One for Every Day of the Week: Coffee House Music

Oh, I love music and am a fan of everything from country to violin ensembles. A particular favorite genre of mine is acoustic style. One of my favorite Sirius stations is The Coffee House. For those of you with any interest, here are some are some of my favorite low key cds, one for every day of the week. These are perfect for sitting around with friends (or a loved one) for some chit chat and down time. And when its time to say, hey, lets have a cocktail.

Adele: 19
A torch singer with a cd of beautiful songs including a cover of Bob Dylan. She just won a Grammy so there should be more to come.

Ray Lamontagne: Trouble
One of my favorite cds of all time. His voice is passionate and soulful. I have seen him in concert multiple times and find it hard to believe the voice that comes out of him. Incredible. Listen.

Rachel Yamagata: Happenstance
Beautiful voice and a diverse cd. Listen to Be Be Your Love

Peter Gabriel: Passion: Music from the Last Temptation of Christ Soundtrack
Sexy and lyric free. This music envelopes Passion. Beautiful for the right time.

Buddy Guy and Junior Wells: Alone and Acoustic
Legends of Blues and a great investment. Great songs. Since the day I received it seven years ago, I have never had it out of rotation.

Brett Dennen: So Much More
He is relatively obscure but this cd does not disappoint. Great voice and lyrics.

Elbow: The Seldom Seen Kid
His voice is unique and he has a great ensemble behind him. Listen to One Day Like This.
