Music & Words

Indie music blog. Their music, our words, in perfect harmony.

#MusicMonday with Heather

I hit shuffle on my ipod.  The first artist to play?  Kacey Musgraves.  The second?  Metallica. To say that my musical taste is eclectic, is kind.  To say that it’s schizophrenic, is accurate. So, if your like me and your fave genre of music is “Amazing” then check out these artists for #MusicMonday.
