After having gone to a FREE concert with some local bands a while back, the main features were Magic Man & Gentlemen Hall (who happen to be from Boston). These were bands I hadn’t heard of before (though one of Gentlemen Hall’s songs, “Sail into the Sun” was featured on a television commercial and sounded familiar), but I liked their sounds. Afterward, I was feeling moved to find other great music to listen to from bands or singers I may not get a chance to hear from through mainstream airplay on the radio… so where does one go to to find that? The internet. Particularly, these sites seemed good for such searches: noisetrade.com & soundcloud.com.
And I found this singer, Rachel Yamagata, who has nice soft vocals (in the same vein of Colbie Caillat, Ray LaMontagne, Jack Johnson):
