Song of the Week: Flight

I was very recently introduced to Lifehouse. I mean, I’m sure I’ve heard them in passing somewhere along the line but a friend sent me a few songs to listen to this week and I liked them. As I’ve said before … I’m a lyric person. I enjoy words. And that is usually what will draw me to a song first,…

Jingle This Jingler

This week’s Song Of The Week is an attempt to curtail the Seasonal Affective Disorder that is trying like hell to take over my being. I adore Barenaked Ladies for their amazing musical talent and their hysterical sense of humor. Their version of Jingle Bells is my favorite of all time. If it doesn’t bring a smile to your face,…

New Music: Hollywood Undead

It’s clear to anyone who remotely knows me that I love music. I listen to music pretty much all the time, in some fashion. I usually have at least one earbud stuck in my face at work at any given time, listening to a very wide variety of things. I use Rhapsody on my phone and have a subscription to…

Camp Week – 2016

Last week was my favorite week of the year: “Harmony Camp Week”. It’s exhausting and exhilarating and stressful and life changing. It is a passion project of mine and I love it with all of my heart. Harmony Camp is a week-ish long vocal music camp, well really three camps in one, for High School, Middle School, and College aged…

It’s A Happy Song!

I haven’t publicly obsessed on a song in a while, so here we go. One of my current favorites is “Happy Song” by Bring The Horizon It’s a song that has an optimistic message without musically sounding like an optimistic song. I like that in a song. It’s a little sneaky that way. From the cheerleader opening … S.P.I.R.I.T! Spirit! Let’s…

Round ‘Em Up Let’s Go

I’ve mentioned countless times on various platforms that music is very important in my life and in particular, the lyric. I am a lover of words and a good lyric can cut right into your soul and speak directly to the very emotion that you are either trying to embrace or attempting to ignore. A good lyric can shake you…

Happy Birthday To Me

It’s been a few weeks now, but on my birthday weekend this year, my chorus won another Regional Championship and will be representing our Region at the International Competition in Las Vegas in the fall of 2017. So exciting. We won with a record breaking score, the highest ever achieved at our Region and tied for the 7th highest ever at any…

Pinch Me

My love for the Barenaked Ladies has been spoken of frequently, but this particular song of theirs has been rattling around in my brain for a few days now. I guess you could say it is speaking to me right now for some reason. It’s the perfect time of year, somewhere far away from here. I feel fine enough I…
