Sometimes music says it best

I just discovered Robert Randolph & the Family Band (Another party I'm a little late to, but that's what happens when your nose is always stuck in a book!) and am really digging them. This song put me in mind of a message about black authors, giving me an excuse to link here and tell more people about RRTFB. This song is totally kicking off my walking playlist this week! If you like R&B, blues & funk, check out Robert Randolph & the Family Band!

I first heard them on the Janelle Monae Pandora station. Speaking of, below is another song (which I first learned of on author Denene Millner's blog) that puts me in mind of black authors. Cause most days I sure do feel like I'm walking a tightrope!



Now if you like them, go buy these songs/albums. We artists and art-lovers need to stick together!

They play an amazing show live. I got to see them front row about 4 years ago, what a fantastic opportunity that was. So if you ever get the chance to see them in concert, grasp it.

Carleen,
I just discovered Janelle Monet too and I'm in love. I guess great, creative minds do think alike :)
