We met a lovely musician today on the show, Cole Allen. Originally from Minneapolis, Cole now lives in Rochester. He has been playing music since he was 13; his dad plays music as does his wife Sena Ehrhardt, plays music too. In fact, they often play together.
Cole comes from a bluesy rock background but his new work is a departure; it acoustic, personal and very honest. He found himself getting sober, living a better life and taking care of himself and the album is like a soundtrack to that transition. The music sounds great; the themes inspire us to want to be better. The music is ripe to help people make better changes in their life – not at all in a preaching way but in an Americana empowering way.
We also listened to a lot of songs about food and drink. You are see the playlist (in reserve order) below or check out our aspirational playlist on Spotify. It includes the songs we wanted to play but ran out of time.
We will be back in the studio next week and the theme is travel in honor of the many people who will be traveling for Thanksgiving.
