It’s Thursday! That means tomorrow is payday (thank the gods), and it’s almost the weekend!
As I write this, I’m still trying to decide on what music to share today, as I’ve come across four new artists in the last hour alone. Trying to pick one or two to share is always a daunting task. My life’s mission is to share all the music that I find, though I doubt it actually happens. Even so, I’m determined to try!
Since I have yet to decide, I’ll start things off with This Is Beard, a website/awareness campaign started by Australian Scott Maggs, though he is better known around the Internet as “Jimmy Niggles.” That’s how I first came across him and his fantastic beard–in case you were not aware, I’m a pogonophile, a lover of beards–a few months ago on Pinterest. But it wasn’t until last week that I finally got around to Googling his name. (With a name like Jimmy Niggles, how can you NOT Google him?!) I’m glad I did, because the story behind his beard & website is something that needs to be heard. Here’s the story Jimmy’s own words:
9: 30 am and I’m up to five, now. And we have a winner! This guy is the best of the morning by far, and I’ve only heard two songs. Let me introduce you to Jacob Thomas, Jr. It’s just him & his guitar, and that’s all it needs. Hear for yourself.
His debut, Original Sin, is available to download off of his website, and you can get two tracks free on Brite Revolution.
In other music news, Fleetwood Mac are going on tour this fall! They aren’t coming to Oklahoma, but they will be in Dallas. Close enough! I don’t think I can allow myself to miss this.
One last thing: it’s TBT!
That does it for today. Look out for a QOTD post later today!
