Big thanks to my friends at Boston’s WBUR and Here And Now talking about the year in review. Shout outs to SZA, Serpentwithfeet, Yaeji, Jordan Rakei and Nick Hakim for making such a big impact in music.
Can’t get enough of his voice, his lyrics and this video! This release has been in solid rotation for some time.
Looking forward to joining the KCRW crew this year for SXSW and seeing new and emerging talent. My goal is to check out some of these folks listed below. Also make sure to check out the Tune In jump off on 6th Street! (Flyer below).
