  • Best of 2014

    This year I've been beyond excited to watch the hard work of my peers and friends paying off here in NYC as well as globally. The two labels who have been supportive enough to release my music (The Bunker New York and Styles Upon Styles) have both had an impressive year putting great music out into the world and I highly encourage you to support and buy their records! Ultimately, the music of 2014 that impressed me the most, and stayed in my rotation the longest came from people I'm lucky enough to call friends. This year I've made friends with some musicians whose work I've long admired, some old friends have come from nowhere with amazing records, and some impressive musical performances have led to new friendships. Apologies if I forgot anyone!

    Please note: these lists are in no particular order as to not fall victim to the silliness of numerically ranking individual's creativity!
