SKYY HIGH SUNDAYS: In the studio with Memo Skyy, Riddlez and Kira Fulks

Sundays in the studio are special. The church across the street is poppin’ and there’s a feeling of calm in the area. Cool energies plus good vibes equals art that’s SKYY HIGH! That’s exactly what happened this past Sunday at The OC Recording Company! Creative juices were flowin’. Yakira Shimoni Fulks was in her art studio photographing new watercolors for her website https:/kirasart.com. Meanwhile, Memo Skyy, Riddlez and I were recording, mixing and mastering their new single “What Would You Do” — a record that could very well be the 2018 song of the summer! The upbeat, poppy, retro feel and catchy melodies provide a killer contrast with Memo’s powerful vocals and Riddlez edgy rap. It’s a feel good love song with substance and a full bodied music flava — be on the the lookout! If you asked asked me “What Would You Do — on a Sunday”, I’d say there’s no place I’d rather be! -Asaf Fulks

Persistence Pays: From OC Recording to The Voice – Jamella Perkins is killin’ it!

Jamella Perkins and Asaf Fulks circa de 2006 — The early OC Recording days!

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.”

-Calvin Coolidge, 30th US President

Seems like yesterday that 9 year old Jamella Marie Perkins came into The OC Recording Company with her Mom Lisa Marie to record her first song in our studio. It was evident way back then that Jamella had a powerful voice, talent and she knew exactly what she was — a star! This drive, charisma and ability matched with her Mom’s love and determination to help her get there was a music industry explosion bound to go off! Throughout the years we recorded, mixed and mastered many records for Jamella. She continued to develop her vocals, become a beautiful woman and her drive never wavered — neither did her Mom’s belief in her. She recorded countless covers better than the originals and performed all over the place including many seasons at the Orange County fair. There were sessions that were a struggle. Growing pains and life’s difficulties settling in. Many artists would have thrown in the towel or not given 110%, but this did not stop Jamella. And today it’s evident that PERSISTENCE PAYS and Jamella’s killin’ it!

After months of grueling auditions, Jamella was selected for this season of The Voice out of 44,000 applicants! In her blind audition, she performed Dive by Ed Sheeran and was selected by Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson — she chose Team Kelly. She won her first battle and has been featured on several NBC Behind the Voice segments. Read her interview on https://www.mjsbigblog.com/the-voice-14-johnny-bliss-christiana-danielle-jamai-and-more-interviews.htm



We super proud of Jamella and inspired by her accomplishments. Make sure to tune in and support our homegrown Orange County homegirl #teamjamella #teamkelly — let’s get it!!!

Lyrics

Damn, it was all gone in an instant
As seeds grow leaves fall in the distance
been on a mission
times change but you stayed the same
stuck in your ways, resistance

Vision is blurred, mind tight shut
live n’ you learn, when times get toughgive n’ get burned had enough
we tried now I see that you‘re not the one

Cuz you just make up lies
stay wastin’ time
so face the signs that we breakin’ ties

Cuz baby there’s…

Consequences
don’t play me there’s Consequences
a reaction for every action
you were actin’ now who’s laughin’

Cuz baby there’s Consequences
don’t play me there’s Consequences
you could lead someone to wisdom
but you can’t make ‘em listen

We’re done

Winds blow through the trees at night
desert air’s warm n’ the stars shine bright
I know that you woulda liked to be by my side
butcha not

So that‘s a different story
since we stopped
things have been different for me now I’m hot
and you actin’ different towards me
I know what this about

But you can‘t take back the way you acted
or say we’ll get past it
look there’s already damage

Don’t look back
at what we had
it’s gone
and it ain’t comin’ back
cuz what you did
was so wrong
