Well its been way too long since our last post - 2 months YIKES! We were on such a roll posting consistently for a while, but then life and music overtook us :) Since our last post we celebrated the 1st annual Teach Music America week from March 16-22 AND we finished collecting inspirational stories and quotes for our book "88+ Ways Music Can Change Your Life". "88+ Ways" will be published as an eBook and paperback on June 1st and will include over 150 stories & quotes including many from Grammy winning and Platinum selling artists & songwriters. I can't let you in on all the stories just yet, but I'm not too embarrassed to say Simon Kirke (drummer from Bad Company and Free) made me cry with his submission. Lot of stories that are going to touch peoples hearts and can't wait to share them with you.


One of the story contributors for "88+ Ways" is Jordan Lally from the band Fiction 20 Down and they are doing something pretty cool this year. They are releasing a new song every month in 2015, and March's release really caught our attention. "LOVE IS IT" by Fiction 20 Down offers us a much needed alternative to the disrespectful lyrics delivered by Robin Thicke and rapper T.I. in "Blurred Lines". Mr. Thicke may have been sued by Marvin Gaye's family for stealing the music, but in my opinion, lyrics that don't really respect women are the much bigger crime. "LOVE is IT" offers a light and happy beat with lyrics that emphasize the importance of love (real love) in all of our relationships.

Take a moment to take a listen to "LOVE IS IT" by Fiction 20 Down and then please promise me you'll treat everyone in your life with the love and respect they deserve!

That's all for today folks...I promise to be back with another post before the month's end and then back to regular posting in May. Thanks for listening and have a grrreat week!

Music, Love & Laughter,
