Domestic Bliss

If you listen to a lot of music, it’s likely that you have plenty of artists that you end up falling in love with and following with dedication.  But I find that there’s a specific kind of “favorite artist” that you start to listen to and they instantly click with you, whether through a perfect, poetic composition of […]

Ever Out of Touch

It’s been a handful of years since a friend introduced me to Emilie Autumn’s music and I first heard her album Enchant, but all this time later, I still find myself blown away by the power within her song “Ever.”  The soft, piano-driven piece is calm on its surface, but beneath the flowing strings and soothing vocals […]

Chance Musical Encounters

It’s astounding how you often find new music to listen to in the most unusual places.  With music surrounding us on a daily basis, between being in commercials, in TV and movies, in other people’s MP3 players or car radios, and on social media, there’s so much that you tune out.  Yet, one of those […]
