Nowadays nightclubs are flooded by deejays acts. What about the other genre such as live singing that has been diminished since many years. Unless you get a hit song, chances are low to feature a night event. But Alexi Armandsen seems to have the answer with his "Armandsen Live Vocal Remix Show, creating better sound while retaining the groove and rhythm of the original songs to bring you some new flavour to existing tracks.

 Nowadays nightclubs are flooded by deejays, but what about the other genre of act that are diminished

Please introduce yourself to our readers.

Alexi Armandsen, host, singer, deejay. In that order lol. Been in and out the industry, for the past years because sometimes it is necessary. The music industry can be good or bad with you. So, if you can step aside from time to time, to keep your mind fully functional, just do it. I've been working with Jose Delgado, Danny Ulman, Boban Apostolov, Romeo Bravo, Jerry Wess from Futuristic Lingo, Futuristic Lingo, Young Marquis, Hi-Def, Roster Music, Loops Lab...

Who or what inspired you to get into the music industry?

Well, my entourage back in the 90’s influenced me a lot. I grew up with friends & mates doing music of all kind, guitarists, bassists, drummers, deejays, pianists, all type of music were involved. I've listened from classical music to nu-metal, gospel, hip-hop and RnB, etc. I am multi-genre. I am open minded when is about music. This morning I listened a classical music of 1928, Bolero of Maurice Ravel, a real masterpiece for me. My last concert was DISTURBED a metal group from Chicago. I can find inspiration in any genre. If I love it, it will give me a boost do to be part of the musical movements and bring me creativity. Music gives you such a feeling that you want to bring your touch too.

Unique vocal, unique lyrics, unique melodies? Can you explain us?

Certainly, each track I work on, I need to add some extra verses and melodies to obtain a unique version of the song in a way that says;" Oh that way of singing it is Alexi Armandsen. It has to be the same for the melodies and the lyrics. Each great singers I listen to, have a special touch. Listen to Sisqo from Dru Hill or K-ci Hailey from Jodeci when listening to them; I can recognise their voices, but then I know they will sing their little voice trick or gimmick. So it's the same for me, I have my personal vocal gimmick, and it defines who I am as a performer. To hear it you will have to come and discover me live.

How do you select your songs for your live shows?

I can select songs from all my deejays friends' advice or simply browsing websites made for deejays. A way I like to do is to listen to some mixes on youtube according to the genre I need to work on. That way I can work on something else while listening and if something tickles my eardrums, I just stop and take few minutes to get more information about the targeted track. That's the best way for me, cause I feel more relax. And i also select the song for his groove; I need to feel it, I can also submit it to ask some opinions from the deejays, to be sure that we connect with the live playlist.

What would it be like to see you in person performing those songs?

You will have the feeling to be in a private concert or should I say a showcase, cause my remixes songs are exclusively made for live events. Imaging listening to the last hot tracks from the charts and then coming from nowhere that extra verses or hooks that bring a new flavour to the original song. You won't be able to find them on the market, unfortunately, but You will feel the energy cause I want the audience to be happy. I bring a presence on the stage and among the crowd. Just imagine how excited when you were at your last concert, looking at your favourite artist and singing along with all the people.
I want to interact with the audience to make the night unforgettable.

You perform at clubs and different venues. What makes you different from other performers?

My vocal. My voice is my primary weapon when I host (and vocally emceeing), I am not kind of person that entertain by only screaming non-stop. I am gifted enough to be able to sing, so I use my voice. I sing some verses and hooks all specially written by myself; all blended into custom tracks from the charts. My team is here to helps me if needed; it can be for melodies or even lyrics arrangement. In that way, i can reach a great combination with the playing tracks that are designed for the shows. Clubs need to bring something a little extra to their nights, and this is why I've launched my "Live Vocal Remix Show" because I bring that extra to any events.

Having some vocalist during the night with specific tracks and vocal, give your audience the feeling to have an artist showcasing at their party. And it enables you at the same time to showcase your productions.

Tracks you perform live are in the market as well, or do you have some tracks made especially for club performances?

All my remixes are only customised for club performances; maybe I could release few of them in the market but not at the moment. The only tracks available would be my production, I have the chance to have as music partner few well-known names from the music industry such as Boban Apostolov, Rickey Rainbow and Justyn Brodsky to help me reaching what I want. Shortly I'd like to have some production from ‘the glowsticks” I love their style, and it might suit me, but in a near future when time and schedule enable it.

