The Chosen Ones are the bands/artists that I like most at the moment. Some of them are old favourites that I never get tired of (Jewel, Van Morrison, The Waifs, George). Others are more recent discoveries (Band of Horses, The National, Okkervil River).

In the future I will post more info on each of these artists, but for now, I’ve chosen my favourite track from each artist for your listening pleasure – enjoy!
