It’s a Friday night and Miss Dolly Parton and I (that’s my cat, not the real DP, in case you were wondering) are relaxing on the sofa. Me with a little glass of homemade Christmas spiced vodka and diet coke; she with her favourite cream faux-fur blanket, which is getting a good wash. Together we are writing draft posts and listening to some First Aid Kit. Continue reading First Aid Kit for the Soul

Inspiring Musicians: Tyler Lyle
Hi! Just wanted to share this gorgeous song by Tyler Lyle – “Werewolf”. I discovered Tyler a couple of years ago when his song “I will follow love all the way home“ was featured on one of my favourite TV shows (sadly now ended) – Private Practice. I instantly fell in love with the song and downloaded his beautiful 2011 album “The Golden Age and the Silver Girl,” which was released entirely through Bandcamp.
If you haven’t yet heard of Tyler, he has an indie-folk-with-a-bit-of-country style, and writes beautiful, heartfelt lyrics that can make you feel like you experienced the things he’s writing about along with him, or else can easily relate it back to your own experiences. He is currently at work on a new full length album titled “the Native Genius of Desert Plants,” funded via Pledge Music, which I’ve been privileged to contribute to. In terms of the album name, Tyler explains that “The native genius of desert plants is that they can survive a long time without water. It’s been three years and six months since my last album. That feels long enough.”
