(31)

The beauty of Maiden Lane's mixed-use environment is that there are places to learn, grow and perform. Mocha Maiden and the Musica are the heart of Maiden Lane. The Musica is a 400+ music venue where the best and brightest come to perform and Mocha Maiden is an eclectic coffee house and bar. The good-natured atmosphere and the carefree give-and-take synergy at Mocha Maiden and Musica create an atmosphere where creative individuals can feel comfortable to exchange philosophies and ideas. The scene also caters to artists and fashionistas. Noto, Maiden Lane's fashion boutique, sells comfortable and chic attire and they throw a mean party. Noto sets up events for the art community such as Fashion Rocks Akron, a fashion festival thrown in April where all sorts of artists come together to enjoy art, music, good wine and new fashion trends.

The Angie Haze Project

The Angie Haze Project

Just wanted to share some amazing news!! You may or may not have heard about my documentary... but, we are pretty excited about how well its doing on the festival circuit!!

Documentary about Akron’s own Angie Haze is enjoying success in festivals around the World!

Akron, OH - Filmmaker todd v has spent the last 3 years working closely and documenting the life of Akron based singer-songwriter Angie Haze. Out of that process he has created a very special film that chronicles not only Angie’s creative process, but also the reasons behind her work. Angie Haze may not yet be a household name, but in her hometown, and in fact, regionally, she has made quite a name for herself in the music industry. As a multi award winning songwriter and stunning performer, she has become a perennial favorite of listeners of The Summit.

This documentary digs a bit deeper into her life and creative process. In this era of the #MeToo movement, we have seen how difficult yet important it is for people to speak out about their abuse, which in turn encourages other survivors to feel empowered to do the same. In this film, Angie shares her own story of abuse and how it shaped the artist that she is today. It is heart wrenching and yet inspiring to see Angie open up and confront her past, and create music to both aid in her healing and that of her fans.

The film has only been on the festival circuit for a short time but has already gotten these awards:

Winner - Film on Women - Cult Critic Movie Awards (India)
Finalist - Aprhodite Film Awards (NYC, USA)
Official Selection - Award in Inspirational Films - WRPN.TV Short, Tight and Loose Global Film Festival Competition (Delaware, USA)
Official Selection - Gar’s Garasjens Film Festival (Norway)
Official Selection - WRPN Women's International Film Festival (Delaware, USA)

"While these pieces have a clear sense of humor, that does not mean they should not be taken seriously. Rather, the ideas of time, impermanence and the playing with formal elements we have long come to accept is quite important. We live in an age full of “stuff,” and Bress’ work plays with how we interact with our world and highlights the impermanence of the objects we often value."—Anderson Turner, "‘Brian Bress’ blurs lines between art and video." Check out the entire review: Akron Beacon Journal
