I just got back from a really fun weekend away with some of my good girlfriends and Kevin is off all week! I am feeling really thankful as I type this. I am so blessed to have such good friends. I had such an amazing time with them all and it was good to get away. And it was good to miss my kids and husband! Sometimes I take them for granted. My heart feels really full!!
While I have a little time, I wanted to post about one of my new music faves: Greg Laswell. He's from Cali and has been around for a couple of years and I am really enjoying his sound. You may have heard his music on shows like 'Without A Trace', 'Grey's Anatomy' (which has really become a stupid show by the way), 'The Hills' and many more. He is also pretty tight with the super talented Ingrid Michaelson. I guess if you like labels, you would call his music "alternative." What really pulled me in is the depth and personality in his writing - each song tells a story. His voice is so comforting too. Like a worn in pair of jeans.
I have both of his albums and they've both been playing 24/7 since I got them a couple of months ago!! I don't think I will ever tire of them!! The first album is called 'Through Toledo.' Here are a couple of songs from that..... it was harder to find them on youtube because it's an older album.....
'Sing, Teresa Says'
'High and Low' - Live and so amazing!!!
The newest album is called 'Three Flights From Alto Nido' and it is superb! The name of the album translates to "high nest" in Spanish. He said that three flights up means that you're on your way to the high nest though you're not quite there yet. Cool, huh?
'Comes and Goes' - I love this one. It's about the tough times we all deal with at some point in our lives and how everything comes and goes in waves of good and bad. You just have to wait for the next wave and ride it to see where it goes!
'How the Day Sounds' - LOVE it
'Days Go On'
'The One I Love'
'And Then You' - sweet, slow song
There are so many other beautiful songs on both albums that I wasn't able to share because they aren't on youtube!!! So if you like what you've heard here, check the rest of his music out on amazon or playlist. Every single song of his is amazing and worth listening to over and over!!!!
