Concert Review: Homeshake Calms Love At Market Hotel

Similar to The Standard, Market Hotel feels like you are in someone’s nice apartment, especially with images of trains passing by in the backdrop. The dim, quaint beauty matched well with Homeshake’s ability to slow the youth down. There are not too many artists that can make “calm” sound so good and so young. Homeshake,… Continue reading Concert Review: Homeshake Calms Love At Market Hotel

In his new album, MAKE WAY FOR LOVE, you dance under bright, cellphone lights with your “dream lover”, and drive away in a Cadillac-Uber to, hopefully, better destinations. I saw Marlon Williams… Continue reading Album Review: Marlon Williams Makes You Make Way For Love
