The only proof he needed for the existence of God was music. – Kurt Vonnegut

Jenn Woodard, Founder/Editor of CCP

Religion aside, Jenn can’t help but subscribe to the above Vonnegut quote. Always an integral part of her life, some might say music is her raison d’être. Jenn made the move to DC after an exhilarating but exhausting four years of living in NYC—and while she’s been called “too edgy” for the District, she finds that the live music scene makes it tenable. Some of her favorite things include synthpop, steel drums, and capturing musical moments on instagram.

Santiago Orrego

Born in Colombia, the now Baltimore-based bioengineer is an avid music enthusiast. Though English is not his first language (so pardon any technical issues), rest assured his aural palate is top notch! When he’s not seeking out new music, he’s most likely tinkering around with his own—check out his SoundCloud page at corbendalas.

Jon Keypour

Jon—grad student of GW and current resident of NY—originally hails from Ontario, Canada, hence his affinity for ketchup chips. He also plays guitar and violin in his spare time, and has a voracious appetite for new music. Fun fact: his dad was a real-life poet!

  10. Hi Kris, thank you so much for the nice comment! Glad you like the blog — yours is quite nice as well. It’s true that there’s a wonderful community of music seekers on the blogosphere.

  11. I’m not sure if I ought to post this here but since I can’t find any other way to, I’ll go ahead 🙂 Please feel free to let me know if it’s not ok.

    I thought you’d be interested in this one. “Stargaze” is by Don John Philip (DJP). He’s the producer and the guitarist on the record. He and Abraham Matthew sing on this. Ragged Skull aka Asif Akber is the rapper. He died recently but recorded this before he moved on. Rahul is on bass. I’m not in any way connected with this song. It came my way and I liked it.

  12. That’s interesting…you know I enjoy a good dance beat! How did you come across it? And I’m happy for you to share music across this platform, although it might be easier to reach out via twitter (@CokeCanPoetry) if you use that. This is fine though! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  13. Super! Thanks 🙂 I will keep an eye out for the twitter account and share anything interesting that comes my way there. This one came about as a feed on my FB timeline because the bassist, Rahul used to play with a now defunct band called Palmfret that I was fond of and followed. That band’s music was quite different from this so it was interesting and nice to hear Rahul venture into something apart from that.
