♫ “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder)” by Maxwell ♫

Discovered this song when it played at work the other day. The best part of being an aspiring artist is researching & discovering great songs such as this. I stumble across other similar yet-to-be discovered songs thanks to Spotify and get to play them in the restaurant at work while customers listen as they enjoy both their food and the music. Plan for my future music to incorporate the elements of jazz, soul, and blues. Nothing else truly hits home for me like it does. This one definitely makes it on my playlist, and hopefully in my demo list — which I plan to announce soon.

Enjoy.

♫ So shouldn’t I realize
You’re the highest of the high
If you don’t know, then I’ll say it
So don’t ever wonder (don’t ever wonder) ♫

Happy Birthday to Bobby Caldwell ♛

Bobby Caldwell was likely destined to be an entertainer. The son of Bob and R.H. Caldwell, longtime singers and dancers who were also the hosts of an early TV variety show, Suppertime, he was raised in a world surrounded by great entertainers and classic music. Exposed by his parents to opera, jazz, swing, blues, folk and other popular forms of music, he developed an early appreciation for the different architectures of various types of music — an appreciation that would later help him to move from soul to adult contemporary to smooth jazz to big band sounds during his career.

 

Singing Group, The Walls Group

The Walls Group is a singing group who, to my knowledge, have been in the game for a while (almost a decade) and I have mad respect for their hustle, grind, and gift. Ya’ll know how much I love soul music, and lately I’ve getting into gospel music. I love the idea of singing/ serving God through music and being able to touch others or get through to others through the gift of singing. In their interview with Terrell in his show Song Association On The Blue Wall, he asks the group “How do you know if God is real?” and his response that “Just the fact you have breathe in your lungs, that’s God; God is life” really struck a chord for me. As a little girl, I remember I always being fond of church choir that their new found presence within the music industry feels almost like nostalgia for me. The Walls Group, take a moment to check em out if you can and let me know what ya’ll thoughts are.

Peace & love.
