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.

I turned two today! Well, DoYouHearTheMusic.com did!

Crazy for me to think that two years ago I started this online journal aka my music spot on the massive internet aka a blog.  I think what I’m most excited about is that I haven’t given up and that I’ve tried to keep posting new, interesting and fun content to share with friends and people I have never met (closing in on 700 posts!).  But the most joy I get out of penning doyouhearthemusic.com is when someone tells me they love xyz band I posted, dug that new song or tell me a new band to check out.  Music is the universal language that can connect everyone in some shape or form and I’m just happy being a piece to that puzzle.

The last year has brought me incredible memories via music.  I spent 15 of the coolest minutes of my life talking to Mr. Jimmy Cliff. That interview ran in Vegas SEVEN as did my chats with Walk The Moon, Foster The People and Ryan Bingham.  I made my radio debut and started writing for a second publication getting to feature DJs.  I made my first trip to Lollapalooza (to which I am going back to tomorrow), I returned to Bonnaroo and reveled in four glorious days of music with incredible friends.  I discovered new bands and musicians like The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Sleeper Agent, San Cisco, Clement Marfo & The Frontline, New Navy, Baywood, Jukebox The Ghost, Zach Heckendorf….you get the point, I could go on forever.  I saw some incredible concerts with the likes of rising stars Vintage Trouble and Allen Stone to some of my favorites like Dave Matthews Band, O.A.R., G. Love and Dispatch.  Said goodbye to some truly amazing musicians who’s music I grew up listening to (RIP Adam Yauch, Whitney Houston, Levon Helm, Donna Summer, Robin Gibb, Etta James, Davy Jones).

All in, not a bad 365 days!  But where do I go from here?  Guess we’ll just have to wait and see but if the stars align, the next year could be the most rocking one ever!

Peace + Love + Music
