Episode 189 - Red Shaydez

Red Shaydez!

OK let’s talk some sh**t!

Sorry for the potty mouth.  Just trying to introduce my next guest appropriately.

Red Shaydez is a Do it your-selfer whose name I have heard countless times over the past few years. She is a busy woman and talent. A hip-hop artist, producer, videographer, public speaker, educator, and youth mentor, Red has been nominated and/or won several Boston Music Awards including Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, 617 Session artist of the year and I am sure there are many more coming.

I had the opportunity to sit with her on a rainy day at The Record Co in their brand-new facility, which is gorgeous.

I was also fortunate to have a former guest - the awesome Brandie Blaze - join me as a cohost, which is why this episode is a two part-er.

I had a great time talking to Red and Brandie – The first episode is just Red and yours truly – part two is when Brandie Blaze enters the room and then we really start talking some sh**t.

Argh.  Sorry.  Potty mouth.
