Chris Hawkes
“Falling Into Doubt”

This song played on MTV tonight. Chris is a great Texas (yay!) artist. I love his chord progressions. If you’ve ever listened to old school seven mary three, you’ll notice a lot of resemblance in the sort of dissonant chord patterns, and similarly how they resolve. It’s great music. I also have a thing for falsetto lately. This guy will be making a splash in the coming days, you can be sure.

“The part where you let go”

Like the indigo girls, the harmonies in this song are actually lower than the melody. I absolutely love the result. If I were to classify this group, I’d say it’s nickel creek meets Indigo girls. It’s a bit more complex than just that though. You’ll find many more instruments in HEM’s arsenal. If you listen to “Half acre” you’ll hear a bassoon, an oboe, piano, xylophone, clarinets, and strings.

If a sense of musical folk is your thing, you’ll really dig this music.

Sarah Bareilles – Gravity

Sara Bareilles

I’ve had this song on standby since before I left for my Jamaica Vacation in early September.
I just never got around to posting it — sorry.

Sarah reminds me of Sarah McLachlan a bit. I hope you like it.

I’ve been busy lately. I’m in the process of buying my first house. This website might be quiet for a couple weeks more.
