new music 2017

Nourish beginnings, let us nourish beginnings.
Not all things are blest, but the
seeds of all things are blest.
The blessing is in the seed.
Elegy in Joy [excerpt] by Muriel Rukeyser

2016 will go down in the history books and our memories as a tumultuous year. Things seemed to start going awry early on and the span felt tainted at times. But we all know that a lot of good came from the year, it was never a sentence to fail. New years feel like reset buttons, a time to set aflame beautiful intents so that they may guide the future in a positive direction. A new year doesn’t have to be about fixing what is wrong, necessarily, it can be about planting the seeds of what will go right going forward.

So here’s to all of the extraordinary potential and bountiful crops our seeds will produce this year…2017, here’s looking at you, kid.

These artists all planted new creative endeavors with these tracks in 2016 and already in 2017, so let’s watch them grow:
