How does a sound define a season? It’s something I wonder about a lot when listening to music. In the late winter and early spring, I’m looking for feel-good pop-rock songs. In the summer, I’m all about oldies. Fall leads to a lot of rock and alternative listening, and winter always equals acoustic music.
I’m not 100% sure how this came to be for me, as a music fan. Perhaps I need to pick up a few of those music psychology books I’ve snagged over the years and finally read them to better understand this phenomenon.
What I do know, however, is that as soon as September 1 hit this year, everyone was creating and sharing their acoustic autumn playlists. But one thing I noticed?
Not many include female artists.
So I decided to create a quiet, cozy little fall playlist of exclusively female artists. This isn’t meant to be a political statement of any kind or declaration of feminist beliefs, so please don’t read it as such. It’s simply meant to be an alternative autumnal playlist for you as we finish out the final month of fall 2015.
By the way – thanks to everyone who responded to my Tweets seeking out female artists. You’ll find some of your suggestions are included…but honestly, you guys gave me such a long list of killer suggestions that I’m still working my way through it! So stay tuned – this is yet another playlist in progress.
