The Magic of Mavenn - Samuel Roberts Reporting

         There’s something in a person’s voice that catches you, there are people that can sing sure but every now and then you hear a voice that almost physically grabs your attention. For me it was Mavenns voice when I was lucky enough to catch a 4am show at Cafe Musique. She has a haunting rasp and yet a gentleness to the way her tone rings out across the airwaves, and I know we are all dancing at these shows we go to but Mavenns voice has me dancing in my chair not just in avatar form. There’s a magic to the notes she hits.

         I think sometimes in second life we forget how blessed we are to have such amazing talent on our grids, I for one have taken it for granted, surrounded by amazing, gifted people, one of which was this amazing woman who sang like a Goddess and it turns out this isn’t an opinion held by me alone because the crowds gathered for this event were a testament to her reach and impact which was not surprising. I caught up with Mavenn after the show to ask her a bit about her journey, check it out.


      Samuel: Hi Maven, quick question to begin with, how long have you been doing this in SL, this music thing.


Mavenn: 11 years tbh, it's been a bit of journey but I wouldn’t change it for a thing, it's been amazing and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon lol


      Samuel: Wow, that’s commitment, what keeps you going, what motivates you I guess to not just stop sometimes or move on?


Mavenn: Oh I love this, everything about it, every aspect. I Mean it’s not something you can explain, you have to be in the culture to understand what I mean.


      Samuel: So, this is kind of not a job you do, its more of a life you live?


Mavenn: Absolutely. Music has always filled my soul with magic. I have come to realize that I have the ability to experience that with others too. That's real connection.


      Samuel: One more question for you Mavenn before we go, who are your top 3 collab pics of all time.


Mavenn: Eric Gales, Joe Bonamasa, Christone Ingram


      Samuel: Wonderful speaking with you, see you up there Mavenn.


         In short, Mavenn is a goddess, her music, vibe, and overall presentation is legit and I’m ALL IN, joined the group, subscribe to the scribo, and WILL be back.

Spotlight on Loopman Blep A New Vocalist Guitarist Keyboardist Mix and Master in Second Life!- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

LoopMan Blep is from São Paulo, Brazil, and studied at Conservatório Municipal de Guarulhos in Guarulhos. He has been involved in music in real life for more than a decade and performed in many places in Brazil with bands, duo projects, and also solo. He collaborates with several artists from his city recording guitars, and keyboards, mixing, mastering, and even producing songs. Loopman brings his talent into Second Life with the music he sings, such as  Brazilian and International pop, rock, reggae, and popular music, and covers international songs from famous musicians like Seal, Foofigthers, Linkin Park, Kansas, LimpBizkit, Lil Nas X, and many more. Each song is sung from the heart and he delivers at every show. He captivates his newfound fanbase and encourages them to make requests.  SLE met up with him after winning a feature after his participation in Open Auditions at The SL Enquirer Media Center on November 4th.

Interview with Loopman Bleb

SLE: Everyone’s journey to the virtual world is different.  Where are you from and how did you discover Second Life?

 Loop: I am from Brazil, born in 1990 in the city of Guarulhos São Paulo Brazil, I have lived here for exactly 32 years. I just discovered Second life through John Rocky a singer who has been in Secondlife for a little over 5 years. Thanks to John I discovered the platform of things that are in here.

SLE: What a great opportunity to work with someone seasoned in the SL Music scene. We are glad you are here. You have an interesting avatar name, what inspired it?

Loop: I love my name, Loop has a lot to do with the things in life that everything starts and ends and closes a cycle, and moreover it is related to the music of course, in this case, looping pedals which is one of the accessories I use with my guitar in my shows in real life and virtual life, it allows me to record an arrangement and then play something else on top of this layer. My last name in fact is something funny that somehow is connected to music, which is Blep a kind of sound that we hear in the mailbox or when we receive a message.

SLE: That’s a very creative name for sure. You studied at Conservatório Municipal de Guarulhos in Guarulhos. Can you tell us about your educational background and how it helps you today?

Loop: My study, I confess that at the beginning of the classes was very boring, at this time I was around 13 years old and any child would love to be playing several instruments instead of reading and studying the theoretical part. But I realized how important it was when I learned to respect the time of each musical note or person, I realized that over time I learned to listen to each detail and each note, and I also realized how sensitive my hearing is. It also brings along good movement coordination, balance, and discipline and without a doubt, I think it contributes a lot to each person's professional growth and concentration. And last but not least it is the musical evolution.

SLE: That is great that you learned at an early age to have patience and self-discipline when it comes to your schooling. Thinking back to when you were a kid. Who most inspired your love of music? How has it affected the music you perform and write?

