Music Focus: Alice Merton

1.11.19 I’ve been cooking some new things to add to the blog site and this is one of them. Music Focus. Every second Friday, Shadowboxerinc is putting the spotlight on past, present, and future music’s artists and/or groups. January’s music focus is on Alice Merton. Growing up around the world, singer/songwriter Alice Merton was as influenced by other cultures as by transience itself. Born in Frankfurt and raised in Canada and England, Merton‘s absorption of different styles and sounds helped craft the worldly progressive pop leanings on her debut, which came out in 2017. As a child, she learned classical piano and singing while in Canada. When Merton was a teenager, her family moved to Germany, where she would pick up the guitar and write her first song. While in Germany, she also studied at the Mannheim conservatory of music. Later, the family would relocate again, this time to England. These frequent international shifts would play a key role in the songwriting process for her first output, 2017’s No Roots EP (Mom + Pop Records). The four-track effort included the fiery “Lash …

Best of 2018: Art

12.29.18 Reached the end of Best of 2018 and that is Art. I haven’t seen a lot of it this year, but in 2019 I will make up for it! Here is a small list of art museums who in my artistic opinion that had exhibitions that showed some really great art. Plus, there is an article from Vulture by Jerry Saltz.  Metropolitan Museum of Art NYC Delacroix French painter Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863) was one of the greatest creative figures of the nineteenth century. Coming of age after the fall of Napoleon, he reconnected the present to the past on his own terms. Delacroix produced an extraordinarily vibrant body of work, setting into motion a cascade of innovations that changed the course of art. This exhibition is the first comprehensive retrospective devoted to this amazing artist ever held in North America. –The Met exhibition overreview The Met Fifth Avenue /  1000 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10028 Phone: 212-535-7710 http://www.metmuseum.org The exhibition will be held  at The Met from SEPTEMBER 17, 2018–JANUARY 6, 2019   …
