Hi! I’m Leah Anne Cuevo. If you’re from Chicago and you like indie music, you probably know me as DJ Yang from WCXP 107.1FM. And if you’re from my homeland, PH, you probably also know me as Dudel, Yangkee, Yangster, or whatever other name that my college friends have birthed for me (uh, thanks guys?). My hobbies revolve around art, literature, and independent music. I love coffee, Audrey Hepburn, memes, and inverted smileys. (: Welcome to my little creativity bin!

 

I’ve been (over)sharing random yet nice stuff in my humble blog since 2008. And in some way, I want to turn it into a place for people to find inspiration — whatever the form (art, music, or text), so I created musekeeper. It is a selection of music, artists, books, and other sources of inspiration that grabs my attention every day — muses, that I have curated for myself and hopefully, YOU.

On featured music: They’re overviews, not reviews. I just want to share them to people who haven’t heard of them yet OR share about what I love about them if you do know about an artist/album/event that I feature. It’s more fun, trust me.

On featured books: I don’t want to spoil things for you. Instead of “reviews,” I give you meaningful reasons why you should read them BY establishing a thoughtful connection between the characters and us hooooomans.

On people, places, & experiences: You are who (and what) you surround yourself with. The people and places featured here are special because they moved me to create.
