So, it's been a while (years). How are you? Things have changed, life kicked me hard. But, still... there's music to listen to (and to fall in love with). In fact there's years of stuff to discover and to start with I want to point you toward the melodic pop of Andy Shauf. There's beauty in sadness when it's conjured with minor chords, a lonely voice, and the masterful arrangements of Andy Shauf's.

You'll find all his music on his bandcamp page.
