The Maine Academy of Modern Music and Playing for Change Foundation chose my roommate and friend Dominic Lavoie's song "Be in Love" to represent Portland and to help raise money to purchase musical instruments for schoolkids. Local filmmakers, many of whom I work with (another that I live with!) made this video showcasing Portland's incredible music scene. What's funny is that pretty much half of them have lived with me or currently live with me, and the other half frequent our house--I am so grateful to be surrounded by musicians! And what a song--it's a classic--everyone knows all the words when Dominic and the Lucid play it live--even at Dominic and Kim's wedding in August! Check out the video--absolutely gorgeous.
