DENVER, CO – A man who has found peace in the acoustic sounds of a guitar and the meditative creation of his music, Royce DeZorzi is truly an interesting musician. Self-taught and connected to the nature around him, DeZorzi’s music has found a home between introspective and expressive.
DeZorzi’s music career began with a guitar left to him by his late brother. “I’ve always loved music,” he explained. “But I didn’t pick up the guitar until after my brother died.” He learned the basics from a bandmate of his brother, who refused to buy the guitar when DeZorzi attempted to sell it.
From that point, in the isolation of rural Colorado, DeZorzi fell in love with old records and the orchestral possibilities of the acoustic guitar. Despite turning to a more synth-based sound while living in Los Angeles during the COVID-19 pandemic, DeZorzi returned to Colorado, the comfortable isolation of nature, and the acoustic guitar. It was at that point that he went on to create his latest album, Denver.
“The album is made up of meditations of the time and experiences that have shaped me in the last few years,” DeZorzi explained. Denver is a collection of tracks created as he meditated on his life, while returning to the comfortable home that is his acoustic guitar. “I would just sit down and play,” he said. “It would all just gradually come together.”
One of the songs on Denver that DeZorzi found to be the most personally impactful was the track “Reseda”. This song looks back onto the stressful and emotionally exhausting time in which DeZorzi had just relocated to Los Angeles. The point where he was still adjusting to it all. “It took a lot of time to get this to where it is,” he explained. “When listening to this song, I can picture exactly what it feels like to be there again.”
DeZorzi’s hope with Denver is that his audience is able to listen to the album and get the same experience as he gets with “Reseda”. The project is filled with emotion, honesty and sensitivity and by putting that into the world, he shares a soundtrack to our collective moments of vulnerability.
Following the release of Denver, DeZorzi is set on continuing to share his music through upcoming live performances, experimentation into new styles and outlets, and future releases of his music. This artist has an incredible future ahead of him and it would truly be a mistake to miss out on the gorgeous work he has coming up.
Make sure to stay tuned in to Royce DeZorzi on various platforms for new music,
Douglas Parson Jr! It’s more than selling homes it’s cultural empowerment through real estate assets
The value of the property you possess will never decrease. A new car’s depreciating value is one example of an investment that could leave you with little to nothing of value. Other examples include investments in the stock market, which can go down to zero in value. You may expect your money to go up in value in the real estate market regardless of whether you invested it in a residential or commercial property. For me it’s about helping build a community of generational wealth, and sustainability. Celebrities and musicians have the ears of the culture, so I became a celebrity realtor. I didn’t do it for fame, I did it to inspire, and motivate as many people as I could through selling homes to famous people. Famous people have large followers who look up to them. Maybe one of my celebrity clients could motivate someone to take a different route with their resources or motivate them to get into the world of investment through real estate. I was able to close a real estate deal for multi-platinum music producer ATL Jacob recently. These deals give the youth hope that anything is possible when you believe in something, and you do the work to make it happen.
Subculture of giving: it’s a lifestyle Traditionally, philanthropy has been thought of as something that the rich fund, the middle class volunteers for, and the poor and needy receive. But philanthropic giving is more than just money. It is a process of creatively giving to others, and in so doing, fulfilling our basic human need to connect with our own humanity. Regardless of socioeconomic status or age, every person can cultivate a philanthropic lifestyle, one that teaches them to live, reach, and stretch themselves in a way that fills them with purpose, love, empathy, and compassion.

He has worked as an actor, movie producer, music video director and producer, celebrity booking agent, music industry adviser, public speaker, and entrepreneur. In the years between 2008 and 2022, he worked in shadows in the film, television, and music industries. He has collaborated with a wide array of people, including company owners, actors, actresses, musicians, entrepreneurs, brands, celebrities, investors, big record labels, independent record labels, production firms, producers, politicians, and directors.

