I L-O-V-E! music. My life would be a boring monochromatic existence without music. I thrive on music. Music moves me, it inspires me and it recharges me. GOD designed me that way. It works out well that my husband is a musician. (thats him up above, playing some drums )
I do not think there has been a season in my life where I didn’t have mixed tape or “playlist” to embody the feeling of that time for me. This is especially true of summers. I ALWAYS have a mix of music or a few artists that make me think of summer, and most summers I buy a few new albums that really fit that. For example the summer before my senior year in college I was all about the Format. I jammed out to them and went to their shows that summer because something about their music embodied where I was in life at that time and it made me think. Last summer it was all about Metric.
With all this new exciting stuff going on with my brand and photography this summer, I’ve been in need of a little extra creative juices and Young the Giant has supplied me with that so far this summer. They have been on regular rotation on my ipod, with a few other bands during my creative time and I have decided that their music feels like summer to me. During the winter, when I look back at my summer I will think of Young the Giant. My summer music tends to be a bit more commerical and popular than my “rest of the year music”, And I am okay with that.
