Music, fashion, book launches …. oh my!

Hello everyone how are you all doing? I hope this update meets you healthy, grateful and happy. Lancast Ltd (and myself) have been doing work, being featured in other works and in the process of co-producing some GREAT works but more of that soon. In addition, my friends are producing some great works and they want me to advertise/promote their wares here. No problem with that LOL. Keep reading and you’ll see what I mean. This is a long one so have your favourite drink handy. Lots of info here.

Being Featured Is Great!!

1. First and foremost in relation to Lancast Ltd I want you to think.
Think Hilton Hotel worldwide.
Think material design.
Think Barry Bonds.
Think Anthony Phills (website here)
Think music / Lancast Ltd.

……… and now KNOW some GREAT products are coming soon. VERY soon!! Prepare thyselves.

Now we can continue ….

2. I am happy¬†to announce that just over a couple of weeks ago I was featured on the website Plentytalent.com. This aim of this website is to highlight and promote the talent in the creative industry within the Caribbean. It is a highly influential website and I’m honoured to be featured within it. Thanks to Gavin Luke and his team for doing a great job as well. You can see the link to the article/website here.
Read the article, like the page, share the news, spread the love.

3. It’s interesting where you end up some days. I was asked to find someone who can act the role of “The Teacher” in the short student film ‘Voices‘. Instead of searching for the person I decided to play the role myself LOL. Here’s a taste of it below. ūüôā

I love doing small roles like this. Who knows ….. it may end up winning an award like what happened way back in 2004 when I played a vagrant/transformed person in the Elspeth Duncan short ‘No Idea’. That film won the Commended Prize at¬†the Commonwealth Vision Awards. The theme was ‘Education – creating opportunity, realizing potential‘.

4. Had the pleasure of meeting up again with¬†Grammy-nominated, Dove-nominated and Juno Award winning music producer RogerRoger Ryan & Navid Lancaster Ryan in the recording studio earlier this week. He is truly one of the¬†coolest musicians I know. (Added bonus – he’s a Trini). If you don’t know who he is let me tell you. His achievements and street-cred are a mile long. Don’t believe me? Look to his website here for proof. He was in the country for a short while¬†working on a series of songs. He asked me to work on a certain studio project with him which will be revealed in due course.¬†Looking forward to more projects like this in the near future.

The Wrap Up

After the success of my previous 3-part blog series about ‘Marketing Your Music in the Digital World’ and ‘The Voice. The Music Industry. Do’s and Don’ts’ I shall be continuing with another blog series called ‘How To Build an Online Following – Indie Artists‘. This comes at a good time since the debate/controversy of steaming media is a hot topic and the creation of the newest media streaming service called TIDAL¬†is garnering a lot of attention.

That’s all for now. Don’t forget to sign up for my blog updates below, like my page and share the content. I’d really appreciate it.

Blessings,
Navid
