I often play full albums when I make Jewelry. Neutral Milk Hotel’s “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” has always been a popular choice for me while working.
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.”
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.
