Today’s artist is Speaker Davis.  I have never met him in person even though we have been friends for years.  I don’t remember exactly how, but I came across his music on Myspace back in 2005.  I would play his songs on my profile page and we would write eachother emails and were email pals (vs pen pals).  We have kept in touch over the years always filling each other in on the new happenings in our lives.  I want to share his talent with you because I have always loved his music and I want to help spread the word!!

A few of years ago, my buddy Nate made me a couple of Cd’s.  They were a bunch of different artists; Matt and Kim, Passion Pit, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Miike Snow.  I have listened to the Cd’s a lot but I probably haven’t in the past couple of months.  Every few weeks I go to the library and I pick a couple of Cd’s to listen to.  It’s pretty cool because you can check out up to 100 items and it’s free (as long as nothing becomes overdue!).  So, I’ll get like 4-5 Cd’s along with our books and that’s what we listen to in the van.  We have a 6 disc CD changer in the van and there’s usually a kid’s CD in disc 6 and Full Hundred Band in disc 1.

Jah Works, Scotty Paynter, Big Vizion and Full Hundred Band

I usually focus on a song on Tuesdays but this time I am going to focus on a couple bands!

I first heard this band in my early 20′s.  They are a band from Baltimore, Maryland.  Maybe you’ve heard of them?!  They are……. JAH WORKS!!  I was working at Seacrets Bar and Grill in Ocean City, Maryland years ago and they would play 4-5 nights every other week.  I would hear the first song start because Natty Roc would blow on his saxophone for the LONGEST time and then they would begin with the awesome Ken Boothe song, ‘Everything I Own‘.  The dj’s would spin Jah Works regularly all day long so I was listening to their music constantly.  I fell in love!  Over time, I got to know the band and they were the nicest guys ever.  So nice and so humble.  If you really like a band and then you get to meet them, it could be a make or break deal.  If they are arrogant or pompous, that is the biggest turn off ever and it could mean your fan status has been discontinued.  At least that is how it is for me.
