“The most magical moment is when you pray. Because praying is to make a reflection, not of what you want, but of what you have. To be grateful that I’m okay, that I am healthy. Because we are very lucky.”

“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!
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.
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.
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.
My favorite song right now is “Lights Up” by Harry Styles. Since the day it came out, I’ve had it on repeat.
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!
Build your outfit around a couple simple pieces to keep your look uncluttered and true to you. Pair a cropped fleece sweatshirt with Mom jeans and sneakers for an easy vibe. Plus, Mom jeans are made with a comfy high-waisted fit, so they work great with your fave crop tops.
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.
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.
