AHH! Time is moving so fast these days I can’t believe October is almost over. Here’s a quick little playlist to keep your spirit up as you dive into a hectic full calendar while fending off the chilly weather.

My Personal List of Women in Music: March Playlist

Here’s the March Playlist!

Considering March is Women’s History Month, I figured the entire playlist should pay homage to women in music.   Many of the songs included in this list have been released by the artists pretty recently, but not all of them.  Towards the end I started to include some of my all time favorite songs from female vocalists/musicians/songwriters from over the years.

My love for women in music started with Carole King.  ‘I feel the Earth Move’ was my first favorite song, and consequently prompted me to purchasing her album Tapestry as my first CD.  I still find myself seeking out this album for comfort on occasion.

In college I was exposed to a much more broad spectrum of music from independent artists, but still drawn to female singers.  Rilo Kiley was and probably still is one of my favorites bands, with front woman, Jenny Lewis, singing her (and my) heart out.

Jenny has gone on to pursue a solo career as a singer/songwriter and is still producing heartfelt, beautiful music.

Tegan & Sara are also right up there with Rilo Kiley for me, and always have been.  These Canadian twins produce some of the most beautiful songs of the heart I’ve ever heard.

All of these women in music have played a huge role in cultivating my love of women in music and I continue to enjoy their work regularly, as well as seeking out other amazing women changing the music landscape every day.

Happy listening!
