I couldn't resist to immediately putting this song up from Rosi Golan. Her voice makes you melt, while she sings with ease through beautiful melodies. This singer/songwriter knows how to write and sing whimsical songs. Rosi's songs have been featured on television shows such as One Tree Hill. Her brand new album, Lead Balloon drops on August 30th. If you like this, make sure to check out her other music on iTunes or visit her website, rosigolan.com. Enjoy this song "Paper Tiger"!

Here's another fun one to listen to! Dave Barnes has been around for a while, but has always flown just under the mainstream radar, which in my opinion is a good thing. He is a great songwriter and it shows in every one of his songs. His latest album, What We Want, What We Get, shined with great songs like "God Gave Me You" (recently re-recorded by country mega star Blake Shelton) and a duet with Jonny Lang "What I Need" (if you don't know Jonny Lang, do yourself a favor and check him out). Below is "Little Lies", a fun catchy song that is perfect for your driving playlist. Enjoy and I dare you not to get this stuck in your head. Want more from Dave?

I'll admit it, Mat Kearney is almost too big to be featured on this site, but when great music is released, great music must be recognized. Mat Kearney released Young Love yesterday, and it is one of the best albums of the year (to my taste). From Track 1... to even the bonus tracks, every track will tug on a different heart string. Young Love is a journey through Kearney's recent life. From falling in love, to a beautiful song in tribute to his dad called "Rochester", Kearney's songwriting and innovating combination of rap and mesmerizing melodies will take you away from everyday life. Do yourself a HUGE favor and pick this one up. Its available on iTunes now. Also follow him on twitter at @matkearney. Below enjoy one of my favorites off the album called "Count On Me".

Jon McLaughlin has had quite the career and he only continues. He recently just released a new single called "What I Want" that will be on his album that will be released this September (Its available for FREE on noisetrade!!!). While researching what he has been up to the past year, I came across a mash up of a song he recorded, but it didn't make the cut for his OK Now album. Beyonce later rewrote the song and recorded it for her I Am.. Sasha Fierce album. Jon's version was called "Smack Into You", while Beyonce's was released as "Smash Into You". Featured below is Jon's version, as well as the mashup of the two versions. Both are BRILLIANT. As well, for good measure I threw in the song that officially made me a fan of Jon McLaughlin called "Questions". Enjoy!
