There are two things you can count on when you visit the Friday & River San Diego studio - our three workshop dogs napping in each of their beds, and a steady stream of music to set the mood.
We each have very different and wide-reaching tastes in music, so we thought we'd share a bit of what's in rotation on each of our daily playlists and a few thoughts on how music inspires our work.
We're calling these posts Friday & River Studio Playlists, and each one will be curated by F&R staff and friends.
For our first Friday & River Studio Playlist we decided to focus on the blues, compiled by yours truly. Being a fan of deep delta blues for over two decades, our recent trip to St. Louis inspired me to pull songs of some of my favorite blues musicians including the likes of Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, RL Burnside, Jimmy Hendrix, Son House and Johnny Farmer to name a few. Few other genre's of music have influenced my approach to making things with depth, texture, thoughtfulness and emotion than the blues.
We hope you enjoy,
