Music has been an integral part of my life as far back as I can remember. I received my first musical instrument at the age of 7, and by the time I was 12, I realized my thirst for music was bigger than I could handle. I learned a few instruments, and eventually earned a scholarship to college in Music (BFA). I am on a quest to find new music, and to be influenced by it.

I’m particularly sensitive to downtempo tracks, especially those without a lot of percussive elements. Should you find a rare recording of a mainstream artist consisting of acoustical instrumentation, please let me know– I’ll be happy to share my thoughts on it.

My Goal: To post a new song every day, for at least 1 year. If it lasts longer, great.

Here are the rules by which I will post:

  1. It should be from an artist who I feel needs more exposure. This means artists more in the mainstream are out. (especially top 40 artists)
  2. It should be from a recent album. “Recent” means within the last 2 or 3 years. It will be music from any time period. Recent music is too limiting. Too many great artists have been overlooked.
  3. It should be might not always be connected in some way to a previous post.
  4. It should be honest. This one needs explanation: I don’t care for Britney, Paris, or a lot of so-called “pop artists” out there making music. They aren’t in it for the music, and for that reason I’m not into them or their “art”. (Update from 2021: who the hell hurt past-me? There’s nothing wrong with Britney or Paris. I guess what I was trying to say is, I am looking for a feeling, not necessarily a specific sound. The songs I post here all give me a similar kind of feeling. They come from different genres but leave me with a sense of awe, wonder, or a kind of longing to be able to create something as pure as they’ve created musically.)
  5. I’ll try to limit to one song per artist. (update from 2021: clearly this is lies)
  6. The circumstances in my personal life may inspire me to take a complete diversion from the norm. I reserve that right.
  7. new:Weekends are free game. On Saturday and Sunday I may post classical music, or a mashup — who knows. Look for a curve ball on these days.

I hope you enjoy!
