  • Eeee! Check out my sparkly new in ear monitors  from @stealthsonics 🤟🏽 Vocalists don’t get the chance to be excited about gear that often 😂  so I did a happy dance when these arrived. In ears are a touring essential and my last pair never really met the mark for me.  The fit wasn’t so good and I struggled to hear my low notes. They were a constant battle! I met the folks from #Stealthsonics at #namm and I was impressed  by their reasonably priced line of in ears.  These are a perfect fit and sound great🤟🏽🤟🏽can’t wait to try them out on tour, in the meantime I’ve been recording demos with them at home. Thank you so much @stealthsonics @killsoundprods ❤️❤️

  • I was already upset watching #ahmausarbery being shot. Then watching the #georgefloyd video both gutted and enraged me to the point that it’s all I can think about. If you were unaffected by the video of the life leaving George’s face, there’s something wrong with you. After forty odd years of my life, I think things have actually gotten worse.  If you don’t know, I am biracial. Growing up I experienced a great deal of racism. I watched my dad being racially profiled. Just two years ago I was racially profiled while on tour when two aggressive cops came to my hotel room because a front desk clerk told them a strange looking black woman with purple dreads seemed suspicious and must be a hooker. I don’t need sympathy for this...my point is that If someone that looks like me can be racially profiled so easily, imagine what black people go through on a daily basis and try to understand why there’s so much anger. It’s every dirty look, every “nigger” mumbled in their direction, every false accusation, every unwarranted pull over, all these videos of our brothers and sisters being murdered in cold blood building up to a boiling point.  I heard someone say that these riots and protests are a public mourning.  It gives me a little hope seeing so many different kinds of people mourning and protesting TOGETHER. THAT’S beautiful.  The Looting on the other hand, makes me sick to my stomach. If you’re participating in that, you are an opportunist. A man died for that Louis Vuitton bag and those Nike shoes you just stole. You don’t give a shit about George. And maybe those big businesses can recover...but some small businesses that barely survived coronavirus definitely won’t survive being vandalized and looted now. Man, free stuff is cool but you know what’s cooler? Using this horrible incident to make an actual difference in your community. @miiabenante and I have been talking about this all week, and she asked me why these pissed off people can’t go to school to be lawyers or officers and make difference and I thought that was  a pretty great idea :) be safe. Love you all.

  • Thirteen years ago today I graduated on the Dean’s List from Mortuary College! One of the best days of my life. I get a lot of DMs from you guys asking how to become a mortician.  It makes me happy when young people take an interest in the field, but not many people realize how challenging getting your degree in Mortuary Science is.  It’s anatomy and pathology, law, chemistry, thanatology, restorative art and so much more! A lot of my classmates didn’t even make it past the first semester of embalming lab...it’s extremely invasive. That said, working in the death industry has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I believe I was called to it and that it saved my life and if you feel called to it, you should give it a go! Just know that you will work your ass off and see a lot of things no one should have to see 🧐 what did you guys go to school for?

  • Ahhhh you guys look so awesome in my masks!! I love seeing your tags! Keep them coming! Most places have no entry without a mask signs up around here and I’m sure where you are to! I think wearing a mask covered in my art makes the situation a little more fun😂😍😍! I’ve got a few styles left in super limited quantities. I’ve personally been wearing my smoking rose every single day, I love it and I get so many compliments on it! Get yours at www.carlaharvey.com
