This week's new music feature is all about a duo that's doing big things right away in its young existence. Founded in 2014, Cosmos & Creature is a progressive pop duo based in Los Angeles, Calif. The name comes from the idea of how big the universe is, how small we are and how it works together in perfect harmony. The music taps into this ideal in a creative and beautiful way. This has resulted in a solid social media following and millions of streams on Spotify.
This week's "New Music Monday" features a talented artist who goes by the name of Benji. Now, he's no stranger to my blog. I featured his group - 3for3 - about two years ago. Since that time, Benji has branched out into a solo endeavor and, if his debut single is any indication, it'll be a successful one.
I'm always up to discover new music for my readers to listen to. Last week, I received an email from an artist named Daniel Matthias requesting me to feature a tune he created in collaboration with fellow artist, Kuizz Shah. Let me be honest for a second. This is the first time I've received a special request to feature a song. I normally choose new music that I've found by looking through iTunes, etc. The email came as a bit of a surprise but I was pretty darn honored to be asked to do a feature. That means other people are seeing my work on this blog and it truly does mean a lot. I hope my words, here, will do the song justice.
I've been a fan of this talented artist for several years. You may recall me featuring Eben Franckewitz - who simply goes by Eben - a few years ago. I figured I'd revisit him since some things have happened since that post.
This week, I'm featuring a duo of American Idol alums: Danny Gokey and Jordin Sparks.
The pair teamed up for a duet called "Chasing" for Gokey's new album Rise. This is Gokey's fifth studio album since his stint on the eighth season of Idol and it's coming off the heels of a GMA Dove Award win for his Christmas project, Christmas Is Here.
It's Christmas week! I'm bringing you not one, not two, but THREE tunes to get you in the holiday spirit - or, at the very least, put a smile on your face.
It's WEEK TWO of my annual "Christmas Tunes" series and this week's featured artist is a fantastic talent.
