Music is my escape. My mom will tell you that my iPod, or some form of music (whether it’s Spotify, Pandora or YouTube) is almost constantly playing in my room. I have a very eclectic taste in music- so it’s not unusual for me to listen to folk, country, pop and dubstep all in the same week. Normally though, I tend to gravitate more towards sort of folk-ish, mellow music. Artists like Andrew Duhon, Ray LaMontagne, Amos Lee, Norah Jones, Joshua Radin, Jack Johnson and Corinne Bailey Rae are some of my staples.
It’s actually surprising to me that I haven’t talked about music at all on our blog, considering how much I love it. I know that technically it’s not fashion-related, but it’s definitely an obsession, so here’s this week’s music themed Fashion Friday.
Here are some songs/CD’s/artists that I’ve been absolutely loving recently.
I Am by Crowder
I just heard this song for the first time the other night and I love it. David Crowder’s voice is amazing. How He Loves, another one of his songs, is one of my all-time favorites. On an unrelated note- isn’t the cover of this album so cool?
This guy’s voice is incredible. I love his song Shelter You Through. I can only find live versions of him on YouTube, but I think that he’s one of those few people who actually sound better live. When my mom listened to one of his songs the other day, she said he reminded her a bit of Van Morrison, one of her favorite artists, which leads to my next featured song….
Brown-Eyed Girl by Van Morrison
It’s an oldie but a goodie.
Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong United
One of my absolute favorite worship songs. Beautiful and so meaningful.
Play It Again by Luke Bryan
I told you my taste in music was a little random.
Peace on Earth Christmas CD by Casting Crowns
This is an amazing Christmas CD- I love the first song on the album, I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.
Jack Johnson may be the artist that I’ve most consistently listened to for the longest period of time. I just never get tired of his music. Better Together, is of course, one of my favorites, but I also love Do You Remember, Adrift and Constellations.
Dream a Little Dream of Me by Michael Buble
Michael Buble’s style of music is so cool- very big band.
Black River by Amos Lee
His music is so mellow and relaxing. Sweet Pea is another favorite of mine.
