I shared some of the authors I’ve been reading in 2015 last week. Now for some music! I love all kinds of music, but these artists especially caught my attention. Who were you listening to in 2015? Leave a comment and share the joy!

St. Paul and the Broken Bones
Paul Janeway is an R&B force of nature. Check out their Tiny Desk concert on NPR

Shakey Graves
Another great singer songwriter talent out of my previous hometown, Austin, Texas. Here he’s singing “Dearly Departed” in a video filmed in Austin. And before I could post, he did a Tiny Desk concert on NPR.

Cecile McLorin
Fabulous Jazz vocalist. Check out this fun version of “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was” 

Kelley Johnson
I met Kelley when I auditioned for a Seattle jazz vocal group, OffBeats. Little did I know I was meeting one of Seattle’s great jazz vocalists. Do check out her albums. Here’s a taste of “No More Blues”

Bruno Mars
Uptown Funk, which actually came out late in 2014, was my pop music crack candy for 2015. I bet you can’t press this link just once!
