Unknown Artists: Marah In the Mainsail + Sara Watkins

I'm always looking for new music because to be completely honest, if I'm in my house, I'm probably listening to music and that calls for new finds on a daily basis so I don't get tired of it. :) Music is something that calms me down and brings out my true emotions. Most nights before I go to bed, I plug my Altec headphones into my iPhone and shuffle through my most recent music.

This week, I have a new favorite artist and a long-time favorite artist to share with you. First is Marah and the Mainsail. Madeline told me about them when I asked for music recommendations on my Facebook page last week and they're fabulous. Their two singles, "The Traveling Man" and "Criminal" are available for whatever you're willing to pay so check that out!

I'm also loving Sara Watkins more everyday. She's not an unknown artist at all but you probably wouldn't know she was the singer for Nickel Creek. Now she has two of her own records out and I have listened to them both so many times in the past month. Her voice and talent on the violin draw me in.


  1. I know what you mean about getting tired of music... When I find a new artist that I love, I listen to it so much that I get burned out on it pretty quickly... A couple of my favorite unknown artists are Aaron David, Anthem Lights, FM Static and Abandon :)

  2. I like The Traveling Man. When I want to find some new music and inspiration I always go to youtube. It gives me some suggestions which usually hit the spot.

  3. I'm extremely inspired with your writing talents and also with the structure in your weblog. Is that this a paid subject or did you customize it your self? Anyway keep up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to peer a nice weblog like this one today..
