So, I got this record from my friend Daniel and I just realized today that it hasn’t come out yet. So, while it’s Music You’ve Never Heard, it’s really Music No One Has Ever Heard. That’s alright, I’m still going to tell you about it. I was going to show you another song, but since the record isn’t out yet, I think I’ll hold off showing you that one and just showing you the video from his website.
Most of you know that I’m a sucker for simple acoustic tunes and this falls right in line with that. Aftermath is stripped down, it’s clean, but it’s got some great layers tucked in there.
You can check out more and hear more songs here. Let me know what you think.
So, Barry might make fun of me for this. Probably call me a dirty hippie or something, but there’s no denying how amazingly these two guys can make their guitars talk. I’m an unashamed Dave Matthews fan for sure, but I’m more of a fan of his acoustic stuff, especially when it’s just him and Tim Reynolds. Mind blowing. I’d love to be able to pull off half the stuff he does with his guitar and still have the ability to sing.
Any Dave Matthews fans out there?
A friend of mine sent me this guys name the other day as something that I should check out. He mentioned that he was an artist in the ‘painting’ sense as well as the ‘writing and playing music sense’ and that I should take a look. It took me a couple days, but when I did get around to checking out his stuff, I found myself focussing more on his artwork than on his music. I took a rabbit trail to this site and ended up fascinated by it. It really is pretty amazing stuff.
Then a few days later I realized that I should probably check out his music too. And here we are. The next featured artist on the old ‘Music You’ve Never Heard’ section. Again, pretty amazing stuff.
Now, I didn’t really get permission to play his song on my blog, but I figure if every one of you go buy his record on iTunes, he’ll forgive me. Plus he’s playing this song on his Myspace so I think it’s okay…. but you really should go buy it.
Now, I don’t know much about this guy, except that he’s local and eventually I’d like to grab a coffee or something with him, but I’ve never communicated with him so we’ll see. In the meantime, enjoy and go check out more of his stuff.
And while we’re here discussing ‘Music You’ve Never Heard’, hit me up with some music I’ve never heard. What are you listening to, that we’ve never heard?
