16 Underrated Bands You Should Listen to This Summer

Great artists with little to no recognition to give a listen to this summer.

16 Underrated Bands You Should Listen to This Summer

I have come to find something to be true in life. Every band or solo musician I love becomes ridiculously famous within a year of me discovering them. Among these have been the Jonas Brothers, Ed Sheeran, Vance Joy, and Judah & The Lion. Because of this, here are some amazing musicians that deserve a good listen. Who knows, maybe they'll be super famous by next year as well!

1) A.A. Bondy: Alternative with a softer approach.

2) Aaron Parker: Good ole country artist who reminds me of a lot of the other country music that's out right now (but possibly a bit better).

3) Amy Stroup: One of the best female singer/songwriter artists I've ever listened to. Her voice is so pure and her songs are absolutely beautiful. Some of them have been featured on the show One Tree Hill.

4) Andrew Paul Woodworth: He's a good singer/songwriter artist who can turn "Fight For Your Right" by Beastie Boys into a beautiful acoustic ballad.

5) Andrew St. James: Another softer alternative artist who deserves a lot more recognition than he is given.

6) Better Than Ezra: A great rock band with a super catchy sound.

7) Between The Trees: Okay so this band has already broken up but they never got the recognition they deserved. They're indie/alternative but their songs have the most beautiful lyrics I've ever listened to. They're raw and powerful and deserve a listen.

8) Birdy: Another great singer/songwriter artist who does beautiful covers of popular songs. Her cover of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" is amazing.

9) Brian Littrell: Backstreet Brian was known for his Backstreet Boys days, however not many people know that he did a great job in the Christian music industry. He wrote some amazing songs that were great musically and lyrically. Just give it a try.

10) Butterfly Boucher: This band is a good alt artist to listen to on a nice summer day.

11) Cami Bradley: Former America's Got Talent star Cami Bradley has been forgotten with most other AGT stars. She's a great pop singer with a soft voice that can make her a good listen for anyone.

12) Candythief: Another good singer/songwriter band for the mellow days.

13) Charlie Oxford: He's an awesome pop artist but he carries a kind of jazz or R&B sound to it, I can't detect which. It works though, like really.

14) Daughter: My absolute favorite when it comes to singer/songwriter music. Her songs evoke such emotion and they carry so much depth. "Landfill" is a song that still just tears at my heart.

15) SHoTA: SHoTA is a more pop artist and he's really talented. I see him going very far in his music career.

16) Wilderness of Tekoa: An indie band that is super awesome. Listen to "Your Place in the Ground." It's amazing.

Most of these artists can be found on the website NoiseTrade.com. Add them to your list for summer listening. Enjoy!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
