Summer Playlist 2014

Since we’re always so serious as artists, I thought it would be fun to loosen up & create a quarterly playlist depending on the season we’re currently in. I asked the first round of artists from She is Sure to post their favorite summer songs that get them excited to create new work and just have a great time! I hope some of these songs speak to you & inspire you as well!
