Why Music to Tell A Tale?

Musicto Tell A Tale is a new concept which combines a soundtrack with a serialised story set in the 70’s.

Entitled “Given Circumstances” and echoing the golden age of literature, the story will be serialised over 40+ weeks in bite-sized chunks around 2,000 words.

Accompanied by its soundtrack, (The Back Story) recording why author, Richard Parsons, chose the music, it offers a double whammy of classic 70’s music and accessible modern literature. Fancy an easy read? Like 70’s music? Then this is definitely for you.

Why Music to Conquer Mountains?

I’m a hiking girl. For me there is no greater feeling to have reached the summit, having conquered the mountain. The entire world is sprawling to your feet. Be it flat lands at a single peak, or an entire mountain range bolstering edged cliffs and snow kissed tops shimmering blue in the sunlight.

Why Music to Save the World?

Every hero needs an epic soundtrack.

And sometimes we need reminding of our extraordinary abilities to navigate this minefield called ‘Life’.

But, african artist seize to  wallow on those action, rather they recycled and tastefully created various mediums of art from the waste...

The music in this playlist is intended to compliment the feeling of being spaced out or “floating through space”.

Why Music to Sizzle Bacon & Flip Pancakes?

For some of us, waking up early is much more of a task than we'd like to admit. Sometimes the only saving grace is the smell of hot maple syrup over pancakes and a heaping side of crispy bacon.

This playlist is for those of us, myself included, who need a little lighthearted pick me up in the morning to carry us throughout the day!

Why Music to Taste The South

Normally when traveling around the country or even the world, one of the first things you remember about a place is how the food taste for that particular area. In the southern parts of the United States we are well known for our food. The term southern hospitality always seems to make people start by thinking the food of the south...

Why Music To Save A Lost Soul?

The Soul… that delicate, invisible, and tiny voice inside that makes us all uniquely human.  We can’t see it, taste it, or touch it. Yet, we don’t have to be told that we have a soul in order to know that we have one.  We know it exists because we can feel it.  We feel it in our hearts when we gaze into someone’s eyes, or when we connect to music written by another human. Music is the amplified voice of a soul, and when you feel it in your heart, it has the power to change you.

Why Music To Blow Smoke Rings To?

I've always been into listening to music, helped by my next-door neighbour, Derek Johnson, who just happened to be the singles reviewer for “The New Musical Express” in the late 60’s. Hence, I have an awesome collection of demo records that he used to pass over to me, and he also gave me a break as a freelance writer reviewing gigs; my first was Cliff Richard!

Why music to Dali and Jay-Z lovers?

Who defines what is art and what is not?

Is art, either as a form of self-expression or as an object of appreciation, restricted to elites and educated people?

Once upon a time, jazz music was born from the black people communities in the United States, a century after millions of them were brought as slaves from various parts of Africa...

An Interview With Dylan Dunlap by Rodrigo Medrano

Dylan Dunlap released his new EP "Feels Right at Home" almost two months ago. His past EPs and Album shows all the potential of this 21 year old multi-instrumentalist, but more importantly they show his way of singing about life and his way of verbalising himself to the world. This is why I think he's a perfect example of the idea of Music To Open Another Door.

Why Music to Rep New York?

Rumors of New York City rap’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. Don’t let people like Trinidad James fool you — there are a plethora of dope acts emerging from the five boroughs and the music scene there couldn’t be more exciting or diverse.
