I know that Monday’s are usually reserved for Room for Thought but I have been incredibly busy this week so I have not been able to think about anything serious and form a coherent train of thought. However, Autumn is here and now that it is getting cold and the days are shortening I want to share my favorite artists to enjoy this season.
1. Jack JohnsonFirst of all, Jack Johnson. This man is a musical genius and has helped me through countless rainy evenings, Sunday study sessions and late night food cravings. Jack’s music is very laid back and actually has more of a Summer vibe. Which is why I think it is perfect for fall. It keeps the dreadful weather from raining on your mood. My favorite songs are: All at Once, Better Together, Do You Remember and Upside Down.
2. John Mayer
3. Florence + the MachineFlorence is very different from the others but nonetheless very awesome. She has a very unique voice and sound and while I definitely do not like all of her songs I think she is great when it comes to soundtrack to your evening of tea and books. My favorite songs are: Wish That You Were Here, Shake it Out and Dog Days Are Over.
4. Gavin JamesI genuinely think that Gavin James is a gift from God. While I did not like his breakthrough hit Book of Love I came across the rest of his album a while back and was immediately sold. To me he is like the male version of Adele. His songs are beautifully written and quite calm which makes it easy to focus on your reading when it plays in the background. Now my all time favorite song of his is Nervous. The acoustic version is the best. I have no problem with listening that same song for over 20 times in a row. It is so incredibly beautiful! Other songs are: Remember Me and Bitter Pill.
5. AdeleAnd finally, the woman with the powerhouse voice, Adele. I do not care how cliché it might sound but I think she is absolutely amazing. Of course, you have her well known hits but the rest of her albums are also very much worth a listen. Songs from Adele that I would recommend are: Remedy, Hometown Glory and Make You Feel My Love.
