Hello New York!
In one week, my first official release party goes down in Harlem! Next Wednesday, April 10th at 9:00 pm; please mark your calendar. Ginny’s Supper Club is a wonderful venue. It’s downstairs from The Red Rooster.
Ginny’s Supper Club
310 Lenox Ave @125th
You should probably reserve a table and plan to have a nice meal. The chef is extraordinary. The staff members are each individually super sexy.
The place is special. I’ll be there singing love songs. This could be your best date night ever. Bring your “A” game. There will be plenty of eye and ear candy. Be ready for a super sexy night. You won’t go home alone 😉 promise.
Butter Fly Soul Records and Shae Moisture have prepared gift bags for you!
And if you don’t already have my album, or you only have the digital copy, we will have physicals there for you. So you will have SOMETHING to take home, fersher.
I keep thinking I’m in a dream. There are so many things to be thankful for. I had the BEST birthday weekend ever! Great show, great turn out, great energy, really great band, SO MUCH LAUGHING my voice is still hoarse. It had NOTHING to do with the unlimited Mimosas. It was the guy who was “twerking for Jesus” at the brunch spot. That’s all I’m saying!
I discovered a band and fell in love with them. THEN, the next day I met them and had two jam sessions with them! I mean, how serendipitous is that?? Hiatus Kayiote from Australia, you’re my new favorite.
Miss Erica Dee and I were adopted by the Fungineers! A crew of magical creatives, complete with Australian costume designers, gem shop owners, elven magicians, and so much more! We rocked the Bass Coast Fest in Squamish, B.C and it was definitely an intense experience. To top it off, it was my little sister Sam’s 20th b-day and my cousin Yvonne’s Bday too! I brought them up for a couple days each, playing Vancouver Pride in between. It was so much fun- I have never felt so free, and I even got to wear my favorite fantasy costumes. Way wilder than I have been before. I think you guys are in for a treat!
This next chapter is gonna be a whole new wilder, more colorful, more creative, Honey.
I even freestyled…MANY times! and I didn’t fuck up! (WOW. I can freestyle…kinda. haha!) You guys just wait.
Here are a few pics, hoping to give you a small glimpse of how amazing the stage (which was an 8 month long art installation project) looked, and some of the super creative flamboyant costumes, the pumpkin booties, and perky titties that were flying around. 😉 I had a good time, to um…sum it up! Next comes shambalah- Y’all ain’t ready!
“Flight of the Honey B”
Here are a couple shot of some of our performances at bass coast fest. This is Me, with Erica Dee, The Fungineers, Lafa Taylor, Russ Liquid and Dub FX. Very Amazing bunch! And look at that stage! OMG!
I am so excited to announce that my new mixtape, Clean Lust and Dirty Laundry, is finally out! This project was so much fun for me, and I met and worked with so many great individuals. I have also been on my Spontaneous Soul Sessions tour playingnew music from the tape and traveling around the mountains (reception is low, but the air is amazing).
The mixtape is available on BandCamp, and you can leave as little (or as much (-; ) as you’d like to donate for it. I have already recieved some phenomenal feedback from fans- love you guys!

This is my fuggn FAVORITE poet right now!!! Why does she describe me and all my friend to a T??? Why does she know me sooo well?
WILD CHILD WOMEN- VANESSA HIDARY 2010
For all you Crazy, Loud, Eccentric, Fiery, Passionate, Romantic, Sex loving, Stubborn, Angelic, Smart, Talented, Outlandish, Pulling your Fuckin’ hair out, Wild Child Artist women out there-
This is for you.
I am you.
You are me.
We are fire.
We are high heels and hoodies
We are belly laughs and risk
We are classy yet silly
We are Wild.
Not every guy is for us
We attract ones who are initially enthralled by our spice
But then become suddenly scared of our prickle
We are not perfect and in case anyone didn’t know..
We Know This.
Sometimes our cup runneth over with passion,
Sometimes we use our hands in overly loud gestures from whatever culture we hail,
But unfortunately Dear Lovers,
We cannot be spiced to your particular tongue.
You must swallow us whole.
We know we confuse you.
One moment we exude sass,
The next we purr with sweet kisses.
Part playful girl- part wise woman,
Moneymakers, vision masters,
Mothers love us, polite and smart,
Your boys think we’re mad cool,
We can hold a conversation with Anyone, Anywhere,
We got it covered.
Men cant believe G-d created women this diverse,
So they suspect it’s a trap.
They turn us upside down and shake us,
Trying to see if a clue will fall from our beautiful mouths.
Dumbfounded many crawl away.
This pains us deeply.
We feel pain and joy like knife strokes on bellies,
But we must let them walk.
They will never forget us,
But they can’t hang with us.
We end up with the men that are smart enough to know
They found the winning ticket,
And they are cashing in quick,
They are never the men we pictured ourselves with.
Their strength is Ninja-like,
Chill, familiar, Secure,
Like summertime stoops.
In the past we always fell for dark alleyways.
But even you dear ticket holder,
Might need a guide to our species habits,
We are fiercely loyal.
Sometimes to a fault.
Hands will be bit, if you mess with our kin or our man.
We argue with our girlfriends then make up with them crying.
We all have at least one crazy friend in our clan that we’ve known forever
That might crash on our couch for a night.
Ok… Maybe a week.
They are family.
They come with the package.
Some nights just out of nowhere we’ll bust out crying,
And you’ll say-
“What the hell happened-you were fine a minute ago!”
And we’ll say, “I dunno, -I just need to fuckin’ cry ok!”
We just need you to be there.
Then we’ll go sing dance, paint or write
And fuck you like you never knew what hit you.
We think that’s fair exchange for a minor flip out.
Just cause we are Divas doesn’t mean we aren’t old fashioned and domestic,
Our strength doesn’t excuse you from chivalry, and Valentines Day.
We are girly, feminine, hopeless romantics.
We want doors opened
We cook and clean- if we feel its deserved
Remember we are doers, not followers.
We want to be claimed but not owned.
We know our unruly asses sometimes need to be lassoed in
Let us shine.
Let others enjoy a glimpse,
Knowing we go home
Only with you.
We want you.
Our capacity to socialize is nothing you’ve ever seen the likes of,
Don’t be alarmed by our tolerance to liquor, coffee, smoking, food.
We are made of some other shit.
We carry grown ass men out of bars
And kick amateur girls to the curb.
Be assured the mature wild child has mentally mastered moderation
But if you get drunky girl one night don’t be surprised.
Sometimes we slip.
That’s all for now,
We appreciate your patience and passion.
We know its complicated but you seem like a quick study
My wild, crazy, unruly, artsy, fiery, sweet, smart, talented sisters,
I am you. You are Me.
We are not for everyone
But We Live.
