With Christmas fast approaching and the New Year just around the corner I felt now would be a good time to countdown my top 4 albums that were released in 2016.
The past year has seen some absolute gems released from the likes of Little Mix, Olly Murs, Rolling Stones, and Emili Sande, but my personal favourite three albums of the year are as follows;
4: DNCE-Self Titled.
After hearing tracks ‘Cake By The Ocean’, and ‘Toothbrush’ I was really excited for Joe Jonas’ rock/pop group DNCE to release their debut album, and I was not disappointed. The self-titled LP is full of fantastic tracks and is a great feel good album.
3: Charles Kelley-Driver.
I am a huge fan of Lady Antebellum and I am in love with lead singer Charles Kelley’s debut solo album ‘Driver’. It has a slightly different vibe to Lady A’s music and it’s not quite as country, but it is so good.
2: Nick Jonas-Last Year Was Complicated.
I am in love with Nick Jonas’ album from this year. The LP is like a diary put to song and it is so personal and deep. I really think it deserved to be nominated for a Grammy award. Not only are Nick’s vocals insane but the depth of the songs are on another level.
1: Ward Thomas-Cartwheels.
My favourite album of 2016 is without doubt Ward Thomas’ record breaking number 1 release ‘Cartwheels’. The duo became the first ever British country act to score a number 1 LP in the official UK charts and it is no surprise that the record did so well. The girls’ vocal harmonies are off the scale and the songs are so beautifully written. It’s an easy pick for my number 1 album of 2016.
