I was bored the other day while doing laundry, practising guitar. And I thought, why not bring a bit of music to the world, so here’s my girl version of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘I’m on Fire.’ Hope you like it. I will probably do more as the rounds go spinning through the gentle white machine, and […]
I’m not fully versed on everything that has been released in 2015, but I have compiled the songs that I, for whatever reasons, have strolled across, during the past dynamic year of 2015. It’s been one filled with love and happiness, and I wanted to celebrate that with some songs that really uplift and speak […]
I don’t know about you, but this is looking like an ideal family Christmas — good thing Snoop is around to remind us all of what values we should prioritize during the holidays.

The Grammy’s were good enough to beat the best dreams about the Grammys this year (Rihanna *amazi*) – can’t wait now for the Juno’s where some Canadian musical talent is recognized, like Kathleen Edwards. Below:
