Hey y’all!! Thanks for your continued support…it’s greatly appreciated…much love to each & every one of you from my family & I xxx
So…today marks the release of my debut album ‘Vibrations’!! 🙂 Feeling really good today!
This album from QueenBrit comes directly from a drastic turning point in her life. A time when in utter darkness, she was searching for her light…
“This album was the exact outlet of expression that I needed. It began within almost immediate effect of my arrival in Spain. ’Vibrations’ allowed me to channel every last measure of emotion that I was feeling, into my music…from the drums through to the vocals. Of course, I often experienced ‘those’ days when I was fighting self-doubt all day long…equally, I experienced days of immense joy at my accomplishment.
With songs like ‘Fast Food’ & ‘Cosmetics’ I was able to look at myself objectively & entirely embrace my flaws…whilst songs like ‘No Other Choice’, ‘When The Snow Settles’ & ‘Push It’ are songs that are intended to motivate. Kinda like when you talk to yourself!
Deep down, I’m a sucker for love, so naturally in ‘Before I Go’, ‘Vibrations’, ‘Jurzee Dayz’, ‘Sunshine’ & ‘You Got Me’ I felt free. Lastly, ‘Happy Endings’ & ‘Front page’ tell stories. Stories that may or may not have a “happily ever after…”. You decide.
The bonus of this whole journey? The fact that I got to experience the whole thing with my father Errol Ross a legend in his own right and Executive Producer of the album.
The whole recording experience was coated from start to finish with unconditional love. I thank God, my mum Angela, my dad Errol, my son Amari & not forgetting my grandma…for everything.
I would like to thank Bjorn & Pedro from Villalobos Recording Studio, Almeria for the opportunity to create & record in the most beautiful studio I have ever seen, or have had the pleasure of working in! For you to have trusted in us to that capacity based on potential alone blows my mind! I am so grateful.
Also, one more member of the team that I would like to acknowledge is Steve, who not only holds it down for us from the office but is our right hand man operating with the QueenBritLIVE crew. Thank you to you all…love you xxx
Keep your ears open & enjoy the journey…much love,

”Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else… is secondary.”

Today’s feature is: Ni’cola Mitchell
1) What do you do & how well do you do it?
My name is Ni’cola Mitchell and I am the author of four literary works: Over and Over Again, The Appetizer, When You’re Not His Main Course, Forbidden Rain inside of the award winning anthology Between the Sheets, and Twisted. I am the co-founder of the Baltimore Urban Book Festival, and I am also the CEO of NCM Publishing and CFO of Obsessive Soul Media. I believe that I do my job very well, but as with anyone, I still have room for growth. I write in the genre of contemporary women fiction. This is just the political term of real women issue and situations. My stories touches on subjects from sex, infidelity, prostitution, single parent, gambling, and manipulation. This is why I do believe that I am an expert because I write about situations that I have been through, as well as the world around me.
2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?
Relocating from Las Vegas to Atlanta, with sixteen titles between myself and the authors that I have on the roster successfully released under my company NCM Publishing. Also I will be wrapping up my tour for He’s My Favorite Mistake with my best friend and co-writer Tamika Newhouse.
3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?
There were two memorable times in my life. The first one was when I walked across the stage and received my bachelor’s degree in 2008. When I sat down, my daughters were texting me that they just seen me, and how proud of me they were. I could never get that feeling again in the world. The second most memorable time in my life was when I heard my name being called to come to the stage for winning Anthology of the Year for the African American Literary Award Show.
4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?
The one thing that I would change if I had the resources would be to create more programs for teen mothers. Being a teen mother myself, I am one of the lucky ones that followed my dream and made them come true. I want to create programs that will allow teen mothers to have an opportunity to step up and live their dreams.
5) What do you think of my blog? (Message for my readers)
I think that your daily blog is a wonderful outlet for the world to find out more about independent artists! I am honored that Carlene is featuring me. World! Please don’t sleep on Carlene! She is the truth;)
Ni’cola’s song selection of the day is:
