Alright everyone, I produced and edited a video for the legendary rock club, The Stone Pony. How siked am I about this? Umm, I'm kinda flippin out over here. Which means go check it out!
Special thanks to Jason Barbosa for videography (and dealing with me that day...I was so excited about the opportunity!)
Erin Capuano, who just happens to make great connections at the exact right time and sometimes stuff like this video happens because of them. THANKS!
Music has the power to heal and make change. Forbidden Fruit has decided to perform at several benefit shows this spring...all dedicated to very important causes. Please visit http://www.forbiddenfruitband.com to see the schedule. We hope to see you at a show soon!
My good friend, Chris Jones of Sunday Allstars died suddenly this month. It's so tragic. I don't know what to say except that I loved and will always love Jonesi. His music and soul touched me and so many people. I'm so sorry this happened. Love, Maggie
Yes, it is that time. It's time to update the old Sage Indie Music site. I'm not sure how many of you out there are actually reading this, but nevertheless (I love that word) I will continue. Things really couldn't be better musically right now. Forbidden Fruit has totally taken off. We have a grammy award winnng producer getting ready to produce our next album. If I can use a quote from him, "Forbidden Fruit is the void in today's music." Yes, Commish, I agree. We've been gangstered/ hip hop-ed out and I think people really want to hear some fun, happy, and positive music. Forbidden Fruit's reggae-soul music is where it's at. I knew it when I first met the guys in Forbidden Fruit. Here we are 2 years later finally being noticed or discovered (whatever you might call it). Bottom line, I believe these 2 years have proven to only bring the band to a new level musically. I've noticed in our live performances a tightness between members like never before. I've noticed creativity in our arrangements like never before. I've noticed an excitement of a real possibility of success like never before. I've noticed comrairerie like never before. We are going somewhere and we are all hoping that somewhere will be "straight to the top." And if that never happens, well, I feel that I've given myself fully to a musical project that I believe in and when I'm 80 years old swinging on my porch, I will feel proud and accomplished to have been part of such an organization. And that is what is important to me.