What's your music genre?

For live shows, my genre is clubbing (dance, deep house, electro, etc. )any music that generates energy, make dance people and where I can drop my vocal. Hip-hop and Rnb are also part of my shows; I love so much genre that I don’t want to be stuck in one and only genre. I am a versatile artist, so I perform whatever I want and makes me feel good, and people will feel the spreading love. I wish one day to be able to perform some slow jam in nightclubs, lol. But it will be for another type of events I guess unless I find a way to integrate it into my show. But all is possible.

What's the best way to book you for performance?

You can reach me through my website www.armandsen.com or at arman.booking@gmail.com. My website is about to get a lifting so don't get surprised.

Have you set some goals for future as a music artist?

As a music artist, I am trying to prepare few pop-metal-rock type of songs; I love that 90’s nu-metal sounds, and it gave me few ideas. I had the chance to recently start to learn the electric guitar, and I want to give myself a try with a couple of songs but with my touch, and a modern vision by mixing my favourite genre. I am blessed enough to have with me the talented Elena Kuzovkova from who is my new sound engineer; she has some great abilities in production. I love her vision, professionalism and creativity, exactly what I need to go further. She brings her expertise into my vocal remixes, and I can't wait to start to work on a full project from A to Z. She is the right person for my music project; I am sure with time the result will be tremendous. The Glowsticks are on my wish list regarding significant production. I have been following them for quite a long time, and I hope pretty soon go ahead with them when the time is right, and my schedule enables me to do it. But I'll do my best to have my projects achieved as soon as I can!

Interview with Julian Kelly - A Popular American Singer & Songwriter

Julian Kelly is a popular American singer and songwriter. She has worked as a lyricist for an impressive roster of mainstream artists and is best known for her melodic ballads and powerhouse vocals. She has been featured on the cover of All Indie Magazine, The Lizzy T Show in Canada, and has appeared on the radio show On the Air With Sir ( the host of BET's show 106 & Park). She starred in the Pindar Films horror movie The Devil's Courthouse and recently completed work on her documentary film titled Almost Family. Her last music album was titled The Family Reject and sold thousands of copies worldwide.

Check out the interview :

Love Music : Tell us a little bit about yourself. Your background, education etc. ??

Julian Kelly : Well, I’ve been around for quite a while! I was born in Baltimore Maryland and I studied music there throughout my childhood. I was really fortunate in that I had fantastic teachers like jazz artist Jane Lamar, Dolores McGowan, Victoria Lavan, and Helen Strine (of Peabody Conservatory). I studied music at a smattering of places, but most notably the American Music Dramatic Academy. Before that I’d already been featured in a number of national and internationl musical theater tours. I’ve been working professionally since the age of 12. Even with all of that, this is my very first Christmas album! Recording “Christmas Love” was a fantastic experience.

Love Music : We been hearing a lot about you, as you featured on the cover of All Indie Magazine, The Lizzy T Show in Canada, and has appeared on the radio show On the Air With Sir ( the host of BET's show 106 & Park), so we notice you’re starting to gain a lot of attention how does it feel ?

Julian Kelly : It feels really good, and I am tremedously grateful to every single solitary person out there who has supported me. Without the support and love of every single person who listens to my music and buys the album, I couldn’t do this.

Love Music : At what point did you decide to become a American singer/songwriter ?

Julian Kelly : The first song that I remember writing was called “The Poms”. It was an ode of sorts to Pomeranian dogs because I adored mine so much! I knew at around age 9 that I would definitely spend my life making music. Music has always been a huge part of my life. Music helps me to process my emotions and to deal with life.

Love Music :  Your last album "The Family Reject " sold thousands of copies worldwide, can you please tells our readers more about it ?

Julian Kelly : “The Family Reject” was a real turning point for me. It was the first time that I’d publically acknowledged the fact that my adoption had affected me on a deep and permanent level. I remember sitting down in my living room and feeling a tremendous level of grief and frustration over the fact that a lot of people in my biological family were refusing to speak to me. I’d spent over a decade looking for people who rejected me without even bothering to get to know me, and that experience took me to a really dark place for a little while.

