Here’s a fun and exciting SURPRISE POST! I decided to continue with my attempt at starting a podcast and the second episode is all about Taylor Swift. It’s crazy that this ended up being published the same week Taylor decided to awake from the dead of her break and decided to start teasing new music. While we wait impatiently, I wanted something else to entertain us.
Michelle Obama and Miya Folick have a lot more in common than you would think. Albeit very different, they are both powerful, successful women creating meaningful conversations around the same ideas of power structures, self-identity, the #MeToo movement and dozens of others.
I wouldn’t have ever thought to make this comparison between these two women, but when Miya revealed at the beginning of her set that she had been listening to Michelle’s audiobook on tour – mentioning that she had felt inclined to share this info since she was in Chicago – I couldn’t help but start a mini list in my head about the similarities they both shared.
Noteworthy album & EP Releases:
Drastic Measures – Bayonne
This Land – Gary Clark Jr.
A Modern Tragedy Vol. 2 – Grandson
Crushing – Julia Jacklin
While We Wait – Kehlani
Canterbury Girls – Lily & Madeleine
Santa Fe…27 – Lostboycrow
I’ve been wanting to update my workout playlist post for awhile, but I decided to just do a new post about some of the pop songs I’ve been listening to during my workouts that help me push through. I just recently started training for my second half marathon and my workout playlist definitely needed a face lift. A few of these are songs that I’ve relied on for my long runs for awhile – some over a year old, and some are new ones that I’ve really enjoyed listening to.
Betty – Betty Who
Let’s Try The After (Vol. 1) – Broken Social Scene
Why Make Sense – Heartstreets
Unfurl – RX Y
Berkeley’s On Fire – SWMRS
Super excited to share February’s Artist Of The Month! I discovered this artist right before 2018 came to a close and their lead single off of their upcoming album has been in my queue on Spotify quite frequently since. I had the amazing opportunity to ask Lily & Madeleine some questions about their upcoming album & tour. But first, I wanted to share some basic info on the sisters before diving into the Q&A. I hope you walk away from this blog post with brand new musicians to fall in love with!
The 2019 Grammys came and went in a blink of an eye. As time goes by, we start to see a narrative that winning a Grammy really means nothing, and I probably agree, but it’s still fun to watch and partake in live tweeting.
