Day 2~ Nick Hakim “The Light”

Nick Hakim’s debut EP “Where will we go pt.1” came out yesterday. I listened on Soundcloud, loved, mosey’d on over to iTunes and purchased. It was the best thing I did all day, perhaps all week. I will be listening for days to his soul-FULL voice. Super into the EP artwork too.

Here, I’ll save you the step of searching on iTunes


Day 1~ Christine and The Queens “Paradis Perdu”

It has been 108 days since my “last” blog post and in those 108 days my enthusiasm for non-work related music listening has dwindled. This is a sad to admit. I love music; it is my passion turned career, and occasional burn out is an occupational hazard. Music excites me, inspires me, motivates me, and I know now that sharing it with you helped keep that fire bright and roaring. I quit quitting this blog. 365days of music, 1 song at a time is back.

My love for Christine and the Queens”>Christine and the Queens was instant, the moment her voice touched my ears, then straight to my heart. Her album Chaleur Humaine is out now in France and Canada; and soon we will have it in the US (I pray). She’s been featured here on 365 a couple of times already and that is because she should be heard as often as possible. J’adore.

Day 365~ Cat Stevens “If you want to sing out”

Day 365~ The final day of my blog. You all have been amazing followers and without you I probably would have stopped 3 years ago, but I kept on because sharing my musical experiences with you has been such a huge gift to me. It has kept me super excited about music, old and new, so thank you.
I might be back with some new ideas, new music, experiences for you, but for now I am going to chill, and fine some other new adventures to share experience, strength, hope and tunes.

So much love to you all!

Day 364~ Dan Owen “Ballad of Hollis Brown” (Bob Dylan)

LISTEN, This 21 year old/young man is absolutely incredible.
His story is amazing, he is amazing and has yet to record in a studio, everything you hear now is live.

He flunked his music exam. Well, of course he did. Trying to teach Dan Owen about music is like trying to teach a fish to swim, or a bird to fly. He already knows it. It’s instinctive. It comes naturally. He’s been playing since he was nine, playing live since he was 13 and will probably continue to do until he leaves this mortal coil. Dan is a lifer. He’s not playing guitar to win a competition, to impress girls or to earn a fast buck – though the last two of those would be nice. Nah. Dan’s the real deal. He’s in it for the long haul. There’s nothing fake or manufactured about Dan….Dan’s voice is a thing of beauty. It’s as much of an instrument as his battered Gibson guitar.
