What I'm Listening to Now
Every time I write a piece, there's a playlist of music that I keep floating around me. I use this to get familiar with new sounds, keep myself focused on what I want to create, and just enjoy. I thought you might like to hear it too!
I update it pretty frequently and you can probably guess what kinds of things I'm working on by giving it a listen! Feel free to follow the playlist on Spotify!
