New Music Flavor – Pokey LaFarge “Rock Bottom Rhapsody”

Digging into my Sonoma County roots this week with Pokey LaFarge’s new album Rock Bottom Rhapsody. This well-dressed fella is just as rockabilly and western swing in fashion as he is in song – it’s hard to say whether his sharply dressed outfits or sing-song blues will make you swoon first. As said by St.

An Ode To Anderson Paak

It was a summer’s eve in 2016 when I stumbled upon Anderson Paak, performing to a Paak-ed house at Coachella’s Mojave stage. Truth-be-told, I was chasing Kendrick Lamar. My entire weekend setlist revolved around where Kendrick might pop up, and once again, I was right. Sweat drenched and sardined between scantily clad festival goers, I
