We’re back with another round of Bands x Brands, artists on the verge that brands should keep their eyes and ears on.
Tampa born and New Orleans based singer/songwriter Benjamin Booker just released his debut album, Benjamin Booker. Endorsed by the likes of Jack White, Benjamin’s style has been called a cross between Sam Cooke and Muddy Waters. He is a great new talent, and although still a little raw around the edges, he is one to watch for in the future for sure.
Another artist to keep an eye on is Young & Sick, a Los Angeles based music and art project. The brainchild of Dutch artist Nick Van Hofwegen, he is responsible for all of the writing, production and even artwork. In fact, Young & Sick has created artwork for the likes of Robin Thicke and Foster The People. In April , Young & Sick released his first self-titled album and was initially released on vinyl with Hofwegen randomly inserting his artwork into the record sleeves.
