3 Songs You Should Be Listening To (6-22-09)

Mat Kearney – “Closer to Love”

I had the pleasure of working a gig with Mat back in 2007.  I have been a long time fan of his music and his new release “City Of Black & White” does not disappoint.  The first single “Closer to Love” is getting  a lot of radio play in major markets this summer.  If you are not familiar with Mat you need to get acquainted right now!  And don’t stress over the fact that he spells his first name with only one “T”.  I will give you a “T” later if you like.


Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears – “Sugarfoot”

This track is hott!  (There you go, your missing “T” courtesy of Kearney.)  If these Texas natives are not on you music radar, well your radar needs to be repaired.  These guys are bringing raw, funky, new blues on to the scene in a major way.  Their music is off the charts.  And in my opinion, they have one of the best band names out there right now.


Daniel Merriweather – “Change”

A fan of Robin Thicke and Justin Timberlake are you?  Do you find yourself saying, “yeah, but I wish they were Australian.”  Problem solved.  Welcome Daniel Merriweather to the stage.  Daniel has a great R&B and soul vibe and knows how to partner up with industry heavyweights.  His first full length album “Love and War” has already dropped in several countries.  It will hit the United States in October 2009.  In the meantime, our American readers can buy the import or enjoy the first single “Change” featuring Wale.  This is a heavy rotation song for me right now.
