Heard of Brady Alan? Tell Your Friends and Your Mom!

This guy. Oh, what can you say? When you're proud to call him a friend, and he's just dropped a full-length album? 

Not convincing yet? Let me try again. This guy. He records, mixes, produces, and writes all of his own material. Sometimes even in that order!! Well, maybe not exactly. But still shreds on multi-different-instrumentations. He just knows how to do shtuff

Let's see here. Some of his songs might cause you to think of John Mayer (a major influence to Brady), or a different singer-songwriter that's in that vast (confusing) category. While other genius work might encourage you to think of bands like Two Door Cinema Club or Vampire Weekend. And maybe Electropop, and bedroom pop too? Or just simply, "Pop," whatever that is today. 

Honestly, if you're trying to categorize this man and put him in a box, pick someone else to hit play on. He's got funny songs, fun songs, cool songs, chill songs, quiet acoustic songs, loud electric songs, happy songs, and (my favorite) sad songs. 

Brady Alan you say? Yes, I say. Go give this dude a listen. He lives in Nashville with a host of people, but sure stands out (and shines) among 'em. His newest work is my favorite, and you can hear the effort and passion in it. Have fun, and keep listening!

Are You Down Like Silver?

Back at it. Please, people, join in me supporting some more tunes that need to be heard by the masses!  

Found this duo a long time ago, and... I can't believe I haven't told this blog or hardly anyone about them! Have you heard of Peter Bradley Adams? What about Caitlin Canty? Well, if you have then you'll know you'll like these two. And if you haven't, join me. The water's fine.

This is one of those chill duos, that you can listen to anywhere. Maybe to wind down at the end of the day, or maybe when going on a long night drive. 

Maybe a little of that Novel Ideas sound, or Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors (Nashville country?), but his more chilled library. I can't get enough of them and hope you can't either. 

Good news? They released a new song earlier this wild year, so give it a listen! "Against the Night" quite honestly nails their sound pretty well, but seek out all their music, it's worth it.
