With this month’s Weedsday playlist, we asked Curley to make us a playlist with her tunes to toke up to.
Neil Young - “Old Man”
Neil Young is one of my favorite musicians. My parents always played Neil on blast in our house growing up and I caught on for the love quickly. When it's time for me to sit back, relax, think, and imagine, he's usually a go to. It's easy to close my eyes and remember rides back from the lake, in such peace... dreaming about all that I would accomplish as I grew. “Old Man” has been my favorite song since I can remember.
Kacey Musgraves - “Butterflies”
I really love Kacey's music. I began listening to her before she became well known and still think of her intimately like that. I love her advocacy for the plant and the bit of rebel in her against traditional country. My mom loves country, so I always feel connected to her in someway when rocking out to that genre. I resonate with so many of her words and beats, "you're rolling one for two and I'm still picking out my shoes, I'm never late to the party if I'm late to the party with you." Pageant Material was my main playlist while I was making one of the biggest and boldest career moves of my life in 2015.
The Carters - “Friends”
Beyoncé is one of my favorite artists. I grew up listening to her and her music inspired me so much. There was a point in my life where I was in a young, drawn out and unhealthy relationship. I played her music daily to amp me up, give me courage and strength. I can't exactly put my finger on it, but her music helped me envision all that I could and wanted to be. To this day her music and journey still inspires me. It's hard to pick one song of hers as I love so many of them and have evolved through listening to them. “Friends” has been on my recent playlist. I've gone through a lot of changes within the past couple years, letting go of some long time friends that weren't bringing good vibes into my life and creating new amazing bonds. This song hits the heart and new phase of my life.
Solas - “The Big Reel of Ballynacally / The High Reel / Flash Away the Pressing Gang”
I grew up on Irish Music. I come from a large Irish Catholic family and I was a competitive Irish dancer until age 15. I have a few favorite Irish bands and Solas has always been on the top of that list. I could jam out to Irish any day, any time. My heart spirit jumps out of my body when the beat hits in Irish Music. It literally fuels my soul and inspires me greatly. It also reminds me of my family and makes me feel connected to them in that moment. Usually, I'm rocking out to Irish alone or with family, as most of my friends will kindly listen to a couple songs and then are like "girl, nice, can we change this?" lol. I can't wait to head back to Ireland and rock out in a bar with live music and dance!
Bryce Vine - “La La Land”
This is a new song on my playlist. I love emotional beats in hip-hop songs. It's usually a piano that gets me. I adore California and I'm attempting to make a lot more time out there. The words and the beat in this song hit and resonate with me. In my own way and world, I can relate to this song and California dreamin'.
