Soundigest Readers,

screen-shot-2016-12-23-at-3-19-25-pmThank you so much for taking the time to visit our site and reading through our content over the past six months. Since last March, when the idea for this website first came about, the goal was to create an online community of live music lovers. Not only have we done that, but we have also created a network of talented writers, musicians and friends. We are so proud of the work we’ve put into this website so far and the growth that is yet to come.

We would like to wish each and every one of you a wonderful holiday and a happy and healthy New Year. To top the year off, we have included each of our lists of top albums and songs from 2016. Off we go to an even bigger and brighter year ahead!

Always,

The Soundigest Team
