today is beautiful, we have things to do

music is almost worthless to me unless it elevates me and makes me feel something. different types of music touches my different emotional levels, and when i am creating something i need a stimulation from music that is created not produced. visual artist/musician john lambert aka chequerboard is a creative soul, and it mirrors in his music and is contagious.

i discovered chequerboard during a stay in galway in ireland about five years ago, and almost every time i've edited photos i've listened to his previous works, so you can only imagine how excited i got when i found out he was working on a new album. this is his first single from the upcoming album
