please let me stay

photo by meredith towsandits official, i bought a record player today! while sifting thru the blues section at angry mom records in ithaca, ny, i was drawn to the album “living chicago blues” vol#6. the cover of the record is a man and a womans feet, at a bar, with a guitar and a few drinks. the woman wearing a skirt with black tights and strappy heels, the man in a pressed shirt with slacks holding a drink.

the second photo was taken by me. ironically, the photo of my boyfriend, nick,  and myself  was taken in chicago at a music club! i have strappy heels with black tight and nick with dress shoes and slacks.

furthermore, on the back of the cover is a picture of queen sylvia embry, bassist and vocalist. for all of you who know me, know i love to play the bass and sing. and for those of you who do not, i have recently begun bass lessons and voice lessons. and have dreams of playing the bass and singing the blues.

i listened to the record and really like the song ” please let me stay” by queen sylvia embry.

im working on a comic strip that is about me and my artwork, music lessons, music shows, music, art shows and my bass. i dont have a name for the comic yet…any suggestions? i think music=art would be proper. i will be working on this throughout the week and will have more photos of the comic.
