There’s no better time for the blues than while we’re still all prevented from gathering together to enjoy music together. We will do so again soon, but meantime, you just gotta keep singing the blues. Thus Jacob Green entreats the universe—as well he should—with “No Reason to Stop,” a plaintive, gently wailing song that, despite its pessimistic title, is actually rather upbeat. “No Reason to Stop” provides a toe-tapping tour through this most soulful of all music genres—and actually infuses blues with some soul to boot. The finger-picking Green complements with some truly heartfelt lyrics. It’s insanely simple, but then again, that’s what the blues is: three chords lamenting past hurt while looking toward the future. Give it a deserved listen below.
Stay tuned for more, as Green has another album brewing for March called “No End in Sight.” Meantime, you can kick back with “No Reason to Stop.”

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
