Sounds in Color

IMG_0723

On this beautiful yet rainy Wednesday afternoon I bring to you a new and exciting new band. the story behind how I came across them is pretty interesting, However, I’m glad that we have crossed paths. Here’s how it all began . I have to admit I posted an Ad on Craigslist looking for some new indie talent and I didn’t think I would receive any responses. Then one day maybe almost a week after I checked my inbox and I received a message from this amazing young lady Julia, who just so happens to be part of a pretty talented band called Sounds in Color. I took a listen to a few songs and was immediately in awe of the raw talent this band possesses. I can’t wait to see where the music takes them and I know I’ve said it before about some other bands but I am indeed a new fan. Their musicianship and musicality are so fresh and definitely worth a listen. Below are a few tracks that I believe show the potential of Sounds in Color Enjoy!!!

Music & Me 

I’m just a girl who fell in love with rhtyms and beats. Who became engrossed in sweet melodies and whisked away in harmonies. Yep that’s me!!! From the first time I heard Aretha Franklin being played while my aunt was cleaning to hearing Michael Jackson sing I want to Be where you are, I was in love and his name was music.

  
Here’s a quick letter I wrote to the love of my life!!!

I can never find the words to say to describe you. You came into my life at a time when I felt like I had no one. The first time I heard you tell a story it amazed me how melodic your tone was and how you didn’t judge me. You seemed to except me for me. And that’s when I fell in love. I fell madly in love and it was the best decision I could’ve ever made. No regrets no taking it back. I give you me no holds bar. I use to wish I could marry you and live in happily ever after but I know I would have to share that’s just how special you are. You’ve made others like me fall in love too. Because of that I can’t be selfish for we all need you. Forever will I love you for you’ve shown me who I am. To simply put it I found me through you and I’m hopeful for our future. 

Lyrically Yours….

Who are you listening to? 

So it’s Saturday and I’m sitting here with lots of blogging to do and then I had a thought Why not switch it up a bit today and get to know you guys a little better. Now they say you can tell a lot about a person by what they listen to or by what’s on their favorite playlist. 

Now I know for me I have a very eclectic musical palate and so my tastes varies and depends on my mood. Some days I’m listening to my rap music Kanye West, Tupac,Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Jay-Z etc. When I’m in a more relaxed mood I’ll put on Jhene Aiko, Amy Winehouse, India Arie and so on and so forth. When I’m feeling like the rockstar that I am it’s all about Guns N’ Roses, Journey, Nirvana, The Script, and AC/DC just to name a few. 

Ok so enough about me let me hear from you. Who are you guys head banging or slow dancing to?
