I turned two today! Well, DoYouHearTheMusic.com did!

2 Aug

Crazy for me to think that two years ago I started this online journal aka my music spot on the massive internet aka a blog.  I think what I’m most excited about is that I haven’t given up and that I’ve tried to keep posting new, interesting and fun content to share with friends and people I have never met (closing in on 700 posts!).  But the most joy I get out of penning doyouhearthemusic.com is when someone tells me they love xyz band I posted, dug that new song or tell me a new band to check out.  Music is the universal language that can connect everyone in some shape or form and I’m just happy being a piece to that puzzle.

The last year has brought me incredible memories via music.  I spent 15 of the coolest minutes of my life talking to Mr. Jimmy Cliff. That interview ran in Vegas SEVEN as did my chats with Walk The Moon, Foster The People and Ryan Bingham.  I made my radio debut and started writing for a second publication getting to feature DJs.  I made my first trip to Lollapalooza (to which I am going back to tomorrow), I returned to Bonnaroo and reveled in four glorious days of music with incredible friends.  I discovered new bands and musicians like The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Sleeper Agent, San Cisco, Clement Marfo & The Frontline, New Navy, Baywood, Jukebox The Ghost, Zach Heckendorf….you get the point, I could go on forever.  I saw some incredible concerts with the likes of rising stars Vintage Trouble and Allen Stone to some of my favorites like Dave Matthews Band, O.A.R., G. Love and Dispatch.  Said goodbye to some truly amazing musicians who’s music I grew up listening to (RIP Adam Yauch, Whitney Houston, Levon Helm, Donna Summer, Robin Gibb, Etta James, Davy Jones).

All in, not a bad 365 days!  But where do I go from here?  Guess we’ll just have to wait and see but if the stars align, the next year could be the most rocking one ever!

Peace + Love + Music

    Congrats! Two years is longer than most of my relationships, haha. I remember back when you first started your blog, so it’s been great being able to watch you grow into your own voice and writing style. (Of course, it’s been equally exciting to be introduced to new music without having to do any real research on my own.) Excited to see what comes next! 🙂
