People have got to chill. There is so much great music being made these days. I couldn’t limit it to 5. I couldn’t put it in any order. Because some days any one of these could be on top of the list. So, I just revel in it all. I don’t care about styles, genres, haircuts. I like: soul, straightforward people, speaking their truth. Time and place. But timeless. I like what I like. And I like to share, but I’m not telling you what to listen to. This is just me. And I’m grateful I get to do this for a living. Long live artists willing to make a statement. I’m looking forward to hearing something that will blow me away, sure to come the rest of this year.

Here is a Spotify playlist for you to check out. Just to throw .00003 cents into these artists’ coffers.
