connect playlist

A music playlist that really connects

Can anything be more important than connecting—with people, with places, with emotions, with memories and with feelings? (Apart from Leeds United getting back into the Premier League after fifteen long years in the doldrums, obvs. Oh… and treating the planet with a bit more care.) I hope you connect with this music. Click on individual songs, or listen to the entire playlist on Spotify.… Read more →
