Sunshine. Beach. Picnic. Garden. Sunshine. Holidays are here. Summer Cotchin’. BBQ’s and Corona. Festivals. Stick this playlist on when you’re jamming with your boats and ho’s in your boat shoes and raybans.
“If the core of your music is hollow, it will crumble in the hands of others, but if it is a core full of honesty, then it will live forever.”
Wow, deep. Who said that? Was it the boy Wiz?
Nah, as far as I know it wasn’t the dude people online are treating like he’s some kind of prophet. No, as far as I know, these are the words of a charming singer-songwriter and good friend of mine, Rocky Nti.
Doing a plug for your friend eh? Ok I’ll bite, what makes him so good?
Well for starter’s he’s just more or less got himself signed for Crown Music – same label as Ellie Goulding and Jessie J and has recording sessions at Abbey Road.
Wow, impressive tekkers.
Indeed, but what’s most impressive about Rocky is that he’s one of the most down to earth people you’ll ever meet. I met him when he was a Performing Arts student at University and he’s always friendly and approachable, even when his first EP release on iTunes gets him sandwiched between Beyonce and Alicia Keys.
For me, I call him the missing link in songwriters between Kele Okereke’s more sombre work for Bloc Party and maybe perhaps Bruno Mars’ laid back poppy tunes. In short, he’s a foil and ok with it…
Inside joke. Maybe you’ll get it if you go searching through his other sites on the interweb. He has an amazing Tumblr – “Daily Rock” and here’s his Vimeo so you can check his music videos. See if you can clock his “guitar face”.
The face he’ll pull when he realises I’ve done this….
Later dudes! Will be answering all comments in my ask box as to any suggestions as to what I should blog about next!
