Miami Beach, FL – September 6, 2014 – He’s a man of many sounds, mentored by Pharell Williams and most importantly a Miami native; Cris Cab’s highly anticipated album, “Where I Belong” is officially out and it only seemed fitting to have the release party in the city where it all began. Friends and fans gathered poolside at Hyde Beach on Saturday evening to join Cab in celebrating this momentous occasion. Cab serenaded the crowd with his sweet acoustic sounds, playing some of his latest hits including “Good Girls” and “Liar Liar.” The good vibes seemed contagious as the crowd of fans jammed out, feeding off of Cab’s energy all night long. Without a doubt this was certainly a night to remember.
We were lucky enough to catch up with the man of the hour before his big performance, and hear a little bit about what’s going on in the life of Cris.
WRE: How does it feel having your album release party in your hometown?
CC: It’s an amazing feeling. After so much success abroad it feels great to finally come back home, bring my music here and really start my campaign in the US. It was awesome to be surrounded by my friends and family as well.
WRE: Since you grew up in Miami, how has the culture around here influenced your sound?
CC: The culture of Miami has majorly impacted my sound. The Miami culture, and the way I grew up was very much so in a way that is truly only known to Miami. There is a lot of hispanic, Latin and Caribbean culture and I think you can hear that in my music. It’s got a sunny warm feeling to it.
WRE: Was there any specific inspiration for your latest album “Where I belong?”
CC: I wrote the album starting at 17 and finished it up at 21 so for me it has been a huge growing process and definitely a period of self discovery. I think that goes for anyone around that age. On the album I primarily talk about discovering your own way, discovering who you are, who you want to be all while figuring out the truth of reality and the things that are not.
After so much success abroad it feels great to finally come back home, bring my music here and really start my campaign in the US.
WRE: Your mentor, Pharrell Williams, has clearly had one of his biggest years yet, is there any advice he has given you that has really stuck out?
CC: Something that I’ve always taken from Pharrell is that there is no substitution for hard work and you really need to work hard to put yourself in the right position to succeed. At the end of the day there’s talent, a little bit of luck and timing but overall I would say the majority of it takes hard work to get where you want to be in this business.
WRE: What is the most exciting thing that you are looking forward to on tour?
CC: The most exciting thing I’m looking forward to is being with Pharell who has has always been my mentor growing up. His band now was my first band starting off, so we all know each other and it’s going to be one huge family out there. We’re definitely going to be having a great time.
WRE: If you can describe your sound as a landscape what would it look like?
CC: It definitely would look like an island with clear water that you can see over 100ft down, sun beaming the whole time and people having some drinks.
WRE: Who would your dream collaboration be with?
CC: I’ve been fortunate to work with so many of my idols already including Pharell Williams, Wyclef Jean and Dallas Austin but someone who I’ve always wanted to work with was Lenny Kravitz. I really think his style would mesh well with what I do.
WRE: Do you have any advice for young musicians looking to make it big?
CC: My advice to anyone looking to make music, or in anything really, is to remember that the most important thing is confidence and to really believe in yourself. There are going to be a lot of spectators and people who are doubting you, criticizing you or telling you you can’t do something so I would suggest you use that as fuel and believe in yourself. Take advice, good or bad, but in the end you have to go with your gut.
WRE: Who are some other artists you are constantly listening to?
CC: I really enjoy this band out of the european home front called Milky Chance. They have a great song out right now called “Stolen Dance,” which I think is really cool and a very laid back.
Take advice, good or bad, but in the end you have to go with your gut.

Miami Beach, FL – July 19, 2014 – Fashion and philanthropy joined forces once again as Style Saves hosted their fourth annual fashion show fundraiser on Friday evening kicking off Miami Swim Week. A stunning fleet of FORD models worked the runway at the ultra-chic Soho Beach House for the mission of “building confidence through clothes.” This Swim Week show bolstered the cause of Style Saves, which is to raise funds for underprivileged students in South Florida. In collaboration with The Miami Foundation, Style Saves works with retailers, designers and boutiques to provide new back-to-school outfits, edifying the self-confidence and assurance these students need to succeed academically and personally. Over 500 guests, including Angela Simmons and TV personalities Marysol Patton and LuAnn de Lesseps, gathered to catch the high-energy, back-to-back designer shows featuring Trina Turk, ishine365 and a capsule collection featuring Style Mafia, Kai Lani, Ola Feroz, Del Toro, and illesteva. Guests quenched their thirst from the heat with an open bar filled with endless Peroni beer, Aquaçai and Red Bull as well as delicious cupcakes by Stella’s Sweet Shoppe. In conjunction with the show, Style Saves also hosted an international online auction presented by CharityBuzz.com which gave bidders an opportunity to support the cause from afar.

Miami Beach, FL – May 8, 2013 – This Friday, May 10, marks the 3 Year Anniversary of WorldRedEye.com. To celebrate this milestone, we’re counting down with some of our most amazing photos that have been on the site over the past three years. Starting it off, we’ve got the best of what we’re known for- our celebrity photos. While many of them come to and live in Miami, World Red Eye has flown across the country to photograph and party with the stars. From the year it all began in 2010, we hit the ground running by covering the biggest names in music and entertainment from legendary hip hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs to Fashion’s infamous cut-throat editor of Vogue, Anna Wintour. The year ended with an epic New Years Eve party in Las Vegas where we still remember the amazing energy of having Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Kanye West all in one club at Marquee. After our first year, 2011 brought even more excitement to our lenses as we got to photograph big time actors like Jeremy Piven, Andy Garcia, Sarah Jessica Parker, and even former President George W. Bush, among many, many others. And then there was last year. Without a doubt, the biggest moment of 2012 we can’t stop thinking or talking about is when legendary icon Madonna made a surprise performance at Ultra Music Festival during Avicii‘s closing set on Day 2. World Red Eye was the only photographer allowed to photograph Madonna when she came on the main stage, making it a historical night we won’t ever forget. You’d think after each year, we couldn’t top the last, but 2013 is already off to a stellar start. Take a look back at all these incredible moments captured of our favorite celebrities- we can’t wait to see what this year will bring!
