I love this song for so many reasons. I love the way Jenn writes and sings. There is a simple, yet profound reliability and authenticity that exudes from her. She is one of those artists who I will listen to simply because I see her name. I know that there will be depth and quality attached.Read More

Technical difficulties kept me from getting this video to you for last month's video #SCS, but fear not, for they are back! You'll even get two #SCS videos in a row!
Enjoy this very Happy song, written by what I believe to be one of this generations best producers.
As always, thank you for listening with your heart.
Valentines Day is over. A relief for most of us. America’s great commercial holiday about love and romance has a variety of real life meanings and experiences, so it makes sense to me that this week’s Song Crush Sunday be about love. And what makes for a better love song than a blues song made famous by none other than one of my musical heroes, Bonnie Raitt.Read More
You just can’t go wrong with stacked harmonies, a catchy guitar riff with bouncing delays, and a melodic hook with one of the best captures of that feeling you get when you linger in a moment a little longer than other people deem acceptable.Read More
It's the last Sunday of the month, which means it's time for the special Video Version of my #SCS blog. This month, I covered Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass."
Every time a song starts off with a vocal as unique as Meghan Trainor's, every music professional jumps for joy. It's the immediate hook that grabs every listeners ear and keeps them listening. Add a catchy melody, a boppy, but sexy upright bass, and a clever video to match this amazing message and it's a guarenteed success. It was all the more proven so when this song quickly went to the top of the charts. Not bad for a twenty-something who grew up in the pacific northwest. Another reason why I chose to cover this song, beyond the message.
But enough reading, let us listen with our hearts, shall we?
Jill Scott’s “Rolling Hills,” is about as poetically blunt a person can get, accompanied by some of the best neo soul sounds that I have ever opened my ears to. The song comes from the album The Light Of The Sun, produced by JR Hutson. It’s a few years old, but it’s a timeless message of believing in ones value as a woman.Read More
“Therapy” is one of those songs that touches on something all of us can relate to, in one way or another, but few of us are ever honest enough to realize that we deserve help. We deserve to be happy, and that happiness is not going to come from some circumstance or another person.Read More
Eight bars into the song and the wall of guitars hit with lifting vocals chanting “whoa.” Even in these first few moments of the song, I was feeling hope-filled. I wasn’t quite ready for the first line to grab me the way it did, but it’s the hook that keeps pulling me back to the start of a song that I just can’t get out of my head. “I want to believe in a life that doesn’t believe in me.”Read More
It’s so very easy to be focused on the music I put out, that I thought it would be appropriate to share some of the songs I’m crushing on, that are inspiring me in my own life. They are the songs that tickle my ears and remind me to listen with my heart.Read More
