It’s been quite a while since I wrote something on our great blog

A few artists made me want to write something and I’d email blog editor Rachel to say “I am writing something for you”… then nothing.

Then something, someone… And I am now writing this to you.

I heard that something, that someone yesterday on the Soundcloud machine.

That someone is James Tillman. He is based in New York City and the song is called “Love Within“.

And my soul is filled for another day.

Enjoy !

Editor’s Note: Here’s another artist Mathieu recommends, but hasn’t had a chance to write about — Oakland, CA’s Fantastic Negrito
