The Greater Good is a space to discuss the music I love and the artists I respect. Years and years of passionate listening time, delving into as many different genres as possible, and a strong connection to artists and other creatives has sparked inspiration in me to begin writing about the healing properties of music and the ways it can bridge societal and cultural gaps.

At The Greater Good, you’ll find album, EP, and single reviews, as well as interviews and articles written about music as philosophy and therapy.

I don’t like rap music at all. I don’t think it’s music. It’s just a beat and rapping.

Nina Simone

I don’t like shit too perfect. I want some human stake in my shit. If it’s too perfect, I ain’t really with it. If it’s too clean, I ain’t really with it. If it’s too polished, I don’t really like it.


A gentleman is someone who can play the accordion, but doesn’t.
