Melissa Ferrick, a well known lesbian singer-songwriter of folk-rock, is working on a new album, Still Right Here, which will be released on September 13th.
The Organ was a band I discovered a few years ago. Unfortunately, this band no longer exists. Although their music was great, the band's story stopped after an album that will remain a pleasure to listen to for those who love good music.
We listen to music to experience feelings, to listen to words put together in interesting ways, to let the beat go through us. It is poetry and dynamic sound. How does music help us to live our lives though? It lets us know that someone out there has felt the same. It allows us to experience unity with a simple recording. In this way, it is integral to the way we cope with adversity, loss, love, and fear.
