5 Reasons To Have More Live Music In Your Life.

           I recently had the pleasure to take a break from studying and clear my mind to go witness beautiful live music with the smokey, flawless voice of Shakey Graves himself along with his musical buddies and opening artists, Esme Patterson and Rayland Baxter.  Shakey is an amazing singer/songwriter from Texas [...]

Sorry If I’m Not Distracted.

Through the last couple of years I have attended conferences, peace rallies, protests, etc. Every direction I've gone I have learned a harsh truth about our society.
