Representing Me Parts 1 & 2 Playlists & Streaming Players

Representing Me Part 1 Playlist

Here’s the thing about great music and the artists we follow the most:
Their songs reflect our beliefs, values, and ideas. We find ourselves, our stories, our hopes and dreams in them. Sometimes we find our experiences told in a way we never could in the songs we love most.

This realization was the fuel for this series. In Part 1 of the Representing Me series, it’s all alt-rock and punk from some of the bands that tell my story, values, and beliefs in poetic language beyond my abilities. In part 2, it’s indie rock and folk, keying in specifically on relationships and what happens there, good and bad. That’s the human story.

What about you and your stories? What songs represent you? Let me know. I’m contemplating carrying this series on into a Part 3 based on what you tell me about how music and your story fit together. You can let me know what songs and artists you’d like to hear that represent you by emailing dgrant@dgrantsmith.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.
