Roses While We're Young


Andre Henry Music Video

Andre Henry's recording, "Roses While We're Young" is meant to be a reminder of the very few moments that we have left with our loved ones. It's arguably the most intense expression of life, caught in slow motion by this song's lucid lyrics. The Creative School of Thought, uses the rose as a metaphor for the two sides of love - the beauty of its petals and the pain of its thorns.

Will Allen & the Growing Table


By Jacqueline Briggs Martin and Eric-Shabazz Larkin

Will Allen is no ordinary farmer. A former basketball star, he’s as tall as his truck, and he can hold a cabbage, or a basketball, in one hand. But what is most special about Farmer Will is that he can see what others can’t see. When he looked at an abandoned city lot he saw a huge table, big enough to feed the whole world. No space, no problem. Poor soil, there’s a solution. Need help, found it. Farmer Will is a genius in solving problems. In 2008, the MacArthur Foundation named him one.

This is a clip from the beginning of a short film entitled, JUMP. In post production. A film for anyone that's looked suicide in the face and lived to tell the story. Jump is the story of Ed, a normal guy struggling with average problems. When Ed decides he can’t live with himself any longer, he goes to jump off a bridge. But in the act, he realizes he is not one man - he is two. He is the man that wants to die and the man that wants to kill him. His thoughts appear in the form of a man named THOUGHT. These two men have a conversation on the bridge battling out his fate. An allegory for our common human experience with pain and depression. This film takes place in the moment before a man jumps off a bridge. But the man, the bridge, the circumstances and even the suicidal thoughts are just an allegory for our common human experience with hardship, depression and the need to talk to somebody about our deepest thoughts.

NY I Love You TV

NY I LOVE YOU is an ode to independent music of the greatest city on earth. It’s a peek at artists, with little-to-no following, that are unique to the city. Before they get all famous, they take a pitstop at the Harlem Sanctuary to share a few songs.

It’s been a long time since New York has expressed it’s opinion on the state of music. We hear a lot from pop acts that claim the city, but they are long distanced from the heart of the streets and the sounds in the subways. By the time they hit, the taste of the city has already changed.

A resurgence is forming that gathers together the music scene’s most authentic voices. This show is the new guide post to the music you should be listening to and the acts you should be following.
