You all know by now how I feel about and connect to music.
I talked about the Chainsmokers about a year and a half ago and it’s no secret that I dedicated an entire day of my life to my night with Stevie Nicks. It’s something that I feel deep in my soul and when I love an artist I SERIOUSLY LOVE AN ARTIST.
Well I have a couple new music favorites to share with you.
GRETA VAN FLEET
I don’t know if you know this about me by new, but I LOVE classic rock.
People are always so shocked by this (which I find hilarious being that I dress and act like I belong in the 70s/80s). But it is true.
I’d choose to listen to Guns N’ Roses, Fleetwood Mac, The Allman Brothers, or Styx any day over “Today’s Top Hits”. New music these days just doesn’t do it for me.
The only thing is that there isn’t really anything new when it comes to Classic Rock.
Don’t get me wrong, I will listen to Back to Black or Midnight Rider on repeat for 6 hours and still love them just the same. But that doesn’t mean I don’t wish more than anything to hear a new song by Lynyrd Skynyrd make it’s debut on the radio…
ENTER GRETA VAN FLEET
During a very unfortunate haircut about a month ago my “hair dresser” (quotations in place for is lack of professionalism), who was also shocked by my music taste, handed me his phone with the promise of blowing my musical mind.
Within the first 25 seconds of hearing this kid’s voice I was in love. Within the next 15 seconds I was in love with the lyrics. And after hearing their song Flower Power I was hooked. I can’t even count the amount of people I’ve told about them in the last month. They’re on repeat in my car, I play their music at work, I showed them to my (new and WAY BETTER) hair dresser, etc. etc.
“She is a lady, comes from all around. Many places but she’s homeward bound. And now she walks kinda funny, I think she knows, day by day by day our love grows. She’s a lantern in the night, she’s outta sight.”
Potential tattoo in their somewhere? Maybe. I’m in love like it’s wrong.
They give off the essence of a new Led Zeppelin. And I cannot wait to see what they become.
I don’t spend money on concert tickets. It’s just not my thing (not included Stevie Nicks, she’s always my thing). But I have to say I wouldn’t mind throwing down serious cash to see these boys.
As I mentioned above I was showing my new hair dresser Greta Van Fleet the other day while she was doing her thing. We turned on Greta Van Fleet radio on Spotify and let it rip. Well all of a sudden I noticed this meaty badass female lead singing out of the speakers with an intensity that made me want to yell out “HELL YEAH GIRL, SING IT!”
The song was Raise Hell by Dorothy.
Ok. Well who is Dorothy? I NEEDED TO KNOW.
Down a rabbit hole and a half hour of music later I found my second newest music obsession.
I get a very Heart vibe from this chick and I love it. (Let’s be real, who doesn’t get down to a little Barracuda?)
I really like what she sings about too. It’s really empowering without sounding super… in your face.
“Don’t call me your woman, oh, until you act like a man.”
That lyric is STRAIGHT TRUTH.
Ok. That’s all I have for you right now. I hope you fall in love with their voices just as I have.
