SxSW 2015: Until The Ribbon Breaks 

The first show of my SxSw 2015 adventures began with the band Until The Ribbon Breaks. It was a band my co-SxSWconspirator highly recommended and I’m so happy she did. Their music reminds me of Maroon 5, the Songs About Jane era with a mix of 1988 Bobby Brown and Teddy Riley with an updated sound – its a great mix.

Whether you want to or not you will be dancing and wishing the party would not stop. Looking around I knew it was not the free vodka that had the crowd going it was electrifying performance from UTRB.

Check out video of Until The Ribbon Breaks performing their song ‘Perspective’ at the Holy Mountain showcase.

R.I.P. Whitney Houston……

I usually talk about Indie Music but right now I want to say something about Whitney Houston…..

Like Michael Jackson, Whitney’s music was a fixture in my house growing up. I can’t sing to save my life but I LOVED her voice. My sister and I would use the video camera to make videos and of course Whitney was on the play list. I can still recall my aunt blasting ‘Saving all my love’, and we all sing along as we drove down Crenshaw Blvd. Even when I stopped listening to RnB/Pop music, I kept up with Whitney’s music. Most of the stuff after the Bodyguard wasn’t my favorite but there were a few songs I enjoyed here and there.

So Emotional is my absolute FAVORITE song by Whitney Houston. I can’t explain it because its usually over looked but I can listen to it over and over.

Despite her sad drug addiction Whitney was talent like no one else……alot of people try to reach that level but lets face it she was one of a kind. Model, singer, and actress….wow…..
