Donovan Woods “I Ain’t Ever Loved No One”

A beautifully, heartbreaking song.

Listen 2

Here’s some new tunes I came across this past week that I recommend checking out.

A very different sound from the lads of Kodaline. It’s more pop-leaning, instead of their usual rock sound. I’m partial to the rock, but I still like this.

Olly Alexander has one of the sexiest voices out there today.

Some Latin flair from the vocal genius.

I wish I was strong enough to say these words to a few people in my life.

Slowing things down a bit with this lovely, reflective track by England’s Lucy Rose.

A fun, upbeat, rock jam from the English singer-songwriter.

 

Sam Brookes “James”

Sharing this beautiful song for my beautiful nephew James, who turns one today!

Who is Austin Basham?

I listened to this EP on a random whim just now and holy shit this is the most breath-taking, mesmerizing collection of songs I’ve heard in the singer-songwriter genre (or in any genre) in a LONG time. I literally clapped after each song ended. Who is Austin Basham? Well, that’s something I intend to find out.

Aisha Badru “Waiting Around (Acoustic)”

WARNING: If you’re single (and, like me, are going to turn 32 in less than 2 weeks), and it’s Valentine’s Day and all that, then don’t listen to this song. Because while it’s absolutely gorgeous, it WILL make you cry.

 

Marc Cohn “Hold On For Me”

I just love this man’s music.

The Acoustic Current

Happy Friday!!!

I may have mentioned it somewhere on this blog before but I’ve always had a thing for musicians of the singer-songwriter variety and I’ve included a bunch of them on Ashesmusicnotes. That being said, I decided to create a separate, niche blog just for acoustic music titled, naturally, The Acoustic Current. So moving forward I’ll probably just feature the singer-songwriters on that platform unless there is a song┬áso mind-blowing I feel the urge to post about it on both of my blogs. Just wanted that noted for future reference.

Birdy & RHODES “Let It All Go”

Sonic perfection.

Greg Holden “Hold On Tight”

Uplifting and moving, Greg Holden tugs at the emotions with this video and song. While I’m not 100% sure where I stand on the idea of karma, it’s nice to think about.
