“Little actions, like wearing a hand-stitched message on your chest, can spark conversations that we collectively need to be having right now. Starting meaningful dialogues has always been an essential goal of ours.” – Rachelle Hruska MacPherson

“a musician unbound, from the conventions of country music, from the tiresome arguments over what constitutes “real country,” from an industry that hasn’t so much made her a superstar as it has watched her become one anyway.”

“A self-described “Céline woman” of the Phoebe Philo era, she has the casualness of Bieber but the refinement of a woman you could spend your life trying to emulate.”

“I’m not just going to post shoes,” Welch says, “You’re damn straight I’m going to say what I believe in. If that has consequences, I think the consequences of being quiet are way bigger.”

“Her drive to confront structural racism, sexism and classism would be remarkable no matter what her age — but when delivered by an 18-year-old it is, frankly, astonishing.”

“Yara’s character, integrity and intellect are matched by a deep sense of purpose, which is extraordinary to see in someone so young,” said Burch. “She is positioned to become a voice of her generation.”

“Natalie Prass has a voice like a cupcake, a creamsicle, a rainbow. She has a way of infusing the simplest turn of phrase with unspeakable wonder, injecting a line with a trill or a breath, wielding pause and emphasis with expert, joyous control.”

“Ocasio-Cortez has become the new face of the resistance, electrifying the media, emerging as a hero to millennials alienated by broken government, and confounding establishment Democrats as much as the “alt-right dudebros,” as she calls them, who have attempted to trivialize and villainize her.”

“There are a lot of things that just need to change. And friction and conflict is just a foundational element of change.”

JACOB BANKS: THE BOY WHO CRIED FREEDOM

JACOB BANKS

i’m not really sure how i came across jacob banks’ music but i know that i haven’t stopped listening to it since i did; it’s addicting. when you listen to it, you feel the music, the emotion, you can see it (yeah, i’m going there)- there is this visual aspect in it that is really indescribable, which is what i think makes you want to keep hitting repeat. today he released his latest ep- the boy who cried freedom and had a chat with nylon about his inspirations, aspirations and sound . you can read the full interview here.

I love writing poems. I listen to a lot of poets speak. And then, I just tell the truth. I think my job is to help people get through the day a little easier. If I tell my truth, then more people can relate to it.

tour dates:

april 24th- hoxton Bar & kitchen– london, united kingdom

may 4th- mercury lounge– new york, ny

may 11th- masonic lodge– los angeles, ca

F102_FEATURE_Christine_rosati_09_WEB_tqnxtv

so much love for this human and how fitting that this post falls on a wednesday?? holla to my #wcw! when she released her video for tilted, i was hooked immediately. mesmerized by her movements and effortlessly cool style, i stood up from my couch (where you can see my imprint from a long day of surfing the internet) and began to learn the entire routine from the video (flashback to my sia-chandelier obsession). this is just the tip of the iceberg of what you can expect from the creative french native and i am beyond excited to see her live come april. check out the latest issue of fader where you can read the full story.
