Hello everyone! It has been awhile since we’ve shared news so there is much to get to in this Spring newsletter. Through the first quarter of the year we have been listening, exploring, curating and creating great music.
A big highlight during this time was a journey through the American South that my wife and I took where we visited some of the rich historic locales from cities like Memphis and Nashville to more rural areas like Muscle Shoals, Tupelo and the Mississippi Delta. Along the way, we walked in the footsteps of legends like Muddy Waters, BB King, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and scores of other legends, while discovering the humble wellsprings that spawned and influenced the greatest music on Earth.
I highly recommend such a pilgrimage for any true music fan.
