"Take It Easy" - gnarz

Phoenix-based singer-songwriter gnarz just released his latest track, "Take It Easy." I fell in love with his voice last year when I heard the sweetly melancholic "Lost," and although I have a cursory knowledge of the local music scene, I've kept him on my radar since.

This song is a little more upbeat, and has a country-esque feel to it in places. I had to love the shoutouts to Gwen Stefani and David Bowie, two of gnarz's inspirations. In some places, it comes off almost like spoken word. It's definitely unique, and gives a glimpse into gnarz's promise as a musician. And his voice is great - rich and warm, it makes for very pleasant listening.

Check out this fun little track below! And if I see any shows pop up for gnarz in the Phoenix region (and beyond), I'll definitely share the details. 


  1. So proud of our son and his music ! We know one day this song will blow up and everyone will know about this hidden gem full of talent.

    1. He’s extremely talented! Can’t wait to see where his talent takes him :)

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
