I see this world living in black and white, I'm thinking about trying to make people feel again with music. There's so many forgotten and secret things in the world that I want people to know about, and if I can be a vessel for those things, just for one little moment of somebody's life, then I'm going to do that through my performance, through my visual as well, because it's all communication that shouldn't be wasted. P. Wolf
Today I'm sharing 2 videos from another of my favorite artists, Patrick Wolf. I love that this English singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist (including ukulele, piano and viola) is so unabashedly unique. Each one of his 4 albums so far has been unlike anything else I've ever heard...very distinctly him yet also distinct from each other. If you put stock in celebrity endorsements, Lady Gaga is quoted as having said, "I'm really into an artist right now named Patrick Wolf. I think you would really love him — really fantastic, amazing.”
Both these singles featured today are from Mr. Wolf's upcoming album, Lupercalia (set for release this summer). While I'm truly smitten with both songs, I also wanted to share them together because I enjoy the juxtaposition of having a song each featuring the joy and pain of love, respectively. I'm sure most of us can relate to both sides and I'm glad he's showing them. As usual, I hope you'll love this artist as much as I do, unconventional though he may be.
I also wanted to thank everyone who participated in my poll asking what type of posts you'd like more of on 6 Bittersweets. The majority of you told me you want to see more healthy recipes shared here, but savory recipes and food photography tips weren't far behind. Your input definitely means a lot to me, and I hope to incorporate more of all 3 types of content into my posts in the coming months.
