Happy Thursday! It’s time for my weekly feature showcasing new artists… this week: Anderson Paak!

I discovered this next artist, Anderson Paak, months ago long before he performed on the Grammys. My social media goddess, Kaitlin, share his performance with me on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts. I was instantly hooked on his sound and writing skills. He is wise beyond his age when it comes to music!

Anderson Paak was raised on the old school soul classics like James Brown and Marvin Gaye. Watching him perform live in a low key setting magnifies his musical talents even more. It’s much harder to perform like that in the raw, than it is when you got all the production behind you.

There is no doubting his fresh new sound and the start of great music career.

Check it his performance below!
