MeanAugustine Releases 2nd Single of the year ‘Blessings’



Versatile Ghanaian Musician, MeanAugustine is out with a glorious new song titled “Blessings” just a month after releasing “Elevate.” Listen Here

The beautifully-sung Afro-Pop record continues the artiste’s streak of flooding the Ghanaian music scene with superb tracks this year.

Unlike his last release, “Elevate” – which was more of an experimental record, “Blessings” is a pure laid-back Afro-Pop song with riveting lyrics. MeanAugustine in a relaxed tone, sings soulfully as if talking to a wayward kid to amend his or her ways. The delivery is simply top-notch.

On the MeanMix produced track, MeanAugustine reminisces about his own wayward ways, before assuring the mom of staying true to his grind and waiting for his “Blessings.”

With verses encased by a mellifluous sing-along chorus, the talented musician brings the song’s chief theme to life in two poignant verses.

In the opening verse, MeanAugustine tunefully raps about keeping a positive mind-set and outlook in life before intimately addressing poverty in the second verse.

MeanAugustine recently disclosed the inspiration behind the song to Amplify Ghana. He puts it this way: “My inspiration for writing the song was simply from all the numerous advice I have received over the years, so this is me assuring my people that no matter what, I will stay true to myself and wait on my blessings.”

“Blessings” by MeanAugustine is now available worldwide on all digital streaming platforms

Join the Daisy Jopling Band featuring local students for an adventure of history and music as they perform “The Northgate Story” July 12-14th, 2024. 

“The Northgate Story” is a musical celebration of history through music presented by Daisy Jopling and her Band. The concert will present the story of the historic Stern/Cornish estate, part of the Hudson Highlands State Park located in Cold Spring, NY.  With narration and performance, Daisy will tell us about the families who owned the site and how they shared their time and estate with youngsters. This event will support music education as local music students will perform as part of the event. 

Northgate the Stern/Cornish Estate:

Northgate, also known as “the old Cornish Estate” located in the Hudson Highlands State Park north of Cold Spring, NY is a popular hiking destination in the Hudson Valley. It was first put together by Sigmund and Dove Stern starting in the early 20th century by purchasing small farms near and around the Surprise Lake Camp. The Sterns were connected to the camp and Mr. Stern served on the board and donated land to them. After Dove’s passing in 1915 the site was leased then sold to Edward and Selina Cornish in 1917. The estate became a gentleman’s dairy farm under Mr. Cornish till shortly before his passing in 1938. The Cornish family did not use the site much after Edward Cornish’s death, and in 1958 a fire destroyed the residence. Central Hudson purchased the estate to build a power plant in 1963, but heard the public wishes that it not be built and it was sold and given to New York State parks to be part of the Hudson Highlands State Park in 1967.

Classical/rock violinist Daisy Jopling was born in London, and now lives in NY. She has toured to 54 countries around the world and recorded nine albums, two with BMG RCA Victor. Daisy was the first international violinist to perform a major concert at the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
