It took me a good hour to pick one of Tori's songs to share. I love every single one. Her first album is my favorite. I have been listening to it since my senior year of high school. I have the cassette tape that my friend DP gave me years ago, somewhere. I have been meaning to buy the CD for ages, and just never have. I might have to now, after listening to all the songs on YouTube this morning.
Music is one of my biggest inspirations, and I always have something playing in my studio while I'm making things. I love the heavy piano playing in Tori's music. My friend, DP, plays piano and is probably the most amazing piano player I know. I wish you could hear some of his work. I think that is why I love this CD so much, because it reminds me of him, and our friendship. We were inseparable from 10-12th grade. He was a few years younger than I was.
Nowadays he is living in DC and is a Music Director there at the school where he works. I wish I could hear him play again.
Tori will have to do, for now.
What are you listening to in your studio?
