What is Misfit Tunes

Misfit Tunes is an organization

dedicated to

promoting domestic as

well as international Indie and/or

little know artists from all genres of

music to the awaiting masses. We

use several vehicles to promote the

artists’ work, such as:

Misfit Tunes’ blog, which can be

found at www.misfittunes.blogspot.

com , receives thousands of views

daily from all around the country.

We also boast international visitors

from places like Canada, the UK,

Ireland, and Jamaica, to name a

few. We update the blog weekly

with new music and videos.

Why does Misfit Tunes do it

We do it for two main reasons:

1. We do it for the LOVE of the

music. The current top 40 selection

leaves Misfit Tunes wanting

more from music, which is why we

promote indie and/or little known

artists. The music industry has

become so saturated with clones

that the music has gotten lost in

translation or merely forgotten. We

believe it our duty to keep good

music relevant!

2. We do it to change the industry.

It is our belief that the industry has

become too much about money and

no longer about the art of creating

music. With the current state of

the economy and the advent of so

many free internet tools to make

music, it’s now the perfect time to

usher industry change.

Now that you know who Misfit

Tunes are and what we do, we

would like to invite you to build a


wonderful working relationship.

Again our services are completely

FREE of cost for artist. We would

appreciate you sending us your

music, videos, upcoming events,

pictures, and/or any other information

you would like us to share. By

sending an email to Misfit Tunes at

submissions@misfittunes.com. We

request that you to ask your fans,

followers, and supporters to support

Misfit Tunes. By increasing

our supporters, we can reach more

people. The more people we can

reach the bigger Misfit Tunes will

grow. Our growth will ensure more

people will be exposed to your music,

which in turn, will potentially

increase your fan base.

We would also like to request any

promotional merchandise you can

spare, as we would like to begin

running contests to get people to

engage more with the artists as

well as Misfit Tunes. The more

people we get to engage with Misfit

Tunes, the better we can serve the

indie market. We fully understand

Misfit Tunes need the support of

artists to reach our full potential as

we are nothing without the music!

What is your government


Darius Wolley

Where were you born/raised

I was born in DC, and later

raised in College Park, MD.

Both environments come to

play in my music.

What are your influences

The world, its people and the

dynamics of relationships

influence me. A lot of what I

see and experience daily goes

into the thought process when

crafting a song. Musically,

I’m influenced by a little of

everything from rock, blues,

edm, soul, gospel and of

course hip-hop.

How did you come up with

your stage name

Haha, my stage name. People

still call me Ace and I’m good

with that but I decided to use

my real name in effort break

down the wall between Batman

and Bruce Wayne. I feel

like artist often shun their true

identity behind an alias and

end up getting lost in keeping

up a facade.

What is your most recent


My most recent project was

Orchids EP. It’s a connected

piece based on love, sex, and

the difficulties in relationships.

Orchids was released

just before Valentine’s Day

with the goal of impacting

people during that time and

creating a relationship between

the music and those

empathetic feelings. But, the

next project To Whom Much

Is Given, will definitely be

opposite Orchids on the spectrum.


Why are you a performer

I’m a performer because I

love telling my story and

vibing with the people who

relate. You definitely feel a

rush putting your heart and

soul into a performance and

the crowd gives just as much


If you were not making music

what would you be doing

I have no idea lol. When I

was a kid and people would

ask, “What do you want to be

when you grow up” I would

make stuff up that they’d

want to hear like a lawyer or

a dentist or something, but

I honestly didn’t know. All

I ever really knew is I loved

music. Once, I figured out this

is what I wanted to do, I’ve

been on it since.

How would you describe your


I like to think of my sound

as the score of young urban

America. It’s very impulsive,

emotional and often misguided.

This is why I’m comfortable

jumping from a jazzy

sexual record like Orchids

to an intense menacing track

like Reminisce. I try to add

different elements to change

the dynamic of a song. We all

feel different ways at different


What are your goals

The goal is to impact my people,

tell their story, and bring

new light to our plight. I personally

want to make timeless

music that allows you to live

in the moment (ironic ain’t it

lol). I want to be someone my

city, my family, and my fans

are proud of, someone they’d

ride for. I want to make records

that are big not only

Place orders at:

Misfit Tunes’ Marketplace




nationally but also in places

where they don’t even speak

English. As far as the accolades,

I strive to be one of the

illest songwriters, point blank.

It’s deeper than rap!