Sadly, a lot of people let their own bias and fear dictate their responses to perfectly good people. So, that album was my way of asserting the fact that I do exist. It was a way of saying—regardless of whether you choose to acknowledge me or not—I am here; I am a good person; I will press on; your absence doesn’t get to define me anymore. I am a tremendously successful woman, but it stung. Nevertheless, I think that asserting your wholeness is something that pretty much everyone can relate to. We’ve all encountered people who have tried to make us feel “less than”, but the people who are really important simply don’t do that.

Love Music : Do you see being a singer/songwriter as a career, or as a hobby?

Julian Kelly : Hahaha. It’s been my career for more than two decades!

Love Music :  If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be ?

Julian Kelly : When I was on the National tour of Songs from the Soul, we performed at the Millenium Center in Detroit. That was a dream come true.

Love Music : What has been one of the most exciting achievements of your career so far ?

Julian Kelly : I think that getting invitations to really prominent award shows and openings is something that feels really validating! I’m always surprised when people know who I am. That said, I think I’m most proud of finding a way to stay true to myself.

Love Music : Everybody needs time out. What do you do in your free time ?

Julian Kelly : Free time? What’s that! Hahaha. I’ve recently discovered the Netflix shows “The Crown” and “Haters Back Off”, and I love watching them when I have a few moments. I also really like to paint with oils, read, take photos, and chat with the people I love.

Love Music : Any tip would you give to other musicians ?

Julian Kelly : Stay true to yourself, but also stay relevant. Write about the things you care about and don’t give up! Also, don’t take rejection personally—just keep going with your head held high.

Love Music : How can people find you and follow you online ?

Julian Kelly : People can connect with me on facebook at

Noemi Smorra - This Song

How easily we judge someone we don’t even know?

How easily we judge someone we don’t even know? That’s the main topic of “This song” music video with Noemi Smorra. Shot in Berlin by multi-awarded filmmaker Livia Alcalde, it explores a day in the lives of Raphael and Frederica. Their condition is not revealed until half of the video, showing to the spectators how fast are our prejudices and judgments. Raphael and Frederica finally enjoy a typical Berlin house party together with beautiful, multicultural Berlin people. There is no such a thing as being “different”: we are all humans, perfect in our imperfections.  


The single This Song (Marta Venturini, Valerio Errico, Kathleen Hagen for Warner Chappell, Maqueta Records and Limited Music Trade) is the last excerpt from the EP Trasparente by Noemi Smorra, known for the single Golden Leaves in a duet with the Russian popstar Lena Katina (ex t.A.T.u.) with whom she has performed several times in Europe.

Interview with Pierce Alexander Lilholt - Like A Boss

Love Music recently interviewed a famous pianist Pierce Alexander Lilholt - Like A Boss

Check out the interview : 

Love Music : Tell us a little bit about yourself. Your background, education etc. ??

 I am a serial entrepreneur. My background is primarily in information technology and intellectual property. Before college, my formal education was primarily based in New Jersey. I did some time studying digital audio production and audio engineering at Drexel in Philadelphia before I went on to earn my BA in communications from Franklin College, Switzerland.

Love Music : We been hearing a lot about you, and your piano music , so we notice you’re starting to gain a lot of attention how does it feel?

 I am flattered to know that I have something in common with so many people. I think my music is awesome, and apparently so many others think my music is awesome too!

Love Music : At what point did you decided to playing the piano?

 Pianos are tempting. Even people who don’t know anything about playing pianos still want to tinkle those ivories. I think people who have never played piano before are most drawn to hitting one of the white keys. For adventurers, it will be a comfort to know that if you ever feel like sneaking a few notes, all of the white keys on a piano are in the key of C. For those who don’t want to discriminate, all of the black keys on a piano are the notes of a five tone scale. If you only play the black keys, what your playing is bound to sound oriental or asian, or whatever is politically correct to call that sound these days. Hashtag black keys matter! If you have never made a piano make noise, I suggest giving it a try, because it is very easy. Unlike instruments which require practice just to make one note sound pleasant (like bowed or wind instruments). Playing piano is as easy as depressing a key. Piano can be very uplifting. I found it to be a fun and rewarding experience, and I continue to do so today. I love fun!

Love Music : What are you working on now and where do you feel your piano music is headed?

