SXSW Song of the Day: James Smith – Got The Love

Posted on by Ricky in Song of the Day, South By Southwest | Leave a comment

Considering some of his songs have over 100 million plays I’m not sure this man needs much introduction.

James Smith is an artist from England and damn, he has a voice. Some people can just open their mouth and you know that they were meant to sing. This is James Smith. The man’s voice feels like it’s been through a lot even though the dude’s probably in his early 20s. I don’t have much more information because his name is James Smith and it’s impossible to Google.

His tunes are mostly ballads with a moderate gospel influence. It’s primed for world domination and probably fills a gap that Sam Smith left behind when he decided to do whatever he is doing now. Probably worth checking out

James Smith plays Stephen F’s Bar on March 15 @ 10:00pm.

SXSW Song of the Day: Bad Bad Hats – Detroit Basketball

This song might be the most winning thing about Detroit Basketball in the past five years.

Bad Bad Hats are a duo from Minnesota who formed in 2012 and have released three albums with a new record set to be released in April.

They have a fun pop-rock kind of sound that would not seem out of place if they were played on alternative radio in the ’90s. Listening to their discography I’m surprised some of their singles such as “It Hurts” did not hit my radar back in the day. Good thing I can make up for lost time at SXSW

Bad Bad Hats play Mohawk Outdoor on March 13 @ 9:00pm and The 13th Floor on March 14 @ 11:00pm.
