1957299 saints of valory 617 409 600x397 Hidden Gem: Saints of Valory *upbeat alternative Pop/RockI don’t know how I discovered this band, I just found four of their songs on my iTunes that I downloaded in December and finally got to. But wow, Saints of Valory‘s four song Possibilities EP is some great upbeat fun that I enjoy very much! This rock/alternative/pop band signed to Atlantic Records and are a hit!

Stream the Saints of Valory‘s Possibilities EP to understand the hype, my favorites are “Kids”, “Long Time Coming” and “Back Up”.

Oh wait, now I remember how I might have discovered them! When I was really into ”Royals” covers, I think I came across theres and became a fan of the band. Watch their Saints of Valory‘s acoustic cover to “Royals”, the harmonized vocals are hot and makes you want to sing along to Lorde‘s catchy lyrics!

After spending an entire afternoon listening to all 41 of his YouTube videos, I am convinced he’s the best vocalist out there right now; not only making originals but covering other artists songs. I fall in love with anything he touches.

Check out the video for “2 AM Prayer” after the jump, and look for the free download in the description.

Hidden Gem: ROSSY *acoustic hip-pop

July 19th, 2011 by | Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop |

 Hidden Gem: ROSSY *acoustic hip popROSSY jumped onto the scene last summer when he collaborated with Chris Young The Rapper on “Move Slow” last Summer. Then in June, they collaborated again on “Twist Another One Up“, a catchy Summer anthem. In July, Rossy released The Crush (DOWNLOAD), a dope 4-track hip-pop project that is a must-download.

ROSSY reminds me recently of Dave Patton as he’s got catchy summer fun vocals, chill acoustic instrumentals and potential for mainstream success. Anyways, here’s the 4-track project, The Crush. My favorites are “Move Slow” and “Everybody Wants To Hook Up”, both featuring Chris Young.

Introducing Windoview

April 6th, 2011 by | Pop |

Windoview 600x600 Introducing WindoviewWindoview is not a typical artist we feature on here. An acoustic trio of 17 year olds from the suburbs of Philadelphia. Perfect for summer time, warm nights, bonfires, and beach fun. These guys definitely lock in on that Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz and Eric Hutchinson vibe, yet perform with their own style and originality.

Guitars, harmonicas and ukuleles?  Yessir, Windoview is definitely a musical breath of fresh air. I find it hard to explain why I like them but something about the vocals and acoustic instrumentals interests me in Windoview.

They have recently finished their debut album, Pine Island, which is available on iTunes. Here’s my two favorites from the album.
Windoview – City Lights
Windoview – 4am
You can listen to the full album on their bandcamp page. Be sure to follow Windoview on facebook and twitter.
Since were on the subject of dope acoustic music, here’s a campfire acoustic version of one of my favorite songs by The Knocks, “Dancing With The DJ“.
