Songs You Should Hear… from UMC Contributor Jenna Rose!

Hey, everyone! Gerard here. I’m up in Bethlehem, PA (the cradle of UMC’s very existence) for Musikfest, the nation’s largest free, non-gated music festival. I’m throwing it back with my northern work family and pitching in with this year’s festival, which means you’re going to see some guest contributions here over the next week and a half.

That includes next week’s UMC20, curated by our very own UMC Contributor Jenna Rose! But… before we get there, Jenna is popping in to give you all a little preview with this week’s Songs You Should Hear.

Get ready for a whole lot more where this came from next week. In the meantime, I’ll let Jenna take it from here with her picks!

I ask out of genuine concern, because I did not have to look far into the submission form to find three songs about breakups and their aftermath for this week’s Songs You Should Hear. While each one is sonically different, they share a common thread: love has a dark side, and some of us handle its charismatic embrace better than others.
