SOTW #35

This week was the start of school. I went through some crisis with classes, registration, and financial aid. However, I prevailed! I heard some devastating news about Dolores O’riordan. The main singer and iconic voice of the Cranberries has passed away.

So recently I’ve been reminiscing two of my most favorite songs from The Cranberries

The Cranberries – Forever Yellow Skies

The Cranberries – Dreams

I shocked me to hear this news. Her voice has always been one of my inspirations to sing. She was a fashion icon- a beautiful musician and soul. Her music brings so much nostalgia when I was little. I remember being in the car and my mother playing their songs on the radio. I remember getting my first iPod and my Dad putting songs by The Cranberries.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

SOTW #34

This week is the last week I’ll be home. So lately I’ve been listening to my Chillz playlist and these are a few songs that I have been obsessing.

Chill Out by Triathalon

Listen to the bass, if that doesn’t hook you then I don’t know what does.

I’ve been really into..

Midnight Maxwell Young

Humming Man by Men I Trust

I really hope you enjoy these picks. Let me know and enjoy the rest of your break!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

Winter and New Years Playlist

I made this playlist last year in December. But since its going to be cold for the time being, here is my Chillz playlist of 2017-2018. I won’t be taking out any songs or sorting it, but I will add more songs and artists. If it ends up being too messy I’ll make a more organized playlist. I originally created this one to keep all the new songs I found from the band Triathalon and Twin Peaks. I hope you enjoy it!

I wrote a song

This is something I have never done before.

I decided, just for fun, to write a song. It was hard at first but I eventually got the hang of it. I had a lot of inspiration from other artists and Wes Anderson, and especially someone special in my life. I feel that this is a big achievement for me and I hope to make more songs in the future for this year. I never knew I was capable to make something original like this. I hope whoever is reading this will listen to it and share it with other people!

Love

My Spotify Wrapped 2017

I thought it was pretty neat that Spotify did this for their listeners…

Well, it is coming to the end of the Year and I wanted to share with you my wrap up of the year 2017. Now, for a lot of people 2017 has been a shit year- and I can’t agree with you more. But some of it has been really great. I have special people in my life, and I have wonderful music to accompany me. This was the year that I decided to change my major and to do something that I love and that I know I want to improve in. It’s been a year full of music and emotional roller coaster, and what I’m thankful for was making it out in the end.

My top songs of 2017 are definitely me. Mac Demarco has been one of the biggest influences and highlight of my year. I can’t believe I had the chance to see him. I have to admit, it was one of the greatest most surreal moments of my life.  Tyler the Creator has been a big hello for me. I remember it was nighttime in Japan and Tyler just released his newest album. I remember my boyfriend reminding me to listen to it. It was so beautiful and we both automatically had our favorites.IMG_1898

With this playlist below, some of the songs I did listen too. But I’m glad they gave me some new recommendations! Rex Orange County and Clario have been reoccurring artists for me and becoming some of my newest favorites.

Sometimes I feel like my mind is overloaded with music. But I think it’s great inspiration for me to write music and get started on projects and writing. I have so many ideas that are waiting to be released. I really should get to work on them!

I hope you guys had a good 2017. I know it must have been hard, but at least the music has been there for mine and your support. Music is love!
