All Access Fridays featuring Tiffany Wilson

Friday, Friday May 10, 2019 // 4-6pm // Youngstown Cultural Arts Center

Come join us this Friday, May 10th for a workshop with the incredibly talented, Tiffany Wilson! The theme of the workshop is...

"Expressing Your Truth: Staying True to Yourself in Your Artistic Expression"

Tiffany Wilson is a true musical artist and songwriter whose voice speaks to something real and soulful. Not content with writing only standard love songs, her latest album "#SeeSharp" also speaks of inner and outer change, politics, and vision of a brighter future.

As a solo artist, Tiffany released her first original project "Music Therapy" in 2009 and her sophomore album “#SEESHARP” in July 2016. With this project, Tiffany's plan is to use her voice, pen and outlook to shed some light and love on what's taking place in our shared world.

The production of her sophomore release is a conscious blend of the sounds of the past and the future. It is a mix of classic live soul & funk music filtered through her contemporary R&B roots and sensibilities. Eschewing the retro soul fad and moving towards a unique combination of past, present, and future-

Ms. Wilson is a true original.

All Access Fridays featuring Ace Wilson
Friday, December 14, 2018 // 4-6pm // Youngstown Cultural Arts Center

For the fourteenth installment of All Access Fridays, Ace Wilson will be leading a Vocal Technique Workshop to help you improve your singing and find your voice.

Ace Wilson is a queer and transgender artist of color who currently focuses on video media after realizing the true power that video media has on influencing the world. 

In high school, Ace was really into watching documentaries, especially the ones about space where that omnipresent white man voice is like "As we travel, billions of light years across the galaxy, we will discover what humans call a galactic star cluster." Ace used to thrive off those type of documentaries. Little did they know that their fascination with documentaries as a piece of art and an educational tool would lead them to become a videographer as a profession.

Ace is grateful to have had many opportunities to get hands-on skills and experience with video, with the most recent and profound opportunity, becoming a KEXP intern. They are also a musician, so naturally they've been sucked into the world of music videos. Ace realized that they wanted to create music videos artist after they noticed that they spend a lot more time watching music videos compared to the amount time watching films. They love music videos because of their flexibility. For example, music videos can be super clean and to the point or experimental and edgy, it's really about what the musician wants to convey. Ace also appreciates the fact that music videos can leave emotional impact on the viewer in such a short amount of time. 

Ace is excited to share their knowledge with you so that you can sculpt your music videos into what you want them to be.

Guayaba
"Every person contains multitudes, but few embrace them as much as Northwest rapper and vocalist Guayaba. As an artist, she’s fronted metal acts, made experimental pop ballads, raps, etc. But this idea extends beyond how she executes her vision. Digging through her lyrics in her latest album, Black Trash/White House, she embraces her race, gender, sexuality, and every facet of herself that makes her who she is with an unshakable, bilingual flow." (Local Artist Spotlight, Dusty Henry, KEXP Blog, 24 April 2017)
https://aguadeguayaba.bandcamp.com

doNormaal
"Seattle emcee DoNormaal offers surprise after lyrical surprise in the tightly packed, staccato rhymes brimming on her latest LP, Third Daughter. The rapper, who burst on the Emerald City scene in November 2015 with the release of her beloved first full-length Jump Or Die has maintained status as one of Seattle’s most sought-after spitters."
