Mason Jennings hearts Toni Morrison; In related news, so do I

From a Q&A Session with acoustic singer-songwriter/rad dude Mason Jennings:

Q. Luke Agnini from Philadelphia, PA asks…
Mason, I’m very curious about where the lyrics to ‘Adrian’ stem from. Very powerful song. Cheers, Luke

A. Mason writes…
Hey Luke,That song just sort of happened after I read Beloved by Toni Morrison. The song isn’t about the book but I wanted to tap into the feeling that she gave me. She is awesome.

Yes, Mason. Darn straight she is. One of my favorites, a master.

Adrian – Mason Jennings

Recommended reading: Beloved

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
