on my 19th birthday the boy i was dating surprised me with a flying lesson at our local small airport. until this morning, one week before i turn 37, it was the absolute greatest birthday gift i ever received. today, almost two decades later, my husband finally blew that gift out the water. this morning, with…
happy second birthday to my bird. my second baby. my daughter. inside this last year i watched you become janet. my fiery, determined, brilliant baby girl. while this last year has certainly been a weird one (remind me to tell you about the worldwide pandemic one day) .
happy golden birthday to my sun – a boy with a personality as bright and bouncy as his hair! hunter you are sweet, hilarious, and more thoughtful than i ever knew a little boy could be.
today is international women’s day. this year i would like to celebrate my mama. a woman who by example taught me to walk down whatever path in life i wanted – and to do it in tie dye and glitter. she raised me to be loud.
there always seems to be one more craft idea, one more dance party move, and one more crusty package of fruit snacks we can pull out of our asses.
my mother came across the idea of chalk blessing your home for the feast of the epiphany. basically the blessing is a way to invite god into your home on the daily.
Amy Helm is many things. She is a gorgeous singer, an accomplished songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist, a Grammy award-winning producer, and daughter of Levon Helm (The Band) and Libby Titus (singer). But perhaps more than anything else, Amy Helm is an absolute artist’s artist. She has spent the better portion of her life creating music and performing both alongside and in front of extraordinary musicians and singers. In 2004, Amy and her father began Midnight Rambles at the Levon Helm Studio Barn at his home in Woodstock, N.Y. Fifteen years later, the Midnight Rambles continue to offer artists a unique space to come together to perform for intimate audiences and even enjoy homemade food as a community.
The world first fell in love with Of Monsters and Men in 2011 when the band launched their debut studio album My Head Is An Animal. Their smash hit “Little Talks” skyrocketed the group to superstardom. In the years since, Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir (vocals/ guitar), Ragnar Þórhallsson (vocals/ guitar), Arnar Rósenkranz Hilmarsson (drums/ percussion), Brynjar Leifsson (guitar), and Kristján Páll Kristjánsson (bass) have been selling out arenas, building their own Icelandic studio, and following a wonderfully weird sound experimentation trajectory. On July 26, Of Monsters and Men released Fever Dream, their third studio album with Republic Records.
Summer is already off to an incredible start for Walk The Moon bassist, Kevin Ray. With the continuation of the band’s Press Restart headlining tour underway, the Monolith Tour with Thirty Seconds to Mars, Joywave, and MisterWives just kicking off, and a debut acting performance under his belt, Ray certainly has a lot to be excited about.
For the last six years, alternative rock band The Mowgli’s have been treating fans to upbeat, fun loving music and near non-stop electric live performances. The world was first introduced to the optimistic and incredibly energetic band back in 2012, when a successful Kickstarter campaign enabled the group to independently release their debut album, Sound the Drum.
