Let’s Settle the Spotify vs. Apple Music Debate

welcomelittle one!

I have been obsessed with music for as long as I can remember. I joined the school choir in third grade – the first year you were allowed to join – and I stuck with it through my senior year of high school. I participated in honors choir in middle school – aka my 12-year-old self got out of bed an hour earlier than normal 2x a month to sing in the audition-only group that met before school.

10 Shows To See in Chicago This Fall

Untitled design-3.png

Happy (unofficial) start of fall! This is my favorite time of the year for many reasons but mostly because so many fall tours are announced on top of new music releases that close out the year. I’ve done posts like this for the past two years (you can check them out below) and knew I had to do it again since there are SO many shows I am dying to check out this fall. I definitely won’t be able to make all of them just cause that’s #expensive but I will be trying my hardest to see as many of these shows as possible.

Fall 2018 Playlist

welcomelittle one!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already fall of 2018…this year completely flew by.  Fall is probably my favorite time of the year in general and for music…I think it brings a completely different vibe to things and it’s my favorite time of the year to create playlists for. With that being said…here is the start to my Fall 2018 playlist! It still feels like summer in Chicago but September is unofficially the start of fall to me.

The artists featured with an asterisk next to their name mean they’re touring in Chicago this fall (as of now. Obviously these things get announced all the time so by the time you are reading there will likely be more scheduled).

You can follow the playlist on Spotify here.
