On today’s show I’m playing some of my favorite tracks from 2020. For one reason or another, these are the ones that stood out. These artists were my friends through quarantine. They helped me escape from feeling trapped in my house and they made 2020 bearable.
I personally supported every artist on this list by buying their music, merch or both in 2020. I hope that if you are able, you will find at least one artist in this mix (or more) and show your support as well. It’s been a tough year for artists, especially those that rely on income from touring.
