Im always self conscious about consuming and extolling an artist after they’ve died; cultural cannibalism as @vitruviansoundnyc calls it. But Aretha Franklin is an exception to the rule.
Aretha was the greatest singer besides maybe Mavis Staples (IMO).
Aretha was one of the first artists, along with Ray Charles, to sign a deal at Columbia Records giving her complete creative freedom in the studio to write and produce her own Work. β€œAmazing Grace” stands as perhaps the greatest live album ever recorded, and her most sublime vocal performance. I’ve listened to it from start to finish dozens of times, and rather dramatically and unsolicited, needed it to get through one particular year. And I hate sitting through anything church-related. Thank you Aretha. #queen #queenofsoul

@andreatanivideo took @theblueeyedbettys song about a banshee and pratically made it into a horror film. Best use of a bluegrass song since #deliverance

My nephew Felix, proving that it’s never too early to tackle the whale. Also, might I add, the innovative folks at @babylitbooks have created the perfect little adaptation. It even has all the characters (well, most)!!!

β€œPeople say to me, you know, banjo is such a heavy instrument, does it hurt your shoulders? And I say, well, my shoulders hurt, but it’s more from the weight of the world.”

Packing it in with @theblueeyedbettys for the next couple of weeks. Check the bio link for our show schedule. These twangin babies have taught me what it takes to be an artist by trade and I’m stoked to play with them. First up is this Friday, Long Island in the afternoon @usdanarts and Manhattan @thebitterendnyc at night. Come hear some steel strings and some vocal folds!
