I haven’t been keeping up with the music scene a lot lately during the second half of the year, but there are a number of artists I’m thankful for this year for various reasons. The music industry has gotten tougher and it seems that the truly talented artists often do not get the recognition that they deserved. The following is a personal Thank you from me to the artists listened below. There’s probably a ton of more artists I could mention, this is like an incomplete acceptance speech list, but these are the ones that come top of my mind this year.
