On this early fall day, I'm starting a new music series from The Reverb Junkie called "Music For"! This summer, I started writing music where the only rule in the studio was to keep the activity in mind that I was writing for (in this case, summer chores!). I wrote with no real map or genre boundaries and VOILA, the first volume is born!
Ye old blog is updated and running again! Had many thoughts to put into 0010011101s.
This summer, I started listening to more North and West African music, particularly when driving in 90 degree weather with broken AC and push mowing the lawn (yep, the old school kind!). When the music played, instead of feeling oddly gross and sweaty, I felt at home and became more aware of the gifts given by passing breezes and friendly trees.
Up until this summer, I hadn't really explored my musical heritage or thought much about it, but I realize that it's always been waiting for me to take a closer look. Part of getting closer is learning as many of these new syncopated rhythms as I can! Here's the first one I can play long enough to capture 😊
😀❤️💛💚💙💜😍! WOW! I LOVE YOU! Thank you SO much for making this album release incredibly special. My heart is brimming with exploding rainbows that you are enjoying the music.
For anyone who could not access their download codes, we've sent out a new batch and will make sure everyone who wants this music can have it 😊! Thank you again, so very much. I am so very excited to be part of your days and have you in mine. With deepest gratitude, MC 🤓
Putting my first official music video out today! I used one phone, two lamps, three days, and four instruments. The cat knocked the lamp over a couple times, but it just looks like cool interactive lighting! DIY life is awesome
