DoYouHearTheMusic.com – 2015 Final Playlist

29 Dec

Last days of 2015 call for the last playlist of 2015! Without further adieu here is a compilation of tracks I’ve been digging this year.

And FWIW, Spotify is doing its Year in Music and my most listened to artist was Chris Stapleton followed by Leon Bridges and this winter, Big Grams. No real shock here at all but there is a whole lot more music to get listening to and a even more big releases coming early in 2016.  Open up those ears and get listening! See you in 2016.

Must Have Music: Frank Turner – England Keep My Bones

13 Dec

You ever listen to an artist/band for the first time only to discover they have been around for quite some time, have released a few albums and wonder, “where the hell have I been?”  Well it happened to me last month with Frank Turner and damn, I cannot get enough of his record, England Keep My Bones, his FOURTH album.   I now find myself listening to his previous works to catch myself up to what I’ve been missing but continuously being drawn back to his latest record which was released this past summer.  Turner exudes a singer-songwriter, folk, punk style unlike anything I’ve ever heard.

Say hello to Frank Turner and give a listen to one of best albums of 2011.
