After a long fulfilling week at SXSW with over a handful of showcases and being an original St. Pauly girl, I only feel right to post a song honoring St. Patty's Day. Take a listen here to a song I was honored to collaborate on rappers/producers Muja Messiah and Bobby Raps for their Empire Status project. The Empire Status album was influenced by the prohibition-era gangster drama Boardwalk Empire.
While slamming your shots of Jameson and chasing it down with a tall glass of Guiness, enjoy and sing-a-long with the hook while you dance with the luck of the Irish, and ignore or participate in the crazy drunkeness happening all across American streets tonight.
"We run boardwalks to whisky in Ireland..
Started a fire with what we're blazing call a fireman...
Hear the grand piano, pistols, baby doll....
The world is yours and you can have it all!"
