Chrisette Michele is news to me, but from what I can tell, those who are hip with it have listened to her for a while now. This new song reminds me a bit of some of my favorite Jill Scott tunes, like the songs my friends and I would listen to in my car on our way to the bars on a Saturday night.
Sometimes I feel like an old fart, sticking to the songs that I’m comfortable with and not taking the time to discover new stuff.
Soul Sessions has pushed me to delve into some great new music. Some of my favorite songs I played on the show came from people I’ve discovered within the last few months like Solange, FKA Twigs and Laura Mvula.
Who should I be listening to? What artist isn’t getting the airplay they deserve on mainstream radio that you think I should play?
