In my effort to spread the word about independent artists, here are two more that I’m really enjoying these days.
Kendall Payne – Paper Skin
Kendall Payne recently came out with a new independent album named Paper Skin. I really enjoyed her “Jordan’s Sister” album several years ago, and heard her stuff on several movies and TV Shows. But I lost track of her until I saw her interview on Relevant. She’s come a long way since that first album. “Paper Skin” is just her singing with a piano and it is amazing. Being the daddy of a little girl, the song “Daddy” especially moved me. You can read an interview with here on Relevant, listen to her music on MySpace, or buy in on iTunes.
Rue Royale – The Search for Where to Go EP
I found Rue Royale after reading an interview with them on Infuze. They are a husband and wife duo with simple guitar rhythms and amazing melodic harmonies. They remind me of the sound of Coldplay or Sufjan Stevens. You can also grab their EP on iTunes.
