Happy Independence Day!

Here’s my annual Summer in the City mixtape, my 6th annual playlist celebrating the sounds of the season. Rather than building a playlist of summertime radio mega-hits, I like to build a fresh mix each year combing songs both new and old!  Perfect for a day by the beach, roadtrips across statelines, or just lounging on your front porch.

The sun is up and the air is sweet and sweaty, so it must be Summer once again.  This year we begin appropriately on a Summer Friday, so to start the season I’ve created my 8th annual “Summer in the City” mixtape!
