Thrilled to welcome BVH Art & Apparel to the Manifestation Media social marketing family! After 2-years of working in different realms and continuing to build our respective businesses, Sean & Ginger Tanner (owners of BVH) & Manifestation Media have reunited to promote Boulder Vapor House and his brand new business BVH Art & Apparel!

Excited to have this opportunity to help create an art focused marketing presence that joins the artist in Boulder and creates sales opportunities for local artist in this community. I first met Sean & Ginger at a charity event they hosted in the BVH space called “The Boulder Flood Relief benefit” in September 2013 shortly after the major flood that happened September 11 of that year. I was hired shortly after to help promote “Boulder Vapor House” and helped bring their Facebook page from 600 likes to over 6000+ in the 11 month period we worked together. I stepped away from my position at BVH in 2015 to finish getting my degree in Events & Entertainment Management and focus my career on providing high-quality Social Media & Office Management for the ARISE Music Festival.

This year Boulder Vapor House has become an official sponsor of the ARISE Music Festival and will be providing an opportunity for a local artist who may not have been accepted to attend ARISE as “official live painters” a place to sell their work through the BVH Art & Apparel pop-up gallery. If you are an artist interested in taking advantage of this opportunity you can sign up below!

Feeling so blessed to have this opportunity to help create an art focused marketing presence for BVH that unites the artist in Boulder and creates opportunities for local artist in the community!

FESTIVAL ART SPOTLIGHT: Forward Momentum’s Instrument Garden at SONIC BLOOM 2017

Happy First Sunday in JULY to all of the marvelous manifestors’ near and far! I woke up the first day of this month 7/17 renewed, refreshed, and creatively inspired.

I am excited to be sharing with you something special that my good festival industry friend Tyler Manning has been working on! Tyler has become well known in the industry as Producer of EDM event Boredomfest in Michigan. Tyler is an insanely intelligent and hard working GET IT DONE type guy who continues to impress me no matter what endeavor he decides to pursue. We met when I was the Office Manager for ARISE and I brought him onto the team. I am so impressed by how he adapts to any role he takes on and I know his role with ARISE has helped the entire production and opened the door for amazing opportunities for the FORMO crew. His latest project The Instrument Garden has been featured at Boredomfest & SONIC BLOOM so far this summer.

The Instrument Garden started out as a community space for festival patrons to play instruments at ForMo’s Michigan festival, Boredomfest. Thanks to creative festivals like SONIC BLOOM, it has since blossomed into a mobile production studio, set up to sample and create music that will capture the feelings and energies of our favorite music festivals and last a lifetime.

IMG_1598

Music producers from the Colorado-based Forward Momentum Collective set up The Instrument Garden on festival sites that hold instruments and music producers, always ready at a moment’s notice to record the strange, exciting, and exotic sounds of the festival goers.

If you find yourself behind closed doors in the Instrument Garden, you may find that you feel called play the instrument in your hand with no barriers. A silent space is created for you to put on headphones, listen to the backtrack, and allow your soul to flow through your instrument. With this method of production, rawest and most authentically flowing sounds manifest. The artist is free of worry about what’s musically right or wrong and this ultimately creates an album.

IMG_1614
The album art is created at the fest by a featured painter.

At the end of the festival, hosts perform the music on stage and invite all collaborators to join them and feel the joy of sharing the creation with the community.

At the end of the festival, hosts perform the music on stage and invite all collaborators to join them and feel the joy of sharing the creation with the community.

You can find the The Instrument Garden will be at Suboctave Music Festival in July and ARISE this August.

Bassnectar’s FREESTYLE SESSIONS at 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, CO!

When I was 8 years old I was chubby. As a kid, my parents tried putting me in lots of different sporting activities growing up to promote health and an active lifestyle. I was in DANCE from ages 3-5. I learned to RIDE a bike, and did Tang Soo Do (Korean Martial Arts) from 7-8. Tried a few seasons of Soccer at 8-9. But did not find MY TRUE LOVE until the summer of my 8th year of life when I jumped into the pool and started competitive swimming. I have hypermobility in my shoulders that allows an advantage at what most people consider the “hardest” stroke THE BUTTERFLY. I used to swim many FREESTYLE SESSIONS day after day in the pool training for swim meets. I quit swimming competitively my sophomore year in high school because my swimming coach was an asshole and a pervert. It broke my heart and I haven’t swum every day since. I miss the water. When I dropped out of swimming I was placed by my school into a class that landed me in a school club called Future Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA for short). I did not know it then but dropping off the swim team and joining FCCLA would ultimately help me land a scholarship to Johnson & Wales University – Denver and a degree in Entertainment & Event Management. The moral of this story: Sometimes in life letting go of the things we love is necessary for progress and evolution. So my dear Butterfly Mermaid friends, join me this July 7-9 and let’s FLY FREE through the magic of Bassnectar sounds together at the 1st Bank Center. From where I live right now I can ride my bike to the 1st Bank Center.

