Just in time for summer, MayNothingStopYou is introducing a new line of designs and tank tops. There are six new designs that are mostly unisex designs but there are a couple of colors that are strictly for males or strictly for females. With that being said, all tank tops are unisex tank tops with a 60/40 blend of cotton and polyester for that soft and thin feel that is perfect for the heat of summer. We have also introduced a 60/40 blend t-shirt that has the same thin feel as the tank tops. You can purchase yours today at MayNothingStopYou.com. We will be implementing a new design every month until the end of 2016.

I have always been a fan of Hip-Hop with a live band for performances. With that being said, my engineer, Aric Frank, at Nova Sango Studios had the same thing in mind. After months of searching and rehearsing with new band members, Cliz & The Clockmen was finally established. The members that make up this band are Cliz (vocalist/MC), Aric Frank (bassist), George Bikos (guitarist), Paul King (guitarist), and Mr. David Curran killing it on the drums. Together, we form a band that merges many various sounds into one, “no-genred” band that takes the live setting to a whole new level. We believe in leaving people with an experience and on Sunday, May 22nd, we did just that.
Summer Survivors, a Sarasota-based Rock/Reggae band, had a release party for their new album, “Hashed Out”. We were blessed enough to have the opportunity to perform there as a band for the first time. Paul, guitarist for Cliz & The Clockmen, hooked us up with the event because he actually plays with Summer Survivors and is very instrumental in all the success they have had. This event took place at Gilligan’s Island Bar & Grill in Siesta Key, FL and had a turnout of 400+. (Find Summer Survivors at: https://itun.es/us/Djh-bb)

“Sistine on the Sixteen” is the first single off of the up and coming album, Personal Journal Vol. I. The single talks about how vivid Cliz’s words can be. So much so that the lyrics can form pictures in the minds of those truly listening. In this sense, Art can be expressed through word and imagery fusing together as one. This will become apparent once you begin to listen to the song for yourself. And for those of you who aren’t familiar with dr. O, it is the alter ego of Cliz that speaks on topics that Cliz wouldn’t normally speak on. Huge thanks and shoutout to Aric Frank and Rob Caldwell of Nova Sango Studios for such a great production. Without these guys, it would be hard to bring to these projects to life. Another huge thanks to Layne Harper for such an amazing design on for the cover art. You killed it as always brother.

Every Tuesday night at Ed’s Tavern, Paula Hushaw and friends host an open mic for the local talent of the Bradenton/Sarasota area. It is a very fun event where we perform, socialize, network, and meet new musicians from various types of genres. I, myself, perform there too so if this Tuesday you have nothing to do, why not spend it with us jamming to great and original music. If you come this week and mention this blog post, I will give you a #MayNothingStopYou bracelet to show my appreciation. Below is a little video of what happened last week and what’s to come in the future!

Every Tuesday night at 9:00 p.m.
Cliz and dr. O have finally finished the mixtape titled A Mirror Image.
Now if you are still wondering who dr. O is, well take a look at the reflection in the mirror of the cover art. It is in fact Cliz’s darker alter ego. He represents the darker voices on all of the songs present on this mixtape. The whole point behind this project was for Cliz to really send a message to his audience. The intentions were to convey to everybody that they should not be scared to represent what they believe in or to speak their minds.
WE are all vital parts of society so why don’t we give people our opinions; educate ourselves with others; and actually regard what the other people are saying. What is the point of speaking our minds if nobody will listen? The darker element of dr. O helps to characterize how serious and passionate Cliz is about what he does and what he represents. With that being said, enjoy the mixtape and you can stream/download it at the link provided below.
Expect more music videos and shows to come after this! Beats provided by Mack, Truhble Kelp, NoName Beats, Cliz, and Spence Mills. Post-production by Cliz and Mack. Album art drawn and painted by Katelyn Moran and digitally edited by Javier Santana of Santana Creative.
So the third single to “A Mirror Image” has been dropped!!! This one is titled “All in my Blood” featuring dr. O and Mack.
The music was also produced by Mack so a big shout out to him! This song is extremely significant to me because I wrote this song on November 11, 2013, the day I joined with Next Level Nation and E-Man! I was very excited to start working so I went home and wanted to write immediately. I remembered that Mack had sent me a beat with an idea for a hook, so I decided to give that a listen. Right when I heard the music come on, I started vibing. Then I heard the hook! He had another idea with the same flow, but we ended up tweaking the hook a bit to what you hear now. But when I heard the original hook, I knew it would be a jam. In regards to the lyrics, the goal was to show you guys the seriousness behind my work. I don’t just write to fill up lines with nonsense. I take my time to make sure every line is relative to me and broad enough so that it can relate to you as well. I’m trying to share my passion for music so that you can find whatever passion excites you and work towards it. To never stop even when you don’t know what’s to come. That’s why I do this. To inspire people that are/were just like me! Please comment, share, like, and leave some FEEDBACK!!!! It is always greatly appreciated! This song is available for download under the “His Music” tab.
