If Detroit were Heaven Album

in WAE Music by

In the fall of 2010 I began working on the ‘If Detroit were Heaven’ album. It started from my writing of the ‘If Detroit were Heaven’ song. I wanted to make a song edifying the Black history, culture, and classic destinations throughout Detroit. I used this song to provide balance for my ‘Teddy Bears tied up to Trees’ song from my inaugural ‘Preaching to the Choir’ album.

A collective commitment of talented artists, long conversations, and hard work produced ‘If Detroit were Heaven.’ It’s my best and most complete work as an artist. The album explores a series of subject matter centered around my belief in self, Detroit, and philosophy. The music is a gumbo of sound accented with impressions of Hip-hop, Jazz, Electronic, and Soul rhythms. Producers Ian Sherman and Engineer Lumumba Reynolds truly brought to life a dynamic work of art. Including the amazing album cover by my friend, producer, and an inspiration for the album, Sterling Toles.

Detroit is Different Podcast with Phillip Cooley

in Detroit is Different Podcast by

I welcomed guest Phillip Cooley on the Detroit is Different podcast. Cooley is the owner of Slows Bar B Q, and a staunch Detroit advocate. Phillip’s story was very intriguing. We share a blind faith, and tireless love for the city.

We discussed his move to Detroit 12 years ago from Chicago. He didn’t find work here for months, but found creativity. Cooley’s travels across the world as a male model has put him in many places, but he’s felt, thought, and believed Detroit is his best home. Cooley’s visions for his artistic, business, and social purpose have been inspired by Detroit. – A house party he had when he first moved here sparked a jam session of hip-hop emcees, jazz saxophonist, key players (on his Mother’s piano), and him on guitar. That moment has committed him to Detroit since.


In the interview we cover his love for Prince, family, and developing business with a social/ community/ and creative mission. Listen in and listen up to this episode of the Detroit is Different Podcast!
