I tried to stick with artist that have free albums available to Amazon Prime members. It was hard though because I could easily add another 30 artist to this list but this is definitely a great start!

How to Find These Albums:
If you’re a Prime member just hop on Amazon search for the album, add it to your library and you’re good to go! If there was an album that I just HAD to add to the list but is not a free option for Prime members I made note of it next to the album. If you’re not a Prime member you should be able to find most of these artist on Spotify.


Let’s Listen To A Few Of The Artist:
Promise you each album and artist on this list is worth checking out but I had to pick a couple to share within this post, mainly artist we’ve seen in concert.
Seriously thought don’t stop at the videos I’m sharing. You’ll want to give the other artist in the playlist a listen as well


Y’all this is live! She’s one talented lady. I’ve listened this this album countless times and it still gives me chills. I’m chomping at the bit for her to come out with another album! IT’S TIME LONDON!


Oh Paolo sweet sweet Paolo. Y’all may have heard me talk about him before because I honestly can’t get enough of his soulful voice and the way he connects with his music…..POWER!
We saw him a few years back in a small venue and it’s still my most favorite concert.

We’ve been lucky enough to see Sarah in concert a few times (both small venues which are my fave). She’s like Paolo in the way she feels what she’s singing. You can see it all over her body and hear it in her voice.

Another artist we’ve seen in concert and let me tell his voice is even more amazing live if that’s possible. I could listen to him sing the phone book,.

I fell in love with their music first (this is the song that hooked me) but soon after fell in love with personalities. These two can put on a show and love to tell a good story!
If you have time you have to watch their live concert at Lincoln Theater concert.

Now don’t stop here! Go check out the other artist!

If you find some new favorites come back and let me know! I would love to hear who you enjoyed!
Also if you liked this post and want to see more of our favorite artist let me know! I can post a Volume 2 playlist because I left tons out!



  • Haley Mills - Oh man you have some good stuff here, and a lot I haven’t heard yet, so I’ve added all of them to Spotify (people can go there to get the ones that aren’t on Prime, they just can’t download them. Can be streamed tho).

    Have you heard Nate Rateliff’s new album? Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats. It’s one of my favorites. Also the one I snapchatted you the other day–Glen Hansard, Didn’t He Ramble (I think I told you the title track, not the album name)ReplyCancel
