Isn’t it nice when chance drops a pretty piece of music in your lap, no searching required? That happened to me today when Jay Smart followed me on Twitter. (Yay! Now I have FOUR followers!) He’s a Minneapolis musician with a Twitter account that’s even younger than mine, plus a Youtube channel with only one video.
But don’t let that deter you because, DAMN, does he have a voice. No gravel here. It’s pure grownup-choir-boy and it sounds amazing. I’m super weirded out by the fact that the lyrics to “Greenback Boogie” mention cream cheese, but that hasn’t kept me from listening to Smart’s cover ten times in a row. This is the kind of stuff people go nuts for on the Voice.
Check it out.
