Throughout recorded history, we created a world of competition based in fear and limitation, and maintain it through programming from entertainment, news, education, religion and social divisiveness. We’re taught to be part of the ‘real world’, we must choose a side. But there is a growing movement where people consciously create a better world through cooperation, sharing and building on similarities.
The mission of Gen-Ray Records is to affect the intentional selection of entertainment as a tool for personal growth and global transformation. We collaborate with organizations and composers from all over the world to create and share life-affirming music. Today, the song “We the People” is featured on ConsciousLifeNews.com.
Conscious Life News is committed to delivering timely, relevant and leading edge news within the alternative spectrum of information that is critical to each and every individual on planet earth, with the goal of assisting each individual with all the tools they need to live fully, consciously and responsibly.

Success is indeed a popularity contest and that can’t be truer than in the 21st Century music business. With listener support, last September I won a trip for two to New York City for a consultation with NBC executive Donna Introcaso, Sheryl Crow’s manager Pam Wertheimer and marketing professional Nina Frye. We stayed at the world famous Roosevelt Hotel, saw the sights, received validating advice and made invaluable connections to distribute empowering entertainment by ‘tude Vox Ro.
I need your support again.
I was pre-interviewed by April & Ajay Matta from the internet TV show “Spiritually Raw”, "Where Spirits Meet Skeptics and Consciousness Connects" for a short discussion about the power of entertainment to affect thought, shape words and incite action, and the importance of intentionally selecting life affirming programming. With your help, I can win a full interview, introducing thousands of new listeners to this powerful tool for personal growth and global transformation.
For thousands of years, populations across the globe were spoon-fed news and entertainment that supported an elite agenda of conformity, perpetual war and economic collapse. Now with the internet, every one of you has the power to affect mass distribution of music that supports co-creating a world of cooperation and prosperity.

Darian Counts invited 'tude Vox Ro back on his DetroitLive Radio show at UDetroit Cafe in Harmonie Park, Detroit to continue discussing empowering music. Producer John LeBang scheduled it for March 6, 2012. When the co-host unexpectedly couldn't make it that day, 'tude Vox Ro stepped in as guest co-host, discussing a wide variety of current events from her unique perspective and had a GREAT time.

As you know, I’ve dedicated my career to creating a brand of entertainment to empower and motivate people to achieve dreams. With your help, I won the “Daytime with Donna” favorite musician contest by submitting “Until My Dreams Come True”, written by Rich (iOD!NE) Ramsey and me. People from all over the world visited the site to register support. Thank you!
The prize was a trip for two to New York and a meeting with a celebrity management team. I had a great time in New York to meet Donna Introcaso, Nina Frye of “Daytime with Donna” and Pam Wertheimer (manager to Sheryl Crow). Donna is an accomplished and well connected member of the NBC family, launching her dream to provide inspirational radio. Nina is a sales and marketing professional, dedicating her expertise to create empowering entertainment to an international audience. Pam is a successful artist development professional with a long list of credits. I was honored to perform live for these remarkable women and greatly appreciate their advice and direction. See pictures and add your comments here. I look forward to continued collaboration with this like-minded show.
In other news, I’ve returned to the stage for live performances. On Monday I played a short set at 1001 Nights Restaurant and Lounge in Sterling Heights to an enthusiastic audience. I had a great time and will be doing more live performing work from this point forward.
I also joined an original rock opera, “Soul Struck Lightning” by JLebang just over a month ago. It is a vampire parable about personal empowerment with a fantastic cast and rockin’ band. I was fortunate to have connected with this group just before a role opened up. We have some promotional gigs lined up for early November in Detroit and Battle Creek.

