George Morris and the Gypsy Chorus

DETROIT PROUD: George Morris and The Gypsy Chorus

“I think you can be inspired by anything.” George Morris has been writing music since he was in high school, first in a style known as “bedroom pop.” Why? Well, he would write and record it all in his bedroom, all on his own. “Everyday interactions, books,” George says. He pulls inspiration from everything around him. He jokes “even romantic comedies. You just have to keep your eyes open.”

DETROIT PROUD: Blaire Alise

Okay, so she has her own band, her band has played the renowned Metro Times Blowout, and she was awarded a full scholarship to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston for their summer program – where she was crowned the winner of the Berklee College of Music Singer/Songwriter competition…twice! Oh, did we mention she has accomplished all of this by the age of 16?! Yeah, we’re pretty impressed too.

Scott Allen

DETROIT PROUD: Scott Allen

“We all have real jobs now and do the ‘grown-up’ thing, but this is my way to break free from that – we just love music.” You may remember the name Scott Allen from the band Thunderbirds Are Now! – the Metro Detroit band that made a name for themselves in the early 2000s, signing with French Kiss Records and touring throughout Europe, America, and parts of Australia at a very young age.

Verily Magazine – ‘Less of who you should be and more of who you are’

Girls, what would you say to a magazine that focuses on being the best of who we are as women? A magazine that wants to embrace femininity and make women learn they should be valued for being themselves – the unique, beautiful, strong, and intelligent women they are? A magazine that aims to promote and reinforce what being a woman is all about? A magazine whose motto is “less of who you should be and more of who you are”?
