1L Music, a Bronx-based indie-rock band with inspirations from Coldplay to Hozier, debuts their first single, “Nobody Knows,” this Friday, February 19, 2021, at midnight across all streaming platforms. The song “Nobody Knows” painstakingly depicts the euphoric feeling of being with your one true soulmate. The listener is propelled into the “emotions of joy, uncertainty, and comfort, brought on by the rollercoaster ride of what is love,” gleams bandmate Nick.
Nick and Josh Anthony, founders of 1L Music and lifelong friends, faced two unique musical journeys that brought them together. Fear and depression struck Nick in his younger years, with the tribulations of how to fulfill the daunting task known as the “American Dream.” Whereas Nick saw music as a distraction, Josh joined his church singing group and realized that music was an equalizer: regardless of his social class, he could be a part of something larger than himself. Making music was the first time neither Nick nor Josh felt alone. After performing for weddings and throughout NYC in 2019, the crowds’ electric energy motivated them to turn their passion into careers. Though distance throughout life threatened to tear them apart, they continually supported…

He calls himself TBE – The Best Ever – and many boxing fans agree Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is one of the finest athletes ever to grace the noble art, but the American’s wait to be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame rumbles on.

A powerful memoir by two sisters about transitioning, family, and the path to self-realization.
When Orange Is the New Black and Diary of a Future President star Selenis Leyva was young, her hardworking parents brought a new foster child into their warm, loving family in the Bronx. Selenis was immediately smitten; she doted on the baby, who in turn looked up to Selenis and followed her everywhere. The little boy became part of the family. But later, the siblings realized that the child was struggling with their identity. As Marizol transitioned and fought to define herself, Selenis and the family wanted to help, but didn’t always have the language to describe what Marizol was going through or the knowledge to help her thrive.
In My Sister, Selenis and Marizol narrate, in alternating chapters, their shared journey, challenges, and triumphs. They write honestly about the issues of violence, abuse, and discrimination that transgender people and women of color–and especially trans women of color–experience daily. And they are open about the messiness and confusion of fully realizing oneself and being properly affirmed by others, even those who love you.
Profoundly moving and instructive, My Sister offers insight into the lives of two siblings learning to be their authentic selves. Ultimately, theirs is a story of hope, one that will resonate…
