Summer Listening List

Taking the time to tune in...

It is perhaps that time in the holiday where we have had some quality rest time, and are now looking to refill our creative pockets. Inspiration tends to present itself in unexpected places, when we operate outside our usual realms.

Below is a vast list of listening recommendations from our Tessuti team, including memorable song lyrics, moving albums, and thoroughly entertaining podcasts...
