I keep asking myself that question. Where's the real music? Particularly from Chicago artists. I know about Common and Kanye West, but is that it?
As a side note, I want to mention that if you like Chief Keef or others like him, this blog will most likely contain NOTHING that you're looking for. Not trying to bash the guy, but I would NEVER refer to anything he's done as music.
I'm not looking to focus on those who are already famous, I might write about some famous artists on occasion, but that is not the basis of what I'll be doing.
I'm looking for the regular everyday people who are making music and performing on the local scenes when they can.
I have made it my personal mission to find everything about Chicago music, that's good anyway, and share it here. I have already found some awesome artist here that I want to share with you.
If I feature someone that you've heard of before, great! If you haven't heard of them before, even better!
I will explore artists from every genre of music, including R&B, rap/hip-hop, house, rock, folk and jazz.
Coming up this week is a very talented singer/ artist by the name of Lester Jay. His vocal talent is AMAZING and he does R&B and House. Two of my favorites! You're gonna love him!
