Honestly, I am a music lover, and I have a wide variety of music I enjoy and listen to on a daily basis. When I was in middle school I really started exploring the music world and when I did, I went through every music phase under the sun. I've been a Bieber/One Direction fangirl, a hardcore Drake lover, a melancholy Keaton Henson listener, an obscure S. Carey fanatic, and I think I even went through a Dubstep and Yellow Claw phase. Overall though, I would have to say that Sleeping At Last's Atlas album has had the biggest impact on me. I literally know every word and when I do listen to it, it makes me over the moon nostalgic and peaceful. Ryan O'Neal is the lead singer and multi-instrumentalist and I swear his voice is supernatural. It's so unique and surreal sounding and the way he incorporates the instrumental aspect of his music to his lyrics is beautiful to me. I found Sleeping At Last when I first started my music journey and then stopped listening to it for a good number of years after that. I eventually picked it back up around my junior year of high school when I was going through an uber rough patch. The music comforted me, taking me back to simpler and more pure times of my life and it made me feel like I was running away from my current mess of a life even though my life was still there and as messy as before I put my earbuds in. I still listen to this specific album on occasion or when I need a little pick-me-up, and I have no doubt that this album will continue to be a lifelong favorite of mine.
