2016 Best-of Playlist

Coachella 2016 with the crew, Weekend 2 | April 26, 2016

Dan and I are big on Coachella. Last April was our our 8th consecutive attendance. We have been going since 2009 and that year, we spent our honeymoon at our first Coachella. We have so many amazing memories!

Music is such a big part of my life and I once wanted to pursue becoming a professional musician. All my life I'm surrounded by it and late into high school and all throughout college I fronted and wrote for bands. Good times.

I've decided to put together my best-of playlist this year. Please note there is a good variety of genres. I try to have an "open ear" when it comes to music but I'm still not quite as open as my husband. He listens to all sorts of music. I typically rotate between reggae, indie rock, rock pop and alternative music to some contemporary fusion ones even a few eclectic sounds. Maybe you'll find something you like! I'm the worst at naming genres and it doesn't help that there are quite a bit of genre-bending tracks so forgive me if I miss-labeled.