 I am preparing my YouTube channel for syndication on ​www.ULPTV.com​. I will be featuring my music as a video-radio channel on the ULP TV app. I also plan on reaching out to www.MusicianInternational.com​regarding increasing exposure for my superb music. Musician International is an internationally diversified network which caters to independent musicians from around the world. I believe the subdivision of Musician International known as the International Music Award Bureau may also take interest in my unique musical style. I plan on visiting ​www.MusicAwardBureau.com​ in order to submit my works.

Love Music : Is there someone who inspired you?

 I am very inspirational. I often enjoy playing the piano alone. I want to hear my music. My music inspires me. Experimentation inspires me. Musicians and music lovers alike inspire me. I am perpetually inspired. You would be hard pressed to find someone or something that doesn’t inspire me!

Love Music : What motivates you to do your best work as an pianist?

 All of my work is my best work. It is important not to focus on one particular piece of work and to look at the life of an artist as a whole. When you live your life as an artist, your life is the song. Everything you do is part of the masterpiece. Although some masterstrokes may seem more impressive than others, when everything you do is an art, attention to detail and adventure define a boldness that is shared by all artists. Being an artist is not about being different, it is about being aware.

Love Music : If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

 At this moment in time, I would like to perform on the top of Mount Everest while breathing through an oxygen tank. Apparently, the air is very thin up there, and helicopters can’t even fly there. I would be curious what a piano would sound like while resonating through such thin air. Not to mention, playing piano on top of Mount Everest would be undeniably unforgettable.

Love Music : What are your future plans to playing the piano? Your vision for the coming years.

 In the years to come, I would like to play piano with other phenomenal musicians. I envision a marvelous video-radio channel on ULP TV, and I hope to collaborate with other musicians who maintain astonishing channels on ULP TV.. I hope to receive many awards from the International Music Award Bureau. Specifically, I hope to be the first artist to win awards from both the ​www.WestCoastMusicAward.com​ and ​www.EastCoastMusicAward.com​. I would love to win the Sound Wave Award as well!

Love Music : Everybody needs time out. What do you do in your free time?

 I play piano in my free time!

Love Music : How can people find you and follow you online?

 People can find my music on YouTube at ​www.youtube.com/piercealexanderlilholt​. I also like to share my music on Twitter at ​www.twitter.com/piercelilholt​. To stay on top of all of the best of Pierce Alexander Lilholt, ​www.PierceLilholt.com ​is the best place to go for the latest news and all of the FUN!

Sweet Eve and Nick Menza

The heavy metal world was in shock when former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza passed away suddenly while preforming in Studio City this past May. Since his death the metal community has been treated to an auction for the late drummer’s visual art. He was also a skilled craftsman who made his own instruments. Nick’s passing meant the possibility of a Rust in Peace reunion has now passed. Before Nick died he had begun working on a project with a rock band from Los Angeles. Sweet Eve was recording their second album “The Immortal Machine” with Menza not only producing but playing drums as well. After Menza’s death Sweet Eve reunited with former members of the band and the group wrote, rehearsed and recorded the rest of the album with producer Tom Weir. Instead of touching up the tracks that Menza recorded Sweet Eve opted to keep them in the form that Menza left them in. The album “The Immortal Machine” is available now for pre-sale on iTunes and Amazon and it will be available everywhere December 9.

Interview with "The Feedbackers" A Punchy, Potent, Powerful Rock Band

The Feedbackers are one of Montreal's finest Alternative Rock groups, composed of four young energetic musicians who bring each of their similar yet distinct influences together so as to create a punchy, potent, powerful rock band. The Feedbackers are:

Mike Gerbasi: guitar and lead vocals
Chris Renaud: drums and percussion
Jorge Flores Lopez: bass, keys, and vocals
Antoine Bensoussan: guitar and vocals

Check out the interview :

Love Music : Tell us a little bit about The Feedbackers, its background, its achievements etc. ??

The Feedbackers : The Feedbackers pretty much started out when Renaud, Jorge, and Mike were playing for another singer.  We had a few original songs we always played but we never really found our sound and had never explored it in depth.  Mike seemed to think they may be in need of a lead guitarist to freshen up the sound. 

This past January, all three of us went to see the same Muse show, some of us twice, and Antoine happened to be at one of those shows.  At the end of the concert, Antoine admitted to Jorge his longing to be in a rock band, and Jorge took this shining opportunity to invite Antoine, without his (or the band's) knowing to a Feedbackers rehearsal.  Needless to say opportunism seldom produces moments such as these, as it was beyond fruitful. 

