Whew! That’s a lot of music. Considering it takes months (if not a full year) to complete a book from the rough draft to the final editor supervised revision, it’s understandable. Got to have something to keep the mind and Muse stimulated while cranking out the pages.
I hope you find a few things on this list you enjoy. I’m always on the look out for new music, so if you have a fave that isn’t on here, let me know. It may just find its way into the next list. ;)
