**May’s Music Buffet**

you know how buffets kind of have a bad wrap?

well, I’ve got a treat for you.

a music buffet. but only the best. and only the newest tunes that have been filling my ear holes.

i’m so excited to tell you, because when i get really excited about something….i juuuuuuuuust gotta tell somebody.

so anyway. i know you’re probably thinkin like, “andria, you’re a photographer…you cant like music. you can’t tell us what to like. you think you’re mussolini?” well you know what, as long as my name’s at the top of this blog, you’ll listen to me. and only me. but really. you know you like it. music has been a seed that has been growing and growing in my life and heart. i just love you seattle and all the good music you have. it’s a wonderful beautiful thing. and community.¬†and i’m happy that i skip down the road and see a show, hang out and be around people that love what they do just as much as i do. it’s mesmerizing to be around it. i feel right at home.

and i need to share. —-> and make sure you read the descriptions….cuz my words are like gold. duh.

and if you want all this for yourself…..LEAVE A COMMENT and I’ll send you the playlist to have for your own ear holes.

MOTOPONY: you know how you meet someone and you dont know what they do, so you dont have the chance to be admire their art there in the flesh? but then you have a lovely afternoon to chat and walk through a forest and then you hear their album and find out it’s really frickin good. and their songwriting is really so saturated with talent and unlike anything else. and you edit to the album several times over in the day? ya, well that’s Motopony.
