Weekly Music

This mix has been a long time coming. I collect beautiful songs like objects, carefully selected for the times when I feel the need to close my eyes and sing along, or emailed to my brother to learn on the guitar so we can play it when we next see each other. They’re for times when I need to feel better (some are uplifting), or times when I need the song to help pull the sadness out of that knot in my chest (some are quite melancholy). These were not selected for their cool factor or because they’re new – some of them cater to the fact that I love to sing and may not be for everyone. Enjoy.
