In a way, rebirth is exactly what my third mix is about. Taking cues from various feelings springtime evokes, I wanted to compile a set of songs that moved in concert with the season. By themselves, each song has a faint musical seed that germinates and blooms into a much more pronounced, powerful direction. However, taken as part of a whole, despite the differing genres, styles, and regions, all these songs share something elemental that binds them in spirit. In the end, this mix is just one small way I can show you where some of my musical roots are, where they’ve taken me, and (in a way) how connected they still remain, even as I try to spring forward elsewhere. As muted colors of winter give way to the pastels of spring, so must we try to commune in a different kind of spirit.
