Live-Streamed and Quarantined: Yaeji

Whether I’m writing a paper at the Sink on a Monday morning or Ubering downtown on a Friday night, somehow Yaeji’s music manages to be both energizing and relaxing at the same time, melding to whatever mood I find myself in.


Live-streamed and Quarantined: Marc Rebillet and Erykah Badu

While you can always count on Marc Rebillet to cook up something original, what made his drive-in livestream this summer particularly special was his collaboration with a surprise guest: Erykah Badu, the "Queen of Neo Soul."


Live-Streamed and Quarantined: James Blake

Doused in glassy synths and mournful chord progressions, James Blakes’ music is equally enchanting as it is haunting. Like standing on a frozen lake in late December, his cascading melodies never fail to raise goosebumps.


Livestreamed and Quarantined: ‘Girls with Guitars’

In the early months of quarantine, the two-time Grammy Award winning R&B artist H.E.R. began a livestream series, “Girls With Guitars,” a weekly conversation and performance with a fellow female guitarist on Instagram Live. On Episode 2, H.E.R. invited one of my biggest musical inspirations onto the show, Lianne La Havas.
