While music usually speaks for itself, having a pretty instrument can’t hurt. Here are three artists that I’ve just been introduced to, thanks to ArjanWrites and one of my new favorite blogs, EQ. These guys are as talented as they are attractive. Check them out below!
Bradley Say – British singer/songwriter Bradley Say lists among his influences – Girls Aloud, the Sugababes, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Mika among others and calls his sound “electropopurban.” Sounds right up my alley! I just discovered this artists, thanks again to ArjanWrites. Arjan calls his debut single, “Say What,” a “hook laden pop song with a fun, ’80s electronic edge.” I love it. Check out some of his other songs on his MySpace player. Standouts include “Wasted,” “Murderer” and “Showdown.” Also promising, a new “club/pop/anthem” that Say talks about on his blog called “Alter-Ego.” Sounds hot! I’m definitely keeping this guy on my pop-radar. His album, Seeing Red, is due out soon. Americans, you can purchase his debut single “Wasted” on iTunes now! – Via ArjanWrites
Christian Burns – According to his MySpace bio, British singer/songwriter Christian Burns found his spotlight in the dance music world when he was contacted by the world famous DJ Tiësto to help write and do vocals for his Elements of Life album. Having previously been a member of BBMak as well as his new group, The Bleach Works, dance music wasn’t exactly the logical next step. It appears that working with Tiësto changed his mind, collaborating on Tiësto’s 2007 single “In The Dark.” The singer’s vocals are also featured on Tiësto’s 2008 albumIn Search of Sunrise 7. 2008 also saw a collaboration with Benny Benassi (“Love and Motion“). His album with The Bleach Works is due out in 2008, as are collaborations with Matt Darey and BT. Check out EQ for a little video of Burns’ recent visit to New York. Make sure you listen for “Breakdown,” a hot new song from Burns. – via EQ
