About My Spilt Milk

My Spilt Milk covers music and culture in New Orleans, We demystify the arts as we focus on how artists work and why they make the choices they do. We’re getting granular with it. 

People say music seeps up through the concrete here, and that kind of magical thinking overlooks the work people do and the stimuli they respond to. 

We want readers to see music—all music, including rock, hip-hop and EDM, in addition to jazz, funk, Cajun and zydeco—and art as a natural response to living in New Orleans and southern Louisiana. We hope that in our stories, we can give readers one more thing to think about. One more question to ask. One more circumstance to take into account. As they think about that one more thing, we hope they’ll become better participants in their culture.
