This week we are taking a look at some peaceful music, not based around a single genre. There is a mix of some interesting covers and original compositions by a variety of different artists. These pieces will hopefully make you relaxed and peaceful, enjoy!
Up first on today’s post is French Pianist Mauvais Roger. Strangely, I could find barely anything about this artist’s background, there was nothing on Spotify or around their YouTube posts. However, have a listen to these pieces below, they are beautiful and so simple – perfect for putting your mind at ease.

The next artist is Czarina Frost, they are an instrumental duo made up of Producer and Guitarist Dillan Witherow. As you will hear in the examples below, they focus on peaceful acoustic guitar and folk music.

The last artist for this week is one of my personal favourites, Jose Gonzalez. Jose is a Swedish indie folk singer-songwriter and guitarist from Gothenburg and is also a member of the band Junip, along with Tobias Winterkorn- check them out if you like his style of music. One side note, his music was used extensively in the film, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, definitely give the film a watch if you haven’t seen it!
