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!
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.
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!
For this song of the week I’ve been listening to a lot of Rex Orange County. Reason being is that it’s all my boyfriend has been playing everyday lol. But hey, I like it. We actually stumbled upon him when I was watching music videos for Jakob Ogawa and I saw a video for Rex Orange County, and since then my boyfriend has been hooked listening to him every day. We were surprised to find out that Rex was featured in two of Tyler The Creators songs in his new album Flower Boy. Damn this music world is so diverse and interconnected. I love it so much

Loving is Easy
Learning about these new artists just feels so rewarding and welcoming. New music is good to expose yourself to.
Give it a listen, Give music a chance.
