Nina Corcoran’s ‘Best of 2014’ in Music

If there’s anything to be certain of when it comes to music, it’s that you can’t control when it strikes you.

I Guess You Could Say I Enjoyed Some Music in 2014

This year, I’m throwing convention to the wind. I tend to spend too much time deliberating, trying to narrow things down to a set amount of this or that. For 2014, much like any other year, I’m sharing a [very] large collection of what I enjoyed most in the world of music, except these lists […]

Brenton Harris’ ‘Best Of 2013’ In Music

Family aside, music has and always will be my first love and closest friend in this world. It is my voice in the times that I cannot speak and my favourite choice of topic for the times I can. It can take me from the depths of despair to the highest peak of elation and […]
