NEW MUSIC FROM AE X ME COUNCIL MEMBER TIM JOHNSON JR.

“Soul is everything to me,” actor and musician Tim Johnson Jr. told us when he joined the AExME Council last year. And with the release of his new EP, Soul Conscience, that soul is on full display. Written and produced by Tim and his father, the album is now available wherever you listen to music, including Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and YouTube.

Read on for a behind-the-scenes look at how Soul Conscience came together!

Q: What was the inspiration for Soul Conscience?

It’s funny, when I was in the writing and recording process with these songs, at first I didn’t know it would be for an EP, because this year I’d already come out with an album called Summer Sessions. But my dad (who is also my producer) was like, “These songs – this can be an EP.”  These were songs that came out of conversations and thoughts about the importance of being aware of yourself and the world around you. Understanding we are all souls searching for our purpose in life.

 

Q: What’s your favorite song on the EP?

My favorite song on the project is “No More Loneliness.” It’s my favorite because it’s a song of empowerment and faith, understanding that you don’t have to walk alone. My whole family is singing on the song with me, so that makes it even more special.

Q: How did you get started in music?

I started singing when I was very young. There was just something so freeing about it. I remember always hearing music, from being in church to listening to our Motown CDs in the car. My dad was in a gospel group and had a recording studio in our basement. My parents heard me sing in the car one day, and asked me what song I was singing and I told them that I made up the song. From then on, I’ve been recording in the studio.

 

Q: What are you listening to these days?

My favorite song right now is “Lights Up” by Harry Styles. Since the day it came out, I’ve had it on repeat.

 

 

3 Ways to Style Mom Jeans

Take inspo from your mom’s tried-and-true, old-school denim look with your own pair of Mom jeans. With a comfy high rise and a relaxed fit that hits right above the ankle, they’re not like regular jeans. They’re cool jeans.

Go for the OG Mom jean with the classic fit you already know, or try the Curvy Mom jean for more room through the hips and thighs. The Relaxed Mom jean offers a more laid-back fit that’s slightly looser than the original, and the highest waist Mom jean takes your jeans to new heights with our highest rise.

With tons of stretch and rigid options to choose from, Mom jeans are all about elevating your throwback look with some key elements. ‘Cause sometimes mom does know best. Read on for tips on how to style your Mom jeans this winter!

Add Some Edge

What’s really in this season? Jeans with big holes, mega destruction, and frayed details. Ripped jeans add some edge to your ’90s-inspired vibes, and are a good way to try something new. Wear them with a basic tank and cropped corduroy shirt for a look that’s just right for your next concert or chill sesh with friends.

Keep It Simple

Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. Keep your look casual and comfy with a henley sweater and Mom jeans with subtle destruction. To show off your wild side, tuck in your shirt and wear an animal-print belt.

How To Make 2020 Your Year

AE New Year

As another holiday season comes to a close, it’s time to start thinking ahead. What does the new year have in store for you, and more importantly, what do you have planned for it?

Forget resolutions that make you feel bad about yourself. This year is all about living your best life! What are the goals you can set that will really inspire and empower you in 2020?

Here are a few helpful steps you can take to help find your way there.

There’s something about putting your dreams down on paper that makes them real. Make time for yourself to list, sketch, and brainstorm what you really want from the year ahead. Give yourself a place to be bold and free, even if it’s just in a notebook for now.

Check in with yourself to figure out what you really need. It could be a heavy dose of chill, some serious focus, a little energy boost, or even just a good night’s sleep. Whatever it is, set yourself up for success by adding the right MOOD CBD-infused wellness into your daily routine. A little lip balm or hand cream can go a long way in helping you feel less stressed.

If there’s one thing universally proven to make you feel good, it’s getting active. That doesn’t have to mean signing up for spin class or hitting the gym – it could just mean being comfy enough to have an impromptu dance party with your bestie, or taking a 10-minute walk at lunch. Whatever “active” means for you, the “right” gear means that if you want to break a sweat, you can do it without sweating your look… or a change of clothes.
