Stage with band by Indie Art SouthIndie Art South Set List

This list contains songs selected by readers and me. On my list, I chose songs I like to hear someone sing live. I also created this page so that when I’m outside on the deck, I can just come to this page and click over to my favorites. Now they’re in one place. Hope you like them.

If you have a favorite you want added, just use the contact form on this website to send in the title and artist. Tell us if you want credit for yourself or your website, and we’ll include that info with your permission.

We’ll update this list on a regular basis. Songs are in no particular order. I included well-known brands and some new indie brands.
