Thx @wearequilt for this message. I agree STRONGLY with this. We are creatures of habit. It takes 30 days of repetition to form a new (or drop old) habits. Adding bandwidth to our lives seems daunting especially if you have a good thing going. But there is ALWAYS space for growth. Music habits is the perfect example of our lives: we have the “go to” playlist we live by, or something new comes on & because living by “NO!” rules our life (“no” as caution/safety measures even before we truly explore what it is we are saying “no!” To)—-we change the song 7 secs in until something familiar comes on. Also living by FOMO this is how new stuff comes in: you don’t wanna be the only dork not knowing (name tik tok song of the moment) so in a defensive move to not seem old/unhip/cutting edge/or enough for whatever culture you rep—in my case “not black enough cause I don’t listen to (name pop fav)—-doing anything from a defensive stance is NEVER a good thing. My general rule henceforth is switching things up so you don’t get locked in the same routine (it’s been said our morning habits are like clockwork. Observe the routine you do in the morning & see how long it is before the one detour occurs in your daily habit. You’ll be shocked to see how repetitive life is) a small place to practice expanding bandwidth is introducing undiscovered music into your system. I know the idea seems exhausting—-like we know there are at least 50 songs that can move mountains for us that we don’t know but we don’t have the patience to sift thru it all so once again you go back to that tired “high school jamz” mix that leaves you stuck. Search for the music guru in your life & peep their playlists (ask em) take an hour a week to sift & absorb (not the 10 sec test/skip process) but be in “YES”/open mode. Once you master this then apply same theory to other areas: take up doodling for 30 mins, try new restaurant, watch a doc on a subject you never knew, learn a new sport activity, “get lost” for a day in your town (or new town), gardening—-all the life “No’s!” Gotta be a yes for you to make it over the hump post 2020. If not? You’re stuck. Once stuck…that’s it. Baby steps? Is music. Ok class over

PREMIERE: Meet Ali Aslam with ‘Wise Man and The Fool’

preview of the upcoming Ali Aslam album!

"This fall, New York-based troubadour Ali Aslam will release his debut “supersonic folk” album, The Last American. Aslam’s sound — a unique combination of familiar folk, rock, and pop elements — serves as a backdrop for exploration of “questions of identity, belonging, and perspective — not just as independent concepts, but as interrelated factors that inform our relationships to culture, each other, and ourselves.”

“Anyone with a background as hyphenated as mine — Muslim-American, Pakistani-American — will try and take ownership of that mythology, but also be fundamentally aware that our relationship to those things is qualified, somehow ‘other.’ It applies to my relationship with myself, as well,” said Aslam. “I can love all of these things about myself, and still feel, or be made to feel, like I don’t have a right to. I think, with this record, I’m asking if everybody feels this way.”"

New single is the first taste of New York troubadour’s album, ‘The Last American.’

For most of his career, musician Matthew Evan Taylor maintained a rather rigid wall that separated his art from his personal thoughts and feelings. That is no longer the case.
