Concerts From The Closet: Amy Speace’s “Yes” to Motherhood + Music Making

When critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Amy Speace , live streamed a Concert Window album preview from her walk-in closet to the fans who had just helped fund its release, it wasn’t because she couldn’t book another venue. It was because she is both a new mom, and a musician, and with a one year old asleep down the hallway, it was a way to say yes to both. So far as I’ve observed it, the intersection of parenthood and any career is a tricky one to navigate. Reliable road s...

K. Michelle Crashes Country Concert, Says She Sings “Better Than Any White Motherf**king Country Singer” & She’s “The Next Motherf**king Taylor Swift”

In a world where Lil Nas X has subverted norms about genres and teamed up with Billy Ray Cyrus to top the Billboard Hot 100, it’s understandable that other black musicians would see the country music genre as ripe fruit, fresh for the picking.And that kind of genre experimentation is fantastic.

Writing about jazz in the post-modern gig era

How should music reference works deal with jazz in the era of multi-genre freelancing? Back in November 1983, when I asked Stanley Sadie, series editor for Grove Dictionaries of Music, if he’d ever thought of having a New Grove Dictionary of Jazz, jazz seemed to be a reasonably coherent genre with a connected succession of styles. Maybe I was just being young, naive, ignorant. Or maybe the notion of jazz as something coherent hadn’t yet started to completely unravel, even though all sorts of cha...
