May flowers are in full bloom and we get to share all this wonderful music with you. Take a listen to what Staff have in store from groups like the Rebirth Brass Band to new music from Tyler, The Creator and Chris Lee-Rodriguez!

Dream Song” by Chris Lee Rodriguez

Yes, our very own Chris Lee Rodriguez just released his first solo EP! It’s about love, family, and personhood, and it’s raw and real and good. It was hard to chose just one pick – the whole EP flows really well together and is a great listen from front to back – but I think Dream Song is my favorite right now. Definitely gives you that disorienting, but warm, dreamy feel.” – Sarah Saydun, Pathways Coordinator
