This is a new type of article. Today, Friday, we want to highlight a free release that a talented artist put out for your costless enjoyment. While there is always music out there that people put out for free, there is always that all-too-human way of thinking; “If this is free, how good can it really be?” Well, we have done the vetting for you, and this is a download worth having.
Derek Nelson & The Musicians are a Chicago band that play a heartfelt, soulful, and exuberant style of Americana roots music. They offer up their truly stellar EP ‘Riders of the Tide’ for free. All you have to do is sign up for their email list, which they do not spam you from. But, trust us, if you like this type of music even slightly then you’ll want to hear their updates. Still not convinced? Listed below to the embedded EP. Notice how on Come and Wait there is a building rambunctiousness, made poignant by brillant fiddle highlights. On Oh Mama (I’m Going to the Other Side) we find an arresting slow burner that will make you pause and listen. And those are just the first two songs….
Celebrate Free Release Friday by painlessly adding to your music collection a beautiful EP!
