Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. (September 12, 2018) -  Eric Coble's new play "Swagger", developed by Palm Beach Dramaworks as part of the One Humanity Tour, captivated the sixth grade students at Watson B. Duncan Middle School. The piece and accompanying talk back served to strengthen the bond between young citizens and their local police officers by generating discussion and providing resources without taking a side on what is today a hot topic issue. "Swagger" delivers the same event from three points of view in a direct address format focusing on story and character relationships.

Kevin Gordon's Louisiana is a strange place. In his songs, it's a place where restless teens road trip to where the highway dead-ends at the Gulf of Mexico; a place where prisoners who are in for life compete in a rodeo in front of spectators; where a man can get lost in the humid afternoon and where religion may not signify hope; where the KKK greets a high school marching band and its African-American teacher along a parade route; where a post-ZZ Top show hang out outside a McDonald's reveals a hidden gun; where a Pontiac GTO gets stolen, ends up in a lake, and punishment takes precedence over remuneration; where half-Comanche folksinger Brownie Ford can escape death and proffer advice on staying real and free; where Jimmy Reed is the true king of rock & roll; and where rivers, never far away, carry secrets behind levees.

International recording artist Amaal releases “Not What I Thought” the first single off her forthcoming debut EP. The R&B influenced, bass thumping single is a gentle yet confident ballad about the end of a relationship. Hardly a new theme and yet, “Not What I Thought” unfolds as a salve for the question of how an intimate partner can become a stranger. 'It's about finally realizing the person you're in love with is not who they've represented themselves to be. That love quickly conjugates to the past tense.' – Amaal.