RIDE. DANCE. FLY. SWIM THROUGH SOUND. BASSNECTAR FREESTYLE SESSIONS!

CLOZEE HARMONY TOUR TO HIT COLORADO NEXT MONTH!

So happy to announce that one of my favorite artists in the world right now, Chloe, aka CloZee hits my beautiful home state of Colorado 4 TIMES NEXT MONTH! I had the lucky experience of running into CloZee at both the Sonic Bloom and ARISE Festivals last year. She generously gave me one of her “special limited edition” weirdly oversized hat pins and played some of the best live music I saw outdoors last summer. This year at Envision I was sitting in the Solo Bueno VIP lounge relaxing after a hard day at work running around the festival as an Intern when I said her name and BOOM she appeared right in front of my face almost instantly. This slightly magical experience reminded me how much more powerful we all are at Manifestation when we finally LET GO and let ourselves go into CHILL MODE. Sometimes it seems the best things happen to us when we sit back, relax, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.

Get your tickets, grab your best friends, and immerse yourself into a soundscape unlike any other. CloZee is coming to Colorado 4 night THIS JULY. Details and a chance to win a pair of tix to either her Boulder or Denver shows below.

7 MUSICAL ACTS TO SEE AT SONIC BLOOM 2017!

Happy Thursday!

We are officially 7 days out from when the music begins at this year’s 12th annual Sonic Bloom Festival!! I am crazy busy right now but feeling oh so blessed and honored to have been asked to help promote this fabulous fun summer event over the last several months. I wanted to share the updated FULL ART LINEUPS + MUSIC SCHEDULE just released this week + share with you all my top 7 musical picks for this year’s festival.

18920984_10154679232772253_7101452120978645255_o

 

I have always had a hard time with festivals like SONIC BLOOM as the lineups are always ABSOLUTELY STACKED WITH AMAZING TALENT FROM AROUND THE WORLD and it seems nearly to impossible to actually see everything. So this year following my inner voice after continuing to see a lot more of those lucky 777’s I mentioned in my prior post “The 7 Lucky Things I learned as an Envision 2017 Intern” I have narrowed it down to ANOTHER LUCKY 7. This is a simple and NON-CONFLICTING list of sets that I hope will provide attendees a well-rounded taste of the SONIC BLOOM festival experience as the acts booked for this year’s fest span across a wide range of genres and styles. While I do believe that “genres” are close to obsolete in this style of music environment I also feel that each artist does have a special gift for creating a certain type of musical environment that is different and generally is characterized by certain types of rhythms and sounds, samples used, and particularly specific fan bases.

1. MIKEY LION 

GENRE: TECHNO-HOUSE-LOVE 

SET TIME: SUNDAY 12:30AM-2AM

STAGE: BLOOM

With musical roots in the oldskool sounds of Daft Punk & Wu-Tang Clan, THE BOSS MAN at DesertHearts Records is sure to impress the masses late night on Sunday with some PURE TECHNO HOUSE LOVE fused with strong tribal, hip-hop, and psychedelic elements. “Part mythical desert harlequin, part modern soul conductor, Mikey Lion is more than a DJ––He’s a freak of nature and a controller of energy” (soundcloud). As a child with a mother from San Diego who has many fond memories of dancing and playing on the beaches there, I am so stoked to check out this The San Diego-native as he has earned a real name for himself as the center of the Desert Hearts movement. Cheers to all those who can PACE THEMSELVES enough to make it to his set Sunday and DANCE FROM THE HEART like it was the first set of the weekend. #DANCEFROMTHEHEART

2. Maddy O’Neal

GENRE: ELECTRO-HIP-HOP-SOUL

SET TIME: SATURDAY JUNE 17th – 7:45-9PM 

STAGE: Hummingbird 

A Colorado local and former member of duo Krooked Drivers, Maddy O’Neal is a woman on the verge. She just started a brand new chapter of her musical life with the debut of her new self-titled project ‘Maddy O’Neal.’ I resonate with her because I know what it is like to BREAK FREE from the limitations of past projects and step out on my own as a female in the music industry. For the first time in her career, she has full creative control which is HUGE. I see Maddy as a shining light of positive energy and a leader in the male-dominated live electronic genre. Maddy’s rock n’ roll roots and growing appetite for old-school hip-hop, high-quality remix’s, and sunny personality give her a versatility that sets her apart from most other artists in the scene. #BOSSLADY

