Fuel Your Creativity | March’s MEL-low Tunage Playlist

Note from Lauren {LAC} James: I am beyond PUMPED about this new series. My dear, dear friend agreed to help me out with project, and she has a wonderful ear for music. I don’t know about y’all, but for me music has been a huge part of my life from the very beginning. My parents have always listened to, taught, and encouraged a love of music. I see the same qualities in Mel with her children, who are my g-babies (god-children).

A few summers ago, Mel and I drove from Anderson, SC to Denver, Colorado in my little passat for two nights of The Avett Brothers at Red Rocks. There’s not many people I could spend 48 hours in a car with, and it was by far one of the best trips EVER. I trip of laughter and music and making memories.

So that said, Mel will be putting together a playlist for everyone at the beginning of each month to get your creative juices flowing. Whether you are sitting at a desk job, crafting your craft, cleaning your house, or traveling across country by plane or car – this playlist will inspire you this month!

Ok, I’m done rambling…here’s a note from Mel(issa). 🙂 Links to the playlist and free printable at the end of post!! ENJOY! Would love to know what y’all think, so please leave commentary if you’re feeling froggy!

Mel: In thinking of what my first playlist should be, I went to my playlist I listen to everyday at work – aptly titled “Tunage”. I chose 31 songs to give an idea of what I literally listen to everyday. These are some of my favorite artists…long time favorites like The Avett Brothers and John Prine. Some newer favorites like Brandi Carlile and Rayland Baxter as well. The songs on this playlist are great, laid back, chill songs that make me smile and dance while working the day away.
