Ik geef toe: de muziek wijkt wat af van wat hier gebruikelijk is op USCM maar ik denk dat het geen kwaad kan om hier aandacht aan te besteden.
We krijgen regelmatig tips van onze contactpersoon bij The AristoMedia Group in Nashville. Deze tips betreffen dan meestal beginnende country artiesten die nog niet zijn doorgebroken bij het grote publiek. We zullen proberen je zo veel mogelijk op de hoogte te houden van deze tips.
Met dank aan James Freeman.
Paul Bogart – “All That Cowboy Jazz”
Paul Bogart can be described as the epitome of traditional country music. Even though he is young, his music could easily fit alongside of legends such as Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, and Johnny Cash. His music is a testament to the Old West lifestyle that Paul lives and breathes. A genuine cowboy, Paul grew up in Northeast Oklahoma and has been competing in rodeos since he was twelve with multiple World Championship titles under his belt. When he sings about the cowboy life you know it is genuine because he has lived it. His new album Leather is a testament to that lifestyle and hearkens back to those Heartland roots and homegrown work ethic. “All That Cowboy Jazz” is an infectious western swing song that will get listeners on their feet dancing across the floor within seconds.
Crowder – “Prove It”
Texas-born singer songwriter Crowder first rose to fame singing lead vocals for the Contemporary Christian David Crowder Band. He decided to go solo in 2012, and over his career he has sold over 2 million albums, has been nominated for two Grammy Awards, and his last album American Prodigal debuted Top 5 on the Billboard Country Chart. He still shares his Christian message, but has fused his musical style with other genres drawing influences from folk, country, and electronica. He refers to this unique style as “Swamp Pop” or “Folktronica” and the influences can easily be heard on his new song “Prove It.”
