Hey everyone! It's a new month which means I have some new artists that I suggest you should take a listen to! My first artist is Steve Salazar. He is a singer/songwriter from Woodbury, MN. Currently, Steve is in the studio finishing up his debut full length. This CD will be his first full band record. He has released numerous acoustic albums that are available on iTunes. My favorite being The Feeling We Feel EP. Another thing he brings to the table are his rad covers of songs such as "California Girls" by Katy Perry and "Our Song" by Taylor Swift. He is a very talented guy and has quite the buzz behind him.
My second must listen to artist is a band from Philadelphia called Valencia. They recently finished up their tour with Motion City Soundtrack, Saves The Day, and Say Anything. Now the band is touring in Australia. They have a brand new record they just released called Dancing With A Ghost. They are one of the hardest working bands I've ever seen. One amazing thing about them is if you go to their show you'll get to meet them.
Both Steve Salazar and Valencia create some of the most amazing music I've ever heard. Listen to them and you'll be stoked beyond belief!
