Tune in Tuesday

Tune in Tuesday

This weekly meme is hosted by Ginger at GReads and is meant to showcase another passion: music. Each week you can post an old or new song so that it gains more interest or is discovered by new ears. So let's help Ginger spread our love of music. Oh and don't forget to submit a link to your post over on Ginger’s site by clicking on the banner.

Welcome to The International Edition of Tune in Tuesday.  I wanted to focus on music and artists that you quite possibly have never heard of.  I’m always on a quest to discover new sounds.  One of the best ways I’ve found to satisfy that need is by venturing outside of my backyard and into the backyard of groups on the other side of the pond, or equator, or planet, etc.  I hope you enjoy some of the discoveries I've made over the years.
