For each entry, Dave and the band will add a few songs to the list, explaining why they picked them–whether it’s something they’ve been listening to, something connected to where they are on the road, or just something really dope! Make sure to keep up with new entries as they come. Listen to The Motet’s Fall Tour Playlist below!Entry 3: 11/4/16 (by vocalist Lyle Divinsky)As the band makes its way to Brooklyn this weekend for a two-night run at Brooklyn Bowl, here are a few new tunes for we wanted to add to the list!“Promise To Stay Here” by Kendra Foster – This song is so funky and Kendra has so much swag. You can’t listen to this song and not be happy.“Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison – I mean…I feel like I don’t even need to say anything about this one. This has fueled so many backstage rages. Straight up party anthem.“Home” by Jaime Woods – This is more of a personal listen.  I think it’s just a perfect song and Jaime is such a beast.  She’s so restrained with her choices, then really shows off her ability at the end without going overtop.  I was listening to her in my time in Brooklyn, and I’m so happy to see she’s dropping such fire on record.Don’t miss The Motet at Brooklyn Bowl tonight and tomorrow, November 4th and 5th! We’re about to get down!Entry 2: 10/23/16 (by guitarist Ryan Jalbert)What up everybody? Here’s a few selections of some random stuff I’ve been listening to on the first leg of tour. Hope you dig:“Nocturne” by Julian Lage – The young virtuoso’s latest release Arclight is a bit of a departure from his previous releases some of the most tasteful and inspired “jazz guitar” that I’ve heard. This album has been on super heavy rotation and this track “Nocturne” is just gorgeous.“Blue Jay Way” by The Beatles – Last week we had a Beatles day and listened to the Fab Four all the way from Burlington to Boston. This here is classic 60’s psychedelic Beatles just doing whatever they want and pushing the envelop with the genius Sir George Martin at the helm to bring it to life.“They Can’t Take That Away From Me” by Frank Sinatra – Some classic young Sinatra just being a total boss, because why the f*** not?“Who Paid Them Off” by John Brown’s Body – John Brown’s Body has long been, by far, my favorite American reggae band and they just keep putting out amazing records. Before [tenor saxophonist] Drew [Sayers] left JBB to join The Motet, he was heavily involved in making this great record.“You And I” by Stevie Wonder – Stevie at his very finest… I think I’ve got something in my eye.“Six Degrees” by Ghostface Killah & BadBadNotGood (ft. Danny Brown) – The legendary Ghostface teamed up with Toronto band BadBadNotGood on the recent album release Sour Soul. The whole album is super dope analog hip hop retro-funk and this track is a highlight. Ghost goes in and Danny Brown kills the middle verse too.After a few days off last week, the Motet will be back on the road on Wednesday, 10/26 for a 6-night, 6-city run of “Mixtape 1979” shows, keeping with their long-standing tradition of themed Halloween performances. Keep an eye out for Live For Live Music’s preview of the “Mixtape 1979” run this coming week, and look out for more playlist updates as the tour rolls on!Entry 1: 10/13/16 (by drummer Dave Watts)“Lingus” by Snarky Puppy could well be the best live cut put out by a band in our scene…maybe ever??“Inspiration Information” by Shuggie Otis was recorded over 40 years ago and it’s still just as fresh!“I Got Love” by Nate Dogg is just straight gospel-inspired, funky R&B goodness!“Technicolor Nightmare” by Christian McBride showcases the virtuosity of Ron Blake and Terreon Gully and their musical mastery keeps this album a constant inspiration.last_img read more

