Music to My Ears: Family Weekend

Music 5

Hey y’all! I’m Eimi (pronounced ‘Amy’) and I’m your sophomore correspondent for Music to My Ears, my personal outlet that showcases the different facets that Brown’s music scene has to offer!

I’m back! Sorry about the lack of a post last week; I was sick and slumping BIG TIME from my Carnegie high… it can be super difficult to recover from being on Cloud 9 to not.
