“So my go to is Tom Petty lately especially Wildflowers. It’s the album that made most of an impact on my life, and by listening to it now, I feel like it’s how I can honor his life and career.
“The Doors, of course, are another go to for me. I grew up on them, especially L.A. Woman and The Doors and listening to “Light My Fire” makes any day of the week feel like a Saturday morning for me. The Stones too, “You Can't Always Get What you Want” just makes me feel good.
“I am super into Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite’s new release “No Mercy in this Land” https://youtu.be/E2-u7PBKzxI they have released a few of the tracks. But the official release is on Friday. I just love Ben Harper’s voice, and with Musselwhite on harmonica they are unstoppable! And on that bluesy note, I am a huge Keb Mo fan. He is so inspiring as a musician and person, he sings the blues but in a happy way!
“Some others I head back to are Conor Oberst (of Bright Eyes) mostly his self titled album. I love “Cape Canaveral” https://youtu.be/Ol7UeGiv7n8 even though it’s sort of a haunting song I love it. “Sausalito” is also a go to for me.”
