Every Friday night, RVA Mag brings you a playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.
This week’s comes to us from Anneliese Grant, former vocalist for The Folly and one-half of house music duo Museum District. Under the name Anneliese, she recently released her fourth solo EP, Stay Awhile. She tells RVA Mag that this playlist of the same name is intended to evoke a similar musical mood as the one captured by the EP.
“The Stay Awhile playlist is made of songs that have brought me comfort through the different phases of my life, and I hope they’ll do the same for listeners,” Anneliese said. “In the vein of my new Stay Awhile, EP it’s music to kick back and relax with. Sit in the sunshine, smile, let yourself feel good. From the beloved Bill Withers and John Prine to Tennis, Etta James, Jim Croce, and Black Pumas, there’s a bit of it all – 30 songs to soothe you.”
At a time like this, we could all use a bit more soothing. So kick back and stay awhile, Virginia.
