I usually like to mix listening to the established artists that I know and love with finding new music and trying to discover new artists. Music discovery takes time though, you have to sieve through a lot of different artists to find someone that you connect with. This week, I was browsing through some of the artists on LoudUp when I came across Kenesha. She has a song called ‘Hey I’ which I really loved. She lists some of her influences as India.Arie and Tracy Chapman which totally explains why I like her (I definitely need to do a future post about India.Arie – I’m a huge fan!).
With the track ‘Hey I’, it has that acoustic laid-back story telling vibe I love, punctuated with perfect harmonies and percussion, it’s really beautiful. Have a listen if you’re looking to check out some new music.
