JoRob who is a singer, songwriter, and producer was known to grace each track with his urban resonance. The unique sound and vibe that JoRob has in his music will never be matched; JoRob is constantly re-inventing himself to reach perfection. “There is always room for improvement. When you settle, that’s when you, as an artist, will fail.” During the interview JoRob tells Vanie,  “Everyday I’m contacting artist, producers, radio stations and DJ’s. I’m reading up on the entertainment industry & tricks of the trade. I spend a lot of time promoting my album and videos. I have developed a number of new clothing pieces for my clothing line JoRobWear. I spend hours and hours at my studio writing music and recording.

“You have to be humble enough to appreciate the ideas of others especially when the idea may be better than your own.”

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants Peso’s Mexican Cantina, I was able to meet with the very eccentric Londyn Lyná. This 24 year old artist representing Atlanta, GA is the most down to earth person that you will ever meet. Not only does she sing but she also plays the piano and clarinet. Her background in music is derived from a spiritual one, she is also inspired and reflective of Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse, Sade, Ella Fitzgerald, and Count Basie just to name a few. “I love composer and pianist Richard Smallwood, I like a lot of old jazz. I make classical music with a contemporary sound.” When I asked Ms. Lyná what type of people she surrounds herself with she responded, “I surround myself with people like myself. I realize all of my friends that I hang around talk about music all day. All we do is music and that’s all that matters.”

That is why a surgeon might recommend a chin implant when the patient thinks he needs a rhinoplasty. In the end, the patient decides which procedures to have, but all patients should understand that the surgeon’s advice is based on sound
