Sing me a song, you’re a singer-songwriter-man, man.

Ok, so I’ve just put together another mix (the previous one is a few posts back). This one is a bit different than the first, maybe a bit more ‘accessible’. Whatever. I found myself listening to a few of these tracks recently, and like the first mix, found some more and some more and the next thing you know I’ve got a playlist of 20 or so songs. Into Soundtrack they go… fade this, truncate that and there you have it. A nice little mix for you to gaze your ears upon. No particular story to go with this one (unlike the Alles mix), if there’s a common thread, most of the musicians here would fall into the Singer/Songwriter category. But who cares for categories. Hope you enjoy.
