How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

This Is Only the Beginning Listen to the ethereal echo, her goddess’ call. A song so beautiful it’s as if it was created from the heavens above. Listen as the strings tremble and the trumpets sound. Watch as a soul divided dances in rhythm and breathes in rhyme. Watch as we leave one life behind…

Press Play Friday: Lily & The Parlour Tricks

“They say it so much better than I possibly ever can.” It was accidental, my discovery, entirely serendipitous.

Download This! (Lyric Video Edition)

Video Killed the Radio Star There’s this new thing that’s very popular in the music world. It’s called a lyric video, and it’s a music video that really isn’t a music video. Confusing, I know. Back in the old days, I’m sure we all remember, there was one video for one song. Now, it’s not…

She & Him “Never Wanted Your Love”
