For the avid readers of Single of the Day I have to let out a little apology. I took an unforeseen break from doing the blog. I had to, but I’m sorry that you missed your daily dose of new music bits. I was beginning to run out of things to say. I was finding myself swamped on getting things done, especially when putting time in here (where there isn’t any financial reward). As much as a labor of love as it is, I’m finding I’m going to have to get to it when I can. Hopefully there will be spurts of non-stop daily additions.
Why did I put up the title catch 22? Well, for a few reasons. 1. I got myself into a blog that required daily thought. I like creating, but I have to focus that creative energy. Right now, I’ve been ignoring a slew of new music in my head. I’m cracking it slowly. 2. I got into a great workout regimen that started taking up an hour a day. That hour usually contained Single of the Day. I’m not going to stop the workouts. Which is going to make it more difficult to get Single of the Day done. 3. I recently lost my drivers license. The hoops I had to jump through to get a replacement were ridiculous. I understand why, but still it was a little over the top.
Enough about that. Let’s get on with some music…
I’m feeling a little funky today. The track you’re hearing is Wait A Minute by Nik West. Talk about a kick ass funk pop track. Nik gets comparisons to Prince, Erykah Badu, and others. I’ll say she’s got some serious chops going on with some great songwriting to go with it. I got hooked right from the getgo with the drum pattern going on in the intro.
I’m not sure if she’s also singing, but if it is her – damn she’s got some smooth vocals to go right over the top of that slamming bass playing.
Do yourself a big favor and spend some time checking out more of her material, you won’t be disappointed. I swear.
Till next time – get your ears filled with music!
