Crossover Artistry Playlist & Players


Chris Cornell Soundgarden alternative higher truth I’ll admit to being a little lost when some folks tell me about their favorite styles of music. Subgenres have become more confusing over time, with so many genres crossing over into each other. For me, great artistry happens in a variety of places. Artists who find their love for different aspects of songwriting (lyrics, composition, arrangement, and instrumentation) illustrate powerful crossover artistry. These albums are the focus this time, with a collection of relatively new releases. Enjoy!
