Artists are doing it for themselves – being both aritists and entrepreneur and this group of 21 artists both musicians and spoken word, is sponsoring their second annual festival title “Wylin on the Island.” Even though it was a coolish day, people came out to support this effort.
“That’s exactly the whole purpose . . . to create our own opportunities and not to rely on other people to make our wishes and fortune come true,” Leilani said.
Musician Brendan Philip, who describes his style as “future soul,” puts it more succinctly.
“We were all trying to find a way to plug into the scene,” said Philip.
Even the group’s name is a blend of blithe artistic spirit and sound business judgment.
Leilani consulted an online psychic who told her that her future holds 88 days of fortune, when she would “meet all the right people.” The email ended with an offer to divulge those days for an inconsiderable amount of money.
“I thought, ‘I don’t want to pay . . . but actually, I like that name, 88 Days of Fortune,’” Leilani recalled.
These are the founding members of 88 Days of Fortune
Checking Maiko Watson’s you tube video from her album “Sweet Vibrations”
Maiko Watson’s efforts have paid off with her solo recording. Sweet Vibration, Watson’s first solo production won the Urban Recording of the year this past weekend at the Western Canada Music Award held recently in Vancouver, British Columbia. Watson is one of five Manitobans to bring home awards including Grand Analog and Doc Walker.
I am cheering fort Maiko Watson and I invite you to. This former member of Sugar Jones has done it all herself. This Album is just the beginning of what’s the come.
Watson is more confident that ever. Having wrapped up two successful Rainbow Stage performances in Rent and Joseph Technicolour Coat, she is back to working on new songs and attending to her life’s passion which is creating music. Goodluck lady, we here in the Peg hope you bring home the trophy.
You’ll be in for a treat
