Check out this interview of Connie Lim on one of the local NBC LA segments. She discusses how she went from Pre-Med to Pre-Law to Pre-Business at UC Berkely before finally admitting to herself that music is where her heart is at. They go in depth on a number topics including some of the serious subject matter that can be found in some of her music. The interview lasts just over 10 minutes and includes a live performance. Connie is definitely an intriguing artist and I look forward to hearing what her EP dropping soon will sound like.
This is the same guy who interviewed dumbfoundead, and the same production qualities that plagued that interview are still present here (bad sound quality, slightly awkward character, etc).

Kina Grannis, who recently wrapped up her East Coast tour, had the opportunity to perform on national tv on The Early Show on CBS a couple days ago. What an incredible opportunity though the sound set up wasn’t the best… sounded a bit thin and flat. She performed a couple songs including her hit song “Valentine” which you can watch below. She’s an incredible talent and we’re ecstatic to see her gain more national exposure.
You can always watch the Q&A interview session after the break.
A month ago they dropped the trailer but the full MV for “I’mma Be the Best” was released today. Michelle Martinez features and and is a great addition to the song, giving the track a lot of soul. This is probably my favorite release from 454 thus far since it’s the first track with some real content. MMA fighter Cung Le makes an extended cameo in this well made video. I think most of you will enjoy this one too.
454 Life Entertainment presents the official video “I’mma Be The Best” by Thai Viet G featuring Michelle Martinez! Directed by GINOROCKS of 454 Films. Special appearance by Cung Le.
