Folk - some of the best examples of songwriting I know.
As the name of the genre suggests, folk music stems out of culture and tradition, often used to identify a specific group of people. Fast forward a couple hundred years and we are introduced to the magical work of #IndieFolk, with the help of urban modernisation and commercialism of course!
There’s just something so magical about this genre - how the sincerity and essence of the style is easily captured through a simple setup of just the guitar and voice. Stripped away from all the pyrotechnics which Pop music typically offers, Indie Folk draws our attention to its captivating lyrics, each ladened with meaning and poise and picked out ever so carefully.
Even greater are its constant reminders for us to take things easy and not let the urbanisation of life get the better of us.
Folk music teach us the truest lessons of family, love and life, which is very fitting as the year comes to a close and the festive season approaches us.

Ever wondered how films would turn out without any sort of background music? Would be awfully different huh!
Cinematic (or Film) music is one of my favourite genres purely because it has the capacity to paint picturesque cinematographic landscapes through sound. It never fails to amaze me how something so aural could transcend our ears with such powerful visual elements.
With our AI, we have curated a cinematic music playlist to provide you with the perfect refuge of sound, just enough to invoke your emotions and imagination.
My favourite in this playlist is Periculum by Kai Engel. I’m not sure if it was because it was raining whilst I was putting this together but this one gave me massive feels.
P.S. Best recommended with a good book.
