2012 New Year Resolutions: Artists

In late December, we sought out artists from all corners of our scene to share their goals and resolutions for 2012. Here is what we came up with.

Share your goals and resolutions in the comments.

DJ Aslan
I want to get to a better level of production in music.

DJ Sean P
To follow God’s call. Simple, but mind boggling.

Grow in Christ
Finish new musical projects
Develop more fruits of the spirit
Grow as a songwriter and musician

Releasing my first album on Illect Recordings and hopefully more music there
Stay in good healthy condition
Do a good job at school where I teach kids
Make good beats and work with artists i dig (see 1.)

To earn black belts in Karate and Ninjutsu.
To take at least 3 college courses.
To exercise more regularly.

My goal for next year is to be less attached to the “success” of my music… I’ve become so invested in ensuring it gets heard that it negatively affects other, more-important priorities. I feel like, when that happens, I’m interfering with any positive impact God may intend for it.

Peace 586
Ok seriously this time… I am going to be debt free in 2012!! I can see the light and if I stay focused and strong, my goal shall be met! Other things include being more health conscious and spending more time with my mom and dad! Especially since my dad has Alzheimer’s and it’s getting worse. That’s about it for me… Hope you guys meet your goals for 2012 also!!

In 2012 I’d like to talk to an angel or a donkey that tells me I’m doing the Lord’s will and that everything is right on schedule.

My new years resolution is to be a better student of both the Bible and music

To officially learn PROPER spanish, rather than slang spanglish… more actively pursuing discipleship… being discipled and doing discipling.

Rob Hodge

Sean Little
Release new solo album in the Spring! & tour to promote/perform it
Complete the Teacher Education program that I’m currently enrolled in.
Contribute to Sphere boards weekly.
Blog weekly.
Launch new website.

Sintax the Terrific
In 2012, my goal is to look more handsome and read good. It is also my goal is to be very agreeable with my wife; more tolerant of my children’s exuberant activity; and consistently productive at work. But, before that, I would like to lift many pounds swiftly and do hundreds of hard calisthenics. I hope to complete four albums and produce 90 news raps. Finally, I would like to be smart at the mathematics and hard to tackle.

To release the best material I’ve ever released for the sole honor of The King.

I’m not into resolutions but my goals and prayers for 2012 are continued growth in the areas of prayer, patience, love, faith, obedience, selflessness, health, of being a better husband, a better father, a better steward over my home and finances, a better leader, a better student of Christ, to grow as an artist and for Gods hand to be upon the Supreme album.
