We’re so happy you’ve found our site. While we’re primarily a podcast focusing on the memories we make as we discover new music, we want this space to expand upon the conversations we have with our guests. This is a chance to dig deep into why we love, hate, and appreciate certain songs.
Sure, there’s a *lot* of music out there today, and it’s more accessible than ever…which can feel overwhelming.

Peace and love,
Creator + Host of Play It Back
