Seattle-based, 25-year-old Alda Agustiano goes by the ambiguous title Chong the Nomad. When asked about her moniker, Chong shares, "Yeah, it’s a pretty nerdy story. I grew up loving the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the music from that series actually inspired me to write music. There was a very minor character, who was this sort of musician, and his name was Chong. He was nomadic; a hippy. I used Chong the Nomad as a form name for a while, and then I just rolled with it. I kinda like how gender-neutral it is." https://bit.ly/31dHLjZ

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
by The Beatles
(30 plays) | (0 fans)

Although the title was widely perceived to be a coded reference to LSD, "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" in fact took its name from a drawing of a schoolfriend by the four-year-old Julian Lennon. John Lennon revealed, "I had no idea it spelt LSD. This is the truth: my son came home with a drawing and showed me this strange-looking woman flying around. I said, 'What is it?' and he said, 'It’s Lucy in the sky with diamonds,' and I thought, 'That’s beautiful.' I immediately wrote a song about it." https://bit.ly/3oqUI3f

John Lennon was sadly killed 41 years ago at the age of 40. "Watching the Wheels" is a single by John Lennon released posthumously in 1981. In "Watching the Wheels" Lennon addresses those who were confounded by his "househusband" years, 1975–1980, during which he retired from the music industry to concentrate on raising his son Sean with Ono. The song features a hammered dulcimer accompanying the lead piano. https://bit.ly/3og0zXn http://www.jpgr.co.uk/k99131.html

'Arboretum' features TONS of artists including Death Valley Girls, Shaina Shepherd, Naked Giants, Smokey Brights, and more! Acid Tongue's Guy Keltner was going through a rough time during the writing of the album sharing, “I became incredibly depressed and started spending a lot of time at the Arboretum in Seattle. I had just moved home and was spending all day absorbing this diversity of plants and sounds at the park. I poured myself into writing some deeply personal songs, heavily influenced by the artists in my immediate orbit.” https://bit.ly/31IdOsH
