Five for Friday | 08.12.16

“Reckon” is one of those songs that is instantly likable; it gets stuck in your head—and your heart.


Let’s get right to it, fellow music adventurers. I have discovered five more jams for you to enjoy!

Drew Baldridge f/Emily Weisband: “Rebound” | Drew Baldridge and Emily Weisband kick out a country slow jam of the highest caliber. Silky smooth vocals from both singers drift over super sexy country rock rhythms. When you are making out, put this song on: Events that lead to baby-making will commence.

Stitched Up Heart: “It’s So Easy” | Stitched Up Heart is a Gothic rock band hailing from L.A. While the sound is pure adrenaline mixed with gasoline, lead singer Alecia “Mixi” Demner’s vocals are explosive, to say the least. While it is easy to compare them to Evanescence and Halestorm, Stiched Up Heart brings something new to the table with an epic mix of femme fatale vocals and razorblade guitars.

Jarryd James f/Broods: “1000X” | Australian R&B featuring a New Zeland indie pop singer—that is why I write this column. This ballad is heavenly; it allowed to me float away on its lush vocals and emotional synth rhythms. Tune in to this hit when you need to chill out.

Adam Craig: “Reckon” | Country singer Adam Craig has plenty of twang—and plenty of talent. The beauty of this song is in its wordplay, which is very clever. Craig sells it with his fantastic voice and impressive range. This is one of those songs that is instantly likable; it gets stuck in your head—and your heart.

The Cadillac Three: “Party Like You” | The Cadillac Three is a Southern rock band that likes to party; their songs are fun and energetic with a ton of soul. The sound is Kid Rock meets Kings of Leon, with a dash of Jake Owen thrown in for good measure. This jam needs to be blasted at every BBQ, monster truck pull, and rodeo all across the nation.
