Chakra Bleu- 'We Shall Overcome'

Written by Victoria Scott & Staff


In Chakra Bleu's “We Shall Over Come,” social justice, reggae and pop-rock come together for a purpose. With lead guitar, bass slide, and rhythm guitar, the whole song flows. The arrangement is true pop-reggae incorporating guitar and drum riffs throughout. Rhythmically, everything grooves in the pocket. The instrumentation in “We Shall Over Come” is upbeat, intense, and gets the body moving.


The performance is by…

Post CD Release - Chakra Bleu on Publicity Overdrive - Part 19 

Oh Lawd, My Dear Friends, I don't complain much at all, but I would like to share a secret with you.

The work that I have encountered now, including all the songs that have been written, edited and re-edited; arranged, produced; mastered; photo shoots; artist direction to prep Graphic Artist; prepping for manufacturing decisions; prepping for the Live CD Release Show.... (I really enjoy all those parts:)

Yet, now comes the least fun of this business for me...Heavy Sigh... This is the chapter where I…

SHOWTIME! - Part 18 

The day of the show had arrived! I rehearsed myself one more time, especially giving attention to the pedal effects for each song, varied with particular parts within a song itself. I had symbols of each pedal 'command' on my SET SHEET, that had the song order. 

I had my makeup on; hair fixed; outfit ready to go; instruments ready to load into my Subaru Forester...

'Load In' was at 4:30. That means the musicians can load all their gear onto the stage at that time. I had my Les Paul, two acoustic Guilds…

It was time to Chakra Bleu to book her album release show. I decided to book the show at the historic Douglas Corner venue, which happened to be the very first place I ever played a show in Nashville. I booked it on a Thursday night at 6:00PM, which would be conducive for the music business and most people to attend after their work day, especially that this was music Showcase, rather than an ordinary gig. 

Now that the date was booked, I had postcards printed to hand out by the dozens for the show.…

Manufacturing - Part 16 

Two weeks before I scheduled the meeting with the graphic artist, I needed to make very specific decisions about which templates were available for the CD's that OASIS, the manufacturer had available. There were choices of Digipaks, Zero-Carbon Footprints; Green Wallets, Jewel Cases and more. I didn't want to go for the very affordable PLASTIC jewel case: Too much plastic. I / 1746 Records had gone for the full cardboard 'Wallet' a couple albums back, yet that product wore down easily. The Jewel Case -…
