As usual, life’s changes for the better slow me down a little but I’m glad to be back on track. It helps that independant artists like Teisha Marie, Sandra St. Victor The Foreign Exchange, and Zo! have come up out with new albums this year that give the reassurance that music is not dead. Make no mistake, artists such as Mayer Hawthorne (a track where I keep waiting for Donald Fagen to come out of behind the curtain), Janelle Monae (with the one and only Esperanza Spaulding), Robert Glaspaer (with Brandy as the vocalist), Omar (with Caron Wheeler) , and Quadron continue to shine through.
My respect for the independent artists here in Atlanta continue to grow as I began to realize that artists Gwen Bunn and Brittany Bosco have been around for a good while, but have gotten little recognition. I’m hoping they get more exposure in the future. Thanks by word of mouth and underground promotion, I was alerted to Water Seed’s “Wonder Love 2” CD and Margot B’s EP “Live At Hazlett Theatre, both great sets. Major shoutouts to Hasan Brown. I must also give major props to the people I follow on Soundcloud because if I had not followed them, I would have never known about RC& The Gritz, who I learned about exactly 12 hours before I scheduled time to work on this podcast. Their duet with Erykah Badu is timeless.
