Songwriter Soup Playlist


Fresh New Music Over the past few weeks I’ve explored some different variations of songwriters and in doing so, realized that there’s a great food metaphor that could be used. Some of you haven’t enjoyed my use of food metaphors in the past, so I’ve been working to use them in specific instances to really make a point. This week’s Songwriter Soup is such an instance, blending legends like Paul Simon and Joni Mitchell with the new generation’s songwriters like Rachael Yamagata and Mat Kearney. Brand new music from Texas artist Vanessa Peters and Kris Orlowski in the mix. The playlist menu this time is more heavy in the folk/singer-songwriter realm with both new and emerging artists as well as a few established names. Be sure to add the songs you enjoy to your music library with the iTunes or other purchase link on the tail end of each track listing.

Enjoy!
