Sabbithry Persad, MBA has followed up her Garbology Kids waste management series with the release of What Is Coronavirus?: How It Infects, How It Spreads, and How to Stay Safe. To say such an addition is timely would be a massive understatement. The thing I loved when reading the book…


Ora Nadrich knows of what she speaks. Nadrich is described as a pioneering Mindfulness expert, and works as an international keynote speaker and coach, having founded the Institute for Transformational Thinking. In a topical field where the name Carlos Castaneda has become somewhat dismissive when coming from the mouths of…


It isn’t a cliché to say there’s no one like Parker Longbough. You can glean influences in his music from a single listen. He takes his influences, however, and transmutes them through his skill set, experiences, and personality into something singularly his own. The eight track collection Off Front Street


Bill McBirnie and Bruce Jones aren’t making music for the money. Jazz-influenced originals owning considerable debts to Latin/South American traditions isn’t going to make either man rich. The music on their release Forever is music made by musicians interested in Art, invoking a sensory experience for listeners and producing a…


Using a mixture of lusty linguistics and a vocal delivery that has to rank among some of the smoothest I’ve heard from an indie player in a long time, Calvyn Cass makes it known to his listeners that singing is something more than just a passion to him in his…

Joey Dussault, Aaron Swartz, and Matt Dwyer first met while attending college in Boston, Massachusetts and began jamming soon thereafter. It’s always in the back of a musician’s mind when jamming with new acquaintances that the…


Swaying as hard as an old willow battered by hurricane-force winds, it doesn’t take much more than a cursory listening session with the track “Fishy” to get excited about the tonal pleasures and indulgently melodic elements Neal Fox is working with in his latest album, Unhinged, this fall. However, I…


There’s something fun and upbeat about the tempo and pacing of Erika Andersen’s new book — titled Change From The Inside Out: Making You, Your Team, and Your Organization Change-Capable. She writes with an enthusiasm for the material that proves infectious, and never feels preachy or overtly paternalistic. …


“Grey Sky Blue” is the new single from genre-defying artist/songwriter Kristen Ford. This guitar-driven track strikes a few different chords, and launches the listener into a tune about what I can only surmise is about social anxieties and trying to fit in. Or maybe it’s about getting swept away by…
