Melodies To Ponder: Musical Mentions

If you listen closely, through the sway of the notes and hum of percussion, you can hear a piece of soul.

To hear its longing to be understood, and to then understand it, is nothing short of love.

Listen and love the music below!

Updown by Christopher Marciano

Smooth and soul filling, Christopher Marciano’s song Updown is one to add to your repertoire of music! I felt the longing, a twinge of hopeful chaos, but all of it based in a calm presence of mind. The beat hits in that perfectly satisfying spot, a note pattern that I didn’t know I needed. For his video he included a group of dancers, the Expandablez, who enhanced the artistry of this exceptional song. And to top it off, they did it all with the impressive and kind skill of maintaining the health safety of wearing masks! The music and dance combination is mesmerizing, full of passion and heart that is healing to this broken world right now.

Hell Froze Over by Coleman Row

This song really takes you by surprise. With a haunting beginning, the acoustic guitar slowly sets the groundwork, accompanied by an almost a grunge style melody, which builds into a fiddle duet. Impressive harmonies join to meet a chorus that you didn’t know you needed in your life. This unique mashup of folk and metal styles may seem strange, but it’s one that creates absolute magic.
