i do music things with my butterfly wings.

Dan + Shay “Keeping Score” f/ Kelly Clarkson

Ugh. From the first few piano notes, I knew I’d like this song even though it would make be sad that I don’t (ever) have someone to dedicate it to. Dan + Shay and Kelly Clarkson are both class A acts in their respective genres so it’s no surprise this future wedding song would be anything but beautiful.

Some fresh new music I recommend checking out!

John Mayer “New Light”

I don’t know how I managed to forget to post this but it happens, even when it involves one of my all time favorites, Mr. John Mayer – or as I refer to him in my house, Johnny Boy. While his new song doesn’t even crack the top 10 for me, this video might be my favorite of his, it’s that freaking fantastic.

London Grammar “Rooting For You”

This song came out last year and I’ve been meaning to post about it but just haven’t gotten around to it. That said, I gave this song a good listen not too long ago and was blown away by it’s quiet epic-ness. Hannah Reid’s vocals are one-of-a-kind; both haunting and ethereal, they can invoke emotions in the hardest of souls. If this song hasn’t already been used in some cinematic capacity, it really effing should be.

Donovan Woods “I Ain’t Ever Loved No One”

A beautifully, heartbreaking song.

Getting Personal

My favorite thing about music is when you “meet” a song that just gets you – deep, down to the core of who you are and what you’ve experienced. It’s a real kind of magic; a type of audible medicine. The following songs speak to me on a personal level for various reasons during various times.

 

 

 

Dave Matthews Band “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)”

A beautiful, new song by DMB.

Hello Summer

Since we are celebrating the unofficial start of summer, here’s some tunes that remind me of sunshine, family bbq’s, pina colada’s, ocean waves, lounging on the beach and vacation. Enjoy!
