VERIDIA’s New Release Blood Diamond is Rough Around the Edges

VERIDIA’S NEW RELEASE BLOOD DIAMOND IS ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES Though this declared pandemic has paused or redirected some paths, independent bands like VERIDIA are still sending art into this world, at their own cost.  It’s in the form of meaningful lyric, enriched with a combination of cultural and rock sounds, in a time we probably […]

Broken World

“You’re so hyper-sensitive…” This is something I have heard my entire life. I’ve heard my family say it, I heard my “friends” say it, and I heard a therapist say it… I mean… confirm it.

Do You Remember? 9.11.01

At one point, The World Trade Center towers, measuring at 110 stories side by side, were the tallest buildings. Within the walls, you’d find 104 floors.

This isn’t my commute anymore…

This isn’t my commute anymore, but my next post prompted this: We were little humans, hidden on streets, overshadowed by tall buildings touching the sky. We swam through crowds crashing like waves, following stairs found in gaps in concrete, and dropped in and out of a whole world underground. We sprinted to trains, squeezed into […]

….So many of my NYC memories survive in my heart.

So many of these memories involved an accomplice. We didn’t know the day we emptied our savings account that we’d empty it again and again, or that we’d sign multiple leases, and move again and again. All we knew was that this city brought strangers together in small spaces without many words needed in exchange. […]