Where do you see yourself

this time next year

This time next year I see myself

emerging out of the city

into larger markets. I see a lot

of traveling and late nights in

my future lol. A very demanding

fan base to keep me busy

and new sounds and trends


What’s next for you

Next up, To Whom Much Is

Given. Soon you’ll understand.

What is your definition of


Success is me getting my music

received by the world. Being

able to provide for those

who have done so for me.

How will you know when you

have “made it” That national

stage, household name, a

grammy or two lol.

How many live performances

have you done

My best performance to date,

It was the perfect the storm

so to speak. The levels were

good, excellent crowd participation

and with a drummer

backing me up my energy was

through the roof. My worst


performance was the exact opposite.

The levels were horrible,

the track was a lot higher

than my mic and my song selection

was off for the crowd.

Lesson learned is to have back

up performance tracks, never

know the situation of a venue

or even the crowd so be prepared.

What does your lyrics say

about you/your character

I hope they say I’m a stand

up guy; I speak for those

who don’t have a voice. I

refuse surrender that voice

based on this position I’m


Do you love your music

I have tough love for my

music. I am way more critical

of it than anyone else

could ever be. But I do love

it, I think about it all day,

everyday. I stay up late most

nights listening, critiquing,

writing, and recording. I

get anxious about it, I get

nervous about it, and its

all done to make the best

product with my message in

mind. I will and have spent

countless time, effort and

money on my music.

Do you have a team behind


My team includes anyone

who ever listened, bought

and/or supported my music.

What is your mission What

kind of impact if any do you

want your music to have on

your fans

The mission is to inspire, provide

a voice and an outlet. I

want my music to provide the

soundtrack for urban America.

I want my fans to relate one of

my songs with a situation or

event in their life.

No Reckless Internet

Posting better

known as No R.I.P.

is a movement started and

led by entertainment mogul

and rapper Waka Flocka’s

mother, Debra Antney. Ms.

Antney and her family have

had documented turbulent relationships

with several blogs

and other media outlets which

have sensationalized stories

to garner popularity for their

site as well as to drive traffic

to the site. These tumultuous

relationships cost Ms Antney

her twenty-two year old son

Caodes “KayO” Scott.

During the 2013 Christmas

Holiday season the stresses

and pressures of the world

forced KayO to do the only

thing he knew to ease the

pain and end his own life.

KayO’s kind heart often wept

due to the malicious, reckless,

and thoughtless people

who spread vicious rumors as

well as fueled harmful gossip

about not only himself but

his mother and other family


Ms. Antney is determined

her son’s silenced voice be

heard by the world! She also

hopes to speak for the millions

of people living through

the same storm while encouraging

positive change in

not just media but also in the

Global Online Community.

“In every test there is testimony.

Through all adversity


there is a lesson to be learned.

And in cleaning up the mess

around us often times you’ll

find a message.” For Ms.

Antney and the supporters

of the No R.I.P. movement

the message is simple… NO



What It Means to Pledge No


* KayO never supported the

saying “Rest in Peace” because

he believed that people

lived on in their spirits

forever. Instead, he would

say “Long Live” to whoever

transitioned on. In loving

memory of Caodes “KayO”

Scott, the No R.I.P. movement

will take on a life of its

own and continue. No R.I.P.


* When you gossip and

spread rumors and recklessly

post about people’s lives, you

are speaking death - killing

their spirits, killing their reputations,

killing their relationships,

killing their hope and

so much more. Stop speaking

death. No R.I.P.

* We are afforded the rights

of free speech, freedom of the

press, etc. However, we also

have a humane responsibility

to each other. As media, we

encourage all bloggers and

other members of the media

to take the No R.I.P. pledge

and post responsibly on your

site; report responsibly on

your shows. As a community,

care for one another. Be

mindful that words do hurt

and can cause damage. Focus

on the positive, not the negative.

Focus on the truth, and

not the gossip and the rumors.

Stop the reckless, hurtful and

destructive gossip. Whether

you are media or the general

public, please post responsibly.

No Reckless Internet

Posting! No R.I.P.

If you are a blogger, media

entity or personality, or other

member of the media, we

invite and encourage you to

take the No R.I.P. pledge. We

simply ask those blog and

media sites that take the No

R.I.P. pledge to download

the official No R.I.P. logo

and post it to your website

and social media pages - this

logo placement will serve as

a visible badge which lets the

public know that your site is

one that has pledged to post
