muses, music, madeleine peyroux


i am most grateful that i have a muse that is always available for me to connect with = music.
from a very young age i have found that i can block everything in my head out when i listen to my favorite music, then i can create without much thought, it just spills out of me. 
i love jazz music lots. in my twenties i loved to listen to billie holiday, patsy cline, and dress all in vintage pretending that i lived in that era. really i guess in that sense not a lot has changed for me. hum. sometimes i think maybe, i was born in the wrong decade. 

i connect with the 1940's. i have noticed that in most everything i design and create,  i somehow figure a layer of vintage into it. 

most often you can recognize an artist by their style.

i am curious what others would describe my style to be?  i honestly never thought about that question before. kind of a fun one really.

so i have been listening for about 12 hours to jazz music and lots of madeleine peyroux.
she has such a sense of peace for me. i just adore how she phrases her songs. 

tonight when i rest i will be counting the days (only 2) until i get to go see her in concert. i am simply thrilled about this concert. yep. hubby and i will get all vintage and fun and go hear this talented soul sing. of course, i will write all about it. maybe even have a picture? 

if you do not know of her music. listen. i know you will find her full of soul, peace and just simply good.

here is a bit of info on her. 

 Madeleine Peyroux (born 1974, Athens, Georgia, USA) is an American jazz singer, songwriter, and guitarist. Peyroux (French pronunciation: [madˈlɛn pɛjˈʁu]) is noted for her vocal style, which has been compared to that of Billie Holiday.
Peyroux has cited Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Patsy Cline, Édith Piaf, Leonard Cohen, Johnny Mercer, Charlie Chaplin, Serge Gainsbourg and Bob Dylan as influences on her music.
