Seeking a manager?

8Jun

POSTED BY

I just browsed around while contemplating the topic of seeking management, and this is what I have found: https://bandzoogle.com/blog/musicians-you-don-t-find-a-manager-a-manager-finds-you

 Well, I guess I better just keep doing this thing until, one day, when a manager “finds” me.

Cheers.

In the meantime…

Chew on this for a bit. Just sit back and press play… Let’s take a trip together. Bless. ~Atiim

Simo & Mancub feat. Atiim Chenzira

It seems like yesterday when Kosta Cross called me and asked if he could shoot my number to Simo. I asked, “For what, and who is Simo?”, and Kosta replied, “Well, Simo is a producer and DJ, and I told him that if he wanted a lyricist and vocalist he’d better call you.” “Sure”, I said. A month passed and I hadn’t written a word, as I was still attempting to wrap my head around the beat. Shit! I’d better write something, I said to myself, and the day of our scheduled studio time six verses poured out of me; three of which made it to their new single ‘Proper Job’. It’s A collaborative production between Simo of Sleevin Records and Mancub of the San Francisco Space Cowboys (a Burning Man Tribe of musicians/DJ’s). Oh, and it’s free to download!!!

The Show

Hey folks, I will be performing with my band, FatheR BrotheR Sun, this Saturday December 20th at Spice Monkey in Downtown Oakland for the final quarterly expression of Oakland Drops Beats in 2014. As some of you may know, since 2005, I have also been the CEO and Founder of A Thousand WordZ (http://AThousandWordZ.net); a community of mixed genre artists who share their works in community to build community. Check out the website. It has been a pleasure to organize visual, culinary, and audio arts to provide a special environment to share community ideals and to support non-profit organizations in our world who are working towards supporting natural disasters. This time around, we will be asking participants to donate what they can to provide support for some local Oakland non-profits. We’ll work the details out for who we choose soon, so stay tuned. For now, please review the flier below, tell your family and friends, and come out in support of Oakland ‘Standing Up’ to revitalize Downtown Oakland’s business district and arts, and local artists of Oakland sharing their passions to help you alleviate and elevate!
