JesusWired Contributors’ 2020 Top Picks

Well no one saw 2020 coming did they? So much for all those people with 2020 vision towards the end of 2019! I guess what they say is true, hindsight really is 2020! Joking aside, 2020 was a really rough year for the whole world due to the coronavirus epidemic, with musicians particularly affected in terms of their livelihoods. Despite their struggles though, musicians didn’t concede defeat and released what felt like a tidal wave of strong music.
