Journalist of the Week: Devon Calhoun
This week, I decided that junior Devon Calhoun needs to be recognized for her hard work on Bucknell’s campus. Not only is she a fabulous new addition to our Campus Vinyl BucknellU staff, but she’s also president of Bucknell’s oldest co-ed a cappella group, Two Past Midnight. (check them out here) Check out my interview with her and her go-to playlist!
If your life had a soundtrack and you could only pick two musicians/bands to play every track, who would they be and why?
If my life had a soundtrack, the two musicians that would play every track would be Bob Dylan and Phillip Phillips. Bob Dylan always tells it how it is and has the most honest tone to his voice. Being real and honest is something I find very important and Dylan conveys it in a fun loving way. Phillip Phillips for some reason gets me every time. I find his music so inspirational and positive, when I turn on his album it makes me feel like a million bucks.
If you could change/improve one thing about Bucknell’s music scene, what would it be?
Definitely more venues for acoustic artists. Whether they be solo artists or not, I think Bucknell's campus has a lot of untapped potential that would be seen if we had a bigger scene of open-mic type things. Instead of choosing people to perform we can give people a chance to volunteer their own talents.
What genre, artist, or group do you listen to when you need a good stress relief?
I'd say either the Songza playlist "Today's Dance Club Hits" while getting a good workout in or the song "Hell of a Season" by The Black Keys.
What’s the best concert you have ever been to?
It's a tie between the Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour and Justin Timberlakes Future Sex Love Sound Tour.
