Two Hearts - Cathal Flaherty

This week's track is a little different in that it isn't what you would typically call a sad song - but then not every track on the Music to Grieve To playlist is going to be morose or downbeat.  Tracks make this list because they're great at evoking emotion - the songs on Cathal Flaherty's recent EP The Head & Heart are brilliant at this.

It's a tough topic this week - Alzheimer's disease - I believe we're at the beginning of a massive increase in cases and I suspect we're not really prepared.

Once Upon Impossible - Fiona Joy (Hawkins)

We're currently working with Fiona as part of the promotion of her new project Flow over on the Music to Write An Essay To playlist.  If you're looking for beautiful instrumental music that has been produced to an incredibly high level, we can't recommend this album enough.  Head on over to the track that we're featuring - itself called Flow - and check this beautiful music out.

I do this because I believe music can make the shit times better.  

Henry is a Music to Curator - he curates the Music to Stay Up Late At Night playlist - it's a beautifully put together list - the music is often familiar and yet when you hear something new - it's always great.  But for me - my favorite thing about his list, is the writing.  He writes with such an authentic voice that you can't help but feel as if you're sitting there, next to him...

She's Like the Swallow - Ian Wong

A return to the playlist's roots this week with a stunning solo piece from Canadian pianist Ian Wong.  While sad songs - and by songs I mean tracks with lyrics - can tell a specific story - sometimes you just need an instrumental track to create your own narrative.  Right now it's raining outside, the sky is kinda grey and you know it's cold - there's a general melancholic feel to the world and this track accompanies it perfectly.
