I’ve been meaning to do a blog of indie artists that I feel deserve some more recognition, or at least, worthy of a short snippet listen on iTunes which could potentially lead to more.
Kim DiVine’s album “Square One” is an album that is mellow, think of Ingrid Michaelson or Lisa Loeb. Singer/songwriter type of music with a good production, soothing voice and overall calming effect. The best song is “All Night”, other great contenders are: “Raining”, “Little Things”, “We Could” and “Letting Go”. Last I heard, her music was circulating the college radio network.
Check her out here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/square-one/id319213312
Another similar mellow artist with a slight John Mayer vibe is Brent Cates. Mellow music, good driving music and the guitar playing keeps the listener hooked. My favorite songs from the album “Wasted Words” are “She’ll Do” and ” Back to Me”.

All right, those are my spotlights for the moment, I’ll be back with more indie artists to report on, stay tuned.
