Franc O’cher

New Brunswick-based Franc O’cher is a singer-songwriter who mixes folk pop with folk and acoustic elements. He has been compared to James Bay, James Blunt, JP Cooper, and many others. His musical inspirations include the likes of Bryan Adams.

On November 11th, he released his newest release called So. The single is a letter of love to a step-daughter that has run away to live with another father.

I recommend this song to fans of Bob Dylan and James Arthur. If you like what you hear, then please like and follow the links below.

Melbourne-based Karen Harding is a singer-songwriter who makes acoustic folk-pop with rock and contemporary elements. She has been compared to Sarah McLachlan, Eva Cassidy, and Karen Carpenter.

On December 16th, she came out with her newest single; It’s Okay. The single tells a story of self-frustration of believing you should be somewhere, someone, or somehow different from where you are. Then, allow yourself to drop it and let go of compassion for yourself.

I have covered Karen before, and her music never gets old. I love this easy-listening single; it has a smooth and soothing tone. Sometimes, we all need to know everything is and will be okay. This is a great reminder.

This is great for First Aid Kit fans and other female folk artists today. If you like what you hear, then please like and follow the links below.

Ali George

UK-based Ali George is a singer-songwriter who mixes indie folk with folk rock elements. Ali has released six albums and has performed at Glastonbury and The Village Pump (Trowbridge) festivals, as well as countless other venues in the UK. Acts like Bon Iver and John Martyn additionally inspire him.

On November 25th, Ali released his newest single, Hard to Find. The single is about the struggles of everyday life under the pressures of daily life. It additionally focuses on how hard it is to live with others in a lockdown situation.

I love the guitar riff in the beginning, and the one thing that stands out for me is the vocals. It almost identically sounds like Tallest Man On Earth, and that’s a big compliment.

I recommend Ali to fans of Jack Johnson, Bon Iver, and other similar folk artists. If you like what you hear, then please like and follow the links below.

7KY

Las Vegas-based 7KY (pronounced Sky) is a producer, composer, and singer-songwriter who is only 23 years old. He focuses on releasing songs ranging from piano ballads, psychedelic pop, and EDM-centered records. Although most of his sound is familiar, you never know what you’ll get.

On December 8th, 7KY came out with his newest single, Mushroom Fantasy. When he was 20, he saw visions of his future girlfriend while on a psychedelic trip. He is now dating that girl, and this song is for her.

7ky is one extraordinary musician, and he reminds me a little of The XX and other psychedelic musicians. It’s I’d a cool story and inspiring but not to the point where try shrooms…

If you’re a fan of The XX and other indie electronic pop bands, you would like this song too. If you like what you hear, then please like and follow the links below.
