As warmer weather quickly approaches us, travel plans start to take over. Umbrella drink wishes and palm tree dreams will run rampant until we give into our wanderlust. Now, as a Charlestonian it’s easy to feel vacation-type of feelings frequently; however, everyone needs to get away from their day-to-day routine. Personally, after my suitcase is packed and my auto email response is on, I make sure I have a playlist to take along on my travels. Now, I’ve made playlists/mixtapes/burned CDs for years to make sure I have the perfect set of tunes. I like to pride myself on my careful selection process and making sure each song captures the appropriate vacation vibes.
As a local music lover and supporter, I felt it my duty to share with you all some of my favorite local songs that could work for a road trips to Nashville, flights to remote locations, and even for the days you need to zone out from the ordinary. There’s funk, punk, and even a lady with a washboard. However you choose to break out from your regular routine may it be a scheduled vacation or just a personal day on Folly Beach, make sure you bring music along that makes the adventure that much sweeter.
