Top 10 Albums of 2021
Last year, for the 6th consecutive year, I did my traditional #countdown of the #albums that shaped my year and filled me with inspiration and creativity to go through the awful and most beautiful parts of it.
2021 was an intense year. A part of me keeps telling me I have lived the most beautiful, exciting and fulfilling moments in a while over the course of this year, but the other side of my brain can’t stop thinking of how this year has been the most scary, challenging and full of uncertainty I’ve lived so far. But here I am, embracing both sides of it and reflecting on how music helped me to keep on going, to keep pushing and to be where I am right now. These are the records I enjoyed the most in 2021...
