5 Artists That Most People Don't Listen To But Should

There are so many music artists around the world whether they are a solo artist or are involved in a band, that it's nearly impossible to listen to everyone, or know that everyone exists. It's just plain difficult. That's why "Spotify", "Pandora", and "YouTube" exist, but even then it's hard to listen to every single artist out there. We as a society are sucked into the most popular music on the radio and that's as far as we all go, but there are so many artists around that don't get a chance to have their song be heard by that many people on that medium. So here's five artists that no one listens to, but really should. Many of these have similar styles, some you may have heard of but not a lot of, and all will amaze you.

1. Bon Iver

Listen. OK. If you could just take an hour, or two let's be honest here, get on "Spotify", follow his "22, A Million" album, you'll literally be obsessed within minutes. It's so weird and different but has true meaning and soul behind each lyric. You could also hate his music, but you can't get away from it. If you have no idea who he is, he is the person who originally sand "Skinny Love". That should do it for you. Like I said, his songs are pretty strange, have a different beat to them then you're probably used to, but they will seriously calm you down from a bad day.

2. 3LW/Adrienne Bailon(Houghton)

So most of you probably know who Adrienne Bailon is, AKA Chanel (Chuchi) from "The Cheetah Girls" or the daytime talk show "The Real". But little do you know, she was also in the girl group "3LW (3 Little Women)". This group was full of the R&B/pop style that everyone loves. All of the songs were so fun and catchy and certainly songs you should listen to with your girls. The other thing is, is that Adrienne has songs of her own. Although there's not many of them, the songs that she does have released are amazing and are literally great to sing to yourself. I highly recommend "Don't Give Up On Us". Get it girl.

3. Ingrid Michaelson

I personally do not understand why more people do not know about Ingrid Michaelson. Especially those who take regular modern/contemporary modern dance classes. Every single song by her has such a "feel good" vibe to it and it's irresistable. If you haven't heard any of her songs, if anyone from this list, please look her up.

4. Sleeping At Last

"Sleeping At Last" is a lot like Ingrid Michaelson. Their songs are very feel good, lovey, and honestly just stunning and beautiful to listen to. Though they have many albums full of amazing music, they go along the same lines as Bon Iver, in being unheard. They have a lot of songs that have been played on "The Twilight Saga" and danced to on "So You Think You Can Dance". The "Atlas" album series is the best.

5. Bridget Mendler

You'll probably recognize this name from The Disney Channel series "Good Luck Charlie" or the Disney Channel Original Movie "Lemonade Mouth". Many agree that Disney makes a lot of their workers sing regardless if they actually can or not. The thing is, is this girl can actually sing. Like for real. Her new EP "Nemesis" is full of perfect songs to dance around to, sing to, and definitely the type of music you listen to while scrolling through Tumblr. Go take a listen.

These are just five amazing unheard artists out of the world. I encourage you to go onto whatever app you have and go searching for music that no one has heard of and get your friends obsessed. The more people to hear amazing and beautiful unheard music will make the world go around! Get listening!

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
