During Christmastime, I got a bunch of gift cards for Amazon.com so I naturally bought music. I have discovered some wonderful people either through other artists I like, or through some of my friends. So here is a list of some people that I have been listening to as of late. First off, Madi Diaz. Joshua Radin recommended her to his fans on Facebook. She's a great songwriter and she has a great voice. Some videos will be included below if you want to get a taste of the music. The next person is Michael Rossback, his music is available on Amazon.com if you are interested, I think he's a mix between Gavin Degraw and Matt Nathanson. The next musician is Milow, he is from Europe but has recently done a stint at the Hotel Cafe, Cary Brothers recommended him on Facebook. He's had a few albums out and I can't get enough of him. Jose Gonzalez, is a super talented Swedish man who I discovered from two different soundtracks. I quite enjoy his guitar playing, he used pick patterns mostly and his vocals are tremendous. Below is a video of one of his songs, set in the hills of San Francisco, it's totally awesome. A band called Needtobreathe have also caught my attention. The amazing thing about youtube is that there are a million or more people who have videos that are great, and now we have access to see all kinds of music and listen to artists we never could before. That is just a taste of the music I have been listening to lately. I love discovering new music!
