From friendswelove.com , it “…began with a desire to document the inspiration, motivation and creative process of our talented friends in NYC and around the world. Our Artist Profiles quickly blossomed into four other shows. 120 Seconds soon followed as an open platform to share personal thoughts and passions. “
Friends We Love features creatives primarily in the fields of music, visual arts, film, sports, fashion, literature, and journalism, with artists N’Dea Davenport, K’naan, Phonte, Alex Barck (Jazzanova), Zaki Ibrahim, and jazz legend Chico Hamilton, to name a few, with a total of over 40 clips.
It’s interesting to see/hear what some of our favorite artists (and a bunch of people I’ve never heard of) hold dear to their hearts..soccer, water, love, dreams, and even very personal health issues..definitely worth checking out..go ahead and click away!
Big ups to Jose James (Brownswood Recordings), Thembisa S. Mshaka (thembisamshaka.com) and Sol Guy (4real.com) for the realness..