Loop:  I remember that when I was a child my father and mother had a disagreement and separated for a while, so I went to live with my mother in my grandparent's house. A few days passed at their house and I began to notice that every Sunday at 4 pm a neighbor would sit on their patio and play his guitar, I became interested in music, so every Sunday I was there waiting for him to play his guitar. One fine day my mother gave me a toy guitar, and I tried to reproduce what I heard the neighbor playing, the Brasileirinho song. A few weeks went by and I managed to play the same song on my toy instrument, then my parents saw me doing it and decided to give me a real guitar, time went by and I dedicated myself to learning, I bought some magazines with chords at newsstands and tried to play everything I heard on radios, CDs and records. Nowadays my compositions are made with so much affection, and lyrics of good things, I love to use references from the first music that I learned in life, I like to write songs with good energy, positive and constructive.  Today the songs that I play and sing and musical creations have small rhythmic and melodic influences of the first music that I learned in life when I was a child and listened to my neighbor play my compositions are with positivity, joy, and things that add to the life of each person.

SLE: I do love hearing that you get the joy from music that many other performers we have interviewed do. Having a closeness to the music as you do truly shows in your performances. You have been involved with music for over 15 years in real life. Can you tell us about your experiences?

Loopman: I started working with music when I was 18 years old in events at social events and in needy communities in the region where I lived, as the years went by I joined my first reggae band as a keyboardist, we played in some places and bars, that was essential for my learning and evolution, as the years passed I followed new musical experiences with different bands playing in private and public cultural venues. In this story many things happened, there were good moments, bad moments, good moments, and others that didn't pay, but in fact, the best moment was when I participated in a band of visually impaired people, the band Tribo de Jah, I spent a little more time together with this band, it was very pleasant to share the stage with these guys, each one of them had an incredible talent, their senses were very sharp and they had a tremendous skill with their instruments, I can say that this experience contributed at least 50% of my musical evolution and as a person. Now a disaster tour was when I accepted to do some shows along the Brazilian coast with a band called Levi Ras, it's funny how many things went wrong hahaha, he hired me to play keyboards, said we would have good fees and at least 2 shows a day because none of that happened, we had to sleep with 6 people inside a small car, he had not closed shows, so where we stopped the car he would get out of the car and go to bars to try to get a show, the worst thing was going 3 days without taking a shower, but it's not over yet, on 1 of the days we had to play in exchange for hamburgers hahaha, but that's okay like everything in life there are good times and bad times.

SLE: You have come a long way from singing for hamburgers. Thank you for sharing your hardships and gains. It is tough to work hard and fail and get back up and keep on moving forward with your passion. In the end, it is all worth it if it makes you happy. Do you write your own music? If so, How would you describe your music style?

Loopman: Talking about composition I can say that this is something new for me, I've been an instrumentalist for a long time so it never crossed my mind to compose music, but when the pandemic arrived in brazil in 2020 and we had lockdown spending days and hours at home I started to write some things, then I was creating and recording some arrangements, and little by little it took shape until my first track came out. Titled Intolerant Dub which was produced and mixed by me. I can say that my musical influence has a very strong root in Jamaican reggae, Brazilian popular music, reggae, rock, pop and etc. But I really like to play different genres and I could say that I'm eclectic.

SLE: Amazing that you were able to use the negativity of the pandemic to make it a positive to further your musical career. What types of instruments do you play?

Loopman: The instrument that I have the most affinity and contact with is acoustic guitar and electric guitar, but I have already ventured into other instruments, I was the bassist in a reggae band called Sons de Bob and I was also a drummer in a rock band called União do Gueto and lastly I was the keyboardist of the band Bamboo_br for 10 years. Currently, I play electric guitar, melodica, harp, and keyboard but the main thing is the guitar.

SLE: You are a well-rounded performer.  As a new musician in Second Life, what do you think about performing virtually compared to real life?

Loopman: Really doing shows in a virtual way has been wonderful, there are so many places and so many people, not to mention the diversity of singers and talents spread across this universe, I never thought I could be inside my house making live music for people all over the world. I see people supporting the singers appreciating, vibrating going to the shows, and making music within second life brought me a lot of learning and many friends too that I will take for life in memory. I have dedicated myself and tried hard to deliver the best for these people and I have seen that people have liked it. With regard to real life, it is really different, besides the Brazilian music market is saturated, our art is not so valued, and it is very difficult to be accepted by people who dedicate themselves and deliver a great job, the fees most of the time we just manage to pay our accounts. But the good thing is that there is an incredible opportunity in the metaverse and I'm willing to do my best and conquer my space along with great singers who are already successful on the platform.

