Where did the time go?”~ Hailey Simone

Phatbrane reminds me of Thelonious Monk.
They’re both kind of crazy and they both have a similar approach to music.
The same way Monk set the boundaries for be-bop, Phatbrane is re-setting the boundaries of lo-fi.
The sounds he’s been coming up with for “The Lo-fi Theory – Vol. 1”, dropping April 16, 2021 (PV2), would definitely have Thelonius Monk dancing around his piano.
Phatbrane is raising the bar and pushing the envelope. As the “The Lofi Theory” gains a buzz the expectations will increase.
Meanwhile, we get a new single, “Thoughts”, dropping January 15, 2021(PV2).
Hailey Simone haileysimone.xyz reminds me of Joni Mitchell.
When Joni arrived on the scene she had a beautiful voice, an undeniable musical talent and she also had something relevant to say. Hailey is of that same ilk.
Both Joni and Hailey have impeccable melody and lyric creation skills and both are perfectionist.
Hailey is able to communicate her feelings to the listener as sincerely as if she were pouring out her feelings and beliefs to an analyst. She has the lyrical power to make her listeners feel as if they’ve known her for years, while her voice and production skills are simply astonishing.
Hailey has been working on her album, “On The Heights”, dropping May 2021 (PV2) and she’s also been involved in production for other artists.
Yesterday I got a frantic text from her, “Send me the logic file ASAP! We must delay the release.” Apparently, she’d been listening to her master tracks and wasn’t quite satisfied with something.
Nevertheless, she will be dropping a single, “Maladaptive Daydreams”, January 15, 2021 (PV2).

I’m up… Eating a leftover bluefin tuna steak and mac n cheese with a light drizzle of truffle oil.
I just came to the same realization that most moderately cognitive and semi-conscience humans should eventually come to.
That realization is: Something is happening and we don’t know what it is.
Anyway, I been up since 5AM.. Friday morning…so…I digress.
The initial offering for PV2, “The Tester EP”, by Phatbrane (catalog #1001), has been completed and I anticipate its release in mid-December 2020.
It involved a lot of sacrifice on behalf of the entire crew. Hailey Simone voluntarily pushed back the release of her debut PV2 single, “Maladaptive Daydreams”, to ensure that Phatbrane had his promo and marketing in place.
FINALLY, something is happening and we know what it is!
PV2 plans to release albums from Phatbrane (The Lo-fi Theory), Hailey Simone (On The Heights) and yours truly (Something Is Happening and You Don’t Know What It Is) in 2021. We’re currently negotiating to sign Savior Kash and we’re pleased with the progress.
Recently I told Phatbrane, This is Def Jam 1986. I’m Russell, Hailey is Rick and he’s LL. The Tester is I Need A Beat.
“There’s no glo-glory, for this story-story
It-it rock-rock in any territory-tory!”
