A lot of my friends have songs with their dads.  Popular among the crowd is Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle, Dance with my Father by Luther Vandross, Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison and the like.  These are the songs that come on over the loudspeaker of a department store and elicit a cock of the […]

How’s this for out of left field? Picture yourself 10 years ago (you know, a decade), tending to your typical ‘your age today minus 10′ kind of day.  At that point in time I was probably sitting in a minivan, getting dropped off at the movie theater by my parents to catch the latest teen […]


Redhead rule of life: Never fail to celebrate the success of a fellow redhead. Celebrating: Ed Sheeran. This fellow redhead gained my affections when he performed at the Grammys with none other than Sir Elton John himself (talk about a stage full of my talented brethren).  Ed Sheeran’s name came to mind the other day […]


Oh, you wonderful Civil Wars.  You’ve up and done it again.  You’ve made an album that I look forward to listening to, even if I had it on repeat the day before.  I can’t say that I’m surprised.  The duo’s songwriting ability and lyrics in their debut album, Barton Hollow, hardly earned me the name […]


Based off of the sheer amount of love I’ve shown for One Republic and Sara Bareilles over the past few years (it’s a little excessive, I know), it should come as no surprise to you that one of my all-time favorite songs is a collaboration between the two.  What should come as a surprise is […]

Hello, there.  Remember me?  Probably not.  I haven’t seen you for 3 months some time now. (Time? What is time, really?)  And for that, I apologize.  It has been impeccably poor timing in terms of being a missing person, since I’ve done more musical things in the past 3 months than I had in the year […]


Dear Dave Barnes, I apologize if this sounds out of line, but I need to tell you something. I woke up to your voice every weekday morning for 3 years. “Until You” remained my morning alarm for 3 years of my college career. I never once got sick of it and pressed snooze not only […]


I truly and honestly believe Sara Bareilles can do no wrong.   What I’m about to tell you is old news.  She’s a great lyricist, plays the piano perfectly, has one of the best voices in the music industry today and, to top it off, a sense of humor.  I realize that I give a […]
