The Sunset Kings Collaborate with T-Pain's Protege Miu

 The pop sensation from Haiti met The Sunset Kings frontman at CDBaby’s DIY Music Conference in Chicago last September where they learned from industry staples such as music blogger and lifestylist Ari Herstand, rock photographer Becky Yee, and Patreon founder Jack Conte.
David, Miu’s manager, says about The Sunset Kings,

“There are plenty of musicians we met in Chicago, but what we like about The Sunset Kings is they are authentic.  They’re not trying to prove anything to anybody.”

The budding partnership continued long-distance; while The Sunset Kings continue to embed themselves as active contributors to the Boston arts community with their release of “Rose-Tinted Raybans” (, Miu’s international career has grown steadily as crowds in Miami and New York City begin to match her audience in Port-au-Prince.
Now Hear This Entertainment’s feature of Miu attributes her success not only to her work ethic and ambition but on the fact that she is,

“Multi-lingual, she participated in an international competition that resulted in a single with American artist T-Pain. She has collaborated with various arrangers from locations ranging from St. Lucia to Puerto Rico, Tanzania, the United States, and, of course, Haiti, and also published a book of poems in French and plans on writing again.”
— Now Hear This Entertainment, NHTE 120 Miu

Garnering over 277,000 YouTube views on her Fall 2015 single, “They Say”, Miu’s artistic energy is undeniable, and her collaboration with The Sunset Kings is bound to result in a sound we haven’t yet heard from either artist.

Time: 8pm-10pm

Frontman Allister Quilon says, “We really want to make this a donations based event because we get an awesome opportunity that not a lot of people get, to be hosting such a cool person like Miu, who also happens to be a great artist … I don’t see that as success for us.  I see that as a success for the community that I am a part of, and I want it to be as accessible as possible to anyone who wants to share in this moment.  Who cares if you don’t have five bucks?  Just come in and hang out.”

About Me

  Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 18x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Hey Guys! Thanks for checking in! I hope you've been well :) Do I have quite the update for you all! I know, I know. My failure to regularly post on my old faithful blog has gotten out of control. I used to post at least monthly, however, for the past couple of years I can only find the time to write you all two or three times a year. I want to thank you all for the continued support and readership from the bottom of my heart. Even reviewing my blog stats to see that this blog still receives 50-70K+ reads a year, even with my minimal posting makes me so happy. This post will discuss various events, endeavors and adventures that I've been getting into for the last several months so stay tuned to peep my highlights.
