  1. Congrats to the winners! Happy New Year, Jess!

    1. Thanks Susie! Get your boogie on! Happy new year to you!

  2. Jealous of the winners, but congrats to them!!

    Hey Jess… “Hello?” 😳

    1. Well, some people said they were already sick of the song, so while I did buy her whole album, I selected a different song ultimately for the mix. Don’t be too bummed with me!

  3. Yay!!! Thank you. I definitely discover some great music through you. I did recently find a website that features new tunes and listened to quite a few. I really need to keep up!

    1. Um……do share! What’s the website?

      And you need to check out Songza! It’s an app and website, though they are soon to transition to google play so maybe just do that now. Anyway they offer playlists like pandora but you can pick them based on your mood and then sub categories! I freaking love this site and find a lot of good stuff that way. Currently digging the Daughters of Folk playlist.

      1. Songza rocks! Bummed they were bought out by Google.

        1. I haven’t converted yet. I hope it’s as good. The creators’ video message sounds like they’re still involved and keeping true to the best parts of their product. Hope so!!

  4. I totally missed your earlier post about this!! But I’m excited to find some new music here!! 🙂

    1. Maybe you’ll find something fun for your own playlists!

  5. LP rocks! Whoever suggested LP is awesome!
    Love to you, and Happy New Year! ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

    1. Awww thanks Ms Dana!! And I just happened upon LP. How fortuitous is that?!! Thanks ITunes!

      1. That means you’re the one who’s awesome! 🙂

  6. I don’t know, but I guess I’ll be doing some listening here and hopefully adding to my own ever-expanding playlists!

    1. Are you a First Aid Kit fan? They are quickly becoming my fave band.

      1. “The Lion’s Roar” was the first song I learned to play on uke 🙂

  7. Lots of good stuff on here! And “Alive” was playing as I read 🙂

    1. I really love Sia’s music video for that song.

  8. I’m soooo excited! Thank you. And happy you liked Cam’s Burning House!

    1. Your CDs will go in today’s mail!!

  9. Congratulations Amy and Julie! Via 2016 Jess!
