Today's world often feels hectic and overwhelming. Current events and events in our own lives are often understood through the music that reminds us of these moments and the music that gets us through them. Declaration of Indie-pendence features indie, alternative, alt. pop, and some swing house music that remind me of certain events going on in the world, events closer to home in my life, or I am happy to take requests and make playlists for the life events of my listeners. Themes could include political candidate rally songs, songs that talk about nature and climate change, or just big moments to celebrate like someones wedding. Everyone has their own Indie-pendent experience with events but music can be universal and uniting.
