I go in and out of these moments in my life when I find myself really missing music. The simplest way to resolve this issue is to just listen to my own music, but when you’ve worked in and out of it in a close capacity for six years, resolving that void is a little bit different. Last week I received the sweetest email from one of my favorite bands back home. It helps that I love their sound (I’ve been a fan since their first single,) but they are some of the kindest individuals that I’ve ever worked with. I would have them perform at my wedding if they said yes! It’s this relationship and the relationship that I have working with smaller acts and acts like Mayer Hawthorne that are a constant reminder of how I came to be. Mayer Hawthorne is cool. He’s a man of very little words, but as we’ve all seen with his Lorde – Royals cover released last week, he is a genius. His latest album is a piece of work and one that I listen to every morning while I get ready. I didn’t get to catch him on tour before he left for Europe, but I loved watching these performances. It’s amazing to see how far he has come.
