Miss Dew is a fresh face to the Orlando music scene, in her interview with Mean Jean and DJ MK she talks about competing in the Orlando Idol competition, which got her a golden ticket to the front of the line for her American Idol audition. She also talks about her two American Idol auditions, whether she’d audition for another TV singing competition, putting together he debut EP, how she came up with the name Miss Dew, and even sang a little Whitney for us.
Blue Kimble went from the NFL gridiron to the set of some of the biggest productions in the movie industry, and believe it or not it was all an accident. Talking to Blue during this interview one thing stood out to me, he was an extremely humble and down to earth dude. He’s been acting for less than two years, and has already been a part of such productions such as; The Hunger Games, The Fast & The Furious 5, and BET’s Being Mary Jane. We talk about all that in our interview with him, in addition to “thuggin’ in the kitchen,” and what types of roles he prefers to do.

Fusion is planned to be released this spring, make sure to stay tuned for more info on the project.
