The Best Songs of October 2023 // New Music Friday!

"Is It Over Now? (Taylor's Version) (From The Vault)" // Taylor Swift Words can't describe how much I love 1989 and I've been anticipating the release of Taylor's Version ever since she announced the re-recording of her first five albums. Now that it's finally here, it is better than I could've ever imagined! I can't wait to share my full  1989 (Taylor's Version)   review soon because it is absolutely incredible in every way! I have been loving all of the tracks newly-released From the Vault , especially the final song, "Is It Over Now?" It details the ups and downs she experienced at this time in her life as she wonders if her relationship is really done. It is so catchy, brutally honest and fits so well with the rest of the album. It draws many parallels to songs like "Style" and "Out Of The Woods". Plus, she's so real for threatening to jump off a building over a certain British boybander - iykyk.  "

Meeting John Stamos at Books & Greetings in New Jersey! // "If You Would Have Told Me" Book Signing

Have mercy! My dad and I had the best experience meeting John Stamos in Northvale, New Jersey! He had book signing at Books & Greetings to celebrate the release of his new memoir, If You Would Have Told Me * . I am such a big fan of his and it was such a dream getting to meet him! My favorite show for basically my entire life has been Full House , I could easily quote every single episode of it if I had to! Uncle Jesse has always been my favorite character and I never thought I would get to meet him!  Books & Greetings is a great independent bookstore located in Northvale, NJ. This was our first time there, but it was such a great experience and I look forward to visiting again one day! It was a two hour drive to get there and it was so worth it. They host so many author meet & greets at their store, so I highly recommend checking them out!  Sometimes the books are signed in person depending on the number of tickets sold, but since there was over 1400 people there, the book

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Concert Film // Review

You know the greatest films of all time were never made....until now!! My mom and I went to see Taylor Swift : The Eras Tour concert film in IMAX during the opening weekend, which was such a wonderful experience. The theater was packed with other excited Swifties all dressed up in their Eras gear singing along to every song, it had such a great energy to it as if it was the real concert.  Everything about this film was perfection, but I wouldn't expect any less from Taylor! The cinematography was so stunning and immersive, as if you are on the stage with her. The visual effects also blew me away, from the added 3D transitions between the eras, to the stunning imagery shown on the stage. The entire stage is essentially a screen that is interacting with her choreography, which adds a really cool element to the performance, especially on songs like "Delicate", "Look What You Made Me Do" and "Blank Space", to name a few.  Even if you were lucky enough to

Mitch Rowland Live at Main Street Music in Philadelphia & Come June Album Signing!

I recently had the most incredible experience meeting Mitch Rowland and seeing him perform live at Main Street Music in Philadelphia ! In celebration of the release of his debut album Come June , he's done a few acoustic performances and album signings across the country and in the UK, so I was very excited to hear he was performing at a record store near me. Main Street Music is located in the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia, which is about an hour away from where I live. I have never been to Main Street Music before, but my dad and I had such a great experience and I look forward to going back again to shop and attend future events!  Mitch is best known for his work with Harry Styles , who he has collaborated with as a co-writer and guitarist since 2016 and worked on all three of Harry's solo albums . He has also been the lead guitarist on all of his tours since then, as well. I was so happy to hear that Mitch was embarking on a solo career earlier this year and have b

Silence Between Songs by Madison Beer // Album Review

Silence Between Songs * is the stunning sophomore album by Madison Beer that incorporates pop and jazz music with a wistful orchestration. It sounds so grand and cinematic, much like Lana Del Rey 's signature style, which is an artist that she cited as an inspiration many times. Madison has such a beautifully lush voice, which is on full display throughout this record. I first heard of Madison sometime around 2013 through Justin Bieber posting a link to one of her covers on YouTube. Soon after, she signed a contract with his manager, Scooter Braun, and Justin personally signed her to his label, Island Records. She was only about 12 years old at the time, which is quite a unique origin story to have! Her music career has been through some ebbs and flows over the past decade or so, but in the past couple of years she has released some really great music and her evolution since that time is so apparent. Aside from releasing a few singles and EPs through the years, it wasn't unti
