, Khalil The Goat.

    In August 2021, Khalil and I released an interfaith collaboration titled "Life Vein", which is about our soul's nearness to God.

    In 50:16 of The Quran, it states: "We verily created man and We know what his soul whispereth to him, and We are nearer to him than his jugular vein."

    While in the Baha'i Writings, Bahá’u’lláh states: "This most great, this fathomless and surging Ocean is near, astonishingly near, unto you. Behold it is closer to you than your life-vein!"

    Moved by these pieces of scripture, Khalil and I came together to create this song in hopes of inspiring others to tap into their connection with the Almighty.
    In the interview, we explored Khalil's journey in life, how we met, the inspiration behind the new song, and a bunch of other elevated themes!

    EP37: Gratitude (Song Review) w/ Djaykams

    In Episode 37 of Elevated Conversations, I interviewed the amazingly talented artist Djaykams about our recently released collaboration, "Gratitude".
    Djaykams and I connected a few months back when he came across one of my songs and reached out. We are both members of the Baha'i Faith, both love making music, and both share the name Nabil (it's my middle name)!

    He recently invited me to contribute a rap verse to his new song, and I'm so honored because the track turned out amazing!
    In the interview, we explored Djaykams journey as an artist, how we met, the inspiration behind the new song, and a bunch of other elevated themes!

    EP36: The Master's Piece (Album Review) w/ Jose' Villanueva Jr.

    EP36: The Master's Piece (Album Review) w/ Jose' Villanueva Jr.

    In Episode 36 of Elevated Conversations, I interviewed my fellow Baha'i-inspired hip hop artist Jose' Villanueva Jr. about his latest album "The Master's Piece".
    Jose' and I connected a few years back after he embraced the Baha'i Faith and was seeking out Baha'i inspired hip hop music, and discovered my content. He invited me to be featured on the closing track of his new album, which includes myself and artist, Whyy Ohh. The song is called "Fit Together".
    In the interview, we explored Jose's journey as a Baha'i, the inspiration behind his album, his creative process as an artist, and a bunch of other elevated themes!
    The album was created during a time of much spiritual growth and exploration, which can be heard and felt through the lyrics! It was an awesome interview!

    EP35: Free (Song Review) w/ my album art designer, Luna

    EP35: Free (Song Review) w/ my album art designer, Luna

    In the 8th and final episode of the "Created Noble Series" of Elevated Conversations (episode 35, overall), I bring on the incredible album art designer! His name is Brian Luna (most commonly referred to as "Luna"), and he is an amazing artist and human being!

    In this episode, we highlight track 8 of the Created Noble album, titled "Free".  Free is a feel good song about inner peace and spiritual freedom and aims to bring good vibes to the soul.

    It was the perfect episode to bring on Luna, as he is someone who has always given me nothing but positive, friendly, all around good vibes. Luna and I had recently reconnected, and it happened to be at a time when I was struggling to find someone to commission for the cover art of my album, so he was truly a God send!

    In addition to the cover art of the album, Luna also designed the t-shirt and sticker designs!

    In the interview, we discuss how Luna got into the arts, some of his artistic aspirations, what it was like designing this particular piece of art, and of course what it means to be created noble! Luna is an awesome human being, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy this interview!

    The "Created Noble Series" of the Elevated Conversations podcast goes through my latest album, track by track,  bringing on guests who made a significant contribution to the project creatively or inspirationally.

    EP34: Ms. Carry (Song Review) w/ my therapist, Katrin Modabber

    EP34: Ms. Carry (Song Review) w/ my therapist, Katrin Modabber

    In episode 7 of the "Created Noble Series" of Elevated Conversations (episode 34, overall). I bring on a very special guest: my marriage counselor! Also a dear friend of mine, Katrin Modabber, was incredibly helpful to my wife Mallory and me in the early years of our marriage.

    Katrin was also invaluable in assisting my wife and I with processing the deeply emotional experiences of miscarriage. There were a few key insights, particularly designating a name to the miscarried children, that were so helpful to us in making peace with the grief of losing a precious soul before they could be born into this world.

    The "Created Noble" album centers on my experiences as a father,  most notably centering on my first born son, Noble.  However, in the process of writing the album, my wife Mallory and I experienced 2 miscarriages (1 before Noble, and 1 after). I wrote Ms. Carry shortly after the 2nd miscarriage. Music and writing has been a powerful way to channel my emotions, and writing the song was very therapeutic for me.

    With that said,  I felt it was seemly to bring Katrin on as the featured guest for this particular episode. We discuss how we met, what brought her to Phoenix in the first place, how she got into counseling, her journey in the Baha’i Faith, and unpack the emotional and spiritual significance of miscarriage, a topic that is not often discussed very openly.

    I hope you find find the interview insightful and elevating in nature!

    EP33: S.O.S (Song Review) w/ featured artist, Ayana

    EP33: S.O.S (Song Review) w/ featured artist, Ayana

    In episode 6 of the "Created Noble Series" of Elevated Conversations (episode 33, overall), I bring on the amazingly talented singer, Ayana, to discuss our soul-stirring collaboration, "S.O.S", the 6th track of the Created Noble album.

    "S.O.S"  is a song about humanity wandering in darkness searching for light. Ayana and I dive into this concept, as well as discuss her journey as an artist, how we met and created this song together, and what it means to be created noble!

    It was a super fun, enlightening, elevated conversation!

The podcast world needs more of this

Everything I ever thought of my favorite sport, basketball, from a spiritual perspective, Colby described in such an eloquent, uplifting and insightful way. Each episode is a MUST listen!

Slam Dunk!

I enjoyed the episode from the tip-off to the final buzzer. It was packed with insights between sports and spiritual values.

Can’t wait to hear more!

A beautiful blend and application of spiritual and basketball concepts. I love learning about basketball history too. Although basketball isn’t an important part of my life; I’m looking forward to mindfully and reflectively doing my sports. Keep it up!

Oh and I’m sure you’ll get there, but more basketball history please!