He has experience working with a wide range of clients, including startups, Fortune 500 firms, tech startups, and more. Although he was born in Ohio, he spent his formative years in both his hometown and various locations across the Golden State. While he was growing up, he shuttled me back and forth between Compton and Oakland, California, and Dayton, Ohio. In Dayton, Ohio, he attended Meadowdale High School for one year (the ninth grade). When he was cut from the freshman basketball team, he decided to drop out of school. For this reason, he skipped the first two and a half years of high school and then enrolled at Belmont High School, where he played varsity basketball for a single year. After that, the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) informed him that he could no longer play high school basketball under the Clair Muscaro OHSAA’s jurisdiction. So he moved away from Ohio to go to Redemption Christian Academy, a prep school in Troy, New York. His teammate Lamar Odom went on to win an NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers and play for several more teams. He had to return to Ohio when his time at Redemption Christian Academy ended owing to commitments with his family there. Later, he completed his education at Belmont High School in Dayton, Ohio. He enrolled at Central State University and spent a year there after finishing high school. When he was done with his studies at Central State University, he transferred to Clark State Community College to play basketball and earn his Associate of Arts degree in Elementary Education. He then attended Upper Iowa University, where he played college basketball and received a bachelor’s degree in business marketing. After finishing college, he stayed at Wells Fargo Financial through 2008. He left following the 2008 market and housing collapse. He then embarked on a journey of discovery, moving from place to place in search of work and a new identity. Later, he decided to start Bottom2thatop Entertainment which is a multi-entity company. He was the CEO and co-founder of Global Music Distribution, Music Royalty Financing, IAM Feeling Good CBD and Hemp Company, Hoops and Vacation, Authentic Digital Marketing, Jetsetters Booking Agency, Linked Management, Solar Energy ASAP, Bottom2thatop Records, Authentic Creative Marketing. Jetsetters Marketing & Management Group Worldwide TM, and a few more companies are all under his leadership and direction. Furthermore, he and his son Michael Anderson have published more than fifty children’s books and have plans to publish an autobiography in addition to a number of works of fiction, novels, and nonfiction. This man splits his time between the cities of Miami, California, and Las Vegas. Since he was 7 years old till he was 23 years old, he played basketball, and it is his favorite sport. He was a player at every level from the Amateur Athletic Union through High School to Prep School to College. It’s been a long time since he last picked up a basketball, and that was in college. His original goal in life was to become a professional basketball player for the NBA, but since that didn’t work out, he’s moved on to pursue other passions in the arts, including business, entertainment, and music. Over the course of his career, he has collaborated with numerous companies, including Jordan Tower Films, Worldstarhiphop, Universal Music Group, Livenation, ICM, Willaim Morris, CAA, Def Jam Records, MMP, New Money Twinz, Artest Media Group, and more. He has faith in Allah, and he loves his mom, his kids, his family, his friends, his team, and his coworkers. His message is, “Never give up and always put Allah first.” What doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger, he adds. With Allah’s help and your own determination, you may accomplish anything. Keep your mind on the task at hand, and learn to appreciate yourself, your fellow man, and your existence. Stick to the established norms. Knowledge and love, in the name of Allah, are potent weapons.

I’m Tiffany Veney born and raised in the inner city of East Baltimore. My background is typical of any inner-city child in the 80s. My mother was addicted to drugs, my father was in prison, and I was raised by my grandmother. Since I was the oldest of 7 kids, I was tasked with taking care of my siblings. I hated it lol. I grew up with the two oldest. Two of them were adopted, one was raised by an extended family member and the baby was raised primarily by his dad. Although my grandmother raised me, I was still in foster care. Despite the struggle, I wouldn’t change anything. I wouldn’t be as resilient today without going through all the challenges I’ve endured. The only thing I feel sets me apart is that I always believed there was bigger out there for me. I’m blessed to still have been shown a different way out. Whether it was going to the house of the people I worked for (at 12 yes before a work permit), who lived in Essex off the water or being in the Living Classroom Program. I’ve always been determined to not let my situation define me. As a child, I was always intrigued by home renovations. In fact, I really wanted to be a construction worker. I quickly erased that from my mind because I told myself that it was a manly job. I later begged to go to Baltimore Polytechnic Institute because I felt like engineering was the next best thing. In college, I studied architecture then quickly switched my major to Finance. I convinced myself, mainly due to the lack of woman presence in the industry, that I needed to go with a safer field. At 25, I bought my first house. I felt so accomplished and ahead of the game. I made some bad financial decisions and lost it a few years later. I still think Wells Fargo owes me for that due to their unsavory loan modification processes back then, but I digress. I still learned a lot from that situation and one of the most important lessons was the importance of home ownership. Home ownership is a great accomplishment, it can create generational wealth, it becomes an asset you can later leverage and it also gives a great sense of pride in your neighborhood. I now look at Real Estate as a tool to financial freedom. Whether it’s the property you occupy or one you rent out, there’s several opportunities to make money from real estate. The caveat is also that there’s tons of ways to lose in real estate as well. Before making a purchase, you should look at the current value of homes, their current condition, the cost to bring the home up to date if needed, and if the asking price falls within or under the market price. I decided to get my real estate license when I was 25 but unfortunately that was right when the housing market crashed so I stayed in finance Years later. I tried property management and that was more hands on but not in the right direction. After working for someone else managing their rehab projects for a few years, I decided to start my own business and take on my own projects. I’m still amazed by the transformations that can take place. Whether it’s residential or commercial, I view it as a blank canvas with endless opportunities. I love to be innovative, creative, functional and modern.
