Memphis Makes Its Own Music

memphisguitar-webMemphis has its own rhythm. It’s not limited to Beale Street.You can’t help but notice the motion of the river, the cadence of the traffic, the blends of voices and accents and the feeling that something special is happening right around the corner.Every part of the city is directly connected to its musical heritage – whether it be Stax, Graceland, Sun Studios, or Al Green’s church.Rock, soul, R and B, rap, ragtime, it’s all here. Every performer comes here when they feel the need to connect with their musical roots and cut an album.When I saw this guitar case in a shop, I felt like it served as a reminder and needed a larger audience.Sometimes it’s easy to ignore what’s right in front of you and the music is one of our city’s greatest treasures.


WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue Blue Elvis

On a winter day outside Sun Studio where Elvis and many others recorded,I found  these words drawn into the frost. I added the blue to make it colder and to honor Memphis music.
