Is the idea of a post-racial America eliminating race from the equation all together? The short answer is yes. Unfortunately, when people start touting the idea of living in a colorblind society, color begins to disappear in ways that are problematic. Goff brings up the point that; “Often people pride themselves on being color blind…and often when people use that language what ends up happening is the color disappears, from the equation, from the conversation, from the room.”

As Goff expresses; “We shouldn’t have to not see each others color, we should be able to see each others color and not have that be a problem.”


Saint Records presents Saint Heron – a collaborative compilation album featuring 11 independent artists telling their unique stories on one innovative platform. Saint Records was designed to give new and ingenious artists a space to create their music and circulate their art – in turn becoming a haven for R&B lovers and listeners to discover music free of marketplace politics. The intent of the album, and the label at large, is to feature, highlight and align a new movement of contemporary, genre-defying R&B visionaries, which will serve as a segue into the diverse evolution of these independent artists as they share their voices and words as only they can – through pure, unadulterated music.

Do I edit while I’m creating? Naw. It just doesn’t work for me that way. There’s a talent to that. There’s a talent to creating something that doesn’t compromise you and that is accessible and still really creative and beautiful. Every now and then, you can hear someone who’s able to do that and that changes the course of what’s happening. We all follow along.
