Can you believe that when the entire planet talked of nothing but Justin Bieber, the teenager star was only second place in the English Palmares sales here in Québec?
Don't be tricked by his age. He might be a month younger than me (I still have trouble accepting that fact), but Bazini is a professional in his field. His music is authentic, smooth, both uplifting and melancholic. Somehow it manages to both relax me and renew my stack of energy.
I'm not good at music classifications, so I'll run with his website's information, along with some of his known sources of inspiration.. that is "a disc that snakes between soul, jazz and pop." So if you like Otis Redding, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and Jim Morrisson, you might want to give it a try (those are his stated favourite artists, among others).
Now, here are three of his tunes, handpicked from his album...
Mellow Mood - 'cause it's my favourite!
Turn Me On - This one is a jolt of energy, and SO fun to sing loudly
I Wonder - A more relaxing song. Lovely lyrics. Also, it has an official videoclip.
I meant to put Freaky in there, because it's my "writing song" from this album. I love the mood it creates.
I hope some of you like this kind of music, because Bobby Bazini is a gem. I find he mixes very well with Mumford & Sons.
Don't forget to come back tomorrow. It'll be a special day!
