Amidst my overthinking about where I want to take Mass Musings (especially after the move), I realized something. No matter what happens with this blog, what direction it goes in, or doesn’t, I know that I will always be thankful. Thankful because, without this blog I wouldn’t have met some of my closest friends or gained some of my most precious experiences. 

That’s how I met Billy. A little over a year ago, Billy Kenny slid into Drew’s DMs (before it was a thing). He was really impressed with the write up on Kyle Watson, and was curious as to how he could get involved. At the time, we were an ocean apart and I hadn’t really begun implementing my own photography into the music portion of the blog. So, we stuck to a traditional interview and felt good about featuring such a prominent, up and coming artist, and that was that. However, Drew and Billy really hit it off and the next thing I knew, we were all together at Dirtybird Campout, busting a move. 

Since that time, Billy has become one of my closest friends. We joke and say that we are the same person… But it’s kind of eerie how similar we really are. Billy and I have an uncanny understanding of each other: we react similarly in various situations, deal with our emotions in comparable ways, and also have a very similar creative and social streak that leave us with an insatiable need to connect and be around people. Aside from that, never have I ever had so much fun belting out “Barbara Streisand” at the top of my lungs, or harmonizing to obscure beats with anyone else. I’m so grateful that I can call Billy a homie because of our common interest in music. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: music brings people together. Mass Musings brings people together too and I’m hopeful that it will for a very long time. 

To celebrate friendship, music and the sheer ridiculousness that ensues every time we hang out, Billy submitted his own playlist, just for Mass Musings followers. In his own words: “It’s a collection of tracks that I wouldn’t usually play but that I absolutely love!” Press play and enjoy.
