My socks have well and truly been blown off.
Driving to work one day i heard this song and really liked it. Throughout the day I kept singing the chorus and realised that I wanted to know more about it. So, OK Google to the rescue!
'OK Google' I said, 'i'm only human after all, put the blame on me'. Within seconds the YouTube video of the song came onto my phone. I pushed the big triangle and had the song blaring through my speakers in seconds. Awesome.
That wasn't what blew my socks off, that just impressed me greatly.
The song was sung with such confidence and such simplicity as well as gentleness, that I had assumed, and that is where the mistake began, that it was a famous American soul singer who I just hadn't heard before. The video above proved me very, very wrong.
Then I researched Rag'n'Bone man a bit more and was utterly floored by the power and subtlety in some of his songs:
Definitely an artiste who i will be following closely!
