Being a musician can be an isolating experience sometimes. It can be easy to think that the music industry is an easy place to work when you see all the glitz and glam.
The reality is that we all get lonely sometimes and that's one of the reasons why we are so passionate about making a difference in our communities. There is support and there is help available.

Day 4: Kali Uchis-Isolation🎄🎄🎄🎄 💙💙💙💙One of 2018’s most critically acclaimed albums. Though Kali Uchis is no newcomer, her breakout appearance came through her work with artists like Tyler the Creator and Snoop Dogg in recent years. But the release of her debut LP ‘Isolation’ proved her ability to command her own audience.
Isolation is a sultry, smooth RnB record, both mature and infectious and as many of this years best records have done, it pulls inspiration from a plethora of other genres to bend and push the limits of the RnB/pop crossover. There are overtones of mid 2000s Postal Service-esque indie-pop on ‘In My Dreams’, 70s funk-infused riffs on ‘After the Storm’ and a reggaeton influence on the Spanish number ‘Nuestro Planeta (feat. Reckon)’. I’ve needed some songs by powerful women to lament to this year (I love God is a Woman okay but sometimes I just need to mope) and Kali Uchis has fulfilled that need with her crooning about past loves, mistakes and knowing better. ‘ATS’ explores her confidence in the tenacity of spirit through hard times whilst in the Winehouse-inspired closing track ‘Killer’, she softly sings about acknowledging a lover’s transgressions and her ability to know better. She dips in and out of soulful introspection and observations of the outside world. She exudes confidence on and then pulls back to her vulnerable side on ‘Feel like a Fool’. ‘Now you should know better/ But I still run all my errands in your sweater’. Isolation is not a lyrical masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination and there isn’t really a strong sense of imagery on the album. However, it is well crafted, balanced and catered to Uchis’ strengths as a performer and artist. Her choice of features is brilliant and her frequent collaborations are evidence of her talent in an industry that is constantly demanding versatility. Kali Uchis, with a little help from her friends, shines on Isolation.
A continuation from my last post:
If you guys ever want to talk to me, weather you want to rant or talk about how much we love Kali, I’m here 😜💓 I don’t want to just b sum chick that runs a kali fan accounts, and I consider you all my friends so don’t hesitate to talk to me <3 I care about you all 💞
Writing poetry in the middle of writing music. The mind is such a weird map of places trying to exist in the same surfaces of being. First lines:
What are border crossings
When you can't even cross mine,
Understanding those disappointments,
Zoning demilitarized patches of land
Dry and parched within the depths of my soul?
If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery - isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.

This is really my life huh? This is what I decide to do? Everything I do is a failure and meaningless. I am a waste of fucking space. I was born to be nothing... To never have any quality or substance to offer. I'm the most unimpressive piece of shit. I hope I die a slow horrible death.
Anyways, have a lovely day.
