Artists You’ll Dig

by Isabele Riser

Below you can find a number of artists who you probably haven’t heard whose music you’ll Dig (heh).

For you R&B marsh-mellow kids like myself I’d recommend:

Daniel Caesar: Violet, Get You, and Japanese Denim

Noname: Shadow Man, Diddy Bop, and Forever

Pigeon John: The Grand Ol’ Waltz and She Cooks Me Oatmeal

D’Angelo: Brown Sugar, and Untitled(How Does It Feel)

If you live for the Kanye’s samples, weepy love songs, live instruments and also 50’s charm:

Ray Charles: I’ve Got A Woman, and Hallelujah I Love Her So

Otis Redding: Stand By Me

Sam Cooke: A Change Is Gonna Come, Willow Weep For Me, and For Sentimental Reasons

Marvin Gaye: Yesterday, I Wish It Would Rain, and What’s Going On

If you’re the grooviest of all your friends:

Bobby Caldwell(Quiet Storm Gold): What You Won’t Do For Love

James Brown: I Got You, Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag

Nina Simone: Baltimore

Otis Redding: Stand By Me

If you like Ashanti and also rappers who feud with 50 cent and experience the career-ending effects (I do):

Ja’ Rule and Ashanti: Mesmerize, Always On Time, and Put It On Me

Fabolous: Into You, and Can’t Let You Go

Foxy Brown: Get Me Home

That’s all for now. Tune in next time!
