I have this habit of downloading free music whether I want it or not.

Every so often, Google Play Music will offer albums for free. Never one to look a gift album in the mouth, I will naturally download it. When Google did this with the Broadway cast recording of the musical Hamilton, of course I downloaded it. But since I had no real vested interest in it, I never listened to it. (I did the same thing with Steve Aoki, Kaskade, and some country rap thing.)

So sometime last week I was listening to Caleb Hyles on shuffle. He does a bunch of different covers, including a lot of Disney, Price of Egypt, Kingdom Hearts, and others. Anyhoo, so Guns and Ships from Hamilton came on, and I really liked it.

So now I’m listening to the whole original cast recording, thanks to Caleb (and also my sister Lydia who prompted me way back when).

Husband. Daddy. Programmer. Artist. I’m not an expert, I just play one in real life.
