This short video won the Spanish Goya prize for 2016. For any creative person raising children in what appears at times a cookie-cutter educational system, this tale will resonate.

This is a nice clip: https://shapesofrhythm.bandcamp.com/album/cari-o. It certainly gives me some sonic ideas. In my other incarnation, I teach yoga. I keep on imagining a crossover electronic-yoga music project. It is taking form, but slowly. I am gathering my knowledge and dedicating more time than ever before to producing and singing. Today, I walked up […]Read More Straighten Up

Have a listen: I would put her alongside artists like Bat For Lashes or maybe London Grammar, which she cites as in influence.

Parece que hoy en día cada vez más, aunque lo dudo que de verdad haya cambiado tanto. Leen, señores, los relatos de los gran músicos de jazz, del swing años cuarenta, quién […]Read More La escena indie en España
The other day, I was reading about a Bandcamp success story, Zoe Keating. Interestingly, she publishes her iTunes, Spotify and YouTube payouts. This is really cool – and only a Canadian would be so transparent, haha – because it helps indie musicians to keep the faith when investment tops income year after year. She is […]Read More Track your streaming data
