Meaning in Music

Of all the songs that are played on the radio day in and day out, I have a hard time finding the deeper meaning in several of them. Don’t get me wrong, your girl loves a little (a lot) of pop in her life and I’m not opposed to listening to the hits on my way home from work, but often, it is only a catchy tune to sing along to for a quicker commute. Personally, I find there is nothing more refreshing than an artist who creates something that I want to take in every word of and try to truly understand what message they are sending.

Next week, many know and I’m pleased to say I’ll be chatting with one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Dylan Lloyd, who completely goes against this. Listening to Dylan, I know that when he writes, it is from the heart and done with thought, rather than as a rushed process simply done to release the next charting hit – although he has also had a few charting albums in his music career.

Ironically enough, his song that I currently can’t stop listening to is titled “You Probably Won’t Hear This Song on the Radio” and speaks out on the way we act and want change in the world but are so unwilling to change ourselves.

In spirit of the upcoming interview with Dylan (also my first interview for this blog!) the song is posted on Dylan’s Facebook for free and everyone would benefit from a listen. As stated in the video caption, he chose not to put it on any platform where it needs to be purchased or he could make money from in order for the message to be heard and shared as much as possible without being misconstrued. Link below.

Don’t forget to check back in next week for the full article and interview with Dylan!

You Probably Won’t Hear This Song on the Radio

 

Welcome!

I started this blog in an attempt to branch out and do something I love. I have always enjoyed writing, music, and getting to know others and in the past few years, I  have had the honor of meeting some of my greatest friends I’ve ever had through music. Being so invested in the overwhelming joy I feel when I find a new artist that I can’t stop listening to, I have found myself creating bonds with a few musicians that I have enjoyed. As I thought about how much I love these things, I wanted to combine them all at once. In an attempt to do this, I have gathered a couple of, what I like to consider “friends”, and invited them for interviews. These are what I believe could be the next up and coming artists – all of which are very talented and unique with shining personalities and countless positive qualities. This blog is going to be a positive space and I wish to leave “negative” interviews and articles in the dust, only posting content that is encouraging, artists that have a great impact, new music that I think you will enjoy, and so forth. I hope this is enjoyable and I can’t wait to get started! Sometime within the month, I will be posting an article on a brilliant artist, Dylan Lloyd, who has so kindly agreed to be my first interview! Thank you, Dylan. I can’t wait to talk with you!
