After a long day what better way to relax than by listening to some of the world’s greatest independent acoustic songs.
I’ve spent many hours compiling a wide range of tracks from around the globe, everything from Jazz to Folk. I hope you enjoy the list!
Music is a big part of our daily lives. It’s everywhere in every kind of different way. Whether you’re listening to a song in the background while working, on your way to work or simply chilling at home.
But how often do we select the artist who is behind the music? Since we spend so much time listening to music (especially when commuting), I want us to make it count and listen to something new and awesome by supporting independent artists from around the world!
The world is full of artists. And there are just as many styles of music. It’s one of the greatest things about living right now — especially with how internet-connected we all are. I love when I hear a new song on Spotify and go to the artist page and discover they have another album that’s completely different but just as amazing.
The independent music industry needs our support now. Listen to our entire Spotify playlist, or scroll down the page to listen to each artist individually.

As mentioned by the artist:
“Toxic is a deep title, mixing passion, love and nostalgia. it’s living poetry, where each moment encapsulates the swirling emotions of a passionate story. A relationship that undoubtedly reminds us of the work “Jeux d’Enfants” which is a work of art I’ve done for a previous art project. Feel free to listen to this beautiful acoustic song made with heart!”SÉBASTIEN BLUM
