Mostly MN Music with Anna Graves

For many reasons, today felt like a bonus day and the bonus got better with an in-studio chat and performance with Anna Graves. Anna has signed with a major label and is working on her debut album. Her music is thoughtful and born from authentic discovery. She somehow creates a nihilism that is freeing and optimistic – a message that says life goes on and death will come but you are free to choose to enjoy yourself on the ride. Her voice is gorgeous and I can’t wait for the album to come out.

Sadly, I still can’t record the show as it turns out the station shuts down when you try to archive. But you can check out the aspirational playlist on Spotify (big thanks to everyone for recommendations!) and check the list of songs actually played below. (I didn’t get to as many as I had hoped because Anna was an awesome last minute addition.)
