In The Headlines

After a relaxing break from work and responsibility, I am...okay, still not ready to go back to the daily grind. However, I did take some time to reach out to more artists and got some tremendous feedback. I'm excited about this week's posts as well as the profile on tap for Friday. While the wire's been quiet lately, we've got a bumper crop of headlines to get you through the day.
