Nothing gets me quite as excited as music does. Music is such an integral part of my life, and has been for as long as I can remember. I see music as a powerful way to connect us to others, inspire us, and make us feel like we’re not alone. New music always feels a little magical, kind of like Christmas morning. I’m especially excited for this fall because some of my favorite artists are releasing new albums. Here are some of the albums that I’m most looking forward to this fall.

Dawes is a band known for their folk-rock sound. The California band’s sound usually consists of a more banjo-focused, laid back vibe. However, the group has completely veered away from their traditional sound with their new album, We’re All Gonna Die. The band’s fifth album takes a stylistic detour, instead boasting a more R&B type sound with storytelling lyrics. This newly found upbeat, funky sound is taking Dawes in an exciting and new direction.
For many of us, summer is the chance to take a break and get some traveling in. Whether you’re traveling around your own state, or traveling the world, it’s always nice to have a playlist prepared!
