This time of year is a classic for deep reflection, self improvement and new year resolutions. Thats all good but by mid month we can often be left feeling a little deflated and self deprecating, so forget tons of resolutions that simply aren’t you, we all know the only real uplifter lies in music so we’ve put together some tracks that each of us finds uplifting for January.
