My daughter Bailey is into a band named Vulfpeck- and the “family tree” from that band has led to quite a few great musical discoveries for me. One of them is Theo Katzman, a Vulfpeck member who also leads his own projects.

If you’re into cool, funky grooves check this one out. Katzman is an outstanding songwriter so don’t be surprised if he pops up again here often. Or better yet- beat me to it and explore his stuff on your own- either way you’ll be hearing some great music.

Here’s one of my Katzman favorites- Lily of Casblanca.