SLE: The Metaverse is an incredible place for all kinds of talent and skills. You are part owner of AudioHouse in Second Life, can you tell our readers a little bit more about that venue and your goals for those that perform there?

Loopman:  AudioHouse is a place that will be open 24 hours for the common users, we will have open chat except during the shows, we have an environment with games and we will have live shows with the team members. AudioHouse was founded in partnership with ArishaFlame and aims to self-promote new musicians giving space and voice during their shows, our idea is to direct everyone who attends our space to live performances and attract owners from other places to give opportunities for new arrivals. We have a team of students that we help until they become a little more independent and are able to move forward with their careers, and when everyone is ready, we can make our team bigger. We are open to partnerships, you can become one of us and help the younger ones, contact us.

SLE: I like the concept of your venue. There needs to be a place where new performers can go and get the help they need to succeed with their peers. How often do you perform in Second Life, do you have a calendar and group that fans can follow? 

Loopman: In Second Life my availability is from 7 am to 7 pm, I have a few shows during the week, and I keep working to get more opportunities. I have a google calendar and a group called "LoopMan Live Sessions" where people can join to receive concert notices.

SLE: Music is a universal language and is an important part of every culture. Thank you for sharing your story with us. Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Loopman:  I would like to thank you, who got me here, the " SL Enquirer " for this incredible opportunity to tell a little of my story, I would like to thank John Rocky who showed me this universe of SL, and mainly thank all the people who support me and who attend my shows and was always by my side. And if you like LoopMan Blep to do his shows, he's eager to meet you. Also to the places that want to give an opportunity to LoopMan, he is available ☺♥

Spotlight on Μαє ℜ'Łуєђ Aηatίηє (averymae.amore) Live Singer and Flutist- SLE Reporting…


Always Unique, Totally Intelligent, and Sometimes Mysterious Mae is an autistic live performer with a passion for playing her flute. She has been performing as a flutist for over 20 years along with 8 years of experience in a marching band and two years of private lessons. Mae started with music when she was very young with her first instrument being her voice at around 18 months but an official instrument around the age of 3. Mae lost many people in her life and went into a severe depression.  music was her family's last resort in helping her through those hard times. At age 11, Mae was enrolled in a band and her talent took off like lightning she ended up being the first person to have two stars for flute tryouts, the first person to put her flute together, and the first person to learn all 12 scales and the minor scales. To this day, Mae has learned over 13 instruments and absolutely loves them all. In Second Life, not only does she perform but she is also involved in many charities. The SL Enquirer met up with Mae to learn more about her and what she does.

Interview with  Μαє ℜ'Łуєђ Aηatίηє (averymae.amore)

SLE: Hi Mae, it is a pleasure to meet you. Congratulations on winning the raffle at Freedom Rock’s Wild Wild West Event! Where are you from and how did you discover Second Life?

Mae: Hi Lanai, it's a pleasure to meet you as well. I am from South Georgia in the United States. I was actually in college when I found Second Life back in 2009 originally. I was honestly surfing the internet looking for something to do with my free time and found Second Life. I immediately fell in love and I have logged in every day since 2009.

SLE: A lot of people found Second life, like that, we are sure glad you did. So tell us it is rare to meet a flutist these days. Can you give our readers a little background about you, your music background, and your experience? 

Mae: I suppose it is a rare thing here in Second Life, far as I know I am probably the only one in Second Life who does live flute music. I have been playing flute for now twenty years and it honestly was a good thing that my parents put me in the band to learn to play because I had a very rough childhood, so music was something that saved me from self-destruction. However, I have been singing since I was a baby around eighteen months to my lullaby, if I wasn't asleep I would start humming it, so they knew music would play a big role in my life and they didn't realize how much it would until later. With flute, we had to try out at school and no stars meant a different instrument, one star meant you were okay but possibly another instrument would be better, and two stars meant you were perfect for the instrument and my tryout was two stars, so I was told to buy a flute. I was the first person to put my flute together, take my plugs out, and learn all twelve scales and all minor scales. I was labeled as a prodigy essentially. My first flute was a student flute which I played through high school, my current flute is a professional-level jazz flute that I got in college and played through college which is also the flute I play here in Second Life.

SLE: Glad that playing music was helpful to you as a child and further helped you develop into the talented person you are. Also, didn’t know there were different kinds of flutes, but I guess it makes sense now. How would you describe your range and style of music?

Mae: I honestly don't know. I would probably have to say eclectic. I love to play with things that speak to me. My song list ranges from classical to jazz to oldies, to today's hits. So, honestly, I'm very versatile with my music.

