What is on your music playlist right now?
I just let out a big sigh of relief, reading this question. It’s straightforward. It’s easy. It’s not going to force me into a place of deep reflection. And, that feels perfect for a Friday. I’m tired today, so I’m going to revel in the simplicity of my answer.
My go-to singer/songwriter for the past 6 months has been Brett Dennen. I love his lyrics, his unique voice, and the way he plays his guitar. I enjoy his music so much, he’s the reason I’ve got tickets to go to a music festival at the end of April. And checking out the lineup of that festival, I discovered other artists that have found their way to my playlist: Brandi Carlile; Joshua Radin; Lake Street Dive; and Caamp.
When I want a break from the folksy sound, I enjoy relaxing times with Mozart or Norah Jones. If I want a bit of a pick-me-up, I switch to AJR or Avicii.
The rest of the time, I just let Spotify just play similar songs. That’s how I’ve found some other artists I really like Joy Oladokun and Trevor Hall.
Alrighty, it’s time to get to work. Currently playing: String Quintet No. 3 in C Major by Mozart.
