Here is the second half of my list of influential albums!
6. Rend Collective, Campfire (2013)
You can’t work at a Bible camp and not get addicted to Rend Collective. Although I’ve only been listening to them for a few months, their folksy worship has more than captured my heart. And, seriously, how cool is it that they recorded an entire album around a campfire?
7. The Head and the Heart, self titled album (2010)
These guys were my foray into the indie-folk genera. I heard “Rivers and Roads” and fell imedietly, hopelessly in love. Of both their albums, there’s not a song I don’t like.
8. Jenny & Tyler, Faint Not (2010)
I discovered this husband and wife duo in my sophomore year of college through an ad in my Facebook sidebar. Normally, I ignore those ads, but something made me click. And, oh boy, I’m so happy I did. Jenny & Tyler’s music is incredibly encouraging has seen me through some of the darkest times of my life (thus far).
9. Needtobreathe, The Reckoning (2011)
Needtobreathe was on my iPod for years before I actually touched them. And, when I finally did, I fell hard. It was one of those, “Where have you been my whole life?” moments. Although all their albums are fantastic, I decided to go with The Reckoning because it was the first one I listened to and has some of my favorite tracks.
10. Cloud Cult, Unplug (2014)
Cloud Cult is another one of my recent obsessions. They did an acoustic show at my school last Spring and I’ve been listening to them ever since. Their music has a lot of variety, but my favorite is definitely their acoustic album. When this song, “Pretty Voice”, comes on when I’m driving, I will listen to it three times in a row just because I’m so obsessed with it.
And that concludes my list of music albums that have impacted my life! Don’t forget to check out the first half of the list.
