That Songwriter Playlist & Player


recover-deleted-files-from-cd-4 Remember in the movie Charlotte’s Web (and in the children’s book) where Charlotte the spider made a big deal out of Wilber so that other people would know he was worth paying attention to? Great songwriters have that capacity too. They do it with 1 song.

This week I wanted to make note of some new artists (and a few other or older ones as well) who are remarkable in their songbooks. I wanted to highlight some new and older records that you need to dive into, add to your collection and spend some personal time with. This collection does all of that and more. Enjoy!
