Have you heard K.Son’s “Now &Forever” Digital CD? I was truly impressed by this newcomer to the R&B/Soul/Smooth Jazz scene. He’s got an awesome voice reminiscent of Ne-yo, Seal or maybe Montel Jordan. I first heard the killer single “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” on Solar Radio. His rendition of the song once made famous by “Tears for Fears” includes his soulful vocals, a raging guitarist &bass player, and an unexpected hip hop riff.
The video is great – check it out at: http://www.vimeo.com/2362858
I was able to get the full album download at Amazon (or you can get the singles) – here’s the link –
In a recent interview, he says “If I were to categorize myself in a record store, I would probably be hanging out with the likes of: RES, The Brand New Heavies, Amel Larrieux, Sade, Loose Ends, Jill Scott, Me’shelle NdegeOcello, India.Arie and the Groove Collective.”
I’d like to see him collaborate with anyone of them! I’m gonna keep an eye on K.Son – if he keeps putting out music like this, he’ll no doubt have a big future – and I love discovering talent before everyone else does!
