Organizing for Action

There are only a few days left to get registered in New York for the midterms.

And even if you’re 99.9% sure you’re ready to go … it can’t hurt to take two minutes, and confirm your registration is up-to-date at the correct address.

Check your status in New York by clicking here.

Sula, in case you needed a reminder of what’s at stake for New Yorkers on November 6:

We can replace a Republican-controlled House that handed the wealthiest 1% of New Yorkers a tax break of $29,890 each, and voted for a bill that would have stripped health care from 1,227,100 New York residents.

We’re going to make it happen. But we can’t make this progress unless ourselves, our friends, and our neighbors actually get to the polls and VOTE.

It starts with getting registered.

If you’ve taken care of it, forward this to at least 5 friends or family members in New York, and make sure they’re ready to go, too.


We are through the end of summer / back to school crush and there's a nice lull between now and the holiday crazy!
It's a perfect time to release new music...  BUT WAIT!
Are you REALLY prepared for your next release?

One of the most brilliant people I know has teamed up with me to teach you every step of your next release in LAB 3!


Screen Shot 2018-10-02 at 3.00.23 PM


Did you know you need to have a plan for all of these things BEFORE you release:
  • Spotify (presave & day of plan to shock the algorithm!)
  • SoundCloud (yes you need this for very different reasons than Spotify)
  • Presale (you need to make at least SOME money from your release, yes?)
  • Social media engagement
  • Website updates
  • Email announcement ready
  • PR strategy
  • A full day of launch plan - We have a check sheet that has over 40 individual actions to take on the DAY OF RELEASE!
In this 3 week master class Suz aka The Rock/Star advocate teams up with me to walk you through everything you need to do to make your next single / EP or Album release receive the MAXIMUM impact it can
Suz has years of working with both major label and indie artists in her 15 year career and she understands that releasing music is not just about the check lists and steps (they are vital) but, what is even MORE vital is being in the right mindset to make the launch a success!
Suz is a mindset coach and getting your head in the right place to plan and execute is AS IMPORTANT as all the steps.
Read more here.
And join us in the LAB.  And, if you can't make the live streams the classes are fully recorded and you can join in at

What is the essence of a city that is constantly changing? In the months surrounding Carnival, Rio de Janeiro pulses with sound, color, and fluidity. Queer Brazilian icon Luana Muniz leads us through her stream of consciousness—from underground dance parties to the deep Brazilian forest to local political uprisings—into the very heart of Rio during Carnival.

Jacob Pick Bittencourt - (known as Jacob do Bandolin)

      About Jacob do Bandolim     

Jacob do Bandolim born Jacob Pick Bittencourt (February 14, 1918 – August 13, 1969) was a Brazilian composer and musician. Born to a Brazilian-Jewish mother and a gentile father in Rio de Janeiro, his stage name means "Mandolin Jacob", referring to his instrument he played. A perfectionist, Jacob was able to achieve with his band Época de Ouro the highest levels of quality. Jacob hated the stereotype of the "disheveled, drunk folk musician" and required commitment and impeccable dress from his musicians who, like himself, all held "day jobs." Jacob worked as a pharmacist, insurance salesman, street vendor, and finally notary public, to support himself while also working "full time" as a musician. In addition to his virtuoso playing, he is famous for his many choro compositions, more than 103 tunes, which range from the lyrical melodies of "Noites Cariocas" ("Carioca Nights"), Receita de Samba and "Dôce de Coco" to the aggressively jazzy "Assanhado", which is reminiscent of bebop. He also researched and attempted to preserve the older choro tradition, as well as that of other Brazilian music styles. 
About Choro
Brazilian Choro has roots jazz, and is considered Brazil’s first “urban pop” music. There are over 30 different types of rhythms in Brazilian Music. By presenting the diversity of our rhythms, we hope to encourage diverse musicians, music students, adults, and children to engage in creating music with a dynamic communicative style that is energetic, fun, creative, and very inspiring!
The festival first occurred in August 2015, and it was a great success. Due to this positive reception, we will continue with an annual presentation. The event will provide an opportunity for everyone to learn about one of the oldest Brazilian musical genres, the Choro and the Brazilian Jazz.

October Playlist online Mid-October 

Desde Nueva York, con un ojo puesto en la vanguardia y los oídos conectados con la tradición, aterriza un nuevo espacio en Radio Gladys Palmera. Un programa que viene a cumplir un sueño anhelado durante años: tener un conexión directa y sin escalas con las nuevas novedades discográficas que se están produciendo en Brasil. A los mandos del vuelo, Béco Dranoff, un experimentado piloto que hará del viaje, una travesía en clase VIP. Béco nació en Sao Paulo pero vive desde hace años en Nueva York, donde ha desarrollado una labor de activista cultural de la nueva escena musical brasileña. Entre su nómina de méritos, despunta el haber despegado la carrera de la gran Bebel Gilberto o haber llegado a puerto a decenas de artistas emergentes. 

Lo que no es Brazilab:

Brazilab no es un espacio de coworking destinado a emprendedores brasileños.
Brazilab no es un laboratorio farmacéutico de Sao Paulo.

Lo que sí es Brazilab:

Brazilab es una factoría que selecciona las últimas novedades discográficas que se están produciendo en el gigante sudamericano.
Brazilab es un espacio diseñado por uno de los productores más cool y elegantes de la nueva escena brasileña
