Kygo “Firestone” f/ Conrad

Earlier today, I included Kygo in my Artists To Watch for 2015 list. But this song is worthy of it’s own post. Gorgeous, melodic original music from the future superstar. Well, I obviously can’t predict the future but I believe big things are in store for him in 2015.

If I were a betting woman, I’d bet on these artists to kick some serious ass in the music arena next year.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich “Shine” (Kygo Remix)

“It makes me want to go frolic in a forest.” = Best. Comment. Ever.

Ben is a singer-songwriter I’ve been following for a while and Kygo is an up and coming producer who’s been creating some music magic. That’s a winning combination if you ask me 🙂
