Thundercat On The Prowl

If you haven't heard of Thundercat yet, you should check him out.  Not only is he referred to as a "bass virtuoso", his songwriting and vocal melodies really put his musicianship on display.  He may be a little unorthodox, but so many things that are called "great" aren't cut from the "normal" cloth.  Not only an artist as himself, Thundercat is a flourishing studio musician that has contributed and has been featured on a number of artists' work that you may have already heard.  His influence can be heard on albums from artists like Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu, Childish Gambino, Flying Lotus, and Mac Miller, to name a few.  But for now, check out what he can do by himself because it's incredible!

The entire album entitled, Drunk, is incredible.  Super soulful and vibey!  Check it out here.

Jack Garratt - Surprise Yourself

I know very little about Jack Garratt except for the fact that this song/video hit me with the feels.  The message behind this song is so beautiful, and the fact that he was able to catch people "surprising themselves" on video is what makes the message stronger.  It's healthy to surprise yourself--face your fears--do something you never thought you would.  It changes you.  You become stronger within yourself, and have a clearer sense of why you should believe in yourself.  So, go ahead and check this out.  You may be inspired to "surprise yourself" today.

I just discovered Jack Garratt last night.  All I know is that he is from the UK, makes music for the right reasons, and is still active.  Here's another awesome song and video for you to check out!
