Morning’s in the Pacific Northwest have greeted me with a little fog this past week. And then the skies clear and the sun shines brightly throughout the day, but I know that early a.m. moisture means that fall is not far off…

If we can’t prevent it, let’s embrace it, and maybe even dance with it!

To assist with both, I’m suggesting some great new music for you to add to your collection. Ease into Autumn with:

Lionel Richie! If you love old school, you’ll love “Hello From Las Vegas!” released just this week!

Recorded at Zappos Theater at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, Hello From Las Vegas features Richie performing material from throughout his career, including beloved songs from his solo albums like All Night Long,” “Hello,” “Say You, Say Me,” “Dancing On The Ceiling,” and “Truly” and his time with The Commodores with “Three Times a Lady,” and “Easy”. The album also includes an inspiring performance of the landmark song “We Are the World,” which Richie co-wrote for USA for Africa.

It doesn’t get any better than this!

Lewis Capaldi, a young Scottish singer/songwriter has exploded upon the scene with his single “Someone You Loved”.

In interviews he has said the song was written with “open ended” lyrics purposefully so that it could apply to many different situations that people might be going through themselves, rather than being only about him. His inspiration came from a recent breakup and two bereaved losses in his family, but why it might resonate with you or me will be from our own experiences.

He says, “It’s very nice to have people come up to me and have their own reasons for why that song helped them or was important to them. It was nice to see the ways in which people are connecting to it. And it’s been alright, I think!”

“Someone You Loved” is from Capaldi’s’ Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent' album and is one of the most moving pop singles I have heard in a very long time.

Blake Shelton has knocked it out of the field with the country anthem, “God’s Country,” his newest hit single.

Blame it on my farming roots, my love of our land, or Shelton’s blue eyes, but “God’s Country” puts me in a proud as a peacock mood and it must be resonating with a LOT of people because it’s the fastest country single in the past year to reach one million track equivalents.

“As long as I’ve been making music I’m still shocked and amazed at the power of a song and I’m never prepared for it,” said Shelton. “‘God’s Country’ is an anthem for anybody and everybody who’s proud of where they come from. I’m honored to have been given this song from Devin Dawson, Hardy and Jordan Schmidt who are incredible writers.”

Old school, pop, and country - three great genre’s to listen, dance, or sing along to as the warm nights change into chilly mornings punctuated by bright yellow school buses on the road. (A happy but bittersweet sight in early fall…) Enjoy!

New Music for Summer Time!

Summer is here!

Bring on the picnics, beach days, ice cream trucks, book lists, and feelin’ fine music!

So many concerts, so little time! No warm-weather schedule is so packed however, that it wouldn’t allow for some downloads and earbuds. Might I suggest…

Katy Perry’s new single, Never Really Over. I find myself singing along in the car with Blessing and Delilah Jr… It’s contagiously catchy and fun, but what else could it be? It’s from Katy Perry!

Or how ‘bout those Jonas Brothers?! Charming, handsome, and hip; I’m a sucker for their new single, Sucker, from the album Happiness Begins and I know you will be too! Their tour kicks off from Miami, FL in August and wraps up in Paris, France next February. Grab tickets when they’re in your area!

Meanwhile, P!nk’s new album, Hurts 2B Human found itself in the No. 1 spot on Billboards top 200 list back in March. Walk Me Home is another great sing-along as I shuttle kids back and forth, and the album is packed full of what I know will be your new favorites!

And, I can hardly wait for Lover, one of the most anticipated albums of the year from Taylor Swift. It comes out on August 24 and features the fab singles, ME and You Need To Calm Down. Me? Calm down? No way, I LOVE this album!!!

My kiddos are all out of school now, and summer is fully underway. That means numerous trips daily between friends homes, craft stores, sporting events, and more!

Sometimes I feel like a taxi driver, but then I remind myself of how precious this time is. So much sharing goes on between us (not to mention the eaves-dropping on precious and precocious conversations) and our “performances” as we belt out the week’s new faves are legendary (in our own minds!)

I hope your summers are off to great starts, full of good people, good things, and fabulous music!
