Hyperballad - Bjork

I have always enjoyed this song because it speaks of the strange rituals people use to maintain balance and happiness in their lives. There is a sense of secrecy attached, as these small routines take on a life of their own.

It is inspiring when art is interpreted in different ways, and this song holds the potential for endless explanations. I have always associated it with the need to let go of things that no longer allow you to progress.

Creativity often arises after experiencing love and the loss of it.  I appreciate this song about heartbreak because it balances vulnerability with a sense of pride.  The last full minute of the song is my favorite.

The Altruist - Saddles

Since moving to Phoenix, Arizona, I have been fortunate to meet lots of creative and inspiring people.  Saddles is an example of the local talent that motivates me to create. This song is from their newly released album, “ Yoke.”

Gay Human Bones - Harlem

I was excited when I moved to Tucson, Arizona after attending high school in a Virginia suburb. The desert landscape, colorful homes and alternative music felt so vibrant.  Harlem is a garage band that originated in Tucson during this time of my life.

Castigadas En El Granero - Hinds

I first discovered the Madrid rock band Hinds (then known as Deers) while living abroad. My years in Spain were spent teaching English and I was charmed by the talent, style and rebellious nature of the Spanish youth. Hinds is no exception and reminds me of the inspiration that my students constantly gave me.

Choosing to live a less traditional lifestyle is often met with misunderstanding, which many creative people can relate to. This song reinforces my belief in the importance of dismissing these misconceptions.
