Artist4Hyer and the blog team took a brief hiatus, just to make sure things will stay relevant. Currently I'm in the middle of finding recording equipment to make this blogging/thing a little more interesting. I do apologize to each and everyone who has been grinding and working tirelessly and need an outlet to put their music out. I have all the submissions and will post them as soon as possible. For all those who are fans and still check on the blog religiously, I do apologize to you as well, we will be back soon!
