There's a delicious chill in the air, so it’s time for some new moves. This month I’m working with a crisp attitude, a renewed sense of self worth, a new beat in my chest … maybe it has to do with the sweaters.
We're in a new music golden age. A lot of my favorite new sounds are reworking and twisting what came before them, doubling-back, and weaving themselves into the fabric of our music landscape. We’re in a beautiful place in music, revering Bob Dylan’s lyrical genius, remember Phil Chess’ immeasurable contributions to the American musical experience, and looking clear-eyed to the future with all the mojo and reverb we've got.
