Some of you know that one of my hobbies is trying to discover new music that doesn’t get heard on the radio. I really enjoy sharing new music finds with others, some of the best music isn’t what you hear getting played on radio stations today. For that reason, I’ve put together a list of some of the songs I’ll be listening to this summer, as well as a link so you can hear it for yourself.

I’ve tried to divide this list up into three sections – Praise and Worship, Alternative, and Hip-Hop. There should be something for everyone. This by no means is an extensive list, and I tried not to repeat the same artist more than once (for those that are consider them my favorites). It is safe to assume that if I’ve put them on this list, I’d recommend buying the entire album.

In no particular order, here are the songs I’ll be listening to this summer:

Praise and Worship

  • Ascend the Hill – How Great Thou Art

Whenever this song goes into the final verse I am tempted to put my hands up and sing at the top of my lungs.

  • Trip Lee – No Worries (Beatles Remix)
