“Completing this album has not been an easy task!” said Myers, “But the product is something I’m proud of and displays the true collaboration between genres.” “The Lion’s Den” offers everything from the song “Black Lives Matter” dedicated to the activists of today to a touching tribute to his grandmother Velma Sanders on the last track of the album.
Myers took a path that many independent artists are taking, he supported this project through the Crowdfunding site GoFundMe. Crowdfunding is the practice of raising small amounts of money from large numbers of people, typically via the internet. “I was told not to bother trying to crowdfund for a Jazz album because there was not enough support for the genre, so the pressure was really on!” Exceeding his goal of $3500, Myers used the money to help complete his project at House Studio DC. House Studio engineer Jake “Vicious” Grotticelli stated, “Aaron Myers is an enigmatic entertainer. From his writing, to his singing, to his playing and arranging, Aaron really took this project somewhere special. It is an amazing project, and I was honored to be involved in a small piece. It’s the kind of album where you will hear something new and great each time you listen.”
Teaming up with other area musicians, Myers reached across genre boundaries tagging noted soprano Aundi Marie Moore and rapper Pacman Slim to join him for his rendition of “I Can Recall” or “Spain” known instrumentally by others. “The Album is an experience waiting to happen from beginning to end” said Pacman Slim. “Aaron Myers is a fantastic artist and it’s truly an honor to be apart of this project” said Moore. Washington’s own Herb Scott, noted Saxophonist and founder of the Capitol Hill Jazz Jam whose featured on the project stated, “Aaron’s music is deeply rooted in the soulful gospel tradition that is the backbone of jazz and that’s why I like working with him. He’s so warm and inviting, just like his music.
“When you’re working with musicians you like, fun is only the beginning. Anything else that follows is pure magic” stated Myers. “The Lion’s Den” is set to be released digitally October 2nd on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay and other music streaming sites. Physical copies will be available in locations specified by his website.

Depression is real. As an artist, I live with it every day, and the operative word is “live.” It is not easy, and at times it seems as if I have no problems with the struggle. There are times when I feel on top of the world…for a moment. Then a tunnel surrounds me blocking out any affection or caring word I’ve ever heard from anyone else in my life. It becomes me at my most isolated, not selfish, state where although people are surrounding me, they have been blocked from my vision.

Twitter users got a Tuesday evening ring side view of a live Twitter Rumble between R&B Artists Chris Brown and Raz B. As Chris Brown was commenting on the children who would undoubtedly get a laugh at seeing him ice skate, Raz B was sending out some love to Rihanna (former girlfriend of Chris Brown). One tweet merged their two timelines that undoubtedly got the rumble started!
@razb2k nigga you want attention! Grow up nigga!!! Dick in da booty ass lil boy
One person mentioned in the original Tweet by Raz B has not entered this rumble, and one would think that age and maturity may be the reason why. While these to young artists were going at it, Eric Benet had only this to say
