2017 Year In Review

Recently, Spotify presented me with a playlist of my top 100 songs of 2017.  As I listened through it, I realized that it was a journey of all of the amazing projects I had the chance to work on throughout the year.  I decided to pull some of my favorite works, as well as adding in some from Soundcloud and Youtube, and put together this end of year review.  Most of these are not my original compositions, but instead are songs that were used in the productions or some that just inspired my design.  I hope you have just as much fun listening as I did!
