Intro….

I am an up-and-coming artist from Fort Worth, Tx. My top five musical inspirations are Michael Jackson, Prince, Usher, Chris Brown, and Beyoncé. I write, produce, and engineer all of my music.

When did you realize you had a passion for music?

I’ve had a passion for music since I was 3. I started as a performing artist performing in school and local talent shows. I took it seriously when I was about 18 or 19. It was a hard transition from being a performing artist to a recording artist. It disciplined me to take my time.

Who motivated you to get started?

My motivation comes from living. Sometimes I can be sitting and relaxing and instantly my mind goes, “Get up it’s not over yet. No time for relaxation.” I have this instant drive to just keep going.

Tell us about your music?

I tell stories in my music. Some of them are stories about me or someone else. It’s love, heartbreak, or what someone else may be going through. I also talk about things that people refuse to bring to light.

What message does your work express?

It’s okay for men to express their emotions. It’s for them to express how they feel about love, the hurt they may feel after a break-up, or to get people to see things from another perspective.

What is the best part about your creative process?

Writing it out and talking about it. When you’re doing it and seeing it come to life, it is worth it.

What makes your sound stand out?

My sound is both a breath of fresh air and something you haven’t heard in a while.

How do you set new standards for your industry?

Three Ways….

  1. Study the greats before you. Not only just the art that they put out but the trials they went through in the industry. This way, you’ll be able to see it coming for yourself.
  2. Break down barriers that no one has done yet. There are still some that haven’t been broken.
  3. Take risks. Don’t be afraid to ascend to the next level.

What advice would you give to your future self?

Go as high as you can. You might lose some people along the way, but it could be the ones who are holding you back. No matter what, do not stop creating.

List your most popular songs. (Top 3)

  1. Come Ova
  2. Go Off
  3. Girl Be Mine

“People are going to talk about you and you may come from a place where no one supports you, but that does not mean give up. Keep learning, growing, pushing, and, most of all, creating.”

Meet Tonni Love

Meet Tonni Love

By: Mixed Talk Media | March 24, 2022

Genre of Music

My favorite genres of music for my overall vibe would have to be R&B and Gospel. I love them both. I grew up listening to old school gospel and R&B. That is what made me fall easily in love with music.

Intro….

My name is Tonniece, but I go by the name Tonni Love. I was born and raised in Joliet, IL. Music has always been my first love since I was five years old. My sisters and I used to perform in front of our family. At the time, we were just kids having fun. I was the only one who got serious about singing. I love being around positive energy and people that motivate me to be the best version of myself. I want people to know that I am just like them. I want to help people feel good about themselves and encourage them to go further in life.

What sparked your passion for music?

I realized I had a passion for music when I sang Luther Vandross’s “Take You Out”. I was sitting outside on the porch with my mom, and I started singing the song. My mom was shocked to hear me sing like that; she was not the only one feeling that way. After that moment, I knew it had something special.

Who motivated you to start your music career?

My close friends and family were the motivation behind starting this journey. I had to get over my fears right in front of them. They made me very strong-minded about how I should always stand out.

How would you describe your music?

My music is very inspirational. I tell stories in my music that many people can relate to it. People don’t understand that everybody goes through something similar in their lives; that is okay. Overcoming each situation is what matters.

How does your sound stand out?

It’s all about my personality. I stand up for what I believe. I also stand true to myself, especially when it comes to music. I have to connect with music, so each sound you hear from me is going to be different. You’ll never hear the same sound from me.

How do you set new standards for yourself?

  • Surrounding myself with good genuine people.
  • Learning how to say No to things that don’t elevate me or the people around me.

What advice would you give to your future self?

Hang in there because you’re almost at the finish line. Don’t worry too much. God got you.

Meet Yassy Brown

Meet Yassy Brown

By: Mixed Talk Media | March 18, 2022

Industry

Fashion

Introduction….

