Passion Blog #9: When This Soundtrack Hits 88 MPH…

For my last entry on this page, I wanted to tie together my love for ’80s movies and the music that accompanies them.  Since I was about eleven years old, my favorite movie has been Robert Zemeckis’s ‘Back to the Future.’  From the characters to the soundtrack, the movie completely captivated me.  So, what betterContinue reading “Passion Blog #9: When This Soundtrack Hits 88 MPH…”

Passion Blog #7: The Beauty of Brian Justin Crum

For this blog post, I want to highlight one of the artists that helped shape my late high school/early college years.  His voice is incredible, and everything he stands for is admirable.  I’ve been fortunate enough to meet this man twice, and he is just as nice as you would expect.  This week, I’ll tellContinue reading “Passion Blog #7: The Beauty of Brian Justin Crum”

Passion Blog #6: Expect the Unexpected, Especially from Content Creators

Compared to every other artist and album I have reviewed so far, this next individual takes a SHARP turn in terms of music genre, style, and personality.  While he has no full-length albums out, he has quite a few songs that have taken the Internet by storm.  While his style is typically not something IContinue reading “Passion Blog #6: Expect the Unexpected, Especially from Content Creators”

Passion Blog #5: One Man’s Trash is Another Girl’s Treasure

For this post, I want to re-visit Coldplay, as another one of their albums is pivotal to my love for music.  Similar to the Justin Timberlake album from last week, this album contributed to several “core memories” for me during high school, and still manages to be one of my favorite albums to this day. Continue reading “Passion Blog #5: One Man’s Trash is Another Girl’s Treasure”

Passion Blog #4: High School Memories, Courtesy of ‘The 20/20 Experience’

Passion Blog #2: When We All Fall Asleep, She’s Where We Go

As a teenager, I spent my days cramming for calculus tests and trying to manage difficult customers at local waitressing jobs.  For Billie Eilish, her teenage years have been spent dropping chart-topping singles and eventually putting out one of the biggest albums of 2019: ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’.  Chris WillmanContinue reading “Passion Blog #2: When We All Fall Asleep, She’s Where We Go”
