History for Music

5 links & a video + thank you!

Thank you so much for the over 1,000 comments!! I waited a bit because I know the comment number counts my own comments as well, but I think I’m well beyond that point. You’re all so fantastic and each comment helps keep this blog and me going! And it’s about time I post a round-up […]

Helium Hearts, we’re falling skyward

This song lifted me right up into a great mood this morning and I thought it was the perfect song and video to leave you with for the weekend. Jason Reeves is originally from Iowa and is now in California. I first heard of Jason thanks to Colbie Caillat as he co-wrote many of her […]

Recently found & worth noting

I’ve gathered so many interesting and news-worthy links lately that I’ve decided to summarize and bunch them all up in one post to share with you. I hope you find something worthy of your interest! Annie Leibovitz’s Disney Dream Portrait series – I saw a few of these Disney Dream Portraits before, but this was […]

Time to Wander into Gypsy & The Cat

I haven’t loved an entire album from a band, that is completely new to me, this much in so long! Gypsy & The Cat‘s song Time to Wander has made this Monday a fantastic one. Music is my best kind of therapy. A huge thank you to Kelly Ann of The Flowerchild Dwelling for including […]

I wanted to be like a window that you look inside

I first heard Delfina‘s voice a few years ago in a Nivea commercial and immediately tried tracking down her music. Some of my favorite songs have been found through commercials. From what I’ve found online, she currently lives in California and is originally from Argentina. There isn’t too much information about her or her music […]

I won’t live without it, I won’t let it go

This morning I got a pretty great surprise: one of my favorite artists Colbie Caillat (she’s my second most played artist on my Last.fm) has come out with a new single and her album will be released soon! The song is called I Do. Colbie Caillat is a singer-songwriter from Malibu, California and found fame […]

New, free music makes my ears go a-flutter

Some of my favorite artists are coming out with new albums this year and I can’t wait! Amazing, new music is one of my very favorite things. There’s nothing like a fantastic song to cheer me up. Add in that the artists themselves are allowing free downloads of their songs and it’s like the (vegan) […]

Sunday brings two happy videos

I don’t know which I like more, the song or the video. I’d been meaning to check out Brooke Fraser‘s music ever since I first heard about her, but it wasn’t until Let Me Like It‘s post that I went on a search. This video to the song Betty is the one I found. I […]

Watch this video and enjoy nature!

I spotted this amazing video on elizabethtown‘s tumblr page a couple weeks ago. I loved it right away and knew I had to share it with as many people as possible. But first, I wanted to know more about the video. I contacted Lab, the makers of the video, with a few questions. Lab is […]

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. You may have seen the photo/quote I posted on his birthday. Whenever I take a quiz and get the question “who are your role models?” Martin Luther King, Jr. is always on that list for me. People like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Ghandi, and Mother Teresa […]
