The other day I got a message from my sister asking me what music I had been listening to lately. I have music on all day in my studio, it makes it a much more relaxing place for customers instead of that uncomfortable silence. Some days if I’m trying to concentrate on something, it will just be ambient world music playing. But if I’m weaving I do like to play favourite tunes.
So I thought I would share with you a few of the songs that I am loving at the moment.
Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real…I really like a lot of tunes from this band, these are a couple of my favourites.
Eddie Vedder is another who I am currently playing a lot, the soundtrack from the movie Into the Wild I really like, but my favourite song of his is The Long Road with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
You may have heard of Playing for Change..it is a global nonprofit organization offering creative opportunities for marginalized and at-risk youth, most specifically in the developing world. Musicians from all over the world collaborate on songs and there are some amazing tunes. Here’s a couple of my favourites.
Through listening to the Playing for Change songs I discovered Roberto Luti, a wonderful guitarist and then from listening to him, found Luke Winslow King. I don’t know how often I have listened to this song and I just love it.
And finally an Eric Bibb tune. Only heard this for the first time last week and can’t stop playing it.
Of course this list could keep getting longer and longer as I think of more tunes I would like to share. There will definitely be a couple more music blogs in the future!
I’d love to hear what your favourite song or tune may be.
