Something New.

Regulars around here know music is my first love, so I’m always open to hearing something new. I read about this cat

…earlier this week on one of my favorite urban websites, His name is Kevin Michael and he’s being compared to the usual suspects (early Prince, early Michael Jackson, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah.) You know how they do when they label someone new as sounding like someone(s) familiar so we’ll be inclined to give a listen. I know one thing for certain: dude’s got some big ass hair.

I like this particular tune, which features Lupe Fiasco:

Here’s the video for his song, Vicki’s Secrets.

What do you guys think?

  1. >Thanks for hipping me to something new. I'm digging his li'l funky sound. I did have flashbacks to Prince. I just remember staring at that Prince For You cover for HOURS! I wish this young brother that kind of consistent success! Ced is going to LOVE this post!


  2. >I like this. Something about that first song reminds me of song "Everyday People" by Arrested Development. Maybe it's because they both have a southern twang kind of feel.


  3. >Hey Lo, love the blog. Do you know how loved you are in New York?! I was at a conference last week and your name kept coming up as an example of one of the best writers out there today who could do literary just as well as commercial. I was so proud. :-)This guy is groovy!Rachel Minn