Empowered authenticity: Putting humans first in culture & brand transformation

first_imgI’ve been thinking a lot lately about what our company stands for, our core values, the value proposition and everything that comes with creating a successful brand and corporate culture — But that lead me to question: What about our individual core values — How are each of our unapologetically human brands, our unique traits supposed to align with our corporate values, and how does that affect the corporate culture and ultimately, our brand?As CEO it’s easy to say, “This is my company and I’m going to create a culture.” But what if it’s actually the bold mix of personalities and melting pot of values brought to the table by each and every employee that truly determines what a company culture becomes? You can influence a corporate culture with branding and marketing, but it is ultimately the combined stories of those humans who live it day in and day out that define your culture — Is it not?It’s not particularly effortless to act and be authentic as a brand these days. It’s much easier to perceive an individual, a human, as authentic than it is a brand or organization. So how to do you define authenticity for your brand? Here are some definitions that we’ve heard from clients:“Letting go of who we think we are supposed to be and embracing who we are.”“Integrity, honest and genuine service.”“Honoring our story.”“Being honest and transparent in our interactions with members, and living up to our brand promises at every level of the organization”Uniquely HumanSo, what if before we embarked upon trying to create the ideal corporate culture, we took a closer look at what each person brings to the table? What if we were transparent in our efforts to shift the attitudes and feelings of a group of individuals by treating them as just that – a unique human being who brings unique traits, talents and skills to an already established institution? What if we allowed the brand to be shaped by empowering our people to live out their own personal brands first, before those we establish for the organization?I know at EmpowerFi, transparency and full expression of one’s true self will forever be the leading values that define our company culture – and wherever that takes us is our story to be told.What are your thoughts…which comes first, the individual or the culture? 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Hilary Reed Hilary Reed, founder of EmpowerFi, is an innovative thought-leader who has been involved in various aspects of strategic sales and marketing for 15 years.

Luck Mervil sobs at sentencing hearing for sexually exploiting a minor

first_imgAdvertisement Login/Register With: He said some news reports referred to allegations made during his preliminary inquiry that turned out to be unfounded and based on comments made “out of context.”On Monday, Mervil pleaded guilty to having sexually exploited a minor in 1996. An accusation that he sexually assaulted the same victim was dropped.The victim was 17 at the time. Mervil was 28 and the leader of RudeLuck, a band that was gaining popularity. A publication ban prohibits revealing details on how Mervil and the victim knew each other.However, by pleading guilty to sexual exploitation, Mervil admitted he had authority over her. She had known Mervil and his family for years. According to a statement of facts entered into the court record, she was proud to know Mervil while his star was rising but she did not find him attractive.The two had sex on several occasions. She decided to report what happened years later, and Mervil was charged in 2014.His first lawyer, Loris Cavaliere, was arrested a year later in a crackdown on organized crime. On Friday, Mervil said that development dragged his case out for much longer than he had expected.“Above all I want to say I am sorry” to the victim, Mervil said Friday, seconds after the victim exited the courtroom, apparently unable to withstand hearing what he had to say.The victim also made a statement, breaking down and crying while trying to get through it.‎She said her experience with Mervil turned her into a bitter and angry person. She became aggressive with her loved ones, in particular with her sister. She estimated she has spent $15,000 on therapy.“I burned bridges with my friends,” she said, and lost contact with family members for years. “I lost my sense of myself.”She said she fears Mervil will seek revenge for ‎having filed a complaint against him.“I think he will manipulate people he knows into hating me,” said the woman, who now lives in Europe.“When I come back to Montreal those fears grow,” she said. “That is why I don’t come back to Montreal.”Mervil said he could not comprehend why the woman would feel that he would seek revenge.“I don’t see how she could think I would seek reprisals,” he said. “You won’t find one person who can say that I had a violent thought toward her.”His lawyer, Philippe Larochelle, deposited media articles into evidence that reported Mervil had sexually assaulted the victim when that is not the crime he admitted to.Prosecutor Anne Gauvin presented the joint recommendation that Mervil receive a six-month term that can be served in the community. The first three months would involve house arrest and the following three months would involve a curfew.“We left nothing aside,” Gauvin said of the negotiations that produced the recommendation.Hébert said she will make a decision on the sentence next week.by Paul Cherry | Montreal Gazette Twitter “Above all I want to say I am sorry,” the Quebec singer says after the victim exits the courtroom.Luck Mervil, the popular singer who pleaded guilty this week to having sexually exploited a minor many years ago, broke down and cried while making a statement during his sentence hearing on Friday.A sobbing Mervil told Quebec Court Judge Mélanie Hébert about a phone call he received after he pleaded guilty on Monday. He said the principal of the school his young son attends suggested he might have to “put up a security perimeter” around the boy.Mervil said he has considered hiring bodyguards as a result of what’s been said in the news media as well as on social media.
