Recently I got a chance to parle( with the beautiful Bajan singer and get to know some more about her; a passion for writing and composing which dates back to her early teens, creatively re-tooling Sesame Street jingles and more which turned into writing cheers for the squad in High School. She revealed that it was not until music industry insiders took her seriously, that she did. How's that for not knowing what you have. Thats the honest of doing something for the love, not for the acclaim. Have you ever had a passion? Something you did from the heart? If so, you too can relate.

What happens to a dream deferred? I'll give you one better, what do you do with a dream that comes true? You live it. And when you live it, do it to the fullest. When all else fails, follow in the footsteps of Shontelle, and take full advantage. Her dream- music. Starting from a passion for composition, an awe-inspiring way with words. I think they call that in and of itself an artist. When you add the key, the melody, what do you have- something to share. when its authentic, its undeniable.

Hand-picked by Steve Rifkn CEO-SRC recordings, Shontelle revealed that the decision was a byproduct of seeing that same excitement and faith in her music by Rifkin that she has herself. How's that for a boss? Why be second or just another when you can be the focus. Smart female. "So far so good" with more to come. Available now is the
new single "Say Hello to Goodby" written from the heart, from true experiences, Shontelle shared it definitely executes its purpose. Sometimes you have to recognize the end and go gracefully.

Promo abound, Shontelle is gearing up for an aggressive run at the R&B crown. Stay tuned.

Check out some of her catalog for your enjoyment, in the meanwhile:


Say Hello to Goodbye:

I Know Thats Right

Ladies theres absolutely nothing wrong with admitting. And truth be told, if by chance things havent been so kosher in your love/social life maybe this might help. Self-promotion is the key *Beware of oversaturation of course* Need an example? I got u......

Lynx Ent Presents....Mad Music's Own..... Specialist

Hardwork is said to be the prerequisite to success. Do you disagree? Surely one person who doesnt is Lance Eustache, aka The Specialist. The New York City product has been perfecting his craft for quite some time, capitalizing off of a focus and determination second to none. A true music connoiseur, Specialist is a master at the art of freestyle, but understands the importance of substance and songwriting. The Mad Music representative has long since been a student of creativity, in the form of Hip Hop. At 25 years of age, many would say he comes across as a person far beyond his age, yet very identifiable with his contemporaries.

Adrenaline rushing, sweat pouring, articulately giving his all, you can catch Specialist at home at a show near you. Hustle personified, his mixtape offering " Now or Never" is available now. Take a walk with me, as I present to you......

What other genres of music do you bump, outside of Hip Hop?

I listen to rock, soft rock , jazz , a lil bit of country and classical.

Tell us a little bit about Mad music, whats the movement like, how did you guys hook up?

Mad Music is a group that was form about in 08. Its members consist of Zoneout, Quan Don, Sity, KoolHand, TripStone, Mane, Charmz and myself! Basically this movement is a bunch of independent artist that want to bring back real hip-hop. This group pretty much covers all genres of music and time zones. SHOUT OUT TO MAD MUSIC.

what defines Specialist as a person and as an artist?

Basically if you know me , you would know my friends nickname me special because of the type human being I am. I'm very rare , the things I say and do are uncommon just like my music .

Why rap as a means of expressing yourself?

Growing up I was always very shy and quiet but loved music. Music touches my soul and brings out the inner most feelings and thoughts of me .

If you only could have 5 songs on an ipod, what would they be?

That's a tough one but I would have to say Joe Buddens- all of me, Micheal Jackson's- Human Nature, Specialist- Trapped, Eminem- Spend some time and Zoneout- therapy

What can we look forward to upcoming for Specialist?

For starters you can check out my "imma fool" video on youtube as well as my album coming soon to I-Tunes like I said. My mixtape is out right now on titled its now or neva: Besides that I'm just grinding. More videos , shows , blogs ,radio interviews, websites ,and more music of course. Stay tuned
