Yes, it's official, the process of writing my debut album has begun! This has already been the most personal and most collaborative project I've ever done. I'm working with the wonderfully talented Alex Smith on this music and it's developing beautifully. I want to keep you in the loop every step of the way, so...
This whole thing began with INSPIRATION! I've been like a sponge lately, soaking up everything. I'm starting a #musicmonday which will be featured here every Monday. I'll be posting music that is inspiring my album! Check out these tunes/musicians and please comment - I'd love to hear your thoughts!
ALBUM INSPIRATION #1: "Whiskey Legs" - Tedeschi Trucks Band
I've been listening to a lot of Tedeschi Trucks Band. Their music instantly reminded me of my parents and the funk/blues music they listened to in my childhood. This song is called "Whiskey Legs" from their Made Up Mind album released last fall. I love the grittiness of this music and the driving percussion on this song in particular. Very groovy, but still takes you to unexpected places. Enjoy!
