Aspire To Inspire Locherz Knight la ss Mag Firstly, myself and Teddy would like to say hello and we are very proud to be British as you can see. We View life in a positive way, we know it’s not always sunshine and rainbows, but we believe that if you can change your thoughts, from the negative into a positive, your whole out look, and life in general will excel to the greatest heights. It doesn’t matter what you thought or did a year ago, a week ago, a day ago, and even a minute ago. Responding to what you are thinking and feeling, is NOW ! We always say, “what you think about, you bring about” so if you stay in that positive mind set, it will only do you good, and never stop. We know it’s not easy with day to day reality, but it can be done. As everything that has been invented and created throughout the history of mankind began with one thought. From that one thought, a way was made, and it manifested from the invisible into the visible, and the impossible to the possible. To make a difference in someone’s life, you don’t have to be brilliant, Rich, beautiful, or perfect. We just need to care. We were born to unite with each other, so always spread the love and aspire to inspire others, as to unite as one, will only make a better world for each and everyone one of us. If you replace every negative thought with a positive thought you will be amazed how suddenly good luck is attracted to you. Now your laughing that is unreal if it was that easy everyone would be happy. But here is the catch it is almost too difficult for you to do this. You try and suddenly for one day no matter how rotten your day is no matter who has been negative to you. Switch off, would you, if someone gave you a hot coal to carry around in the palm of your hands. No because it would burn you, so why carry around negativity towards someone who was nasty to you. Your thoughts of anger is not hurting them but it is effecting yourself. Because your thoughts become your energy and with an repelling aura , no good luck can be attracted to you. Spend a whole week letting negative thoughts go. Become free. Love always from the Knights of London. Be lucky, stay positive and spread the love. Stay positive and create your own happiness. 6 © Yelena Richy az ine cvh 1st C

Siiren Sire by Locherz Knight la ss Mag I am very proud to introduce you to a beautiful young lady and awesome Reggae Star Siiren Sire here in London. She is not just an exceptional singer, composer, dancer, she is genuinely a very down to earth person and here is my exclusive interview with her. Q&A Siiren, how old were you when your first started writing songs? “I started song writing from the age of 14 years of age. Even at that age it felt so comfortable and it felt like a burning desire to continue doing it. Later in my early twenties I entered into the recording studio for the first time and recorded some songs of a pop genre. After working with many different styles I finally stumbled upon a genre that I could immerse myself right into which was Reggae/Dancehall music. I found my sound in this style.” How would you describe your song writing? “Song writing for me is about growth, when I write I develop not just my craft, but I improve myself. Melody is very important to me as that’s what engages the listener, then the chorus is the money shot that hooks the ears of the listener. Once my producer has created a beat, those are the two ingredients I have got to add to the pot to make those 3 to 4 minutes unforgettable. I would like to eventually write for established artists. I am an independent artist and it’s great for us to get our music heard in another avenue. It can grow you a wider audience as an indie. I grew up listening to a range of diverse music and continue to today.” Which is your favourite genre? “Out of all the genres Reggae music excites me. It has no age range or gender it’s a sound for everybody who loves music. Its universal.” Tell us about your first single and latest album? “In 2013 I had my first worldwide release of my first single and Video titled ‘Skank It’ followed by a 3 track EP ‘Drop It Down Low’ swiftly followed by my album self-titled ‘Siiren’. Skank It reached number 6 in the music chart. In 2015 I took a year hiatus from music and writing. Then in early December of the same year I decided I wanted to go back into the studio to start work on a new album. I felt refreshed and was buzzing with new ideas. I wrote a song over that Christmas period and went back into the studio to lay down the vocals. This track is titled ‘Doppelganger’. This I to believe to be a very strong song and decided to shoot a video for it. This song carries a special message how we should as individuals shine in our own light. Have faith and self-belief in ourselves and not try to be like anyone else as sometimes you can be swayed to do .... Just Do You!! Doppelganger is due out for worldwide digital download release in July 2016.” Locherz Knight & Teddy - A Knight to Remember.

In 2015 I took a year hiatus from music and writing. Then in early December of the same year I decided I wanted to go back into the studio to start work on a new album. I felt refreshed and was buzzing with new ideas. I wrote a song over that Christmas period and went back into the studio to lay down the vocals. This track is titled ‘Doppelganger’.

If you were granted one wish to go back in time who would you like to meet, and why? “Bob Marley is my hero and he was one of the world’s most amazing Reggae artists, and in my opinion he still is till this very day . He stood for what he believed in, to treat people the way you would expect to be treated. The man’s music spoke volumes, Bobs music is universal. He also had amazing quotes which I live by. My favourite is this one: “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain”.” Who would you like to meet today, and why? “Oprah Winfrey, because she is one the most inspiring figures for all humanity. She is an individual who did not grow up with an easy life. But despite all what she had to endure each obstacle it had never stopped her to strive to success and to transform her life and the lives of others. Oprah is not selfish. She is a huge believer in universal law. Oprah’s philanthropy has developed and enhanced many people’s lives across the world.” If you could choose to come back in another life, who would you come back as? “I believe the life I am experiencing at this very moment is more than enough for me. And why? I believe in my motto ‘Live life. Enjoy it. Experience it.’ Once my journey here on this planet has come to an end I would like to have left my legacy and move on to the eternal realm to hopefully experience the next chapter.” If you could have a special power what would it be? “That’s very easy for me. I would be psychic. I know with a special gift like that, can come many burdens, but also can bring hope to you and others. And we all need hope in our lives as it keeps us moving forward.” Who would you like to thank for supporting your career? “I would like to thank the universe. She has never let me down, even in the trying times she has always pulled through for me. I know I can always rely on her.”

They were in the entertainment business. My father was a musician with the legendary band leader of the 50’s Xavier Cugat. My mother was into the theatre and growing up backstage to this world was easily for my attraction to the glamour.
