One of my favorite things to do is look through the musical.ly or youtube apps and find low-key, really good songs. I type in the lyrics that musical.ly reveals and find what I’m looking for.
My latest discovery is Tatiana Manaois. Don’t ask me how to pronounce her last name, I have no clue (If you’re reading this, Tatiana, I’m sorry).
Tatiana is a youtube artist that made her way to musical.ly with songs like “Beauty Sings” and “Helplessly”. Goods songs. I recommend.
She has a handful of original songs that are, in fact, iTunes downloadable. Each of which, I enjoy.
Her songs include:
(There’s a lot more)
And she also has quite a few covers to check out.
Tatiana has a nice sound to me, and I can’t help but listen to her songs on repeat all day when I find a new one.
If you’re looking for a new artist to obsess over, I’ll leave her channel link below.

I’ve always been a firm believer that music can heal, change a mood, and better even the worst of situations.
With that being said, the current song in the presence of my headphones if “Weight of the World” feat. Blaque Keyz, one of the fourteen songs on Jon Bellion’s album The Human Condition.
This song hits me hard. It’s hard to think sometimes that those who you look up to go through rough times too. I idolize Jon Bellion. I saw him as invincible, untouchable even. I never would’ve thought that this successful person could feel as alone as I do writing this.
It didn’t cross my mind that I would have a connection deeper than “I love your music, you inspire me to want to write music”. I never expected that he too has had a battle with demons, and almost lost. I would’ve never guessed that he thought (or even still sometimes thinks) that the world would be improved without his life.
So, this one is for you, Mr. Bellion.
Because of you, I do not feel so alone.
And to you, dear reader,
You are smart.
You are important.
You will do great things.
And I am thankful for you.
