Shuffle

Artist: Katie Herzig

Song/Album: Lost and Found/The Waking Sleep

Date Released: September 22, 2011

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

How I heard about Katie: She is a Nashville artist and a Mocha Club artist.  I’m sure it was one or both of these things that put her on my radar.

What I like: For starters, the lyrics and the music are a perfect fit.

It could be the theme song for this season of my life or maybe just life in general.  Some areas of my life have never felt so right while other areas feel completely disjointed.  I’m guessing this tension never really goes away.  The space between lost and found is what it means to be human, I think.  It’s nice to know that I can exist in both places simultaneously.  That’s where I am right now anyway, and this song says it so much better than I know how.  It says all of this and leaves the taste of hope on my lips after I’ve finished singing.

I also love the video.  The idea of looking for a glimpse of light is just part of being human I think.  Some say it’s fate, some coincidence, and on my more hopeful days I attribute this light to a loving Father.  No matter where we think our light is coming from, it’s something that we can all understand.

Also, that final chorus straight up soars.

What I don’t like: I have no complaints.

Shuffle

I know, I know. I missed last week, and I’m 19 minutes away from missing this Wednesday too. I’m sorry.

Instead of picking one song or artist this week, I’d like to talk about one of my favorite things, Spotify. At first, I thought it was just another Pandora knock off. But it’s not. It’s so much more.

I decided to pay for the premium package because I was spending so much money on music every month. I thought I’d give it a try, and see if having one subscription would keep me from buying so much. To my surprise, it really has worked. I only buy things that I really really want or artists that I really want to support. Otherwise, those random urges to listen to Dolly Parton result in a Spotify search rather than a $1.29 purchase. It is glorious.

I’d like to leave you with a playlist I made for an event that I helped plan last week. I was a bit nervous as never making a playlist for such an occasion. However, I am happy to report that I got a couple of compliments on the music and the event wasn’t so bad either. I’ve been listening to the playlist ever since, and if I do say so myself, it’s pretty good. It has a good helping of some of the best Nashville has to offer like Katie Herzig, Dave Barnes, Daniel Ellsworth & the Great Lakes, and a few more. Give it a listen and send me one of your favorite playlists. I’m always looking for new music.
