Where ya’ll been? Somewhere listening to Sam Smith, I would hope. The album officially dropped last week and man, what a banger (just like I told you *ahem*). If you’re planning on catching the US tour, I hope you already copped your tickets ‘cause, uh, the whole tour is pretty much sold out. Fret not, though, I’ve got someone else you can check out and it’s just the kind of music you need for these sultry summer nights. It’s the kind of music that’s a backdrop for summertime memories…get your listening ears on.
Who Dat, Harpo? Joonie
Hailin’ From: Jacksonville, North Carolina
Spunky Calls It (Genre): Neo-Soul/R&B
What’s to like?: If you’re a fan of artists like Bilal, Dwele, Eric Roberson, D’Angelo, Donny Hathaway or Van Hunt …you’re really gonna thank me for introducing you to Joonie. His music is…well, it’s love music. New love. Old love. And everything in between. His latest project, Contrast, admires love on first sight, dances with the idea of forever and laments losing love. You’ll find yourself not only singing along, but FEELING along.
Need a lil’ taaaaste? Okay.

“Hey lover, you’re the essence of the song I sing and I’d do crazy things, crazy things, to show you what you mean to me/I could have the world but it could all fade away, I tell you this, I give it all up, baby, for you”
Listen …literally. You need to jump into the links, immediately.
