In the spring of 2013, Ken was finishing up with The Music Moms and we finally got to talking about doing a little music blog on the side on our own. It's become a nice little consistent project for both of us (even if Ken is really pulling the majority of the weight), and we appear to have a nice little dedicated group of readers so far. We really enjoy doing it and we hope you enjoy it, too!
We officially launched three years ago at some point last week. We thought it would be fun to make a quick mix of ten songs each of us found and love directly because of the blog. Give us feedback on some of your favorites - maybe if we get enough, we can have a new mix next week!
Now, just to get @ifitstooloud on Twitter for good... Until then, here's the tracklisting:
