Girls Who Rock: Deap Vally
Do like girls who rock? If so, we would like you to meet Deap Vally. Deap Vally is a rock n' roll band consisting of Lindsey Troy (vocals & guitar) and Julie Edwards (drums). The girls originally met in a needlepoint class in Los Angeles, bonded over their love for the blues, and started the sassy band that is Deap Vally. With a sound parallel to The Black Keys and Jack White, Deap Vally has made a presence in the rock n' roll world with the release of their first single "Gonna Make My Own Money" shortly followed by their debut album Get Deap. Their music careers as Deap Vally started in 2011, but since then Deap Vally has traveled internationally to play shows and can be seen playing at many popular festivals this summer. What can we say, we love girls who rock. Check out what these ladies of rock n' roll are all about.
Yoga To The People
Yoga To The People: Yoga For Everyone Yoga To The People is a donation based yoga organization that seeks to make the practice of yoga available to anyone and everyone. Nowadays, yoga classes can be quite expensive, but Yoga To The People's donation based studios encourage people to get out and practice yoga as often as they can at a price that is right for them. On days that you can donate more, donate more; on days that your wallet is feeling a little stressed, that's okay, too. Yoga To The People has studios in several locations, where studios are becoming more and more popular with the support of many community members who simply want to practice yoga, whether it is for fitness, health, or for their spiritual well-being, all that matters is that people get on the mat. Check out Yoga To The People's website for more information about the practice, locations, and teacher training opportunities.
Wild Belle Music Love
Ever since seeing Wild Belle perform at Coachella 2013, I have been hooked. Wild Belle, a band composed of siblings Elliot and Natalie Bergman from Chicago, just released their debut album Isles in March. The album, inspired by soul, jazz, and reggae sounds is the perfect soundtrack for a day of lounging in the park or by the beach, walking through the streets of San Francisco, or driving in your car with the windows down. The band not only has a great sound, but also great style. Some of my favorite songs right now are "It's Too Late", "Another Girl" and, of course, Wild Belle's first single, "Keep You". The band will be gracing audiences with their funky sound throughout the rest of the festival season at festivals such as Lollapalooza and Outside Lands. Check out their website and tunes, we promise they won't disappoint.
