Ahmaud Arbery Suspect Wants Bond, Names Breonna Taylor & George Floyd In Docs

One of the men involved in the Ahmaud Arbery case wants to be granted bond. It was in late February when Ahmaud Arbery was jogging in his Georgia neighborhood before he was reportedly chased down by father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael. Ahmaud was shot and killed in the street and after a video surfaced of the incident, the public was outraged. The person responsible for the recording, William “Roddie” Bryan, was arrested along with the McMichaels, but Bryan wants out of jail and cites other controversial cases in his petition to the court.

According to TMZ, Bryan wants to be granted bond and believes that it isn’t fair that he’s remained incarcerated since May. In court documents, his attorneys reportedly write that it is “manifestly unjust that the alleged killers of George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks and Breonna Taylor have all been granted bond while Roddie Bryan, armed only with a cell phone and located more than 50 feet away from Mr. Arbery at the time of the shooting, languishes in the Glynn County Detention Center.”

Bryan has been charged with murder in connection to Ahmaud Arbery’s death and has pleaded not guilty. He reportedly asked for bond back in July and was denied. His legal team has stated that Bryan is not a flight risk and doesn’t pose a threat to his community.

Promising New Artist Taydem Shoesmith To Release Debut Single On New Year’s Eve

The singer-songwriter, actress and performer will release the electro-pop single “Are You Clapping?” just in time for New Year’s playlists.

With an affinity for music from a very young age, Taydem Shoesmith has been exploring songwriting for quite some time. Having multiple IMDB acting and composing credits to her name, Taydem is now diving into the pop music market with her debut single, “Are You Clapping?” The electro-pop/dance anthem, written by Shoesmith, comes from a very personal place; one she hopes will connect with listeners:

‘I think this is my first song that was written out of anger,” Taydem recalls. “I remember writing in my lyric book about how frustrated I was with the people around me and society in general. We think we have to act like the perfect person when we talk to people or go on dates. We’re kind of setting ourselves up for failure because we’re acting like someone we think they want to be with. I mean, it makes sense because in the past, relationships weren’t about love or connections. They were basically just business deals. I guess I just got to the point of wondering why I was doing this. Why were people telling me to talk more, smile more, flirt better, don’t be boring, etc, so often, when it came to relationships. Because not only was it exhausting to keep that facade up, I was also disappointed in myself for basically faking who I was, just to catch some guy’s attention. So through this song, I’m saying that I’m done putting up a show.   Having confidence in the choices we make is very important, no matter if it’s in relationships, jobs, or life in general. And that is the message I hope people will take away from this song.”

From singer-songwriter to pop and alternative, Taydem’s music is a unique amalgamation of different genres and influences. Her musical inspirations include Michael Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Billie Holiday, Sabrina Carpenter, Camila Cabello and more. Her acting debut was in 2020, when she was cast for a role in the short film “In the Dark.” She has been cast as the lead in multiple films, and has created music for films as well; one of those being a theme song for a short series, “Blood Sisters.”

“I’ve experienced a very toxic relationship, and I did not realize it,” she said. The wake-up call was when he did not show up at my first show, nor was he supportive of my art, being jealous of my creativity and not being enthusiastic about my success. He was trying to discourage me every step of the way. I let him go and honestly… I felt miserable. I really thought I couldn’t live without him, but I discovered that it was actually quite the opposite. The doors started to open for me as soon as he was gone. Relationships are sometimes distractions, and they take us on a path that is not ours to take, and we lose focus of what our true desires are.”
