Youtube Spurs Music Creativity

I believe that there is more creativity on youtube with music than there is in a lot of places. It’s not unoriginal to take an idea of video looping and take it to a new level. Multi-track song editing and video editing is the new gig. This video is seriously amazing, and I wish I had the mind to be so creative and one day hope I can come up with something so clever. Enjoy.

You can purchase this song for .99 on iTunes HERE

Another youtube artist I hope to see music on iTunes very soon is Airto He sounds like Stevie Wonder and has just some amazing singing ability. I hope he keeps with the old style songs and I think he will do great. Amazing vocals and talented on many instruments as well. Here he is performing one of my favorite songs by Adele, “Chasing Pavements”

My Fresh New Artists Picks

Well, I just thought I’d share some more of some artists I see that are going to do well soon. I sort of pride myself on listening to the newest, unique music, opposed to listening to whats on the radio. So here are some more artists I’m predicting to do really well and I hope they do.

I saw Jessie Baylin open for James Morrison (if you don’t know about him go find his CD NOW and buy it, he is incredible) and she blew our minds with her smooth vocals that remind me a little of Rosemary Clooney, but she is definetly got the voice and songwriting talent to take her far, just gotta get more of a stage presence by telling more stories about her interesting songs. Here’s a clip of her in the Schubas Cafe performing one of our favorites of hers “See How I Run”

Next up is Greg Friedman. I actually found him for a competition with an Aimee Mann Song “Freeway” The contest was to perform her song in a music video and lots of people changed the song quite a bit from her version. His is by far my favorite version and even better than hers! I left a comment on the video saying just that and he actually e-mailed me with thanks, and sent me a link to his Myspace page where you can download the mp3 for free! Here is the video. Very cool sound, if you like it go download the song from his page!

Now the next one has totally captured my heart with her voice. She sounds like the old singers and I hope she collaborates with Michael Buble, Jamie Cullum, or Harry Connick, Jr. to do some old jazz standards because her voice is right there. Adele had one of her songs “Hometown Glory” as a free download several months ago on iTunes and I was very excited to hear some fresh vocals coming out of the UK. Here is her song that is now on VH1 some still as an artist on the rise but check out this girls crazy, great vocals!

My one band for a pick of sort of the rock, sometimes the Epic rock feel, heavy on piano is Air Traffic. I’ve been listening to them ever since there CD came out in January and it’s still good and fresh to me. I like a CD, and when I say CD I mean Digital, that I can burn out, find later and still enjoy the music just as much. Here is one of the Epic Piano Ballads “No More Running Away”
I’m sure some music guru is going to tell me it’s not a piano ballad but that’s how I feel about it.

If you’re still reading at this point, take my advice. I tell people this ALL the time and not many people listen. If you want to know some music that is new and not huge yet, download the iTunes free song a week! I’m serious, I found lots of artists that way including, The Fray, Jamie Lidell, James Morrison, etc. Just do it. You never know what you might here that you like.

Here’s to fresh new music!
