If you’ve checked out our new holiday video, you can’t help but rock out to the music, a supercatchy song called “Free My Mind” written and performed by Nashville-based musician Katie Herzig. A friend sent Katie’s MP3 to Madewell HQ and we were instantly smitten. Check it out and you’ll see what we mean.

Since we’re in a holiday mood, we asked her what she’ll be listening to this season and—just like her music—her playlist is equal parts dreamy and poppy (with some old favorites thrown in). Have a listen.
