Every Day.2016

My name is Amelia, and I LOVE music.

The past decade, I have found myself inundated with radio shows, mix tapes, compliation CDs, playlists, Pop-up Video, TRL (yes, that happened at one time) and now music apps like Pandora & Spotify. I rarely listen to an album in its entirety. I have challenged myself to listen to a different album every day (week days), for the entire year.

I will also be sharing my musical memoirs, and how music shaped my life.

Download Spotify & follow along🙂

This is a link to every entry and a link to every album on Spotify! Enjoy! 🙂