SLE: Well your love for music is all over the place. That is great showing love for many different genres, it gives you the openness to play many different songs. For many people, music is more than entertainment. It speaks to our souls differently. It is not only something to do for fun but it is also a therapy. It can trigger memories, evoke emotions and help us through difficult times in our lives. How has music impacted your life?

Mae: When I was first growing up, I had many life events happen. There were a few big ones that had sent me into a spiral. One of them was my grandpa dying in front of my eyes because of a massive heart attack at the tender age of six. He was not the only death we had that year. We had five others which were all two weeks apart. I went into a severe depression, I was voided from life. I didn't respond to people around me, I wouldn't talk to anyone except my teacher in school, my mom, and my speech therapist. As time progressed, I still stayed quiet and more things happened to me. I was being bullied in school because I was "different", we hadn't known of my autism at this time. I was out of control by the time I got introduced to the band in sixth grade which did a three-sixty on my life.

SLE: So sorry for your loss especially multiple ones like that. But it is always nice to see a silver lining from a tragedy like that, you found your place in the music life that you were meant to be in. So tell our readers, we found out that you are not only are you an SL performer but you are very involved in charities, can share your accolades with our readers about some of the charities you are involved in?

Mae: My biggest charity that I have been involved in is Relay for Life, which I have been with them since 2009. I have been on tech support, castle builder, top DJ competition, and captain of my own team. Currently, I still serve as the Survivor and Caregiver Honor Lap Coordinator since 2019, working with Camping for a Cure, for now, two years, I am their Host Manager, Cooking for a Cure featuring DFS, and a blogger for them. I am also the blogger manager for Out Shop Cancer which falls in October. I've also done Christmas Expo as a designer. Besides Relay, I have done Pride Festival as a blogger, One Billion Rising as a shirt creator for this past year, Toys for Tots as a creator, Rare Disease Day as a supporter, Homes for Our Troops as a supporter, and recently, Feed a Smile where I raised 40 meals while playing my flute.

SLE: Well you do have a few hidden talents, from music, to building, to designing. That is great to know that you are able to help in so many ways. Being a flutist do you find that you have a certain kind of fan base or do you find that by introducing yourself to the SL residents you are gaining more because your instrument is not the “norm” played in SL?

Mae: Honestly, I've just started recently sharing my talent the past month with Second Life. I honestly have found that there are many people who are interested because my instrument is not normal but also it does appeal to certain fan bases as well.

SLE: Well I am glad we met so early in your career here in Second Life, hopefully, this interview will bring more eyes and ears to your talents. Aside from the flute what other instruments do you like to use while performing in Second Life?

Mae: Currently, I only perform with the flute but I also have my glass flute, Chinese flute, pan flute, and recorder that I can use but I haven't introduced those quite yet. However, I am trying to build up enough courage to sing.

SLE:  You mentioned you have autism, often time it can be hard to make connections with others due to difficulties in communication, How has performing in Second Life helped you? Explaining Autism from your perspective will be very insightful for our readers and allow them to see this disorder through your eyes.

Mae: Explaining this to someone who doesn't understand Autism is quite challenging because if you meet one person with Autism, you've only met one person because the spectrum is so wide-ranged. A good way to explain this is a friend with positive and negative benefits. The negative is having anxiety about approaching a venue owner to play at their venue or just talking to someone about managing me because of my lack of understanding of the fact I take so long to process things or I don't correct someone just because they said something to me that was wrong because I fear of the lash back or being anxious about being accepted. The positive is I get to do what I enjoy, I get to meet new people which I yearn to do even as an Autistic person, and I get to share with others that Autism doesn't limit people on what they can and can't do.

SLE: Thank you for helping me and many others to understand just a little bit about how Autism affects you and others. Second Life does a lot of charities for many different reasons. Autism for one, have you included yourself in any of the charity events, or is that something you keep personal?

Mae: Far as an Autism charity, I have not found one that I would like to participate, in yet. I don't quite know which ones are still on the grid for them but far as Relay, I'm heavily involved in them. Also, Feed a Smile, One Billion Rise, Out Shop Cancer, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (Strides), the Christmas Expo, and Toys for Tots.

SLE: So nice to hear your involvement in charities, it does say a lot for you as a person. Do you have a calendar listing your performances? If so, what is the link?

Mae: Yes! This is the link: Live Performances (

SLE: How can venues book you?

Mae: I'm currently looking for a management, however, that is a very slow process for me. So, currently, they can contact me directly, AveryMae Amore, OR my sister, Yvanna Schuster.

SLE: Thank you for sharing your story, and talent with us as well as your charitable service in the Second Life community.  Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Mae: Thank you so much for this opportunity. I am excited to hear people's feedback on my story and what I have done here in Second Life.
