The field is open for true hoping of the masses
What’s real is the notion of success through a passion
A unity of you and me, a view of trees, and a sunset
Memories of slavery but we’re not done yet
We stood in wait for dawn to break and the sun to rise
Because the son don’t rise if the sun don’t rise..
As the song titel “N.Y.C.”says we each sang about our feelings that we had until we started our lives in NY and the things we have realized after we got here.
The music video was filmed in NYC.
We have been doing music separately in Japan but we really became like a family after meeting here.
We hope you all will listen to our song

Timid & Dr. Larry Chiagouris speak with hostess Gwen Edwards on Our Lives regarding their project collaboration of Chiagouris‘ book The Secret To Getting A Job After College and Timid’s “I Want The Secret” song and music video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RI1hg9VZjSI).
The collaboration has gained national media coverage from USAToday in a recent article at http://www.usatoday.com/money/jobcenter/workplace/bruzzese/story/2011-11-30/learn-to-market-yourself-to-get-job/51482754/1

Timid partnered with Pace University professor and author Dr. Larry Chiagouris to utilize Hip Hop as a vehicle to help college graduates and job seekers. Timid wrote and produced the song “I Want The Secret” describing the current situation students face and, taking cues from Chiagouris’ book, providing tips to those looking for employment.
From the USAToday article “Market yourself like a product to get employers’ attention“:
“For the past decade, Larry Chiagouris has watched college seniors troop into his office every spring at Pace University in New York, seeking his advice on how to get a job.
Because he was beginning to feel like a broken record repeating the same advice, Chiagouris says he decided to write a book called The Secret to Getting a Job After College (Brand New World Publishing, $14.99).
Still, he says he knew from his years of teaching that he needed something else to hammer the message home.
“Timid” is the rap name of Jaylon Carter. His video Inferno attracted Chiagouris’ attention, because he thought Carter was delivering a message that spoke to the fire-in-the-belly attitude students need to develop if they want to find a job.”
