PLAYLIST NO. 2: THROWBACK THURSDAY

42490013

Fullerton Arboretum / 8-7-2016 / 35mm Pentax

over the weekend i was combing through my songs on spotify and couldn’t decide on what i wanted to listen to. i gave up and hit shuffle to see what the spotify gods had in store for me… and then a song came on that i hadn’t listened to in a veeerrry long time. so many memories associated with that tune, it made me feel good listening to it again. it got me thinking of all the songs that i used to bump through my speakers day in and day out, some now sadly neglected by myself over the years. so! i put together a little playlist for this throwback thursday in honor of all those tunes that don’t get much play time anymore… you are not forgotten.

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

KARAOKE

Donna Summer

ahhh karaoke, my favorite sport. get a couple of drinks in me and you might just get a full production- queue the lights and back up dancers. to me, there is nothing better than belting out your favorite songs with your friends (and sometimes strangers) over a drink or two…or four. i’m still looking for someone to duet stevie nicks’ “leather and lace” with me…consider this my personal ad. you can check out all my favorite karaoke songs on my spotify playlist below. please karaoke responsibly.
