Greetings Brothers & Sisters,
Welcome to September! August was another active, interesting month. It also seemed to kind of last forever, but maybe that was just me. Let’s jump into the goings on, shall we?
I’ve had some things going on with my throat for a little over a week now, so I went to the doctor. Your Friendly Neighborhood Christian has himself an abscess in there. Swallowing, breathing, etc. has been a bit of a chore, but I’m making it.
Tomorrow night, I have the distinct honor and privilege of performing at JJ’s
with Ryan Oyer. Ryan is one of the most prolific artists I know, and we’ve been
friends for over five years now. He did the layout for my record, and I
produced a song on his debut album. I’m extremely happy to be sharing the stage
with him, and you should come out if you’re in or around Bohemia .
The show is only $5, so if you like the tunes we kick out, you should have some
extra scratch to buy our merch… and help keep us off the streets! Chattanooga
In other news, my newest poem was published recently in the latest issue of Stimulate Your Soul magazine. It’s distributed out of
The poem is called Two Weeks and deals with Mike Brown and what transpired
after the shooting. You can read it here: http://www.stimulateyoursoul.com/blog/2014/8/30/two-weeks-by-spoken-word-artist-christian-j-collier.html
On the 26th of this month, I’ll be sharing the stage Minton Sparks. If you’re unfamiliar with her or her works, she’s a Grammy-nominated artist who’s performed with several highly-acclaimed acts. I’m really looking forward to that night. You should come out to Charles & Myrtle’s and catch us. I guarantee satisfaction.
Lastly, I’ve got some BRAND NEW MERCH coming! You’ll be able to buy new shirts AND hoodies from me soon. They’re stylish, a little bit sexy, and have my personal stamp of approval as well as my government name on them. They’ll be available for purchase on the 12th of this month.
Well, that’s all I’ve got for now. Be good, stay in touch, do good things, and I’ll post again in the near future. Scout’s honor.
