Mvkvdi and Brenda Carsey – Stand Up


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Raw, honest and truly uplifting!

Hi Brenda, welcome to VQS!
Tell us a little bit about you and your music.

Brenda Carsey is a Los Angeles-based vocalist,
songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. 

Carsey has been studying music and performing since the age of five. From choirs, orchestras, and marching bands to national anthem performances to soul, jazz, rock, pop, folk, hip hop, and electronic groups, stage shows, and solo projects, it seems Carsey has done it all. She plays both piano and guitar and performs both solo and with a full band.
Carsey also produces electronic music and has been featured as an instrumentalist and vocalist on many projects. Carsey’s voice is, in a word, uninhibited, mixing a syrupy sweet sound with a beautiful darkness and a vocal range with a potential of virtuosity. She will stop you in your tracks with poetic lyrics, fluid melodies, engaging chords progressions, funky rhythms, and a voice filled with passion and soul.
Mvkvdi is a Congo born producer and House, Hip Hop, and R&B beat maker. Growing from a life of adversity he found inspiration in the moon and the stars.

Congrats on the release!
What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?

Released on March 22, 2022. Brenda Carsey first wrote the poem” Stand Up” during the BLM protests and the ongoing threat to democracy in many parts of the world. As soon as she heard Mvkvdi’s beat she new it was a perfect fit.

What is your vision for this song?

With beats by Mvkvdi and lyrics and melody by Brenda Carsey, “Stand Up” is a mid-tempo R&B and Alternative Hip Hop song that calls for unity and understanding in this time of deception, division, violence, and alienation.

What is your favorite part of the song?

It’s a song that speaks strongly for itself through its lyrics.

Our unique choice to have a raw beat and raw vocals – there’s no reverb, no autotune, no massive drop.

Mvkvdi and Brenda Carsey will be teaming up for another single collaboration later this year.
