Alfredo Grey - Long Lost Life (First time performing Song Live)
I performed Long Lost Life for the first time ever at the Echoes of Love suicide prevention fundraiser event. It was the first time I was on stage without my band in a little over a year and it was the first time I used my H1 Harmony VoiceTone. -Grey
My last Mixtape: Grey Clouds was an experiment. I wanted to make Hip Hop music in a style that I could still call my own. I was talking about different things. I was trying to prove something. I was making music to compete with others.
Im not saying Im not proud of my work or that I don’t believe the Music I did wasn’t good. Im just saying some of it felt forced. When that happens, a lot of the creativity is taken away. Songs that come from pure emotion like Blame Game, Love, Hold on (Freestyle) and Soundtrack to my Grey Life really stand out because its almost a conversation between me and you (even though its one sided). Thank you to everyone who heard and downloaded the Mixtape. The numbers were amazing and a little overwhelming.
My upcoming EP is going to, in a sense, go back to me making the music that I want to make. That ambient, real, melodic, dark and somewhat lonely music. Im not going to force anything.
Through a blogger on Twitter (DeadlyMusic), I was introduced and became friends with this young NY Producer/Musician, Holms. I shared some ideas with him and he agreed to help produce my upcoming EP with his unique sound. Over the weekend, I got a sample of what the new (Old) sound is going to sound like and I can say without a doubt that this upcoming EP is going to help bring change.
Alfredo Grey - Blame Game (Live Acoustic Freestyle/Story)
Alfredo Grey & The Archives live at MIST Harlem.
I’ll admit my singing that night was off and there’s nothing I can do about that, it’s in the past. I wish I could redo the entire set and give you a better performance but I have to live with this.
I will say that for the first time I was actually nervous to perform. That set was our first acoustic set and I felt very unprepared but I still wanted to be real and give everyone there a good reason for coming.
Overall It was a really special night and I truly do appreciate from the bottom of my heart everyone who came down and supported me. I got emotional at the end because Im just a guy trying to be as real as I can be with my art and it makes me feel incredible that people actually take time out of their day for me. Im just a Nobody and you guys make me feel like a somebody.
I can never repay anyone back for that BUT i will always try to be there for you as you have been there for me.
Thank you to all my friends and family and girlfriend and band and fans and supporters. I promise to work more on my art and give you guys the best product that I can.
