Lyrical Storytellers Playlist

All songwriters are storytellers. Some are better than others, yet go unnoticed for too long. The beauty of song lyrics is that in a relatively short period of time, powerful stories are told, stories that impact us and connect us together. This week our music playlist includes some new, old and emerging lyrical storytelling for you to discover and share. Enjoy!
