#Blues is the #mother of #jazz – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace #Music

Blues is the mother of jazz. From Free Jazz to Swing. No one can tell me how to sing blues. My ancestors owned that sh*t. Appropriate it all you like.

Ignorants blaming singers singing off. What about the other musicians playing out of tune. Not playing in the singers key?

Here is a great read for those who still don’t compute what I’m saying.

Especially Europeans who think they invented jazz or those who like to disrespect gospel music in jazz progressively; a poignant benchmark in jazz, historically, from blues, without which – you have nothing ..’ –

Some Europeans carrying on about jazz make me laugh when they act as if it’s their legacy and not black origin music. That’s a blues for you to note.

When God elevates you ..’

Macy Gray – First Interview 😍😍😍

5yrs ago, I said I would and I did write an award winning blog. Amen ..’ – #MercyfulGrace

From, working with Obama to Macy Gray. I found my purpose and vission.

I write radical things because I have radical thoughts; and they come from radical perspectives.

Magazine Show /Dir Femi Amusan – First Black Tv Promo

If you value, yourself don’t spend it around those who don’t. Like #Jealous #Spirits and etc ..’

MercyfulGrace

Wyen Solo – First Independent Artist / Colleague Interview #In14Ways

So grateful, ‘Oh Gracious God’, for the numerous blessings taken for granted I didn’t deserve, but just because you simply love me unconditionally. You saved me.

Jake – Live & Studio Session Guitarist / Accompanist

Even in the face of adversity, unprovoked vicious uncanning jealousy, indescribable ignorance and spiritual wickedness.

Alexandra Burke – First UK Artiste Review 😍😍😍

I did it all through You, God. Amen !!!

So busy. I need someone to #sleep for me and #divide my brain into mini me’s for efficiency ..’

– #In14Ways

Like I said, if you value, yourself; don’t spend it around those who don’t. Like #Jealous #Spirits and etc ..’ Love is freedom.

First African Movie Premier Review

#NoteToThySelf

This always reminds me of what extreme demonic lengths haters will go to attempt to detail your vission and purpose to your destiny.

So, (I) stay covered by Godly Graces. Amen !!! ..’

GAB Award – Right To Brag lol

Gods time of elevation is Gods time of preservation ..’ His ways are always just, upright and forethought ..’

You can choose what to ignore. Whoever is trying to put you down is already beneath you ..’

With an army of love and faith in your heart be a guard to your thoughts. Anything is possible when you believe. When you don’t, you are halfway defeated ..’

I processed yesterday. I can dance for today and celebrate tomorrow ..’

John 15:18-25 New International Version (NIV)

The World Hates the Disciples

18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

Performing on Simply Blessing Show

I have resigned to leaving the finer details of perfection in life to Gods hands. The word of God says in the book of Ecclesiastes 3: 11:

He has made everything beautiful in it’s time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

Thank you Bimbo Afolayan🇳🇬😍 & #HeritageTv for having me on the #SimplyBlessingShow @AnthonyEverest and @jakefaun to sing & play all my original songs for the long #interview. God bless you infinitely. .

I do get told off by not doing clean live video recordings. It’s only a stepping stone is my response to that. I don’t control all the variables. Some things don’t work.

In an ideal world I would sing along with my playbacks alone or play the piano in the absence of my perfect backing band and sound crew ..’

Singing from the heart


There’s a fine line between ego and surrenderance in a song to captivate it’s essence. 

I hate a lot of my performances retrospectively; hence. And some, l’ve come to love …’

Maybe ego is strong. Knowledge, wisdom, understanding play a myriad of truths in a song.

– Anthony Everest

Figured the love of money is the problem with the world today. People: Did u get paid 4 that? Me: ‘Love is priceless’.


For me. There’s just something about focusing even when all hell is breaking loose. The Williams sister’s epitomize this well. By their truths you shall know them. Not just by their fruits. Anyone can steal fruits. Unlike truths!

Being liked by everyone ..’

Being liked 󰀀 by every one is so over rated and un-realistic. It won’t be living. Live your life and fcuk your haters who wish upon a star ..’

#MercyfulGrace

My AnR used to say to me. ‘FCUK EVERY ONE ELSE’. I guess he was saying take care of your interests. My mum said the same always. Self first. Others last. I hated those two idealogies. 

