Favorite Albums of 2016

November 30, 2016

The end of the year becomes a time of reflection for me.  I am very grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way this year and all that I have accomplished.  I couldn't have done it without all of your support.  I released almost 20 songs, collaborated with many inspirational artists, had the honor of being featuring in Vogue and performed at Brooklyn Bowl, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival and more.  I am inspired everyday by all of the incredible music in the world.  Every year I create a list of my favorite albums and include them on a Spotify playlist.  See below for a list of 100 of my favorite albums released in 2016 (in no particular order).  The Spotify Playlist includes these albums and more.  Click HERE to listen.  Enjoy!
