Hey There Good People,
I have a been spending a lot of time writing music and not really blogging, so this post will hopefully get me back into the swing of things and shake off the bloggers dust. Now in my room there there is are literally thousands of CDs I have never listened, but I have either purchased or gotten them for free by independent artist in my world travels. Today I am gonna school you to two artist that you might not know about, but after this maybe it will check out, and end enjoy their work.
Now lets start with Kevin Sandbloom. Where did I get his CD? I have no idea. Did I even buy it? Once again, I am not sure, but the album “From A Bird” is proving to be very soulful acoustic R&B project. In fact I might even dare to call it Neo-Soul with a splash of smooth jazz as the song “Trouble” is proving to me. I wonder if he has any Stevie Wonder influence. The cymobols rides and jazzy horns confirm my feeling of a smooth jazz vibe. I wonder who he listens to? Great music indeed. I can’t seems seem to ignore the funk influence on “Fresh“. Once you listen you just might agree that Kevin can definitely play this thing called a guitar and seeming to land falsetto notes with eez on what I think is my fave joint the LP “Is It A Crime“. Dude a is dope. Now I wasn’t really feeling “Bounce” at first. but it grew on me. I still think there is a slight cheesiness to the song, but it has grown on me…lil bit. The title track “From A Bird” and “Weird” kind of sound the same, but they are both were songs I enjoyed on the project, so I am cool with that. This album deserves an honest listen. You can find more of his stuff Kevin Sandblooms music at www.kevinsandbloom.com There is some good music on this piece of work. I wonder who the back up singer is. Sing girl! Thanks for the music Kevin. You have my attention homie. I will def have to look up some more of your stuff.

The Reality Check Is Now In Session!
WOW! The Intro the album Chapter 2 is crazy. It makes me wonder what chapter 1 was all about. I mean this intro is so ill. Crazy! It caught come completely off guard. Reality goes in on airing out family business….deep family business. By the end of the intro I felt like I personally knew everybody that had loved and wronged him. Good job Reality. I am currently listening to Dear Diary 2 Entry Man! What an amazing song. Let me time to quote reality when he said ” Weird is the coolest thing a nigga ever called me”. I love the singer in the beginning. I actually listening to it again, and again. If you like rap albums with LONG VERSES then this might fit you well, if not well that might be a problem for you. The intro that I love on this album is a straight long verse that last for an outstanding 8:48. Longest rap song I have ever listened to…for real. Reality spews his life on this project. If you didn’t know him before you will after this LP. Hell! you might even know his social security number. I kid, but you gone learn about the Brooklyn native who now resides in Washington DC. Now I am listening to Make It Out which features J-Goode over a beat that is driven vocal and light, but super noticeable violin samples. I must applaud for how much he displays his belief in God and his faith, we need more non heathen rappers. End Of The World is such a good song. His realness really drives the album. His life story is a sad one, but a triumphant one. The really powerful songs really stand out and you won’t be disappointed. Bravo Reality. You can download and listen to the project at DatPiff.com where Reality was nice enough to post five extra songs that were not on the physical hard copy CD. Thanks for giving me your CD Reality, It was a good listen. Peace
