Song of the Day: The Black Keys “Sister” & “Gold on the Ceiling”

It’s a rainy day in Texas, I’ve got my glass of wine and my hubby with me writing some new songs. I had a great meeting today to talk about my new EP and a lot of discussion about who I want to be as an artist. So I’ve definitely been thinking about my musical inspirations and what kind of sound I want for the new record.

One band throughout this process keeps coming to mind, my favorite band, The Black Keys. Blues and soul speaks to me more then any other kind of music. Even though I am a lover of all kinds of music I keep coming back to my roots. The Black Keys create modern blues/rock elements better then anyone (in my biased opinion) on the scene today.

So for today’s Song(s) of the Day I chose a few tunes of their latest, El Camino. Oh and yes I just bought my tickets to see them in April..EEEEEEKKKK!!! 🙂 Enough babbling…on to the music!


Gold on the Ceiling:

Song of the Day – Etta James “This is a Man’s World”

The music world lost a legend on January 20th. Etta James was an inspiration to so many musicians, including myself. Her deeply troubled life was heard so passionately in her music. From the powerful At Last to one of my favorites, I’d Rather Go Blind, it’s impossible to not feel the soul behind each breath and note she sings. So for today’s Song of the Day I had to give tribute to one of my favorite female soul singers.
