Cool New Music

3 08 2009

This past weekend I went to Fell’s Point, Baltimore for a friend’s Bachelorette Party. Before my friend and I met up with the party, we went to one of my favorite bars by the water, Kooper’s Tavern.

Friday night they had some live music so the place was even more appealing.  We sat inside by the bar and checked out the musician…A guy on a guitar. Pretty standard as far as live music in bars goes. But when I actually listened to what the guy was playing, I knew it was more than just your “standard bar jams.” 

Turns out the musician was a guy named Clifton Williams of the Blue James Band. Not only was Mr. Williams quite nice and attractive (yes, he and I spoke to each other), but his music was fun and energetic. I would describe the sound as reggae meets mellow folk rock. He reminds me of what you would hear if you combined Jack Johnson with Sublime. I don’t know, but it was really pleasant to hear, and if I were in a dancing mood, you know I would be grooving to the music, as well.

As my friend and I were getting ready to tear ourselves away from the bar and the music to go to meet up with the Bachelorette party, I went over to check out the merchandise table. I signed up for their email list (I am pretty excited to hear from them!) and was looking through the various CDs on the table, when Clifton encouraged me to take a free sampler CD of his. Free? CD? Of an attractive guy’s music? And I even like the music, no less? Ummm, OF COURSE!  So that was pretty exciting. I’ve been listening to his CD all morning and I have to say, it’s pretty catchy. (You can preview some of the music here. I have the songs, Remember Me and Hello There from that album on my sampler.) Anyways, I do love hearing new musicians and this was no exception. I hope you like them too!
