Since September my house has been very quiet. Before Noah left to study at the Berklee College of Music my house was filled with music. Either he was playing something, or working on something with friends or showing me something.
When Noah began to get serious about music we understood that meant he needed quality instruments. A battered Guild guitar that Mark had bought decades before was replaced by a beautiful Martin, the cheap electronic keyboard was replaced with a proper upright piano and a much better quality electronic keyboard. Buying that keyboard years ago is how I met the musician Tess Amodeo-Vickery.
I have followed along with Tess via twitter and Facebook as her musical career grew, keeping up with her recording work and her playing gigs in clubs all over Rome.
Rome can be a very small town sometimes. Through a friend of Noah's, Tess and I have connected again. She has a stunning new single out that I have been listening to non stop.
Listen to it on Spotify and download it from iTunes. Take my word for it.