Since then we've played at the Emergenza semi-finals at L'Astral theatre, have organized and produced events at venues all over the city such as Hemisphere Gauche, O PatroVys, and La Sala Rossa, featuring dozens of local bands ranging wildly in genre. 

Love Music : We been hearing a lot about The Feedbackers, so we notice your Rock group starting to gain a lot of attention how does it feel?

The Feedbackers :  Feels great!  We love playing for any crowd, and a crowd who loves hearing us play really gets us motivated to make the next show even more wild.

Love Music : What are The Feedbackers working on now and where do you feel your music is headed?

The Feedbackers : Currently we're working on our first official release, The Feedbackers EP, set to drop on December 3rd.  We're having a release party at Piranha Bar the night of the 3rd, and we have all kinds of great music lined up for the night. It'sgonna be a hell of a show!

 We don't have any specific intentions with the direction of our music. We really love what we write and how we play it and don't have any intention of slowing that down.  There's no set pattern when we plan out our music, we feel it out as we go.  For us it doesn't need to have a specific style or genre, as long as it sounds like us and we truly love playing it, we're good.


Love Music : Who are your musical inspirations ?

The Feedbackers : It's all over the place, really.  We all have different backgrounds, so one day it can be Red Hot Chili Peppers and Muse, the next it's Rage Against the Machine and Deftones.

Love Music : Become the Day is the new composition by The Feedbackers so please tell our readers more about it ?

The Feedbackers : It was one of the first songs we had worked on as our current lineup, and we instantly found a connection between us when we put that together.  It was right from the beginning when we just found Antoine, and it became just so simple and clear what we had to do to make this song what it is now.  It's always one of our favorites to play live, we had so much fun recording it.  We love that song.

Love Music : At what point did you decided to make this Rock group?

The Feedbackers : Earlier this year, actually.  At the time we were only a three piece, and we were only starting to examine our own original music closely. When Antoine came along we really just dove headfirst into it, and haven't looked back since.

Love Music :If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

The Feedbackers : There's so many places to choose from that it makes this a difficult question. We'd love to play anywhere they want to hear us but if we had to pick one, Wembley Stadium would have to be the one.

Love Music : What motivates The Feedbackers to do their best work ?

The Feedbackers : Honesty.  We all know what we want from the song, each one of us just has a unique approach to get there.  Sometimes one person's idea just works in the mix of things, sometimes it clashes with another, but we are always honest about how we feel, and more importantly, no matter how we feel about it we give it at least one try to see if we like it.  Most of the time it's 74 tries and we love it more every time, but nothing generates better music than how open we are about what we feel the song needs.

Love Music : What are your future plans to singing ? Your vision for the coming years.

The Feedbackers : For the coming years, we'd have to say there's no set destination. We kind of look forward by examining what we've done and topping it.Going for bigger. Always looking for the next thing we want to write/ perform. We love reaching higher goals so we'll probably just keep pushing that boundary.

Love Music : How can people find you and follow you online?

The Feedbackers : There's a lot so I'll just list them out:

Aussie pop star Tom J Williams PROUDLY steps “out”

Aussie pop star Tom J Williams has been linked to Andrew Lawson, President of the US based entertainment management firm AMG, LLC. Sources close to the couple have confirmed that the gents have been in a relationship for sometime now and that it’s becoming very serious, and that a wedding may not be too far off. They also added that the pair have tried to remain as low key as possible, however the relationship hit a stage where it was only a matter of time before the details of it were made public. The couple has already sat down for several interviews in Australia to put rumors to rest. Their friends and family have known about the relationship for months, they see this as a mere formality more than anything.

Tom is best known for being a finalist on Australian Idol in 2008, as the youngest contestant in the shows history. Shortly after his stint on Idol he played support for the enormously successful band, “5 Seconds Of Summer”. Continuing to build his career he joined the Australian pop band “At Sunset” and began touring through Australia and Asia. Earlier this year Tom left “At Sunset” and is now working on a solo album and writing/producing for other artists.

Andrew began his career in the entertainment industry at 18. He was a member of the pop band “B-Factor”. While all of the band members were from the US they called London home, choosing to not release music in the states as they wanted to retain their anonymity. Following his 4 years with “B-Factor” he established AMG with the goal of ensuring his clients were handled respectfully, something he himself didn’t experience while being in “B-Factor”.

