I’m gathering quite the page of kick ass vendors/inspiration sites*. These are people in the industry that not only would you draw inspiration from for your special day, but you can just as easily sit down with and have a beer (or coffee). And since Hi-Fi is all about the tunes in our lives, we’re gonna get to know what these peeps dig on musically.
So last Sunday I opened the vault and surprised you with a Guest Mix…and this week it’s another classic post – Meet the Vendor! I had the remarkable pleasure of meeting (in real life your guys!) the lovely talent, Elizabeth, of Bow and Arrow Designs earlier this year at the Hi-Fi Fest. Her collections are so amazing! If you’re looking for that special summ summ to add some pizazz to your day, look no further – check out the full shop and prepare to oogle over Bow and Arrow!
Can you describe your life (so far) in 3-5 songs?
“Be My Baby” – The Ronettes
It reminds me of my childhood. It seems that we listened to a lot of 60’s pop songs.
“I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” – Hank Williams, Sr
It reminds me of growing up in Tennessee…although I didn’t appreciate this music when I was young, I do now.
“Friday I’m In Love” – Cure
It reminds me of living in Savannah, GA with my sister and going to art school.
“World is Full of Crashing Bores” – Morrissey
It reminds me of my 20’s and how painful they were!! So happy to be in my 30’s. 😉
“There is a Light that Never Goes Out” – The Smiths
It perfectly sums up how much I am in love with my husband.
“Sunday Morning Coming Down” – Johnny Cash
I just added this one because it is my favorite to hear my husband sing. He likes to play me a few songs before we go to sleep.
What is your favorite love song?
“That’s How Strong My Love Is” by Otis Redding
My husband played it for me on our first date and it was our first dance at our wedding. It is just so passionate and emotional. I want to go back in time to a hot, sweaty blues club in the south and dance to it with my husband.
If you could go see anyone perform live who would it be?
This one is easy – Roy Orbison. His voice makes me want to cry.
What is your preferred format of music?
Definitely MP3. I live in Brooklyn, NY…I don’t have room for anything else!!
Are you a musician? If so, what do you play? If not, what would you play?
No, sadly I am not. My musical background consists of the typical childhood piano lessons that you totally forget about after a year or two. The only instrument we had in my house growing up was an old out-of tune piano. My dad would play “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on it and it would drive us crazy. Oh! My mom did own an old accordion from her childhood – I definitely should have spent more time playing with that. I remember that it was teal, red and off-white. If I were to learn an instrument, it would be a pedal steel guitar. The sound just reminds me of growing up in Tennessee. I imagine my grandparents from Sewanee, TN sitting around a radio listening to the Grand Ole Opry. I would love my evenings to consist of me and my husband playing old-school country music. I guess my talent comes from the same place – my grandmother taught me to sew and that is what I occupy my time with.
