With rhythm guitar reminiscent of Nile Rodgers and the Daft Punk “Get Lucky” sensation fused with deep bass and in the pocket drums, “Grace” is a song that is musically dynamic, lighthearted, and endearing. Cody’s falsetto vocals provide an additional lifting effect that really drives home the affection and admiration for the subject of the song.

“‘Grace’ is a story about my actual friend Grace. The closest I have ever been to being in love. It’s the story about fantasizing about someone else. I wrote this song after having broken up with my ex-girlfriend and meeting grace for the first time. One of the three songs on this album that I produced myself. Very simple three track production. Guitar, bass, drums. The lyrics allude to a sense of excitement, feeling crazy for feeling for someone so deeply.”

“Grace” is reported to be the final visual enhancement of Cody Lawless’ new album, Sunshine State of a Happy Camper, available now on major streaming platforms like YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
