Friday - 06 June 2014 ( @dontpanicldn) This is how I used to be known. Five years ago, the headline read, "Russell Simmons' Nephew Breaks Into The Music World". I'd just taken my own career and life into my own hands (creatively, and business-wise) and released a song I did with @blakeakanachung. @dontpanicldn was the first to run the article covering me and the song. It's funny how a headline can shape you and your actions. It was at this point I desperately searched for individuality and set out on my own. Five years and a few deal offers later, here I am. Controlling and releasing my own music at my own label (thanks to @empire), feeling creatively free, and excited about what's to come this year. I am who I am, but my family doesn't define my future. . . . . . . . . . . #kortneesimmons #dontpanic #online #london #england #newyork #cornerofokay #blakeakanachung #singer #songwriter #producer #pop #edm #rnbass #press #russellsimmons #independence #inspiration #individuality #music #magazine #artist #empire #throwback #explorepage #viral

We spend a lot of time focusing on what someone else is doing, and why weโ€™re not โ€œthere yetโ€. Imagine what else you could do with that time. Make a record, run those lines, invest in a marketing campaign. Your journey is yours ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’™ . . . . . . . . . . #kortneesimmons #twitter #mondaymotivation #singer #songwriter #actor #creative #journey #inspiration #marketing #promotion #recording #music #acting #entertainment #advice #newyork #losangeles #morningthoughts #empire #independent #artists

Currently heading towards my next adventure, and it's about time I acknowledge one of the most recent. With each new project u work on, I learn something new. I portray a character that I might not otherwise get to be. My favorite part, however, has to be meeting new people. Forgive me if I didn't get to tag you, charge it to my head not my heart. Through this project, each one of you beautiful people touched me in a very different, yet special way. From James digging at my passion the first day I met him, to me annoying everyone on set, and everyone in return embracing all that I am with love; it's been a beautiful journey. And of course it was awesome to work with @mochabands again ๐Ÿ’™. Never far as long as you're all in mind. Until we meet again! (Also had the hardest time picking 10 pics of the many I have) . . . . . . . . . . #reflections #actor #shopliftersoftheworld #thesmiths #music #thankful #grateful #albany #troy #schenectady #upstate #hudsonvalley #newyork #set #movies #explore

Writing my own songs is extremely important to me as an artist. Sharing my voice isn't enough, I have to tell my story and share my heart ๐Ÿ’™ . . . . . . . . . . #kortneesimmons #beatsbymantra #singer #songwriter #producer #vocals #reckless #restless #rnb #rnbass #soul #undiscoveredvoices #topvoices #hotvocal #music #voice #vocalist #newmusic #indieartist #inspired #malevoices #newyork #falsetto #rasp @jsullivanmusic @theyhavetherange @anthonyhamiltonofficial @tylerperry @empire

Growing into my own has always been a difficult process. Wanting to hide โ€œthisโ€ or emphasize โ€œthatโ€. Itโ€™s caused me a lot of pain but over time itโ€™s gotten better. Flaws and all the sting has all but diminished who I am. Love me or hate me, praise me or shade me. This is my #independenceday
