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’ FromJacksonville, 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.

Welcome back, ya’ll.  I hope since our last encounter, you’ve been cramming lots of Prince EA down those ear canals…but I’m also hoping that you’ve left some room….’cause I come bearing more of that gooood good.

Who Dat, Harpo?  Sam Smith

Hailin’ From:  England, United Kingdom

Spunky Calls It (Genre):  Blue Eyed Gritty R&B w/A Side of Pop

What’s to Like?:  I don’t know if it’s just me and my somewhat addictive personality, but every now and again, I come across a song that I can’t help but listen to over and over and over again. I’m talking, HOURS of ‘on-repeat’ action, people.  Sam Smith’s Nirvana is one of those songs.  First, there’s his arresting voice that constitutes the perfect trifecta of smooth, strong and intoxicating …kind of like a top-shelf single malt Scotch Whisky.  Goes down nice and easy and leaves you with that warm tingling sensation.  And those high notes? Oh, yes sir, yes ma’am.  But if that weren’t enough, there’s the content.  The lyrics paint pictures on the heart’s canvas that we can all relate to.

It’s too late to run away from it all
It’s too late to get away from it all
I’m done with running so I give in to you

This moment has caused a reaction
Resulting in our reattachment

Oh you take me to nirvana
I don’t think this will last
But you’re here in my arms

Reconnecting with that ex that you knew you should have left alone because it obviously, would never actually work out, but decide to go with it anyway because…it just feels right in that moment?  Well, that moment is Nirvana.

Check it.

If you’re interested, Sam has a new album dropping in the U.K. and U.S. on May 26, 2014 and June 17, 2014, respectively.  I’ve already given it a listen, and trust me, you should definitely be interested.