The couple has been traveling between Australia and the US sometimes weekly. However we’ve confirmed that they are looking at homes in Sufers Paradise and plan to split their time between their new home in Australia and a lake house in Maine. When asked about the distance and specifically how they managed to make their relationship work they expressed how grateful they are to not only be in a position to make their own work hours but also to be able to work from almost anywhere.
We wish these lads the best, we’re sure Tom’s ever growing fan base will fully support them.

Favorite Tracks of 2016: Jarod Powell

We asked the opinionated author to text us a list of his favorite tracks of the year. Kanye, Britney, and Brian Eno made the cut, as well as a few surprises.

“No More Parties In L.A.” by Kanye West:   “The last line Kanye raps on this song is hilarious, but he’s so earnest. He’s clearly very hurt by his cousin stealing his laptop. It’s one of the more genuine moments on TLOP [The Life of Pablo].”

“Trill Friends [Rough Mix]” by Erykah Badu: “Kanye’s beat and Erykah’s voice together is like butter.”

“Dollar Days” by David Bowie: “I’m dying to / I’m dying too,” is the key lyric in this song. Gives me a chill.”

“Brace For Impact (Live a Little)” by Sturgill Simpson: “Sturgill is a visionary. The groove on this track has a low and lazy swagger, but the composition sounds anything but lazy.”

“Real Love” by Big Thief: “A song about an abusive relationship that borders on whimsical. Unsettling. Not one, but SEVERAL memorable guitar solos.”

“Left-Handed Kisses” by Andrew Bird, featuring Fiona Apple: “A feisty song about heartbreak. It’s very tightly woven, intricate, and fun to sing along to.”

“Glowed Up” by Kaytranada, featuring Anderson. Paak: “Anderson. Paak had some great features this year. The beat is so chill, and actually, so is the flow. It’s just so smooth. It’s the type of song that makes you see the sounds.”

“Intern” by Angel Olsen: “I’ve been a fan of Angel for a while. We’re both from St. Louis. This track is haunting, sad, and very quotable.”

“When It Rain” by Danny Brown: “Menacing, punishing. The song is great, and the accompanying video is my favorite this year.”

“Girls @” by Joey Purp, featuring Chance The Rapper: “I love these two guys’ dynamic. They have really good chemistry.”

“Rubber Band Stacks” by Brooke Candy: “I’ve listened to this in my car so many times. It keeps me alert. Great for cardio, too.”

“Think Pink” by Molly Nilsson: It seems like most artists are trying to recall the ‘80’s/ early ‘90’s these days, but this song stands out as a true original. At once futuristic and nostalgia-inducing.”

“Higher” by Rihanna: “I love it when pop songs are raw like this. ANTI is sexy af. It’s my favorite album of 2016. So it was hard to choose. When Rihanna’s voice cracks, your heart breaks a little bit.”

“Make Me…” by Britney Spears, featuring G-Eazy: “It’s one of the better-produced pop songs this year. I listen to stuff like this while I write. The music sort of melts into the rest of the room.”

“Anxiety” by Preoccupations: “Classic-sounding. Heavy with mood. Dude is almost angry at his anxiety. You can hear it in his voice.”

“Fickle Sun (iii) I’m Set Free” by Brian Eno: “Transcendent.”

“Fill In The Blank” by Car Seat Headrest: “Really perceptive lyrics, with a great hook.”

“Cold Little Heart” (Live Session) by Michael Kiwanuka: “Emotionally intimate.  Could easily fit into the end credits of a Tarantino film. My favorite song of the year.”

“1990x” by Maxwell: “Most singers can only fantasize about having this kind of vocal range, and most songwriters wish they could write a song this tight. Pure pleasure.”

“Untitled 2” by Kendrick Lamar: “I love God / But I’m afraid of Godspeed.” My favorite lyric of any song this year.

“A Breath Away” by Clams Casino, featuring Kelela: “I love Kelela so much. The chorus here is guaranteed to take you higher.”

“Cranes In The Sky” by Solange: “People always ask me what I listen to when I’m writing. I could point them in this album’s [A Seat At The Table] direction. Brilliant but not imposing. Just sort of nestles with you.”