3. RANDOM RAB 

GENRE: RANDOM-RAB

SET TIME: 7:15-8:45PM 

STAGE: BLOOM 

A few years ago I rang in 2015 with Random Rab at a super small Arcade/Bar in Downtown Denver that no longer exist as an event venue anymore The 1UP. This Random Rab set stands out to me as a really special performance from Rab for several reasons. For one, it was not a sunrise set outside, secondly, Andrelien, Love & Light, and Templo opened and absolutely HYPED the crowd way more than I can reasonably get for anything at 5:45 AM. At this very random and very packed NYE show, Rab showed me his true power as a performer and producer by showing me his true voice and keeping the energy up showcasing another side of himself and his music in a way I had not seen before. While I will always remember each of the amazing sunrise sets I have had the privilege of seeing him play, I can’t forget how magical that night was. I LOVED the high-energy vibe of the crowd as we danced to a much more upbeat style of Rab’s music. This year I look forward to seeing what he has in store knowing that his set will be right around sunset instead of sunrise. I think it is amazing when an artist can break out of what fans begin to expect as their “normal”. Why? because none of the people I know that go to SONIC BLOOM are anything close to normal. We love being random and learn to accept this aspect of ourselves a little more each day that goes by.  #KeepItRandom

4. SPACE JESUS 

GENRE: SPACE-BASS

SET TIME: SATURDAY JUNE 17th – 8:45-10:15PM 

STAGE:  BLOOM 

Calling all Martians and Cosmic Mermaids that love to get down to SPACE BASS! Space Jesus has quickly become one of my favorite electronic music producers. Space Jesus aka Jasha Tull is based in Brooklyn, NY with firm roots in hip-hop. His unique and futuristic bass sounds and high energy beat drops make it almost impossible to not get the F down during his crazy hyped sets. He totally melted the faces of the already melted crowd the last time I saw him at Bamboo Bass Festival in Jaco, Costa Rica and I am really excited to see what he brings to this year’s Bloom. #SPACEBASS

5. BARCLAY CRENSHAW AKA Claude VonStroke

GENRE: METAPHYSICAL SLOW JAMS-HIP-HOP

SET TIME: FRIDAY JUNE 16th 9:15-10:15 PM 

STAGE: HUMMINGBIRD 

YOU ARE IN MY SYSTEM. That new album is my jam. THIS JUST MIGHT BE THE MUST SEE SET OF THE WEEKEND FOR ME! “Metaphysical Slow Jams”? Say what? I just gotta see this to believe I fully understand what that REALLY means…#METAPHYSICAL

 

6. I.LL GATES 

GENRE: ILL-TYPE-MOVES

SET TIME: FRIDAY JUNE 16th 9:15-10:15 PM 

STAGE: HUMMINGBIRD 

Something about his style just always seems to meet me where I am. His recent set with live drummer Kj Sawka at Bamboo Bass Festival was absolutely one of my favorite live improvised sets EVER at a festival. It is safe to say he is the real fucking deal when it comes to both live performance and technical knowledge. He is best known as a  “bass droppin’, educatin’, oscillator modulatin’ space genius from the future.”

“DJing since age 13 ill.Gates has had a long and lavish career in the music business. Known for his epic collaborations with Bassnectar, Beats Antique, Datsik, Mimosa and Opiuo he is no stranger to the top of the charts. With 4 studio albums under his belt and hoards of unreleased original music ill.GATES is known for unforgettable live sets peppered with improvised finger drumming and original visuals.” #ILLTYPEMOVES

6. THE BIG GIGANTIC CHEESE BISCUITS

GENRE: SUPERGROUP 

SET TIME: SUNDAY 10:45-12:45

NO SOUNDCLOUD preview on this one people. This is the real deal. A completely original performance by a brand new never before seen supergroup. #ONCEINALIFETIME

Happy First Friday in May to all my magical mermaids and manifestors near and far! I am very excited to share with you this week’s #ARTISTofTHEWEEK – DEREK CARPENTER aka ART OF ONE! Derek and I met years ago when we were both just starting our careers in the Colorado festival/art scene. I remember the day we met at Boulder Vapor House (BVH) like it was yesterday. At the time I was working as a Social Media Strategist & Event Production Assistant for  BVH. I helped coordinate live painters for the very first “Hill Block Party” and he was one of them (see pic below). It is truly amazing to think about how much we both have advanced in our professional careers since the day we met. I feel we are both living testament to what a little hard work and focus can bring to your career. I am so proud to call him one of my friends for life. He has supported my vision for my Manifestation Media class series by attending my recent class at Bodywork Bistro on Instagram Management. Today I return the community love by showcasing a few of his latest works below and offering my fans a discount code for 20% OFF ALL ORDERS FOR THE NEXT MONTH on his new website store: www.artofone.org.
