Hidden Gem: Cobi *emerging soulful pop act similar to Hozier!

October 31st, 2016 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Music Video, Pop |

Shout out to Go Lightly Media who keeps pitching me really talented emerging artists and the latest I present to you today is Cobi. His first single, “Don’t You Cry For Me” has garnered over 15 million streams on Spotify since debuting in May and I love the track!

Cobi reminds me of three other emerging artists I really dig in Hozier (similar voice and production), Leon Bridges (similar soulful vibe) and Jamie N Commons (similar instrumentals and arranging). I think Cobi can achieve similar success as these artists and even rise to heights beyond what they’ve currently achieved and I love Leon Bridges and Jamie N Commons!

Los Angeles catch me enjoying the soulful vibes of Cobi and Australian indie folk-rock band Boy & Bear at Teragram Ballroom this Wednesday November 2nd. Highly recommend this show as I’m a new fan of what Cobi is putting out there and a HUGE FAN of the headliner, Boy & Bear, who remind me of a mix between The War On Drugs and Houndmouth.  Stream “Don’t You Cry For Me” and “Prophet Story” from Cobi below.

Not throwback thursday: Fitz & The Tantrums

December 23rd, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Pop, R&B |

Although their music sounds like some back in the day R&B and Funk/Soul stuff, Fitz & The Tantrums are a rising soulful pop band from Los Angeles.

They released debut EP in 2009 (purchase), got signed by Dangerbird Records in 2010 and released their debut album (purchase) in August ’10. Here’s a couple of my recent favorites from Fitz & The Tantrums.
