The Playlist

Today I want to start the month of February with you guys by kicking off a new series on The Stares: The Playlist series. What a lot of people don't know about me is that for a good part of my life now, I've always held a passion for all kinds of music. I've even entertained the idea of DJ'ing for quite some time now (stay tuned). It never really occurred to me to share this part of myself with you all on the blog because I was more concerned with the content staying mainly in the lane of fashion. But then it dawned on me that Taking the Stares goes beyond fashion. It's about people living in their craft and being fearless in sharing it with the world - that includes all artists. Music means all the universes to me so I'm really excited to dive into something new with you all!

Here's how it works:

So every week, I'd like to present you guys with a playlist of 10 - 25 songs that I've been listening to throughout the week. The playlist will consist of a variety of genres since I am a lover of all music (although, you will probably never see a country song on a playlist). They won't always be new songs, and they won't all be from signed artists. I'll pull music from both my iTunes library and my Soundcloud page, so it'll be a solid mix of old and new songs. If I've got an entire album or  LP/EP on my mind, I'll share that at the end of the post. I'll make sure to add links in the song names so you can listen to it immediately!

Today I've got a nice, beefy playlist of 25 songs to share with you guys. Listen & enjoy!
