As a writer-y sort of person, sometimes I find myself watching spoken word poetry on Youtube. There’s some really great stuff out there – some fantastically talented poets out there. Cruising the Youtube, however, is not how I found out about today’s Good Music Monday artist. No, I came across this talented human being on the Facebook. Yes, my friends tend to be those sorts of people – the Facebook DJs. But, I think that’s okay. Music – especially good music – is to be shared.

Ok, enough about social media websites! Sheesh. Let’s talk about…

Watsky

George Watsky, aka Watsky, is a spoken word poet/rapper from L.A. His stuff is really different from everything else that I listen to/have heard. He’s more of a rapper than a poet/more poet than rapper. Get it? His music has meaning, and it’s fun it listen to.

Here’s the first Watsky video I ever saw (the one my friend posted!).

This is George’s super-popular video on the ‘Tube. He raps fast, y’all.

Here’s something a bit different – one of my favorite Watsky songs.

Ok, one more. If you want more Watsky – He’s on Youtube. Of course!

George Watsky (Watsky!) is a great example of a kid who took his dream and made it his reality. I really look up to him!

Watsky is going on tour! I saw his show in Detroit, MI last summer – definitely not a waste of time. Check out his soon-to-be-released album and his tour dates on his website: http://georgewatsky.com/cardboard-castles/

I’ve found that the deeper you get into the music scene, the more talented people you’re able to discover. It’s like they’re hiding from me…

Anyway, this summer I got to hang out with some amazing musicians, and in doing so both met and heard about a lot of other really amazing musicians… It was a good time.

This one guy I found out about, however, you’ve probably heard of. In fact, I really hope you’ve heard of him, otherwise, well, you must be out of it.

He’s on the radio quite a bit, and his popularity is really booming over here in the U.S. I hear he’s going on tour with Taylor Swift… I won’t say how I feel about that, but anyway…

Who am I talking about? Oh, come on…

Ed Sheeran

I’ll admit straight away that the biggest reason I have for posting this today is so I can put this music video up. I’ve listened to it/watched probably 40 times in the past two days. Have you ever had a song that you liked so much that you couldn’t bear to listen to any other song that wasn’t it? Yeah.

This song I liked so much when I first heard it, I went and bought it from itunes. I know. That shit cost me $1.29 – Not .99 like every other song. Who does Ed think he is?!

Maybe I’ll get drunk again. With his cat. I mean, really. Just great music, people.

Ed Sheeran in the wild

 

Happy Monday!

Get some of Ed’s (over-priced! just kidding.) music here.

Are you on Twitter? Of course you are! So’s Ed.

Can I call you Ed?
