Mood Monday.

I am humbled and thankful for the amazing opportunity to experience Savannah Stopover as a part of their press.

From the moment I left my house in Atlanta on Thursday, to the moment I returned, I honestly soaked in and relished every single second. I feel very lucky to have been given the chance to share the show and express it through my eyes. I came in with no expectations, but am returning home with a renewed hope and excitement for indie music, but especially for indie music in and traveling to the south I love.

I enjoyed the bands, the crew who worked so diligently to put on a very complicated festival, the other press in attendance, and of course the listening audiences (which made the scene so so fun). I can’t help but say this is one of the best music festivals out there for those that wish to really explore many different genres of music in intimate interesting settings.

I have to also add that having a chance to chat with a band member casually, bumping into a guitar player for a show the next day, or learning what music they listen to and inspires them, is just a killer experience. A band can instantly change from “rock star on a stage” to human and incredibly inspiring, intelligent, and thoughtful.

It is those experiences, of which I had many these past few days, that make me appreciate their music more. Personal connection, experience, and live shows make all the difference. Get out there and make a point to experience it all.

Opening Ceremony and Day!

The winning festival poster, I wish I could give credit where credit is due!  It is beautiful.

Congrats!

It was a wowing experience and made his show the next day a high priority. Amazing talent and fun addition.

Ran to see Alex Cameron and I was actually early! While waiting, I met this adorable couple (Annette and James) traveling from Canada. They had to see Alex because they were big fans. I wish I had their fun dancing moves on video when Alex came on…but then maybe you should listen to Alex Cameron and use your imagination. All I know is,they were beyond hip.

There was no way to capture the drummer in still time. He was in constant motion. For a two piece, they blasted amazing sound. I fell in love with this fun, crowd pleasing, energetic young band! You will hear more from them…
