I’ll Take My Music “Progressive”

Dick Clark once said that “music is the soundtrack of our lives.” I couldn’t agree more. It grabs hold of our souls and pulls them onto its emotional playground.

But enough of that. We know how it makes us feel. It’s just hard to put it into words. As a result, I’ll refrain from sentimentally bloviating about my love of music. However, you will learn a bit about my favorite musicians by the many live performances I’ve been blessed to experience over the years.
