Music Monday 10.0 – Miranda Lambert

This is the final Music Monday blog from BeaOriginal. Writing this blog has brought me much joy; and although music will continue to influence my crafting, I have a few new blog series ideas that I want to test out. For the final week’s Music Monday I chose Miranda Lambert for inspiration. Miranda Lambert, like [...]

Music Monday 9.0 – Jackie Greene

Last weekend my boyfriend and I waited in the cold morning air to get tickets to see Jackie Greene perform at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company Big Room in May. Afterward I visited his website to download some free tracks to tide me over until the concert. One of the tracks I downloaded was actually [...]

Music Monday 8.0 – The Beatles

“I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello.” Whether it be on the radio during their prime, on the oldies station now, or even on the Target commercial everyone has heard this song. It’s repetitive nature and catchy tune make it the perfect song to play over and over again in your head [...]

Music Monday 7.0 – Norah Jones

Norah Jones is one of my absolute favorite artists. My first exposure to Norah Jones came at the Bridge School Benefit Concert in 2005. Norah rocked the acoustic set with her band and I was hooked. I have three of her albums and if I’m looking for a quiet evening, Norah’s music hits the spot. [...]

Music Monday 6.0 – Colbie Caillat

On Thursday my cousin and I attended a Colbie Caillat concert held at CSU Chico. Colbie is relatively new on the music scene; after making a mark with her first album Coco and it’s hit song ‘Bubbly’, Colbie just released her second album Breakthrough. Colbie is a SoCal girl who specializes in folk-pop ballads. She [...]

Music Monday 5.0 – Dave Matthews

Even though Dave Matthews has been on the music scene for a long time, it was only about five years that I really started listening to his music. In 2006 I saw him perform at the Bridge School Benefit Concert and after that, I was hooked. I have a collection of his music floating through [...]

Music Monday – 4.0 John Mayer

Ever since John Mayer showed up on the scene, I’ve been a big fan of his music. Not only have I rocked out in my bedroom to his different albums, but I was fortunate enough to watch him in concert about two years ago. He’s a little crazy at times, and gives some pretty wild [...]

Music Monday 3.0 – Carrie Underwood

I recently heard Carrie Underwood’s new single “Temporary Home” on the radio. I was struck by the premise of the song when you really listen to the lyrics. The idea that this world is a temporary holding space for us, and that greater things exist. The final verse of the song portrays an older man [...]

Music Monday 2.0 – Jason Mraz

I was fortunate enough to see Jason Mraz (another Grammy winner this year) in concert this summer; I have been a fan of his since he first his the scene with ‘Remedy’ and his album Waiting for My Rocket to Come. I love the vibe of his music; it’s up tempo but soothing and relaxing [...]

Music Monday 1.0 – Zac Brown Band

One of my favorite winners from the Grammy’s last night is the Zac Brown Band, Best New Artists of 2010. As part of the new Music Monday series, I will be listening to music from specific artists and creating a card that the music inspires me to create. I spent today listening to Foundation from [...]
