Adele vs. Ohio Players - Rolling in the Fire (Wick-it Remix)
I fucking hate it when someone makes me do shit that hinders me from practicing or playing music in general.
I would legitimately do everything in my power to stop it, regardless of if it ruined the ceremony.
The Triangle Dilemma: Music Edition
And then some days it’s like “Pick 0 or GTFO”
Good tone and correct tempo…. it’s always technique with me :/

What piece is this?
Produced by Cason Cooley and Vienna Teng
Every songwriter is, in some sense, married to music. But not all marriages look the same or follow the same arc.
After about seven years of recording and touring, in 2010 I moved to Michigan for graduate school, to study business and environmental science. It was part of an agreement I’d made with my muse from the beginning: that at some point, when it felt right, I’d get to devote my time to something else. I’d move away from hanging my livelihood and my identity on songwriting, and do it just for fun again.
This album is a document of that new relationship. “Just for fun,” as it turns out, means starting with percussion loops or guitar instead of piano; inviting friends and strangers to contribute along the way; and writing songs music-first, with no lyrics for months, until it occurs to me that even grand dramas like Occupy and climate change are love stories at their core. I’ve never been more excited or grateful to be a musician, and it’s exactly because music’s role in my life is so expansive now, so adventurous. May we be married for a long time to come.
I’ve been listening to this album on repeat for about two weeks.
