Not Just an Ordinary Day

Today was an ordinary day just like all the rest of my days except I found myself cleaning my home ever more so than before and the funny thing about it is that I didn't know why!  I guess I was in that kind of mood and by it being Sunday, I had been playing gospel music all day long and then... read more

Who Is It

Well people keep asking me where did my inspiration come from to write the song Who Is It.  I continue to asnwer them by saying God and only God!  Who else would take a man who has had many up and downs, pick him up, dust him off and set his feet on a path to righteousness?  If you are a radio station and love good music, the check out Shameland his latest release.

The Release of" Who Is It"

It's been a long time coming but it was well worth the wait! To be able to announce the release of my first single "Who Is It" had me so excited I just want to jump and shout and that's exactly what I did!  Who would have thought a small town boy like me could pull it off!  We surveyed over 2,000, people and asked them to listen to the track and believe it or not, 98% of those folks sent us back a resounding YES, YES, YES, send it to the people!

I said yes, and reported back to the SHAMEL RECORDS..., LLC team and told them " I think we may have something here."  The team began to put together marketing schemes and stopped the presses on other projects to spend time on promoting the single.  This is a very good song my friends and we are trusting in God that the words in the song may turn a sinner away from the error of his/her way and save a soul from death and cover the multitude of sins (Nelson, 1985, The Open Bible, James, Ch.4: 20).

I just wanted to give a big shout out to God and my lord and savior Jesus for seeing me through the rough times and making them smooth and to all of my friends and family, thanks for the support.

You can purchase the song by just clicking on the hyperlink, http://www.shamelrecords.com  So in the meantime and between time, I'll holla!

SHAMEL RECORDS... Growth Is A Reality

SHAMEL RECORDS...  is growing by leaps and bounds!  Formerly know as Shamel Records... Sole Proprietorship is now SHAMEL RECORDS..., LLC.  When a member of the press asked Shamel aka Mark Perkins Founder and CEO, "In your opinion do you believe the label is growing to fast?" Shamel responded with a profound "NO!" "In my opinion it is not growing fast enough, with that in mind, I also believe in taking baby steps, but this move is certainly a step in the right direction."

Shamel said that paying attention to the details makes all the difference in the world and that he wanted to ensure that the consumers respect what the label expects from each and every artist signed to the label.  Simply put he said, which is a quality product that they can relate life experience to.

He goes on to say that Gospel music is just one division of the label.  Other divisions include R&B, Rock, Country, Hip Hop and Pop.  He himself is a producer/engineer, gospel artist; singer, song writer and performer.  He states, "my love for God is strong and my purpose in life is to serve God and follow in the ways and teachings Jesus!" "If I can win souls for God through Jesus Christ with this music ministry, God will bless the label, which in a sense is be a blessing to me because the label is a reflection of me."

The label has also established  a publishing company named ES-MARCO Publishing, LLC.  This company falls under the SHAMEL RECORDS..., LLC umbrella.  It is named after his son Marcos and daughter Alexa ES, thus the birth of ES-Marco Publishing was born.

Black Bald Man



Every time you look around, there goes another black man with his hair shaved down to his skull.  I don't know why so many of us are shaving off our hair!  Are we ashamed of the texture of our hair?  Is it to nappy or hard to comb?  Have we become so conditioned to the worlds perspective (militant) about long haired black men, (that weve forgot about the kid in us and (the Afro) that we crumble under pressure and shave it off instead of dealing with the stereotypes?  Well, I have something to say to black men.
