Music Monday: Ben Rector


Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to Music Monday! Let's share some songs we've been enjoying lately!  If you would like to play and I really hope you do, please see the rules and link up below.

Rules:

 Every Monday share one or two of songs you've been enjoying lately.  It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up at the bottom of this post by sharing your post's url.

This week I'm spotlighting an artist I've really been enjoying on the radio for the last few weeks, Ben Rector.  I hadn't heard of him before "Brand New" started to get air time, but I'm really enjoying listening to his new album.

"Brand New" (2015) - When I saw this performance on Conan, I was pleased to see that he still sounds excellent.  Such an upbeat song!



"Paris" (2015) - This is also off his newest album.  The more I listen to his music, the more I hope his career takes off (I know, he already has six albums out, but his music deserves more attention)!

  2. Hey, Comment Buddy! I know it's not June yet, but I thought I'd say hello anyway! That's amazing that Ben Rector has 6 albums out! That's quite a few! As for what I've been listening to — just radio lately, but on Top 40, I'm enjoying "Close" by Nick Jonas and Tove Lo. I like how dramatic the song is and it's about people who are braver than me! I can never get that "close" lol!

    1. Hi there! Good to meet you - I'm really looking forward to June! :)

      I never really listened to Nick Jonas until recently, or Tove Lo, but both have good voices.
