Road Playlist - Week of 5/18/15

Scrubby trees mixed with lanky palms line the sides of the road as we make our way out of Florida and through Savannah, GA this week.  Aaron drives, Magnolia sucks on a ring pop much to the dismay of her mother, who spends her time making travel playlists on Spotify.  It's one of my favorite things to do, especially on roadtrips.  This week we're listening to some new stuff like Bahamas and FireKid, some roadtrip classics like Willie's On The Road Again, as well as wearing out my sister,  Menna's, new self-titled album.  It's always in heavy rotation in our car but this week it's extra special because she's the birthday girl!  I'm featuring one of my favorite songs on the playlist- "Rachel"- an incredibly beautiful autobiographical song about self-value.  I'm not sure I've ever heard it without getting a little lump in my throat.  Happy birthday sister!

Behind The Scenes Recording Our EP "I Found You"

Here are some fun pics from our recording adventure... Enjoy <3 _MG_4279 As I've said before, we recorded in our basement apartment, so what you are seeing here is looking through the window (a window between rooms like in a recording studio) into the bedroom, where we are standing in front of our flipped up mattress.  This is, from left to right, my sister-in-law Andrea, my mom Victoria, my sister Menna, and me.  We are recording the choir parts for "Holy Ghost".  _MG_4287 These women are not just family, but all three are absolutely KILLER vocalists themselves, so we were cracking up most of the time, having fun pretending to be cocky about nailing all the parts first try... *brushes shoulders off* *then smiles and hopes you know I'm joking*_MG_4303

Look at those perfect vowels... my high school choir would be proud.
