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!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
