What a fun week for #newmusicfriday!
This week I spent Thursday and Friday at the Multiply Conference here in Indianapolis, IN. I was playing the event with my boys in the Aaron Pelsue Band.
We kicked off the event and then played a full set Thursday night. It was a long few days but it was an absolute blast!
I love sharing the stage with those guys!
Because of this I didn’t get through a ton of new music but there are a few highlights I want to point out for sure!
I started off with the Jon Bellion record. I absolutely loved the singles he released leading up to the release so I was really excited to see how it all came together.
It didn’t disappoint.
From there I hit the new Sufjan Stevens EP, Lonely Man of Winter he did with Alec Duffy that was perfect for the weather in Indianapolis that day.
Which bring me to a point I want to make about Christmas music before Thanksgiving...
THIS IS NEVER OK AND SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED!!
Ok rant over...
Although there was more Christmas music being released than I ever want to see before Thanksgiving I continued my new music search with the following:
Although 95% of the music I checked out was great I have to give this weeks trophy to Crowder’s I Know A Ghost.
I think this one hit me because I wasn’t expecting it. I’ve always loved Crowder and his unique musicial spin, but something about this album was unexpected.
The mix of hip-hop beats and old soul bluegrass is refreshingly unique and a lot of fun to listen to. So, if you haven’t had a checked to check it out yet, do yourself a favor and get on it.
In a close second I have to give the guys in Nightly the trophy. Ever since I saw these guys play at the Hi-Fi I have been a huge fan. There’s just something about their music that I can’t get away from. Haunting and beautiful is how I would describe it. Fun listen for sure.
What a great new music Friday!
I hope you got a chance to check out a few new artists and dig into their art. These artists put a lot of work into their music and gaining fans is always humbling.
If you didn’t get a chance go now and check out some of these album. Good stuff for sure.
Until next time remember this: You are an artist. Your voice is needed in this world more than you know and you are loved more than you can imagine.
Now go #createyourart
