Music Monday features Death & Taxes by @DanielCaesar

In 2014, Rolling Stone ranked Daniel Caesar’s debut album, Praise Break, as one of its Top 20 R&B albums.

The Toronto-based singer songwriter left home while still in high school after a fight with his parents over faith. “Death and Taxes” is a track from his latest album Pilgrim’s Paradise and features Caesar battling with God.

” … Only two things in this life that are sure, of that I’m sure
Death and taxes
Death and taxes”

Caesar is only 22.

You’ll love his voice and the bluesy guitar. I look forward to featuring more of his music in future posts.

Have a great week,

Music Monday moves with Simon and Garfunkel

I’ve visited NYC for years, mainly to see family. After my grandma passed away in December, the city became a sadder place for me.

It was inevitable, but even though I had prepared for it, I could not know how I would feel until I returned to NYC for the first time since my grandma’s funeral.

It was a different kind of trip but a special one in many ways.

I flew in with my husband, and as usual, we visited old haunts, listened to live music, and met with friends and family. And as usual, there was not enough time to see everyone we had hoped to see.

What was different, however, was our return home. We hitched a ride back with my uncle and aunts. They were coming to spend time with the Canadian side of the family, namely my mom and my other aunt and cousins.

As the moon sat high in the sky, we packed up the car and set off at 4 AM for the nine-hour trip to Toronto. With little to no traffic, we took pleasure in the foggy terrain as we drove out of NYC and watched the sun rise. During the drive, we played the music of three artists: Simon and Garfunkel; Jim Croce; and The Doors.

“The Only Living Boy in New York” is one of the songs that will now forever remind me of that road trip.

Enjoy and I hope you have a great week.
