*on a personal note - my cup truly runneth over that you listen to the show each week - so #thankyou from the bottom of my #grateful #heart.
*also - sending a truckload of #gratitude to our friends at #MusiciansInstitute for powering #CloseToHome. visit them at www.MI.edu to find out how they can help make your life more musical in 2020!
*this week's bonus video is for my number one favorite song of the entire year called #QueenOfTheValley from the amazing dutch renaissance man called nick van hofwegen who makes beautiful music under the moniker of Young & Sick. the song is featured on my number one favorite album of the year (which in this case is actually an EP) called #SizeOfRelief. this collection of bangers fueled my year with sonic bliss, and it will live in my pantheon of musical greats that i will continue to revisit for the rest of my days!
