And it’s my favorite day of the month again: Tunesday! My monthly playlist has kind of started a cycle for getting inspired and pretty dang excited for the month ahead- it’s like a musical reminder of a fresh start and in today’s case, a kick off to summer (…now only if we can get mom nature on the same page as my playlist)!
This month I’ve had the pleasure of attending a concert of one of the featured artists on the playlists. What started as a night of head bopping and foot tapping turned into a night of socially unacceptably dancing in my seat, and (clearly) turned me in a huge fan of Kodaline, a Dublin quartet turned American sensation. We were even able to pair up with Skype and get an exclusive behind the scenes look at the inner workings of the band and their new single, One Night Only.
Clearly, as a blogger and writer, to claim I’m a huge fan of words is a somewhat offensive understatement. I have a 400 page journal filled with quotes, almost always have a book in hand and literally get goosebumps when the right words are strung together. One of my major obsessions with Kodaline isn’t just the catchy rhythm and instrumentals, but the words behind the lyrics. ALL of the goosebumps, and I’m not saying that lightly. This band is a must check out- whether their down to earth natures amidst their current rise to fame, or the lyrics I can’t stop obsessing over, it was a logical extension that they’ve recently been chosen for Skype’s #OnesToWatch campaign. It’s a pretty stinkin’ big achievement to be included on this year’s list, but it’s also exciting for us- think finding out about up and coming bands before they get wildly famous and owning full bragging rights to being the one in your friend group that got everybody obsessed.

Have a great week, L&C loves- hope this playlist keeps you inspired!
