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.

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 🙂
