I'm really, really stoked to be sharing these 5 music spotlights with you all! Be sure to check them out while you're waiting for my first March CTO! 🎧

1. TRANSVIOLET (band)

After obsessing over "Don't Say You Love Me" from my very first Current Track Obsession Volume, I left Transviolet and headed on my merry way to discover more amazing tracks. Well, just a few weeks later the song "Drugs in California" popped up on my Spotify Release Radar playlist and I was thrilled when I found out this was also by Transviolet. I quickly headed over to their artist page to realize that I am no stranger to Transviolet, in fact, I have been listening to this band for well over 6 years. Hits like "Girls Your Age," "Long Shot," and "Kaleidoscopes." What this tells me is I need to be paying way more attention to this group, because I love their style and have for quite some time.

2. Plastic Ferrari - Gregory Dillon (song)

Guys, I'm OBSESSED obsessed with this song. I don't usually select a song out of a playlist to listen to and just hit that shuffle button, but I crave to cruise to this song. And I've come to love it even more after watching it's iconic, 80's inspired music video, which is so ridiculous in such a fabulous way. Steven and I will literally reenact moments from the video when this song comes on in the car, during photoshoots, anywhere. If you haven't brought this song into your life, you need to now!

3. Backyard Boy - Claire Rosinkranz (song)

If you're not listening to this song already, then you're already behind because it is showing up everywhere. Honestly, I've got to tell you I get little hearts that show up figuratively around my head every time I hear a song from my Current Track Obsession playlist playing somewhere else. 🥰 Since Vol 2 of CTO, I have heard Backyard Boy in other people's reels, on an Instagram ad, AND, most notably, a commercial for an upcoming Amazon Prime Original Show! I would definitely make it part of your Spring Playlist!

4. Gracie Abrams - Minor (album)

Another song that never left my brain after I originally listened to it is "21" by Gracie Abrams. The upbeat, catchy track had me hitting repeat over and over. I also had fun creating harmonies to layer, and that's when I know I REALLY like a song. But after about the 20th time of jumping in the car and immediately gravitating for "21", I decided to check out the rest of Gracie Abrams's music. And it is all on point! Gracie's sound is genuine, pure, and soft and the songs she is singing match that exact tone. I highly suggest jumping in the car on a sunny afternoon this spring and just listening to her Minor album from start to finish. You will be living for the place it puts your soul.

5. The Natural Synthetic (artist)

The Natural Synthetic's "Days Like This" is on my most recent Vol. of Current Track Obsession, but I'm already aware that this band is one to watch. A mash-up of artists Ariza and Miette Hope is what forms The Natural Synthetic, two great musicians on their own- but together are magic. The group is pretty new having officially launched their first single "Nervous," which is FABULOUS and actually the first song I heard from The Natural Synthetic, around seven months ago! But dang, the few songs they have out are really unique and achieve an edgy flare and singer/songwriter feel at the same time. Check. Them. Out!