Meet Yasmin (Yassy) Brown, a Houston Mogul in the making. Yassy graduated from Eisenhower High School and headed straight to college for Fashion Design. Yassy decided she wanted to be more than just a Fashion Designer, so she started her own Modeling Agency by the name of “Haute Model Management” (HMM) with some of Houston’s Hottest Models, and influencers under the HMM brand. Yassy also won an award for Houston Hottest Modeling Agency.

Yassy has done a plethora of Fashion Shows and has produced and co-produced more than eight Amazing Fashion shows of her own. Yassy has been one of Houston’s Runway Extraordinaire Coaches for the past seven years and counting. She became a Model Teacher at Barbizon USA until she decided to part ways with the company to pay more attention to her brand and family. Although good things came to an end for Yassy Brown in the Modeling Scene. Yassy didn’t stop there, she took time off to spend quality time with her family Omar, Brayden, & Kai.

A New Beginning…

In 2018 Yassy decided to come back in the Fashion Scene to take 2019 by storm, and she did. She has had successful sold-out model Runway Workshops, became a Runway Director for Haute Houston, and produced her fifth Successful Fashion show under the name “Fashion Haus” alongside her team members: Kia Renee & Felicia Eboni.

Now working on her sixth Fashion Haus Show. Outside of Fashion, Yassy also has an organization by the name of “MomsofHTX” that is open for all mothers who are seeking support and friendships. MOMS OF HTX is set around daily activities that appeal to moms and children of all ages. Yassy Brown has made a Platform for Houston’s Fashion Scene since 2010 by giving models, photographers, designers, and interns opportunities to make a name for themselves and to show what Talent Houston has to offer in the industry. She has made a BIG Impact in Houston and does not plan on stopping anytime soon.

Who/What is your source of motivation?

My children are my motivation as far as starting my own company. I also wanted to make changes within the fashion world.

What makes your brand/business stand out?

Haus of Brown stands out because we make something magical. We appease the client in that we make them feel seen and heard and help them bring their vision to life and more.

How do you set new standards for your industry?

We are setting new standards by keeping up with current trends and setting new ones.

Experience, Knowledge, Values, Culture, Communication


Women in Suits Event

Mixed Talk Media had the pleasure of attending Yassy’s recent event, Women In Suits. The enegery was eletric. The fashion was haute.

Women and men both rocked suits as they networked, shopped, and soaked in the vibes from the DJ. Vendors with great finds and valuable resources lined the event.

During the event there were fun games that kept the crowd engaged, an opportunity for entrepreneurs to share about their brands, and an award ceremony to spotlight entrenpreuers who are dedicated to their cause, brand, and community.

Tell us about you.

I am an entertainer, music artist, and actor who specializes in creating moments for life. I like to have something for every occasion.

When did you realize you had a passion for music?

Definitely during childhood. As an only child, music was what kept me company when I would leave my cousins’ houses. It was always something that kept me happy and I never felt alone.

Who/What was the motivation behind starting your music journey?

My music is a reflection of life. Pure passion, pain, and pleasure. I write based on what I’m feeling, have felt, or someone else is feeling. I love to speak on what my reality is because I want to be as relatable as possible.

What is the best part about the creative process?

The best part about the process is seeing things that you have imagined come to fruition. Taking an idea out of your head and seeing it come to life is so fulfilling!

What message does your work express?

I sincerely hope it presents authenticity. I like for people that I have met to listen to my music and realize that there was no change in personality. It’ll never be a case of, you met a perfect gentleman and then you turn on my music and I’m bashing women, etc. I’m the same on and off the record.

What makes your sound stand out?

The fact that you feel that I’m talking directly to you in my music. I want you to feel that you know me better after you listen to me.

How do you set new standards for your industry?

Authenticity! I don’t want to create an image that I have to take off. I want to be me at all times. I could have just performed after winning a Grammy for best new artist and then you catch me at Walmart. I’m the same person.
