‘Spot light on a Song’
Waking up this morning to the most serene pink sky as the sun rises is similar to watching an artist paint a watercoloring masterpiece. Amazing time of year now that daylight savings is in effect.
Today’s ‘spot light’ artist is so refreshing and uplifting. Mostly because the artist is just 24 years old and is able to capture a sound encapsulating the best of the old with the best of today’s new sounds. New sounds which are hard for me to swallow sometimes. Especially being a song writer.
Living with a teenager has its benefits; I guess they help keep you young! Today’s artist was introduced by mine. Most of the time I take a pass on his choice of teen pop, rap synth stuff that plays on the radio today. But this song resonated immediately. This artist nailed it! Imagine ABBA meets 2016. Terrific hooks and vocals with a solid melody, while still being able to hear and understand what he is saying. Whew. I won’t give up hope on this generation quite yet. 😉
Garrett Borns (born January 4, 1992), better known by his stage name BØRNS, is an American indie pop artist from Grand Haven, Michigan. BØRNS immersed himself in arts from his earliest days of childhood. On November 10, 2014, BØRNS released his debut single, “10,000 Emerald Pools”, on Interscope Records, along with the releases of his debut EP, Candy.
So keep your ears open for this young man. He is definitely going to bring us good music! You can catch him live in the line-up for Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2016. And thanks to my special teenager who keeps his mom hip. <3
