 I finally got the chance to sit down and chat with music producer, songwriter, and musician Tony Moore. As we sat in his ‘Zen’ Office we not only talked about the music biz,  he also shared with me his journey into finding  peace and how excited he was about his future now that he’s about to carry on a rich music history. The Breed Studio formerly known as The ‘J’ Room has been sitting for years waiting for someone to take over its legacy and that someone is Tony Moore.  In 2015 doors that were once closed will be re-opening to introduce the new “The Breed Studio”.

“The First thing I picked up was PEACE, and I’ve never had PEACE in my life until now” -Tony Moore


 Many may ask,  “How can one not have PEACE when they seem to be living the good life and have all the things money could buy?” Little do many people realize is that money can not buy peace just like money can not buy happiness. PEACE! Is Freedom. There is tranquility in having a peace of mind outside of material gain, the cars, the clothes, condo’s and all the other nice things money could buy. Who wouldn’t want to live the glamorous life and work with some of the most talented artists that many of us only get to see on TV.  The music industry is so fast paced and I’m sure it’s hard to sit back and find oneself in a state of peace let alone a peace of mind.  In the midst of all the success and perks that came along with being Tony Moore he had to take a step back, set himself apart and remember why and who he was doing it all for. In doing so doing so he  found something he’s never got to enjoy, which is PEACE!.

“I love to see people who are pure hearted and passionate” -Tony Moore

 5629610818019779634Many people choose to do what’s popular over what is right just to please others instead of following their hearts desire. Passionate people are doers who are courageous and the audacity to do everything that drives them to keep going no mater what others may think or how the circumstances may look. Everyone of us are called for a purpose greater than ourselves.  It takes a strong resilient person to overcome and allow their passion and hearts desire to push them onto the next level of success.


The next level is already here! In 2015 “The Breed Studio” will be opening its doors inviting all to come witness  “The Wonder Room”.  Now! You may be asking yourself where did he get the name like “The Breed Studio”?. We’ll find out in the New Year. For more on  The Breed Studio and New Breed Events visit

Bey and CodeNine did an excellent job collaborating on the Infatuation EP Itunes, released on the day of love Valentine’s Day for all the lovers who were snowed in together over this past weeks snow storm. Infatuation! where Hip-hop meets that Oh! So! smooth and sensual R&B. CodeNine get’s a little sexy with us with one of my favorites Say “Yeah”  I love the way the beat just drops and releases its sexy vibe. What girl in her right mind would want to utter the word No!?

Such an intense passion and admiration for his music………Infatuation!

Bey and CodeNine also performed the new single Say “Yeah” at Milk Boy, Saturday February, 15, 2014 alongside other up and coming Philly artist. Halfro, Verbatum ‘Verb’ Jones and of course the one and only Hazie Blu was in the building cutting all the way up.

Haven’t seen Hazie Blu’s  Tony in a while, it was so good to see all of the guys this New Year. I must say the more and more these guys come together, the better they sound.  From the first moment my ears heard the sound of Hazie Blu back in February 2013 I was hooked. HBC ‘Hazie Blu Crew‘ were so proud of their brother CodeNine doing his thing and finally coming from behind the scenes and giving Philly a little taste of what’s to come. CodeNine is not only a guitarist and vocalist, he’s a songwriter/producer for many other up and coming Indie artists with acts like Jenn ‘Osaigbovo‘, Hazie Blu and many more…

I must say Bey knows what to do once he hits the stage. As always he has great energy and a crazy vibe that  gets the crowd going. If you’ve ever been to one of his shows you’ll see that Bey is in his element and he has fun with entertaining the crowd with his lyrical flow. Bey got my attention at Hazie Blu’s album release party, which yours truly co-hosted along with Will Simon.  One of my other favorite tracks on the Infatuation EP is ‘Hear Me Out’ now this track right here sounds like someone is trying to get something off their chest that they couldn’t form in words so they put it in this song. The beat!   CRaZy and Bey slays this track to the fullest. I was killi’N it in my livingroom listening to it too LOL!.

It’s not easy finding the right pieces to one’s creative puzzle…Bey and CodeNine are the perfect combo!! 

–Miss, LIV


CodeNine opens the door to his sensual side. If you watch him closely as plays he’s actually making  love to his guitar and if you like the sound of it as much as I do it will eventually entrap you and take you into a zone .  There are so many words he would say but he’d rather show you and ‘Demonstrate’ .  He has the ‘Stage Set’ giving his listeners an intense passionate session while he get’s completely lost in a zone, completely lost in his music. He’s so Infatuated!

Say Yeah! Performed LIVE at Milk Boy 2.15.14
