My Heart Sings a Little Love Song

Music is a huge part of my life. A friend of mine, Becky Call, asked me on twitter if I could recommend some good music for her, and not wanting to over-capacitate the site, I decided to post them on here. Most of these songs or artists you may have never heard of before, but please give them a try. In my opinion, the most talented musicians are the ones that are the least popular.

I’ve highlighted my all time favourites, but every single one of these songs is amazing. And if you actually listen to all of them – and like them – I will love you forever. <3
