Yours truly has been asked to travel to the lovely city of Atlanta, Georgia to cover a show in the “Ones To Watch” tour series presented by Skype and Live Nation. The tour features emerging artists like Moon Taxi (*SWOON*), New Politics, Smallpools and Kodaline (stay tuned for more info on that one). I will be experiencing live and first hand, the soaring soulful sounds of Britain’s own alternative R&B sensation Alex Clare (HOLY BUCKETS!!!). You may be familiar with his song “Too Close,” that was all over television commercials and alt-rock radio in 2011-2012; he also released his sophomore LP Three Hearts this year.
Alex will be appearing at the Loft at Center Stage Theater in Atlanta Monday evening with Firekid and Taylor Berrett; I want you, my beloved readers, to experience all the fun with me, so I’ll be live-tweeting and posting pics just for you! If you don’t follow me on Twitter, you totally should be following me on Twitter, and you can find me @eastof8thblog. I’ll be using the hashtag SkypeSix (#SkypeSix). I even have an exclusive Skype and “Ones To Watch presents Alex Clare Off The Record” video to share with you to kick off the adventure.
