Peven Everett

Peven Everett has been fly­ing under a num­ber of people’s musi­cal radars, but he’s worth ‘dis­cov­er­ing.’ I first heard Everett’s music back in 2004, and have been a fan ever since.

Live Ver­sion of Every­day Girl

 
The last song in this post is a col­lab­o­ra­tion between house music icon Roy Davis, Jr. and Peven Everett. It was fea­tured in an Alvin Ailey Amer­i­can Dance The­ater dance piece, Grace, which I saw last year in New York. I knew the beat imme­di­ately, and the song worked per­fectly with the dance performance.

Mumford-And-Sons


Mum­ford & Sons

I know…I know. I am really late to the Mum­ford & Sons party, but I have fallen in love with their music. I don’t know when I first heard a song by the group, but their sound stuck with me. While folk is, admit­tedly, out­side of my nor­mal musi­cal rota­tion, Mum­ford & Sons has drawn me in — along with Michael Kiwanuka. I have been lis­ten­ing to songs by Mum­ford & Sons, here and there, on Spo­tify, but my inter­est and appre­ci­a­tion of their music was taken to a new level last night when I watched the doc­u­men­tary Mum­ford & Sons: The Road to Red Rocks on Show­time. I have been hum­ming Lit­tle Lion Man ever since. You can click the poster below to learn more about the film and air dates.

A cool short that intro­duces you to Fred­die Joachim.
