Vinyl Junkie

I LOVE the feeling of purchasing new vinyl, opening it, devouring it cover-to-cover and painting my room with noise from Side A to finish, as intended. It’s like tapping into my personal portal of emotions, inspirations and beauty that can only be accessed when I listen to a record. It’s like a drug that heals me and gives me strength. Kind of like a super power. A super power to create art, grow and become my dream.

This is why I buy music. Real hold-in-your-hands music. Vinyl preferably, but a CD will do.

I originally started writing this post for one reason; The Sound Awake (my husbands) band is releasing their latest album on vinyl and CD! I am so excited for him and want to find any way possible to get the word out. Please help spread the word and if you want dibs on some free stuff like Original Artwork Vinyl (created by me and a few other artist), House Shows (that’s right, they will come and play your house show!),hand written lyrics and more. Click on the video to the right to watch as The Sound Awake explains their campaign and gives you a taste of their sound.

The Horde & The Harem

A few months ago, I received a lovely email from Jack, of The Horde and The Harem, asking if they could use my artwork for their new album, Light Rail Sessions. Flattered, I accepted in exchange for a copy of the album, and perhaps a future gig trade. After several emails and jpeg adjustments, here is what the Seattle, WA natives came up with.

“The Horde and the Harem are a ragged band of untrustables hailing from the Pacific Northwest. They boast four voices that combine in harmony over a solid rhythm section. Surrounded on all sides by sizzling and sputtering guitars, and anchored into place by the weight and grace of the piano. The results are thick layers of melody that infiltrate your senses, lodging themselves in your brain and cursing you with their inherent catchiness.”-[thehordeandtheharem.com]
