Monthly Music Mix: Ignite & Inspire

“In art and dream may you proceed with abandon.” – Patti Smith

Inspiration is sneaky. It can come from any angle, any direction, in any form. The trick is to answer its call when inspiration comes knocking. While we all have different outlets to stoke our creativity, oftentimes music can link us to a certain feeling of wonder and imagination. September, in particular, can feel like a fresh canvas, so this playlist has been catered to spark the visionary spirit within.

Dream on, dreamers.

How are you getting inspired this month?

    This is SUCH a delightful mix — thank you for such inspiring music, from amazing artists that I think need to be more well-known for their talent.
    I am appreciative!
