Taye Cannon Invites You To De-Single-Fy at Holy Mountain Valentine’s Day Lovers Ball

By now you know that Holy Mountain and Keep It Local have put together an epic Valentine’s Day party on Thursday, February 14, 2013 for you: A Lovers Ball featuring Cilantro Boombox (featuring members of Poi Dog Pondering, Thievery Corporation, and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears), ROXY ROCA, and DJ sets from T-Bird (of T-Bird and The Breaks). However, what you might not know is that A Lovers Ball is not just for couples. In fact, it might just be THE place to de-single-fy yourself this Valentine’s Day. Let’s listen in and let Taye tell us all about it…

Where It All Started

Most of us have experienced a defining moment when it comes to music. Maybe it was the first time you heard James Brown or Otis Redding. It’s different for everybody, but we all know that moment when we first heard the music that changed everything for us.

Taye Cannon took a few minutes to sit down and talk about his defining musical moment: the sound that started him down the path to becoming a soul singer. Growing up in Alabama, Taye spent a lot of time listening to his dad’s record collection. One track in particular got his attention: Fats Domino‘s “I’m Gonna Be a Wheel Some Day.” The rest, as they say, is history. Tell ‘em about it, Taye.
