When we started to do this series, and I made my list of 52 artists I wanted to cover (1 a week for a year), Mariah was definitely on my list. My original thought was that I wanted to "Vision of Love", as that was one of the last pop songs that I was crazy for before I got into my rebellious/metal phase. I LOVED that tune! BUT, as the holidays approached I wanted to do something Christmas-y. I was surprised to read that not only is "All I Want for Christmas is You" just about the only 'new' Christmas…Read more
Simply put, this album (Indigo Girls, Rites of Passage) changed my life. In my early childhood I lived in a lot of place like Jakarta, Seoul, Brussels.... A lot of places where the music was a bit different. Not that music wasn't available, but different stuff was popular.

Hey Everyone- So I'm starting this a little late, but I'm gonna be putting up a little blog post each week to go along with our #WomanCrusWednesday series. Each week we're doing a new video of one or more of us covering a song written or made famous by a woman.

Since I'm starting late, I'm going to comment on episodes 1-5 in this first post, with a weekly post to follow. Please stop by and give the videos…Read more
