Among my circle of friends I’ve proclaimed my love of Gallant and how 2016 is going to be a big year for the crooner and I think I may have missed a bit, dude is about to blow up. Give a listen to his track, “Skipping Stones” featuring Jhene Aiko which was release via Red Bull Sound Select. WOW!

I still can’t accept that musicians seem to be dropping like flies this year. Crazy and sad but there has to be something to be done in their honor and that is celebrate their lives and the music they gifted us. This one, this one strikes me in a whole different way, I grew up listening to Earth, Wind & Fire because of my parents. They were a staple on rotation in the car, on reel to reel, cassette to CD to iPod, etc., really for my whole life thanks to my parents (and where I get my music tastes from) and this one hits us hard as a family but we’ll raise a glass, crank up the stereo and pay respect to Maurice White. Your music and place in history will never be forgotten. Now go enjoy that amazing concert that’s happening in a far, far away place! – February 2016 Playlist
