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.
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.
Enough verbiage. Enjoy the music!
