There are a variety of upcoming artists that have caught my eye and deserve recognition.
- 1. Bill Fay! He is a singer/songwriter who actually produced his first album in 1970. Now over 40 years later, he has another album entitled Life is People. It is definitely worth checking out! You can buy it on iTunes
2. Ezra Furman! He has a very Bob Dylan/Neil Young sound, partly because he incorporates the harmonica in many of songs. He is bringing a touch of folk rock to this generation. You can even download half the album free from his website or buy it from iTunes.
3. Tennis! They are a husband and wife band. They have a very early ’60s sound. Their music is catchy and the lyrics tell a story. Their videos are also shot with a very retro feel. You can find them on iTunes or sample some songs on their Myspace page.
- LeatherworkByLars is an Etsy shop that makes handmade leather purses. They can be personalized and customized how you would like. Who would want a Fendi or Coach purse when you could have a one of a kind authentic bag? I actually have one myself, and I get compliments on it everywhere I go. I get stopped in stores and on the street with ladies asking where they could get one. Plus, it is extremely well made. Definitely one of the best purchases I have made in a while!
Or if purses are not something that is of use to you, the shop also has handmade knives and sheaths.
There is a little something for everyone!
I tip my hat to you, for putting yourself out there and exploring your creativity!
