Jams & Joints #2

Another Ten Pack of Tunes

We've got another Spotify playlist for ya, a ten pack of tunes to help you cruise into the weekend and get through to the next. This one's called "Have a Relax" and it's packed with country funk joints put together by our friend and Portland-based musician Jeffrey Silverstein (you can check out his own sweet tunes here).
