It's no secret that I love music. If you're around me for any length of time you'll hear humming, or flat out belting of tunes. If my mouth absolutely must remain silent, you'll find me doing sign language, drumming the beat out on the steering wheel, or bopping my head. I simply can't help myself! Mat Kearney's music is some of my favorite to drive or work to, so when One2One Network gave the the opportunity to review the new Young Love album I had to say yes!! Mat Kearney's third album, Young Love, hit stores the first week of August, debuting on the #1 spot on iTunes Album and Rock charts! His
I haven't done a music review in a long time. They're kind of my treat to myself, for working so hard on coding, designing, and (sometimes) writing. When One2One Network has a new album up for review, I get excited. :-) For the past couple of hours, Yanni's new album, Truth of Touch, has been looping in the background while I work. It's the perfect music for when you want a little something to break the silence, but you don't really want to be drawn into the music and distracted from the task at hand... It's like rain. It soothes and it relaxes, but it doesn't take away or over power. His first
When given the chance to review music, I take it. I pride myself in liking a wide variety of genres and styles and I love to discover new artists. If not for blogging and reviewing CD's, I wouldn't know about One eskimO or Diane Birch, nor would I have fallen in love with Joshua Bell. All of these have become favorites that I listen to on a regular basis. So, when someone asked if I'd like to review Paula Cole's new album, ITHACA, I listened to a sample song, thought it was something I'd like, and agreed. The verdict: Have you ever seen an ice cream flavor that sounded like a hurricane for the taste
Since music is pretty much all I need to live, (food being optional) making music a part of this site has always been a must. It's part of bringing who I am, and what I love to this space. I like to listen to music while I work, study, or drive. My favorites to listen to during work include anything ambient, piano rock, and ballads. Nora Jones, Diane Birch, Sarah McLaughlan, Jars of Clay, Moby, David Grey, Elton John, and now, One eskimO...
I grew up listening to music. Mostly classical, with a little old fashioned gospel music thrown in. It wasn't till I was around 17 that I was introduced to other genres of gospel music, and then a year or two more before I started listening to all kinds. I can honestly say I like all kinds of music. I have favorites, and those I don't like as much (country and rap) but I can appreciate all genres. I think it was my husband (then boyfriend) who first introduced me to U2. I don't remember liking the band right off, but some time after my first introduction, I fell in love. I should say, I was impressed
It is funny how one thing leads to another, and how nearly eleven years after becoming pen-pals with a girl, I'm finally listening to, and falling in love with one of her favorite artists, Joshua Bell. When I was about 14 I started writing a girl named Sarah. We had lots in common, including our love for music and photography. When Ryan and I married in October 2005, Sarah was our violinist, and provided the only music for our outdoor wedding. Over the years I heard Sarah mention Joshua Bell on several occasions, but I never bought any of his music because I've never been a huge fan of classical
