Wake Up Hungry


Been slightly overwhelmed with new music lately, like I’m catching up on all the quality indy releases that I missed while on the road, and there where MANY. It also seems like artists & labels love dropping tons of new material right at the start of the new year. Whatever the case may be, my “New Additions” playlist is all over the place and overflowing. Can’t lie, watching King Kendrick’s Grammy performance also had a pretty powerful effect on me- just being reminded of the level of intense emotion that can be expressed in a song, and the bravery to say it loudly in front of millions of people. I woke up hungry for more music, powerful sounds, thirsting to manifest distant echoes that I hear in my head. I’m hoping today, as always, that sharing these songs here helps feeds your creativity, somewhere out there over the internet, wherever you may be. Today’s photo comes courtesy my homie Ravi Vora who is also a constant source of visual inspiration. Check out his insane insta-feed if you ever feel lacking for dreams. Also, for anyone in Los Angeles area, I’ll be doing a big show on Saturday night at the Globe Theater opening up for 2 legends: Questlove + Gaslamp Killer.
