Vertical Songs Of 2016

The distillation and clarification of emotion is a very personal, sometimes lonely, yet essential conjunct of health and sanity. We are influenced by strangers as much as by friends in these times of public privacy and vulnerable defensiveness.  

   It's such a pleasure to have one's anger, tenderness, fear or ecstacy mitigated by someone who brings a patina of art and caprice to our hidden feelings. The bright artificers below have helped me rave out of my sometimes silent stoicism into unforeseen astro-affectional dimensions with the quality of their voices, the kindness of their thoughts, and the textures of the sonic fabric that they have loomed to embrace their creations.
   Just finding a guide can make all the difference.
