My Music: The Quiet One

A month or so ago, I shared a demo of one of my original songs here on the blog. I have 2 other demos posted on SoundCloud (more are coming very soon), and I wanted to take the chance to talk about another one of those songs, “The Quiet One.” Like the first song I shared,…

My Music: “Can’t Let Go of This”

This past weekend, Harmony Avenue turned 5 years old! It’s crazy to think that the blog has been around that long, and I’m happy to have been able to stick with this in some form for all these years (excepting, of course, the 2 that I served a mission in Peru). As always, thank you so…

Song of the Day: “The Draw”

Now that I’m (finally, hopefully) back to posting regularly again, and I just made my 100th post, it’s time to return to a regular Harmony Avenue feature…the Song of the Day. Like I explained before, I won’t necessarily be featuring a Song of the Day each day (though that would be the ideal…I’ll see if…

Song of the Day: “The Daily Mail”

It’s the first post of 2012! And after a barrage of list-based posts at the end of last year, I’m returning to one of this blog’s classic features…the Song of the Day. (As usual, it’s posted at night. I really need to get to doing these in the morning…then they’ll actually be a true Song…

Cover Stories: Christmas Edition!

Remember when I said I was going to go all out for the Christmas season this year on Harmony Avenue? In fairness, I’ve done much more than I did last year. Still, it hasn’t been quite all I’ve hoped…but that’ s OK. Since it’s only two days before the big day (and I still haven’t…

Song of the Day: “Robots”

Alas, aside from the last lingering remnants of my “Sing-Off” recaps, I haven’t posted much else lately. Here’s a Song of the Day to whet your whistle (and for those of you who feel a bit oversaturated with holiday tunes, it’s a normal one this time around), and coming hopefully today or tomorrow, I’ll be…

Song of the Day: “Estupida”

Here comes a Song of the Day…and this time around, it’s in Spanish! Take a look at this great salsa jam (yes, I just used the word “jam”)… “Estupida” by India! As is the case with a lot of songs I have, I found out about this one by a curious iTunes search. However, iTunes…

Reprise: More Music From Lucy, Jamie, and Sondre!

Hey, a post that’s not about “The Sing-Off”! Those are becoming increasingly rare on this blog. My apologies to the non-“Sing-Off”-initiated. Anyways, here’s a new feature I’ve kind of spontaneously decided to introduce, called “Reprise.” I’m not sure if it will be recurring too often or not, but basically it’s an opportunity for me to…

Song of the Day: “Don’t Stop”

Here’s a quick Song of the Day…but first, the moment all of you (or most likely, 6 of you) have been waiting for…the winner of the $15 iTunes gift card giveaway! The numbers have been crunched, and here’s a photo of the result: That means shantay, you’re our winner! Come on down, you’re a contestant…

Two Songs of the Day: “Keep Your Head Up” and “Landfill”

Since, as usual, I haven’t posted in a while, here’s not one Song of the Day…but two! They’re very nicely contrasting in style, and they’ve been on my mind (and in my ears) for a while. The first song? How about a little… “Keep Your Head Up” by Andy Grammer! A good friend, who’s now…

Artist Spotlight: Alyse Black

Hey, I’m back with a new Artist Spotlight. Alas, as always, it has been too long. This post is a milestone for Harmony Avenue…it’s this blog’s 50th post. More celebration of that to come…but first, let’s jump right into talking about an artist I’ve been wanting to spotlight for quite a while now, the amazing……
