This has been a troubled week. While we mourn our losses and search our souls for answers, I believe it is important to persevere in the things that bring us joy. I have been back in the studio this week (you can see some previous posts on my art here, and here, and here). In addition to my work, what I’ve found to always help heal my psyche is discovering and enjoying new music.
I found Laura Mvula via NPR’s First Listen, and was captivated by her unique sound. The folks at First Listen expertly describe it as: “agelessly soulful vocals, girl-group handclaps, and a heavily Vocoder-enhanced chorus.” You can stream the full album here. You can also listen to and enjoy the completely wonderful video for her song “Green Garden” below.
I hope you enjoy and I hope the day is drawing closer when we humans will finally learn that all is love.
