"How Music Works" by David Bryne

Bolinas Ridge Trail
Head to Point Reyes for a nice, spring hike on the Bolinas Ridge Trail, located off of Sir Francis Drake Blvd. The 10.5-mile trail starts in Samuel Taylor Park. Parking is limited so the trail isn’t usually crowded. The views of the valley are amazing and hikers say it's dog friendly.

The LA artist is a singer, songwriter and bass player. His album "It Is What It Is" earned him a Best Progressive R&B Album. Thundercat's style of R&B is eclectic. Watch his video "Dragonball Durag."
