Do You Know What Today Is...?


Happy 2nd anniversary to Kairos. I'm not gonna get sappy. Just grateful for God & all the things He taught me while creating this album. Thank you to everyone who supported with your time, efforts, money, voice, everything. Thank you. If you haven't heard the album yet...


Later tonight I'll be on twitter sharing Kairos stories & facts. Please follow me @armondwakeup. Also, feel free to share your own Kairos stories. What the album did for you, what you think it meant. How you think it stands today.
Finally. To celebrate, here's a previously unreleased song. "This Is Kairos II (The Kairos Manifesto (Remix)". Produced by Doc. Clock Radio Speakers fans will recognize this. Peep the 2nd verse. Peep the ending. Peep the song. Thank you.

Armond WakeUp - "Soul Glo (The Kairos Exeprience)" spoken word LIVE @ The Art of Storytelling 3/15/15



Sometimes I miss being an artist. Simply wanting to be heard. A few years ago, I worked 2 full time jobs & still rocked open mics 3-4 nights a week for over a year. I wasn't worried about the logistics of music; mulling over "what makes sense", the branding, the creative microscope (self imposed & from your audience), I didn't have to make a sincere effort to not be dismayed by the politics, before iTunes charts, the press coverage, the jealousy, the perception, the presentation, the nitpicking, I could go on.

Sunday I returned to one of the venues that stirred my love for artistic expression (thank you Searius Add). Ministry is birthed from love & passion, but it can become routine & lose its power. Like any relationship, you gotta work intently to keep it & grow it. I propped my phone up against a book & captured this Kairos moment. Its not pretty, but getting what you need is more important than how you look while getting it. #ThisIsKairos
