"Strange Fruit" – Nina Simone

"War"- Nas feat. Raye

Yesterday, Donald, signed an executive order banning Muslims from specific countries from entering the United States of America. In case anyone is wondering, yesterday was, Holocaust Memorial Day too. I’m beyond livid. I’m livid at how many abundantly ignorant prejudice, and racist, people there are in this country. I’m livid that 60 million people allowed and supported this happening. Donald has been making these promises his entire campaign trail and it still never stopped people from putting him in the highest office of this country.  Read more

Happy Music Monday! This is one of my all time favorite instrumentals. I mean, how can you ever go wrong with the collaboration genius of, Duke Ellington and John Coltrane? There is something about the arrangement of this song that screams “cozy fall weather”in my mind. It’s probably because Read more

R.I.P. Prince Rogers Nelson

Today, I’m actually speechless. I’ve known since I found out this morning about Prince’s passing I was going to write a blog post, but about what? Who in the world doesn’t know how important he was to the music industry? Who doesn’t already know how he single handedly transformed music as we know it. Who […]

R.I.P. Doug Banks

It’s interesting how as we get older, and major life changes such as death occur, we’re reminded how influential many people have been in our lives. Some of these people we’ve never even met before, but we can remember certain points in our lives when their presence, however they presented themselves, changed our emotions and […]
