“Music and writing has helped me deal with adversity ruthlessly. Narcolepsy and Cataplexy has been a difficult experience for me to live with, but my creativity gives me purpose, drive, healing, ambition, direction; and suddenly, life has a new meaning to me. One being an Inspiration and the other to Give BACK”.  – Anthony Everest

“Anthony is a dynamic performer whose sound is characterized by a hybrid of jazz vocals, blues beats and scatological rifts, indeed a soul singer with an acoustic twist” –

(Podium Magazine Review).

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Shade’- Really by Àrèmúorin

Wrote this post, almost, in a fit of a mild fury ..’ Someone, recently, threw shade, at me – saying …

“You are always smooth”

So, excuse you. Am I supposed to be ghetto, demon possessed, and always acting like I’m on crack and weed, because I’m black? I don’t think so. That was shade – coming from a black, older, supposed to be, mature, woman; and I was, insulted, quite frankly. Jesus I know, who the f**k are you?

If I am smooth, or always smooth, its the God In Me: Boom! X And, when I do it through God, it will always be smooth ..’

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Open Mics’ – Last Night by Aremuorin

Carol asked me – ‘How did last nite go? was it fun?’

MercyfulGrace Blog

Nope. Drab – Never got on and my Yanky friends where not impressed  as it was their last night. They left, initially, un beknown, to me, but l lured them back – excitedly, in high spirits. Seriously – poor organisation, was an operative word. If I reviewed this on my blog – it will be unforgivable. Now that I have decided to mention, it – I’ve withheld a particular name and venue on this occasion, as this is not just an isolated case. Happens here and there.

Sometimes its great – but occasionally you get dross; like this. Worst – was favouritism. It’s shambles. Why have a singers – name list when you won’t follow it. People turn up an hour before the show – to sign up, and you ignore – them and call your friends on, when they casually walk in. It is disrespectful.

Not only did those people spend their resources there; spending their valuable time and money, before their friends arrived, they also are important, too – and could choose to spend their time and money elsewhere. Also, singers charged an entrance fee is dire. Pure slavery. So, artistes are effectively – paying to play. Now, this is just wrong on all levels. Charge the punters, but don’t charge the artistes – bringing the free entertainment to you.

Also, some of the musicians where just blagging – on some songs, as they did not know the progressions – which left the energy and night flat in most parts  …’ It was nail biting and cringing at times.

Dull over singing and over playing, and over all an unimpressive atmosphere. I wish I did not bring my friends there. They did not like it one – bit. I felt uncomfortable – myself.

When amateurs run around like pros – the result you get is mediocre. And swearing on the mic repeatedly, is unnecessary; it’s really unprofessional and self sabotage – when trying to get people to have a good night, or stay.

They need this feed back to fix up.

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘My Faith’ – Can Move Mountains by Aremuorin

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace

2 Cor 5:7 :: For we live by faith, not by sight.

Had an interesting conversation, today, with an unbeliever. It was surreal. I learned more about, myself, and others and how my faith – is misinterpreted.

Gave me room, to share a point or two, on how they might have misread the signs, as this may be about, their own, fears and insecurities, being projected elsewhere. It was great thou. Don’t know what brand new lies the enemy has been spinning on you today – but shake them loose ..’ I’m feeling fly, and I’m on a supernatural high.

Didn’t know my faith had so much power. Even when I am alone, I am not alone. I have angels on watch guard – following me, everywhere I go. It’s good to know God personally, and be covered by his loving graces. 2 Cor 5:7 :: For we live by faith, not by sight. ‪#‎TryJesus‬ ‪#‎ILoveAllMyFriends‬ ‪#‎TrustMe‬ ‪#‎IDontJudge‬ ‪#‎Others‬ ‪#‎Love‬‪ #‎IsFreelyGiven‬ – Amen

MercyfulGrace.com - Devil Your Loose!