However, they are bang on retrospectively. People are inherently selfish. The naturally take, and take, and take, till you are out; and gone. It’s sad 😥 but true. Very few are exceptions to the rule and are  rare Jewels, to find. I learned this – first hand 🙋. 

I have given so much selflessly to folks over my career while the very same back 👇 stabbed; with a repeating smile 😼. Some even did it, religiously, under pretences of white ◻ Jesus, and sorts. Smh.  Now. I am done ..’ That’s the last time ..’

Of course. Be Nice, 😏, kind and helpful to those deserving and worthy of a genuine helping hand. 🙋. The rest is up to God and good karma ..’

These mofos forgot I come from good 😊 stock ..’ I have, genuine beautiful 😍 friends, amazing siblings, great uncles, aunts and cousins all over the planet. I almost forgot that part ..’

God is very much present. Satan you loose ..’ Amen. Declaring Jesus!
#MercyfulGrace

Now I fully understand Genesis 6:6. I’d be troubled too ..’ #MercyfulGrace #WhatGodSaid #Humans

I can only salute God for his patience with us. If I was him for a day – I’d wipe us all off and start again. But that won’t be love. Would it. Lesson there. On Love ..’

#MercyfulGrace #GodsLove #Amazing

My mother told me a beautiful story of how Joseph was sold into slavery and how he was always attacked where ever he went for a while, but every where he moved on to, he was always blessed again. I remember that story today! So comforting ..’

There’s a day I play and there’s a day I mean business ..’ 

I’m afraid, for what’s about to happen in the heavens beyond. For a miracle is imminent, slowly but sure. 


It’s a testimony of promise, covenant of word – that revelation of bond. It’ll rock the corners of the nations! 

One good soul could change lives. Brethren. Regardless. Don’t be dissuaded by haters and negative ❎ sorts. God keeps the record and scores ..’ Fear 😱 him alone who can kill both flesh and spirit, unlike they ..’ God Is Love 💓. My love burns their hate assunder ..’


Don’t forget me. Don’t pass me by.

With Love 

AnthonyEverest

I holistically believe creativity through art truly creates a sense of well being and a portal for great art to flourish. This holistic approach gives its users and creators a sense of freedom of self expression and interpretation :: giving rise to a new meaning to life. Thus, everyone benefits innately, deeply, greatly beyond any medical jargon, farsse, labels or medication – on end!

1928395_668394399896475_1538851922902942142_n

“Manifesting a positive thought creatively; is empowering and liberating within. I’m not your physician. I’m just saying :: this is another school of thought, of an artiste, using art to get through the pain, to get through another day, of broken thoughts and endless possibilities”.

HAPPINESS

To be able to capture the human essence through music, photography, painting, writing and etc – can be very literal to some, but to a many few who understand the, vibrations, sensations and feelings derived; on a closer look, with a different view – this can be very rewarding and life saving in many cases. Music has saved me from falling over the edge many times. Especially – the inspirational ones – that I’ve come up with.

It’s almost as if a part of me is let out to objectify and remind me when that part of me is dying on the inside again.

Not as straight forward as it seems, yet; can be a very powerful tool to keep you alive, well, and functioning. Need I say more. Keep it moving! And do the best you can while you can – no matter how little or brittle you feel. Push for your best; even if it takes you a life time. Nothing great was ever born out of an easy struggle. Some one laid down the hard graft and the foundation.

Quality rules over quantity any day of the week. More so, this is your story now – so tell it well. Love has no agenda. The only calendar; Is time. “When you realise – the same people who call you crazy, are the same people driving you crazy; you will begin to understand”.

Àrèmúorin - Anthony Everest

But when they do – I take a picture. My friend died of breast cancer recently- unexpectedly in 2014. It’s the most surreal, teary, experience :: I suffered ever – recently. Take a picture. Frame that. Now, close it, or open it, in your mind – from time to time. See how that makes you feel.

Yes, life is crazy. Some people, yet handle it better than some. This observation is only critical when it becomes pivotal. Love has a limitless capacity to love again even when it hurts. One thing I know – Love is kind ::That’s just love in its glorious flaws. It’s just what we adore about it door to door. Love is simply hard. Behind, is every door mat; every one took it apart, piece by piece – and came thru one. Don’t even deny it. If you think I’m crazy, then you’re just as crazy as me; cuz it takes one to know one!

‘I remember – I remember when I lost my mind – something special about that day ..’ Gnarls Barkley ..’

But :: With ‘Love’ – Keep it moving.
