    I first heard rumblings of Bob Dylan doing a summer tour last week, and today I was overjoyed to hear that it is true – he will be joined by Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham for a festival of music being called AmericanaramA! (…) Read more »

    Once again I’ve returned from a music festival with a whole new list of music to check out! Unfortunately most of these are artists I missed at Coachella, and later regretted missing after hearing people rave about their shows! Either way, these acts are filling my ears with new and different sounds and I can’t (…) Read more »

    One of the best things about music festivals is always the new musical discoveries that you make. One of mine from SXSW was the California-based band IO Echo, which consists of Ioanna Gika and Leopold Ross.  Their music is dark and melodic, but also airy and light – a contradiction you don’t often find in (…) Read more »

    Music… I don’t know where I’d be without it. It helps me concentrate when I write, it helps me sleep at night, and it lifts my spirits when I’m down. To me, there’s not much better than live music. I feel most alive when I’m lost in a crowd of people, when the air is (…) Read more »

    For the past few weeks I’ve had one album pretty steadily on repeat: Isles by Wild Belle.  If you haven’t heard this album yet, listen to it now! It is amazing, upbeat, reggae-tinged indie pop that will make your ears so incredibly happy. (…) Read more »

    While in Austin for SXSW I caught up with the band Houses, whose 2010 album All Night was one of my most-played last year when I discovered it.  The band consists of adorable duo Dexter Tortoriello and Megan Messina, who are probably two of the sweetest, most down to earth musicians I’ve met.

    As much as you can attempt to prepare for SXSW, once you are there it’s like being dropped in a pinball machine – bouncing around from place to place with very little control. The music festival has grown immensely each year, meaning not only more shows to see but more people to fill up the (…) Read more »

    This week, two more of the summer’s biggest festivals announced their lineups and we’re having a hard time deciding which one we like more!  Bonnaroo has always been one of my favorite festivals – I’ve been several times since the beginning, but I always kind of felt like the lineups were never as good as (…) Read more »

    Deciding on my ten favorite albums of 2012 is no easy task. It’s fun to look back on all the new music that came out this year, though, and bring some amazing songs and albums back to the forefront of my mind.  It’s interesting to think about all the new bands I was introduced to (…) Read more »
