January 2018 Playlist

I've been telling myself for years that every January will be "the start of a good year" for me. I haven't been too lucky. But if 2018 continues on the way this month has been going, it just might be. How did I wake up and get here? How did you get to where you are now? This month has been a time for me to refocus. These tunes have been getting me through job interviews and aided me in goal-setting. Keep it up kid.

September 2017 Playlist: Reset

3 years ago I started making playlists for friends who moved away for uni. Now I've found myself looking for new platforms to share music I've been listening to. Recently, I received an email from a listener thanking me for putting my monthly tunes together. She's a complete stranger but her kind words really resonated with me. I've put these playlists together for friends and for work. Now I've finally recognised that the memories tagged by these sounds will always be there. I am back in Canada after a year of studying abroad in England, and the people I've met and experiences I've had are attached to these songs, and I've finally realised how important this is. Again, I've found myself at another milestone in my life, and looking back at these playlists I'm so happy to have documented them. In a few months, I start a new adventure in a new city. 

I've officially moved my playlists from 8tracks to Spotify for accessibility reasons. Although Spotify does not have some artists I'd like to feature, it will make it easier for international listeners to have a go. If an artists is too small, I'll be sure to feature them in other ways. So to my friends, family, and strangers who've been listening for a while, I just wanted to say thanks. I am not only doing this for you, but I am also doing this for myself. More content to come soon. 

Your friend,

Jon