Spiritual eyes are a wonderful thing ..’ Liberating and enlightening. It’s just good to know because, when you know the truth – it truly, sets you free !!! I thank God for this gift, this blessed burden, and duty. He could have chosen a stone over me. The way to see through a contrived smile – is to have one of these.
You know it is – when you can look at trouble in the eye, and say, ‘today you are defeated because you lost your stronghold’. It never, stops to amaze how the oppressed feel they can become victor through more oppression and manipulation. Come to think of it :: it’s nothing, but ignorance.
Bad Religion - MercyfulGrace.com
London is a great city but also full of not nice people. I’ve learned with time, its everywhere. Fake opportunist agendists. I guess it’s another paradox of life. But we leave them to it. I don’t need negative energy around-me. If you are one; be sure, I’ll uproot you, quicker than a hurricane! People who put other people down clearly have an issue. Not just with the person they put down, but over all, with their own reality of self. May the love of God adorn you today with his grace, loving kindness and more riches than you can fathom.

Psalm 32:7 :: 7 You are my hiding place, you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.

Isn’t this just beautiful. There are secrets in God. You just have to know, where, when and how to find them ..’ Get to know him! He is real. My enemies, ask me bitterly, with ensnaring evil hearts. Sabotaging! Even, some xtain’s, loose the plot. They ask me – how I do it, all alone.
Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com
This is how. I believe. Jesus Is the ‘Son of God’, and I can do, all things, through him; who strengthens me ..’ So whatever, it is that you are going through, lay it all at the alter, at his feet – (figuratively) and focus on him. Jesus said, its finished, at calvary. So, what do I care.
Have a great week!

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘MercyfulGrace Live’ – From the 1st Night by Àrèmúorin

Run To Love EP

MeryfulGrace Records

Totally forgot to do this entry. 

DSCF1740

Forgive me. So, the first night went a little like this. Tamed. Those who needed to be there, were there. Loved ones, friends, fan’s and new folks. More like a family affair, where everyone, was welcomed with open – arms.

Give Back Charity Record

We had a good night, singing, eating, drinking and some merry. Wasn’t a full house, but – the spirit of love and togetherness filled the air. There’s no bull here. It is exactly what it is.

Live music has always been an essential part of this evenings event, and if you doubt, come down yourself, to explore. It’s the place to be, midweek, just before your weekend kicks off, with a bang, or however you want to spend it. This night should, and would eventually, give you the boost you need – to keep you motivated, to see another week, through.
DSCF1938   DSCF1724 DSCF1721    DSCF1738
We performed songs from “Run To Love – EP” – the charity give back record, plus all the other stuff from ‘Follow Your Dreams’ :: A good measure of covers were thrown in too – at the last minute, as requested.

Give Back Charity Record

Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston made the cut ..’ Some how Billie Holliday was left on the cutting floor, but she’s back next week – for sure. For she is the first lady of Jazz and we love – too much of Jazz and good old Soul at MercyfulGrace Live. So, we do pay tribute to her, among the other greats, in between the old and new original songs!
MercyfulGrace Blog

‘I think there’s some football on wed – 26th, Nov, 2014 – but the show kicks off as usual, after – around half nine or so. Bear with us. Was just informed on that one. Gratias! (We gotta support our community in keeping in theme with giving back theme)

At MercyfulGrace Live – we make the most of what we have. Love, life, togetherness, generosity, people, friends, reflection, merry, endearment, and more of all that good stuff, where it came from.
Perhaps, this is not your thing. It’s all good, too. You can always opt to be objective while you are there. Personally, all that glitters is still, not – apparently gold, while many people are smiling, but deep down inside broken. Here’s the thing! That’s okay too. As for challenges – alike. That’s life.
MercyfulGrace.com Diaries
There is nothing beautiful that does not advert through such – adversity. The greatest of them all would tell you the same. It’s why we keep it positive and real – Always! Many are called, but only a few are chosen. Each to their own! Who are we to judge. Who am I to judge? Who are you, to do the same?
MercyfulGrace.com
Regardless of who you confide in, at night, when you are at ease, peaceful;y with yourself – this one is very true. We’re on a mission – focused, and locked on tight. On target. Love! God is Love* and there is Nothing Above Love*.
See You*