Thank you for intentionally selecting empowering entertainment!
Many people know Detroit as the Motor City and for Motown Records, long passed away into the halls of history. Economic collapse hit our city and suburbs years before the rest of the country and world felt a middle class eroding. Labor moved to non-union shops in far-away places beginning in the 1980s. Since then, we’ve experienced a slow drip of people and investment, wage stagnation and decline as well as property values plummeting, starting in 2006. Before the global economic crisis hit the news, Michigan experienced 14% unemployment rates as residents clamored to leave the state for a job. The official unemployment rate is now at 11.2% and ranking 49 out of 51 states and the District of Columbia. Auto makers now hire union employees at $14 an hour rather than $28 and employers often pay commission only or hire entry-level people. The pool of candidates declined for job offered citing “overqualified” as the reason swells. We’ve been in national news for corruption in government and take-over of public offices by unelected appointments who are not accountable to the public. One in every 417 households is in foreclosure, ranked 7th highest in the country.
So you’d think we are a city of doom and gloom – but you would be wrong. Perhaps because of the dismal state of employment, many people are finding their passion and investing in creating their own career. Many intelligent, educated and experience people are reevaluating their lives and following their dream. We are a Phoenix Rising, reclaiming the innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial endeavors that put us on the map of world attention. We are changing our line of thinking and taking action to achieve our goals.
Yesterday I was on a live radio interview with Darian Counts at the University of Detroit’s radio station, UDetroit. We met at UDetroit Cafe, a Media Cafe in the heart of Downtown Detroit's Entertainment District where he discusses politics, religion, all the sex you want to talk about and local talent. Darian owns Detroit Live Magazine and Detroit Live Radio – and is hiring. Show producer John LeBang is multi-talented, also producing an uplifting rock opera called “Soul Struck Lightning” that he wrote, directs and plays lead role. Thank you to Darian for having me as a guest and John for inviting me. You can watch the video taped interview HERE.
It is true that we have been hit a major blow to our once-thriving economy here in Metro-Detroit, but we haven’t lost our spirit. Like the vacant lots we turn into organic farms, Metro-Detroit residents are turning economic collapse into a new way to prosperity. We’ve removed the debris of our fallen lives and are intentionally creating our own vision of the future.
Thank you for voting me Favorite Musician in the

It seems clear to me that the government no longer works in the best interest of every day people. Elected officials are in bed (sometimes literally) with corporate rulers of the planet and their agents. Perhaps out of fear or helplessness, they fail to fulfill their function as representatives of a self governing people. The masses are divided among fabricated differences to tear each other apart over intentionally created problems, running to more government control for solutions. This is called fascism.
We are at the verge of a monumental time in human history. It takes everyone working together to become empowered and right the wrongs committed against us. That can only happen when we come together from the fabricated labels that divide us for conquer. Republicans, Democrats, executives, workers, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Pagans and non-believers alike are part of the solution as soon as we come together.

If you’re like most people in the United States, you’re working 60 or more hours a week and taking home less spending power. In addition to the past decade of wage stagnation, prices of goods and services necessary to sustain life have continued rising. Although the inflation rate is under 2%, consumers’ ability to purchase has decreased over time specifically because of what is now called “quantative easing”. That’s where the Federal Reserve prints money and lends it to banks for them to decide whether or not to lend it to business and individuals. This injection of money into the system is intended to stimulate the economy to return to prosperity. When the money is used for long term investment, reinvigorating enthusiasm and hope, this process can indeed be like a shot of adrenalin to a shock victim.
The reason we can print unlimited supply of dollars is because we no longer use gold or other uniform standard by which to establish value. It’s like pledging a drawing of your home as collateral for the loan. The drawing, while looking good on paper, is worth what the holder thinks its worth. If you happen to be a famous artist, you can command big bucks for throwing paint on a canvass. But if you are like most of us, no matter how talented you are, after two weeks on the fridge, the drawing of your house is fit for the recycle bin. This is called the fiat money system.
Gen-Ray Records just released a music video to explain and entertain. Watch "Fiat Greed" HERE.
Hey-hey. Happy 2011. My first learning curve completed this year is how to make a video. If you are or know someone who finds today's job market wanting, check out this video at the Music Videos page of this site. "Until My Dreams Come True" is a song of celebration and gratitude for the ability to control individual perspective and choice, delivered in a Rock style. It's about knowing what you can do to change your circumstances and doing it but also finding a way to enjoy life, despite the hardship, doubt and fear.
