Life is an expected journey full of unexpected circumstances.  There is sadness and pleasure; confusion and enlightenment; ambivalence and clarity; aggressiveness and happiness.  Being able to navigate through life’s tides of change is made a little easier with good friends, love, good times, and acceptance – acceptance of each other and ourselves.  Having music along the way often lightens the load and gives more understanding to whatever is present, and it is great to have a collection of music that is…

I was introduced to Laughing with the Raindrops years ago, and their music never ceases to amaze me.  What I noticed about their latest work is that it is very cerebral, yet vulnerable and relatable.  Releasing 13th April 2022, Voice on Shellac is a descriptive collection of music that imprints on your brain the purpose of memories with no fluff just practicality in the same manner that early sensibility gets a message or moral across better than an educated lecture. 

There are nine tracks that make up…
