Do you like to listen to music when you’re making and creating? I absolutely do (as well as podcasts, but perhaps I’ll save those for another post). I favour music of the folky, jangley, banjo-y kind, with the occasional slightly more upbeat track thrown in. I’ve put together a Spotify playlist of songs by some of my favourite artists, including Laura Marling, Josh Pyke, Angus and Julia Stone and The Paper Kites. This music helps to put me in a creative place, whether it’s because of the imagery evoked by the lyrics, or simply the sounds themselves filling my mind and distracting me from other thoughts. Bliss!
Have a listen and let me know if this playlist helps you feel creative. Or, tell me what music do you like to listen to when you’re creating?
