One of the best things about having started this music blog has been the artists and listeners that have reached out to me and shared their passion for music. In many cases, either a devoted fan or the artists themselves have shared their music allowing me to learn more about them and helping me to discover incredible songs, lyrics, and melodies that I may never have encountered had I not started pouring my heart out in support of this community. I consider it a privilege to connect with these artists and fans. It really makes the time and effort that goes into this experience completely worth it. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the letters and comments I have received in response to posts whether they be public comments on social media or longer notes directly via this site to express how an artist’s music has spoken to you on a deeper level, or the thank you notes when you discover an artist on here and you fall in love with their music.
In the coming weeks, I will be covering more artists on this site, talking about new releases, and inviting artists for the upcoming concert series. I look forward to continuing to hear from all of you music lovers. Please continue to share music you’re passionate about and thank you for supporting these artists, their music, and Back To More Cowbell. I never imagined that this endeavor would grow like it has but I’m humbled that there are other people out there who are as passionate about music as I am and selflessly support it in all forms and genres. Recently we had a new addition to the family and we now have our own musical mascot and devoted fan, Ringo the Wonder Whoodle, whose adventures are being followed by many of you on social media. Both he and I appreciate the love that has welcomed and surrounded him in this community. I hope we’ll cross paths soon. I’m excited to continue on this journey together. For those who were there from day one and early on, thank you! For the near term, I’m busy listening to new artists, the music you’ve sent my way, and attending shows so that I can share all of it with all of you.
So what am I listening to today? Well, here’s a glimpse of what’s been on my playlist this weekend. The highlights being Emily Henry’s Hands off of her soon to be released EP Matchsticks, Vincent Colbert’s Landslide:
Justin Timberlake’s Can’t Stop The Feeling (come on, who doesn’t love this guy! It’s been 3 years since his last single, and this song has me dancing around the room, in my car, in the yard, on the street…)
And last but not least, the song that never leaves my playlist, previously featured artist Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real‘s Find Yourself. Enjoy this video about Lukas Nelson and gain some insight into him as an artist, his band, and this song.
Thanks for listening music lovers! Stay tuned for new collaborations with artists who have been supporters of this blog and have their own artwork and crafts to share as members of this music community. Should you see Ringo and I around town if you happen to come through the DC area, please say hello! We’d love to meet you!
Sending you peace, love, music and light wherever you may be,
