over the last months i’ve been working with my friend Jon (who encouraged me to do First Times the Charm with him last year) on his solo project, Attendant. his songs were recorded with a ton of really talented folks in the Philly music community (all of the members of Radiator Hospital & the Ambulars, plus Swearin, Pinkwash, Dead Dog, and more - you can see the full list on the page).
it’s up on bandcamp now and I’m really excited to share it!! i’m posting my favorite song from the album, Saturday, but click through and listen to the whole thing too - it’s pay what you can to download. i’m slightly copying Sammy by saying FFO: Husker Du/Bob Mould bands, Replacements, Dinosaur Jr, Gin Blossoms, etc.

Back in May, the #weneeddiversebooks campaign lit a fire to fulfill the desperate need for diverse books in children’s literature. Behind the Book has always championed efforts to find diverse authors and protagonists that will appeal to students since we serve communities of color.
