Lately I’ve been in a domestic mood – making weekly dinner menus, catching up on laundry, decorating with fresh things, lighting candles, baking bread, and the like. I’m just trying to stay afloat when the dreariness outside makes it always feel like just before dawn.
The music that has carried me through this week is a collected mix of female singer/songwriters. I’ve compiled into a playlist the likes of Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Oleta Adams, Regina Spektor, Brandi Carlilse, Erin McKeowin, Lucinda Williams, Lori McKenna, Annie Lennox, India Arie, and Over the Rhine among others. It is a mellow, yet cheerful mix that makes me feel cozy and warm and motivated.
