Christian is proud to manage the talent of a strong Asian-American female voice Heesun Lee. She has lived a uniquely American life with a multitude of influences being adopted into a Chinese American family and listening to her favorite US hip hop artists growing up.  Her diverse influences and experience makes her tagline: “Breaking Stereotypes” all the more real, as she encourages listeners to follow their passions.

#WiretapWednesday: Simon Tam – The Slants on Tour

WiretapWednesday Simon Tam of The Slants gives us an update on their Supreme Court case and on their tour promoting their album The Band Who Must Not Be Named. We also discussed song meanings, some song tackled some serious feels and one of the songs is secretly about Jessica Jones and Luke Cage!

(gunsully note: I didn’t edit out awkward moment when I made a joke that didn’t land… podcasting gold right there! lol)
